An exploration in well-being, real foods and simple living. Let me help you on your path to wellness.
Well, it has been a long time since I have written and likewise, a long time since I have tried to eat a lot of raw foods. Until last week. My roommate, Daisy, and I decided to do a raw food week. It is going pretty well so far. I realized that cold turkey is the only way to go because before I would always just forget that I was supposed to be eating raw, and revert back to my regular diet. I am armed now with much more knowledge and support than I was over the summer. I know a lot more raw recipes too. So, I am telling myself that it’s for a month, but trying to trick myself into just being a raw food eater. Maybe the time frame will help me to measure my progress. Makes sense to me. On to my observations!
Avocados still aren’t agreeing with me. Day two or three I made guacamole and I was nauseated all day. But things are better now, except I think I have an ear infection. Is this part of the cleansing process? I haven’t had an ear infection since I was like four years old. I’m not sure that’s what it is though.
I had a raw potluck last Friday night. It was such a success! Lots of good raw food and friends from all over the place. I got to talk to Ian and Jenn who are so knowledgeable about everything raw foods.
One would expect that trying to convert to raw foods over the holiday season would be difficult. I know it will be, but I am sort of looking forward to being raw during this time to avoid eating all of that unhealthy holiday food. Besides, it’s not like I can’t have a taste of this and that. Another reason I am excited is because I will be around my family. Maybe I could make them some delicious raw dishes? I hope so.
