My wife and I haven't had a tradition thanksgiving in 5 years.
A Big switch from the 22+ or more that we used to gather with.
Thanksgiving arrives, usually after a 10 day healing retreat we facilitate. We are exhausted. Seems an easy job on the face but helping the sick recover from their dis-ease is a huge energy drain.
Off we go to restore. No better place than the ocean, sucking in the salt water air and negative ions bursting from the ground into our bare feet and just Chillin.
Eating a voluptuous meal is not on our radar. In this stage of life, we find tranquil moments regenerating and uplifting.
I have been deep tissue cleansing, with Colon hydrotherapy, since I healed my cancer without doctors, chemo and radiation in 2003. The C word will make you pay attention to what you feed your 50 Trillion cells.
Eating. What to eat. What to pack. Here’s what we do on the road.
Breakfast: Easy peasy. Chia seeds, Hemp hearts, mixed with coconut flakes, walnuts, raisins, almond butter and some chopped apple and or berries on top, All of it organic. Put filtered hot water in mix and let set for a couple of minutes. Yummy scrummy for your tummy. I like a little more crunch than my wife, so I add some granola type seed mix to mine. Easy to pack in zip lock bags all the food. We bring our own little miniature coffee pot, (no coffee has ever touched its virgin glass) to heat filtered hot water for food prep and tea. We pack our own utensils, glass bowls with plastic covers, knives, cutting board and peeler. NEVER eat out of Styrofoam or paper. Chemicals leach off and your liver will hate you for it.
When I was traveling during my cancer healing I packed my own juicer and blender and had a cooler of organic greens. A Bit messy and cumbersome at times but life-saving. You can follow my friend John Kolher at discountjuicers.com on YouTube and learn how to vacuum seal your green drinks and just pack green drinks in a cooler.
It’s a lot easier to find at least one organic co-op, store or restaurant in today’s world. We bring organic soups as a backup plan. We bring small LeCrueset Pans and a hotplate to reheat items. We pack filtered water and have a filter to use in the hotel room as well. Best to scope out the restaurants and stores before you head out so you can decide what to bring and what you can get on the road. Be creative on meals. Another quick meal for me is organic miso soup with sardines and seaweed. All I need is hot water and a glass bowl. Fast, filling and scrumptious. “Eat to Live, Live to Eat.”
Other “Fast food”. Organic Hard-boiled eggs with Himalayan salt, celery, carrots, rice chips, almond butter.
Thanksgiving day we will just chill and be. No zillion hours of food prep and cleanup.
