Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

I have really felt drawn back to Raw lately. I started back at the end of March.
I am trying to transition but wow I am having a hard time this time. Last Summer it seemed to easy. This year I am slamming so many nuts and seeds (I did manage to soak/sprout them) that I can't believe it and I just ate like a third of a jar of sesame tahini!

I think I need the calcium because my body is really craving that stuff. I ate a third jar yesterday too.. and seem to really be wanting walnuts too. I ordered a huge 8# box of them and also truly raw almonds.. I know eating all the nuts/seeds is not good ultimately in the long run but I don't really know what else to do because I am starving constantly!

I start out the day with fruit.. today I had an entire cantaloupe and two bananas and was still hungry.

I also know it's not BEST to combine nuts and fruit but I just could not seem to help it.

I know I remember I read somewhere that Dave (trucker Dave) ate like a jar of raw almond butter a day for a while during his early transition. Maybe I am just justifying!

I promised myself this time not to be militant or fearful of not doing this perfect. I am sure that is what the problem was last time.. too much Black or White thinking. I made a huge salad for lunch! (I am still eating beans occasionally during transition).


Anyway I am so excited... I love RFR so much. There is no other place like it. I can't wait to jump in and participate!!!

Yes, lovely salad! I go through periods where I eat lots and lots of nuts too. But I am not entirely raw, just majority raw. I try to remember to branch out more and try other kinds of fruits and vegetables than my normal standbys. And eating different types of seaweed seems to help me with cravings too.

Yes the nuts and seeds....you are not alone on that one. I think (I can be wrong) it is also a craving for protein, if you are in a transition phase. Normally  those nuts cravings go away...but not NOW!!!! There are just so rich that I never make any dessert that has a based nut crust, just the top! On top of everything they are good for you, delicious, and sooooooooooooooooooooooo easy!!!

Try to eat the one you like the least (for me it is brazil nuts) ...or if you go out of your house just put a big hand full in a container and tell your self: that's it I don't buy or eat any more (I said "try" ahahahahahahaha)

Is your winter over? because that doesn't help with the complete raw food, especially this winter was a hard one.

Your salad looks delicious by the way.
