Yes, I am back! After Ejuva and now to RAW. 17 y
Ejuva and Raw Food
Well, I am back. I am back to being raw, if you want to look at it, technically 95-100% because I do not always use raw seasonings...;)
I did the Ejuva Cleanse last month, I have to say that it was one of the best cleanses I have ever done. I would not say that weightloss was the huge thing, it was more just getting all the mucus and cooked food residue out of my body.
I love the Master Cleanse, but I suck at transitioning out and maintaining, ergo weight comes back and off...blah, blah! But Accountability keeps me honest and I did the EJUVA cleanse with a group at Cousin’s IV (se ... read more
Recommitted - Juicing.... 17 y
Gotta go for it...
Ok. I have got to stop bingeing. I think it is a combination of the full moon ( I am a moon child) and PMS. I can’t take it!!!! I mean there are worse things I could eat...but I am going to be in a bathing suit in 3 weeks. yes, for vanity, but yes for health. In the last month since I lost those extra pounds, I was clamer and more peaceful (for me) and I remember to take a deep breath...I think that added to helping my calmness. I really did feel lighter and happier. So, I need to think of how I feel right now...sad and guilty. Not cool...so as of this moment at 9:34 a.m. No more ... read more
It's back on!!!! 17 y
Fell off the wagon a lil' bit
I know I have been MIA for almost two weeks. I had two bookings and I have not been at a computer for a long time! I think my weightloss contributed to my bookings! Anyway, spent a couple of days on set and they have food all the freakin’ time! I stayed pretty much raw except for some steamed broccoli and dry roasted macadamias. I tried to start the Master Cleanse again yesterday, but I made it until I got home and I downed two trays of my essene bread! Yes, yes I binged! And then I broke into the stash of girlscout cookies I ordered from a friend and I was saving it for my son! Ok ... read more
On the go and new restaurant 17 y
On the go, new raw food restaurant in town
I have been crazy busy this week with auditions and bookings! I am sooo happy I got my stuff together and it has really paid off.
I have been packing my little red cooler filled with dulse dip, my essene bread, dried seaweed and cut veggies and fruit for snacks. Thank goodness I had that! I am really making an effort to plan my food the nite before so that I can remain on track. It just makes it easier so live this raw food lifestyle.
I am sooooo happy. An new restaurant opened in Chicago that is completely raw! Finally, a 2nd restaurant. With Chicago being such a big city, I ... read more
Next Cleanse. Raw Quickies... 17 y
Next Cleanse, Dulse Dips
Well, I have started with my Parasite/Kidney cleanse. I talked to the ’Apothecary’ and he told me to do that cleanse for a week and then do a bowel cleanse separate (P & B) because the bentonite sucks everything out (even the good stuff) and then I could move on to the Liver Flush and then run whatever cleanses again that I feel I should do. Only confirming everything that I have been researching. (Don’t get me wrong, I do not doubt anything I have found out, I just wanted to confirm all the herbs and what not I was buying since I am a rookie!)
You all have been fabulous! All this kn ... read more
Transition-I am so annoyed at myself 17 y
I suck when transitioning off a fast. I fell off! I ate my gosh darn dehydrates I
have been making! I came across a little bit of stress this evening, and that made me do it. Obviously, I do know where my eating downfalls come from. Yes, yes I know it is not like I went out and had a steak and cheesecake, but I feel like it because I have been studying the protocols so hard and I am going to start the kidney/parasite cleanse tomorrow. What is my problem?!?!
But I have resolved myself and I will work it off at the gym tomorrow. I have forgiven myself (almost), but I will sweat it ou ... read more
Transition and my UTI 17 y
Trans, UTI, Raw Dehydrates
Well, thank goodness my system is clean b/c my uti cleared up in about 6 hours...took the tincture and some boiron homeopathy pellets.
But am feeling a bit ’off kilter’ today. I gave my self an enema today. Well, I would like to say that I think it got some good stuff out b/c I do feel a ’lightened’ spirit, I mean in a good way. It just feels so good to have my system clean. (Despite I am feeling ugh today).
Raw Food Stuff -
My flax crackers are doing great.
Flax Cracker recipe:
Ground Flax Seeds

Ending MC...but... 17 y
Ending MC, Transition
I had no time to blog yesterday and I was feeling quite lost. It was a rough day b/c I had to work. I usually don’t work on Sundays, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
So I was planning on going on with my Fast (WG and Coconut H2O), well, I went to Sherwyn’s to get all my herbs and tinctures for my Parasite/Kidney/Liver cleanse...well, low and behold I get a UTI!!!! Think it is too much to do the kidney cleanse at the moment b/c of all the stuff going on...anyway, bought some homeopathy and tinctures at Whole Foods and because I have been fasting, I hope that this goes fast!
Anyway ... read more
Day 13 Still goin',
MC, Essene Bread
Gosh, my lemons won’t go away! Still on that, did an enema, quick one, this morning. I just can’t get things moving with the senna tea nor the sea salts. So this is the way I have to go. I just do it every other day b/c I am afraid of my bowels getting ’addicted’, plus I have an *h* factor to contend with that I recieved so lovingly from childbirth ;). Had rejuvelac with some probiotics and kamut. So am trying to transition over to my next step.
Back to my essene bread that from sprouts I had been sprouting this week. It is smells soooo good! This time I used the following:

Day 12 - Not Hungry 17 y
Transitioning out of MC, some raw shopping tips
I am just not hungry. Am I going in a ’bad place’? Or is this ok?
Well, (gentleman, pardon me), my cycle started a week early. This has happened when I endure a longer fast. I know that is a good thing because the cycle is a ’cleansing/detox’ action the body is taking. I was told by my Detox/Raw Food mentor, that this is also a good time to fast because the body is cleaning house.
I really am just not even hungry for the lemonade. But I made myself drink it. I also had some broth with extra cayenne because I was FREEZING! At work I have a mini space heater pointed at me direct ... read more
Day 11 - Final Day? 17 y
Day 11 - burned out
Ok. Today, I am actually sick of the drink now. But I do not have a taste for anything else. I actually do not have a taste for food, but I was talking big about the coconut water and wheatgrass. I did a 2 oz. wheatgrass shot today, felt a bit woozy after it, it has been about two months since I did one. blech! But I do not have an appetite for coconut water either. Oh well...what to do, what to do...
Juice fast? I know, I know, I have to move on to the other cleanses, I really want to but I need to read up on the whole eating protocol and get my herbs!
I think I am in some ki ... read more
Day 10 - MC...What now? 17 y
Day 10 - Time to move on
Previous Page, Page 1
Ok, so here it is day 10, just about over...how do I feel? Great! Still have a few lemons. Not sure how long I will be going. I think I will keep going until lemons are gone and I think I am going to go over to wheatgrass and coconut water for a few days. I love coconut water. I do not need to reiterate what amazing qualities that coconut water has, do I? ;).
I ate broth with spirulina flakes for lunch, think I overdid it, because I am so fulllll! Only lost 1/2 lb. I know the weight loss is slowing, which is why I am going to go to my change in fast per above. Just not sure i ... read more
