I have not been successfully following the BG Challenge this month. I need to be a lot more prepared so that I have adequate ripe fruit at all times. I stayed raw but under-ate the first few days of the month, and then went back to cooked salty dinners. I had I had a great raw day today, and will possibly try again for the full 30 days in November, but honestly, the sad fact is, I may be unable or unwilling to ever commit to this diet. Let's face it, it's been almost 7 years of "transition." And realistically, I would probably have to stick to bananas, dates and lettuce most of the time in order to afford it, which doesn't appeal to me. I might feel better if I marshaled my resources and got through 30 days in a row. We'll see.
On a positive note, I got a fresh order of dates from Mecca Date Farm and love the Black Dates.
I have also decided to not buy any more salt for our home. My husband has agreed to this, and the kids are not really happy about it, but they still will have access to condiments that contain some salt, and they have seemed to accept it.
Also, I have been loving my hikes at the Mississippi Palisades. The beauty of fall almost makes up for the cold/ damp weather. If you ever find yourself in Savannah Illinois, you have to check it out! Click here to see awesome photos of the views.
Hope you all are doing great!
