It’s been a rough couple months. We wrapped up The Get Healthy Summit in June, and as soon as I wasn’t talking about raw foods and natural health 5 times a week, I could feel myself slipping into old ways of thinking. I was still eating green and raw, but a hectic work schedule and […]

Want to know the truth about organic foods? I’ve been reading  a book called Pandora’s Lunchbox and it’s absolutely frightening what goes into most of our store-bought food… Powders, chemicals, emulsifiers, and other poisons… All to either prevent mold and increase shelf life, or to cut down costs for the food manufacturers. Consider these disgusting […]

What Is A Raw (Diet) Menu?

April 8, 2013

0 Comments

Eating out and eating healthy at the same time is a challenging proposition. In fact, it’s proving damn near impossible for me to find a menu with healthy, raw choices on it. Take Carrabbas, for instance. We never ate there all that much, but when we did eat out, we  liked places like Roy’s and  […]

Sorry I haven’t been around blogging much lately. I ran out of gas. I had a flat tire… I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake… A terrible flood. Locusts! […]

I’ll admit, I was afraid of gardening… Primarily because I had heard (or formed) the following preconceptions: I won’t know what to plant, or what time of year to plant it. My plants will die and I’ll feel stupid. It’s too hot in Florida. The sun will cook anything I try to grow. My plants […]

We’ve been eating vegetarian (for the most part) for about 8 weeks now, and I’ve discovered one thing: It’s easy to be a vegetarian that eats like SHIT. Doritos, for example, are vegetarian. So are Boca burgers, on big awesome sandwich rolls with cheese and catsup and a side of chips. And a soda. Cheese […]
