I’m so grateful for my sister @paparoxi who trained with me today! We survived a hard day…including a huge black bear sighting that scared me into big, hysterical tears. It was absolutely terrifying in the moment but we’ve been cracking up about it all afternoon. God covered us!! We will never forget this day, that’s for sure!! #triathlon #triathlete #ironman #paparoxi

Sorry for the bad lighting but my dinner salad was life 🙌 it was the “sauce” I posted from yesterday with 2 less tomatoes and noodles, sprouts, Avacado, shredded romaine, a couple almonds and mushrooms drizzled with lemon juice and dried basil. I feel so good and healthy since I’ve been eating raw vegan. It’s a huge change, I plan on sharing more as the time goes by and and I learn more. #Goodnight #dinner #rawrecipe #veganrecipe #veggies #healthymeal #easymeal #paparoxieats #paparoxi

There is a plethora of information about the links between our body’s pH and cancer. Most diseases thrive in an acidic environment. I’ve seen a huge difference in my health by eating more alkaline from being less tired, decrease in headaches and total elimination of candida problems. I thought this chart would be helpful bc it’s easy to understand. I know several people were offended by my post about eating healthier foods for breast cancer awareness month but so much research today is pointing to this huge link between all cancers and our diet. I really encourage people to research for themselves to be in the know. If I see someone driving off a cliff I’m going to stop them. The same thing goes for healthy eating. I know changing a diet or way of life is very hard, I have been there! Incorporating healthier choices into our lives can be the very thing to save your life or someone you know! #healthyliving #healthymeal #alkaline #acidic #pHchart #paparoxi

The reality of this cancer epidemic is that it starts at home by what we eat. No amount of walks, fundraisers or charity efforts will change anything if we don’t change the food we consume. We can’t treat the disease if we don’t treat the source. I believe eating mutant food causes mutations in our body i.e cancer. The best way we can fight breast cancer this month is to eat more raw fruits and vegetables, celebrate this month by choosing pink veggies :) Go an entire week without eating anything from a package or with a lable. Let’s stop cancer at its source. Some great documentaries to check out are “The Gerson Miracle”, “Fed Up” or “Forks over Knives” #lablefree #breastcancerawareness #ihatecancer #bethechange #healthyliving #fruitsandveggies #paparoxi

So excited to be speaking with these lovely fit ladies @nicolemmelton @zadiamurphy about staying committed to your fitness goals through the upcoming season. Believe it or not my diet went to trash while training for ironman, that is something I was not happy about. I am back on track and excited to share my experience of how to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle with @essencemag !
