How are you doing in Denmark?
Thank you for your friendship, add, note and smiles:) Keep it up and enjoy all the little and big thing on natures path. It just keeps getting better and better. Peace and health, Jesse
Thanks for your very complimentary post :o) It was nice to hear from you.
There are some challenges being raw in Cumbria, as with many places further north in the UK. Namely that the organic and wholesale produce is more expensive and there is less selection. But if you're willing to make a few compromises here and there like buying non-organic and from supermarkets when the organic stuff isnt available then its easy enough :o)
I bet it must be cold in Denmark eating raw? You must have to keep very physically active?
I could get down to that scene. I remember a story related by raw model Anthony http://rawmodelcom.blogspot.com/
in which he recalled, back when he was eating a SAD diet, being unable to dance unless drunk. He was simply too self-conscious to release his creativity, I suppose. Now cleaned out physically, emotionally, etc, he can dance the night away joyously clear-headed and free.
I do indeed, though not as often as I would enjoy. I'm not much of clubbin' kind of guy. But I do sometimes take in an intro dance class at a local library. I even studied breaking at home from some vids and online sources (the required strength and agility impressed me greatly). Most often though, my workout warmups are almost a type of dance of kung fu limbering moves with music playing. Of course, I've been known to hop into an impromptu jig here and there too ;-)
Where do you find are the best places to simply dance without being assaulted by smoke, booze, etc?
Oh, just saw your comment. Thanks! Yes i love the pictures too, i wish we had these beaches in Holland.....the pics from the ocean are from the time that I was in Australia.
Being raw in Holland was tough until now, well maybe especially when you still are in transition. But recently it is going much easier, think I'm past the cravings now for good. The season helps a lot.
I live very close to our health food store and buy almost everything organic. The mangos are better non-organic which is a pity. At the moment we have wonderful water melons, not too big, very tasty and perfect for a 1 person's breakfast. The bananas are great too and there is a great variety of fruits in the store now - most of them I can't have :-( but there is much choice these days and the quality is very good.
My son just came back from Roskilde! He had a great time in Denmark.
I think now is the raw festival. Hope to go next time.
Love, Sita XX
Hej Isabella. Jeg kan desværre ikke komme til festivalen, øv! Jeg har på et tidspunkt været til en raw potluck i Kernehuset i Odense - kendet du stedet? Tror der sker lidt mere i Odense end hernede. Så jeg må jo selv sætte noget i gang....:)
At least your summer fruit selection sounds tasty. What's it like living on an island compared to the mainland? Here in AZ, we do have a few raw food potluck meetup groups, but I haven't attended yet. Right around the time I was feeling the need for such community, I also started questioning whether going to such gatherings with their assuredly gourmet raw offerings is in my best interest. Yeah, it's only one meal, but for me I still know its not optimal. I've not decided one way or the other for certain, but as you can see I haven't gone yet either! We all have at least one health achille's heel from our past indiscretions. Mine is skin that lets me know when I eat food that doesn't love me. I'm just getting used to enjoying typically clear skin and can't seem to often bring myself to tempt its favor with less-than-ideal treats regardless of how delicious. Not that that's much of a problem. Any raw-orientied people where you live?
A couple of weeks ago my family and I went to a local farm to pick peaches. After tasting one warm off the tree, I can now understand how somebody might just camp out under the branches until they're bare :-) We can't wait to get back soon and apricots and apples will ripen within just a couple more weeks. We also support farmers markets regularly, where we've been getting some melons and even some baby Thai bananas which even some experienced farmers say don't grow here. Oh well, guess they won't mind if I just eat them all then, eh? We also frequently receive berries and grapes from not exactly local, but still relatively close, Cali. Once watermelon becomes plentiful, I might just try to break my last year's record of an 8 day mono island. That was fun. How's the green scene in Denmark? Even if not raw, are there fellow healthy lifestylers about?
