Vegan MoFo 2015 Day 1: Rise & Shine... BREAKFAST!

Yay! Day one of Vegan MoFo 2015! Let's roll!

For the last few months, I've been a high raw vegan. I've also eliminated grains, wheat, gluten, oil, nuts, sugar (sugar that occurs in food is ok), alcohol, and of course almost all cooked food. I incurred an ankle injury that happened much longer ago than I'm willing to admit, but didn't take care of things as I should have. Eventually I found myself barely able to walk, with a constant altered gait, in such severe pain that every aspect of my life was being impacted. Although I eventually sought medical care, conventional medicine completely failed me. I took matters into my own hands, or rather my own kitchen. With this temporary lifestyle adjustment along with a regimen of herbs, supplements and enzymes, I'm on the road to healing. Although I haven't yet taken back with running, I'm out of all braces, boots, and casts, have tossed all medication to the curb, and am cycling every day, sometimes 20 miles. This isn't about perfection (I'm high raw, not all raw), if there's something I really want I'll go for it, but that's very rare, as quite simply nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

Food is medicine. Let's have breakfast.

See you tomorrow! xo
