Raw Tacos at Zerbos!

Have I mentioned this yet? If not, I should because they are soo good!! :) :) Zerbo's is in Livonia, MI in case you aren't familiar with them.

I haven't been writing here too much, been very busy! I'm going to start volunteering a couple of days at a non-profit, and I've also taken on yet another sales job! I've been wanting to volunteer for years now, but always said when I get a 9-5 job, and I have a set schedule THEN I will do it. Well, no more excuses! This is the year I STOP making excuses and just DO.

And it feels good :) :)

Spotlight On: Life Smart Foods in Utica, Michigan

I was just recently told about Life Smart Foods in Utica. I have not been there because it's not really in my area, but judging from the website it looks really cool! They seem a lot like Zerbo's, and if anybody has read my blog, you know I LOVE Zerbo's :) I love stores that have sandwiches and smoothies too. Nothing like going shopping and being able to get something quick to eat that is HEALTHY :) If you are in the Utica area, or will be soon, here is their website:

Chiropractor in Canton, MI

Well, there is nothing I love more than giving a good company or product some free PR!

If you are looking for a Chiropractor in the Canton, Michigan area, you should check out Masters Chiropractic!

One of the things I really like about Chiropractors is they focus on all-over health-not just Chiropractic care. They know a lot about nutrition and exercising as well, which I think is very important to overall health.

Kevin and John at Masters Chiropractic are very knowledgeable and professional. The office was very clean, and neat. Kevin is also family to one of my friends I've known for years, so I know I can recommend him.

Q-Link Free Pendant Valentines Day offer!

Happy Valentines Day! I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful holiday, and that you show love each and EVERY day :)


I am buying myself a q-link pendant and getting the nimbus also!! I'm so excited! I keep saying, oh, when I have more money I'll get it! But that day never comes :P I am ALWAYS in front of a computer though, so I think the nimbus is something I should really get. I had the q-link necklace but lost it in customs in Italy. They were NOT very understanding when I wanted to go back and check lost and found. Ah well, the joys of traveling!

A reseller of q-link is offering a Valentines Day Special until February 20th where if you spend $100 or more, you get a free pendant :) So, I'm going to get the nimbus, and now I'll also get my necklace back! :) You know it's a verified reseller of Q-Link products because it has the seal at the bottom. You can find out more about Q-link and Nimbus at: Q-Link


When you put $100 worth of product in your shopping cart, it will ask you what color pendant you want.


Happy Valentines Day! I'm off to eat a cashew goji bar from Gnosis chocolate :)

Need a job change?

Michigan is doing a Green Job Initiative program. If you are looking for a career change, getting involved in environmental jobs would be an excellent start. It's an industry that is really taking off-and even better, the government wants to help you with your training!

Gnosis does it again!

Ok, I'm sooo over feeling sorry for myself and I'm back to eating raw foods again. Thank goodness this pathetic lil' pity party didn't last too long! I'm not sure what I'd do with out yoga, meditation, raw foods, and emotional freedom technique. The dating world out there is SCARY!


I'm so excited that Gnosis chocolate has a raw chocolate bar for Valentines Day! An Aphrodisiac chocolate bar, nonetheless! Now when you eat raw foods, you really don't need any help being amorous because you already feel soo good all of the time (even when everything around you falls apart), but this sure seems like fun anyways!

I'm thinking this chocolate bar will be a better alternative for me then my usual single on Valentines Day Routine of stuffing my face with ice cream...

:P

Broke down...

Yesterday I broke down and had...*gasp* taco bell. But you know what? I don't feel bad! I really love myself now, and I know that I will be ok after eating bad one time. I know I will be back to eating raw food again very soon. I'm just healing from someone VERY traumatic in my life. I would rather eat the taco bell if that is what it took to get me to stop that other negativity in my life. I will get through this...and I will get back to eating healthy soon. I still feel very strong-but I'm human. And that's ok...

Emotional Abuse

If you are with someone who constantly makes you feel bad, eventually you start believing them. No one is inherently all *good* or all *bad.* We all make mistakes. Please love yourself enough to not put up with feeling bad in a relationship. Find whatever strength you can, because no one deserves to feel that way. NO ONE. Here are some signs of abuse:

If you argue with him, he says you're stubborn.
If you're quiet, he argues with you anyway.
If you call him, he says you're needy and clingy.
If he calls you, he thinks you should be grateful.
If you don't act like you love him, he'll try to win you over.
If you tell him you love him, he takes advantage of you.
If you dress sexy, he says you're a slut.
If you don't dress nice, he says you look bad.
When you don't sleep with him, he says you don't love him.
If you do sleep with him, he only does it the way he likes it.
If you tell him your problems, he says you're bothering him,
If you don't, he says you don't trust him.
If you try to bring up a problem, he says you're bitching.
If he brings up a problem, he yells.
If you break a promise, you "can't be trusted".
If he breaks it, it's because "he had to".
If you cheat, he wants to punish you by locking you up or beating you.
If he cheats, he expects to be given another chance.

Day 19 Raw, and Chia Seeds

Wow, it's day 19 already! I feel AMAZING. I haven't lost anymore weight, but just losing the ten lbs. was great. I think if I can lose another ten I'd be really happy. 20 would be great, but I'm not going to push it just yet. I know this can take time! I'm excited to continue to see the benefits! It's funny how when you eat raw foods you have this ability to eliminate negative things out of your life. I'm slowly getting rid of the things that were weighing me down, and replacing them with happiness I didn't know was possible. I still have a lot of negative things in my life I need to change, but something is just different about me this year. I feel like I'm finally sick of just "getting by." This year WILL be different (God willing!). I have a renewed sense of optimism and I'm remembering who I am. I used to be a very motivated and ambitious person, not content with failure. I feel like I'm getting that back, and it's a welcome relief! I will not lose this part of me again, no matter what! I have not eaten raw EVERY day, but my appetite has gone down and I find when I eat regular foods it's not a lot. I have a lot more balance in what I eat now, and I don't overeat either. That is an amazing feeling.

I also wanted to add my mom discovered Chia seeds, and I'm so thrilled about that! They seem really cool. Google search the benefits of Chia seeds, there are just too many to list here! And no, it's not that they make delightfully tacky plant pets-although Chia seeds can do that also! :)

I'm also in the works of changing my career, and managed to manifest (not to sound too new-agey or anything) a really interesting opportunity that I think I might actually like. I've always been fascinated with the freedom of sales, and many times have thought I found a product I believe in but often become disillusioned by it, or the people I have to work with.

This seems different though, and I hope I'm right!

If you have a healthy living business, whether it's a chiropractic business, massage therapy, health food store, etc. please email me at michiganrawfood@yahoo.com

I have been advertising with this magazine and have had great results, and I would love to help you with your business as well!

Day 14 raw

Soo I haven't updated in awhile. It was a really busy weekend, and I wasn't able to eat really good or exericse. Although, I did get a little exercise actually, now that I think about it! :P I didn't eat raw food yesterday because I went out to eat, but what can you do? I wasn't going to starve myself. I am getting a little sick of eating the same things every day at the restaurants I go to. I need to figure out how to do this myself, but so far eating at raw food restaurants is working for me as far as sticking to eating healthier, so I'm going to keep doing what is working. I am now down about 10 lbs, and I have so much energy. After eating "regular" food, I had less energy, and felt kind of tired. I have to say also that my appetite is less now. I don't need to eat all the time. I eat to live, not the other way around! When I ate processed foods all the time, I felt like I was always hungry. I don't have that problem anymore. I haven't done yoga or meditation for a few days, and no vitamin D12. I really notice a difference in my mood. It's not that I feel unhappy, but I just don't feel as excited about life or have as much energy. I can't wait to do some yoga tonight and get back into feeling really good!
