THAI PAPAYA SALAD RECIPE:


After a month of sweat, tears and an amazing experience doing my YTTC (yoga teacher training) on Koh Tao, Thailand I decided to do a cooking course that was offered to me as part of the 'package ' at the beautiful villa on "PANACEA"resort, Koh Samui.

The Accommodation was beyond my expectation and the perfect end to my Thailand trip.

"PANACEA" is set on a hill top, overlooking the beautiful coast of Bophut. 

The villa I booked, hosts 4 couples/ rooms to their own double bed en suite with a full board mini bar serviced each day. 

This was the perfect opportunity to treat some friends from the course to an amazing 3 days of massage, food, more yoga, shopping and down time in the luxurious Kalya residence before heading our separate ways. 

Each villa on the resort boasts its own private garden with organic fruit. I made it up a tree after learning how to make the salad to grab a green papaya. 

We had a private 20m infinite pool overlooking the ocean and jungle where I could float and swim laps before indulging in the delicious breakfast freshly prepared by the friendly staff in the privacy of our own, fully equipped kitchen and dining room.

Here is a snap video of the cooking class in our villa with some pics from the trip. Xxx

AND OCTOBER COMES TO AN END:

What I have learnt on my 30 day's of eating ANTI CANCER?

*Its impossible to only drink red wine
*Sugar is highly highly addictive, this was my toughest one!
*I don't need gluten in my life.
*My mood is amazing, I feel great! Its a few stabilised without the highs and lows of the sugar.
*There is sugar is EVERYTHING!!! Read your labels.
*I tried allot of new recipes by cooking and entertaining at home. Its been fun and way more engaging than eating out.
*Im pushing on for longer :-) …~After some dark chocolate~. haha

Im way happier than I have ever been and feel so much 'lighter' Yoga has been a breeze this month.
Only drinking red wine didn't last well. I stayed away from any processed juices, cocktails and additives and drank only clean vodka soda on the odd occasion or whiskey and water. Red wine alone is very rich...

I lost 2KG of weight and a few centimetres, but this wasn't my motive.
I learnt so much! Just talking to people at random about the pink hair piece and the anti-cancer month got allot of conversations rolling.
There is always something new to learn!!!

Week 2 “Roxy Louw Pink October”: Half way there…


I am feeling great, way better than I did last week. No more cravings for dates and fruit. 
No more headaches and a way better mood!!! haha
I spent the first week playing around and figuring out recipes to substitute for my regular meals and week two has been much easier.


 I have taken in more calories than I would usually do with the added smoothies, gluten free seed bread and almonds.

MY STATS: My weight is the same. I have lost 'cm' though which is interesting.
I went surfing on the weekend and my board knocked me terribly in my face. 
Where I usually bruise very badly, I have come out pretty good. It has healed so quickly!!!
I guess its all the vitamin K that I have been consuming...
I was also on the road for the last week but managed to still substitute pretty well.

HERE IS TO THE 2nd Faze!!! Excited to see how this turns out with added hot yoga thrown in the Mix.

XOXO

DAY 6:"ROXY LOUWS PINK OCTOBER" WHOLE FOOD, ANTICANCER EATING PLAN. 

Mood dairy; Irritation, nightmares, clear skin, dry mouth, bright eyes… 



Okay wow...I was hoping to get to the end of week one on my 
ANTICANCER Pink-October-Whole-Food-Eating plan but decided to write a day earlier. 

Why? Because I can't believe the symptoms I am feeling today, day 6! 
I don't know If it's the dairy, the gluten, the sugar, the trans-fat, the hormones in our foods or the chemical additives and Sweetener withdrawals, but it's hectic!!! 

I have done juice detoxes, fruit fasts , the cayenne pepper cleanse and all sort of diets and live a pretty healthy life but I didn't expect this.
But again, I have only lasted 5 days on any detox or fast.

Something or withdrawal of something is giving me cold sweats, nightmares, irritation and nausea.  I'm thinking it's the sugar as it's the only thing I have had throughout all my detox's and diets in the form of honey or is it the salt? I don't know?
Shuuu, now that I have finished venting. haha

Let me cook some chicken,mango curry with chilly guacamole salsa. 
Still going strong all the way!!! Has anyone else experienced this?
Please comment below....
Oh and on the UPSIDE: My skin is super duper clear and soft. 
My face has dropped tremendously, water retention? I don't know. My eyes are also really bright...
Lets see what the following week holds.
XOX
