Go Hunting

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

I think the best way for us to make sure our diets are in line with our morals is to stay connected with the end-to-end processes that we support through our food choices. For example, if you’re a meat eater, then I would strongly recommend that you go hunting once in a while and eat […]

Mango Allergy

Friday, May 28th, 2010

One very odd side effect that happened to me after eating raw foods for a long time is that I somehow developed an allergy to mango. This happened well over a year ago (in late 2008 I think), and I’ve been mostly avoiding mango ever since. At some point in time, I started having strong […]

Tried Bikram Yoga

Monday, May 10th, 2010

I did my first Bikram (hot yoga) class today with Rachelle. She’s been asking me to try it for 4 months, so I finally decided to attend a class with her this morning to see what it was like. I’ve never done hot yoga before, so you could say my curiosity finally got the better […]

Raw Food Treats – Video

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Here’s a video that Lori Painter and I made recently, showing off some raw food creations we concocted for a raw potluck we attended in Vegas. Making this video was totally spontaneous, so we got a bit silly at times. Hope you enjoy it. I make the zucchini hummus differently each time. This time I blended in […]

Juicing and Physical Training

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

For most of the past year, I’ve been starting my day with a green smoothie for breakfast, but lately I’ve been getting back into juicing. I piled up a lot of experience in a short period of time when I did my 30-day juice feast a year ago. (I’d originally planned to go for a […]

Video Interview on Raw Foods, Social Support, and More

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Erin and I enjoyed another lovely visit from our raw foodist friends Matt Monarch and Angela Stokes-Monarch as they passed through Vegas yesterday before heading for Denver. At some point we decided to pull out our Flip cameras and do some interviews. Matt posted his interview with me today. We talked about some of my […]

Here’s a short video (less than 4 minutes) showing some daily practices that people who eat eggs are supporting: Realize that if you eat eggs, you’re actively and directly supporting practices like this. This video is actually pretty mild compared to what happens to the hens. What’s the difference between being the guy who tosses […]
