Time To Put Me First Again!

It has been a long time since I wrote last. It has been a rough 8 months and my family has been through a lot! A lot of very hard trying times. Things are still not going smoothly but it is time to put my foot down so to speak and come back to putting my wellness first! I got lost in the "world" again. I stopped eating raw and doing yoga and slowed my meditation down. Some of it was do to multiple moves in a short period of time with 4 kids and no partner to help or support the process! So I will go easy on myself!

Now is the time for me and my communion with the divine. Getting back to the things that help me serve in God's love in a more pure channel! So back to Raw foods, Yoga, walking, meditating, and writing here!

I am not one for New Year's resolutions but by golly I am gonna do it...LOL
I will begin making changes this year and taking the time to put my wellness back in order!
Starting now I will allow the energies that support the way I want to live to flow in!
I can only take good care of my kids, family, and friends when I am in the "Flow"....

Loving you always!

Hi, I am posting to say hello ! I am still not doing well. I was able to witness and heal the sinus infection. I moved through it without medication and I am physically doing well on that front!!!=-)
Now I am having a hard time emotionally! I am sleeping a lot and very down. I know this is an illusion but I am having difficulty moving through this. I have faith that I will move through this, but it hasn't been fun in the process! The cravings are so strong and it is truly the Grace of God that I have not caved in!
I have made lots of wonderful Raw recipe's and have the picture's in my camera. I will share soon!
I invite the Holy Spirit to assist in this Miracle!

Not feeling well

Hello & Love to you all! I am sorry for the delay in posts!!!!! I am not feeling well. I think I am coming down with a sinus infection. I doing my best to stay heart centered and in my truth! This is why I have not posted, I am using what little energy I have to stay Raw, God centered, & raise my 4 Angels.

From my last post you can see that I was going through some cravings and physical detoxing. Right now I am going through Physical, emotional, and spiritual changes. Lots of buttons up to be released! Lots of tears, fears and illusions in my awareness! It is coming fast and due to my body[and head] aching it is hard to get to the computer and stay for more than a minute!

I will be back as soon as I feel better! LOVING YOU ALWAYS

Friday, March 20, 2009


For a few days now I have been having very strong cravings! I was starting to get annoyed that it wasn't easing up. I know I still have weight to lose & the detoxing is still taking place but these are strong! Dairy and Pasta combined is what my cravings[& ego] are telling me to eat! Now I know that they are both not serving and I want to continue on my all Raw Diet. But I still had that voice in my head telling me that just once won't hurt and that I could just go back to being Raw immediately after. I am sure you know how this is! The voice of ego trying sabotage! At the same time I was dealing with a lot of mucus coming out of my nose and sometimes throat[yuck]! I was feeling run down, tired and just wanted my old comfort foods!!!! Then today I put the 2 together! I realized information I already knew about and had placed away. I was detoxing the dairy and pasta and that the mucus/toxins are leaving my body! It is wonderful to put it in perspective and to intellectually have a reason to override the ego with.My ego can now no longer throw it's Tantrum and I feel more on track! The cravings are still there but I am able to sit in my truth much stronger!
How did/do you deal with cravings? Did they go away eventually?

Simply Raw DVD Review

I watched the movie Simply Raw the other night & I feel it is a great movie! When I was done watching it I felt inspired to stay on the path that I already am on[eating all raw] & following my dream of helping people eat & heal with Raw Foods! It was definitely an inspirational DVD!
I would say the most profound aspect of the DVD for me is the amazing, different & individual approaches each of the participants brought to this! Spiritually I felt very confirmed on a lot of the different aspects of the ego and how to overcome them. I saw all the participants as an aspect of myself and learned more about myself through watching it! I was also confirmed by the amazing success they had and how to take the the aspects of Kirt[very positive, strong and supportive] in to my own way of life. I, like him LOVE healing through Raw foods and would love to share the support, knowledge and love with others!

I would recommend this DVD to anyone wanting to feel inspired in their life!! All levels of Raw interest would find enjoyment and Love with this DVD! Here is a link to the trailer for the DVD!

Making a heart centered difference!

When I decided to go all Raw I did not realize how much it would change my life! I am changing on so many levels! I was not aware of the depth of these changes. I knew that my body, health & psychic abilities would change and become more in tune with the universe! I heard others speak of their changes and transformations. I noticed that their stories were inspiring & beautiful but I did not get the depth! Not until I lived through my own changes and continue to do so am I realizing in my core what others speak of!
I knew on so many levels why I did not want to eat meat anymore and to no longer put such a low vibration in my body! Now I am realizing even more how one person can make a significant difference! When I purchase organic raw foods I am telling the universe what to produce more of! The single purchase of something that is not serving [meat, drugs, alcohol, porn, & processed foods] affects what the divine energy of creation will be manifested in to. The world only makes what there is a calling for. Once again I am feeling how much the power is put in my hands and how I choose to live my life. My outer world is a direct reflection of my inner world. I can choose which direction to send the powerful manifesting energy of the divine! I, as one single person makes a difference! I choose to make a beautiful difference! I love Our Earth and I choose to serve God by loving her and treating her with kindness! She is me and there is no separation! LOVE! How do you make a beautiful difference? Please share with us! I also ask what is one more way you can make an even more beautiful difference today? What action can you take? I am going to make even more steps in to making my home a green home! That is my next step[s]. Please share with us!=-) <3 <3

Loving You Always

Chocolate Mousse and Hazelnut Vanilla Cookies

Anyone who knows me knows that I am the Chocolate Mousse Queen! I had a base recipe and have been making it differently for the past year! Sometimes I will add different Superfoods! I like to sprinkle Goji Berries on top!! Goji Berries, Cacao, Carob ....... OH MY!!!!
Here is the recipe I make most often for my Chocolate Mousse!
4 Medium Avocado's
1/2 cup soaked dates[save date water to use for recipe]
1/3 cup Cacao powder[add more or less to your taste] this amount adds a milk chocolate taste
1/4 cup carob powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract[only if you like=-)]
1/3 cup of date water or add for the consistency you like!!
sprinkle cinnamon on top optional but helps with digestion of these ingredients!
I dip all kinds of Berries in it as well as oranges, apples, bananas, & more
Put it all in the food processor and then enjoy!
I went Heathy's last post on her incredible blog and I saw that she used a recipe from Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney to make the wonderful cookies on her post! I have the book, jumped up, and made the cookies! You see the result[what's left of it=-)]! The dough was so good!! It almost didn't make it to the dehydrator. My kids and I could not stop "sampling it"!
I had to change it because I was out of almond extract! Thanks for the inspiration Heathy!!!
13/4 cups dried Coconut
3/4 cup of almond flour
3/4cup cashew flour
3/4cup grade B pure maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil
11/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon hazelnut extract
pinch sea salt[I forgot to put this in]
I shaped them and put them in the dehydrator 12 hours
They were so good right out of the D. Slightly firm on top, warm and soft in the middle! I will be making these again.
Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney is another one of my books that I use often=-)

"Meatballs" in Marinara Sauce

These came out really well. I was pleasantly surprised! I got both recipe's from Jennifer Cornbleet's Book Raw Food Made Easy. I LOVE this book!!! I have lots of Raw recipe books and this is the one that I seem to use the most. The recipe's are very easy and they taste great! I have found that I have changed many. Out of all my books I use this one daily or my own recipe that was made out of a recipe of hers. I definitely think every beginner would benefit having this book in their collection to start with.
I had a friend try the recipe last night and he liked it. He thought the taste was great but the texture was not to his preference. He would eat them again though=-)
I enjoyed them and I will be making them again! This time the whole recipe instead of the, I am just trying this half recipe.=-)
Marinara Sauce
ripe tomato
sun dried tomatoes
olive oil
I used an Italian herb mix
fresh garlic
cayenne pepper
Meat balls
I used walnuts & pecans
lemon juice
olive oil
garlic powder
fresh parsley
minced onion

First Green Smoothie Workshop

I have heard that when you are fulfilling your dharma[life's purpose] the universe will line everything up and like magic it will come to you. That is what is happening here in CT..=-) I was just contacted to do my first Green Smoothie workshop/demonstration. I am very excited. I am "magically" meeting the right people at the right time! People are open to taking charge of their lives and are coming to me. I am at home loving Raw Foods, reading & learning all that I can, and living with an open heart. It has been almost effortless to start this. The universe is weaving together a beautiful story that I am blessed to be a part of! 2 hours before the call came I was all of a sudden "given" a name for my Raw Food business. There was a paper and pen right next to me on the couch and I started scribbling all kinds of ideas. I will share another time the name. I am not 100% sure what I am going to pick yet. So before I make any announcement I want to be sure.=-) I can't help but see the synchro-destiny in the timing of my name and the call for the workshop. Also, when then call came in, I was creating a new recipe to make "rice paper" for Thai spring rolls. As you can tell.... I am VERY excited and Thank you for taking the time to read the musings of my heart.
Thank you universe for the abundance you have brought and are continuing to bring in to my life! I am a vehicle for your LOVE !! How may I serve?

Standing In The Fire. FOR MYSELF!!!!

I just came out from a couple of days of self doubt. The whole time I saw what aspect it was and what was causing it. I made the choice to stand up for my life and stand in the fire for myself!!! Give Myself the encouragement I often give others and my kids. It was time for me to receive the same love I give to others. I have made the choice to start a Raw Food business and the universe had delivered the help SO FAST AND WONDERFULLY. Thank you God! I will be honest though. It pushed self worth buttons. My nervous system was on edge. I could feel the need for old patterning to be looked at then let go of. I am sure as no surprise to you all, I also started craving cooked foods. My ego tried to talk me into eating continuously! I heard all the voices trying to tell me that I can not succeed and that Raw Foods is to radical and that everything should be in moderation. All those old voices[the ego] that had me trapped in the world of food addiction and that was comforted with unserving foods. I am relieved to say that I did not cave this time around! I know for me that an all Raw diet is best. I could not have done with out faith[it was tested though]!!! It is now over 3 months! I could hear the voice of addiction speaking to me and I could also see the old me that used to listen to those voices. Boy oh Boy...... no wonder why my nervous system was on edge....

Today I feel more confidant, strong, and loving. Able to be more loving and compassionate for others and myself. Today I am going to make more steps towards my dreams and goals.=-) Right Now I am in a deep state of Gratitude for all that I have. I can not do any of this with out God & meditation being my constant companion! THANK YOU!!

Going Professional!!

I have been feeling guided to start teaching workshops on Raw Foods & the wonderful Green Smoothie. I was having doubts. Feeling like I haven't been doing it long enough, I'm not educated enough and all that kind of mind babble. Then the people seem to be "coming to me". Everywhere I go I am having people ask me questions, want a class, and full of great info for me. People all around me are making amazing food changes and adding more Raw in their life. All of them are asking me questions, asking for guidance with it, or just simply doing what I am doing. My kids, friends, Waiter's at cooked food restaurants, x-husband, family and neighbors. It is amazing the opportunities that have been coming my way in the last 3 weeks. Truly Synchro-destiny at work!!
I am taking it all as a sign that I am on the right path. Well........ now I am saying to you and the universe. I AM DIVING IN! I LOVE RAW FOODS!!!! GOD HOW CAN I SERVE.? I AM A VEHICLE OF YOUR LOVE! IN YOU I TRUST!!!!

My Shifting Awareness on Medicine

To medicate or not to medicate. That is what has been on my mind the last 24 hours. Being in the Alternative Healing Field for over 6 years now this has been a common subject in my thoughts.

Raw foods has brought me to a new level of awareness on this. If my body is telling me something is wrong then it is most important to listen to what it is saying first and foremost. When it comes to my body I can feel what it is telling me and then use my inner voice as to what action to take. I realized how much I was and society is taught to take medicine first, then feel better and then go about your life. Without ever really looking at the route cause of what is going on. We are not taught to trust our bodies wisdom and that we all hold the knowledge within ourselves. I was taught to give that power away & to trust the people in the white coats. The doctors and lab tech.'s that are testing these medicine's out on animals. So we are putting something in our bodies that is artificially created and then cruelly tested on a another being. To top it off they didn't test it on humans[we can sue] because they were not sure if it was safe. This all seems absurd to me now. Please don't get me wrong, I am soooooooooooooo grateful to these people, animals, and medicine's. They all have their place in the world and I am just bumping along trying to find my place in the world with all that is available. Letting go of old ways that do not feel serving for me & the kids anymore.
My whole life I never heard anyone address the route cause of the symptom. Never had I have someone say to me, look at what you are eating and educate me. It always came with judgment and a lack of sharing the knowledge with me[if they had it]. Look at the toxins and that is what your body is trying to say. I have been taught to work with energy and have been doing that for a long time but never down to the food. What I am putting in my body was hardly ever addressed. Especially growing up. Energy before form, the power of thoughts and all of this is so important and VERY Accurate. But our bodies react to what we eat and drink, strongly! So why don't we start there? Do the energy work and if absolutely necessary a doctor and/or medicine. My life is now about living a life that is naturally about prevention. The power lies within me not outside of me.

With my kids I am trying to get to a place of comfort. I am doing my best but the old conditioning is harder to let go[for me] when it comes to my kids. I was taught that if they have a fever give them Motrin or Tylenol, let them run around and allow them to run down their bodies even more. My instinct is to let the fever run it's course with no medicine. But then I get scared of harming my Angels. I have come to a place of slowly seeing what happens. Now I only give them medicine for fevers when it gets VERY high and if it is high right before bed. Simply because I can not watch them if I am sleeping. My ego fights with my inner voice and I find it hard to decipher what is"best" for them. I feel some fear because it is not my body and I can't always tell what is going on within them. I do not take medicine. I let whatever is going on to run it's course. But I am deeply in tune with my body and if I was to truly get scared I would get my butt to a doctor. But how do I know what to do with the kids? So the voice of the ego and social conditioning is what is being released at this time. I am seeking a place of knowledge, intuition and wisdom.

As with myself, I know that the kids bodies are telling us something as well. But they were brought up on dairy and cooked foods. I have gone Organic[when available] with the dairy and I am bringing in more and more Raw Foods. This is still a process and the older kids 12 & 7 are not going as easily as the 3 and 5 year old. I am grateful for the medicine for helping me with my kids but I would like to get to a place where we are in charge of our health and will no longer have to have this as a concern. I would also like to say that it is not often that my kids need to have any medicine at all but this is what is coming up.

Does anyone know any good books on this subject? I am seeking a place within that has wisdom, intuition and also having the knowledge to back it up.=-)

Love Always

Random Musings

I started an Herbal Cleanse last week and I was doing great. Since I was already eating Raw Vegan foods I didn't go through the deep symptoms that they warned you about=-) It was another confirmation for me. How much healthier my body is eating 99% Raw. But this week I am going through something but I am not sure if I caught something from the kids or if it is part of the detox/cleanse. So this cleanse will last another 5 weeks. I can't wait to move through this part and feel better on the other side. I think it might be a slight cold. My throat feels irritated and almost sore. Either way I am looking forward to feeling better!=-)
It is getting warmer here. Which is wonderful! It has been a clod winter. I mostly was in the house with 3 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts. It drove me nutty but staying committed to Raw was more important, and I am glad I made it through.
I am also glad that I do 99% Raw. I eat very little nutritional yeast, Grade B maple syrup, and rice paper for spring rolls. But otherwise I am all Raw. I am loving it!!!!

Loving you always

Seeing for myself

Hello, and Happy Saturday to you all. Since I have gone Raw my "eyes" have been opened to so much around me. It is like a cloud is lifted off of you. For me it is slowly & steady. As the cloud lifts I am seeing so much more. This is amazing and can be a bit in your face. The energy feels clear enough that I can see situations for what they are. As my out molded ways are being presented, I can feel a little confused. Having moments of what do I do now. Being Raw has put me in a perpetual state of letting go. Internally mostly but externally as well[cooked food]. I am getting the vision of a bubbling fountain in the core of me that just gently keeps going. I am being "blended" up and releasing so much. Going Raw for me is a whole life detox. It has been wonderful.
Right now I am seeing how I was brought up in a brain washed system. Schools, parents, families, nutrition systems, peer groups, fashion, and Dr.'s. I am sure the list can go on. I can see the madness of it all. Where as before I was aware of it but the patterns were not so visible to me. I do feel that I was blessed as a child to be psychic, sensitive and aware. Some how through the troubles of childhood I never lost it. So at a young age I am able to think for myself and break free from the thoughts of others that no longer serve my way of life. I FULLY recognize that most are doing it with love and believe that they are doing what is best.=-) I am grateful for the love and the knowledge that it has all brought. It has all gotten me to where I am today! Raw Foods has put me MUCH MORE in touch with my inner voice that guides me through my life. I always had this voice but often fought it, ignored it or simply didn't recognize it. Now I can hear my inner voice and act upon it with less "stuff" in the middle.
I am grateful for this inner voice because it is what brought me to Raw Foods. Letting me know 2 years ago that it was the path for me and slowly but surly getting me here.
Loving You Always

Lifting Another Veil

Wow...... I just went through a big part of my emotional detox! A very welcomed event but a process none the less.
One of the benefits and enlightening things I have been going through is seeing relationships so much clearer. Raw has taken a veil off and I can see patterns so much easier. It actually almost feels like I don't have a choice. I can see my part and also the others. I can see the patterns that were holding me emotionally in these relationships the way I was. So now I am learning how to stay in certain relationships with these new awareness's. Wondering if it is time to let go, need to change my perception , or maybe both.
I am moving in the direction of unconditional love for all beings. But aren't some relationships unhealthy and meant to leave? So I am learning how to be in the flow of unconditional love, non-judgment, and not being a doormat.
One step I have grown in a healthier direction with this is to lovingly voice my truth. If someone is seemingly mistreating me then I can speak up. I do not have to sit silently and then go and meditate on it. Communication is so important! Not be in a place of blame but being in a place of truth and love.
Doing my own emotional work around the situation is the most vital step for my growth as well. My outer environment is a direct reflection of my inner environment. So all is my responsibility. All situations in my life is created by some form of belief, pattern, or emotion I am carrying within me. The more I embody God's pure Love then the more I will be in loving relationships and situations. Things will still happen but my relationship to what is happening will be from a completely different place.

I am so happy for the clarity that being Raw has given to me in my life. I am blessed!

Feeling Raw Emotions

Today is day 66 being 99% Raw. I have lost 22lbs. to date.=-) I am happy and I know that my body is healing, and that I am taking good care of my mind , body, and spirit. Since I have gone Raw, my dreams have increased & there's more clarity around them . Yesterday I woke from a dream that left me feeling emotional. So I was the witness of "me" being funky yesterday. Then last night I broke down crying. I cried for at least 2 hours straight. I was healing so many things that I never allowed myself to feel. I even went into the thoughts and emotions my Mom felt while I was in her. I never realized how much food and weight was my safety net in the world. I was aware, but not in depth. I allowed myself to cry and witnessed it. Knowing that it is just a movie on the movie screen called human life. I surrounded myself with the most beautiful unconditional love and allowed myself to go through what I was experiencing.
As I lose the weight the emotions can be so "in my face". Which is new for me, a once cooked food emotional eater. I know that it is wonderful that this healing is taking place, freeing myself from so much inner turmoil. While I was eating the cooked food I wasn't even aware of all these emotions and patterns. I was making myself comfortably numb. It is good that I am finally looking at all of this instead of hiding behind food and old patterns. I can let go and just be.

Love always

Sweetie Potato Goodness

All I can say is Wow to the cheesy Sweet Potato Chips. I loved them so much that Samantha[3] and I ate them ALL today! Oops=-) Mental note to make more next time and to exhibit some self control. hahaha

Here is Alissa Cohen's recipe:
2 sweet potatoes
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup Bragg Liquid Amino's
1/2- 1 cup of nutritional yeast

1. peel, then slice Sweet Potatoes in a spiral slicer or mandolin
2. Combine the water and B.L.A. in a large bowl
3. Marinate the S. Potatoes in the mixture for at least 5 minutes. [I did 15 min and will do a little longer next time]
4. Drain the chips and then lay them flat an the dehydrator screen.

5. Dust the chips with the yeast. Alissa likes to coat them heavily for a real cheese flavor[I did to]

6. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 8 to 10 hours or until crispy

Honestly...... I can't believe how good these are!

Love Always

This morning I found myself very mucusy! I was talking and would suddenly be congested in my throat and need to blow my nose[beautiful]. Thick yellow mucus was coming out! A lot of it and in periods through out the morning. It was weird but I was soooooooooooooooooo and am so happy that it was happening! It is gone never to return. Because I am choosing a Raw Vegan lifestyle once I have toxins leave my body they are not coming back! I will still have more detoxing to do but only because of the choices I made in the past. My body is happy and on the way to be being mucus free, Yahoooo=-) I am presently doing the mucus free dance in my chair...!!!

I also tried a couple of new recipe's this morning. I tried Raw Cinnamon Rolls. Very easy to make and they are good! Very sweet but good! Samantha[3] LOVED them and Ethan[5] did as well.

My reason for choosing Raw Foods

So many people ask me why I have chosen the Raw Food lifestyle. It is because I feel a closer & a more pure connection to Creator! Therefore making the rest of my life balanced and fulfilled.

I am one of those who have seen the movie The Secret, Louis Hay's work, and know the Abraham teachings. Well today I made an important link to thoughts, emotions, physical wellness, and "success". It all linked up inside me on how to work with my emotions. Which can be strong during the detox period for someone who used to use food to hide within.
When I have a negative emotion it comes directly from a negative thought. Which is just the ego and realizing this helped me to continue with the inner work I already do. I strongly believe in not taking the ego seriously. So when Jesus says choose again, all I have to do is change my thoughts and then allow the positive energy & emotions that come with those thoughts flow through. To be healthy and joy filled all I have to do is choose it! Right now! Just choose it. It is that simple.
A MAJOR important step in being able to let go of negative energy, thoughts, & emotions is to support the body with soul nourishing nutrition. My body is just another form of energy. So what I put in & on my body directly affects my state of wellbeing. There is not one thing that does not carry an energy. All though everything in truth holds the peace of God and is pure. All of creation holds this truth. But when something is processed and taken from it's original source and has the original source energy cooked, squeezed, chemicalized, processed, polished and anything else that can fit in there it starts to densen it's physical energy. This holds true for furniture, people, animals, food, plants, & cloths. An example is a wooden chair. It was connected to source when it was alive as a tree and flowing with nutrients, power, & lifeforce. Then it gets cut from it's roots, stripped of it's bark, cut down, most often chemicalized, cut down some more, then has metal banged into it, then stained and polished[with chemicals]. While the chair is not of a low vibration sitting there looking pretty, and strong enough to hold a human. It is not as vibrant, and lifeforce filled as it was when it was still a tree.
We can still connect to the pure truth of the tree through the chair, but it takes more work. Eating raw foods makes it easier and a clearer channel to release negative emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. I am not clouded by chemicals, pollutants, and dense food. Raw & living foods support my spiritual reality by making a clearer physical reality to support me. I want to live as pure love and live as the peace of God.
I know that I can still eat whatever I want, lather my body in chemical lotions, soaps & products & still reach this place. I am simply choosing the path in the forest that doesn't have poison ivy and an easier walk through. I have a choice and I am making it in every moment. To live healthy, happy and holy.
This is what Raw & living foods is for me. A clearer connection to Source and through that I can live in abundance.

Love Always

Chia Seeds

This past Sunday I had a friend come over and she started to tell me about a Super food called Chia Seeds. They sounded so healthy and she definitely had my interest peeked. I knew I would look them up later and read more about them. Then just "by chance" she happened to have a bag[sandwich bag] in her purse. She was so sweet and gave me the bag. She also told me how to prepare them. When Sherry handed me the bag my body INSTANTLY reacted. I felt a sweeping energy come over my body and I could feel how my body was telling me that this is something it would require for better health. They have a high vibration and my body was giving me the wisdom to know about this beautiful little seed without words or an intellectual knowing. I also learned to tell the difference between the seeds wonderful vibration and the vibration my body was telling me about requiring it. Just because the seeds have a high vibration and are healthy does not mean that my body required it's nutrition at this time. I loved learning this difference. I also loved knowing that these seeds came to me effortlessly and my body is doing well with them. How effortlessly they came to me is also a signpost of my nutritional "need" for them. Trust in our loving universe and you will be provided for.=-) Watch how the miracles of synchro-destiny manifest in your life.
Here is some info on Chia Seeds form Andrew Weil, Md
Here is a couple of links to purchase them. Also check your local health Food store. Find out if they have been processed in any way before you purchase from the Health Food Store. That is why I sometimes prefer to buy from Raw web-sites. They provide lots of info before you purchase.
Thank you Sherry for your giving heart!

What are Chia Seeds?

Answer (Published 5/15/2006)
Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows abundantly in southern Mexico. You may have seen chia sprouts growing on the novelty planters called Chia Pets, but historically, the seeds have been the most important part of the plant. In pre-Columbian times they were a main component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and were the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors. I've read that one tablespoon was believed to sustain an individual for 24 hours. The Aztecs also used chia medicinally to stimulate saliva flow and to relieve joint pain and sore skin.
Chia is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seeds. And it has another advantage over flax: chia is so rich in antioxidants that the seeds don't deteriorate and can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid. And, unlike flax, they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body. Chia seeds also provide fiber (25 grams give you 6.9 grams of fiber) as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.
Another advantage: when added to water and allowed to sit for 30 minutes, chia forms a gel. Researchers suggest that this reaction also takes place in the stomach, slowing the process by which digestive enzymes break down carbohydrates and convert them into sugar.
Chia has a nutlike flavor. You can mix seeds in water and add lime or lemon juice and sugar to make a drink known in Mexico and Central America as "chia fresca." As with ground flax seeds, you can sprinkle ground or whole chia seeds on cereal, in yogurt or salads, eat them as a snack, or grind them and mix them with flour when making muffins or other baked goods. I find them tasty and an interesting addition to my diet.
Chia is undergoing something of a renaissance after centuries of neglect. It was a major crop in central Mexico between 1500 and 900 B.C. and was still cultivated well into the 16th century, AD, but after the Spanish conquest, authorities banned it because of its close association with Aztec religion (Indians used the seeds as offerings in rituals). Until recently, chia was produced by only a few small growers, but commercial production has resumed in Latin America, and you can now buy the seeds online and in health food stores.
Because of its nutritional value and stability, chia is already being added to a range of foods. Research has shown that adding it to chicken feed makes for eggs rich in omega-3s. Feeding chia to chickens enriches their meat with omega-3s; fed to cattle chia enriches milk with omega-3s. Chia can also be added to commercially prepared infant formulas, baby foods, baked goods, nutrition bars, yogurt, and other foods. Another bonus: insects don't like the chia plant so it is easier to find organically grown varieties. I expect we'll soon be hearing much more about chia and its health benefits.

I Am

My body has had a cold now for the last 4 days. Through eating 100% Raw Foods I have been learning to listen to my bodies wisdom. It is much like a computer that has an entire system that has an intelligence. I sat today and asked my body, why are you sick? What are you trying to tell me. I would like to share the wisdom it shared. That every fraction of a second we are creating new cells and you have rapidly increased the life force of the cells that you are creating by putting life filled foods into your body. So in turn the old cells that are falling away are giving the body the illusion of not feeling well. The old cells are of a lower vibration and are much more obvious now because you now know the contrast.

Then I started to think about this while still staying connected to the wisdom that my body is giving. Although my body has been sick my spirit is feeling stronger and I am able to still do Yoga with strength. Now that I have been eating this way now for a while, the stronger life force cells are more prominent than before and giving my body less time for actually feeling run down. So I am still releasing the old cells while rapidly producing healthy vibrant new cells. So the choice that I am making when I do the yoga ,& simply living is to pay attention to the I Am. Instead of the I am sick. While still continuing to support the body with living foods. Living foods creates living bodies. Which for me creates a stronger, clearer, connection to the I Am. The oneness is integrating; not just into my awareness spiritually but also into this vehicle[my body] because it is not separate from this "spiritual oneness". There is no distinction. It is a beautiful harmonic dance with God as the lead partner. =-). I am in love & how may I serve......

Yoga & Strength

Today is Day 47 and as of this morning I have lost 17lbs. in these 47 days. That is a nice perk to going Raw. I am loving how strong and flexible I feel since I have become 100% raw again. I did Hatha Yoga today and I was able to do & stay in the poses with strength and balance with much more ease. I have been doing Yoga again regularly now for about 2 weeks. When I first went raw[47 days ago] my body felt really weak and emotionally was going through a lot. Detoxing is not always fun=-) But powerful spiritually and physically. So I went from doing Yoga once or twice a day to once a week. I just was not feeling physically strong enough and lacked the ambition. I felt a little guilty but my body just did not feel up to it. Looking back on it I AM SO HAPPY I listened to my bodies wisdom and didn't push myself. My body was already going through a lot and healing itself. Releasing a lot of toxins. If I had pushed myself I could have worn my body down instead of allowing it to regenerate itself.
I have been doing Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga now for about 10 months now. Before I went 100% Raw this time around I was having a harder time in the poses and my balance was starting to get shaky. I was doing an AM & PM session as part of my sadhana. Now I am back to doing it at least once daily and working way back to twice daily. Now that I have allowed my body to come into it's own strength again I am doing better than ever. The strength, flexibility, and balance are much more improved. I can also move in and out of each pose with more Grace.
Our bodies are always letting us know what it requires. This is becoming an amazing journey of learning my bodies wisdom. Which is becoming my strongest tool in the world to let me know what is going on around me and my part in it. I love to drink a green smoothie after a nice Yoga session. I can feel it feeding my body all it needs. Today I put Kale, dandelion greens, spinach, Green powder mix, lemon juice, apple , papaya, Kelp, Bee pollen and coconut oil. Yum and very nourishing.

Musings on being 100% Raw Vs. partial Raw

Yesterday and today have been interesting! I am very happy about all the Raw foods the kids have been eating. Ethan[5] is asking for carrots skin and all. He Loves them. Isabella[7] announced today that she is now a Rawfoodist=-} Emerald[12] thinks we are all crazy[hehehe]. Then after 10 minutes of Isabella being happy she started to realize all the cooked foods that she loves that she will miss. Then I told her she could do an 80% way and that soothed her mind. But then I started to think about it.......... She reacted the way so many of us do when we think about going to a Raw food way of life 100%. I know I had those same thoughts 2 years ago. That's why it took me a year and 1/2 to go 100% from when I first learned of Raw foods. Going 100% is the best choice for me at this time. Physically, emotionally and spiritually. So what is important is that we listen to our bodies wisdom, and not the voice of the ego. Our body knows what it wants to eat if we go quiet inside and "listen". So for some it might not be 100% and an 80% way would be best & eating cooked whole grains in their diet during the winter could be best. What is best is to listen to your own intuitive wisdom and do what our most psychic tool, OUR BODY, is telling us. If we get stuck in what books and experts tell us is best then we are still giving our power to another source. It is important to take the wisdom of these wonderful experts and incorporate them into our way of life. But ultimately us and our bodies are the true wisdom to listen to.

This is how I have grown from being 100% Raw. Now that I can so clearly see what my body is telling me to eat and what the "little me" is telling me to eat. I can make a more conscious choice of when and what I eat. Sometimes I fall into the voice of the ego, little me, and will have something Raw that my body was not telling me, but this is how I am learning how decipher the different voices. The voices telling me to eat cooked foods I just meditate on and release or breath through it,or have something Raw. Those voices are not telling me to eat soul supportive and body nourishing foods. This time around I have not caved into those. I see them for what they are. It is my body releasing the toxins of these cooked foods and it is just my body telling me this. Many voices and learning which one is my ultimate truth. This is a very enlightening journey for me. Being 100% Raw is my path to getting more clarity on what voices are which. I'm Loving It!

Love always

Hello & welcome

I am Happy Today to be starting a Raw Food Blog. Here we can share and talk about Raw foods and all the life changes that happen around eating Raw Foods. All things shift and change, relationships, your body, emotions, your connection to Source & your interests. Mostly what changes is how you are connected to all of these aspects of your life. Seeing them clearer and feeling more peace with what is.

I am on Day 44 100% Raw. I am finding a decreased need for food. My body is full easily and nurished much sooner. Which leaves me to deal with the emotions and aspects of myself that want's to overeat or make food choices[raw] that my body is not telling me it needs. So my awareness is brought to all of this for healing and moving forward in my journey. I am learning to listen to my body's wisdom day to day. This does leave you emotional at times. Because when you are no longer stuffing the "truth" away with food it is up in your face to be released. This is such an enlightening journey and I am happy that I have started it.
