Share The Gift Of The Vitamix

0 by / on March 6, 2009, 4:27 pm

About a month ago, on a visit to my massage therapist and friend, I brought along one of my raw cacao drinks.  She had always shown interest in my lifestyle and wondered if she could actually do the “raw thing” and still make it through her busy day without being hungry.  I explained what was in it and how I made it.  She was open to trying it and I didn’t hear from her for a few days.  When I did hear from her, it was all good.  She couldn’t believe she wasn’t hungry at the end of the day and that she [...]

Staples To Have On Hand For Your Living(Raw)Food Lifestyle

0 by / on February 5, 2009, 10:41 am

Staple, a basic dietary item.  In my life, it’s not flour, rice or corn, it’s almonds, dates, a sprout bag (ok, that’s not food) and some sort of frozen fruit.  As long as I have these few items, I can eat for a day or more.   Of course, I have more than that in my kitchen, but I always have these items on hand and here are some great recipes for you to make with these items.  Nut Milk –Two cups water in your blender—-I use the Vitamix.  The BlendTec works well also.   I like my pulp as smooth as I can [...]

This Tastes Just Like Coffee! All about RAW!

What happens when you “go raw“?  Below are some great answers to that question.  These come from Karen Knowler, The Raw Food Coach.  I’m sure she wouldn’t mind me sharing.  Because it’s nice to share. 1. You Wake UP! 2. You become more sensitive (things feel much better or worse depending on what they are) 3. You get to hear your own voice more clearly 4. You start to be kinder to yourself and the world around you 5. You start to believe in a more “magical” way of living and being (because you can feel it running through your veins) 6.  You [...]

Choices about what we eat….

0 by / on December 13, 2008, 9:50 pm

We make many choices in the course of our lives.   When I decided to get pregnant, I made the choice to become a vegetarian.  I thought that was the right choice for my baby.  It turned out to also be the right choice for me.  My daughter was born 18 years ago.  At that time there weren’t a lot of choices or places to turn that supported my beliefs.   I didn’t want to give her dairy and I didn’t want to give her meat.  I’ll never forget at each visit to the pediatrician when the doctor would ask her if she was [...]

To Juice Or Not To Juice..That Is The Question..

0 by / on December 5, 2008, 5:46 pm

Oh, who am I kidding.  There’s only one answer here.  JUICE!!! Ghandi said, “Chew your drink and drink your food.”  What does that mean?  Very simple, take the time to liquefy your food before swallowing, and swish your drink around before swallowing.  Liquid is the way to go for assimilation and elimination. The only question I ask myself in the morning is this… “Should I use my Champion juicer or my Vitamix today?”  Or use my own teeth!  I first started seriously juicing over two years ago.  When I went “raw” and bought my Champion, I juiced anything I could [...]

No Thanks. I’d Rather Juice My Wheatgrass!

This is my story on my journey into wheatgrass juicing! If you’ve never heard of wheatgrass juice, you’re not alone.  There are a few entries here about it and one from my brother Michael! Don’t underestimate the healing properties of wheatgrass and wheatgrass juice.  Growing wheatgrass in my apartment and drinking wheatgrass juice may have saved my life when carbon monoxide leaked inside due to an improperly installed gas heater.   Drinking wheatgrass for maintenance also helped me expel a chemical that I’d been using for way too many years  AND a poultice I made from the pulp of wheatgrass cured [...]

Sick of the Same Old Fruit?

0 by / on November 11, 2008, 2:39 pm

Bored with bananas?  Aggravated with apples?  Grumbling about grapes?  Me too. But if you’re like me you discipline yourself to stay healthy.  Is it any wonder most people have trouble sticking with a healthy diet?  Well I have some hope for you my friends.  Below are some alternatives to the old fruit standards to rejuvenate your palate while maintaining your healthy lifestyle. What was Beethoven’s favorite fruit? Banananaaaas!  (That joke is better told out loud where the punch line can be sung to the tune of Beethoven’s 5th.)  But, I think even he would get sick of them after a while… [...]
