The LOVE-nder cleanse

As you know by now, we are back to our humble abode after a few weeks of traipsing in Mindanao. During our vacation, we ate some junk foods here and there as well as sodas. Grabe, I made a vow not to eat them but I am only human. LOL :) I need to detox!!! Now naaa.

Without any further ado, I am attending this workshop this coming weekend. Actually, I have some other workshops lined up to attend this month of September but this is the first one so far. I will post the rest of the events that I will join so if you are interested, you can try them too. Sounds good?!? :)

Anyways, I’ve wanted to try the RAW diet pero ang hirap, hahaha! Imagine, NOT-COOKING-YOUR-FOOD to get the nutrients first hand. I know it’s very matipid but thats a different story.  This weekend, is like the starter course of getting into the RAW diet. Now, I am not only attending to cleanse out from the junk that we’ve digested in the past weeks, months,etc but also for my hubby. He’s got Hepa B and it is important for us to make sure that his liver is protected amidst that disease. Buti nalang, he is slowly shifting to the vegetarian diet  way way back even before he got that disease (blame it on the turo-turo food).

Here is the poster from Dahon Kusina. I think they are the pioneer in introducing this workshop and they are very well-known in the RAW community here in the Philippines.

THE LOVE-NDER CLEANSE POSTER

So this workshop aims to help us in cleansing and detoxing. We’ve tried DIY detox before but we are giving a formal method of leaning it a try :), though we just have to spend a few pesos for that.

Let me share some excerpts from their site about this upcoming workshop.

Cleansing and detox is a crucial step in clearing our body of both physical and emotional toxins that have accumulated over the years.

In this workshop, learn some protocols that you can choose from (from mild to heavy), learn all about the importance and functions of the liver in the detoxification process – all while learning some easy-to-prepare recipes that aim to support your cleanse.

We are back!!!

Although our vacation was cut short (for the reason which i will tell in a few days) and we are only able to visit the North Eastern past of Mindanao. We had a blast and I must say that we are lucky to have this beautiful and very rich country. 

More post in a few days :)

LakbayGulay

…that’s what my hubby said during our travel. He thought of the name and i find it interesting and right for our lifestyle.

From now on,  we will name our travel adventures “LakbayGulay”.  Lakbay is travel in Filipino and Gulay is of course veggies. What do you think?

“The highs and lows of being vegetarians on the road, sight-seeing, being on a budget, enjoying the wonders of nature, meeting people and learning. We are here to document and  share it. ” This is what drives us to travel. Hope you will join us  again in our future travels.

As a kick-off for our first adventure, let me share some of the photos we took. We saw so many trees, walked the beach, swam in the beach, falls, climbed stairs, talked to strangers and a lot more. It opened our eyes and thanked God for such marvels.  We are so blessed that we have this.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

Do you recognize some of the places? Will tell you more about it in a few days!  :)
