Raw Food is Important

Raw food is an important part of our diet. I venture to say, the more raw food, the better.  People originally lived in tropical climates and ate the foods that were abundant in that climate. As people moved to temperate and colder climates, man began to use fire to cook his food.  It can be argued that this was harmful to his health.

The pioneers in Natural Hygiene recognized that eating as much raw food as possible was beneficial to themselves and their clients.  Just like now, the medical profession and people that loved gourmet foods looked down on the simple, natural diet.  Even today, we hear people refer to a healthy diet as "rabbit food".

The raw food diet is considered to be a modern day movement, but we can look back in history and find records of people that advocated a diet similar to what Natural Hygienists teach today. In my Lifestyle Consultants course we learned that 5000 years ago there was a prophet in Persia named Zoroaster who taught his followers to eat a simple diet of fruits, nuts, vegetables, milk and sprouted grains. 4000 years ago the Rig-Vedas in India and the Essenes in Israel advocated the same.

Food prep for the day:
Lemongrass tea.
Green Smoothie (herbs from the garden, 2 bananas, 1/4 papaya, 1/4 pineapple, 2 scoops of chia seeds, 1 cup frozen wild blueberries, 1 cup frozen mixed fruit, water)

Lunch: Green smoothie; apple; orange; 1/2 avocado; almonds

Got a 30 minute sunbath after lunch.
I am reading Medical Medium by Anthony William on my Kindle. While sunbathing, I put it on the robot voice and let it read to me.

Dinner: Chopped salad from Subway (lettuce, tomato, spinach, cucumber, onion, bell pepper, banana pepper); 1/2 avocado added to the salad at home; leftover salsa also added to the salad; sauerkraut; walnuts
Chopped Salad from Subway

Avocado for salad - Used half

I am still going through a bit of a healing crisis, so decided to go to Subway to pick up a salad. Besides, I am out of lettuce at home.

To health and happiness.
