Doing good again today on staying all raw, and getting a hard-learned lesson or two as well. The first is physical: my feet hurt more yesterday and today than they have in a long time, and I know it is because I am detoxing the awful things I ate this past week. The other lesson is that I should not let out all my enthusiasm and reasoning, etc. about eating all raw vegan diet to people who do not aspire to that themselves -- unless we are very close and I KNOW they won't take offense and understand.
I emailed one person where I just "let it all out" and was surprised to get an email back saying I should reexamine my relationship with food and relax, etc. That let's me know I went overboard in the wrong place. I MUST, MUST, MUST remember that what I am saying is very outrageous and/or threatening to many others.
I went foraging for dandelions today in new neighborhoods nearby. I found a lot, but it took a long time as they were just a couple or so "here and there," and they were the type that took a lot longer to clean, but at least I got them!!
I do miss the watermelon in my green drinks, but oh well. Today I made a green drink with 3-4 bananas (can't remember), blueberries, apple, half a pear, water and dandelion greens. Wasn't quite sweet enough so added a little raw honey and it was okay.
Oh, and at the store I picked up some mung bean sprouts. (I should start sprouting those myself!) I washed off a bowlful and poured the bit of leftover dressing and salad from last night's cucumber-tomato salad. It was quite nice.
If anyone here knows how to pray or believes in praying, would you do me a favor and pray for me that I can stay on this raw diet? It is so important to me to be all-raw at least 21 days before I leave here, and now I'll be leaving in just about 21 days. Idea being that it will not be such a huge struggle once I have been "abstinent" from my "drugging foods of choice" for at least that long. And I believe that people praying for you really helps. I will pray too. Thanks if you do!!!
