I went to Cuba on a spontaneous trip with new friends last year. This is me kissing a building because I fell head over heels in love with Cuba. The buildings, the people, the energy, the colors and over all life.
As always I travel for food and was in a little shock when I learned it may be hard to find vegan food. It was true, I had a hard time finding food I could eat and without internet almost impossible. I decided I was in the Cuba cleanse.. At first I was a little cranky, but something amazing happened. My body felt great. I was living off very little in comparison to what I normally eat. So many small issues I had, seemed to just disappear. When I returned back to LA I was happy to eat. I went to a few restaurants and noticed pretty quickly that something was wreaking havoc on my system. Symptoms started reappearing very quickly and their was no denying that I felt better in Cuba.
As soon as I landed in Kauai, I started to try to see if I could figure it out.
It took months, I was relentless, I had a lot of setbacks but I finally figured out that my body does not like soy. A vegan that could no longer have tofu. I started to feel better right away. I discovered that I am so sensitive that I can’t really have any soy. The hardest thing I have had to give up is soy sauce (Tamarine). I use it in so many recipes and love the flavor it brings. I have found that my health and vitality bring so much flavor to my life that I can live without soy. Feeling good is more important than any food I may crave or love.
It’s been over a year now and I can’t tell you how many issues I have had for years have disappeared.
I owe it all to Cuba.
It only took days of eating simply there for my body to show me that something was working.
It may seem a bit daunting to figure these things out but your your health is important and it’s worth the investment in yourself to go down some hard roads to find truth!
