is a 41 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Bonita Springs, florida
Raw food diet.
I'm independent and determined. I'm very intelligent, but I also know how to enjoy living life to the fullest in any way I can. I also have a very traditional side as well, so I hope chivalry is not dead! I'm a health conscious female, especially with my diet. I work diligently on bettering myself not only physically, but also mentally, emotionally, spiritually, professionally, etc. I seek the same in someone else.
As for my diet, I was a meat eater for most of my life, although I ate as clean as a meat eater could bc I was very much into fitness and health. Now bc of my furthered education in health and alternative health/nutrition as well as the healing powers of food, I realize how important it is to change up my diet to eliminate gluten and processed foods as well as meat, dairy, eggs and sugar as often as possible! I say as much as possible bc I thoroughly enjoy eating out, but at times I'm not told there is a sprinkle of this or that in a restaurant's recipe. I'm good at finding those secret restaurants who are organic or health conscious, so I don't deal with that too often. Now finding the 'fine dining' restaurants that's health conscious and has more than one vegan dish (which is usually processed anyway) is much harder. When I do go to a non vegan restaurant, I make sure to ask lots of questions about secret ingredients and their substitutions, so expect to see the server to do some advanced work!
I strive for a whole food plant based diet (mostly raw). I make a mean raw chili that I sometimes warm up to 118 degrees if I want a warm meal while still keeping everything in tact. I actually cooked the chili once in a crock pot for an event and meat eaters loved it! That's not to say I don't cook food, but I do strive daily for a minimum of 80% raw of my daily caloric intake to the 20% cooked, so that classifies me as raw vegan compared to just eating mostly a whole food plant based diet.
I especially love juicing and making smoothies, but I do enjoy some cooked meals, especially when I want to enjoy meals when attending events or socializing. I'm always in search of the "new" organic, health conscious restaurant and it's even better when I find one with a raw menu of delicious tasting food! I also enjoy an organic wine or biodynamic wine when available and love to make my own sangria, so I'm not strict with that as long as it's as natural as possible!
For me with food, I understand in our modern society we have our own emotional journey with it, (some stronger than others), so most importantly with myself and clients I consult, I meet everyone exactly where each person is in the present moment. I'm not all or nothing like I used to be, and I realize now there are no real set backs, but just bumps in our journey to propel us forward. These are places in our journey where we are stretched for further growth if we are bold enough and courageous enough to allow it in our lives.
The compassion for others in their journey (and also for animals) is something I continue to develop as I work on my inner self on my personal emotional and spiritual journey. As I continue my own inner work on myself and guiding others in their journey, I watch my outer circumstances (as well as the impact I have on people) change as well. It's an exciting time and there's not a day now I don't wake up feeling blessed no matter what I'm facing that day!
I have to add on more thing. I'm a NON-SMOKER. If you are a smoker or working to quit smoking, then I respect you in your choice for your life without judgement whatsoever, but I'm only interested in meeting a non-smoker (and not a recent non-smoker either), so no exceptions here for me. I don't currently have membership, so I can only upload two pictures, but I have more to send if we hit it off with winks. Best of luck to all in your journey!!
