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.

Advice when flying for long hours

I just did a 15 hour flight, with a stopover in Frankfurt. The total travel time with waiting at the airport and finally getting to our hostel was 21 hours. I only ate 2 clementines that whole time and I drank lots of water. I hardly slept either. I'm traveling with 3 others who ate, one mostly raw (my son), the other two(my Dad and nephew) ate the plane food. I'm the only one of the gang that felt great after the flight. I was able to walk for another 3 hours to sightsee and do some food shopping for the gang. Everyone else conked out and two even have a "cold"(my Dad and nephew). Eating lightly or not at all and keeping well hydrated are the secrets to a successful flight. The flight is already stressful enough without the body having to deal with food/frankenfood digestion as well.

you mentioned that you hardly slept at all during the flight-was that intentional? i will be flying soon and plan on eating very, very lightly or maybe fasting! thanks for the info :)

Hi D,

I wish I could sleep more on flights, but I'm too uncomfortable. Good luck with your flight:)
