Hello fellow raw foodies, I have been vegan for 2 years and LFRV since December 1st 2011. I have always have a bit of digestive problems (initially why I went vegan) and wanted to find a way to eat food and be really energized to run, dance and play in life.

I am in my yoga teacher training and live on the beautiful island of Salt Spring. I found 30 bananas a day a few years ago when I first became vegan, and came back to it this time for the wonderful support, comments and people that it attracts. Thank you to every one out there, Freelee and Harley "Durianrider" for being so full of love, life and energy! You all rock :)

Poetry by Rumi or anything Sufi. I love getting lost in movement, whether it be running, yoga or dance. I feel like I have a perma-grin because life is just so beautiful. I don't stop smiling :)

My movie is my life and the world around me. I am the main character on a mission to get the best out of this life as possible, while along the way falling in love, laughing so hard my tummy hurts, and being surrounded by gorgeous inspiring beings such as yourself ;)

You're welcome. :0)

Hang in there! It definitely gets better. It takes the body a while to heal and adjust but the rewards are so worth it.

Wishing you vibrant health and much joy on your journey...

Hey Chantal,

Thank you so much for your kind words! 

My partner and I have not visited Salt Spring yet but we have friends who participated in a Mud Girls project there. We've heard many good things. We've been traveling around Australia but I'd love to meet up when we're back in the Valley. 

I'm glad to hear that you've ditched the makeup and cleansers! I hope you're experiencing fantastic results. When we stop stripping our skin of its natural moisture it's given the opportunity to be soft and supple, naturally

Life is always wonderful. We're not in the sunshine on Vancouver Island, but we're in the sunshine in Tropical Northern Australia. We'll be back your way come October!

My partner and I have a similar idea of moving south in the winter and coming back north in the summer. Vancouver Island has so much to offer. We'd like to have land with and sustainable tree house. Where are you relocating to down south? 

Thanks again for contacting me :) 

Cheers :)

hi there

So, thank you!!  I am doing better.  I ahve been transitioning for a few months and have had a heck of a time going 100%.  The cravings were crazy.  It is getting better, much better, but still working on it.  Right now, I am on only day 6 of !00%.  I am learning what it takes to get me 80-10-10 all the time.  I am concerned about weight, of course!!  I have gained and it has worried me.  But, I am here, trying really hard.  I so believe in all of this.  Thanks for the amazing posts.  I love the support and information here.

how was your tranistion?
