That was one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. She's anti-gluten ("gluten is the devil"), anti-soy, and lacked iodine? I was happier before I knew who she was. The nutritional advice on her site is ...something else.

I just woke up hyperventilating because in my dream, Fred had just accidentally let it slip that he'd been cheating on me. Thankfully, I woke up from it pretty quickly, but that feeling of having your world crash down around you forking sucks.

I don't want to link to it because I'm terrified of a KFischer, but have a search for Kristens Raw.

I know. It doesn't even annoy me like some of the others, because it's almost funny.

Good bloody grief! Nearly everything she complained about is mostly to do with the fact her body was going through an extremely stressful period. Growing a baby and the whole post pregnancy recovery isn't easy! I know of plenty of omnivores that have had major dental issues (teeth turning black &falling out). And out of it all not one specific "problem" that was related to being a vegan.

Ugh. That was painful. So they've stopped eating beans and grains..... So he's just fallen for the paleo mind washing.

She says "there's problems with grains" - if you look into any food at all there will be some sort of study that says it contains or causes something bad or doesn't have enough of something good.

I want to wash my eyes out. I couldn't even finish reading. I hate hate hate that she is preying on parents' fears for the health of their children.

Everyone told me that when you turn 40, you start having more health issues, and I really didn't believe them. Until I turned 40. You lose a pound of muscle every year after 40. And for me, that has meant my joints have less muscle mass assisting them, so I've had a lot more joint pain.

Either that or its my 7 years of veganism....

My back was messed up before veganism so I'm grand on that.

My hair is like a nest today though. I bet that is because of being a vegan.

I'm so happy my health problems came on when I was a total omni.

Thanks for sharing what to google. Never heard of her. Read "dreaming of eggs" and stopped. Ok, you wanted eggs. Now shut the fork up.

ETA: And mid 30's and had a kid? Of course your butt is saggy.

You really, really don't! I swear it feels like every month a new bit of me starts to fall apart. I hit fifty in October - I dread to think what the next decade holds.

NOOO. I hate blog posts like that! No matter how much I tell myself they're ridiculous, I feel like I'm going to shatter into a pile of anemic bone dust or something.

Okay, so I posted this before and redacted it, but I changed my mind and decided to post it again.

If you look back through her blog (you know, for punishment?), you will find that she posted her raw vegan food diaries. And it really seems to me that she was probably not eating enough food, especially for an active woman (as she claims to be). Someone keeping up with a young child AND exercising needs to consume, you know, CALORIES. Probably more than she was getting from "longevity chia porridge" and savory green juice and carrot soup.

I'm not a nutritionist but this seems pretty obvious to me. Of course she lacked the "nutrients" she whined about if she was starving herself.

I don't want to be mean, so I'll stop. But yeah, this is super annoying. Crash and burn if you must, but why do you have to do it with so much fanfare?

I totally hate St. Patricks' Day for it brings all the annoying, decidedly NON-Irish, NON-Catholic, college frat kids out of the woodwork and into the streets, drunk. Last year, a mob burned a bunch of cop cars and looted and rioted. This year, well, I got to see my very own mob fight! Our apartment over looks some balconies/fire escapes from the apartment building next door. We heard a bunch of screaming, so we rushed to the windows, to see a huge fight breaking out between about 10-12 people. Some woman was screaming, "Get out of here, you're not a friend!" And then a man in a green shirt lunged at her, and then the whole thing erupted into fists and kicking and screaming. The landlord for that apartment building went up to go break it up, and he got attacked; there were about 8 people trying to fight him and THROW HIM OFF THE BALCONY. I called 911, while T. went outside to go see if he could get a better view of what was happening. When the fight eventually broke up after someone got thrown down the stairs from the balcony, some guy covered in blood tried to fight T. because he thought T. was going to call the police. The poor landlord is pretty beat up. There's blood everywhere.

In conclusion: St. Patrick's Day is the forking worst here, and I hate it.
