So I didn't do a blog entry on last week's class as i had hoped. it went astonishly well yet again.. then the next day i was driving into town to get my groceries and got into a head on collision making a turn at an intersection.. in short my car was a writeoff but remarkably I got away with some relatively minor injuries (banged my left knee/wrist/rib pretty good) and the other driver wasn't injured at all. I had to wear a knee brace initially, and my wrist and fingers were virtually imobile (lotta pain too the first night aye carumba).. nothing broken or fractured, which was darned good news. It's been a much busier week than I would've liked it to be given everything, but got my much needed beauty rest whenever I could. been healing remarkably well, getting around without the knee brace/walking stick without too much hassle; swelling has gone down considerably too. The arm is fully mobile again, no pain at all really. fruit, rest and water does a body good I guess.
Then there was last night.. I almost didn't make it to last night's class due to all the snow here yesterday, the rental car I had doesn't have snow tires, the car got stuck on the road just outside the driveway with 2 inches of snow on the ground (the new ford focus SUCKS for winter driving lol).. and I couldn't make it up a big hill on the way home last night even after it had been plowed, had to have a snow plow driving rescue me from a snow bank also, so I took the dang car back to the rental place, not much use really in this weather. might be time to move somewhere warmer and buy a bike :)
anyhow, last week's class I talked about food combining (including how to properly combine non-lfrv fare according to Shelton), transitioning to a raw/plant based diet, and the evidence that a plant based diet makes you live longer (including the cultures referenced in 'healthy at 100' and 'the china study').. This week it was nutrition and the brain (specifically how lfrv/plant based diet helps improve mental function, mood, and seems to be very effective at treating psychological disorders) and the wonders of greens. Folks are still loving everything so far. Made a spinach/banana/date green smoothie before class and did a demo for a sample savory veggie stew/blended salad, both of which were hits. Looks like I may have sold my first vitamix as an affiliate too, woohoo!
Apparently people are visiting my eatfruitfeelgood website, so I'll have to post a substantive blog entry on there soon. I'll write about a dude who uses a low protein vegan diet to treat folks with severe mental/mood disorders like schizophrenia. Makes you wonder if there's anything a plant based diet can't help cure, don't it? :)
