It has been a while since my last post...busy with life: started teaching this spring semester so there was a lot of prepping for two new classes which is what took away from my posts. Squeezing in a little update during my lunch break. This new lifestyle is quite challenging to say the least. As my body was going through detoxing, I had some days where I just didn't feel great or with energy. My husband helped me through this phase because I didn't want to continue. One of the great things of choosing to make changes is allowing yourself some gra
Well, it is the first week of the new year! What have you implemented as your new resolve? My choice was to try eating a raw vegan diet. No, it is not eating uncooked meat.

If you are trying to lose weight then lowering your calorie intake is what counts. In the fight to lower calorie intake we as a society tend to go through phases…the carbs are bad phase…the eat-low-fat-phase and of course with that there is the inevitable push to separate you from your money by introducing low-fat foods. Its great marketing and it attempts to lure you in to buying Brand A vs. Brand B. But eating low-fat products may not be as beneficial as you might think if your goal is weight loss.
