Insight From Natural Health Headers - Raw Food and Health by Brian Rossiter - Fruit-Powered

All my life, until I achieved success leading a low-fat raw food diet, the story was often the same for me. I tried to pay attention to the person talking to me, but many times, my mind would wander, especially during talks of sustained length. No matter how hard I tried to follow a teacher’s lecture or a family member’s or friend’s conversation, I would drift on occasion. When it came to meetings at my former jobs, especially early in the morning, I frequently zoned out.

Until I was in my early 30s, I suffered from dis-ease, just as almost everyone else does. Whether my dis-ease took the shape of a headache, stomachache, cold, fever or outright brain fog or suboptimal concentration, I didn’t put my best foot forward on a daily basis until I went wholly raw vegan. When combined with adequate and varied amounts of exercise, the list of benefits of this diet is long and colorful.

Here’s a short list of my some of my favorite benefits I’ve realized on this lifestyle:

  • Exceptional overall health
  • Youthful vitality and euphoric sense of well-being
  • Sustained energy and endurance
  • Enhanced mental clarity and ability to focus
  • Lighter, stronger, quicker, faster body
  • Quick and easy digestion and elimination
  • Restful and recharging sleep
  • Greater awareness of the purpose of life
  • Deep appreciation for the gift of life

In my two years of being wholly raw, I could never pinpoint what my single favorite among all the benefits of a raw food diet was until guest speaker Rachel Costello, all the way from Boston, highlighted hers during a weekly class in March as part of the 30-Day Raw Challenge at the raw vegan café Arnold’s Way in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. She said it is “being present in the moment.” The moment she poured forth these words, they resonated with me deeply and rang ever so loudly true! You see, when we are present in the moment, we are alive, awake, aware, feeling good and embracing every loving moment we’re fortunate to experience! All this enables us to unlock our potential and continue to sculpt the greatest version of ourselves possible.

Being right here, right now and loving it is a beautiful thing. It means you’re conscious and tuning in to experiences on deep, detailed levels. You might notice the mangos you’re eating, for example, taste so magnificently juicy—divine, even—as to elicit pure joy as you feast away beside a box of them on a warm, sunny spring day. You might pick up on the way eating lettuce makes your toes curl, body hum and declare, “I feel sensational!” You might marvel at the brilliance of puffy white clouds on a blue sky.

Lately, I’ve taken pleasure in photographing my cat, Inky, a.k.a. “Little Moo,” as she enjoys her time outside. She’s gotten to spend more time outside this spring than in the past 10 years, and her face is full of wonder.

You might even find profound appreciation for the way your tabby cat slinks across the yard with such alacrity, such grace when she spies a butterfly dancing in the April wind like a flickering flame.

You might find you’re having the best time and become almost overwhelmed with a deep sense of gratitude, even when you’re not doing anything particularly exciting. When this happens, when your feeling of well-being trumps any kind of I-wish-I-were-in-paradise thinking, you know you’re onto something special.

Yep, this fruitarian lifestyle—wow, it’s special! This lifestyle richens the color and amplifies the sound of life—and so much more.Be here now in block lettersBe here now.

See more. Hear more. Smell more. Taste more. Feel more.

Do more. Be more. Live more.

Be all that’s stirring inside you—and all you desire to be. Be even more than you can dream!

There’s no time like the present to start being present in the moment.

Enjoy every moment!
