It will not be as long as last year (49 days), do not have the time before committments that will need my mtn climbing with a pack energy.
With new perspective, I now do not recommend long fasts (over 10 days) unless you have serious healing to do, and recommend a fasting coach for over 5 days, or over 10 days for the experienced…Continue
Yesterday I finished my first full all raw, high fruit day! Yeah! I feel pretty good today, except this headache that's lingered with me from yesterday. I'm very surprised that I have no cravings today, either. Anyway, I'm just really excited about it.
Tonight we're taking my son to Los Cabos for dinner and my cousin's band is playing. I've already perused the menu and there's not one thing there that's even close to being vegan, much less…Continue

So I admit at this point in time I have only made it to page 80 of my 80/10/10 book. I am learning a lot from it as well as this site. I thought I would share some mistakes that I made as a newbie to avoid
1. Grapefruit- never use grapefruit as a mono. You will never get enough calories and revert back to cooked food to get the sour taste out of your mouth.
2. Coconuts are not 80/10/10. Some mornings I would skip breakfast and go straight into running. When I would finish I…Continue
Yup... So I have done well keeping up to blogging every day in April but the thing I haven’t kept up with is saying what is beautiful for every day. *Naughty Heather*
Today was a blah day because of all the rain and the lack of sunshine... Oh how I miss thee my fair son *stares…Continue

So I've been veering away from most animal products but eating a little milk and cheese in sandwiches (not good, I know). I'm officially challenging myself to a high-raw, whole foods vegan challenge on the road to eventually permanently transitioning to LFRV.
Here's what's on the menu for the next two weeks:
all the raw fruit and vegetables I can find (80% of what I will be eating)
salads at dinner
oatmeal with cinnamon and Grade B organic Maple…Continue

Yay another rainy day! So what does one do on a rainy day? Exercise? Well no I was a lazy bum and haven’t worked out since Thursday. I did however give Richard Simmons a run for his money... He may have sweating to the oldies going for him but today I had sweating to the mouldies!

So I just started a vegetarian diet with my boyfriend two weeks ago. Its not the first time either of us have tried or done it, but neither of us were as well informed or committed to the task of health and real compassion for the world and its creatures. Unfortunately I still don't feel like I have the budget or the know how to convert fully to the all-fruit diet but I am trying :) and so is he.
So far we have been making LOTS of salads and blending LOTS of…Continue

Forgive me for not blogging often! JEEEEEZ I haven't even blogged since Hawaii...so much has changed. For example, I DON'T EVEN EAT BANANAS ANYMORE! I wouldn't recomend anyone else ditching bananas, but for me, they cause chest pain in the sternum area...similar to heartburn. It's been occuring for years and I've finally decided to put an end to it. My body clearly is telling me something with that discomfort...LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!
Before I raced I…Continue
Hoppy Easter everyone!
Now that I have that over with... Holy Doctor Who!!!! That was a fantastic episode but that was one heck of a cliff hanger! I am really hoping that they show Doctor Who in Cuba because that is where I will be on Saturday and I really want to see the second…Continue

As many of you will know from reading my blogs or personally knowing me, I am not pro raw gourmet “cooking” .. I support eating foods in their natural, unadultered state,, and I believe that transformation of any kind is detrimental to good nutrition ..
I have been 100 % low fat raw vegan for over 8 months now, and my diet is primarily made of fresh fruit, greens, sprouts, carob as well as a few nuts and seeds and occasionally dried figs . Essentially, I live by Douglas…Continue
