While reading all of these health and nutrition books, I keep running into a couple of reoccurring theories. One I feel strongly about is based on eating processed (altered) foods and the negative effects it can have on our body (not calorie or fat related).
These processed foods, or “laboratory foods” have been described as: “depleting and dead.” In a sense, we’re putting dead, stale-energy inside of our bodies (not to mention, chemicals). Living foods ~ greens, fruits…. are from the earth. They’re alive and full of energy, vitality and nutrients.
I’ve literally spent hours this morning being wrapped up in the Crazy Sexy Life of Kris Carr ~ a wellness warrior, living with cancer for 8 years now. In 2003, (at the age of 31) she was diagnosed with a rare cancer, already @ Stage 4 ~ and her journey began. As a “junk-food-junkie” she literally became vegan overnight & began educating herself through books, mentors and health programs like The Hippocrates Health Institute. She is now a NY Times best-selling author of the: Crazy Sexy Diet… and a true inspiration to me.
Crazy Sexy Cancer, is a documentary Kris wrote and directed for TLC. You can check out the YouTube clip of the Trailer <here>
However, for the purpose of this blog posting, I am inserting a great video below about Kris and her journey. Get some tissues and get ready for a dose of inspiration!
Wishing you an abundance of health, happiness and ♥
