So, latest read: The Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr. Kris Carr, definitely a new hero. A woman who was diagnosed with cancer at 31 and did everything within her power to heal her body. This woman is amazing. More than anything, she (like many other Vegans) just wants the world to know how easy it is to live this way and how your body will just love you forever!
In the book she talks about her cancer, her life before (ie: oh, that's probably why I got cancer) and how she went about informing and healing herself with a (you guessed it) plant-based diet. The best thing about this book is that it really INFORMS you. I now know nearly everything about every kind of food group and how it will impact my body. There is a lot of detail in how different foods will digest in your body and the impacts they will have. It's fascinating and nice to be so knowlegable about your own body.
In the book she includes a 21 day cleanse where you drink a lot of green juice, give up all your vices (including animals) and meditate each morning. It's lovely and I definitely aim to try it one day. My only question is about the juices: I've become a 'wake up and have some organic fruit' type girl, so switching to green juice in the morning would be interesting.
But this is a really good example of using your own head and doing what feels right for you. Whether you have fruit or a green juice in the morning, I'm sure your body will love you either way and just be so grateful you aren't stuffing animal fat and cholesterol into it. So, definitely something new for me to try!
