Amazing Enchiladas

So today I finally have mustered up the energy to talk about my last few days experience at Living Light. All i can say is that im super sad and that is why it has taken me so long to even think about writing to ya'll. Okay so you just saw a synopsis of my last few days in Fort Bragg, from enchiladas to diplomas. It was so hard to leave everyone, i just tried to pretend that i would be back soon and everyone would still be there. But the reality has sunk in, I will not be back there with all the same people, because we are dispersed all around the world, and just like I leave my family in Jersey, I am stuck leaving yet again another family.

Yes I feel burdened with sadness, but the one thing this course has left me with was the euphoric feeling of love and happiness. So i had a little cry one night when a friend, Andree, played us a song called Moments she had written about her grandfather. It was really touching and it was so true: Why don't these moments ever last? Well they do in a way, sort of staying in our memories for a little while, but the sad part is when they start to fade. So im going to stock up on B12 so that my memory doesn't diminish too much!

Well i suppose that i should get over the sadness that has encumbered me and start to tell you about how i felt after being on the raw food diet for 3 weeks: It was incredible, my weight i believe stayed the same, i might have even gained 2 pounds, its hard to say since i used different scales. But I've been feeling amazing, I'm not as exhausted as i use to be, my mind feels clear, and my hair is curlier and healthier (the curls could be a by product of the 3 weeks of straight rain), my skin is glowing, and to be completely honest i feel beautiful, something i know i should have felt a long time ago, but now i really feel it! Russell has always told me how "special and beautiful" i am but i never believed him before now.

So all in all i think that going raw is an incredible amazing life choice, however it does take a lot of commitment and passion and love. So if you want the energy and euphoria that surrounded me these past few weeks i would totally recommend trying to incorporate 90% raw foods into your diet! Thats all for now, i will probably edit this and add more tomorrow!

Peace Love and Vegetables!
