Feeling very cold all the time and the cold and damp weather has settled in. This morning just trying to heat myself up and thus did a bit of fresh rolled oats with water. Topped off with walnuts and cinnamon. Felt better I don't think that I cooked it for more than a minute so not sure how this translates as above 117 degrees but I liked the sensation of a warm meal to start off my day. I am keeping the philosophy of eating as natural as possible and eating my meals at home so that I know that no added sodium hits my food. It is easy to be seduced by excitocins, the added flavors when one eats outside and smells the aromas however that is what led me to be in this state of not feeling great and the tendency to overeat rather than just eat and be done with it. I am continuing to read 80/10/10 to get reinforced in my simple eating style. I can't say that I am not going to eat cooked foods ever during the fall/winter months perhaps focus the is 20 percent in my plate and 80 perfect the rest is raw. I am trying to figure this out so that I can survive the winter months with a restored health and aiming for improvements. I want progress can't do perfection too rigid and I already tried that in the past and it definitely sets me up to fail big time. trying to figure this out and also be forthright with myself and others about what is going on. Love and Light.
