Yesterday's post was a little "heavy," don't you think In it, we shared a bit of the stress we were experiencing related to our pending move. There was just so much data to pore through (and yes, we're still feeling that stress)!?
At times like these, it's often good to step back, breathe, and make sure you're not ...well, freaking out -- which makes today's "Take the Time Tuesday" installment absolutely fitting, for we would like you to meet a raw foodie who goes to great lengths to ensure that your "Vitamin L12" levels stay well into the superhero range. Without further adieu, then...
Take the Time to Meet... Pete Vincent!
Pete's mission in the raw food world can be summed up in two words: raw humour -- and that's "humour" with the -our ending. I once tried typing in his site name with the western "humor" spelling and, well, let's just say it took years of intense therapy to reverse the shock of what I saw as a result of that typo.(*) So, if you're going to visit Pete's colourful home on the interwebs, please remember that he's British and, as such, you've got to enter the address into your address bar like so: www.RawHumour.com.
(*) Actually, that's not true. It's just a vile rumour started by me in order to work the word rumour in here along with colour and humour.
In all seriousness, it's very easy to find yourself absolutely overwhelmed when learning about raw foods. Add to that all of the common challenges and problems people encounter while transitioning from less healthy diets, and it makes for quite an emotional roller coaster. One day you're flying high on your first juice feast, the next you're feeling extreme guilt when you cave-in to a "cooked food temptation," frustration with friends or family members who aren't supportive, or disappointment when you fail to meet a health-related goal you've set up for yourself.
To help ease your attitude and life your spirits about these things and more, Pete provides more content and information than the law allows. His Raw Humour Network encompasses the main site, a Ning community site with forums and humourous discussions, a YouTube channel, a blog, audio content, and probably all sorts of other laughter-inducing features we've failed to mention here. Go explore it all -- have fun!
Hopefully, we're all eventually heading toward a state of constant bliss! In the meantime, though, it's important to remember to have fun along the way, and not get overly stressed out. As Pete writes on his site, "Raw Humour is here to help you keep balance between trying to be healthy feeding your belly and exercising your belly with some good old belly laughter to feed your emotional body too."
