Living the Raw Food Lifestyle – How to Make a Fruit Juice for Breakfast

It seems like forever since we started the raw food lifestyle and it’s a constant learning process. Every day something new is unfolding and revealing itself to us. Often when I’m talking to people about it they say: ‘Hey, so tell me, what do you actually eat on a daily basis?’ It’s quite funny when I realise that they think I’m living off raw carrot sticks and drinking cold water. Brrrrr…. the truth is far from that. And so I … Continue reading

Raw Cacao Versus Commercial Chocolate – Sorry, No Contest!

Whilst transitioning to the raw food lifestyle, I have been exploring all the different options there are for having indulgences whilst still eating really healthily.

Raw Food is the Ultimate Fast Food

I’m so loving all the revelations that are flooding into my consciousness now that I’m moving forward with the raw food lifestyle. It was only a couple of days ago that it became clear to me that that I had discovered yet another benefit to leaving cooked food behind me.

Living the Raw Food Lifestyle – A Little of What You Fancy Goes a Long Way

I was thinking about how I used to plan my days and my meals when I was eating cooked food. My thoughts rotated around what would be the main focus and then what carbs and veggies went with it. Because you had to have your carbs, right? Either rice, pasta, potatoes or grains of some sort.

The Ecstasy of Following a Raw Food Diet

For those of you who don’t yet know, I’ve been following a raw food diet for two whole weeks now. It all began when we attended the amazing spiritual bootcamp led by Genesis Sunfire and were challenged, after starting a full body salt water flush, to change our diet to a more healthy way of living. And so we started the journey. It’s been a total rollercoaster since day one and now, two weeks down the road, there are really … Continue reading
