If raw foods are more than a diet, what is Yah’some Living and a raw living whole food lifestyle? Although most people begin with diet, other aspects of the lifestyle to consider include exercise, meditation and spiritual practices, mindfulness and thought patterns, and much, much more. The beauty of Yah’some Living with the raw, living whole foods lifestyle is that it is an ancient yet newly emerging lifestyle, a concept that was practiced centuries ago and now is finding it’s way into our lives once again. We are ever evolving, changing and growing and we have begun to get back to the original plan of sustainable life and heaven on Earth. No one ever achieves ‘perfection’ but pursues a daily, personal path of growth and change. A person who follows the laws of the universe and lives on a raw vegan lifestyle provides a great foundation and starting point as well as a community of support for encouragement, motivation and friendship.

The other day someone asked me about eating raw food and they said “the raw food diet”. When I think of raw foods, I think of it as a lifestyle. When I hear “the raw food diet”, all that comes to mind is the diet pill advertisements promising you will loose 30 pounds in in 30 days or some other unrealistic weight loss promise. While this may be true in a small percent of the cases, it’s often been documented that those same people gain the weight back and sometimes more weight than they had before. With Yah’some living, it is all about a lifestyle of living a healthy vibrant life with good organic foods and clean living. I first began to think more seriously about my health and what I was eating from reading the Bible. God or “Yah” in Hebrew provided us with an abundant of foods to nourish and heal our bodies when we are sick. Eating raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and micronutrient foods was more about a spiritual awakening and gaining health then about loosing weight. However, in the process of my spiritual discovery and separating myself to Yah or Yahwah, I lost a great deal of weight and I continue to do so without even trying.
