When Health Nuts go Camping

What a riot! This is our 2nd camping weekend away since we returned from our 3-week camping roadtrip from Vancouver to Ontario in late July. We loaded the cooler with a tub of salad, 3 tubs of various wrap fillings that I'd made and frozen this past week, some avocados, sprouted grain tortillas and bread, some fruit, 2 large jars of Green Smoothies, a bunch of water, and returned to the gorgeous spot we found a couple weeks ago.
We set up a large tarp in the trees, knowing it was to be a rainy weekend.

One morning our fellow camper came up to our site, holding out her swollen, mystery-bug-bitten hand and asked if we had any antihistamine. I didn't, and in that moment, I realized that even though I don't use 'medicine' per se, I should be taking these camping trips with more in my bag than ecchinacea. So, I offered her what I did have, aloe vera juice (it's more like a clear gel) and she rubbed it on and off she went. I saw her later and it had taken much of the itch and burn out of it. But the incident made me think that it would be smart to stock up on a natural medicine bag...lessee...some arnica, some tea tree oil... what else? (Tell me?)

Wildhearted,

I can't tell you what this means to me, especially on the 3 month anniversary of getting my act together!

Please do keep in touch, there's a lot to be said for support in this lifestyle. While I'm learning as I go, I'm more than open to sharing the journey, so if you think I can be of any help, ask away...

Thanks for reading my blog :)

Best of good eatin' to you!

I am really enjoying reading your blog. I have been skipping around a bit, especially appreciated the skin brushing and EFT information. Congratulations on the weight loss! You look great.

Raw Blessings!
