Found Gold

One of the most challenging aspects of tackling a new lifestyle, especially one on the scale of a complete dietary change, is finding a personal niche in the new spot. The raw food lifestyle seems to be mostly people who are young and vibrant and have lived that way for all of their young lives. …

The End is Near

A good end, that is.  The end of all-things-busy is about to give way to a summer of greater ease and some built in relaxation. Right?? I have been saying this for a few weeks now, anticipating that the following week is slowing down.  And, to some degree, that has come about with each passing…

A Week-plus in the Bag

It is hard to believe it has been over a week.   A somewhat rocky period, but I am learning that perfection is not the goal. If I looked at the time in its entirety, I would say that my food was 85% raw, usually very simple. Lots of just plain old fruit in all its…

Day One, Day Two. Repeat.

Day One. Great day. Fruit all morning and into the afternoon. Huge salad for an early dinner. Day Two. Banana-date smoothie. Drank through the morning into the afternoon. That was the last good thing on day two. Thus, I am back on day one today. In hindsight evaluation, did I learn anything?  YES!! -Smoothies do…

Only By Prayer and God’s Grace

So Rawsome Summer 2019, phase one begins in the morning. Raw til 4.  I can eat any and all rawness and then have a cooked vegan dinner if I desire. I have strode away from vegan in bits and pieces.  Sometimes having some meat, sometimes some cheese. The occasional egg.  That ends, because I know…

I Could Call it a Depth Year

So in my random  perusing on the Internet today, I came up with an idea that started circulating in early 2018, this idea of a Depth Year. Lots of articles and blogposts, and even a Facebook group, all spun off this idea: spend a year in the old not in the new. Instead of starting…

Rawsome Summer 2019

A few years ago, I spent the months of June, July and August eating 100% raw. As I look back it was the best summer ever.  I am not sure why I have not done that since then, but it is time to breathe life back into the Rawsome Summer program!!  Only I am gonna…

Happy Resurrection Day

There is an expectation in the air that is heavy and loud. Because before Easter, there had to be Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, which really contained nothing GOOD.  At least for Jesus physically.  He had a lot of horrific things to endure before Resurrection Sunday morning. This future morning was what Scripture called “the…

Clean as a Whistle

I have eaten some truly yummy food this week. And I have eaten some things that were not so great.  I decided to do a 7 day cleanse, and my daughter is doing it along with me. We are following a cleanse that is part of FMTV (Food Matters TV). If you don’t know about…

The End Part

I am in the End Part of life. There’s no way to know how long this end will last, so it is a wide open end, for sure. If life could be viewed as an amusement park ride, we all know a roller coaster would be the correct choice. All the ups and downs; all…
