I think I overdid the sugar. There has been all together too much of it in my life lately and frankly, I think it is partly to blame for my low energy levels. With Christmas over and most of the Christmas sweets eaten or given away, it’s time to clean up house.
Luckily, Santa/my mom and dad brought me a stack of fun books that get my wellness engines revving. I’m loaded with nutritious vegan recipes for all occasions and we’re gearing up (Josh and I) for a month of exploring rawness. We’ve been wanting to give it a try for a while and with new year right around the corner, we thought we’d challenge ourselves to something new for the month of January.
I love cooked food but one of the downsides of roasting up veggies is that they lose some of their nutrients. Food also becomes more acidic when its cooked and I’m working on balanced pH for optimal health. I’ll blog about our adventure along the way and I would love to hear from you. Please send any raw recipes you’ve tried and liked this way!
In January, I’ll also be:
- learning how to sprout! Can’t wait to share!
- practicing dry brushing-– a practice of brushing the skin to get rid of dead skin and cleanse the lymphatic system (among other things like reduce cellulite–got your attention now?)
- Green smoothies and juice–I had a smoothie pretty much every day this past summer. It was hot and humid in Seoul and after a sweaty run, I’d go to work with the blender. My smoothies mostly consisted of fruit, hemp protein, and flax. In January, I want to experiment with more greenness in my smoothies. Bring on the chlorophyll.
