  • As clearly shown in the pictures, my raw food transformation isn’t a fad diet. I look just as good at 50 years of age as I did when I was 40, proving my raw food approach not only works, but is sustainable.

Is A Raw Vegan Diet Sustainable?

They say, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” so I thought I produce a collage of images, showing my transformation; before going into a raw food diet (age 39), a year later (age 40), and ten years later subsequently (age 50).

I believe it will only take a short few months for most people to […]

What I’ve Learned After 10 Years on a Raw Vegan Diet (Part 1)

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been already 10 years since I started on the natural health/raw food path!

In all honesty, I was not thinking about me or my health when I decided to go in this direction.

It was never my goal to try to live forever.

By the time I was 37 years of age, […]

How to Eat Carbs and Lose Weight

If there’s a trend that drives me mad, it is the obsession of avoiding “carbs.”

When I hear someone saying: “Oh, I don’t do fruit because they’re full of sugar,” I feel sad.

Why… Heavens, why, are we so AFRAID of “carbs?”

When I decided to go on a raw food, plant based diet; I lost 17 kilos […]

How to Make the Perfect Salad WITHOUT A Recipe

I don’t often rely on recipes to make my salads.

I find it much simpler to take whatever ingredients I have on hand and combine them using the 5 flavours guide.

I do eat large green salads most evenings though; I combine them with most dinner meals, such as a raw burger, tortilla, wraps and rolls, etc.

The […]

How Important is a Varied Raw Food Diet

Should we eat a wide range of raw foods to ensure that we’re getting the right nutrition?

This question has always puzzled me and I could never find a good answer.

When winter comes along, it’s not unusual for me to eat large quantities of oranges and other citrus. After all, it is the time of year […]

Can’t Afford To Eat Fully Raw?

I saw this comment posted on social media the other day and thought it was interesting:

“Have you guys notice that Youtubers and bloggers who talk about raw food vegan diets usually live in tropics? Or somewhere damn warm? Where fruit and veg grows all year and all kinds of superfoods are there commonly available for […]

YouTube’s On Going Vegan Soap Opera – A Waste of Your Time?

Autumn sees yet another YouTube vegan/raw food drama-fest. Even as a newcomer, I can see the absurdity of constantly reacting to each others’ videos.

One of my readers, Jess, sent me an email asking:

“Hi Ariel,

Have you responded to all of the raw vegan YouTube channels that have come forward recently stating that the raw diet ruined […]

How Long After Starting a Raw Vegan Diet Do You See Results?

A common question I hear is: how long does it take to start feeling the results after going on a raw vegan diet?

To start with, every person is different in terms of the amount of toxicity they have accumulated over the years; they need to get rid of when they change their diet, especially to […]

Teenager ‘Blind’ From Living off Crisps and Chips

If anyone has doubts about the power and dangers of nutrition, they need only to read the story of a teenager in the UK, who developed permanent sight loss after living on a diet of junk food.

The adolescent, who cannot be named, went to see his doctor at the age of 14, because he had […]

The Brexit No One’s Talks About

Do you know why literally no one talked about Brexit 5 years ago?

No one was bothered about the UK membership of the EU back then, there were no marches, no protests against it, no riots, no strikes, NADA!

So, why then all the sudden, did Brexit become such a big issue? So big in fact, it […]

What I Eat In A Day (On A Raw Vegan Diet) – Day 2

I am currently spending time in the southern hemisphere and going through winter, which is the perfect time to take advantage of citrus.

Head to your local grocery store during winter and you will find an abundance of mandarins, grapefruits, clementines, and oranges.

I’d switch between eating different kinds of citrus during this time of the year, […]

Suffering From Inflammation?

Chronic inflammation is a long-term, low-grade condition that persists in your cells and tissues, and plays a key role in many health problems.

In fact, inflammation is involved in 8 of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States—heart disease, cancer, chronic lower-respiratory diseases, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, pneumonia/influenza, and kidney disease, among other […]
