Day 23-24 ♥ Mornings are the BEST!

It’s 6:45 am and I’m dripping wet, feeling energized, body cooling, Sun coming up, blissings to Khepra, eternity, dispelling illusions from within and in our outerworld, and truly celebrating divine knowing and focus on truth! I’ve been busy with lectures, readings, studies, notes, and innerstanding. All through out my workout these images were floating through my inner universe. So much to be in awe and wonder of so much to be truly thankful for! This knowledge and memory allows me to see the body, the physical in a whole new perspective, to see myself in new light, to see the in a more unified way (smiling) is a beautiful and powerful path.

grateful for the heirloom organic tomatoes, beautiful green cilantro,
the darkest green kale, herbs and spices, the fresh almond milk I make.
The sweat at my cleavage
the coils in my tiny locs
and the love I am feeling

Iron Rich Vegan Foods + Why Vegans are Crazy!

Happy Thursday!  So this started out as a how to fitness quickie article then turned into How to make Homemade protein bars to  “Why Im not 100% Raw!”  Ok Im gonna split this up! First things first! 
My energy is a little low these past few days. I haven’t figured out what ‘right’ balance I need when I’m on my menses. I usually crave meat around this time (not sure if it’s my O Blood type thing). There have been times when I’ve been vegetarian for years and one day have a burger and my whole system perks up! Then, I go another year no meat! I suffered through anemia for years as a vegetarian and vegan which always made me go back to eating a little organic poultry and meats. And finding balance between the two in a Serena Williams kind of Flexitarian food choice. One thing to note is I was not sick for 2 years while lifting iron and eating grass fed organic meats and poultry! When I came to Virginia, got back on my Vegetarian and Vegan diet, my allergies reappeared – well I got strange food allergies I’ve never had before! Like being allergic to cashews!! I looked like Will Smith in Hitch on his allergic scene. I have yet to kick the sniffles and mucous! (exhale) I’m actually looking forward to heading back to Georgia and the consistent hot temperatures my body seems to feel more naturally aligned with.  But I’m not giving up on the Vegetarian Vegan road! For one, my menses have been lighter and less drama filled. But I do feel ‘life-less’ and having rare headaches which seems to go back to my anemia. 😦  Today I’m searching for this happy medium where my body says “I’m satisfied nutritionally – you’ve provided all the nutrients, minerals, vitamins, we need to keep you healthy. Job well done!”

30 Day Vegan Challenge!  DONE!
