Raw Food and the Average Joe

I just finished watching this documentary called “Average Joe on the Raw”.  I have been studying the raw food diet over the last few weeks and just by chance came across this film.

I have decided that I NEED to improve my health! I am totally disgusted with my eating habits and I am worried that my son’s health (specifically his mental health) may be affected by eating the “Standard American Diet”.  I want him to eat more raw, alive foods, but I know that I need to change my lifestyle before I can help him to do the same.

My son is extremely defiant and at certain times of the day he is so wound up that he is literally bouncing off the walls! It takes FOREVER to get him calmed down enough to go to bed at night.  He goes to the bathroom for bowl movement about 1 time per WEEK and always clogs up the toilet. The entire day before and of the bowel movement he is so uncomfortable.  I just know that it as to do with his SAD diet and I feel it is my responsibility to create a better lifestyle for the both of us.

So, I have started purchasing books on eating raw food and looking at cookbooks on how to prepare raw foods.  I am reading the “80/10/10 Diet” right now and started following some blogs like Megan Elizabeth and Fully Raw Kristina.  I also found the website Raw Food Rehab.  All of these have really ignited my passion to make this change toward eating a Raw Food diet.  I really want to just jump in and do this completely, BUT I think slowly adding in more and more raw food and then eliminating more and more cooked/processed foods is the route that will be easiest and most long-term for me.  Also being that my husband is not at all interested in making this change, it is going to be a bit harder for me.

After watching this awesome documentary and seeing the amazing changes in Seth‘s test results and watching his miraculous change from the inside out, I am even more inspired to continue incorporating raw foods and encouraging my son to do the same.  This was a really eye opening film!!

Documentary: Average Joe on the Raw

Wishing For a Lazy Weekend

I am feeling wiped out today.  I just want to lay down and sleep. But that is NOT happening with an almost 4 year old and a husband with a “to-do” list a mile long! So, I just had my Zija XMam and am now drinking some XM+. Bring on the energy and good mood I tell you!!

What is on the agenda today? Yard work. Mowed the yard yesterday and today my husband “weed-a-waka” (as my 4 year old says) the yard. Now to take care of the wild garden and clean off the patio to enjoy in the evenings when it’s not so darn HOT!! One of the topics that I plan to cover in this blog is “what’s there to do in a small Podunk town”. Yep, that’s where I live.  Small farm town.

Well, off to get somethings done.  This Zija XM+ will be kicking in soon 🙂

Successful Principles (click image above to contact)

I absolutely LOVE this!

I just recently started working as an independent distributor for Zija International. This is a company sells products that contain Moringa Oleifera. Moringa oleifera is nature’s “miracle tree”. It’s packed with 90+ verifiable, cell-ready vitamins, minerals, vital proteins, antioxidants, omega oils, and other benefits. To ensure the highest quality possible, all of Zija’s Moringa trees are grown on proprietary farms in India. They are organically raised without chemicals, harvested carefully by hand, and then shade dried, ensuring that essential nutrients remain intact.

With all that said…I love Zija’s products and I am in awe of Moringa Oleifera!! I love the products so much that I decided to promote them and became a distributor!

Once I joined the Zija team, I saw how positive and caring all the distributor’s were; and how successful they were at running their own personal business as Zija Distributors. These Successful Principles remind me of my Zija team!!

If you are coachable and open to learning from those who are following these principles, then you too will be successful! If you are serious and goal oriented then we want you on our fast growing team!
