The other day when Trump made his cruel tweet about banning transgendered persons in the military, I got annoyed at first, then really pissed off, and then depressed. Not just because the American president is a fear-mongering childish asshole, which I was already well aware of. I saw how some people were reacting positively to […]
A quick and easy self-assessment of personal health. Although I do like to get my blood work done and physical exam at least once a year, I don’t need a doctor to tell me whether or not I’m healthy every day. Here are a few easy clues I look for each day: POOP & FARTS. […]
“What is the difference between a Frugivore and a Fruitarian?” Frugivore describes biological design for nutrition intake and utilization. Fruitarian is a choice of eating a fruit-based diet which matches our biological design. We can choose to eat (or not eat) Fruitarian, which describes a fruit-based diet of 70-75% or greater of intake coming from […]
We played cards at our neighbor’s house the other day. We told them in advance that Cory is vegan and I am raw vegan fruitarian, but that raw fruits and veggies work just fine for both of us. They prepared a beautiful spread of fruits and veggies, and I have to say that they did an amazing job considering it was their first time buying for “our kind.” We also brought Rambutans and Lychees for them to try. Even some Durian Cucumber Salad! They are meat and potatoes grill-out drinking and smoking people, so I have to say that they were VERY kind and open-minded to try new things.
Anyway, there were lots of leftovers so they sent us home with them. I don’t normally eat baby carrots and broccoli… so what to do with these supplies? Well, I took a young coconut and used the water and tender meat to blend with the carrots, broccoli, and celery to make CREAM OF LEFTOVER VEGGIE TRAY SOUP. I topped it with the grape tomatoes and diced sugar snap peas. I ate the peach and grapes on another day. ?The cantaloupe was cut way too early and was rock solid, so that was the only thing I didn’t repurpose.
I had such a lovely conversation with a low carb Atkins/keto coworker this morning. I was excited to show him my Blueberry Jell-O! Just blend blueberries, pour in a dish or mold, and refrigerate overnight. They become gelatinous on their own! He thought it was very cool. Blueberries aren’t “low carb” but they aren’t very […]
At lunch today, a coworker looked at my plate of Rambutans and Lychees, and was shocked because I didn’t know where they were grown! She said, “I can’t believe you don’t know where your food comes from!” She was eating pizza covered in meat and cheese (no veggies) dripping with a bright orange oil. I […]
I’ve changed a little bit. It’s kinda cool to look back and see just how much. You can probably tell by my pictures that I never expected this to happen, until it actually did. I tried to wear the same dress and sort of pose the same way to be able to see the changes, […]
Yesterday, all my coworkers could talk about was the anticipation of their BBQ lunch that they had hyped up between daydreaming aloud with each other (and likely personal internalized hype) about how wonderful this meal on a pedestal would be for days prior to the event. This is the “best BBQ” around. “Rebecca can’t have […]
I had my full body measurements done again in the gym today. I’m gaining muscles with a low-protein low-fat diet (90/5/5 – 80/10/10) and have put on several pounds of muscle in the last month mainly in my thighs and chest, but also filling out my left side to match my right side. My waist […]
I fell in the gym today… twice? Maybe three times. It didn’t matter to me. Big awkward collapses with various noises and grunting and absolutely zero care about who was watching or judging. I smiled, wiped off my sweat, and got back on the machine to try again until burnout, which means literally falling out […]
