Raw vegan, 80-10-10er here just doin' whatever I do. I want to help others transition into this lifestyle and become fit! Oh, and I'm 22. Pretty exciting.
planetary-traveler asked: you should make a vid on how to make the stuffed squash :3
Well, I just did sweet potato fries for now because that was basically all I had at my house XD Maybe I’ll do the stuffed squash next time!
Anonymous asked: why aren't you eating raw anymore? :) did you not feel your best?
Oh no I totally felt my best eating raw—hands down.
I am eating some cooked food again simply because it is more affordable to eat some potatoes and beans sometimes.
Also, I began working around the clock (doing multiple jobs during the day and a night job till 2am) so I legitimately wouldn’t have enough time throughout the day to smash the amount of fruit in that I would usually eat, which resulted in accidentally under eating (I even passed out about a month ago) So I finally decided to get out of that mind state of “I’m going to be 100% RAW all of the time” Because I was obviously beginning to hurt my health by having such a stigma towards cooked food.
Even though I did have more energy eating 100% raw and my athletic performance was better, I actually feel a bit more mentally balanced adding the cooked food back in now and I feel much more comfortable going to family gatherings and restaurants. I still eat mostly raw, but who cares? As long as it is plant-based, grain free, soy free, and there’s no weird chemicals it’s totally cool for me to consume. :) Hope that answers your question!
When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits - anything that kept me small.
My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

AGH IM SO UPSET
OMG SO I WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE AND PICKED UP THE FRESH GUACAMOLE THAT I USUALLY GET.
I ALWAYS READ THE LABEL EVEN THOUGH IT IS ALWAYS THE SAME, BUT THIS TIME I DIDN’T.
AND I ATE THE SMALL CONTAINERS WORTH AND THOUGHT IT TASTED DIFFERENT, BUT DIDN’T THINK IT WAS A BIG DEAL.
THERE WAS FUCKING BACON IN IT. I AM SO DAMN FURIOUS RIGHT NOW. I BURST INTO TEARS AND STARTED SCREAMING LIKE A MANIAC. DAMNIT DAMNIT DAMNIT. THERE WAS ALSO A SHIT TON OF PRESERVATIVES AND OTHER SHIT THAT HASN’T BEEN IN MY SYSTEM IN OVER A YEAR. WTF. WHY GROCERY STORE WHY. NOW MY STOMACH IS KILLING ME.
I AM SO SAD.
WHERE DO YOU GET YO PROTEIN?
So, I’ve been vegan for about 11 months now and I did a full metabolic blood test thing or whatever at my holistic doctor. Doing this test made me incredibly happy because everyone thinks I’m going to die from a protein deficiency, iron deficiency, be low in calcium, become anemic, or overdose on potassium from too many damn bananas. WELL YOU SILLY KIDS ARE WRONG!
The normal range for protein is 6.1-8.1 g/dL and mine is 7.4 BOOM
The normal range for calcium is 8.6-10.2 mg/dL and mine is 9.6 BOOM
The normal range for potassium is 3.5-5.3 mmol/L and mine is 4.5 BOOM
The normal range for iron is 7.0-16 and mine is 16 BOOM
Your Red Blood Cell Count should be around 3.8-5.1 and mine is 4.44 BOOM
Also my thyroid is working great, my cholesterol is fucking legit and the only thing off about my test is that my GLUCOSE LEVELS ARE ACTUALLY LOW FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO THINK I’M GIVING MYSELF HIGH BLOOD SUGAR FROM EATING TOO MUCH FRUIT. My glucose should be between 65-99 mg/dL, but mine is at 60 so it’s just a tad bit low and I will test again in a couple of months to see if it balances back out.
So calm down everyone, a vegan diet is rad and can provide the nutrients you need. Thank you.
