About Me

My photo
My life's purpose is best described by: Be the change you want to see in the world: Gandhi. Smiling is my "botox"-FORGET THE DRUGS AND SURGERY. I spice up my life, not my diet, which is SIMPLY DELICIOUS on its own. KISS: I Keep it simple sugars-from whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruits (veggies,some nuts/seeds too). The 811rv motto is: simplicity at mealtime, variety throughout the year. My motto is: I live in my own little world, but it's ok they all know me there. At some point, you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life.


Another one bites the dust...

Allergy that is.

I can now eat mangoes!

I started getting severe allergies several years ago-to the point of breaking out in hives, horrible itching, swelling and even respiratory problems-I went to the emergency room on several occasions because of them. I had several allergens, but one of them was to mangoes.

I've been 811rv for almost two years now-not perfectly because I still cave into a cooked vegan meal perhaps 3-4 times a month, nonetheless I have had incredible results.

Just recently, I was visiting Dr. Graham on his farm here in Costa Rica and I told him of my mango allergy. He encouraged me to try them again, but only very ripe, organic ones and to make sure not to eat too much or let them touch my lips for long.

I tried that and now I'm eating them regularly. My son says watching me eat one is like watching a two year old. I savor them with such glee.
