I just had a big watermelon lunch and it is affecting me like drugs, I’m experiencing such a rush o f energy right now! I just spent 10 minutes doing bicycle crunches, arm circles, and front jabs. Go fruit yourself!
I know what I described is not a lot of exercise, but I'm healing both a broken wrist and a broken foot right now so it takes a lot more energy to do a small amount of activity. I still feel amazing!
I have a blog where I write about the 801010 lifestyle, and I get a lot of questions. This morning, someone asked me to explain the ins and outs of dietary thermogenesis. I'm not a doctor or an expert(YET), but I think I did a pretty good job so here's what I wrote, feedback would be appreciated :)
"I’m still a newb in many ways, I’ve only been at this for just over a year and am self-educating rather than paying for someone else to tell me what the government told them to tell me.…Continue
So my school just sent me a list of course material that I’ll need, books and the like.
And I’m having second thoughts.
The first book I looked up advises cutting out all processed foods, but eating yogurt once a day. Not only is yogurt processed, but it will wreck your health. Dairy will absolutely wreck any healthy efforts, whether the negative affects pop up right away or later in life.
The book I’m looking at now talks a lot about which supplements you should…Continue
And that is how quickly so many of the forum discussions here turn catty! I've seen a person get ganged up on one too many times in discussions here- by adults! By full grown adults. It's very disheartening and I feel like it really goes against the whole philosophy of this site, which is raw, fruity, peaceful living!
Just once I would like to get through a discussion feeling supported and educated, not fearful that if someone disagrees with my input, I'm next.
So yesterday was Worldwide Vegan Pizza Day. I decided to take the night off from HCRV so that I could share vegan pizza with my three good friends who I feel are SO CLOSE to making the switch from SAD to vegan. They've expressed dismay at the thought of giving up cheese, so I thought this would be a great opportunity. And it was, we made some fancy pizzas that tasted delicious and my younger brother decided to go vegan again(had fallen off the wagon after a two month go) right there on…Continue
So yesterday I did not have nearly as much food as I thought I did. I only had enough orange juice to cover breakfast and greens for later on. I had no options. None of my bananas are near ripe nor could I access ripe ones, or ripe anything for that matter that was also organic- I'm extremely sensitive to pesticides and always have been so I don't even try with non-organic, sooo not worth the burning in my mouth and stomach pain, etc.
First, I tried to get my hands on some dried…Continue
I went HCRV because I truly believed that it would heal my body from the damage I did to it, and the damage that the early years of eating SAD and not being all too active did. I believe that HCRV is not only the healthiest way for people to live, but that it is the kindest to the planet. I understand the fear of gaining weight, but this is supposed to be a forum that promotes HEALTH of body, mind, and spirit- not pleasing aesthetics. I take it personally when people say…Continue
I blame toxic cosmetics/soaps/creams/etc for my skin still being significantly less than flawless. Therefore, among a couple other changes, I have decided to make my own face wash from now on. I mixed rolled oats, raw turbinado sugar, and mashed blueberries with a little water and used it as a facial exfoliate in the shower just now and WHAT. THE @&%#. As I was using it I could already feel the difference. My skin has never been softer or smoother in my life. Another bonus is not…Continue
To regrow celery from store bought celery, keep the end of the stock (the part you don’t eat) and soak it in water for a few days. When leaves appear from the center and grow about an inch or two in height, plant in soil covering the stock (not the leaves). When matured, cut celery just above the dirt line then cover the remaining stock with a layer of soil and…Continue
