Activity today :
35kms on the bike
5 salutes to the sun
10 banana smoothie
300gms of white mulberries (oh god amazing!!!)
Spiralized salad(recipe below photo)
200gms dried organic figs
for all the brilliant white mulberries i relished
because I got to give sugar to others
that i got to meet one of my clients in person today
for the steel ‘horse’ i ride…
I helped out at the Organic Shop today, it was fun, I picked white mulberries out the back of the shop inbetween busy times, amazing incredible flavor! Every customer who came in I offered them some mulberries, their eyes lit up as soon as the sweetness hit their tongues…was nice to witness.
I realize its challenging for most peeps to consider a raw lifestyle & I know there is more to succeeding on a LFRV lifestyle than just eating lots of fruit! Apart from eating large quantity of fruit there is addressing the beliefs we hold close to us that govern our every decision we make in life. I have some techniques I have found very effective in changing some of my own beliefs..
The most important thing we can do to bring about change is to RAISE OUR STANDARDS…Most peeps have pretty low standards & expectations for their existence. We only get one go at this right? lets make this a life to remember! Doesn’t your belly deserve better than that dead carcass? raw cheesecake or tofu burger? Ofcourse it does! U can choose to be the healthiest person u know…everything is just a choice in the moment.
Do u want to be just another zombie sleep-walking through life? Or do u want to create a brilliant presence that not only inspires yourself but also others? What a gift to give….If we don’t raise our standards change will always be temporary, we may be ‘good’ for a while & eat lots of fruit because we are told its healthy for us or we want to lose weight etc but pretty soon we will resort back to our old standards because we have not gone to the root of the problem. In saying this we also need to have a good supply of nutrition to our bodyminds to support any sort of self-development, so finding a balance is vital.
When I first went raw vegan 3years ago I did so for my health, i had chronic digestive distress, acne, depression & candida overgrowth. I also liked the weightloss aspect so this was also high on my reasons for going raw & what happened as a result?…I went back to cooked food…I wanted to get super lean (a mental side effect of working in one of the biggest gyms in Aussieland!…) I simply didn’t have enough leverage to stay raw so I started to sabotage & undereat, undereating on raw = cooked food everytime.
The point im making is you need real leverage to stay on this path!! YOu need some good reasons, I made this connection after my fall back into cooked food & so I decided to RAISE MY STANDARDS & really build my resolve with some worthwhile reasons to stay raw…
* Cooked food = murder of animals, their habitats & the planet
….to be continued….ahh sorry!! will update this blog tomorrow so stay tuned for my raw reasons…
