Food is close to our hearts

I have found that it can be tricky discussing what we eat – I have found that the subject touches peoples values, beliefs, culture, family and personal choices – it can be a sensitive subject much like discussing politics or religion. But it needn’t be this way! We simply have to lighten up when it comes to food. I personally thrive when I eat a plentiful diet that makes me feel vibrant, healthful and alive!

Going Raw

While transitioning towards a more plant based raw diet your own options will vary depending on your health, your goals and your current way of eating. I recommend that you do not get fixated on any rules in your early days of raw. Just start eating more plants and be happy. Moving towards my present eating habits took me more than 7 years of exploring what works for my body.

Eat plentifully

What I love about eating plant based high raw is that you don’t have to worry too much about calories. The secret is to eat plentifully so that your body feels alive, nourished and well. Taking care not to be eating too ‘gourmet’ with lots of heavy nut based dishes. I just go crazy healthy when I am exploring living raw plant based ingredients with organic herbs and medicinal foods.

SOME OF MY FAVOURITE DISHES

I went raw for a year

I lost 120lbs with a juicy raw diet. And looking back it wasn’t difficult but firstly what I had to do was clean the system. I had to detox. I did regular juice fasts then decided to go raw for a year. It changed my health and my life. I’m not 100% raw anymore but do regular juice cleanses, juice daily and eat a high raw (mostly) vegan* diet. *I choose to consume bee products for their powerful benefits to my health.

My daily diet

My aim: At least 1.5 litres of ph filtered water * At least a pint of green water (see blog for recipe) * At least one green juice (see blog for recipes) *At least one raw main meal using super-foods, some soaked nuts, seeds and sprouts as well as oodles of veggies and greens (see blog for recipes) *At least two pieces of fruit (on top of any juices) *At least one portion of sea vegetables (whether in powder or solid form in salads) * Medicinal mushroom lattes such as reishi & chaga (see blog for recipes).

My eating choices

These eating choices work for me. In the evening I might also have some cooked potatoes or steamed vegetables aswell as other lightly cooked and unprocessed foods from time to time. My approach to eating is loaded with all the nutrition that my body needs including essential proteins, amino acids and B vitamins. I never beat myself up for what I eat. If I enjoy it then it’s GOOD FOR ME!

And on some days, I just have a bag of chips or schnaffle a pizza. I try to keep life simple & not worry too much about food anymore.

I BLOG LOTS OF RECIPES AND ALWAYS EAT MY CREATIONS!

I can’t wait to spend time sharing my ‘in the zone’ plantbased medicine food with my retreaters over the coming weeks. 
Can’t join us? Get turmeric & green smoothies in you. Amla. Spirulina. Moringa. All the superfoods pinch by pinch. Good water. Greens. Fruits. Liver tonics. All the greens n leafy veggies. You don’t need to become vegan or 100% anything. Just eat less crap and more healing foods. 
Where’s that bag of superfoods you bought from the shop and never used? Hidden away. Where’s the blender? Collecting dust already. What happened to a daily GREEN smoothie with a bit of fruit in it?! Detoxifying the system from meds, stress, drugs, alcohol, modern life and non healing foods (aka a regular diet) helps switch the body’s self healing mechanisms back on. If your body is in a healing crisis right now then you need the right nutrition of organic Ayurvedic foods to support this process. ‘Healthy’ meat n veg meals, as lovely and nutritious as they are for others body’s, might not be helpful in your current situation. 
You need truly healing foods to replace your medicine, stress etc. But you won’t truly feel it until you actually experience it & do it. I came off my medication (metformin, tranexamic acid and more) and reversed my own healing crisis. Which prompted me to do what I do now. I reversed a condition that doctors told me was only treatable with meds (chronic PCOS): that had me off my box and constantly on the loo. They said it was either that or a hysterectomy. But I knew there was another way. 
I’m no angel with my eating habits now but I’m off my own meds. Reversed chronic disease. And switched my body’s healing mechanisms back on so that even now if I eat foods not from my regular healing pantry my body can cope with it - from a healing perspective. Because my foundation diet is very good, plantbased, green and healing. 
Yes I’m a lazy twat and haven’t done any exercise or looked after my weight for ages and I LOVE joining my inner circle with eating things like toast (yum!) pizza and crisps. Bring it on. Life is short. It’s why I run bootcamps. To press RESET. 
When you’re ready to meet me in that space. You’ll be amazed what FOOD can do 4u 💕
