Rawlicious Recipes by Andrea Cox.

Is this popular food making you gain weight?

Hi there beautiful! If you're like me, you work to stay in shape! You take things like your yoga practice and gym time seriously! In fact, you schedule it in!

If your like 90% of the women that come to me for coaching with everything from skin issues, weight that just won't budge to recovery after going through chemo, you most likely consume this popular food in your daily smoothie, spread over bread or sprinkled on your soups and salads!

Whats the food I'm talking about? What food causes women to gain weight rapidly and if done in over abundance an wreak havoc on ones hormones? NUTS! YEP! You guessed it, nuts! You can soak them, sprout them do whatever the heck you want with them but mark my words, NO WOMAN I have ever met can eat a serving size of nuts and stop! Honestly, ask yourself if you stop after eating ONE Brazil nuts or just twelve almonds? I bet the answer is NO!

Below are my top three reasons for limiting my nut intake to no more than one~two servings per day! Not twelve, but one~two!

1} Some nuts are estrogenic ~ this means they stimulate the body to produce more estrogen than it already does. Estrogen is great and yes, both men and women need it but NO, we don't need to over eat on foods that bring on more estrogen!

2} They are difficult to digest! One of the BIGGEST mistakes I see new vegans and raw folders do is to go out and buy gourmet vegan and raw food books with all of these fancy, heavily laden nut dishes in them! Good lord, I honestly prefer people to rethink this fallacy!

3} They are not food combinable! This means they contain both proteins and carbs with fat! Therefore they are ONLY to be used in conjunction with a green meal or with dried fruit in moderate amounts. To be truthful, they are best eaten alone as a snack! If you can keep it to one serving! :)

What I had for brunch today! Nut~less cereal!

12 oz of banana date milk

7 dried dates

1 fresh banana

dried plantains

dried bananas on top!

Want to have a great week? Read this!

Hi beautiful:)

I decided to just send PURE love! PURE inspiration! PURE motivation and PURE authenticity to you today! Sure, I try to always do this but sometimes, all of us paint the grass as being slightly bigger than it is. I'm going to get very real then send you some positive mojo with a recipe, video and inspirational share! Enjoy!


I woke at 4am to cross over the border to return to San Diego. I have 30 days to find a new home, pack a 2500 SF home, eliminate items that no longer bring me joy & to make a decision that is weighing heavy on my heart!

I have two people living in my home at this time. A gentle health practitioner who is establishing himself in this area & a woman detoxing at the resort next to my home from Denmark. My lil furry husband has also decided to develop a dislike for everyone but myself in his eighth year of life! The people in my home bring me peace.

I returned home to find myself doing three sets of laundry only to be followed by a day of purging items & packing! I will only break time for my clients! Then, one of the four loves of my life reached out! My sister Stacey! Stacey's gentle reminder to "take it one day at a time" has me on my bedroom floor in tears!

I'm blessed to have my four loves ~ my two older sisters, mother and nephew in my life to remind me of how graciously God has blessed me! They always remind me of my strength from my good solid Ohio roots!

INSPIRATION TO "RELAX INTO WHAT IS"!

relaxI know you're busy, I know you have kids, you have husbands & wives, chores to do & things that need fixed! I know at times you feel over worked & under paid! I know you feel unappreciated & often misunderstood. Please, take time for yourself! Both this week and throughout life! It's in those times when we are one with God, the Earth & ourselves that music & Magic are born! In the minds quiet moments, may you find your rhythm and your soul!

Remember,  I only want the very best for you! YOU ARE ENOUGH! 


I'm about to move and I don't know where! Isn't that what life is all about?! Discovering the mystery while enjoying the dance?!

I’m Retiring….

Hi there:) I'm not actually retiring! I am retiring a HUGE part of my business! I've held off on something I had been offering you for a while now! Something I get requests on DAILY! 

Many people for quite some time now have been asking when I'll be offering my coaching again! I mean, I took an ENTIRE YEAR off of doing what helps YOU the most and what I LOVE to do the most! The truth is, I wanted to focus on the clients I was already working with before I decided to accept more coming in.

I wanted to wait for the perfect opportunity to start helping you attain YOUR BEST feeling and looking self you've ever seen or felt!

So yesterday I was offered an AMAZING opportunity! One that will be taking up a LOT of my time come June1st! The first thing that entered my mind was to offer you a spot in my coaching program before I stop offering it! This is the same program that my clients RAVE about! The same one that helps them balance their weight, health and life once and for all!

My coaching program has offered people just like you the following for years! 

- Men get rid of your belly fat once and for all!

- women, say bye bye to thick thighs and cellulite!

- PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) & ovarian cysts

- Detoxing after you've went throgh chemo

- Bad PMS

- Perimenopause & Menopause

- How to rid your body of Candida (yeast) once and for all!

- Dealing with Binge eating! I give you the tools to stop!

- How to lose weight FAST and keep it off for good!

- I teach you HOW to detox! You won't pay another dime! You'll be able to do it on your own!

And guess what, I'm running this ONLY until this Friday at noon!


(That's Noon Pacific)

So I know this is short notice given it's less than three days away, but I urge you to secure your spot now! I really feel that this will be the final time I offer my coaching services! I truly feel that my work in this area gets SO much of my attention that my next venture (mentioned above) will be to take my expertise globally! I simply won't have the time any longer.

I will also say that had I have known how important it was to detoxify, balance my hormones and de-stress years ago, I would have started MUCH MUCH sooner!

 Remember, it IS possible for you to look and FEEL sexier and more beautiful than when you were at 2, 25 or 30! I'm living proof! I want you to FEEL and look it too!


Shoot me an email at RawFoodTeacher@Yahoo.comor Andrea@thehealthyhaven.net and lets see if we are a good fit to work TOGETHER to get you back to your "Happy Place"!

Beauty222Big hugs, Andrea

A little "MOJO" and some sweet advice from your truly! :)
Some of the kindest acts I've ever have taken place in grocery store checkout lines!
Last Friday I was trying to rush around and cram all of my errands for an entire week into just a few hours! I spend my weekends out of town and usually that means Mexico, LA and occasionally Vegas. This past weekend it was Mexico to relax at the "man-pan-ions" house.

In traditional "Andrea style" I put everything off until the final hours and was running all over the place. I looked at my cell and realized I hadn't eaten and 5pm was approaching! I stopped at a local Vons supermarket where I grabbed some pretty smelling flowers and two containers of salad greens. As I was checking out I realized that I had either left my wallet in the car or at my last location. As I fumbled in my purse the gentleman behind me said "I've got it, just pay it forward". I insisted that my wallet was in my car and it wouldn't be necessary. He said "what a waste of energy, this is twenty bucks & I've got it"!

I can't tell you how many times I've been in a supermarket checkout line and paid for someone's items that didn't have the money. Each time I left I felt good about myself and didn't think a second thought about it. Usually I would say "we all have rough days". From now on I'll always say "please pay it forward"!

When I got back in my car my wallet was on the floorboard. As I looked around the parking lot he was nowhere to be found.

Allow no act of kindness to go unnoticed! There's too much cruelty in this world to let good deeds go without praise!
