Going Camping

Ever want to ask raw foodies how it is they can live off just fruits and veggies? Well, sometimes I bet they wonder how you live off processed foods. It goes the same way. I wonder how I made it on a diet like that. No one likes to feel tired all the time. I know I didn’t. I also didn’t like having stomach aches constantly. By switching to a diet full of real, living fruits and vegetables, some of your problems you blame on stress and work can go away. Hmm.. makes you think, right?

I haven’t eaten dinner yet. We’re heading out to go camping soon, but we’re going to juice before we leave and just eat more fruit. Then I’ll be eating fruit for the next two days or at least until we come back from camping on Sunday. It shall be interesting! I’ll try to keep track of things, but don’t expect much. I plan very much to stay in the present while enjoying nature to its fullest. Have a great weekend!
Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

  1. I love these posts! You really are so motivational! I went to the store today and bought a bunch of bananas. And I was running late, so I didn't make my morning shake like I have been doing. I was worried I would be tired all day because the shake always gives me energy. But you're right! I was surprised how much energy I had from 3 large bananas!

    Have fun camping!

    Oh! And a question, I have always thought sweet potatoes were better than regular ones. Is there a reason you eat the standard ones instead?

  2. What shake do you usually make? I'm glad you ate bananas and got some energy! It's really crazy, but if you can keep eating those bananas, the energy sticks around. Incredible! :o)

    Sweet potatoes are good for you too! We just are able to buy those big 10-pound bag of regular potatoes for $1 so we make lots of those. Plus, my husband makes BOMB baked potatoes. So eat either one if you'd like!! :o)
