How to Make a Raw Fruit Pie

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Since December 2008 I’ve been attending monthly raw potlucks here in Las Vegas. Erin and I hosted one at our house a few months ago, and we’ll be hosting another one in August. Typically 20-25 people will attend (I’ve seen as many as 35), so these potlucks are a nice way to meet local raw […]

Raw Food Diet Update

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

I’ve been eating 100% raw foods for most of the past year, and many people have been asking for any update on my raw food diet experience. Here’s some info on how I’m eating these days. First off, I’m still 100% raw, and I absolutely love this diet. It’s hard for me to imagine ever […]

Remote Diagnosis Disorder

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Remote Diagnosis Disorder (RDD) is my new addition to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. People afflicted with this personality disorder suffer from an uncontrollable urge to diagnose individuals as suffering from one or more psychological disorders, specifically individuals which the RDD sufferer has had little or no direct personal interaction with. RDD […]

Post Juice Feasting Update

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

It’s been about 3-1/2 weeks since I ended my 30-day juice feast, so here’s an update on my health situation. Sleep and Dreams I’m back to sleeping normally again. During the juice feast I needed 8-10 hours of sleep most nights. Now I do fine on 6-7 hours. The super-vivid nighttime dreams continued for another […]

Guacamole Recipe

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Guacamole is one of my favorite foods, so I’d like to share my best guacamole recipe. I tweak this recipe every time I make it, so this is the December 2008 incarnation. I went to my first raw potluck last night and brought a large batch of this guacamole to share. I figured there would […]

Calibration

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

In personal development terms, calibration is the process of progressively refining your thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors until you shift your equilibrium to the point where you can consistently achieve the results you desire. Just as you might calibrate a scientific instrument to provide consistently accurate measurements, you can calibrate your skills to generate consistently good […]

Juice Feasting – Postmortem

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Now that I’ve been back on solid foods for about a week, I have some final thoughts to share on my 30-day juice feast. I don’t want to rehash what I already shared in my Day 31 update, so I’ll try to offer some new insights. Back to Solids – and Eating More Fat Again […]

Juice Feasting – Day 31

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I’m feeling pretty lousy this morning. Last night I began feeling nauseous around 8pm, and I went to bed at 9:30. I woke up this morning feeling like I was getting a cold. I had a runny nose, a mild headache, some fatigue, and I was sneezing a bit. I slept about 9 hours last […]

Juice Feasting – Day 26

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

The past couple days have been interesting to say the least. After my spa day on Monday, I felt more relaxed, but I still felt pretty aggressive. I woke up Tuesday morning feeling hostile and belligerent. Later in the day, the anger went away, and I was left with this incredible feeling of power and […]

Juice Feasting – Day 24

Monday, November 17th, 2008

Last night I went through some pretty severe emotional detox. I started feeling incredibly angry, and I had to warn my family to steer clear of me. I wished I was still training in martial arts just so I could pummel something. I listened to a Paraliminal before bed, and that helped — it relaxed […]
