Hallelujah for raw foods, Raw pets, Skin care...

Breakfast- 1 large sliced tomato and 1 large cucumber sliced and mixed with mock peanut sauce, 1/3 lb mock mashed potatoes, 1/2 raw falafel

Lunch- 1/2 large watermelon

Dinner- At Raw Soul: Ginger beer(rejuvelac), Butternut squash soup, Tamale pie, Pizza(without onions), 2 plates fresh celery sticks 

Well, this was the last of the mock peanut sauce and I miss it already!

What a relief to read that the raw diet doesn't have to be complex or expensive.  Doug Polk, speaking to Gwenda Anthony of the Jackson Sun, says "It's also fast in the sense that it can take minimal preparation," he said, "like cleaning and washing your food.  " You also can use machines such as juicers, water distillers, bread machines, food processors. But the machines are not necessary," he said. "Preparation can be as simple, or as expensive, as you want it to be."  According to Anthony, Polk, an advocate and teacher of the Hallelujah Diet has witnessed great results.  "I am 62, and I feel better then I have in 40 years," Polk said, adding, "My wife, who is 52, suffered for years with fibromyalgia, but her symptoms disappeared after being on the diet for only three and a half months."

Another relief is to read Veterinarian Shawn Messonnier affirm the raw food diet for pets.  He suggests that if a pet owner's veterinarian is not supportive, then the owner should find a new Vet!

From last night's meeting of the Raw Health and Happiness Society, the topic was skin care: "I don't put anything on my skin that I wouldn't eat!"  Also, importantly, "The most important care of the skin is good living habits.  Healthy skin depends primarily upon the internal state of the body.  Any habit of life that lowers the general health must lessen skin health, hence detract from the freshness and bloom of normal skin.The Science & Fine Art of Natural Hygiene (Shelton, Herbert M.
