So I’ve just realised that next month is my 5 year raw food anniversary. I’d say rawniversary but that would make me a prize loon, worthy of a hefty kick in the shin.
So yeah, five whole ENGLISH years. Whatta ride!
I guess I figured the purpose of this post would be to give you the benefit of my experience, but hell, every post I write is doing that. Sometimes.
Then I thought, well, I could tell you about how my diet has evolved since I first started out all those moons ago. But in truth, what I eat changes month to month to month so not only would that be incredibly dull for everyone concerned, it’d also be the longest blog post in the multiverse and quite frankly, you and I have much better things to do with our time.
So perhaps I’ll just tell you that embarking on this journey has been the single most life-changing decision I’ve ever made.
It’s brought inspirational people in to my awareness, teachers that I’ve learned a great deal from.
It’s opened me up to intuitive eating. To trusting myself. To knowing that only I can provide the awareness around what my body needs. Only I can say what is right for me.
It’s inspired me to write books about how to overcome these challenges.
It’s made a huge difference to my life and the lives of the people around me.
I’ve been the change, seen the change and rocked it with a green smoothie moustache and cacao-fuelled banter.
I’ve thrown away the rule book, the dogma and the attitude.
I’ve learned that the real freedom is freedom from ideology and that I really shouldn’t eat cacao after 3pm.
It’s been a personal evolution of mind, body and soul.
The body knows no fixed rules.
It’s an ongoing journey.
I’m not ‘there’ yet. Because there is no ‘there’. Only here and now.
It never stops.
I love my journey so far.
I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Here’s to another 5 years! Chin! Chin!
To celebrate my 5 years I’m throwing another ‘pay what the hell you want‘ sale on the RFS website. Follow this ancient link (ignore what it says about 24 hours, the deal’s open for 5 ENGLISH days!!), pay what you want and the shizzle is YOURS. Awesome.
