Day 32 & 33 on my Raw Vegan Diet

Nourishing your Body Mind and Soul is loving Life, and loving Yourself.

Today is my 33rd day on my Raw Vegan Adventure.

I feel like a sponge soaking up so much information and so many great nutrients that my body very much needs after years of nutritional abuse by my own sorry self..unknowingly of course..but I just wasn't educated, and because of that I made poor nutritional choices. Now I know better! I want to share with as many people as possible the health benefits of feeding our bodies..not just dead food that makes our poor body's work too the point where we succumb to disease and chronic illness..But I want to share how wonderful it is to actually nourish and heal your body through proper nutrients. It is simple...EAT Live Food...Rich in enzymes and nutrients. Your body assimilates the nutrients...and absorbs it easily..rushing the life giving packages of goodness along the body's super highway to our cells...Life..Alive!! Wow!! Stop poisoning yourself with refined chemically treated foods...start eating organic produce and less chemically fed and enhanced animal protein. It is easy..after you research for 5 min you can see it is a no brainer...Our North American diets are killing us. Period.

Today I started my day out with a large glass of water
Then I had a Glass of freshly juiced Grapefruit juice with some Ashwagandha Powder.
I am using the Ashwagandha Powder to stimulate my immune system. It also has properties called Withanoloids, that consist of steroidal molecules which act to fight inflammation. It also balances Hormones and creates a calming effect, so it is also good for stress relief.

Today I made a smoothie full of Super foods and amazing supplements.

3 cups of ionized water
2 oz of chia seeds soaked to a gel...see this post to find out about Chia seeds and how to prepare
1 apple
1 hand full of spinach
1 banana
3 spears of pineapple
1 cup of frozen fruit; strawberries, mango, peaches, blueberries, grapes, cantelope.
1 scoop of Vegan supplement powder
2 Tbsp of hemp protein powder
1 Tsp of PUREessentials Green concentrate
2 oz of Himalayan Goji Berry juice
1 Tbsp of raw organic coconut oil

* This smoothie tasted amazing! It is also so full of great things.

Wow..I have to say that I have not felt better in years..I feel great today. I am happy and in a great mood. I feel like my fun self again- I knew she was hiding in there somewhere!! LoL I have a lot of energy, and I feel like moving...exercising..I feel amazingly alive inside. For those of you that don't know me; I have arthritis. I have had it since I was 21. I will make a post just on that one day , but for now all we need to know is that usually I have joint pain as I go along my everyday activities. Today, however, I have NO joint pain. I'll say it again..I have NO JOINT PAIN!! Amazing.

The combination of the Ashwagandha, the Goji juice and the Chia Seeds are a really wonderful anti-iflamatory rescue team. I am so glad they all came to me from different sources to create a combination that really has given me a great deal of relief and I can't say enough about how much that means to me...

-Today I am thankful that are bodies are able to heal themselves when given the right opportunities.

-I am thankful for the knowledge that I need to bring myself back to perfect health.
..and my life back to perfect harmony.

-I am thankful for a supportive and loving family, and for suppportive friends and a loving and supportive companion/boyfriend.

-I am thankful for my green smoothie that is there with me everyday through this healing process, giving me a buffet of different fruits and leafy greens each day.

- I am thankful to Aleesha (My Raw food Coach) who handed me a wonderful gift in the form of Chia seeds. I knew about them...but I probably wouldn't have tried them...and I had no idea How many health benefits they carried in such a small seed. Thank you.. thank you!

Ok, I want to yell it from the hill tops....

I feel great!! YEY!!


  1. I LOOOOOVE your blog!
    My friend Kate Magic writes a great blog which might interest you greatly. She's an artist,a fabulous raw foodie with several published books and an all-round wonderful person:

  2. I've been putting ground chia seeds in my smoothies off and on since the 70s. I found out they were used by indigenous peoples of this land way back for energy and stamina.

    I like your info on chia so I can soak and make it into a cereal. I've never done that before! It's new! ;)

    Blessings and light back atcha.
