Right after I made that last post about not making any more excuses and holding myself accountable, I left for a 5 week work trip. I also happened to come down with the flu on that very same day. It then turned to a respiratory infection, and long story short I'm still feeling like utter crap a week later. I've been sleeping for long periods of time and I had to take two more days off of work (I'm almost out of sick days by this point!) I'm feeling frustrated, and I'm wondering if trying…Continue

As human beings, the purpose of our existence is to BE. It is only from this state of being that we become deliberate creators of our reality and, as a result, manifest whatever it is we desire. Our physical actions are merely the result of our state of being and product of our wishes.
When we feel emotions such as joy and happiness, it's easy to describe life as being 'Perfect.' Everything seems to 'flow' when we're happy, appreciative, and full of joy. This is why it's so important…Continue
I feel life is like a menu. I can only get what I want when I first decide and then choose what it is I desire.
It is my dream to live happily and healthfully in a large (500 + people) fruitarian based community on the most sustainable island of Hawaii 365 days a year. I intend to use my urine to nutrify the soil, and my feces to plant the seeds for organic, non-gmo, fruit trees. I want to water the plants with diluted ocean water too. I want to live sustainably and be an…Continue
What did you do this weekend??

IDK what to do. I made a quart (yes a quart) of my own invented green drink for dinner. I wasn't thinking while I was making it. I put an entire tray of asparagus in there. Don't follow my example. I can barely stomach it. And I LOVE green drinks.
Delicious raw soups recipes for cold winter days :)
Many raw food vegans and others who are simply trying to eat healthier diets fear holiday gatherings. I understand being concerned about what others will think/say, being a polite guest, and finding a healthy, satisfying meal that you will enjoy.…Continue
Michele has inspired me to give 100% another go.
She laid forth a green smoothie challenge on Facebook..... not sure of the details - but am starting today.
Cooked dinner is leaving me feeling a bit heavy and congested.
bananas + dates + salad
veg juice + apples, raisins, figs, cinnamin + salad
Some days are a mix...
It's been more than 3 weeks without meat and I am truly feeling great. I have learned so much from to 80/10/10 book and have been eliminating grains, dairy, beans, cooked food, and less fat.
I truly enjoy eating so many fruits each day and only having to eat lettuce. It's simplified grocery shopping and packing lunches for work.
Benefits Noticed so far: weight better, acne better, mood better

Now I've been on and off %100-80 raw for about 2 years now and I must say that this community has to be the most entertaining bunch of people I will ever witness.
Example: David Wolfe: Westerners actually buy into his bullshit and buy things like deer placenta and believe that something will charge you INDEFINITELY! Yes, and floating mushrooms exist and DurianRider is a murderer.
DurianRider: The guy gets flak for speaking his mind and telling the truths about what is…Continue
I don't know what it is, but every time I see raw or cooked meat, it makes me body hurt, like as gross as it sounds it feels like those are my organs that people want to eat. I don't even understand why people eat meat in the first place, its flesh from an animal that was once living. I almost want to tell people, "A creature died so you can be fat". haha, I'm kinda mean about it sometimes, but I'm really passionate about this, I hate what we do to animals in this world, its sickening. One…Continue
Just as in the 811 Way of Life we know that "Cooked" foods are Life Stealing I've always wondered if there was a way while the money system still exist and must be navigated within to produce "RAW Money?"
I have found such a way! It can be done globally as a Professional Blogger. Why blog for free when you could be getting paid?

Just posting to say that I have been won over to the dark side of low fat vegan!!! ;)
I have been trialling this now for a few weeks, to see how it would compare to my high raw lowish carb diet for energy, mood, candida, looks/weight, type 1 diabetes control and recovery from bulimia.
I haven't done 811rv rigidly. I have been doing overt free/fruits/greens/max 1 portion of cooked beans each day during the week. At weekends, if I have wanted a cooked vegan…Continue
So I've been MIA for a while because I haven't been following the lifestyle. I'm so embarrassed! But enough is enough now and I'm getting back on. Dec 7th I'm planning a BI "trip". I realize I really need support right now!! If anyone if willing to help me out or be kind of a buddy through this I'd appreciate it so much. I have major digestive issues, acne that has come back, I'm tired, feel sick and achy, not to mention I have about 25 extra lbs on me right now. It's awefull!!! I'm doing…Continue
I went out a 2 mile run this morning with my dogs at 6:30 am. It had stopped raining when we left and after about 5 minutes the hail started. We ran the rest of the route so fast and we got soaked! Not that my labs minded to much.
Need the rest of the day to go okay as yesterday was majorly bad with eating disorder behaviours or the bulimic kind :'(
I want this out of my life, I'm tired of it.

Nothing is really in season here right now other than citrus. I like oranges, but I don't know if I can dedicate my winter kitchen to oranges all the time.
So I went to the store today and bought a huge pineapple, and two massive papayas! They will be worth the money I'm sure. The pineapple still needs to ripen, but the papayas are ready for breakfast tomorrow.
I also picked up some carob powder, I really want to figure out a fruit substitute so I can make that pie Megan…Continue
