Protest Thanksgiving (quotes)

"Imagine that Germany won World War II and that a Nazi regime endured for some decades, eventually giving way to a more liberal state with a softer version of German-supremacist ideology. Imagine that a century later, Germans celebrated a holiday offering a whitewashed version of German/Jewish history that ignored that holocaust and the deep antisemitism of the culture. Imagine that the holiday provided a welcomed time…

Are ALL vegans university drop outs and hippies or do we simply know better?

Hello. So I made a Tumblr post earlier today and thought about posting it here, it seems very relecant after thinking about it for a while. I do ramble a lot but if you are vegan for ethical reasons and believe in creativity you might geel a little of what I felt whilst writin this, I kind of found out my purpose in this community.

As I grew up, attending school as it was expected from society, I had teachers encouraging me to follow my “passion” – whatever that may be – but to find… Continue

9 year Vegan Anniversary

I am certain that I was vegetarian for several days to a week before Veganism. I remember having shrimp for the first time and feeling disgusted with my decision to eat animal flesh after understanding the cruelty. That day, the first Sunday in April, I officially stopped eating animal flesh. After several days of vegetarianism, I realized I was contradicting my beliefs by continuing to have a milk and eggs in my diet with Ranch dressings, ice creams, and such. So towards the middle of April…

Baby Baby

Recently I asked a friend of mine, a lady with considerable knowledge of all facets of pregnancy both personally and via others' experiences, for her take on this vital process of life and on how a mother might best meet with success for herself and her little one. 

So impressed was I by her wisdom, that I asked her to write her thoughts down.  Given the positive reception the few times I've shared it, it's time for a larger audience to have the opportunity to benefit.…

What are we physically and physiologically designed to eat?

The human gastrointestinal tract features the anatomical modifications consistent with an herbivorous diet. Humans have muscular lips and a small opening into the oral cavity. Many of the so-called "muscles of expression" are actually the muscles used in chewing. The muscular and agile tongue essential for eating, has adapted to use in speech and other things. The mandibular joint is flattened by a cartilaginous plate and is located well above the plane of the teeth. The temporalis muscle is…

But How Long Will It Take???

A friend of mine who was going through a really hard time a few years back told me about a Buddhist fable regarding patience, diligence, and enlightenment. Here is a truncated version of that story:


A young but earnest Zen student approached his teacher, and asked the Zen Master:

"If I work very hard and diligent how long will it take for me to find Zen?"

The Master thought about this, then replied, "Ten years."

The student…

3 Stories from My Life

When I was  8 years old, my cousin and I were playing with small metal springs —trying to stretch them out. He stretched his straight by holding it in his teeth, and pulling on it — I tried it & my spring lodged in my throat. My breathing was a little constricted & I started to cry. My father rushed in and tried the Heimlich maneuver but it didn’t work. He turned me upsidedown and smacked me between the shoulder blades —no luck. My dad tried to stay calm but I could see he was…

The differences between the 80/10/10 diet and The Banana Girl Diet

It's a fairly common question so I thought I would address it! 811 and The Banana Girl Diet are not the same and it wouldn't be fair to either system to call them the same. In this blog I have outlined the key differences I've identified --->

What is the Banana Girl Diet?

Hey fruit bats : )

A lot of people ask me to explain what the Banana Girl Diet is exactly so I decided to write a blog about it. The Banana Girl Diet is not exactly the same as the 80/10/10 Diet and I have explained why in the blog. Not only is it inaccurate to call it this but the differences are important and make a big impact on the overall result attained. Please take a moment to check it out ---> …

Seeing the World Clearly...


Many things can change our perspective on the world: difficult experiences, a poignant book or story, meeting someone, losing someone, just deciding to become a more contented soul and working at it every day. The change may be gradual or instantaneous, but either way you will find that your view of life becomes clearer and you see everything in a new way.

Life is Unexpected...


People say you need plenty of clouds in your life if you want a beautiful sunset in the end. But back when I was dying, I didn't think there'd be enough sunshine to light up all the clouds. Now I know I'll have enough sunlight for the most dazzling sunset imaginable. And I hope other people will enjoy it too! :)

Wishing you a…

More about my Health Story...and some Musings on Life :)


Some of you know a bit about my health background already. Some of you probably only know me as the happy healthy person I am today. And that’s because as yet I haven’t shared that much detail about the years I spent sick, perhaps because they matter so little now, and perhaps because they aren’t a period in my life that I want to revisit all that much. But today I decided I want to share with you a bit more about my personal journey with raw food and eating a fruit-based diet, in…
