Do You Want a Lightening Fast Digestion and Metabolism?

 

IMG_1308

Be aware and grow in your awareness of good food combining.

It can truly make a difference in your digestion, and therefore your ability to lose weight if you are looking to do so.  You want a healthy moving digestive track with everything flowing freely, not getting stuck.

The first basic step is to eat fruit alone.  It is best in the morning.  It digests very quickly, and will catch up to other things you have eaten.  (Then it can cause fermentation, gas, bloating, and other fun stuff!)  Thus, keeping it first in the morning is best!  (Unless you eat it all day – like me, but I eat it alone or mixed with tender greens.)

Even fruit needs to be combined properly.  There are several types of fruits.
Here is my food combining song to help master the basics…

Books that I have learned this from (as well as my experience now) are the following:

80/10/10 by Dr. Douglas Graham
Go Fruit Yourself by Freelee

and my own book, sharing my first year of eating this way,

Diary of a Raw Vegan by Raw Jenni (me) is on sale right now for a limited time for $2.99

Find out more about how I got lightening fast metabolism and digestion!  And how my metabolism and digestion were healed from years of eating junk food!

Eating Raw Vegan During Crazy Travel Day!!!

What was supposed to be a 4 hour day of travel turned into over 12 hours!

“Go to Gate D19,”
“No we have NOOOO pilots, go back to B14,”
“This flight’s cancelled, go back to D19.”
“Wanna go to Miami? (instead of Key West – where our reservations were)

Thankfully, we had great attitudes and were still laughing through all of this!  The Gate attendants loved us and our happiness (fruitiness? joy of the Lord?) and got us out of Atlanta, where we were stuck.

They sent us to Miami, where we could rent a car and drive the rest of the way to Key West!  Without our luggage, we arrived at almost midnight.

So happy to see beds and our very own bathroom!  Ahhhhh!
