I received an email last night with a great question! I was asked how a person can re-motivate themselves to get back on a raw food diet when everyone surrounding this person is eating junk food and doing fine. Why is it some people do well on processed sugary food and others are way too sensitive and feel terrible on that type of food.
I received an email over the weekend with a question that disturbed me a lot. I was asked why this person was not thriving or having energy on a raw food diet. They told me that they eat mostly bananas and lettuce! What bothered me was the fact that this person innocently thought they were doing the right thing, which is not their fault– its the fault of where they are getting the information from and not doing more in depth research into the raw food diet. Yes there are many people that are eating a lot of bananas and lettuce– thats fine, BUT they are also eating other foods as well!!! You can’t just have a diet of just bananas and lettuce, over time you will develop problems and deficiencies. So, today’s episode is all about the right way to do the raw food diet.
Don’t forget to SIGN-UP for the juice feast, its coming up this Thursday– So exciting!!!
We can all agree that fresh fruits & vegetables can get expensive, especially fresh organic fruits & vegetables!! Over time I’ve figured out ways to save money and not be spending a fortune on my food– it takes a little creativity and some investigation into local merchants that can sell you food at a better price and being creative in the foods you buy and what you do with them. In today’s video I give you some tips that have helped me!
