Thank you for the article - it is very inspiring and as the light gets a little stronger promising that spring WILL come again, it is wonderful to read at this time. I made Jackie's soup the other day and my husband and I are TOTALLY enjoying it, a small bowl before every meal, my husband even eats it for breakfast. I am making some smoothies and have been wondering what I can add to boost the nutrition to both smoothies and soup that won't affect the flavor too much. Thanks, I will try your suggestions.

Really great article! I feel so motivated now and really positive about sticking to my healthy new diet! thank you!

cool. I love all the smoothie ideas. Ive been eating them pretty much everyday for several months and nothing starts my day off feeling more balanced and energized. But I found out pretty quickly that I have to drink a HUGE one (@20 oz.s) in order to get enough cals. to take me through to lunch w/o snacking. But I also use more greens/veggies in mine than fruits and no milk so that might account for the lower cals in mine.

Thank you for the article, Isaac!

It is right on track for me because I am on Module 4 of the Point of No Return program and the "pillar" I felt like I most needed to work on is the one about eating more nutrient rich foods. I am working on adding fruit smoothies and raw carrot juice into my diet. My teenage son helps me because he asks me to make these foods for him.

Another great source of raw, fresh food is blended salads. Dr. Joel Fuhrman (recommended by Joshua and Jackie) encourages everyone to enjoy this unique and healthful way of eating your salad.

I make mine with 1 small clove of fresh garlic, 1 green onion or a few pieces of regular onion, 1 large tomato, and half a peeled cucumber. This is the base. I blend these up till the garlic is well-minced and can't be seen in the mixture.

Then I add 1/3 cup water, 2-3 tablespoons Italian dressing, 4 or 5 leaves of leafy lettuce, 2 or 3 handfuls of spinach, and a leaf of kale. I blend these up till the mixture is fairly smooth. For a smoother texture and healthy fat, I like to put in 1/2 to 1 whole avocado depending on the size. It's quite tasty! Sometimes I add other things such as spirulina or ground flaxseed.

This recipe makes about 3 cups and once you get the hang of it, it only takes a few minutes to make. This salad is about as nutrient dense as you can get!

To your health!

Just made a shopping list for those smoothies....thanks for sharing. Feeling better and healthier is priceless.

Reading this article is so timely and relevant for me. Just this morning on the train ride into work, I was thinking to myself that I needed to do some research on the things I could incorporate into my diet to help me have a natural boost in my energy levels. And it just so happens that I live down the street from a raw foods restaurant that I've been meaning to give a try. What an inspirational article! I couldn't agree more with the authors perspective on living every day like it's the best day you've ever had. Optimism is contagious, as are big toothy genuine smiles. Pay it forward! Even in this subtle way, when being mindful of the positive image you project, you're bringing joy into the lives of others.

That was wonderful, Isaac! I've made many, many changes in the past 7.5 months, and have lost a lot of weight, but I still found many inspiring things to ponder in all that advice. Thanks a million!

What a great article. I have been in that state before in my life. I remember how good it feels. I just can't seem to sustain it for long periods of time. I am trying to get back to it now and this article is very motivational. I am 48 and I don't want to be exhausted anymore. I know that my work schedule and stress levels have a lot to do with my fatigue but I also know that I have been in the same place where I can bounce out of bed in the morning full of vitality no matter how hard I am working. Thanks for helping me remember that.
