Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
(Swedish proverb)
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
(Sicilian proverb)
Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
(Elbert Hubbard)
You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.

I admit I feel a little embarassed about the existence of this website. I mean, who talks about food for nearly 7 years! When I read my front page transitional story now, I feel uneasy about all that excitement of a person (myself) who just discovered a way of being healthy. Yep, it does sound so naive and over the top (I am blushing here). There is one thing that keeps me going though, despite all the embarassement. Me wanting to share, just in case it helps someone. Even if one person benefits from it, all the work has been worth it!

I like to question things, and even now, after all these years, I do have times that I question this lifestyle, of course I do! In the end it boils down to the fact that my body simply does not seem to tolerate any other food than raw. Any experiments with other foods always end in the same result. So my conclusion is that I have no other choice but listen to my body. And so I am here again, sharing with you my thoughts on this one particular topic  of diet and health, even though my life is pretty busy with all the various projects and pursuits in completely different aspects of my life.

Oh, and since we are talking about food, I would like to mention how absolutely delicious navel oranges recently have been. I developed quite a taste for them recently, cutting them in 8, so sweet and juicy, and satisfying. Julia too commented on how delicious they are, I put half an orange in her lunchbox the other day, and today she asked for some in the morning. Piles of rockmelons are on my kitchen benchtop and I am slighlty worried than my sudden desire for the oranges might mean they are going to get forgotten ha ha!
