I can't be on the road without bringing my favorite pillow from home to keep myself comfortable.However, I do need to eat better while on the road.

This is an awesome find. I have a three-day moving trip coming up this summer to plan. What foods to bring, if we are driving a U-Haul and a car or just a U-Haul, what roads we will take, etc. When I travel, I am normally in the passenger's seat. The first several hours I have to sleep or I get car sick. Otherwise, my husband and I love to sing songs together. We practice harmonies, creating our own songs, or putting new lyrics to a favorite melody. One time we got 127 ants that go marching... that was a fun drive. I tend to avoid electronics on a drive unless. It's a radio. Even then, it's often nicer to have the radio off than on.

I have been eating raw for 6 months now. For me some of the bloating seemed to be an initial reaction that occurred due to the change and my body cleansing a bit. The only time I feel bloated on the diet now is if I overdo it with cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc.). This is where fruit helps out. Just a tip from my experience. If you are looking for more raw recipes check out my blog! www.radiatetheday.blogspot.com

Hi Maddie! Why yes, yes I did. I added overnight oats to my daily diet and that seemed to help a little. However, after the two weeks of raw food, I added quinoa and black beans. I also started steaming my spinach and kale which made it easier to digest, for me. Everyone reacts differently -- I'm so happy that you found a plan that works for you and that you are feeling great! xx

My eyebrows suck, and not in an unruly but cool/natural way; the so thin you can barely notice them way, but using the powder to fill them will help I think. Request** Can you write about your new pup!? I have the same breed and they are just perfect! Hopefully soon (:
Ayu -Jan 14, 2015, 10:47AM
Natural beauty. My brows are on the thicker side as well and I love embracing them!

I normally don't share when it comes to posts, but this one hit me hard and I couldn't pass up commenting. I am a sophomore in College and freshman year I was diagnosed with mono.. horrible ik, but just wait.. this caused to me to have an upset stomach constantly, making me sick almost every day. A whole year later I found out I had ulcers. During this time I had cut out dairy from my diet, as it seemed to only make me feel worse. I then proceeded to become a vegan, after reading about how good it was for the body. I thought if anything could make me better I would try it. I have now been taking medication for months now and seem to be getting better, I still cannot have acidic things, such as coffee and alcohol as you have mentioned. Giving up caffeine and alcohol while away at college has been super tough for me, but it just goes to show what our bodies can and cannot take. I will continue to be vegan, eating raw, whole foods and exercising and practicing yoga. We should be as kind to our bodies as they are to us.

Great ! Few tips i would like to mention here Add a teaspoon of camphor to 1/2 a litre of coconut oil. Store it. Massage this oil on your scalp before going to bed. This would help you get rid of dandruff.A mixture of castor, mustard and coconut oil massaged on your scalp can help you with dandruff problems.One part lemon juice with two parts coconut oil to be massaged to the roots of your hair to ward of dandruff problem.Hair loss problem can be solved by massaging coconut or almond oil for 10 to 15 minutes.

I am also glad this post is concentrating on beauty from things we eat as beauty really comes from health! Thinking now that I should really remember to drink more water and take care of my omega 3 intake as well as healthier eating habits in general… Would love to read a post about omega 3 food recipes ;) missionthinknatural.wordpress.com - natural beauty & health :)

I have had some serious sleeping issues when I first saw this post. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try, and WOW! I sleep amazing! Now I don't open my laptop after supper and I read instead. If I feel the urge for music I skip spotify and use my record player instead. I think I will move my phone across the room (This will make me wake up when my alarm goes off too)
Kea -Dec 31, 2014, 12:48AM
Two other things: - Center for Environmental Therapeutics (cet.org) has quizzes that help you understand whether your sleep cycle is shifted and if so, how to rectify it using light lamps. Also have product reviews on the latter. - If taking melatonin, Dr. Naiman suggests sublingual melatonin liquid. Apparently more physiologic and quicker absorbed. Health food stores have it.
