Yes I do win the prize for longest blog title ever! Good one though eh? So what the fuck is this blog post all about? Good question. Would it surprise you to know that I actually don’t know what I’m about to write? Isn’t that cool? I have no idea, well, that’s a lie, I have some idea having just come up with that crazy title.
I’ll get on with it shall I?
I read this earlier (it’s Seneca by the way, yes, I am in to philosophy in a BIG GIGANTIC way) and it kinda reminded me of my message a bit so here goes:
“Let our aim be a way of life not diametrically opposed to, but better than that of the mob. Otherwise we shall repel and alienate the very people whose reform we desire; we shall make them reluctant to imitate us in anything for fear they may have to imitate us in everything“
What does this have to do with the price of fish?
Well, what I’m taking from it is that people that see some raw foodists might be a little bit put off the whole affair of eating or even being interested in raw food cos they think they’ll have to turn in to some weirdo hippy tree-hugging mentalist that sits cross-legged chanting and asking the universe for a magic blue canary to fight the lizard people and help you transcend to the next dimension.
We know this couldn’t be further from the truth. Apart from anything else you need a purple canary to do that shit.
I know this because some raw-foodists put me off. I put myself off sometimes. The husband reminded me the other day that I really am “fucking crazy” when I explained a new ritual for meditating I had…not going in to that here…it’s not dodgy or anything!
What’s my point?
My point is that there is no such thing as a stereotypical raw foodist. Sure, you might find that people that are naturally drawn to the health field share similar characteristics, but that doesn’t mean you have to BECOME something else. You can quite easily stay who you are and just eat some raw food. You can honest!
And you know what? even if there were just one stereotypical raw foodist I’m on a bloody mission to break some rules and show you that ANYONE can eat raw food, it’s not a club for a particular kind of person.
It is by no means a cult and you don’t have to subscribe to a whole new set of beliefs or dogma to engage in raw food eating.
So this is my message. Eat raw, stay normal. Let’s face it, there are plenty of us crazies about (yes, I am including myself and some of my friends – you know who you are!) to balance you out in your staying normal-ness.
What I’d like you to do is sign up to my sextastic newsletter and I’ll keep you in the loop about how to just eat raw food and be even more fantastically normal than you normally are. As long as you’re a little bit sassy that’s all that matters. And I know you are sassy cos you’re reading this and I’m sassy so by the very fact you’re reading my sassy words means that sassy-ness is pouring out your screen in to your brain. True.
So yeah sign up now. Or I’ll ask the red canary to pay you a visit and trust me, you do NOT want red canary shit going down!!
