Why cleanse? I was enjoying a meet-up with my favorite work ladies this morning and this question came up as I sipped my yerba mate and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice while they chowed down on sweet smelling pancakes and lattes. This was my response:
- Overall, I feel much better when I eat unprocessed foods, especially mostly raw - 100% raw. The more raw I consume, the better I feel. My body just happens to thrive on it.
- My energy levels have taken a dip recently and I know my body well enough to know that processed food has this effect on me. Actually, my body is letting me know in a few other ways that my nutrition is off: horrible monthly cramps, bruising, and dry skin patches.
I've been enjoying mega-smoothies, fresh juices & fruit, and had a delicious Live Taco Salad at Blossoming Lotus yesterday. I'm going to spend some quality time with my Vita-Mix and dehydrator making raw vegan treats this long weekend. Anyone else have kitchen marathons in their holiday plans?
Oh, yeah... I've switched my comments to disqus and as of now all of my past comments have disappeared, but I've been assured that they will reappear sometime in the next few days, after blogger & disqus have finished the importing process. Fingers crossed! I wanted disqus because it allows for a direct reply to specific comments.
