Cooking and Staying Healthy

One of our goals for this trip is to become more healthy and we plan to take a holistic approach to “healthy”. We will focus our efforts in the body, mind and soul. This week we will start a pre-cleansing process by eliminating all processed foods, meats and complex carbohydrates – including eliminating coffee and bread. For those that know us this is very hard! In other words, this week we are only allowed to eat veggies and fruits.

The pre-cleansing will be followed by 7 days of guided fasting. We will have a rigorous liquid diet with herbal supplements, ampuku abdominal massages, Thai herbal, steam room and colemas… let’s see if we survive!

It has been a great adventure and challenge to find our food for this week in a country where we don’t speak the language and where we are limited to only fruits and some veggies. Tarci signed up for a cooking course of “raw foods” to make sure we have variety in our meals as we plan to eat at home to save money.

Going into town to look for food


At the market in search of veggies and fruits


We got lucky and found a variety of vegetables. Now the difficult part is how to cook them creatively over the next 7 days.


Are you serious! A whole week of fruits and veggies!?!?


At least we will have delicious “raw desserts” that Tarci learned how to make
