Last night I had an amazing discovery. It crystallized some issues I've been experiencing for several years now...I'm not even sure how long. I started writing about it and realized I have a ton more to write about it and I would love to know if any of you can relate to this, because I have seen it with some raw and vegan social situations.
I also feel like I need to jog my memory on some of the subtle thought processes that go on/went on. This is related to eating…Continue
breakfast-1 christmas melon
an hour later, 1.25 liters of fresh orange juice mixed with the juice of 1 heart of romaine and one heart of celery
lunch-1 banana and 570g champagne mangos
snack- 770g pineapple and 440g bananas
exercise-30 min stair machine and 30 minutes hoop dancing
feelings- SO MUCH ENERGY I COULD JUST GO ON FOREVER
Well I'm in the middle of a good intention. My teenage daughter has a summer job, and asked if I would please not make smoothies Friday mornings, as it is her only day to sleep in. Since I've been depending on two giant smoothies to help get me blissfully through each day (along with a few containers of cut up fruit or a few handfuls of dates), and since I blend them all up early in the morning before work, this was a challenge. I decided I'd try to make it a mono-meal day. A noble…Continue
Today I want to talk to you guys about carbing-up, quick meals, and back-up plans!
Firstly, Carbing-Up! We all know that to succeed on a raw vegan diet, it’s crucial that you eat enough food each day, and that the majority of your calories (80% or more) come from carbohydrates. This way you’re full of energy, satisfied, and eating in a way that is sustainable in the long-term. Compared with highly processed foods, or even just non-vegan foods, fruit is a lot less calorie-dense and so…Continue

Harley, iv been following your videos since the very beginning and have a few questions to ask as well as statements to make.
The hardest part of going vegan is the mindset (If you want to do it, you commit, if you don't, it does not get done. It is a split image decision) and the hardest thing about eating fruit is dealing with the family social sphere.
For 1 year now I have been going vegan for 2 days, then breaking it, then raw for 2 days then breaking it. It is one…Continue

Banana/Date smoothie for breakfast. Bananas for morning snack. Dates every 30-60 minutes during bike ride. Nectarines after bike ride. More bananas later. Big salad for dinner.
Over 300 FL OZ of water, and still drinking. I did a 35 mile ride on a 100 Degree Fahrenheit day. I just can't get enough water!!!
35 miles on the road bike. A short walk. That was my farthest ride so far this season, and i would have done more if…Continue

ok. so I began 811 on June 13th. initially had more energy. However, my symptoms have begun to increase and getting worse. Started banana island on Monday, today was day 4. Was hoping that maybe it would help but clearly my body is not ready to be processing all the fruit. :(
Gonna stay LFRV but definitely need to reduce my fruit intake. Because I have been in the advanced stages of adrenal fatigue, I'm not suppose to have any fruit but I was hoping my body could handle it. …Continue
So it has been a little more than three weeks and I feel great. I am starting to see some change in my face and my body. I still have a long ways to go on this journey and I am fighting cravings with carbs. Doing Freelee's challenge has been helpful these past four days...accountability goes a long way for me.
On the GREaT side I am signed up for a mini triathlon for August 18th with a friend. I am totally pumped about doing this. Not only am I signed up but I am also training…Continue
After 3 and a half weeks 811-ish with 1 cooked meal a day, I'm back with the 100% raw.
This isn't a case of feeling like I should eat raw again, it's more that eating a kilo of potatoes was getting a bit laborious, even in a nice tomato based soup. It's so much easier to eat a kilo of bananas! The transition back to raw felt completely natural.
I've had 3 days raw food now and my energy is back up and I'm feeling great - hopefully this will stay a bit longer this…Continue

At first I thought this was going to hard. Not too hard, because I already eat a fairly healthy diet and I was already vegetarian and ate mostly boiled veggies and tofu and whole grains...
But now, after a month and a half of stumbling upon this lifestyle, ALL I CRAVE ARE RAW FRUITS AND VEGS! Like melons, dragon fruit, asian pears, tomatoes, mangoes, and more melons.... and just fresh, juicy, watery stuff!!!! I remember a week ago I was dreaming about my mom's cooked asian food, like…Continue
