Healthy and Raw……
What does that mean to you?
Do you think of eating just carrots sticks and salads all the time?
Giving up everything you like to eat?
Being hungry a lot?
Some people even ask ‘meat too’?
I wanted to share with you what I think that healthy and raw mean to me and why I choose those words.
Healthy – to feel good, no great, to look good, have that sparkle in the eye, to have a presence that is confident, calming, energetic, grateful, peaceful, inviting, inspiring, motivating and happy.
Raw – for me that is real food, simple, easy, alive, BUT also me…..(ok maybe not simple) but alive, real and authentic.
Yes this is about eating raw foods, because I believe that what we put into our bodies, our food choices, does affect our thoughts, our emotions, our moods. So, when we clean up our diet ( and what works best for you may be different than me) and make that more of a lifestyle, we can become clearer. We feed our bodies, and clean our bodies. With a clean body we have a cleaner mind and we can become more real, more raw, more authentic.
To me being raw means being real. I had to go through a lot of dark nights to learn that. My food choices over the years has played a huge role for me.
When one decides to bring in more real, live, raw foods into their life, they have more time…….really.
How much time do you read labels looking for carbs, fats, calories, proteins etc? How much time do you waste weighing yourself and fretting over the numbers on the scales? Looking through magazines for the latest ‘diet’ or pill or whatever else is new? How often are you tired and just don’t have the energy?
I could go on.
Is that the real you?
Healthy and Raw – alive, energy, sparkle, beautiful, confident, happy, real
Love to hear your thoughts!!
Here is to your health and being real!!
