I gave it my all – A for effort

Well…a lot has changed since my last post. As you all aware most of us are under lock down due to the covid-19 pandemic. It’s a bit ridiculous to think I could carry on the raw till 4 challenge for the rest of the month when I can’t really get to the grocery store and even if I could our grocery stores are wiped out of many things right now, including raw foods!

I did give it my all though and felt great while doing so. I am not going to continue with any sort of food challenges for the rest of the month as it’s way too much pressure at this time – especially for my mental health and anxiety.

I am so tired of seeing all the self righteous posts about how any sort of diet or healthy lifestyle will keep you save from getting this virus. It’s wildly inappropriate to spread such misinformation. Vegans, raw foodists, keto dieters, ANYONE AND EVERYONE – nobody is immune from this. Of course, eating a balanced and “healthy” diet year round will help to boost your immune system but that’s about it.

Wash your hands, practice social distancing, tend to your mental health and keep safe during this uncertain time.

With that being said – here is my A for effort for the month – in pictures 🙂

First time trying mangosteen – tangy and floral
Lots of mangos!
Lots of celery!
Fresh juiced blood orange juice
This is just one of many cooked meals for dinner which involved potato!
Simple way to make potato wedges with no or less oil
Simplicity!

My first hot breakfast (oats with banana and peanut butter) photo taken on my new samsung phone! This is so comforting and will be a go too in the next few weeks.

Looking back at all of the photos, I feel pretty good about my choices for most of the month 🙂

Please take good care of yourselves, until next time!

High Vibe

Hello and happy Friday.

In such a good mental state lately and thought I would pop in to say hi!

Filling myself with lots of high vibe, nourishing and living foods! I definitely think this helps with keeping the high vibes flowing.
