Do I Need a Dehydrator?

When people first “go raw”, they often very quickly become curious about whether to buy a dehydrator, and when you think of the many possibilities they offer of creating raw alternatives to cooked foods, a dehydrator does seem to be an indispensable piece of equipment in a raw kitchen.

I’ll share my own thoughts with you in a moment. First, let’s take a look at what a dehydrator is and what it does. Continue reading

The Truth About Comfort Eating ~ Part 1

Isn’t it funny how those foods we crave when we feel down, upset or lonely are called “comfort foods”, when what they actually do in reality is only add to our discomfort?

How many people, do you think, are walking around today carrying an extra 5, 10, 15, 20 lb or more of “comfort” around their middle, hips or thighs? Can it really be that comfortable to be wearing our pain, now compounded into physical form as well, as if the emotional form was not already enough?!

Today we’re going to wake up and smell the coffee/bread/potatoes/cheese/chocolate for what they really are, but before we do that, let’s take a moment to look at why we feel we need comforting anyway. Continue reading

How to Support Yourself Externally As You Experience Raw Turbulence

In last week’s article we looked at how to support yourself emotionally as you transition cellularly and spiritually to a life lived on raw. This week it’s time to turn our attention to how to support yourself in the outside world as you go through your journey of raw transformation.

First of all, to set the scene: At a certain stage in the raw food journey – usually pretty early on – the emotional stuff starts to rise up. As the fog of years of less-than-great eating/living lifts we start to see life, and ourselves, differently. Sometimes very differently. This is so common that I don’t know that I’ve ever not heard someone talk about “a fog lifting that I didn’t even know was there”, so it’s certainly a very real phenomenon, and when it happens it’s as if our whole world is starting to be rocked.
