So I guess "see you in a few days" became "see you in a month". LOL! Apologies for my delayed update, but I was taking my time since I still had a ton of research to do in writing my assignment and presentation with my group for our thoughts on going raw for 7 days. I wanted to also integrate some of what I'd learned along the way into this post, so hopefully the wait was worth it. I'll try and keep this as tight as possible, so here's the topline of some of the research...Read More
Day 7. LAST DAYYYYYYYY! Wow, that was kinda fast. This is how today went:
7.45am: Pranayama and short yoga practice.
8.20am: Hot water and juice of 1/2 lemon.
8.40am: - Red and Green smoothie. With winter purslane...Read More
Day 6. Nearly there! I went to bed super late last night as was up writing Day 5's post till 2am (!) Woke up naturally at 7am and figured since I was up, I might as well pop something in the dehydrator, so it could be ready for lunch later.

I haven't even had time to process how I'm feeling on this raw diet, as I've just allowed work stress to have its hold over me. I've been reading Dr. Gabriel Cousens' "Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine" classic book on raw food, and he talks about...Read More
Day 2. I've been thinking about how you need to be quite organized with this 100% raw business. So I figured I'd also list out when I start prepping stuff for the upcoming day(s), so you'll get an idea of what comes next. Raw IS quite a bit of work (no wonder all those store-bought raw snacks are so expensive), but I think the trick is to get...Read More
Day 1 of RAWWWWWWWWW! Heh. :)
This is what my food diary for the day looked like:
7.30am: Hot Water + juice from 1/2 Lemon
9.30am: Breakfast = Raw Chia-Oat Porridge. (I usually eat breakfast shortly after the hot water and lemon, but had an early...Read More
