Hi. I have been pushing back the time when i was going to write this blog until now when it has become ridiculous to wait any longer. Hum. I said i was starting 100% raw food on friday, but actually i havent been able to. I have been raw for breakfast and lunch since then but cooked for dinner, and not the good kind of cooked. But tomorrow is a new day. And i will keep on trying til i get it right. This said though i have been eaten raw very nicely. I have been careful to try and eat all the alories i need, roughly, i am not calculating everything. And i am doing better than i have ever done on raw food.
Saturday: breakfast:3 bananas wrapped in lettuce leaves
Lunch: cooked( will not name culprits)
Dinner: a delliiiiiicious mega salad of pineapple, chinese lettuce and flat leaf parsley. That was heaven
Sunday: breakfast: 3 bananas
Dinner: cooked. Was on my course in traditional chinese medicine and could not do any better
Monday: 3 bananas wrapped in lettuce leaves
Snack: apples x5
Lunch: mega salad same as saturday, pineapple+ chinese lettuce+flat leaf parsley/ 3 bananas
Tuesday: breakfast: 3 bananas but felt like i should have eaten double that once i left for work, so will do that
Snack: 4 apples
Lunch: smoothie made of 8 medium bananas, handful of berries and chinese lettuce
Any day i am hoping to get rid of the cooked food and eating a coup,e of raw meals instead.
That is the most bananas i have ever eaten, and happy to notice blood sugar levels going down slightly, as i am diabetic i will keep close eye on this. I also just received a raw food book: raw extreme manifesto by Fred Ho and at first i thought it would be great, and now i am not so sure after reading a few pages. I normally hate any form of extremism and that is what he suggests to do as a better way of living. Hum... We will see. Maybe i will still find great ideas in there who knows. Have a banana day. :)
