Well the raw high keeps on rolling today. I feel like I have so much energy and my mind feels so clear. I was on my walk today and I thought about how natural eating raw is and feels. I read an article the other day about a woman who was, I believe 75 and has been raw for 50 years or so and she said something so simple but yet so profound - she said "humans are the only species on the planet that cook their food" and I felt immediately awe struck by the truth of that statement. . .and it got me thinking today about how misguided our species is, how misinformation about what and how we should eat to be healthy is all just a bunch of lies. I took a look at my kitchen today with new eyes and thought to myself, what is all this crap for, the stove, the toaster oven, the coffee pot, the recipe books? How did humans mess it up so much? Why do I need a recipe with 18 different steps, with 20 different ingredients and cook for x amount of hours when I can simple peel a piece a fruit and eat it? Fresh fruits and veggies is the fastest fast food you will ever find, no drive thru required. I remeber growing up and being forced to drink a glass of milk with dinner each day and intrinsically I hated it. And I also disliked meat, it was awful to chew, I thought it tasted gross, it was gross to look at but my mother thought these things were "healthy" and she was well meaning but just grossly misinformed, by the Canadian Food Guide. It was like my body knew what type of food it wanted and I was forced to ingest a diet that is not only cruel but not what I am biologically designed to eat. And I payed the price, constipation, bloating, weight gain, mood swings, body aches and you name it. And then when I went vegan, thanks mostly to finding Freelee's videos, I instantly knew this was how I was designed biologically to be. It was like a light switch went off, I felt better almost immediately. There was such Truth in it, a truth that I had never quite felt before - And now this raw way of life that I have embraced feels like I am truly coming home, eating exactly they way I was created to eat. Thanks Freelee!
