it still goes.
currently i am at about a 80/20 split raw/vegetarian.
its just working out that way.
i am happy with it although i do want to try to get creative enough to try some of the great recipes that have come across, especially the ones from Susan at Rawmazing
here is her latest recipe for Raw Spinach Mushroom Tart
..just delicious looking..
i had an exchange with my aunt about eating better and of course i suggested eating raw to her.
i told her that i have gone from a size 20 to a 16 and (i have only been on this raw journey since 7/4/09)
and i totally believe that its been mainly diet because i have slacked off on my workouts majorly and her response was that she "can't eat anything raw"
i didn't go any further with the conversation but i wondered if she thought i meant raw meat or something outlandish..
why else would she respond that way?
i just can not imagine a person not eating ANY fruits, vegetables or nuts..which is at the heart of my raw eating..
last night i arrived home late and tired and hating the fact that i didn't stop off to at least grab a few pieces of fruit because i didn't have a single piece
for one the kid is home and well, she is like a human disposal and i am buying very little because as good as organic is for you, it does not last long and i was wasting a lot of dough because i was throwing so much away
i am hoping that within the next few weeks we will start dehydrating
this will help push the raw quotient up
i am still finding it tremendously challenging in some ways and its simply a matter of creativity
in the beginning we were eating so many salads that i actually started hating them
but now i just try to make them as colorful and varied as possible and its not as much of a pain
i have added tofu back to my diet..
at this point its a matter of having something to eat and i am ok with that.
