Where do you get your protein?

If there’s one question every vegan/vegetarian gets more than any other from the vegan-curious and the vegan-skeptical, it’s “So, where do you get your protein?” Here’s the short of it:


Food or Not? Lifestyle

Survival decisions: How to tell if it’s real food!

My lifelong as well as daily survival decisions are based on certain stable truths and principles that never change. Here’s one:




It’s going to happen again…forgive, but don’t forget

Forgive, but don’t forget. Unless those who ridiculed and punished you for resisting develop their own capacity for making survival decisions based on independent analysis, critical thinking, logic and adherence to a set of non-negotiable principles and standards, they are just as likely in the near future to get swept up in the next wave of mass hysteria occasioned by the next perceived or manufactured threat–whether it be pandemic, war, natural disaster or even alien invasion–based on what the “experts” say and what “the science” tells them to do. Be vigilant.

The term “hesitant” when it comes to “you know what” is definitely misleading! Among other things, it implies that I’m conflicted about my decision, or that I’m waiting to take THE action. Well, I’m neither conflicted nor ambivalent. My “hell no” decision was immediate, full of surety and unhesitating in every way! Get it right!

And, for the record, this and all my survival decisions have nothing to do with vaccines, per se, but everything to do with a simple, lifelong decision and my unwavering, non-negotiable decision to stay away from non-foods, chemicals, poisons, pharmaceuticals and other man-made substances for which the body was not designed as I do my best to live a natural life in an unnatural world while I pursue perfect health, long life and the fountain of youth!–Walt Goodridge (aka “The Ageless Adept”; Author of A Clean Cell Never Dies and publisher of Fast & Grow Young!

Are you living an integrated life? Take the test….

BE THE FIRST TO TAKE THE TEST (and receive 4 free ebooks) AT: share it with your friends and get a conversation going!

In the pursuit of money and career, people often sacrifice the things they are really passionate about. In the execution of their daily diet, people are often sacrificing their health. In prioritizing their desire to be in a relationship, people sometimes sacrifice the full expression of their own sexuality. I’ve observed and experienced this in my own life as well as in the choices and outcomes of those around me.

This sad reality is often due to societal pressure to be, do and have certain things in certain ways and at certain times in our lives.

A life can be balanced in many ways. When I, however, talk about a life that’s “integrated,”  I’m referring to how balanced it is in those areas of career, diet and relationships. The questions are:

Is your pursuit of a career balanced with the expression of your passion?

Is your daily diet actually balanced with and supporting your health?

Is your relationship offering the satisfaction of your sexuality?

I wrote a short, FREE ebook titled, appropriately enough, The Integrated Life A Blueprint for Balancing Passion With Career, Diet With Health & Sexuality With Relationship (available as a free download at  It was originally targeted to “passionpreneurs” as a primer for the career vs. passion challenge, but is relevant to just about everyone!

It contains a few ideas to get a conversation going (and perhaps lead to  some changes in your life) and includes a short questionnaire test to determine your “Integration Quotient,” a score of how well you’re doing on your journey. I’ve just spent the last few days coding and have re-set and relaunched the online version of that test on my website:

I’m still here!

Hey all! I’m still here! I’ve been retooling and revamping a few systems and structures behind the scenes for an upgrade to be launched in a few days! Thanks for your patience! Here a few clues as to what some of that entails:


Day 9. …and I wake up pointing northeast….

It shouldn’t surprise you that, yep, I’m doing another fast (and I’m just beginning Day 9;  193 hours as of 5am) I’m still working on an experiment that will be revealed in due time in an upcoming book on cleansing. In any case, for those who are contemplating or consumed (pun intended) with their own extended water fast, juice fast or lemonade fast, here are a few things I’ve noticed so we can compare notes.

I embraced it on Day 7. In this fast, as is (always) accurately predicted in the Stages of Fasting infographic, I “settled into” the fast by DAY 7. On that day, the “urge to crunch,” (a habitual desire to simply crunch on something like chips or nuts) disappeared. From that point on, I can easily sail through the days without any urges.

Dreams are more unique (more emotional, more vivid) and I can retain the details even after I wake and go about my day. My sleep also seems deeper. In other words, I get lost in the depths of sleep and dreaming and am not as aware I’m sleeping. Typically, even when I’m sleeping and dreaming, I’m usually aware that I’m sleeping and dreaming.

Creativity skyrockets. This is something I’ve always experienced. Once my mind is freer of toxic and parasite loads, the ideas for books, poems, quotes, videos, t-shirt slogans as well as the motivation to implement and execute those ideas increases. It’s now 5:22am on a Saturday morning, and I’ve been up since 4:31am simply dumping all those ideas into task lists I’ll be working on over the coming days.

I wake up pointing northeast. Now this is something I noticed during the 45-day fast and it seems to be happening again. Due to the layout and limitations of my apartment building, the head of my bed is oriented on a somewhat skewed angle relative to the (North-South-East-West) points on a compass. Usually, I wake up in the same orientation in which I go to bed. However, after these recent deep, restful, dream-filled nights, I’m waking up in a specific northeast orientation that is very noticeable. Does it mean anything? Is it related to the prevailing northeast winds here on Saipan? Is there a connection to true north versus magnetic north? Now, it’s entirely possible this is all completely random and is simply the result of the workings of an overactive, food-deprived mind and has nothing to do with anything relative! However, I just wanted to put it out there to have a little fun. I’ll do some research* and give you an update! Meanwhile, if you have anything to share about your own sleep orientation or sleep habits during a fast, please do leave it in the comments section!


*To test my magnetic/true north theories, I’ll have to get a compass or upgrade my phone to one with a magnetometer so the compass apps will function!



If I give up eggs and dairy, how do I maintain a “normal” weight?

Valid question. Here are my thoughts:




Scrambled tofu “eggs” & tofurky “bacon!”

Here’s a quick and easy breakfast/brunch that I treat myself to every now and then!

Chop/dice tomatoes, onions and scallion

1/4 block extra firm tofu

Tablespoon oil

Stir fry tomatoes, onions scallion

Add tofu


Turmeric for color

Black & white pepper





Earth Balance “buttery” spread

Fried “bacony” tofurky


Serve and enjoy
