I'm moving home!



Well, as I alluded to in my earlier video message, I have hit a wall, financially and otherwise. Last night I was crying and feeling like something was terribly wrong, like I was out of place in the world. Then, I knew I had to move back home with my mom in Houston, at least for a while. I called my mom, and she was completely happy for me to come back home. She actually has just been diagnosed with borderline osteoperosis and is not doing too well physically; she is also eating poorly because she doesn't have any energy to cook for herself and is trying to do a vegan diet without any help (I got her onto being vegan a couple months ago, which was a blessing b/c her cholesterol dropped from 210 to 160!). I'm going to try to help her eat more raw and help her out around the house as well. I know the raw food scene is less developed in Houston than in Chicago, but maybe that will be a good thing. Maybe I can be of service there. Beyond that, who knows what I'll do. Right now I'm trying to sell my stuff, pack my car, and hit the road in a couple days to be home by Thanksgiving. I'm just happy to know that this community will be here, no matter where I go. I'll keep you posted! Wish me a safe trip!

you're wise to listen to your instincts and trust that the universe has a perfect plan for you. . . no matter what! when i was working for alissa cohen, i believe we trained some people in the houston area (very excited about raw food, etc.) so try googling raw food in houston- if you haven't already!- and you may come up with some great people to network with. Best of luck, and we can't wait to hear how your journey goes. . .

Safe journeys always! Come to NY as soon as you get a chance...AND...you are escaping those lovely Chicago winters...be grateful for that at least.

You know it will all work out, and if there isnt a raw scene, you'll just have to create it!

Good luck always Rachel...
