Nourished by the Mystery by L. Gruger

“If we look after the root of a tree,

the fragrance and flowering will come by itself.

If you look after the body, the fragrance of the

mind and spirit will come by itself.”

– BKS Iyengar

I was supposed to post this yesterday because I’m doing Art and Words on Fridays…but you know, life gets in the way sometimes.

I’m on day 6 of a raw food detox diet so I’ve been thinking a lot about nutrition and the health of the body lately. I’m doing it for fun and I also like to challenge myself and this is a way of eating I’ve never done before. All raw food! For a week! It’s hard! But I’m doing it.

It’s been a personal challenge to get through it! There are so many temptations!  I feel great though from what I’m eating and also for sticking with it.

I found the diet at the Detox Diet Divas website. I think I found it from a blog linked to a blog at The Kind Diet website which is a new book I bought by Alicia Silverstone that has great vegan recipes.

No, I’m not vegan but I like healthy recipes and reading about good nutrition. I can’t wait till Monday though when I can eat some Sweet Potato-Lentil Stew served over couscous or brown basmati rice…yumm! It’s a recipe from my new book! I love sweet potatoes and lentils, so I can’t wait!

Enjoy the Art and Words!
