Let me just start out by telling you I’m not a raw foodie. (Yet?) Honestly, I’m not sure if I ever will be. However, the importance of feeding my body well has been coming up a lot lately. And I thought I’d share someone I’ve found with you: Markus Rothkrantz. This post isn’t going to be about the details of raw foodieism or even if you should or should not commit to that sort of a lifestyle. That’s all personal choice. I just want to share my experience and perspective here in case it inspires anyone to make positive change in their life at whatever level is most comfortable.
I found Markus in a somewhat interesting synchronistic way. His picture popped up on Facebook and I was just drawn to it. I had no idea who he was or what he did. Ok, ok, yes he’s a bit of a hottie. But he’s not really the kind I would normally be into. And I’m not cruising Facebook lookin’ for hotties. I was drawn to him for more than the fact that he’s a hottie. It was one of those intuitive pulls. I like those. I tend to follow them.
When I first saw his pictures, I thought it was weird that he had his age plastered all over them. What? Is this some German thing? No, it turns out that he likes to use himself as an example of how he was completely unhealthy (and unhottie) 20 years ago. At age 47, he’s the picture of health and hottieness.
How did he do it? By eating real food. And welcoming love into his life and body.
I find it fascinating that eating real, unprocessed food from the earth is a revolutionary health choice in our day and age. (Did I just say “in our day and age?” Yes, I did. Oh well. Moving on.) Seriously. What do we think we are SUPPOSED to eat? Ok, I’m not interested in debating this with anyone. I know how sensitive food choice discussions can be. Everyone needs to make their own choices. I’m totally down with that. And although I believe it really is the smartest choice to eat the simplest things straight from the earth, I also understand the inherent challenges with that in our day and age. (Yes, I said it again. That time for comic effect.)
I’m sharing this information just because it feels so intuitively right to me. Markus seems to have really hit on something. Of course, he’s not the first person to espouse eating raw foods. That’s been around. Since the beginning of humanity, I’d imagine. But there was just something about his approach that hooked me in to what he had to say. (I think maybe it was the Virgo in his otherwise Leo chart.) He’s simply sharing a few really basic messages. Real food. Energy. LOVE. And a lot of information on what plants can do for your health, well-being (and hottieness).
