So I was sitting eating my dinner the other night. I use the word “dinner” in its loosest possible sense of course. I did my usual ‘blend a bunch of stuff and pour over a different bunch of stuff’. Hey, that IS dinner. Don’t judge.
I’m munching away on my pile of goo mixed with stuff (and enjoying it very much I might add) and thinking to myself: MY GODS THIS IS FUCKING EASY.
Eating raw food is easy.
Eating this healthy is EASY. Almost too easy.
What’s all the fucking fuss about?
Now, you might think well, Emma, you’ve been on your raw food journey for a eleventy billion years now, no wonder you find it so easy.
And you’d be right.
But also totally wrong.
You see, only a few months ago, I was sitting at my Mum’s house, eating whatever was put in front of me (Mum’s insist on feeding you), not a green smoothie in sight and thinking to myself…
Eating raw food is difficult.
Why amn’t I eating more raw food than this?
Why am I eating this sodding biscuit?
Where the fuck are all the cucumbers?
And so you see my point. That was not that long ago. And now I’m back to finding it easy. This isn’t up and down so much as round and round.
Cyclical. It’s all cyclical, baby!
And we forget. When it’s going amazing we forget the hardship. When we’re in the midst of the hardship we forget the ease.
But I’m going to let you in to a secret…
This is par for the course.
This IS the raw food journey.
Round and round and round we go, where it stops nobody knows and quite frankly we’re all having way too much fun and feeling a little dizzy to even care…
I want to remind you that if you’re in raw food heaven now, feeling all blissed out with a piece-of-piss attitude then NOW is the time to honour the times when you felt irritated, frustrated and not at all at peace with where you were at.
If you’re in raw food hell right now, so much so that if anyone mentions green smoothie you’re going to kick them hard in the shin, then remember the cyclical nature of the raw food journey.
Even if you’re saying to yourself, well, i’ve never had the good bit, remember that the little things you do, like having a bit of salad here and there…the odd smoothie…the bit of raw chocolate… these are the good things and it builds and it builds and it builds. If I had to draw it, which, please don’t make me do because even drawing a stick man fills me with dread, it’d look kinda like this sexy little diagram.
So I’m calling this The Raw Food Tornado Model Type Thing
You get me?
