vitamin B12 deficiency

I’ve said before that I really want to stay away from too much ‘health education’ stuff in relation to being a raw vegan and I will, but found a loophole when I figured that a little ditty about my B12 deficiency is more experiential… Continue Reading “vitamin B12 deficiency”

whole foods plant-based diet good, but not as good as raw…

I haven’t been a very good raw foodie since I saw Forks over Knives the weekend before last… A combination of feeling good about the health benefits of a whole food plant based diet and the eight straight days of Boston rain resulted in me… Continue Reading “whole foods plant-based diet good, but not as good as raw…”

raw vegan vs. whole food plant based diets

vegan whims and raw food craziness

I’m good at whims. Small whims, large whims… in fact, I can be downright whimsical. And not in a flighty way either, but in a weighty way, one in which I end up changing jobs, and countries (from Australia, to England, to America), and… Continue Reading “vegan whims and raw food craziness”
