How I lost 30 pounds in 30 days with no added exercise and how you can get the same result!
Hi, my name is Raederle Phoenix. Yep, that's my real name, given at birth by my parents. Raederle is pronounced "Ray-der-lee" if you're curious.
I'd like to share with you just a very small part of my life story that will take you about twenty seconds to read.
Seven years ago I was overweight, depressed, chronically fatigued, sick of life, friendless, pessimistic, and fearful. I had stomach ulcers, constant headaches, daily acid reflux and constant burps that caught in my chest and sent fire through my heart and lungs. I didn't know at the time that I had ulcers, all the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and candida. I didn't know that my fear of social situations and sudden states of agitation were called "anxiety attacks."
I felt hopeless. I had tried the advice and medications from several doctors. I felt like I was up against a wall. I was in an abusive relationship and some part of me felt I deserved the abuse. I didn't believe that I could or should get better. I didn't respect myself, I didn't love myself, and I couldn't forgive myself for being so flawed and useless. I was suicidal.
After years of trial and error, lectures, books, seminars, classes, articles, potlucks, interviews, letters and documentaries... I've found healing and truth. I am now in a healthy marriage based on respect, compassion and mutual interests. I've found the ability to forgive myself, to love myself, to feel compassion for others and to have an optimistic outlook on life.
Where I used to be fatigued, now I am vibrantly alive. Just a few years ago I could hardly walk a quarter-mile; now I can walk all day long.
As a huge bonus, I lost thirty pounds.
Every single aspect of my life is changed for the better, and some aspects of my life are entirely different. I've never been happier, and I no longer cling to any feeling that I deserve less.
Let me share a big secret with you: You don't deserve any less than what I have now.
You deserve success, love, happiness and health.
And here is the biggest secret of all: Pathways to everything you desire in life start with food.
If you're new to the concept, that may sound crazy, but it really is true. You are what you eat. You need to eat foods that create a hormonal balance that supports happiness in order to be happy; you need to be happy to have success in your life. It really is that simple.
Is the science simple? No.
However, the meal plans I want to share with you are simple, and if you follow them it will change your life.
Let me share with you how to discover the new vibrant you through exciting recipes! Pretty please?
While the results of my transition have been beautiful, the transition wasn't smooth. I made a lot of mistakes along the way. I want to help you avoid those same mistakes.
Many people make serious errors when they start a raw vegan diet. Everything from becoming chronically dehydrated to becoming excessively thin.
That's why my meal plans not only give you recipes, but the order to eat them in, how much to eat, and what combinations of food to consume.
You can meet all of your nutritional needs, eat delicious food, and feel great all at once. You can try the raw vegan diet without any risk of making a mistake. Yo can do it just by following my raw vegan meal plans.
Instead of fumbling in the dark like most people who decide to transition, you'll have a plan to hold your hand.
Surprised at the amount of dessert? Don't be so shocked: we're talking whole, raw, nutritious ingredients.
You can lose weight, have excellent energy and have your cake, too!
All of my meal plans have a full nutrient analysis for each day, including: B1-B6, Vitamins A, C, E, K, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc, omega-3, omega-6, protein and more.
You'll be getting more than enough each and every day!
No risk of nutritional deficiencies, which are a serious pitfall that many vegans and raw vegans fall into.
Save yourself time and money with a proven plan to health.
My meal plans reveal the secrets to getting reliable results on a raw diet. The secrets that I have studied eight years to find! These secrets are condensed into an easy-to-follow straight-forward meal plan with a variety of exciting recipes.
With all the details you need laid out before you, your transformation will be easy.
"I feel so much better eating raw.
"Last night I made a nice raw hummus and John and I dipped kale romaine lettuce into it.
"It has been a month since I started eating all raw and I have lost eleven pounds. I am doing this because of how it makes me feel and for my long term health, so the weight loss is not my main motivation, but of course I want to lose the weight and am happy it is inching downward over time.
"Thank you Raederle! For all your help and encouragement."

Sarah: Ma'am, let me tell you, it's weird.
Raederle: What's weird?
Sarah: Eating like this. The strangest thing is the lack of hunger as I knew it. I used to get so hungry I would pay anything for food. Now hunger is tolerable for long stretches of time.
I feel like I am incredibly alert all of the time as well. The most amazing thing has been losing 6 pounds in a month with a pretty minimal amount of exercise.
Oh, and the other really amazing thing is how good salad actually tastes without dressing slathered all over it! Americans really treat salads as dressing delivery vehicles but honestly, I still like salad without the dressing so I'm just not going to use it anymore.

Countless testimonials to the raw food diet reveal that it is an effective cure for the lethargy that most people feel, as well as many other much more serious conditions. These cures, while valid and numbering in the thousands (or millions), are not recognized by the World Health Organization, or by the FDA, or by conventional medicine in America. However, it is my personal experience, and the experience of hundreds of people that I have encountered personally, that this diet works.
"Its only been a week after switching to only eating fresh, organic, and raw foods and I feel great. I finally found a lifestyle change that I completely love, and will be able to commit to long term. I love the foods, all the recipes are amazing.
"I'm sleeping better at night, and I feel better both physically and mentally.
"Thank you for everything, you've had such a wonderful impact on my life that I can hardly find the words to say to show you my appreciation. Thank you!"

My meal plans will keep your teeth healthy, utilize good food combination principles, maximize absorption of vital minerals, and show you in easy-to-understand terms how much you're getting of all the essential nutrients known today.
While my meal plans are only 7- or 8-days long, you'll be able to continue to incorporate the 20+ recipes into your life from here forward. In addition to that, you'll know seven (or more) different sets of food that allow you to meet your daily nutritional needs, which means that you'll be able to use the same "sets of food" again in different ways. A week's worth recipes, using the variation tips, could be extended to two or three weeks without being boring or repetitive.
In addition, if you were to buy more than one meal plan, you could mix up the days after going through each week, repeating your favorite days more often. And, best of all, if you buy all of them together, I give you a discount and a free bonus! (Details at the bottom of this page.)
"Raw vegan lunch by Chef Raederle today. Green Ginger Cookies, Raw Banana Cream Pie, and a salad with kale, spinach and romaine. BAM!! I'm in heaven!
"I am so grateful for this meal today...!
"The conference I attended today had nothing but refined sugar and breads to offer... Fourteen hours spent in the car or at the conference.
"So grateful for making the best choice for me today. And having such tasty alternatives to the as sugar well! ♥ ♥ ♥"

Following my meal plans will be a hands-on course in living raw and vegan without risking deficiencies. And deficiencies are serious. Minerals such as calcium and iron are not plentiful in many of the foods people reach for within the raw vegan diet, and over time this can be hard on muscles, resulting in muscle loss.
Getting the right amount of sodium can be confusing, as raw foods are so low in sodium that one can actually become sodium deficient if they are not aware of their intake.
However, after following a detailed meal plan, you'll have experienced a balanced raw vegan diet. You'll have a grasp of what you need in order to be balanced, blissful and elegant.
Blissfully Balanced 7-Day Meal Plan
I think of "Blissfully Balanced" as week one of my meal plans. It's very beginner friendly and contains raw comfort-food dishes.
Blissfully Balanced includes exercise-timing recommendations. These timing recommendations are provided to allow you to get the most out of your activity. They're recommended at times of day when the food will be providing you with the most energy. After exercise, the key nutrients you need to replenish are in the foods indicated.
Blissfully Balanced will maximize the results of your workouts, and also includes tips for using less fat if that is a goal for you.
"Raederle's recipe books are amazing, packed to the brim with delicious, mouthwatering dishes which as an added bonus are all amazingly healthy in every way possible. I've only been following the book for the last week but I already feel healthier and my skin looks more radiant and glowing than ever before. Thanks Raederle!"

Experience Elegance 8-Day Meal Plan
This plan is eight days instead of seven because the eighth day is "splurge day" which I think we should all have once or twice a month. Your emotional health is just as vital as your physical health. The more physically healthy you are the easier it is to be emotionally healthy. I find that most of us feel more comforted and contented with our lives when we splurge on occasion, and contentment is emotional health.
"Raederle's meals are honestly some of the most deliciously healthy meals I have ever enjoyed. She is passionate in her work and has extensive knowledge. Creating artistic and unique meals out of raw vegetables, fruits and herbs flows naturally from her. Her creations are immensely tasty and healthy.
"She is a great pleasure to be around at a personal level with such an obvious love of people. You can see that she gets a deep enjoyment in creatively combining unique flavors, colors, textures and physically nourishing qualities of foods to produce delicious main courses, side dishes, appetizers and healthy desserts. Her creations are pleasing visually as well as in taste and texture, and these factors contribute to abundant good health.
"I highly recommend experiencing Raederle's love inspired talents."

Nut-Free Delectable Delights 7-Day Meal Plan
As I explain in detail in Nut-Free Raw Recipes, there are many issues with a diet high in nuts. And some raw vegan gurus have come to prefer a nut-free approach to raw veganism, or at least a very, very low-nut approach. In my own life, as of January 2012, I currently consume about six nuts in a month. I'm not saying you need to do that, but most raw vegan recipes out there call for a measuring cup of nuts or more. To me, that is not in the spirit of raw veganism. This lifestyle is about raising your body and mind to thier optimal capacities.
Nut-Free Raw Recipes
If you want additional recipes, or are seeking an array of comfort foods that don't contain nuts, then Nut-Free Raw Recipes will supplement any of my meal plans excellently.
Also, Nut-Free Raw Recipes is particularly full of creative nut-free desserts for the adventurous sort. And none of them require a dehydrator!
"Nut-Free Raw Recipes is great! I like how you explained the 'whys' and 'hows' of things, and the photos look yummy. One of my favorite parts are the quotes you include with each recipe."
~ Veronika S., San Francisco, CA (March 2011)
Last night I made Magnificent Minty Mango with hemp seeds and my husband and I LOVED it.
Tonight I made Vanilla Cream Pie and we LOVED that too!
Looking forward to doing more.
