5 Days in Boston

5 Days in Boston

(se nedan för svenska) So, I’ve been traveling a bit lately and not updating (mostly because the food I’ve been eating has been anything but inspiring).

Where I run

Where I run

(se nedan för svenska) I love going to the gym and taking classes — the high energy, the music, the people, it’s amazing. But now during the summer I feel that it’s a shame to go inside for workouts. These are some of the places that I have ran recently: a beach in San Diego...
Sweet Summer Snack

Sweet Summer Snack

(se nedan för svenska) It’s getting really hot here in Ojai, and in the middle of those sweltering summer days, don’t we all just crave a sweet frozen treat? I do, at least, and frozen berries are my favorite thing. They’re a great alternative to ice cream (which has a lot of unnecessary sugar and...

Stay Away From Nutrient-zapping Microwaves

(Se nedan för svenska) Even though this is primarily a blog devoted to the joys of eating raw, most of us do eat cooked food in one form or another at times. This is totally fine, being 100% raw is not for everyone, and many of us do benefit from including some cooked food into...

Mercury-free Smile

Minty Greens

Minty Greens

(Se nedan för svenska) So I’m in Sweden again and I always like discovering new products in the grocery store.

Coffee? Good or Bad?

Coffee? Good or Bad?

(Se nedan för svenska) That morning cup of coffee may be causing more harm than you know. Sure, one cup every now and then is fine, but you should be aware of what happens in your body when you drink coffee. Too much can contribute to everything from heart problems, stomach problems and hypertension to...

Juice Fast/Detox Recipes

(svenska nedan) As I mentioned last week, I’m doing a five-day detox cleanse right now. It’s a great way to not only loose some unwanted weight you may have accumulated for various reasons, but also to give your body a tune-up and ensure that it works optimally. Many of you asked for my juice fast...

The Secret to Making Great Guacamole

The Secret to Making Great Guacamole

(Se nedan för Svenska) I’ve been asked a few times lately what my secret to make such good guacamole is, and I’m not quite sure, but I have a pretty good idea. First off, you need to make sure you start with ripe Organic avocados, otherwise your guac is never going to make it from...
