On our journey to a healthy life, it is awesome to have some support. The community of people interested in a healthy life who are participating in the #30DaysInTheRaw Challenge have shown their interest through a plethora of interactive posts, photo shares, and general encouragement for their fellow participants. In scrolling through the posts of the Raw Food Challenge participants, I found enthusiast, Songhay Parham. Here is what she had to say about her experience participating in #30DaysInTheRaw:  A Raw Food Challenge for a Healthy Life:

 

OTR Angel – Hi there! How are you today?

 

Songhay – Good day Angel, I’m great today!

 

OTR Angel  -How has this #30DaysInTheRaw experience been for you?

 

Songhay –  I am proud of my tenacity. Five days may not be long to some but for me its major. I grow bored easily. This challenge has kept me engaged and overall I feel better for it than not.

 

OTR Angel – What motivated you to participate?

 

Songhay –  Chef Beee is my childhood girlfriend. She has been health conscious for a long time. If you asked me to participate just one-year ago I would have flat-out declined. I entered the 40/40 club this past April and have run out of tomorrows to start losing weight and getting in shape. Ultimately, I wanted more energy and to just feel good about myself. I have lost 7 pounds! That is motivation enough for me. 

 

OTR Angel – What has your favorite meal been?

 

Songhay – I have three favorites…Marinated Collards, Fried Rice, and the Melon Smoothie.

OTR Angel – Would you consider a Raw food diet for life?

 

 Songhay – Honestly, I don’t know quite yet if I can maintain this diet for a lifetime.

 

OTR Angel – Thank you for participating! We certainly appreciate it!

 

Songhay – Thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts. Have a great day and weekend.
