Lessons From Amal Clooney

georgeamalWhat can we learn from George Clooney’s new bride, Amal? I’m not going to talk about how she is skinny, because nobody is even thinking about that. They are mostly talking about her accomplishments and what she has done for humanity.

And I’m happy for young girls to see that Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor chose an accomplished and intelligent women to be his life companion. It is a big win for feminism. As I see it, the moral of this fairy tale that I hope will seep into popular consciousness might be to not ask how you can land a man (or woman) but rather to ask how you can best use your unique gifts to be of service to humankind.

This blog/newsletter is about raw eating for health, beauty and happiness. And relationship health is a part of health. So much happiness is affected by relationship health. And though I’m not a relationship expert, I have learned in my quest for becoming a whole/healthy person inside and out, that the key to health, happiness, and even healthy relationships (from attracting one to maintaining one to getting out of a bad one), is to have your own life.

More, to really be fully engaged in doing your mission on Earth. And whether that means gathering life experiences and doing inner work to discover your passion or whether it means gathering your forces to embark on the first terrifying steps along the path that is calling to you, to me this is really the most fulfilling, rewarding and sane thing to keep as your main focus.

We are here on this fascinating world in these wondrous bodies with unlimited minds and with an abounding array of intense opportunities to learn, to grow, to think, to act, to experience, to change ourselves, to change the world, to help others. One of the beautiful things about being on our troubled planet is that there is no shortage of meaningful work to be done!

When we are completely interested in and engaged in our own journey, focused on our end goals, dealing with the inner and outer obstacles with courage and determination, then I think we are really living. Obviously, a balance of work and play/relaxation is important for health, and we probably shouldn’t let passion morph into an out-of-balance extremism or fanaticism which is mentally unhealthy.

But in being an active participant in our own life, and directing it through having direction, we can I believe discover who we are, develop a strong sense of ourself, and live a fuller expression of who we are, which might be the best gift we can share with our fellow humans!

In Joy,

Virginia’s Journey


Interview with Virginia…

Jinjee: What made you decide to try a raw vegan diet?

Virginia: I was interesting in going raw first and foremost to lose weight. I was already vegan, but struggled with eating high calorie, high fat foods. And, of course, there is plenty of processed vegan foods out there and I wanted to get away from depending on them.

Second I’ve been reading your website and your blogs for at least ten years. Watching your kids grow up so healthy, seeing your own before and after pics, and of course Storm and his amazing body all pushed me to say if they can do it, so can I!”

Jinjee: How are you doing on the Programs?

Virginia: As you know, I’m disabled, and that comes with its own set of problems. It’s hard to workout, and when I do my back always rewarded me with two or three days in bed recovering. But exercising on this diet has been completed different. Yes, sometimes I wake up sore, but I can take a few pain pills and be on my way. Better yet, once I become used to that exercise (the weights for instance) I don’t wake up sore at all! I never thought diet would be the answer to my exercise problems!

I’ve recently gotten a hand cycle and I can’t be stopped now! I’m experimenting with my WII, which I can play tennis, baseball, boxing and some balance exercises (sitting down). I did that last night and though I was sore this morning, now I know I’ll be fine after I’ve done it a few times. I’m going out riding in just a bit, something I never could have done before.

Jinjee: Where can people learn more about you and follow your raw journey?

Virginia: On my blog at The 31st is my little blurb about how great I felt on the diet. As of now it’s on the bottom of the page.

Jinjee: Thanks Virginia! You are rawsome!!!

Virginia completed the 21 Day Raw Cleanse and is currently on the 28 Days Raw Program. She plans to share her new After pics with us at the end of the 28 Days! :)

In Joy!

Journey Through Moodiness to Self-Love and Confidence

oceanskySometimes I’m in a bad mood. I allow myself these. I think it’s good to be in a bad mood sometimes. Right now my bad mood allowed me to close the door on everyone and just take some time alone and write. I told Jome to do the dishes. I’m in a no nonsense mood. I like it. I embrace more of these. They aren’t actually bad. They just aren’t fluffy and light. And that’s great. I’m too fluffy and light sometimes. I like myself like this. This is the journey! This is the journey of confidence, getting to know myself, getting to love myself. Yes. I get it.

Journey through Moodiness to Self-Love and Confidence

1. accept your mood

2. accept this is you

3. observe yourself in this mood

4. learn about yourself

5. love yourself

6. feel confident


I have to make a complex dinner. I don’t really want to do this. I got roped in. I don’t like doing things if they aren’t on my do-list and/or aren’t fun. Even fun stuff I prefer to do if it fulfills a goal. I guess I’m goal-oriented. Maybe I need to be able to let go and relax, go with the flow, realize that the Universe has better plans for me than I could have made myself.

In Joy!

Gratitude and Beauty Practice

jinjgratitudeLike many of you, I’ve had a gratitude practice for years. I am aware that being grateful is a key to happiness. And that the more you are grateful the more you notice all the things to be grateful for. It’s an ever-expanding practice.

But lately I’ve noticed that when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror I sometimes have a frowny face. How can that be, if I’m practicing gratitude daily? Well, I think my gratitude practice has become a bit of a list-making exercise. I notice the good things and add them to my mental list of things to be grateful for.

So, the new project, then, is to make sure that I take the time to not only notice all the nice things that happen in my life but to also allow the gratitude for them to spread throughout my being, into a big inner smile and outer smile, and let the joy of it all suffuse my aura and actually change my energy. Thus I’m not just practicing gratitude, I’m becoming a grateful person, which means a happy person, which means a beautiful person, radiating joy and love.

Can I find something to be grateful for every moment? Can I feed myself a constant diet of joy as my gratitude practice evolves?

Can I even be grateful for the lows? Yes. I had a wonderful insight about this that I can’t wait to share with you soon!

In Joy!

Sahira’s Journey

sahirabna2 sahirabna

Just received these Before and Afters and testimonial from Sahira who participated in the 21 Day Raw Cleanse.

Sahira wrote…

Three weeks ago i was experiencing bloating, constipation, headaches and fatigue. Then I decided to join to 21 day cleanse since the first week all of the above symptoms have disappeared. I am very surprised because I thought I was a healthy eater but obviously I was eating the wrong foods! As you can see I have lost a few inches but I Am committed to this way of eating and I will continue to work on my exercising routine to help transform my body. I feel very happy full of energy and thank god no more bloating!

Thank you and happy new year

Why New Years Day is the Best Time to Go 100% Raw


– It’s memorable and it’s good to have an easy-to-remember date like Christmas, New Years, or your Birthday to go raw on.

– Here’s why that’s important. It helps to be able to easily count how many months or years you’ve been raw, because then you can easily see how far you’ve come, and that inspires you to keep on going!

– You don’t want to lose that New Years Day start-date advantage, so that keeps you on the path too!

– 2015 is a nice easy year to calculate from. In 2020 you’ll be able to say you’ve been 100% raw for 5 years! Or in 2042 you will hopefully be able to say “I’ve been raw for 27 years). Notice I didn’t say 100%. Because it isn’t likely anyone can hold 100% for 27 years! But if you strive to eat mostly raw, i.e. high raw, and you are dedicated to eating raw recipes as the main course of your main meals of the day for instance, then you still reap the tremendous benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.

– This is the time to make resolutions, to make this the best year ever. And no matter what your resolutions are for this year, a healthy lifestyle is going to make all of them more doable, more fun, more enjoyable, and more rewarding!

How To Thrive on a Raw Diet

everything500Here are some of the main things I’ve learned about eating 100% raw and thriving without deficiencies! Getting this right can keep you from falling off the wagon in 2015!

- Eat a balanced raw diet including plenty of fruits, vegetables, dark leafy greens, sprouts, nuts, seeds, seaweeds, seasonings, and fermented foods. These are all true superfoods each with their own healing properties. 

- Avoid dehydrated foods as a staple of the diet, use as occasional treats instead. They can cause bloating and can dehydrate you. Remember, fresh is best!

- Avoid raw cacao, agave nectar, and other stimulants as well as expensive pre-packed prepared raw foods that are often high in sodium. They can be addictive and cause cravings for cooked foods.

- Combine foods that allow maximum absorption of minerals and nutrients. Combining vitamin C with iron allows the iron to be better absorbed. Fats help with the absorption of many minerals too. 

- Eat nuts and seeds in formats that allow for ease of digestion. Soaked nuts, nut milks, nut patés and nut cheeses are simple to make, satisfying, delicious, and a lot easier than chewing raw nuts! Nuts are where you get your protein on raw!

- Get a collection of raw recipes that you like, that are tasty, easy to make and affordable. You’re not going to stick to the lifestyle long term if you feel deprived!

- Get daily exercise, sufficient sleep, drink water, get outside every day, think happy thoughts, work passionately, and enjoy your relationships. Focusing on healthy eating without attention to other areas of life can cause imbalance.

- Eat three good meals a day, sitting down, consciously enjoying and nurturing yourself. 

- Snack on as much fruit, water-with-lemon and herb tea as you want! Snacking on veggie sticks of jicama, cucumber, celery and carrot is always a good thing too!

For a detailed raw vegan menu plan with directions on how to shop for and prepare each meal every day for four weeks join in our 28 Day Raw New Years Program starting Monday Jan 5th! Sign up before Friday for a sweet deal with our Early Bird Special at…


At first they’ll ask you WHY you’re doing it. Later they’ll ask you HOW you did it

The 28 Day Raw New Years Session begins a week from today on Monday January 5th! Find out all about how you can release weight, gain energy, and rejuvenate naturally now at and get raw support for the whole year!
