- Why discipline doesn't work
Excerpt: Occasionally we get desires to do things that we intellectually don't want to do. When it comes to food, these desires show up as cravings. Often these cravings are for foods that aren't usually the healthiest. Most of us have been taught that discipline is a great way to "combat" these cravings.
- Raw-Food is not "it"
Excerpt: One of the challenges that many rawfoodist go through is holding on to the belief that raw-food is "it". Raw-food is not "it".
- Not Perfect, Just Real! (Sarma's debut)
Excerpt: This is my first blog post ... ever. What to write about? Writing a whole book somehow felt less daunting, though when it was finally published I could not believe that all those words, written during delirious late nights in front of the computer, were out there in print, and that anyone would even care. The most heartwarming part is that it seems people do, hence this blog.
- That's funny, you don't look healthy?
Excerpt: When David Wolfe was a young'n, who was just starting to scratch the surface of real health, there were a lot of authors and self-proclaimed experts who were ready to throw in their two cents on what worked and what didn't. With all the chatter in the air, it was hard to decipher from what was real and what was agenda based. So David, being the smart raw-cookie that he is, came up with a little trick.
- Good Nutrition Is All About Balance, Or Not
Excerpt: Being a rawfoodie, I get asked this question all the time, "But what about balance?" To have balance you must have a scale of reference. For most people that nutritional scale is anything that some company or government says is "safe" to put in one's mouth. So on one end of the scale they have Iceberg lettuce and on the other end they have Skittles. This naturally makes the middle ground, aka the area of balance, look like the Standard America Diet of meat & potatoes.
