When we first get into raw foods and we go through the "Oh my God, this is so
amazing!" phase, it's pretty common to shut out other aspects of our lives
so that we can focus 100% on revamping our diet, kitchen and everyday eating
habits, and get fully immersed in our exciting new awareness, food-related
experiences and insights.
While this is pretty much par for the course (it takes a lot of time and energy to completely rethink this part of our life, after all), it's not going to be long before that laser-like focus starts to work against us, rather than for us.
Because we need to keep feeding and nurturing ALL aspects of ourselves - not just our mind, not just our body, and not just anything else for that matter!
I honestly believe it is VITAL to upgrade other areas of our life at the same time that we upgrade our food choices. Because when we don't, the gap between our physical energy and where we find ourselves located emotionally, spiritually or mentally in our lives can feel so great, that the rest of us lags behind and eventually pulls us back. This is why the Go Raw!-then-Binge pattern is so unceasingly prevalent.
