I was reading a friends blog ( http://www.smalltimecook.com/ ) the other day and she mentioned a documentary called “Food Matters”. I was intrigued so I went to the site and downloaded the movie. If you haven’t seen it…you must. It does a brilliant job explaining how important it is to eat right- it’s true “you are what you eat”.
I have always been a relatively healthy eater. “Healthy eater” as in health conscious about what I put in my body. I always skip the bread and try to keep my processed foods to a minimum. But, I definitely have my weaknesses. I love menchies frozen yogurt. I can easily eat a box of cheddar bunnies. My day doesn’t start unless there is a latte involved and I love a glass of wine. Oh did I mention I also love meat and cheese?
But, after watching the film I have decided to make a bold move. I am embarking on a 5 day raw vegan cleanse. An experiment of sorts. What will I feel like after 5 days of eating only things that nourish me? What will I feel like after removing all the toxins from my body and only eating raw organic foods?
You may wonder why I am writing about a cleanse on an adventure/ travel blog but the fact that I won’t be having caffeine for 5 days is a HUGE adventure for me. That alone could lead to problems and a out-of-body experience for me.
Keep you posted about the results and do yourself a favor and check out the documentary!
