vitamin B12 deficiency

I’ve said before that I really want to stay away from too much ‘health education’ stuff in relation to being a raw vegan and I will, but found a loophole when I figured that a little ditty about my B12 deficiency is more experiential…

whole foods plant-based diet good, but not as good as raw…

I haven’t been a very good raw foodie since I saw Forks over Knives the weekend before last… A combination of feeling good about the health benefits of a whole food plant based diet and the eight straight days of Boston rain resulted in me…

raw vegan vs. whole food plant based diets

I finally saw Forks Over Knives this afternoon and it was as good as I expected it / wanted it to be! It provides a good balance of scientific research and clinical evidence, statistics and human experience, fact and practical advice that illustrate the…

spring and alfalfa sprouts

I really don’t know where to start. I have verbal (mental?) diarrhea, or whatever I should call far too many thoughts running around in my head. I just got back from my first hot yoga class in 2 months having finally recovered from two sprained ankles…

vegan whims and raw food craziness

I’m good at whims. Small whims, large whims… in fact, I can be downright whimsical. And not in a flighty way either, but in a weighty way, one in which I end up changing jobs, and countries (from Australia, to England, to America), and…
