Quotes by Spice Williams-Crosby:
|"In 1977, I decided to 'turn my life
around' and learn how to rebuild my body with foods designed to
|"I was a treatment nurse, medical
transcriber and grew up in a medical world on a ranch with lots
of meat and dairy. The American Way!!! I knew I had to go into
the truth of the body and find out biochemically why I had a
weight problem, health problems, skin problems etc. ... I then
stumbled across a book called Food Combining by Herbert
Shelton and my concept of food and life totally turned around. I
began to study digestion time and realized that animal flesh and
dairy was rotting and putrefying in my gut lining. Pleasant
|"As I began to eliminate the
foods that took the longest, I took on a lifestyle of eating
that changed my body and my sense of well being. One day,
someone asked me what I eat. I told them and they began to tell
me I was a VEGAN! I replied, "A what?" I had no idea I had
transformed myself into something that actually had a name for
|"The time of my change, it was purely for
health. However, the cleaner my body became, the evidence of not
wanting to participate in the killing of animals became
extremely apparent and now I know it's for both reasons."
|"How dare we take an animal's life! Think
about it...when we kill animals, we TAKE their life away. Who
died and made us God? We are ignorant and full of excuses for
doing this. I will have no part of this action of man."
|When asked what she finds hard
about being a vegan, she answered:
|"Nothing. This is my spiritual journey.
Once I realized I was here and going for this ride, I was in
love with my choice."
|"Not only do I feel better, but safer. I
talked to many people every week who are dealing with cancers,
auto immune diseases and feeling bad, over weight, headaches,
hormonal imbalances etc...I don't have to worry about any of
that stuff. I feel clean and safe."
|"In my family, we are all organic vegans.
I've been a vegan for 30 years now [interview 2010]. I have two masters in
fitness & nutrition and currently doing my PhD in Holistic
Nutrition. Outside of health, I don't believe in torturing
|"The state of the human race scares me.
People walk around vertically dead and unaware of all the lies
and deceit they live with everyday. Everything from the foods
they consume to the drugs they are told to put their children
on. Educated People Make Educated Decisions! However, the human
race today would rather have someone tell them what to eat,
drink and to believe in rather than stepping up to the plate and
taking a stand."
|"I know one thing, the only thing constant
is change. If we can keep evolving, growing and learning ways to
stay out of corporate corruption, and become human beings worthy
of spiritual flight, then the journey is all good. I keep in
mind that we are not human beings trying to have a spiritual
experience, but spirits trying to have a human experience. We
should try to make the experience not only be worth it, but
let's try to make this human experience better for others while
we are here to play!!!!"
|"If you change to a very healthy lifestyle
and you set an example of love, and high energy then the world
will come to you asking you the same question they ask
me..."What do you eat that makes you look so healthy, full of
energy and strong?" I just smile and proudly say, 'I'm a

sister. ... We always loved performing and when we were 12 years
old, we were asked to be the Golden Arch Girls for Ray Kroc who
created McDonalds and sing at the conventions! Being a 30 year
vegan, I think back on those days and laugh!"
