Feelin' Good

a piece of raw vegan cacao chocolate cake from Evolution Fast Food Restaurant - it was YUMMY!!!

Hey Sistahs!

I had to go to a business meeting last week and it had been with some folks who had not seen me in a while (since my juice fast) and they were really shocked at the difference. Even people who had not ever met me said that my skin looked so radiant and clear. Everyone wanted to know what I was doing...I told them juice fasting then a vegan diet.

I am not sure how some of us came to the point where we can not believe that we could live off of vegetables and fruits. I think many people believe they need meat to live but it really isn't true. I am not trying to be dogmatic but really you could live a healthy life being a vegan or even raw. Like any diet it requires a balance and some thought. I see the RESULTS of what I am doing and I KNOW that it works! I witnessed clearly with myself how quickly my body degenerated with the standard american diet (SAD) even after being vegetarian and vegan for so long, it did not take long to look tired and over weight.

I am optimistic that people want a change in their health - no one wants to be sick and tired ALL the time. A lot of what we consume determines whether we will walk in health or illness. I thought to myself this morning that I CHOOSE TO CARE - I choose to care about myself and love my body - by doing this I outwardly and inwardly express the wholeness of walking with the Divine. Each of us has to come to our own place of health. Yes, sacrifice may be involved - even I miss certain foods but inside I know that road of feeling unhealthy and I really don't ever want to go back.

Peace and Hugs,
Sis. Camara

I completely connected with this statement; and feel that is where I at right now. Im not a vegetarian but I have notice the less I eat the more energy and the better I feel.
