What is the Raw Food Pantry really all about?
It’s about YOU! It’s about helping you to find clarity to the questions you’ve been asking yourself. It’s about you being able to journal your triumphs and struggles. It’s about you finding your voice. It’s about finding better ways to organize your kitchen, ways to lay out your fridge, to find the equipment that’s right for you. Being able to find recipes that you’ll not only like the look of but will actually make, eat, enjoy and love the taste of! It’s about finding a step-by-step program that will actually work for you because it’s suited to your individual lifestyle and needs. It’s about finding your strengths and weakness so your working with them (rather then against them). It’s about you finding your passion, your purpose, your ultimate happy place with food!
I guess what I am trying to say is that you wouldn’t just jump into a car and start driving with no destination in mind. But if you did just start driving, you’d still end up somewhere, right? And that “somewhere” might be the farthest place from where you’d really like to be. So, eventually you’d turn that car around and head back home. A lot of people not only treat their raw food journey like this but they also treat their lives like this. They don’t make any conscious decisions on where they want to go, how they want to get there, where they want to be, or who they want to become. In-turn, they struggle day by day trying to make better food choices without physically moving ahead and never getting to the point or place they really want to be. Maybe a little tough love and sacrifice is all that is needed. But who is there to support you? You will change as your body changes so you need to be ready for this…you’ll learn about this later.
You’ll hear all over the internet that “going raw is easy”, “going gluten &/or dairy-free is easy”. Well, I am here to tell you, truthfully, it’s not always that easy. It can be a real challenge and for most people it is. But this is a challenge that’s truly worth it!
You know the routine, you get home from work and everybody is hungry and it’s up to you to give them a healthy meal and still get those kids out the door again to hockey, karate, swimming or soccer practice on time. And that’s if your lucky enough not to be double booked! Am I right? Or what about when one of your family members are sick and you want to spend more time with them? With all the “stuff” in life getting in the way of making healthy food choices, it becomes easier to just pop something in the oven or get take out…truth be told these are just habits and addictions. Realistically, we are clinging onto a life that no longer suits us.
If you really want something to work for you (like losing weight, having your kids behave in a calmer way, improving your health, longevity and mental fitness) you need to find the time to do it. Whether it’s easy or hard, it’s all up to us! Unfortunately, things just don’t fall out of the sky and into our laps (unless it’s bird poop!). Think about it, everything you have up to this point, in some way, shape or form, you’ve earned it. The good, the bad, the ugly, and even those amazing things that make you feel so lucky and blessed to be alive.
So where do we go from here? Well, that’s all up to you! You can choose to read another post, check out a recipe or our products. There’s even a “freebie” section on the home page. Wherever you go, the choice is always yours…
So, if I can help you in anyway, please feel free to contact me and I will help you in any way I can.
In the meantime, I’m working daily to put my experience and knowledge into a easy, workable and acheivable program, just for you! My program will consist of videos, recipes, and books that will work hand in hand. Experience tells me that we all learn quite differently and I want to ensure you have what you need to be successful. Also, I am very excited to announce I will be available to help a very limited number of people soon through the Kickstart program.
I am looking forward to helping you find solutions to those pesky food problems that plague you and your family.
Many blessings and lots of love,
