The Many Misadventures of an Aspiring Raw-Foodist

The purpose of this blog is to give you a realistic view of the transition to a raw vegan life and the restoration of health. It isn't always easy. I don't always feel amazing. But in the end it is worth it. My hope is that I can inspire others to make positive changes in their own lives.


It's in the Mix

Check out the photo. This is the miracle of proper food combining. In the first photo, which was taken about 3-4 weeks ago, I was helpless, bloated, uncomfortable… pretty much fat around the middle and miserable and I had no clue why. I’ve been trying to figure this out for over a decade. The past few weeks I’ve been (generally) following basic food combining principals, as suggested by Natalia Rose, and just look what it’s done for me! I really am so excited.
Starting Sunday I will be doing Natalia’s Detox for Women yeast cleanse (the intense systemic one). I will be following the systemic cleanse for 26 days (sandwiching it in between my son’s birthday and Christmas Eve when we arrive in D.C. to visit family, after which point I will be switching to the standard cleanse). The systemic cleanse involves eating only vegetables (raw and cooked), organic free-range eggs, and raw goat’s cheese. When I switch to the standard cleanse I will also be eating small amounts of low sugar fruits. I’m not sure how long I will do that for, I plan to just see how I feel. I would like to eat that way for the most part for a very long time, but we are planning on conceiving baby #4 in late winter so I will have to roll with that. Anyway, as far as the cleanse goes there will be updates and photos to come. I’m excited. I feel SO ready for this cleanse. I’ve been waiting over a month for the chance to do it and I really think my body will feel very happy once I get into it and past the initial detox symptoms. During this cleanse I will be taking coconut oil (as an antifungal), Renew Life Ultimate Flora Critical Care 50 Billion (probiotic) and Herbal Answers Aloe Force (raw aloe vera gel, for colon cleansing and digestive tract ease). I will be dry brushing, rebounding, getting as much sun and fresh air as possible in a St. Louis winter, doing enemas, and experiencing my first colon hydrotherapy treatments. Wish me luck!
