Stay Encouraged

June 25, 2009 at 2:47 am 6 comments

One of the best ways to maintain excitment about getting healthy and staying on track is to fill your mind with encouragement. I’m so thankful for the blogosphere in that respect…I am able to “meet” up with those encouragers on a daily basis and get recharged! Here are two of my favorites right now:

The Renegade Health Show – Kevin and Annmarie
Kevin and Annmarie are so genuine, knowledgeable, and funny πŸ™‚ I love watching their rhTV show every day and seeing what kind of craziness they have been up to. Their shows are extremely varied in topic, and always informational. My favorite guest on their show lately is this fabulous blonde woman named Solla. Be sure to check her out on today’s show…she’s so great! She’s also in many of Matt Monarch’s videos (see below) as well…because she was one of the raw chefs for his wedding.

I know for a fact that Kevin and Annmarie are the real deal…because we’ve met them! They bought our RV and are using it on their nationwide tour right now. It has affectionately been nicknamed “The Kale Whale”. They will often air their show from the inside of the RV, so you might recognize some things! We spent a day with them in Bozeman (teaching them how to run the RV) and can’t wait to see them again. They are truly inspiring.

I would highly recommend Kevin’s new book, “High Raw“. It’s what launched me back into my raw-ness after Lucy was born. I love Kevin’s approach…and this book can help you no matter where you are in your journey. He dispels so many myths about eating raw and the book is full of great info. Right now he is giving away the eBook for FREE!! So get over there and download it. I also bought the “hard copy” and have already loaned it out to my dad!

Raw Food World – Matt and Angela
I’ve followed Matt’s blog for awhile, but just recently started watching his videos on a regular basis. He just married Angela Stokes over the weekend…and in the process hosted a fabulous raw festival as well! Their videos are entertaining and informative…they always interview interesting people! His hair is crazy out of control as well…I love it πŸ™‚ Both Matt and Angela have really neat stories about coming to raw food.

Check them out and stay encouraged!

    Hey Sara,

    I am definitely interested in alternative eating however, I have pretty significant food allergies. Have you heard of any natural ways to eliminate food allergies? I am allergic to almost ALL fruits and many uncooked vegetables. I don’t have anaphylactic responses but don’t want to push my body’s limit and then be in big trouble. I can eat any cooked fruit (isn’t that weird?) but the raw fruit, which is the yummiest, makes me itchy and miserable for a few hours after I eat it! Bummer! It makes eating healthy fruits and veggies really difficult. I’ve been to an allergist before but wondering if you’ve heard anything about natural options for allergy relief. I do have access to a Christian chiropractic clinic who claims allergy relief… I’m a bit skeptical. Thought you might have an opinion. Thanks!

    I’m so sorry! That must be really awful. I have heard of that before, but don’t really have an answer. I know that my SEASONAL allergies go away when I eat raw…and I know that many other allergies can go away when eating raw…

    Not sure about this one though. Sorry I can’t be of more help. I would definitely check out the chiropractor!!

    hi Sara,
    i was curious to know how you get the right amount of protein, calcium and iron in your daily diet

    im a vegetarian and sometimes worry that im not getting the right amount of those…..

    so i would love to know what food you eat to supplement your body with those nutrient.

    thanks a lot!

    I love those 2 couples, too. So fun!

    I’m just starting the raw journey but as a Christ follower I find it discouraging when so many raw food sites etc are sort of the opposite of me spiritually. How do you deal with that?

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
