RAW FOOD 365

Update Time!

It’s been a long time coming, this is something I have been wanting and dreaming of for the last 5 years.  I’ve never tried and failed in the past, but I have tried and continued learning, plenty of times.  However, the time has finally come and the roller coaster has begun.

I’ve embarked on a 365 Day Journey with nothing but raw food.  Yes, raw food.  No cooked food, no alcohol, no coffee, no processed food, no baked goods, I think you get the picture.  Simply food, real food.  Fruit in it’s whole form, including frozen fruit.  Vegetables (including all greens) in their uncooked birthday suites.  And to drink?  The only acceptable liquid is water or home made fruit/veg juice.

The journey began on July 1st, 2017.  So far, it’s been a joy.  I was expecting the first couple of weeks to be the hardest, but in fact they were the easiest!  I prepared myself mentally, this was the key.  I’ve practiced on and off for 5 years, so this is NOT uncharted territory.  I have many raw foodist friends to consult with and confide in should I need some guidance or support.  Community is key!

If you want to know more of what I am eating day-to-day please follow me on INSTAGRAM!

I don’t want it to seem that I am pushing others to join me or that this is the one and only way to thrive.  However.. I certainly, unapologetically, encourage people to always research where there food comes from, encourage them to make improvements no matter where they are starting from, and to simply care, try, and experiment!  The way we feel, think, and perform in this world is directly related to our diet.  Our diet influences our physical being and metal state, this is who we are.  You are literally what you eat, everything is connected.  You and I are living breathing organisms, made up mostly of water.  We need living food for our living bodies.  I would not do this if it didn’t mean the world to me.  You cannot compare life on this planet on raw food vs processed cooked food (even vegan).  It’s day and night.  And I prefer.. day.

Please contact me directly for questions!
I am always looking to coach and guide so don’t be shy, I’m here for you.

Much love,

Mulberry Season Adventures

These are NOT pesky trees that stain our sidewalks and shoes.

These are tough trees that withstand harsh winters, and provide perfect purple bundles of nutrition that literally fall from the heavens!  They have survived urbanization, pollution, and deforestation.  Give them some praise will yah’.

We get such a thrill from checking them daily for ripeness, and having that green light once they start to fall.  Having the experience of eating something straight from the source, with no steps in between is so rare these days.. It’s called being high on life.

The excitement from the kids to pick.. ‘just one more’ is such a joy to watch.  We are designed to climb trees, and our fingers are perfectly made for picking fruit like this.

Eating high fiber, high water, nutrient dense, antioxidant rich food is how we thrive and survive.

Berries that we bring home are used for hot days like this.  Just blend some with frozen bananas and water for purple nice cream.  Easy and delicious!

Keep your eyes open for fruit in your area..

Our wild purple raspberries are next 🙂

Stay tuned.
