I just unfollowed 16 people because I will finally start posting on my raw food blog. I will re-follow the people I unfollowed with my new blog instead. On this blog I will no longer post as much fruit and health related stuff, so if the only reason you follow me is because I’m into raw food, I suggest you follow my NEW HEALTH BLOG instead. I will still post health, veganism and food related stuff on here, just not as much. On my new blog I will only post raw food posts/pictures/recipes. No cooked vegan food or vegan desserts like ice cream. Because my goal is to be 100% raw. Though I have a feeling I will never be 100% raw. But at least I will be vegan and will try to be, like, 95% raw, allowing myself oat ice cream, alcohol, tofu etc. if I really want it.
My “second mom” or whatever is having health issues and recently had knee surgery, and she has arthritis, migraines and eczema. My first thought always is “Stop eating meat! And stop consuming DAIRY!”. Milk is cancer in a glass. Her sister has had breast cancer and I believe her diet is to blame. And her other sister’s husband died of cancer.
Honestly, I think going vegan would solve pretty much everything for everybody. People would have good health and the environment wouldn’t suffer and the animals would be happy. Harmony.
Type “John McDougall” into youtube and watch his lectures. Also Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Doug Lisle. Listen to the truth and make the right choice if you haven’t already.
For sure the best food pyramid around ;)
Thinking of starting a health and fitness blog since I’m starting a 100% raw vegan diet on thursday. HIGH CALORIE, HIGH CARB, HIGH SUGAR! Low fat. No more cooked meals whatsoever. Not even boiled potatoes. Btw, a tip for everyone eating a lot of starchy potatoes - eat them cold! Whenever I eat hot potatoes I get stomach cramps, headaches and feel nauseous, maybe that’s just me, but I found that when I eat the potatoes cold, I feel much better, even if I eat like 1 kilo in one sitting!
My last cooked vegan meal tomorrow will be a huge salad with falafels and for dessert I’m having vanilla oat ice cream with cloudberry jelly. And I’ll also make sure to eat a ton of sauerkraut since that’s one of my favorite foods ever. Very salty, but high in vitamin C, so that’s good!
Anyway, I’m planning to be 100% raw vegan (and sober :P) for at least 10 weeks. On new years eve I’ll definitely be drinking a whole lot of vodka… And perhaps eat a vegan burger or something. Then I’ll go back to HCLF raw vegan on january 1st and try to actually STAY that way for life! And I’ll only drink alcohol on special occasions like birthdays, new years eve etc.
Let’s face it; I will never stop drinking completely simply because being drunk is fun! Yes, I often feel like shit after (and sometimes during), but it’s still worth it to me. Why live a “perfect, healthy, boring” life just to die when you’re over 100 years old? Imagine laying on your death bed, remembering the fun you had when you were young.. regretting things you didn’t do, all the whiskey you turned down, sitting there sober while your friends were drinking and having fun. “yes, my lifestyle was so healthy, I got to live for so looooong..” Everyone’s different, but me, I don’t even want to have kids, so there’s no point in living ‘til I’m really old. And come on! Who the hell chooses to be sober on new years eve for example? That’s just stupid. Drinking a few times a year is not gonna harm you much if you’re leading a healthy lifestyle overall.
End of rant :P
Protein shakes disgust me because they’re proof of how blind and stupid most people are. They’re brainwashed and can’t think for themselves. They don’t even try to dig deeper and educate themselves. Or simply just do what feels natural. The simplest, smartest thing you can do, is learn to listen to your body.
Also, you should READ THIS.
Mind full, or Mindful?
This weekend was really nice. Spent some time with my brother. Yesterday we went to see Brave in 3D. I really liked it, though it made me cry a ton :P Every Disney movie is like that!
In the evening I went to see my boyfriend, which was great. Things are better now than they were last weekend and the weekend before that. It was nothing really, I just had this weird feeling in my gut or something, and there was some kind of tension in the air, and apparently he felt the same. We tried to talk about it and come up with something we could do to fix it, but we couldn’t, cause we didn’t even know what was wrong! But now things are back to normal, I think. Very odd. We never even fight, so I don’t know what the hell it was.
Today I swam 3000 m. My swimming-pass-card-thing expires in two weeks and it makes me very sad :( Need to buy a new one for a whole year, but my money situation is complicated. Hopefully this too will sort itself out soon.
Been eating a ton of fruity carbs. Like today I ate 9 small bananas and 1266 calories worth of dates blended with water and cinnamon. I also had 3 kiwis for a little snack. These three foods are the best. They’ve become a staple in my raw food diet. Lots of carbs and fiber, very little fat and the dates are a big help when it comes to getting enough calories so I don’t starve. Bananas contain B6, manganese and potassium and I make sure to eat kiwi everyday for the vitamin C and vitamin K. 1 single kiwi contains 100% RDI of vitamin C.
It’s raining again! Yay :D And I just came home. When I was swimming the sun was out, which was perfect.
At one point today we were 14 people in the pool and it was actually really fun! Huuuge waves and people splashing water everywhere :P I love the sound of water… And since there were so many people, it was easy to compete with everyone without it being obvious :P I like to push myself. Even though I only swam 3300 m, it was a good workout because I swam fast and used different strokes. I could easily have swam my 4000 m, perhaps even more, if only people didn’t talk to me. There were so many people I knew there. Yet another reason not to swim in the afternoon. Getting up at 5.30 am tomorrow morning. And at 10 am I have a job interview to go to. Fingers crossed.
Finally got to eat some strawberries for the first time this year. Juuuicyyy. Still eating all raw and it’s day 4. It’s much easier than it seems because there are so many delicious foods out there which are super filling and so the hard part is getting enough calories. That’s why dates and bananas are so important.
