The word “raw” is thrown around a lot. What does it truly mean? What does it mean to you? To me, it means taking off the armor we wear, the pretty packaging and candy-coating that looks great, but has a “nutra-sweet” after-taste that I think we are all quietly aware of.
Why? Let’s be proud to be who we are, love ourselves for that true, sometimes gritty, taste that has a greater reward than any donut can provide. Remember riding in the back of a pick-up truck with your friends and the dog? Or jumping off the dock into the lake? What is that feeling? Can you get it again? Yes! I can’t define the feeling but I know that whatever it is…it’s RAW, raw fun! That’s what living raw and eating raw food does. It encourages going for the pure nectar of the flower, the pure nectar of life.
In accepting food in it’s raw form, we accept ourselves in raw form. Sure, we are adults, but we can still take the happy perspective of a child, where appearances don’t matter as much as what’s inside.
What’s inside you? What does raw mean to you? What does going for the good, real heart of something do for you in your life? Let me know!
Embrace Raw – Embrace You!
