A bit over a week ago I found this site. 30 bananas a day?! Tell me you're pulling my toe... :0 Holy diver, people are eating this diet of simple, vibrant abundance and thriving as human beings! You have got my attention.
Backin' it up a bit
For the past year+ my diet has been primarily vegan, primary raw, primarily healthy, primarily. But there was still dairy, eggs, refined sugar, cooked foodage and occassionally some processed nonsense at social gatherings. My heart, body and intution would chorus in, "That is not food designed for your beautiful human body." "Well, you haven't expirienced one of those in years (the sensation of engaing in new/long had expiriences is me kryptonite, even if I know I'm not that into it). Partaketh in the festivies. Accept the gift being given to you and be one with the community" my mind would rationalize. At other times I'd be confronted by my own socially conditioned undertones, resignating uncomfortably somewhere within the inner corridors of "reason".
-"You need the protien provided by eggs/ tons of nuts"-
-"It's vegan and/or raw so that means it's healthier than the conventional version"-
While yes, there would be a degree of truth behind some of the rationalizing, deep down I knew it was all bologna. And I'm sure we all know what bologna is made up of, lies and slader!
Keepin' it Real
I was tired of decieving myself. All I ask from anybody is to be real. And how can I ask anything of anybody if I'm not willing to do it mysef. You can convince yourself of any possible thing that you want. You'd be suprised what the mind is capable of. I have decided to be a real person, eating real food and sharing it all with a real world.
So let's do thing this, yeah?
My journey through my relationship with food, health, and natural, simple living is constantly evolving like a damn pokemon, suprising myself with the growth of my knowledge and possiblities. I am here to document my journey from a self denied, food abusing person unwilling to let go and live in her truth to a person who drops deeper and deeper everyday into her intution, truth, compassion and higher vibrations. A journey dedicated to optimal human health, holistic healing and eating similarly to how we would eat out in the wild *mrowr!*. I am here to keep a journal for my own personal recollection and hopefully offer some real, raw support, inspiration and commnity.
I have been inspired by so many of you. Thank you for your courage. Blessed be your bananas.
