I have been conducting a poll over in our private members only Facebook group to see if people were aware that they could change the site background color to either white or black. I was amazed as to how many people didn't know that they had the option. If you haven't already, please pop over there and answer the poll.  Have a blessed day! amie sue

How to Encourage Loved Ones to Eat Healthy

#2 - Successfully Transitioning Your Diet, Members Only

I feel so blessed to have a husband who supports eating healthy.  I will never forget something he said to me early on in our relationship... "I don't care if we wear second-hand clothing to save money, but we will always aim to purchase organic foods."  We have held true to this for over ten years. BUT I realize and understand that a lot of people struggle with getting the whole family on board when adapting a whole food diet, cooked and/or raw.

#4 – Vitamin B12 for Vegans

#3 - Nutrition Basics, Members Only

Vegans, whether cooked or raw, are at risk of not getting enough B12 into their diet. Vitamin B12 benefits your mood, energy level, memory, heart, skin, hair, digestion and more. It is also an essential vitamin for addressing adrenal fatigue, multiple metabolic functions—including enzyme production, DNA synthesis, and hormonal balance, and maintaining healthy nervous and cardiovascular systems. So this is nothing to sneeze at. It is wise to be tested regularly for homocysteine or methylmalonic acid levels, which can indicate a B12 deficiency.

Are Raw Desserts Healthy for You?

#2 - Successfully Transitioning Your Diet, #3 - Nutrition Basics, Members Only

When it comes to raw desserts, just because a person slaps the words raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, or (amazingly) all of the above to a food doesn't necessarily make it a FREE FOR ALL dessert. Naturally, these taglines come with powerful effects if you add them into your life but we must do so in moderation. First and foremost we need to learn how to pay attention to our own bodies (not just our taste buds) and feed it accordingly.

#1 - Welcome, Start Here, Free Recipes (Photo View), Kitchen Diary

The definition of “raw” is R.A.W. — Real, Alive and Whole.
Whole foods are found in nature, only have one ingredient, and it hasn’t been processed. Whether you decide to eat a raw diet, cooked diet, or (what I recommend) a diet infused with both worlds… whole foods are key.
