Changing your dietary habits isn’t hard. No, really! It isn’t! It involves a few simple steps to rewire how your brain responds to the food you have been feeding it. It’s tricking yourself from yourself.
How is this done?
Raw Vegan, sounds intimidating, but all it really means is adding live, active, FRESH FOODS to your diet. You know FRESH, ORGANIC, preferably local. That old adage of “you are what you eat”, is an old adage for a reason. Just as you are your words, thoughts and actions. If you are putting processed, refined, swimming in artificial additives and gmo’s, what do you think that is going to do your holy temple? Your liver filters everything we put in our bodies, and even though the human body is a wonderwell of adaptogenic properties, this adapting takes time and may take a toll on your health. So drop that artificial sweetener packet, chuck those sugar loaded-carbonated beverages and those microwave bags of frozen veggies. Lose the white sugar, the white bread!
This doesn’t mean you are signing up for a raw vegan cult and giving up having fun with your food. You are taking steps to loving your liver, your digestive system, your endocrine, your adrenals and your nervous system, and in turn your body will show you some love by giving you glowing skin, restful sleep and an active, lean body.
Here’s a great acronym I recently came across, which I follow at all times. Never stray from this and your body will reward you with glowing health and sexy stamina for the rest of your days.
eat less CRAP:
C – carbonated drinks(all colas, fizzy beverages)
R – refined sugars(candy, white sugar, light brown sugar, powdered sugar)
A – artificial sweeteners & colours(food dyes)
P – processed foods(try not EAT anything that has more than FIVE ingredients)
eat more FOOD:
F – fruit & veggies(as much as possible, make 60% of your diet at least!)
O – organic lean protein, plant based protein(hemp powder)
O – omega 3 fatty acids(vitamin d, flax, sacha inchi oil, primrose oil)
D – drink water(lots of it)
To start…Wake up every morning, serve yourself a glass of water, squeeze some fresh organic lemon juice, sweeten with a little organic stevia.
Wait an hour, then make your morning Raw Vegan Green breakfast smoothie. Your thyroid will revel in all the metabolic good-for-you fun you are giving it.
Raw Vegan Green Smoothie:
— BLEND. DONE!
Later… Eat a complex green salad with four different veggies, learn to love avocados.
See! So easy, so good and good for you.
Live. Love. Life!
