Sunshine in the Soul AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
Time has crept up on me tonight and I’m getting a later-than-usual start. That may be, in part, because I got up late this morning.

What I Eat in a Day Raw Food Recipes
People frequently ask me, "Laura-Jane, what does your average raw food day look like?" My day is not this totally different, fancy raw recipes type of day - no, I tend to eat simply, and I return to my favorites over and over. Every day includes lots of veggies and fruits. And I pretty much start every day with a ...

This is a HAMWhey. Kristen's Raw
HAMWhey ingredients. Good stuff. I find myself, way more often than not, thinking about food when I’m going to bed at night.

Sunshine! AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
Since the dark went away, I know there had to be sun behind all those clouds. It hasn’t peeked its face through all day today, though. This morning, there was a thick fog. I was able to make out the house situated north/northwest of my house. This is how it looked at 8:45. By noon, the fog had lifted but ...

We got to feed the chickens (greens and lettuce!), see the sheep, ducks and beautiful greenhouses. Then we went to cafe and ate a great lunch! We had the Carrot Soup (every time ...

Mostly Cloudy AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
When I woke, it was to clouds. Not unusual, by any means. Then it cleared off enough for the sun to break through. It was glorious—while it lasted. By the time DD called at almost 3 o’clock, the clouds had moved back in again. Her weather sounded so much better than here! I got jealous! A few minutes ago, I ...
