How do I travel while staying raw vegan? I keep the following super foods in the drawers of my hotel room:
- Shelled hemp seeds
- Cacao nibs from RawLiving
- Maca powder
- Camu camu powder
- Klamath blue green algae
- Nori sheets
- Dehydrated seaweed like dulse flakes
- Celtic sea salt
My hemps seeds and magical powders come from Raw Living of course.
This is the end result, wrapping fresh veggies from the hotel buffet into a nori seaweed:
Dr Sadeghi recommends the use of olive oil in his book The clarity cleanse. First, olive oil is so much economical than avocados. Also, avocados are picked up unripe from the tree whereas I guess that olives need to be ripe to be pressed for oil. Olive oil is my new love, I use it in salads, to cleanse my face and to moisture my body.
This is beautiful olive oil from Tunisia (I am crazy about these gorgeous flowers by the way, my instagram account is full of them):
Read The clarity cleanse:
As regard to the detoxification eating plan, I learned a great tip in Dr Habib Sadeghi’ book The clarity cleanse. It is best to leave sliced apples become brown as it eases the pancreas work. Another tip that we can easily add to our daily habits: starting the day with lemon water.

The Clarity cleanse is a very interesting book as regard to mind and body detox:

The amazing helpful books written by Geneen Roth were such a great support to overcome bulimia, notably When food is love:

The chocolate comes from RawLiving of course:
