Here’s my story, in the video below, on why I became a vegetarian.
I have another blog called Baby Steps to Better Me, and this post accidentally ended up here on Raw Jenni. But it does give a good update and includes some healthy things that apply here as well. So I will leave it to update my Raw Jenni followers🙂
This isn’t really a “baby” step, as it ended up for me, being a VERY GIANT LEAP!
Sometimes the only way to improve health, is stepping out and away from what you know. Getting far enough away to re-evaluate everything. Suddenly, everything becomes more and more clear. Hindrances to your health and life, mind, body, and soul, become more clear, and you can start to become more yourself again. Especially, if you were losing sight of who you were and are.
I stepped away from my current world, for a few months, to regain this perspective.
I originally thought there was only one reason to step away, but really, there were so many reasons. More than I could have expected!
This journey isn’t over. I’m still in a state of flux. But clarity and hope is returning, and strength builds up each day.
I found out in this time, who could care and be a friend to me, in the hardest season (so far) of my life. Who could “put up with” some crazy thinking and talking, and emoting, while I kept it real and honest! To those friends and family members, I say, “Your strength and character have proven themselves to me.” I am forever grateful to you, your love, grace, and strength!

As of this last week, my husband has been eating vegan, and my daughter has been raw until dinner!
It’s pretty exciting to see changes happening.
I haven’t pushed or preached. When they have asked questions or complained about ailments, I sometimes mentioned things I’ve read, or shared my experiences. But I’ve waited for them to be ready.
I’ve gone about my own healthy improvements, and let them live their own lives and make their own choices.
And now! Voila! Great things are happening!
They know what health improvements I’ve been seeing:
~ Constipation and digestive problems (heartburn, acid reflux, bloat, gas, etc.)
~ Dry skin
~ Hormones evening out
~ Teeth sensitivities
~ Weight loss
~ No longer burn in the sun
~ No longer get mosquito bites (alkaline instead of acid body now)
…and probably more that I’m forgetting right now!
And they have each joined in, in their own ways! It’s super exciting to watch and enjoy! Yay for the fruity family! Yay for our health and life and vitality!

❄ Frozen bananas, blended in Vitamix (or other powerful blender)

❄ Couple of blueberries to sprinkle on top
Blend separately and layer for a gorgeous effect!
Mango and Strawberry Dressings (on the left):
❄ Blend 1 – 2 mangos (or frozen) with 3 Tbsp of coconut sugar and use as a dressing
❄ Blend frozen strawberries with the juice with 3 Tbsp of coconut sugar and use as dressing
Tastes delicious criss-crossing the two on a salad for special occasions!
