Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

Sorry for the strange behavior of this site over the past few weeks, friends. As a former professional web programmer, and always a?bit of a mad hacker, I'm usually really great at keeping the web end of Pure Jeevan running very smoothly.

But, this is a Wordpress blog -- and so you have things like plugins and widgets and themes and updates, all interacting (and sometimes conflicting) with one another. I've noticed lately that this blog home page has developed all sorts of peculiar issues, not the least of which is a very slow-loading tendency.

Fortunately, I addressed much of that behavior last night and, although it's still not "blazing" fast, I think it's at least back within the normal range of acceptability now.We are, at least, no longer creeping along with the lovely, but very slow, tortoises. (And it only took around six hours of tweaking code blocks, various settings, and server configurations!? What fun.)

So, let's get back to raw foods tomorrow, shall we ? I have a nice piece planned on ways that going raw will probably CHANGE you!? But for now, I'd just like to know:? Did the blog load okay for you today

It looks the same for me. The only issue I have is the box that comes on each time I enter the site - the one for the free recipes. Since the "close" button is at the bottom, I am often unable to click on it because of the way my home computer screen is - can scroll, can't click "close" so often I end up just skipping checking this blog.

Works for me..., good job & thanks! I do have a question to anyone who'd care to respond, I'm wondering with smoothies or eating in general if there are some food combinations that are better - am thinking about acids vs alkalines etc. Gary

looks good out here on the left coast, jim... on a mac. yes, it's faster now. good work!

gary, i am rather eclectic and my favorite book on food combining is judy mazels original 'beverly hills diet'... the one with the gold pineapple on the cover. if you can grok the principles of different systems -- macrobiotic, blood type, beverly hills, etc... without buying into the 'dogma', you can learn helpful things without becoming a 'devotee' of any one system. i'm sure you know what i mean. i am a very UNreligious person but i love many things that contain helpful information.

Thanks Patricia, I will check Judy's book out, I remember when it came out just never did a read thru.. I've been working with (besides Jim & Wendi's e-books), 1). Green for Life - Victoria Boutenko, 2). The Raw Foods Diet: the vital gift of Enzymes - Jim karas,Carolyn Griesse & 3). Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine - Gabriel Cousens, and was just curious what others take were on the pros & cons of combining sifferent types of Raw Foods, again thanks for the tip... Gary

Love that comment. It's great to take insights and incorporate lessons / best practices from diverse places.
