More Raw for Better Sex

Sex has always been one of my favorite things. For a moment let’s just put aside all the obvious; the aspect of release, the intimacy… any of those things. What about this? Sex is fun! As far as I’m concerned that’s even worth getting woken up for. Yet there’s 20% of the people out there that are hitting the sack…

Demons and Dehydration

I grew up with this whole idea drummed into me that you needed to consume eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day. It seemed like a daunting task, especially given the fact that I wasn’t big on water at the time and would much rather have had a Coke… or two… or ten… than anything that I basically deemed ‘tasteless’.…

What’s In a Name?

What the Hell is a Vegan?

When I first met my friend, Alisa, I had very little notion of what a raw food diet entailed. I guess if I had been forced to hazard a guess my ideas would have hovered around sushi and steak tartare; I was, honestly, clueless. Alisa changed all of that for me. She alone is responsible. For all of my sixteen years operating…

In Praise of Slowness

I love Raw Food. Its that simple. I’m not a vigilante, I’m not going to get on my soapbox and tell anyone that this is ‘The Way’: to eat Fruits and Vegetables and You Will be Saved. I’m not going to tell you that  even if it might be true. For me, it kind of is. And for you, it…
