28 Days Raw Day Two

Standard

I got up today feeling good. I have been working on the happiness exercises that are included in the program. Its quite interesting thinking about what makes us happy! I have been focusing on small things that make me happy. Moments that make me happy. Feelings and thoughts that make me smile.
Today I had some fruit for breakfast, salad with a few walnuts for lunch and nut sushi for dinner they were scrummy and filling. I couldn’t eat them all so I have saved some for lunch tomorrow. I went to the cinema tonight with my partner, I decided to make myself some raw chocolate to take with me as a treat. I have been craving chocolate for a while now. I made a concious decision to allow myself some as a reward for all my hard work. Its so much nicer when we have the head space to consult our cravings, debate with them and make an informed choice. I made raw chocolate with crushed hazelnuts, I took a small amount in a bag to eat during the film. I put a couple of straws in my bottle of water to make it feel special. One massive lesson I have learnt is the rituals of my eating habits.
If we can change the ritual just slightly each time a new healthier ritual replaces old habits.
I am going to have a Shrek Juice in the morning. I am going to really increase my exercise for this 28 Day Challenge to really kick start my body.

28 Days Raw Day One

Standard

Yesterday I finished the 21 day Garden Diet Cleanse and today I am starting 28 Days Raw. I am really pushing the boundaries here. I am loving the challenge and embracing the changes. I have learnt so much about myself and others during my journey so far. 

I started today with freshly squeezed orange juice, avocado salad for lunch with pine nuts and chilli.

Dinner I had tabbouleh salad made with hemp seeds, avocado, chilli, garlic and onion it was delicious. It was so nice I dived in without taking a photo.

I am looking forward to see what other changes take place as my body is allowed to go deeper into cleansing itself.

Are you a Gentically Modified Human Being!!

Standard

I am in deep thought here! I am on day 17 of a 21 day cleanse. I am a true believer that we are what we eat. Although I will be honest Gillian Mckeith scares me alongside many others I am sure.
Since becoming Vegan this April I am feeling amazing. I am gradually integrating more Raw Foods I feel a greater connection with nature and the world around me. I feel lighter yes literally lighter as I have lost 18 pounds since becoming Vegan. Its not because I starve myself.. Oh No! I love my food. I have been creative and inventive with my meals. I am still searching for a replacement to Friday night good ol greasy chips with lashings of salt & vinegar.
I am currently offering a reward for anyone who can deliver me a nutritious Raw substitute for chips.

MMMMMMM I appear to have digressed as usual. My original question….. Are you a Genetically Modified Human Being ? I was wondering as we are literally what we eat, if you are eating mostly Genetically Modified foods ? Could you be a Genetically Modified Human Being. Its a scary thought really isn’t it! I do my best to buy organic food where I can and grow my own vegetables from heritage seeds. Even this is not guaranteed unfortunately, there is so much corruption in the food industry as its Big Big Money!
