After that failure of going on a vegetarian diet about a year ago, I’m starting a new ‘diet’. Last time it lasted about 3 weeks, all went down the drain because of travels, gatherings, and just too many temptations. I hope this one is the last.
So this is day 4 on going Raw. Day 2 and 3 was weird. I felt weak, my nose was runny all the time, and just didn’t feel like doing anything. I only half-finished a new page for Angkor, and spent the day not doing very much.
Day 4 is much better! When I woke up this morning, everything seemed ‘clear’. I don’t know how to explain it, but this must be what they’re talking about having some fog lifted. Yes it does feel that way. Everything seems more real, I’m more alert, the moment of now seems to be more abundant. It’s cool!
I don’t approach these diets as diet per se, but more of as a way of life. Raw food diet makes a lot of sense for me. And they’re ready in 10 minutes!
morning - apple and string beans, blended. 1banana in mid morning.
afternoon - fried noodles (i was planning on easing in), 1 orange, 1 banana.
night - more bananas and oranges.
morning - apple and string beans, blended. This tasted good, actually. What a surprise.
afternoon - can’t remember. non-raw, I think.
night - big bowl of lettuce salad (I went shopping for raw food)
Day 3 - decided to be 100% raw.
morning - 2 bananas
lunch - big bowl of spinach and lettuce salad, with avocado and raisins. The salad dressing was okay, got an idea for next one.
night - bananas bananas bananas, oranges.
morning - bananas, oranges, watermelon. Mom told me to marinade the meat for steak, and I was grossed out… dead meat looks ugly…
lunch - kailan and papaya smoothies. Wow, such a green gunk, lol. But it’s actually good. 5 minutes prep time.
Obviously I need more variety. Also, I’m still confused about the green smoothies. Is it okay to combine fruits and vegetables? Doesn’t that break the cardinal rule of Food Combining methods? I also snack on fruits whenever I’m hungry.
I want to have a dehydrator. That seems fun! If can make my own potato chips and crackers, that would be heavenly.
