Aloha Beautiful People :)
I feel the time has come to jump in, no more transition, no more comprimise, no more slipping, etc etc.. 100% Live, fresh, raw, organic, whole, natural...
I have been Fruitarian before when I was living in New Guinea, total Tropical Fruit Paradise, it was great. However now I live in what is called a Mediterainan Climate, or Warm Temperate, so the fruit is not so prolific particularily on my land.. I'm VegAquarian ATM, drink beer on occasions and smoke pot occasionally too, all of which I want to change for good come 2012 in a couple days. But basically I eat 95% Organic have a fresh Garden salad each day, eat fruit that is available and growing off the tree and, make smoothies -coconut/cocoa/ricemilk, and have been eating eggs also.. So yea lots to drop, lots to take up, I am excited about replacing the negatives with beautiful positives and the beautiful Fruitarian life I remember so well.
I really don't like buying loads of fruit from the Organic shop because it's energy is already depleted from travel/storage and also the energy behind most of it involves money/machines, so I'm in the process of growing my own Food Forest. In the meantime I am growing fast growing things like salads, tomato's, melons, pumpkins, capsicum, corn, herbs etc I plant fruit trees and rainforest trees amongst it all becuase they take time to mature and by the time they are ready the garden has provided valuable food and created a lush humus rich environment for the tree. You can get an idea of what I'm doing at my blog in progress nohasark.com.au
In most Western places this lifestyle must cost quite a bit. Organic Fruit here in Australia is pretty expensive and I have seen what others eat on here and it's alot. I Don't eat much ATM maybe 1 meal a day, the rest of the day I munch in the garden, drink water, smoothie, but basically not much, although I work in the garden about 10hrs a day. I believe most of our energy comes from the Sun, Prana if you like, so I feel that is where I get most of my energy. However reading the amounts suggested here and the monitoring required to reach certain amounts of calories each day through fruit I realise that I need to eat way more. I do want to eat more and realise I need to, I'm a little underweight, although I'm strong, but not as athletic as I should be. So yea I guess I'm after some advice. Do I really need to eat so much? Or should I just go by my body/spririt instead of the monitoring with Cronometer etc..
I would like to do a regular bog post that allows me to share my journey and gain support and encouragement, and most importantly it will keep me accountable because it is far too easy for me to slip if no one is watching, so I want to share, be honest and most importantly stick with it..
Back to the Garden I grow :)
Love n Light
