God Help me – I’m on a 30-day Juice Cleanse

Okay, so now I’m going through it. Withdrawal. From food and chewing. I started my juicing cleanse yesterday, on Monday. All good diets start on Monday or the first of the month or the first of the year. Why? Because we need time to get adjusted emotionally to our new state of consumption. Going 100% […]

Escaping the Gravitational Pull of My Conditioning

I peeked at the scale today, one day early. It was Sunday morning and I’d committed to weighing myself only on Monday mornings. I was shocked. I’d only lost 1.4 lbs. since my weigh-in last Monday. I’d started exercising, walking 5 days last week (sometimes twice in a day). So I just knew the scale […]

This is a strange confession coming from a raw-food lifestyle teacher but.. After class I have the urge to go out to eat cooked food – and most of the time I used to indulge. Last night after class, the urge hit me. I wanted something that was savory and substantive and ethnic. Visions of my […]

My Soul’s Address

The satisfaction and self-esteem that I’ve gained from keeping my promise to myself has allowed me to stop dreaming about food. (I’m praying that this continues […]


We, the People, used to grow/raise our own food and ferment or preserve it. Now, most of us are at least two generations from knowing how to produce and preserve our own food. We’re mostly dependent upon the food industry for just about everything. And we’re dependent upon the pharmaceutical industry for everything else. What’s […]

Keeping My Word

I promised I would share the gifts the universe brought to me when I asked for help. Today I want to share Christopher Maher, my soul brother. I met him in 2006 when I was looking for help with my son, Joshua.  Joshua was always angry.  I heard that this man, Chris, had a way of stretching […]
