I'm a mom too, "mommy" ;~) and have come to recognize that quitting cooked food is quitting ahorrible addiction---many highs and lows come in tow. Try not to get rocked in the tidal wave! Or rather, just let go and go through it, don't fight it, and "keep your eye on the prize", and hooray, congratulations, woopeeee ya know? I'm feeling a little spacey, after my body di

My baby will be a year old soony soon... He mostly breastfeeds though eats a lot too...lots of fruits, some veggies, raw soups, smoothies, seed-nut mylk, ... he tastes lots of stuff outside too, and I have questions about certain things...I've heard not to give a baby honey, would that make bee pollen out? and what about things like wheat germ, bluegreen algae, greens powders, wheatgrass juice,

Even though I don't do it everyday, I can't imagine my life without it, I feel so blessed to have learned and practiced as much as I have. It's like dancing, it is total expansion if practiced consciously (not like a workout routine, though it has benefits even then). It is so grounding and uplifting and healing. Ahhhhhhh...... Breathing is key. If I try to bypass tuning in to my breath and

oh yeah, and if warming the soup, helps to have it on the stove on pretty low heat as you add the ingredients so it warms while you do all the preparation, just remember to keep stirring and keep it on low enough heat that it doesn't cook on the bottom. cold soups are great too, avocado is one of my favourite creamy-makers....

I like to make soups often, especially now that it is getting cold, and when I've got lots of good crunchy veggies I don't feel like crunching (or I would rather slurp, hee hee) Here're some things I often do: use something other than water for the liquid (like homemade nut/seed milk, or veggie juice (even just plain celery juice) use things to thicken the liquid and make it creamy, like

Question: is it good to skin all nuts or just almonds really? And that sounds great! I've used coconut water for soaking nuts, too, for recipes, and in raw soups... Drinking the coconut soak water for cashews was divine! :~)

Great discovery by-product of making my own nut and seed milks... soak nuts and/or seeds overnight to blend into milk in the morning strain the milk as you pour it, keep the stuff you strain out in the fridge to mix with some of the milk and other yummy ingredients to warm into some nice "oatmeal"!!!! right now I'm eating: milk and "oatmeal" made from pumpkin s

I everyone, I'd just like to put up a little message about my recent experience...I went for a month totally raw and my joy and health and energy and bodyshape/feeling were amazing. Then I felt sad one day and have been eating some cooked everyday for more than a week since, and I feel awful inside and out. Cooked food is so addictive and poisonous. My goal is to abstain today, to make the mir

Without having read everything here, I'd just like to say that the better you take care of yourself, the better you'll feel about your appearance, and the better you will appear. In growing healthier and healthier, you will grow more and more radiant. Part and parcel of that is a greater understanding and acceptance and sense of yourself. Full speed ahead!!!! best wishes, adrienne

Hey Mama, ;~) thanks for writing, blessings to you also. It would be groovy if we did indeed live next door. Do you live in a warm place? We just got back from the farmer's market that happens year round (indoors in an old brewery, great market), every Saturday.

I just got a really foggy head after eating some steamed squash (I've had some cooked stuff the last few days after a month raw just cuz under pressure, I don't feel good). Funny, steamed squash getting me stoned. I feel like I can't do anything (though it's clearing up now) Adrienne

In Hawaii, where there was danger of the nasty "rat lung worm" passed by slugs onto produce, we washed everything with diluted food-grade hydrogen pyroxide. Now I'm not one to ever wash my food, but who knows, maybe I should start??? hmmm

thank you, sweetness... I'm feeling a lot better today, after spending lots of time just hanging out outside with my baby on the earth without shoes on, and after reading some of just-the-right-book-for-me-right-now, Meditation In Action by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Thanks~~ yeah, babyfacelove is a great resource (for giving to others and getting out of myself) when I remember to see it that way. Sometimes I forget that my favourite person in the world is right in my face. At least our relationship is mostly presence and not in my head!! :~) love and light Adrienne Michelle

Thanks, that's a good reminder not to wait for things to be the way I want them to to be happy. I am very into the positivity thing and consider myself very aware of how vibes manifest reality, so then I have a hard time giving someone a call to talk about stuff cuz I don't have any really close friends in the present time and I don't want to put a lot of energy into focusing on how sucky this

Oh yeah, and the thanks to Mama Cass was because yeah, even now, people urge me to eat non-vegan stuff at least some of the time, even though no one knows the answers, they just feel the need to urge something, as our children are so dear and important.

Thanks Mama Cass~~I had gone off raw just before getting pregnant and worked my way back to mostly raw during pregnancy as I felt much better that way (though i never had morning sickness and I felt my few years of mostly raw leading up to pregnancy were even preperative...)

new single mama and 10-month-old looking to move back to the islands...lived on the Big Island in Kapoho for awhile, am also interested in Maui, and all. I'd like a place to at least land when we get there. I might find a place where I lived before, but I'd like to find other raw foodists around, too... love, Adrienne
