“Treat your body like a temple, not a woodshed….If you take good care of it, your body can take you wherever you want to go, with the power and the strength and energy and vitality you will need to get there.”
~ Jim Rohn
A good friend of mine has recently been trying a raw/vegan diet to “clean up” a bit, and I can’t help but admire her tenacity and dedication to protecting and enhancing her life through this (often intense) lifestyle. A raw way of eating requires a lot of work, but she has somehow made it happen gracefully and with joy.
As someone who thrives on cheese, bread etc. our macrobiotic /vegan dinner last night at Real Food Daily inspired me to clean house a bit myself… Now I don’t think I’m going to be able to jump mung-bean first into the raw or even vegan lifestyle, but I will begin to make more of an effort to pay attention to what I put in my mouth and how it will affect my “temple”.
