Well, Earthangel!!!! Hello to you too! I've often wondered about you, so nice to "see" you again. Just came on for a quick peek, nothing much to report as I am not eating so well. I feel too cold to go without comfort food, and I haven't sat down with the Ehret books yet, blaah blaah blaah (excuses). I do need a little fast, I think. Even a day. Just to get off the speeding train

Am not doing well...this is tough. Not organized, not real motivated, and am not letting go of the regular fare. I need a short fast, even a couple days. That is how I usually "go back"...by cleaning the palate and getting real hungry for real food. Anyway, I'll keep at it in meantime. Maybe a week-end soon I can do this. I get off work at 3:30 (finish lunch a lot earlier, cou

Am enjoying green smoothies again. The pears are ripening and are they ever good. Bosc, I think. (yellowish brown) Mangoes still not soft enough. One may be good tomorrow. I had part of a pear from Von's, and I could hardly eat part of the part! Salad. And, lots of lettuce goes into the smoothie. I do like greens in the smoothies (not always)...sometimes, even a bit of celery. U

Tai Chi class this morning....delicious. Made a great salad today, enjoyed it very much. Used the spiralizer on golden beet, carrot, and zucchini which added much to the taste. And also made the salad very pretty. Am taking another day off tomorrow and may juice since I will have entire day even though it only takes just a few minutes really and is very easy to clean and does provide co

Good dinner---salad. Wanted to go to Tai Chi class, but didn't make it out of house in time. Only have very short turn around time after I get home from work. So, I practiced for an hour doing the form 2 times. Now very relaxed, smoothed out. It is like a self-administered acupuncture treatment.

Bumpy start, still half and half. Went out to lunch with friends and ate a cooked meal ... a vegan Thai place, not much besides cooked so I had steamed veggies and rice. Still eating other non raw fare; but also the good produce I purchased the other day. And what a difference in taste. There is no comparison between the organic food from People's co=op and produce (even 'organic') from regul

This is Elakti again, vol 3. I thought about changing my name and coming in here incognito, new persona....but, probably couldn't get away with that for long. Weight: 170. Recently lost 15 pounds, for various reasons. I went shopping today at People's co-op and got lots of real food. Am readying for another renewal. All is well-ish. Still doing Tai Chi, which is wonderful. I "

Good smoothies, salads, and some cooked food is also in the mix. Trying to get to a better place with my food. Tai chi class---private lesson!---was great, and am practicing. Am going to try harder today to be better with food. I need to also lessen my coffee consumption, it is bothering me and also interfering with ease of eating all raw.

Super salad at People's yesterday, and did purchase some greens, more oranges, a couple fat papayas, and other goodies. Smoothie this morning: strawberries, bananas, 1/2 apple, kiwis, liquid zinc. Cleaned refrigerator, may do some garden planting today, and am looking forward to the Tai Chi lesson this afternoon.

Hello again, it has been a while. My food has degenerated a bit and I need to pull myself up again. I finally am working, got a job! That was stressful, but with the job began a big slide in my eating....the temptation, and the new stress of having a job! I certainly feel the difference, especially when I wake up in the morning in a terrible mood that only 2 or 3 cups of coffee can get me o

Doing well, but have not been 100% raw, eating a little cooked tofu and vegetables at night. Made a delicious salad for lunch, using the saladacco for everything: carrots, pears, apples. Also added raisins...and kiwi slices. Very delicious! The pear worked well in saladacco, and added juice to the salad. All the flavors were "runny" and fresh. Had interview today and am hopin

So busy today...and Sundancer called! Nice to hear from her, but perhaps we can get together another day. I did eat lots of fruit and salad today, but also had a little tofu and vegetables, which was good, but am feeling rather full as I am not accustomed these days to that type of food. I had a mango this morning, but I am really "off" mangos. No desire for them, don't like....am

Had another delicious delicious watermelon. Also salad. I am kinda craving some cooked tofu and vegetables. Nice tai chi class. I feel so fortunate to be taking lessons from a master. He is so fantastic. To see him do the form...exquisite. Last week in the qikong class we all practiced feeling chi, the class was not as I expected...it was better. We just dealt with very simple small m

Happy Anniversary and springtime to you. We've had beautiful weather here, but sometimes foggy in morning. Here in San Diego we complain at the least provocation. I also had a canteloupe for breakfast, so good. And I love the colour. I'd like to paint something that colour, a table, or a closet, something.

Hi all, thanks all! Feeling better, less groggy. And am eating a delicious watermelon for dinner. Yes, fresh air sounds good, I'll eat some watermelon outside. Got some more greens...am going through greens like crazy. Watermelon and salads are the two big hits these days. I think I've lost another pound. No hurry. I feel good.

Starting my 59th year like a baby, just wanting to sleep. Am besieged with overwhelming sleepiness, since yesterday. Bed at 8:00, hardly had appetite after huge salad at lunchtime. Walking around like I'm on valium, it is hateful. Depressed. I don't know which came first, the depression or the achey sleepiness. I think it may be a detox thing/adjustment from the new eating style, I've been

Big ole smoothie this a.m. banana, kiwi, peach. Later, ate most of a small-medium watermelon, delicious. Later, peach and kiwi. Just now, a salad. Quiet day, my birthday so I am doing no job search, just hanging out and being quiet and ruminative and not feeling 'guilty' about it. Very inward. For balance, I washed my dog. Qigong class tonight. I may sidle over to youtube and ac

Just had another big plate of zucchini squetti and salad. ----and cancel the golden toilet! Later on I will probably have a small bowl of oatmeal. It is an ok replacement for what I used to eat at night. It will go when it goes. Now, off to youtube for tai chi and qiqong wanderings...am much too full to practice! Did practice a bit earlier. And there are some clips of Qigong 18 Figur

All is well, despite financial pit and no job. (well, I work 12 hours at min wage). Very tough, what? Still eating oatmeal, but also watermelon, bananas, pears, kiwi, apples, and salad. Loving watermelon, and salad. I keep buying the watermelons for 1.98 and they are gathering on my bedroom floor, looking like a watermelon patch. Very pretty.

That's great, Sundancer. I'll be so interested to see how you like it. Yang form? It is so beautiful, too. If you want to see my new teacher there are 3 short videos on his website, Tai Chi Wellness Center Master Henry. Also I've been watching videos galore on youtube.

Not a good job search today. Did not eat much...I hated the dressing, couldn't eat it. I did find some good dressing at Henry's. I'm not ready to give up certain dressings. It's okay. Just ate 2 bowls of salad. Romaine, green leaf, cucumber, zucchini, tomato, celery, pumpkin seeds. Deee-lish. Had earlier half watermelon. I bought 4 today. This one I ate had so many seeds! It was

Fruit this morning--some watermelon, apple, banana, plum eaten throughout morning, no real meal-time. Lunch a small salad with half avo. Watermelon when I got home. Haven't eaten too much today. Small watermelons are on sale at Von's for 1.98. Going back tomorrow for more. Canteloupe 50 cents each, will get some of those. Practicing gigong, looking forward to class on sat.
