As I plan my Thanksgiving Menu, I am reminded about the choices that we all make and the way a habit can so deeply become engrained into our daily lives.
In a family of four, I am the only one who has really embraced the power of a raw food lifestyle. Although I vary in the degree of raw % on a daily basis, my intent is clear to incorporate cleaner food choices for myself and my family into everything that I make. Since we are having company this holiday, and they each have very traditional SAD diets, I have decided to gently present RAW choices that are delicious and simple so everyone can enjoy the benefits without feeling the pressure of eating what the hostess prepares even if they don’t like it. That’s really the joy of Raw preparation. Pretty much everyone likes the ingredients, but they have never tried them together in a dish that hasn’t been cooked. For example, cooked carrots,peas and beans. Many people eat them cooked, but haven’t had the pleasure of a fresh sweet crunchy pea. Make selections this holiday that will showcase the simplicity of Raw and give your company a suprise with the new twist on traditional dishes, or add in a new dish like Matt Amsden’s cauliflower couscous, or fresh cranberry salad.
Tell me about your Raw Thanksgiving Menu.
It all depends upon your state of mind. I really feel that if you want something bad enough, you can make it happen. The same holds true for your health. It all begins with your STATE OF MIND. Do you want to create a healthy body? If so, you need to start with a healthy mind.
This includes clearing out and removing the toxins from your life. Your thoughts, created by your environment, friends, co-workers, workplace, career, spouse, kids, etc. Every time something happens that energetically doesn’t “Feel” good to you, how do you react to it? If you continually react to everything in your world that isn’t to your liking, your body will tense up and you will create stress within your body. I’m no doctor, but this is an easy prescription. Clear out the crap that is sucking the life right out of you. You may need some counseling to learn to let go of the things that are harming you most, but once you do it, you will look back at your deep intention and realize that you, and only you can make a change for the better. You have the right to say NO to the things that are controlling you. Do it today and as your mind becomes healthier, so will your body because you will be able to make better decisions.
