NEW YEAR A NEW START

I just love when the new year comes around. It really brings me a feeling of new beginnings. I find it liberating. Here I am.....been bummed out about being off my raw path. On one hand I feel like it is no big deal as long as I still have to goal, and I keep coming back to it. On the other had I bum myself out because I know that if I just stuck to it I would be over all the bumps and hurdles by now. I really don't get many cravings now, but once in a while I do get them. Actually, most of the time when I get them, then give in to them.... afterwards I find that whatever the craving is (that I just eat) wasn't even satisfying. The thought and the expectation the proceed the indulgence, are better then the SAD food actually taste. I guess my body is changing, but my mind it lagging behind. To me, the New Year brings with it a kind of "Do Over". A fresh start!


Lately I have been eating mostly vegan, about 30% raw and 70% cooked. I have really been sucking in the raw department. I think I have been giving into the cold weather. For me, raw is so much easier in the summer.

My husband has been trying to go vegan as well. He is not quiet ready for 100% raw. However, I believe the more vegan he goes, and the more of my raw food he eats the more his body will change on it's own and crave more raw. This is also what I am hoping for myself, however, I will also be focusing on more raw food. I just really want to make it 100%. I need it for my health. I need healing.

I really believe in the raw lifestyle. That is the other thing that nags at me. You would think that if you really believe in something, that it would be easier to do. It seems that it would be a no brainer!
Thank you Lord for a New Year!!! New beginnings, and a fresh start!


I will be getting a new Juicer and a Excalibur Dehydrator this year. I think, one this month and the other next month. I am not sure what juicer is best. A couple are really similar. I would really love any of your suggestions. Please write me with your comments and opinions. Once I get my new juicer, I am also thinking about trying a Juice Feast. If you have ever done one. I would love to hear your story's and experiences. I know this will really help jump start me and get body in the right direction. I would also love to hear your favorite green juice recipes. I would love to get more green juice in me to help with candida. I notice psoriasis issues when I have to much sugar. I tend to drink green smoothies over juice. I just can't find a green juice I like.
