Happy Memorial Day

It feels like Sunday since my husband is at home with me today. I have every Monday off from my part-time job for school and editing, but it’s a holiday here in the US. It’s Memorial Day, and I’d love to use this moment to give my thanks to all who have served this country,…

Holiday BBQ

It’s a holiday weekend here in the US, and holiday weekends used to mean lots of food. They still do, but the food has changed. Where we used to eat burgers with buns, potato and pasta salads, and corn from a can with root beer, we now apparently make vegan burgers, big green salads, and…

Saturday FAQ and Vegan Lentil Burger Recipe

I have now decided that Saturday will be a FAQ day. The more I talk about this diet and lifestyle with you guys, the more I find that certain common questions are generally asked. So I’ll put together a list on Saturday if I have a few of them to go over so everyone can…

Not a “Diet” and Too Many Brownies!

I have wonderful friends. True friends. People who have my back and understand my choices because they’ve listened to me. It was incredible to hear a friend tell me about how she set the record straight to someone about my diet and lifestyle. She knows the deal because we’ve talked about it over the months….

Cut the Cravings Completely

Today I was asked how long it took for me to get over cravings for processed, fast, and junk foods. My response was 5 days. As previously mentioned, I completed a juice fast. It took me 5 days. I hope you’re putting two and two together right now. After a five-day juice fast, where I…

Wednesday Weigh-In: A lot of calories!

Today is weigh-in day! I also ate like a pig today apparently. However, even after eating all that stuff, I was still hungry. Working out more consistently means I need to eat more. But luckily I eat all things that are good for me. Completely raw until dinnertime today, so I’m happy with that. Tomorrow…

Pump It Up

Exercise is so important to overall health. It’s crucial to find something you enjoy so you’ll stick with it. 3-4 times a week you should be getting your heart rate up and putting some effort into a workout of some kind. Dance, go for a run, walk your dog, play with your kids, jump on…

Taste the Rainbow (And Fat!)

I’ve been an editing ROCK STAR today! It always helps when the book is absolutely addicting. It’s a sequel, so I’m happy to revisit with some old characters. Either way, I got a lot done, and it’s just what I needed after a weekend of taking it easy in the woods with friends. Back to…

Camping 101

I learned how to poop in the wild this weekend. I also learned that my phone is seriously trying to break up with me, and perhaps I should let it. These are actually connected, but it’s a silly story. See below. Either way, I had a glorious weekend with great friends, living foods, and wild…

Going Camping

Ever want to ask raw foodies how it is they can live off just fruits and veggies? Well, sometimes I bet they wonder how you live off processed foods. It goes the same way. I wonder how I made it on a diet like that. No one likes to feel tired all the time. I…
