RAW FOOD PORN



Feast your eyes! Who says a raw food diet is limited? In the past 7 months I have had so much fun experimenting with different raw food recipes. When you first go raw, it is so important to JUICE in order to cleanse out old metabolic waste hanging out in the GI tract from the way you used to eat. I recommend doing a 7 day juice fast before switching over to raw foods because you get so cleaned out that by the time you are done with the fast, simple raw food recipes look and taste heavenly. The reason is because you cleansed out your palette! You no longer need all the salt, oils and fats to be satisfied. 

People choose to switch over to a raw food diet for a number of reasons, but I think the overall point is to get your health in gear. Often folks try it out for a few weeks and end up feeling so good that they just continue. That's what happened to me. I lost 15 pounds or so, had wayyy more energy, increased mental clarity, brighter mood, a sense of being more spiritually connected...to me it was like a no brainer! What I have learned since spending time with Dan is that there are so many people who NEED this now- its a life or death situation. And so more then anything, raw foods has given me a strong sense of purpose- to help whomever I can to learn about detoxification and to support them in this process. 

I think of it like going straight into the transformational fire of life. It feels extreme to a body who's cells are made up of a SAD diet but as you get cleaned out you realize that it isn't so extreme after all. Eating dead animal is extreme, cutting out organs and taking 8 different medications made of chemical medicine is extreme. But anyways, that revelation didn't hit me until after my mind was clear from juicing for several days. 

I am not against anyone's way of eating- but I do think our world is way off balance. So many people eat because they just don't have anything else exciting going on in their life. Maybe they work a 9-5 that they hate and the lunch break is all they look forward to so they can numb themselves out for the next few hours in order to make it through the end of the work shift. We can't deny that food is a drug for many people. I guess I could go on and on about how changing your food can change your life but I have a feeling I may just be preaching to the choir :)

Anyways, I loved going through my old instagram photos and looking at the beautiful foods I have been eating the last several months. It has been so much fun for me experiencing this lifestyle and I am TRULY grateful for it. I feel I v'e recovered a lost part of myself in the process.

PEACE

  5. Thanks for this, I'm a raw food wannabe but not quite able to commit to it but I will...one day....I'm one of those 9 to 5ers self medicating on sugary stuff to numb my boredom and get me through the day, need to change my career to a calling rather than one that just pays the bills, it's a vicious cycle, but the more I immerse myself in positive messages from people like yourself and Dan then the day of enlightment will surely follow, thanks for walking the walk :)

    1. You are sweet. I am listening to an audiobook called "Money and the Law of Attraction" by Esther and Jerry HIcks and it is very helpful! You may like it. I think our thoughts are so powerful in guiding us to higher energy fields-which attracts new and better situations, people, and opportunities to our lives. You probably have seen the Abraham teachings on youtube? If not, check it out. I am working with changing my thoughts now to attract what I want in my life. Thanks for reading my blog and commenting :)
