I love eating raw meat.  It feels like eating a form of sushi with the texture of raw tuna. It’s a colorful, flavorful, and fresh dinner that practically digest itself with the live enzymes still intact. Yes, raw meat has enzymes just like any other raw food you eat. I also notice the amount of meat […]

Got Raw Milk?

Why do I eat raw meat?

I haven’t worn deodorant in 15 years!

deodorant is toxic

I swear I’m not a hippy! haha 15 years ago it made no sense to me to shave my armpits and then rub a thick white paste over the freshly shaved, sensitive, and opened skin, and it still doesn’t. Skin is one of our major detox organs.  It needs to breathe so it can do […]
