Light Eating for Survival #2

Unless you’re a ‘comments’ reader extraordinaire (I’m not), you might have missed that the lovely Marcia Acciardo, author of one of my favourite raw books, Light Eating for Survival, remarked on one of my early blog posts recently. I took the chance to cheekily ask for any words of wisdom she cared to share for those newer than her on the raw(ish) path. Herewith her fabulous response:

Let’s see...

Enjoy your life to the fullest and those who share it with you.

Find work that feels good and provides you with financial independence.

Healthy, natural foods are very important, and have served me well over the years. I am no longer a food purist, I still eat very well - whole, fresh, natural, local whenever possible foods, and yes lots of raw fruits and vegetables daily.

I love to walk, hike, swim, and work out to stay in shape and have been very healthy compared to others my age.

Trust yourself, and know that each of us are unique, and what might be good for one person, may not be right for another.

Be happy, be positive, and always look on the bright side of life. It’s so much better that way!

Best Wishes,


Thank you Marcia, such fantastic ‘guidance for life’! My personal addendum would be to grow as much of your own food as possible (the picture above is from some dreamy Cambridge allotments I stumbled upon earlier this week), or at least buy food produced within a certain radius ... supremely important for both yourself and the planet. Thank you again Marcia, and if you haven’t yet got a copy of Light Eating For Survival I highly recommend that you hunt one down ...
