After a few days of second guessing myself, feeling vulnerable, and just generally being silly, I have decided to share my other blog, An Apple A Day. It documents my personal challenge to go 30 days on all raw and living foods. This is the first time in three years that I haven't been pregnant or nursing (knock on wood), and I am ready to be really proactive about losing this baby weight.
I guess I was hesitant to make it public because it feels a lot more personal than this blog does. I mean, this one is personal, but in a more abstract way. My food blog talks about my weight, my issues with food, and **gulp** "before" pictures of me in a bathing suit (consider yourself warned).
But, I have decided to share it now because there are several readers of this blog who's input I would really appreciate. Some of you eat raw, have eaten raw, are thinking about eating raw, etc. and I would really like to hear what you have to say. Plus, I did share my food blog with several friends a day or two ago, and have been so encouraged by the kind words I have received from them.
So, there you have it. It is what it is.


  1. Yay Laurel, that's awesome.
    I can't wait to check it out.
    I always love your posts, and get excited when I see you on bloglines.
    So I'll be reading!!

    I thought by now you would know where babies come from, and it's not from knocking on wood! Mom

  3. Well, I'd say that's taking the bull by the horns! Good for you! I will let you in on a secret... Jeff and I have been doing green smoothies for a couple weeks now (on and off because of his crazy schedule). We're working on it. Thanks for the idea and encouragement!

  4. Oh, this will be great! I'll go have a look in a second. I just got a new raw book yesterday, Laurel, and I think it might be my favorite. It's Everyday Raw by Matthew Kenney. I've already made a couple things from it! :-) My daughter and I have been eating almost all-raw since last weekend.


  5. That's awesome! I don't know if I could go completely raw myself, but we have cut out all sugar and all flour from our diet (thanks to the nasty naturopath!) So I eat quite a few similar foods, but just with a 'few' extras! (long live steak!) I'll definitely keep an eye on your other blog to get some more ideas and inspiration!

  6. I've been enjoying reading both of your blogs lately, my sweet friend :) Thanks so much for being's very inspiring for others. Keep at it! xxoo
