75% Raw + 15% Cooked + 10% Toxic = Not the Answer
It’s amazing how time has passed during this raw food journey. What’s even more amazing is the things that I have learned about myself.
I recall at one time that I’d be pretty dogmatic about certain things that I intend to do and that has somehow changed. This journey hasn’t been extremely hard (no I didn’t say “easy” because it kills me when someone says how “easy” something was and you feel like crap if you struggle with it). My basic plans has been to start with a raw breakfast (green smoothie or raw oatmeal), Have raw snacks (you would think celery & carrots, but I’ve been going straight for the raw deserts), Have a salad for lunch (large if that’s all I’m eating & medium if w/ something cooked) and a cooked meal for lunch with something raw included. I have also manage to squeeze some juice out of my old Breville with the broken spout.
Now, here is the kicker: I’ve completely destroyed all of this good eating a few days a week by eating french fries with my daughter or overdosing on chocolate chip vegan cookies or eating Doritos (oh’ Doritos are not vegan – dope! don’t judge me. Lol). I also realize that I can be an emotional eater & that I am even prone to binge eating…..I know, I’m shocked too. I also considered myself pretty discplined about things as well – whether did that woman go??? Well, here’s one truth – there’s nothing like self-awareness & being honest with yourself. Guess, that’s the page I’m on in life these days. I have 18 days left in this process and I am going to make every day count – darn it!!!!!
I plan to change my may mathematics to 75% Raw + 25% Cooked = 100% energized in the days ahead.
