Jonell Francis and Hippocrates would get along just fine, I think. She spoke at last weekend's conference about her amazing journey of healing through food. For the last five or so years I've been off and on with raw food. But when I'm on I feel so fabulous! While I have trouble sticking to any one way of eating 100%, there are certain constants. I know that eliminating some things (meat, sugar, dairy) and replacing them with others (nuts, fruit smoothies, natural sweeteners etc.) always improves the way I feel. Lately I've been feeling sort of sluggish; we ran out of fresh spinach and I'm missing my morning boost. I think tomorrow will find me in the produce aisle, stocking up on goodies for green smoothies (check out my post at DesignMom) and fresh juice. It doesn't take much to get back on track and this sunny, summer weather has me feeling optimistic!
