Why I Keep Returning to Raw (part 1)

Because it's what really WORKS for me, that's why, silly!

Something curious happened last weekend. I was at the 100th birthday party of my long-time friend's mother, Mary Bolton Eckles. About 150 of us had descended upon a Mexican restaurant and basically had our own wing of mayhem there. My son and I sat at one end of a long table across from a couple people I often see as sort of extended family at times like Christmas. Celia said, "I know someone that went on raw diet, but it didn't take and she quit." I looked at her feeling stunned. I wasn't sure why. I said nothing. I was having my own little battle with slipping on raw at that very moment as all around me were eating chips and green and red salsas while I was impatiently waiting for the waiter to come take out order. (I was going to get the Deluxe Salad, hold the meat and cheese, and dip some of the lettuce into that scrummy-looking salsa first chance I got!)

Later I have remembered her comment more than a few times. It spoke volumes to me. In the far away past such a comment would have made me feel discouraged, like, "Oh, I know. It's so hard to stay raw!!" But today it had a different effect on me, because -- HURRAY!!! -- today I AM a different person. Today the effect it had on me was, "Wow. I'm not the only one who has had a hard time getting and staying raw. I want to help them as much as I want to help me!" Not only that. It made me realize that raw is really TOUCHING the mainstream in a big way. A lot of people don't see it yet, but I've been watching sense raw diet barely had a PULSE in American life. And I'm here to tell you, it's growing -- and it's growing BIG and it's growing FAST. HURRAH!!!!!

It's been a long, long journey for me, this Raw Life. Slips and falls, I have had more than a few. I guess that is one of the reasons I want to share my experiences so much -- because I know that I can't be the only one who slips and falls, but I'm here to tell you it's WORTH IT to keep back on the raw again -- and as many times as it takes, even if it's to my dying day!

Things have changed a LOT since I first went raw, in a serious way, in late 1990 I think it was. (I had dabbled with it since 1985 but never took it on as a lifestyle until 1990.) Back then a long SEARCH could find me only two people who were on raw or high-raw diet in the Austin area. They were T.C. Fry (now deceased, and he lived south of Austin) and Yemiah (now the wife of David Favor).

Before that I had found ONE person on 100% organic raw diet when I lived in Boulder, Colorado -- and that was pure luck and kismet, because his raw eating lifestyle was a SECRET. Yep!! It was considered SO strange and threatening to some people at that time that he didn't even want other people to KNOW he was eating raw!! His name was Andy Hoart. I had read most of the books that had been out about raw eating at that time (which were very few compared to today) and something he said caused me to ask the right question at the right time and he admitted to me his secret raw life. He too is now deceased. It is a sad story. I believe he was denying himself certain foods he really needed and this is probably much of what led him to his depression and suicide. For example he refused to eat ANY sea vegetables or ANY greens, certain that they were not for human consumption. Such can be the dangers of living a pioneering life and being perhaps a tad too hardheaded!! By the time he passed away he did not even remember me from when I first knew him -- but I will always remember him fondly because he was a great inspiration in how he overcame a crippling disease with raw diet -- even though he didn't have a clear blueprint and against all odds. Even back then, when I first met him, he admittedly overate -- and it was ASTOUNDING to me that this man was eating 20 ears of organic corn and 8 avocados DAILY (among other things) and still managed to have a trim figure, enormous energy and hold down three jobs.

I want to write more, but I have a LOT to say and have to get to my income-earning work so will close for now and put in another installment soon.

Meanwhile, thanks for reading, and here's wishing YOU

The Best Day EVER...!!!!
