Please educate yourself on what you're supporting.
This is an article on the recent lawsuits against Chiquita: …Continue

I have yet another song to quote this time. The song is called “The World Is Mine (I Don’t Know Anything) by Alex Day.
My strings are broken and my heart is out of tune
I wanted quiet but all I see is you
I don’t know anything
I stumbled forward and you let me walk away
We both know I’ll be running back to…
before to switch to a vegan diet ( at least 80% raw ) even if it's not 100% raw i was eating what i think was normal in term of quantities.
when i started to switch and since 3 years i feel i'm doing wrong....my breakfast is usually raw and consist about a green smoothie + fruits or only fruits - my launch is usually the same - mean fruit or green/fruits smoothies or datorade with bananas - and the dinner is raw+cooked food
But i feel like a bulimic because it's like…Continue

Last night I ate a high fat diet, not raw, but I remembered what it was like to eat high fat all the time, eventually after buying so many raw "superfoods" and supplements, I couldn't stick to raw anyway, and ate a cooked high fat diet. This was due to following David Wolfe's advice. We frequented Sunfood forums, knew many people who were closely related with the movement and subscribed to the best scam ever dot com. I wrote a blog about why I feel it is important to speak out against raw…Continue

hello everyone! happy memorial day to those that are in the states.
So a couple days ago I forced myself to watch Earthlings. Within about 5 minutes I was already bawling. That documentary had the largest effect on me than anything I have ever seen before. Being LFRV for about a month I feel like it has changed my whole outlook on eating vegan. Part of me doesn't care about losing weight or all the benefits of eating the way nature intended humans on eating, I feel like now I am doing…Continue
The heat in West Virginia is a special, insidious, extremely humid heat that sucks the air right out of your chest. Or, at least it used to, before 811. And as a pale, pasty person who comes from a very, very long line of pale and pasty people, I sunburn just thinking about the summer sun. Or, at least I used to, before 811.
Harley said in one of his videos that going 811 makes you more resistant to heat, and others have said getting proper nutrition makes you very resistant…Continue

Not sure how blogs works, I think they are the journals. Hence here it goes
Hello All! For those of you who know me, and those of you who don't- i am happy to announce that my partner Laki and i are having a baby!! It is early days yet (just under a month), and i would like to start putting my tentacles out from now in reach of any information, advice, leads in regards to a raw vegan pregnancy! I want to do all things the natural way of course.... so if you have any info about anything to do with natural pregnancy/birth/child raising/schooling/baby products etc, it…Continue
Well, so far the diary is going well. It is really letting me know that getting enough calories is essential to my sleep pattern. That's why I'm pounding datorade today, because I MUST get up to at least 2700 calories before I can sleep. Yesterday, I didn't do that (missed by only 400 calories and got too full to fix it), and I ended up pulling an almost-all-nighter. Today, I WILL get to at least 2700 calories. I'll be up to 1960 with Meal 2 (doing that now), so I'll have two smaller meals…Continue

A Big Disclaimer: This is just a topic for discussion. A “dig deep” kind of thought process. I am not hating Fluffy, Bunny or Spot, really I’m not. Just trying to see how far our ideologies go. So, take this in how it was intended. A deep thought shared.I’d love to open it up for everyone’s input: How So here we go: How do you feel about pet ownership? Really. Honestly. How about from a Vegan-Compassion-Whole-Planet-Healing- Economy perspective?

I weighed 195lbs my blood pressure was at an all time high, 95/150; my doctor was ready to place me in the hospital. My wife warned me I would die many more years before her, and it wasn’t because I was a man but simply because I was too stupid to take care of myself. I didn’t care enough about myself to bother with getting off my #%&#!*, and start moving around.
My story is very much like yours. I hear it everyday from people…Continue
I have a new-found respect for the grit of Triple T athletes. Even though the venue is beautiful, the three day triathlon festival in Portsmouth, Ohio is nothing short of bestiality.
Here's the pecking order of toughness as I see it:
Putting red hot coals in your underwear > American Triple T Triathlon> All Ironman events (except for St. George allegedly) > Lil Smokie 1/2 Ironman (one day of the Triple T)> All other 1/2 Ironmans > Scrabble with my wife >…
