We always talk about eating raw foods and eating healthy and how great it is for you and how much you’ll change from it. But there’s more to the story than that. It’s what you DON’T eat anymore that changes you the most.
By eliminating what I like to call “food products” from your lifestyle, you will have a big shift. I’m talkin’ about chips, candy, things in jars, cans, plastic wrappers, microwave dinners, energy drinks, etc. You get rid of that toxic waste dump and your body will feel life.
Then, you stop with the dairy and meat industry. Gimme a break. You really think that stuff is helping you? C’mon you know better! But the fact is, we have emotional eating habits and if you can become more aware of that, then you’ll be on a winning streak.
Some easy tips:
- If you fry something, use coconut oil and fry it at a low temperature if possible.
- Drink a lot of water to counter the negative effects of anything that you know is ‘bad’ for you but you are eating it anyway.
- If you cave in and eat some junk food, be sure to juice a lot of dark greens the next day.
- No matter what you are eating, simply thank the universe (or whatever your personal belief system supports) for the food you are giving your body and take a moment to feel gratitude.
Raw foods are not a diet. They are a lifestyle and some days will be easier than others and some days you might just slide backwards or feel a struggle. Forgive yourself and remember, tomorrow is another day. Breathe in, breathe out. Smile from your liver.
