The plan was to get to Oregon within 3 months of beginning the Trans American Bike Trail. The reality was that my body needed more freedom than scaling the country on two or three or however many wheels. My “meat puppet” needed yoga and the infinite bounds that wringing yourself out provides. Until being able to connect through yoga photos, here are the epic Panoramas of Yorktown, VA to Pippa Passes, KY. If you are indoors, I hope these photos bring sunlight to you!
^ Vesuvius, VA
^ Almost to Blacksburg!!!
^ Sunset from beautiful Oshin’s beautiful balcony!!!
^ Paved switchbacks of hell.
^ One of these hills got speed over 40 mph.
^ A valley overlook at Breaks Interstate Park.
Juicing is great, it tastes better; it’s easier to swallow. But is it as effective? Is it as realistic for the average American? It may be too wasteful, especially on the wallet. Many people need more fiber, we really can’t get enough fiber. More of the plant would be utilized. Fiber assists the natural cleansing processes in the liver and kidneys and other organs. It gently stimulates the walls of digestive system, like a gentle massage. It also acts as little toothbrushes.
When we listen to the methods of healing by those observed before us, we learn survival.
Here I have Organic Black Bean Spaghetti by Explore Asian: Authentic Cuisine. It’s what you want on a clean diet and it tastes f*****g amazing and you don’t feel the need for more carbs or sugars. On top is an Indian-type sauce I have invented. I don’t measure anything, I just pour. So get your kitchen goggles on and just eye-ball it.
Fill up a pan on very low heat and taste when it is warm, but NEVER bubbling because we don’t want to ruin the nutrients, but we want our tummies to not have to work as hard during digestion. If it’s cold and you need to heal, more energy is going to digestion, where it is less needed.
Get your organic pumpkin
Himalayan pink salt
Neem powder (salt, honey and spicey to taste until the bitter is masked)
Curry or Turmeric
-Use whatever herbs really, but if you go with Neem be sure to balance out the taste.
-You can throw garlic and onion in there too!
-Don’t forget the FATS!!!!!! We need our Omegas (coconut oil, whatever sustainably sourced organic nut oil, if you get Red Palm Oil get Nutiva) You could also just buy the whole nut, ya nut!
-Chop up a fresh bell pepper and I have sprinkled cacao nibs on top or you can sprinkle on some flax seeds, or hemp seeds, or hydrated fenugreek seeds (just put them in water in a jar in your fridge).
En-freakin-joy my friends! ❤
