Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hello Everyone! I have decided that today was going to be the first day of a transformation for me-mind, body and soul. I have been vegetarian for three years (did it cold turcky), vegan for six months (bit more of a challenge) and now I am ready to go raw--at least 90% for now but I hope to acheive a 100% raw food lifestyle.
Today I started out my day with a tall glass of water. I planned a breakfast of blueberries, strawberries and cherries, an orange and a banana. Well, I had all I could do to get through the berries and cherries--I couldn't even get started on the orange or banana. I was cringing with the last several bites of the berries and cherries! It is not that I do not like fruit--I gues I am just not used to it. I then drank another tall glass of water.
Also, I hope this is not too much information (TMI) but with just that breakfast and water I was in the bathroom to pee six different times within about an hour and a half. Is there something wrong?
Alittle while later I was feeling hungry again-so I ate the banana. On my way out the door I grabbed some sliced cucumber and to it a added sea salt, black paper and sage (are there any rules about useing spices raw that I should know about?) and an apple. I had planned on eating this on the way home from the dance class I teach-but I got hungry AGAIN and at the cucumbers on the way there!! I was able to save the apple for the way home. PS-I wanted to drink more water on the way home but I couldn't because I pee AGAIN really bad.
When I got home I was HUNGRY! I resorted to eating 2 stuffed grape leaves which I do not believe are raw and 1/2 a vegan sandwich ( 1 slice of ezekiel bread, vegan mayo, vegan cheese, vegan meat, tomatoe and onion)---needless to say I am NOT feeling too good about this. And that brings me to right now. Wondering what to eat next-althought that 1/2 sandwich is still at work!
Last night I baught a TON of fruits and veggies I just don't know exactly what to do with them-other than just eat them which can be a little boring. I am thinking able baking a dressing for a salad from avodado and almond milk (which is not raw). Also, I have waayyyy more fruit that I do veggies--is this ok? AND, I love roasted brussel sprouts and I do have some uncook ones in the fridge--does anyone have a suggestion for these guys? I am a little tempted to roast them.
Lastly, in the question I answered when signed up for this god send of a website it asked if I wanted to lost weight. Well, yes! I do want to lose some. I don't think I have too much to lose-about 10-15lbs would be healthy. However, I do not feel I am going to make that happen if I keep sneaking in these cooked, non-raw, processed vegan foods. Please help.
I have to pee again! :/
