Raw, vegan, unprocessed, no sugar, no caffeine, alkaline and organic… I lasted 45 hours ( an entire weekend ) on a raw retreat and that was enough for me!
I would class myself 80% vegan, the other 20% is when I enjoy life without rules or restrictions, and I’ve come to accept that lifestyle and personal choice works best for me. I enjoy cooking up healthy food over the stove, I socially enjoy seafood, eggs and a bit of dairy, I dont the have time to make everything from scratch so appreciate the convience of the supermarket, every now and then I treat myself to some chocolate and I looooove 1 extra hot latte in the morning!
I learnt over the weekend that I do need to be drinking more filtered water, that it wouldn’t hurt to increase more alkaline foods in to my diet, that moving and stretching the body and reducing toxicity ( negativity ) is key to being disease free and healthy.
However being obsessed with what you eat and how you live for me is NOT healthy. Ok, yes I’ve chosen to blog weekly about not drinking alcohol but I’m not obsessed with it, each week I feel better when not drinking so it’s a personal choice that’s worked out best for me.
So my advice, be more conscious of how you take care of yourself, listen to what works for YOUR body ( as we are all different ) have fun, break a few rules, laugh, cry, love and be grateful that you have this day to enjoy, cheers! :)
