The Raw Dilemma

guacamoletayshaYes we know a 100% raw vegan diet can be a very healing diet and we know you can lose a lot of weight very fast on this diet. It is a fabulous lifestyle to prevent disease and to increase anti-aging and longevity.

But for many of us it just doesn’t work to do it long-term. Some people become deficient, crave other foods, start to look old, and experience various physical problems from B12 and mineral deficiencies to adrenal fatigue and hair and tooth loss to mental illness.

How can we enjoy the incredible benefits of a raw food diet without risking undesirable side effects?

Is the answer in eating superfoods, avoiding superfoods, eliminating certain foods, food groups or macronutrients, eating the right percentage of macronutrients, eating the right supplements, avoiding supplements, eating fresh whole foods, eating a balanced and varied raw diet, or is it something else?

Well I’m experimenting with a cooked / raw integration. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s getting better. If I can get it to work as well as a raw diet for myself I will let you know! If I can’t, I’ll be going back to the drawing board and attempting again to optimize a raw diet that can work for me in the long-term. Another thought I’ve had is to go back-and-forth between an optimized raw vegan diet and a healthy cooked diet to get the best of both worlds.

But for now, the best diet I know for rapid yet sustainable, healthy weight release and overall health and wellbeing is still the 100% fresh, raw, balanced diet outlined, detailed and demonstrated in The 21 Day Raw Cleanse and the 28 Days Raw Program.

Weight Loss Hacks

Preserve the taste of the last yummy thing you ate!

taboulitayshaHere’s an awesome little trick for eating less that takes just a simple shift in perspective.

If you’re a person who loves food, this is particularly easy!

This falls into the realm of conscious eating. When you are conscious of the delicious flavors of your food, you can be conscious of the lovely aftertaste for quite a while after eating.

So if you are offered dessert or tempted to eat something shortly after eating, it is easy to choose instead to continue to enjoy the lingering flavor of the last food you ate.

You might say then “No thank you, I’m still savoring the taste of dinner in my mouth”.

Imagine if this cuts down on your snacking by 25%. Over the course of a year it might add up to being quite noticeable!

A few little lifestyle changes like this can actually make a big difference. For instance, you add in a house-cleaning day weekly and you never sit on public toilet seats.

Women who clean their own houses are 20 lbs lighter than others on average.

And by popping a chair-pose instead of sitting on public toilets you not only save time applying seat covers but you build your thigh muscles, one of the biggest and therefore most calorie-burning muscles in your body!

Have any weight-loss hacks to share? Post a reply below!

What automatically happens on a Raw Food Diet

Artwork by Raven Talifero

Artwork by Raven Talifero

A nice thing about eating a raw vegan diet is that you don’t have to think about so many different rules of healthy eating. By doing the one thing (eating raw) you naturally follow pretty much every dietary rule out there! For instance…

You don’t eat packaged or processed food
You don’t eat gluten, soy, or MSG
You don’t eat animal products, red meat, dairy, eggs (or anything with cholesterol)
You don’t eat free radicals, trans fats, or denatured proteins
You don’t eat carcinogens
Your diet is anti-inflammatory
Your diet is high in anti-oxidants
Your diet is high in nutrients, minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients, electrolytes, and fiber
Your food has a high water-content
Your food is nutrient dense
Your food is low-calorie
Your food is low-fat
Your food is free of refined sugars
Your food is fresh
Your food is healthy
You’re eating real food
You eat food that your body recognizes as food
You eat food that your Grandmother ate
You eat the rainbow
You are eating clean
It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle
You eat mostly fruits and vegetables
You eat healthy fats
You eat healthy proteins
You eat healthy carbs
You eat toxin-free
You don’t have to count calories
You can eat as much as you want!

Imagine all the ways this benefits a body!

Self-Esteem Creates Symmetry

screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-11-01-38-amI was thinking about how beautiful Oprah looked in a recent video.

Here is a woman who did not always feel beautiful and yet is becoming more beautiful as she ages.

I was trying to imagine what goes into that process.

And I think that maybe when you make decisions in your life that are balanced, you become a more balanced person and so your features come into a more balanced symmetry.

I think there are many other factors of character that show up on our faces over time. Certainly our default emotional state has some effect on the character lines in our face.

What are some things you can see in a persons face? Loving, caring, joy, pain, determination, hopelessness, resentment, sensuality, peace, worry, curiosity, openness, intelligence…

Certainly healthy living has a lot of bearing on the way that we look as we age.

And I think all of this helps to further validate the 3-prong idea that health is determined by how we eat, how active we are, and by our inner emotional life.

I am honored to run a series of raw diet programs that activate these three areas to generate tremendous momentum which makes leveling up ones health almost easy.

I don’t know why this works…

rotategreensHonestly I don’t know why the raw vegan diet works so well for so many people!

I read a lot of alternative health news letters and some of them just make me cringe. We all talk about things we really don’t have the first clue about. And that seems so wrong because people are relying on you for their health.

And I can tell when a title is being alarmist for marketing purposes. And it just seems so unfair to grab your attention like that.

So I have been examining my own practices to see if I really feel okay about what I’m doing marketing these raw food programs.

I really like sharing my insights and my experiences rather than stating facts that I may have heard but don’t really have the scientific background to know whether they are true or not.

I love marketing my programs ( because they actually have helped so many people to release weight and feel better.

They have even helped people who had been raw for a while and were not thriving on the diet.

I’m not saying this raw diet is the best diet for everyone all the time. But I don’t feel like it could ever hurt to try this raw diet for three or four weeks and there are numerous benefits to doing so.

I do have some ideas about why the raw vegan diet works so well. I have some theories. They’re just my own crack-pot theories. But some things are common sense. And some things are proven science; the toxins that are formed in foods during cooking.

But is that why the raw diet works? There have not been many studies on this. I’d love to get a food science degree and go into research on this topic.

Although I don’t know why it works, I do believe that the raw vegan diet works phenomenally well for weight loss and improving health, having experienced tremendous benefits and healing myself and seeing a great many success stories in my work in the field over the last 23 years. (

By the way, there are 2 days left in the super-low Halloween Special on the 21 Day Raw Cleanse at

Loved Iyanla’s 10 rules for success

I love everything this woman has to say about how to be truly successful – and I believe she defines success as happiness. But number 6 on this list of her’s below was something I have been trying to tell my clients for ages. I’ve run into people who thrive on the raw diet and even heal on it, but who then give it up because someone else disagrees with it. It is nice to hear how passionately she advocates holding onto your own clarity in the face of other’s not understanding.

“Never judge your clarity based on somebody else’s response. I don’t need your agreement; I just need your support”.
– Iyanla Vanzant

Here are Iyanla’s rules for success…

1. nurture your vision

2. love what you do

3. stop whining

4. keep it simple

5. refuse to fail

6. hold to your clarity

7. be authentic

8. be mindful of your words

9. be good to you

10. be clear

Healthy Living with Raw Food


I love how our culture has become truly interested in Healthy Living! People are working out more, reading labels, and more and more people are aware that eating whole foods is one of the important keys to staying healthier longer and preventing disease.

We also know the importance of drinking water, getting the right amount of sleep, having social connections and a warm primary relationship and attending to our inner life in positive ways. We know the importance of reducing and/or managing stress.

In balance, a raw food diet can be a wonderful addition to or even the base of a healthy lifestyle. Yes, we see a lot of instances where people become too restrictive or obsessive and it can be off-balance. That’s why my Programs focus on a balanced raw lifestyle, with sufficient variety and richness in the menu plan along with recipes that help ensure the absorption of many of the most essential nutrients.

I’ve realized through my 15 years in this work that any one diet is not right for all people at all times. I’ve many times helped my program participants to adapt the program to their unique needs, and encourage it when people want to make various adaptations and substitutions of their own.

Some people use the programs for the exercise and support in the main and only loosely follow the menu plan or substitute with their own mode of raw eating.

My thinking is that even if it turns out that a 100% raw diet, even a balanced one, is not right for someone, they will still have benefitted from the experience of going raw for a few weeks or more!

You really get to know your body, your relationship to food, and the power of raw foods for energizing, beautifying and healing.  And you get to learn a variety of inner work exercises for emotional balancing and personal growth. Aside from that, the social connections, especially with a Program Pal are often invaluable according to previous participants.

We know healthy living is about balance. Don’t be afraid to explore new modalities in your journey into exploring a healthier lifestyle. As my Grandfather told me “Moderation in all things, including moderation!”

Thanks for Sharing Why You Went Raw….

bnacollageWow! 42 of you completed the online survey “Why I went Raw”! And almost as many people responded via email.

The survey results show that the most common reasons people go raw or are interested in going raw are:

1. To get healthy, eat healthier, or for overall health.

2. To lose weight, eat more naturally, and eat clean.

3. To have more energy, for longevity, and fitness

4. Concern for animal rights, improve brain function, and prevent disease

Some of the emails I received from people also listed…

  • to get skinny
  • to lose weight |||
  • get healthy ||
  • eat more naturally
  • heal from pneumonia
  • to heal from an illness ||
  • to heal from hep c
  • to heal from diabetes
  • to stop eating so many carbs
  • Gospel of Peace
  • Believe it’s the best for my body inside and out
  • detox my organs
  • improve immune system
  • improve digestive system
  • prevention of disease
  • to stop craving sweets
  • integrity (no more fake foods)
  • enzymes
  • live to be 120 for my grandkids
  • kindness to animals
  • to avoid surgery (fibroid)

It was very interesting to look at the survey results. Many people selected multiple (sometimes 10 or more!) reasons for going / being raw. They spent an average of 2 minutes on the survey page.

Several people also included an “Other” reason or only specified an “Other” reason.

Some of these “Other” responses that people wrote under “Please specify” on the survey were:

  • Wife died and I stopped going out to eat
  • To glow from the inside out
  • To be the best me
  • Heal fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue
  • Heal migraine
  • Get off Big Pharma medications
  • high blood sugar, tooth problems, chest pains
  • As part of natural regimen to stabilize symptoms of bipolar disorder
  • Eating raw to stay cooler in the summer
  • Fatigue
  • Prostate health
  • Took a workshop
  • Adventurous
  • Fun!
  • Prevent disease
  • I haven’t been to the doctor in 30 years so it’s my Health insurance!
  • I have life-threatening conditions.
  • I enjoy Biblical food suggestions.

Almost all the reasons listed were selected by at least someone. Out of the 55 reasons listed on the survey, the only ones that were not selected at all were:

  • heal cancer
  • control MS
  • heal crohns / colitis
  • control crohns / colitis
  • was brought up raw

Healing heart disease and diabetes were also very low (1 and 2 people respectively).

I am surprised that healing serious illnesses was not a more common reason for going raw when there are so many stories from people who healed themselves out there.

If you’d like to look at the Survey Results yourself, here’s the link:

This Hidden Ingredient Causes Obesity!

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-12-08-51-pmDid you know that eating foods with MSG can cause you to gain a ton of weight without even overeating?

It’s true! In fact, when scientists need to experiment on obese mice, they give mice MSG to make them bigger quickly.*

But MSG is hidden in processed and packaged foods under all kinds of tricky names. Of course you can avoid processed foods altogether with a raw vegan diet.

Otherwise, here is a list of the most common names that MSG hides behind:

Glutamic Acid


Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein

Hydrolyzed Soy Protein

Hydrolyzed (any vegetable) Protein

Anything Hydrolyzed

Calcium Caseinate

Textured Protein

Soy Protein

Whey Protein

Natural Flavoring

Natural Flavors

You’re the good kind of fat….

Sometimes it just takes the right salad dressing to get me back in a salad habit!

Here’s one that can literally get me out of bed in the morning I’m so excited to eat it…

Avocado, Honey and Garlic Dressing!

So simple. Makes the salad creamy and sweet and makes whatever it touches delicious! And the garlic with its anti-inflammatory properties is a boon for knocking out whatever ails you!

Creamy Avocado Dressing Recipe

1 ripe avocado
1 tbsp honey
1 clove garlic, cored and minced

Mash avocado
Stir in honey and garlic

Add to baby greens, romaine or any salad you like!

Women’s health revolution

IMG_5903Nobody is going to look out for our health except for ourselves.

The government certainly doesn’t have a care. Our places of business will take as much as we are able to give. Even our families, the people who love us most, will use us up.

Of course this is because we are seen as all powerful, never ending givers of energy and upholders of all things nurturing and good.

And yes we’ve earned that sort of respect.

But how to keep on giving. How to keep that energy up for a lifetime. Without getting run down.

It is perhaps our biggest responsibility, but we must take care of ourselves in order to take care of those in this life who count on us, and in order to enjoy life ourselves, which is also important! – And to help heal and change the world, as many women are feeling the call to do in these turbulent times! (…and many powerful people feel that this is exactly what is needed right now!)

So I have a program starting Monday that is going to empower you….

– It is going to pamper you with the highest quality food for your engine!

– It is going to save you time on thinking about what to shop for and what to eat every day for four weeks!

– It is going to nourish your soul with enriching and enlightening inner exercises to orient you to your happiest self!

– It is going to inspire you daily with a workout schedule and videos to get you active in fun ways that will quickly give you more energy!

– It will give you a natural beauty treatment from within that yields results beyond anything you could get at a spa or with other expensive treatments!

– The healing diet, exercise and innercise will give you a whole new lifestyle and our friendly community of participants will be there to support you all the way!

So, however you want to participate in changing the world, I hope you’ll give yourself this boost of unbelievable health and wellness to give you all the power and energy you’ll need!

It’s our time to change the world, starting with our own health!

(Men are welcome too!)

On not giving up…

flowersI find that not giving up is a habit that takes persistence. It sounds redundant because I’m basically saying not giving up takes not giving up. It’s true. But there are so many layers to this that it’s easy to forget. Especially in the midst of struggle.

For instance, you may be trying to lose weight by establishing a regular workout habit or a new dietary lifestyle. Maybe you have tried and failed numerous times. Maybe sometimes you don’t even feel like trying anymore. Maybe you’ve given up on yourself. It can be a long uphill battle, so that’s natural to feel that way sometimes. Maybe you think that because you have never succeeded before that you will never succeed in the future either. This is the crucial time to not give up. If even one part of you has given up, if you can keep going somehow with some part of yourself, that is enough.

For instance if you aren’t able to eat right but you can manage to exercise, load up on the exercise for now. Maybe you are feeling sedentary but you can manage to do some inner work; do it! You can make progress in one area and at some point it starts to spill over into other areas!

Suddenly a breakthrough happens . And it is because you didn’t give up. It was worth it, all those tries and failed attempts. Sometimes that’s what it takes. Some mountains are really high. You might think they’re not. But they are. We don’t really know how much effort it is going to take to make a breakthrough until we get there. And only when you get there do you realize that it was your work, your persistence, your attempts, your false starts, your failures, and especially your determination to not give up that got you there.

So stay positive, celebrate every little victory, notice and give yourself credit for all of the trying and struggling and all of the efforts that you are making.

I felt a breakthrough this past week; I’d been praying more and that usually triggers needed breakthroughs for me. Then today I was standing there brushing my hair and I thought of putting on a video while I was brushing, as has been my habit lately. And I suddenly realized I didn’t want to put on a video. I was perfectly comfortable just being in my own head. That was real proof for me that I’ve made a shift in my consciousness, and of what was the problem before; I had been in a stressed out headspace that made being in my own head uncomfortable and something to be avoided, hence the video watching.

Progress can happen bit by bit over time, almost un-noticeably, so stop and take stock of your journey from time to time. Or progress can happen all at once in the form of a breakthrough – whether it’s a breakthrough in consciousness, attitude, or energy.

So develop the habit of not giving up! Keep a little flame of hope, faith or trust alive and it will light a path through the worst of times.

In Joy!

In Defense of Food

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 3.44.30 PMMy Mom sent me a link to a documentary called “In Defense of Food” but the video wouldn’t work on my browser. So I searched for it on youtube and found this talk by the same name, by the author of “In Defense of Food”, Michael Pollan, that was super interesting!

What I learned from “In Defense of Food” talk by Michael Pollan:

1. We in America are puritanical in our view of all foods as either good or bad. This is perhaps because of our Puritan roots. We eat for nutrition rather than social connection and enjoyment.

2. In the 50’s when the link between saturated fats and heart disease came out, the FDA put out a Public Service Announcement to “Eat less beef”. The cattle industry lobbied and had that changed to: “Choose more meats that are lower in saturated fats”.

This set a precedent to talk about all future scientific findings about food without mentioning actual whole foods but only the  nutrients concerned. Instead of “eat more fruits and vegetables” which were found to fight cancer, they put out “eat more vitamin C, anti-oxidants and beta carotene”.

This was all very confusing for the average person. And it was also the birth of “Nutrientism”. Nutrients are invisible abstract things to fear or covet, making nutrientism almost a religion.

We always have to have a nutrient good-guy of the moment, and a nutrient bad-guy of the moment. And they often change!

3. Processed foods masquerade as healthy foods because the food industry changes their make-up to reflect the latest fads, slapping a label on them announcing “Low-Fat, High Fiber” or “Gluten-Free, Fortified with anti-oxidants” thereby making it look like these empty calories are the healthy foods to eat. Meanwhile the true healthy foods, the fruits and vegetables, sit quietly in the produce section like unsung heroes.

4. It’s clear that humans can adapt to many different kinds of diets and the variety of diets around the world are pretty healthy. The one diet that we have not been able to adapt to is the processed food diet of America. Our diet causes heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

5. The rules of healthy eating are simple….

– Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.

– Shop from the perimeter of the supermarket, not the aisles (The perimeter has the perishable foods. The aisles have the foods that don’t go bad, because not even the micro-organisms that break foods down are interested in them or recognize them as food).

– Only buy things your great-grandmother would recognize as food.

If anyone finds the documentary by the same title as this book to watch online, I’d love it if you could post a link to it in the comments! I’m going to read the book too eventually, as it sounds both important and inspiring!

You can find the book “In Defense of Food” on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and other book sellers online.

I noticed an improvement in my sleep and now have peaceful dreams. I was an insomniac and had horrible nightmares and always tired. I am non-stop now, my 3 year old cant even keep up!

Better than stimulants…

Truly stimulating pic from

Truly stimulating pic from

Are you using stimulants to get through your day or to give you the energy you need for your life? Whether it’s coffee, caffeine, sugar, nicotine, pharmaceutical stimulants or other drugs…there is an alternative that doesn’t have the down-sides and is much more effective! — It’s called health!! 

The first time I felt the kind of health that comes with increased energy was when I first started eating a raw vegan diet.

Getting a good flow going in your life with healthy eating, exercise, sunshine, water, sleep and happiness can induce such a level of health that your energy becomes abundant, and your being is in chemical balance which makes you physically vibrant, emotionally stable and mentally at your peak.

What results from true health is change on every level and in every area of your life!

I have a program that I’ve developed over many years that not only shows you how to eat raw and live a balanced, healthy lifestyle, but that actually walks you through every step of the process from what to buy at the store to how to prepare every meal of the day, how to deal with the challenges that come up, the workouts, and even the inner work to deal with emotional detox and get yourself happy!

If you’re tired of the ups and downs of using stimulants like caffeine and sugar to make your life work and sick of the toll they are taking on your health and vitality over time, you are going to love this truly energizing way of life!

My next program is the  21 Day Raw Cleanse that starts on this coming Monday, July 25th. You can find out all about it at where you’ll see Before and After pictures and recipe/food pics too.

The Real Overpopulation Problem

feedlotYou may have heard the statistic that cow farts are the biggest cause of global warming. According to Huffington Post, that’s just a part of the way farming for meat is taking a toll on the environment and endangering life on earth.

Truly Einstein knew what he was talking about when he said “Becoming vegetarian is the single most important thing that people can do to ensure the survival of the human race”. Because we all know when we talk about saving the planet, that it is the people that are in danger of wiping out themselves through making the planet uninhabitable, and that the planet itself will be fine for quite some time.

Here’s how the Huffington Post article starts…

There’s an overpopulation problem alright, but not the one you might think. There are seven billion people on our planet, but times that number by 10 and you get the 70 billion farm animals driving the worst environmental crisis of modern times.

The impact of increased human numbers will come under renewed scrutiny this World Population Day (11 July). Rightly so; the faster we grow, the faster we are knocking down forests, killing off species and using too much water. Climate change is no longer a distant concept, but a tangible force already affecting so many people all over the world.

Overpopulation is too often seen as a standalone issue. This seems overly simplistic. Should we not rather address the specific things humans are actually doing? There is little doubt in the scientific community which single activity is to blame: the rise of animal agriculture, responsible for at least 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. This is more than all of the world’s transport – cars, buses, trains, planes, boats, ships – combined.
