murmured: Hi! I read your articles and you've given me a new perspective. I started on your diet today because I'm feeling very weighed down by all the processed foods I eat. I have 2 questions. 1-Do you find yourself not feeling as satisfied after you eat? (Still hungry) 2-Did you find that any of your family members acted like you were dumb? My husband thinks I won't get enough nutrition. Should I just educate him on it more?
i feel so satisfied after my meals and i dont reach for food or graze and snack often cause my body is nutritionally satisfied and my body has what it needs. people called me nuts but they now eat similar to me, stay committed and you will eventually prove people wrong if you do it properly.my partner raised an eyebrow when i started but at the end of the day i was more educated than him so he had no legs to stand on when it came to nutrition info. watch docos together and make meals to share to help get other involved and youll be surprised who you inspire along the way. its your body your choice! x
Anonymous murmured: Is the guy in your photos your husband? Is he also raw, and when you guys met was he already eating a raw vegan diet? Also, was wondering if you ever plan on making youtube videos? Thanks love x Namaste
he is my partner. he is high carb plant based but still eats eggs and fish. thats his choice and thats fine. when we met we were meat and diary junk food eaters that loved the alcohol to. yes i certainly do plan on making videos x
murmured: Im 28 weeks preggo with baby number 4. I always seem to eat cleaner and more raw foods when pregnant. Only thing is, I stopped doing Bikram as it just didnt feel right to me. I am however still running and doing other exercise everyday. So, I'm wondering whats your pregnant exercise regime? Do you bikram still? x
congrats! no i took a break from bikram while pregnant. i just do swimming and water aerobics walking and hill walking and stretching. and going to start doing pregnancy yoga for the last bit of my pregnancy x
Anonymous murmured: Just wondering if you wear makeup, like foundation, or if you just go natural? You look flawless!

Anonymous murmured: Your instagram account is an art gallery! I found it after reading a negative article on a British newspaper website (I am from London). I think what you're doing is amazing. This is a lifestyle I haven't heard of, and may never have heard of if it wasn't for you. You're giving it publicity and no doubt helping thousands become healthy, myself one of them. I can't wait for your book to come out. Good luck with your new baby, I wish you success, health and happiness. You've totally inspired me. X
such happy vibes and thanks for looking into what im about instead of believing a shitty story in the press! have a rad day :) x
murmured: Hey Loni! I just read all the articles saying your diet is extreme and I think you shouldn't be getting this kind of criticism and negative energy, specially pregnant, when you ARE doing the right thing. I just thought I would come here and show some support and appreciation. You are truly my inspiration on the raw vegan path, my favourite raw foodie and your baby will be the cutest little thing!! Don't ever let this people get to you, they clearly lack bananas in their lives. Much love xx
it never gets to me, doesn’t even cross my energy bubble :) thank you for your kind words x
Anonymous murmured: hello loni! you are so gorgeous :) I was just wondering what is your favourite green smoothie recipie? x
vitamineral green scoop, 5 or more bananas and water x

Anonymous murmured: Hi Loni ! I know you've mentioned it before , but what are good ways to incorporate BSM into my diet ? I hate the taste of it and would love some good ideas ! Thank you , much love xx
i dont mind the taste at all! make sure its organic and unsulfered. i just take a spoonful and then drink water to wash it straight down, then have an orange or a few oranges or lemon water (something with vit c) to assist the absorption of iron. takes me 30 seconds morning and night! simple:) x
murmured: Hey Loni! I just wanted to know your position on the use of cacao, fermented foods and the use of super greens in the 80/10/10 lifestyle? I've been doing heaps of research and on the 30bananas a day site they've banned these foods, but I love my fermented sauerkraut and taking my spirulina cholrella in the morning. Do you think its really so bad? x
everyone has there own take on things. and i dont shun people nor make rules you just have to try things for yourself. i have a vitamineral green powder i have in my smoothies all the time, i travel alot and have a busy lifestyle and its a great way for me to get alot of nutrients in when i cant get organic greens and big salads and i honestly love the stuff. dont really eat cacao. i love sauerkraut and my gut loves it to. its just about being aware of how things affect you and adapting to that :)
Anonymous murmured: How do you prep your lemon water? Do you do it the night before, and how much lemon per litre?
just a few slices of fresh lemon straight into warm or room temperature water and thats it! x
murmured: ahhhh i found you through freelee's video and omg your so inspirational and beautiful!! :) You should definitely make a youtube channel. <3 <3 !!
thanks for the support :) x
Anonymous murmured: Is there a reason you are now eating heaps of cooked food? Wouldn't it be beneficial for your baby to be more raw like that lady on Instagram "elenfisher" I think her name is... And it's summer weather now so it's not like its cold
i go thru stages of eating fully raw for months and times of eating cooked food at night. your body changes and goes thru different stages and i adapt to that. Only im the one that can say whats beneficial for myself and my baby no one else. if i feel better some times having some plant based cook food at night then thats what im going to do. and i have been sharing it more because i feel like and have seen thats its easier for people to transition into this lifestyle or even go fully raw if they eat some cooked food at night instead of falling off the wagon and going back to eating crap foods cause they dont eat enough and feel guilty for wanting to eat cooked food. im not trying to be like anyone else, following any one else or trying to be in the ‘purity’ clan. i am just doing what works for me and most days its all raw somedays it could be days in a row of cooked meals for dinner just depends. and i have seen that it works for alot of others dong it this way. if you want to be fully raw vegan, fruitarian, high fat raw vegan or whatever it is thats cool with me doesn’t bother me im just doing my thing and sharing it. peace x
