Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
You know when you feel like there are too many challenges to face? It's surprising what you learn when you get through them and look back. The last week was a challenge for me to stay high raw. One of my sons had croup and asthma and coughed for three days straight. Sleep deprivation does not lead to a happy mom or child. I'm happy to say I'm greatful for my juicer and blender for easy 'meals' and something my kids will consume when I'm at a loss. It's finally getting better at night and I'm hoping it doesn't catch hold of my other son.
On the upside we've been having fun making creepy goodies. I love this time of year. My creative juices get flowing. (pun intended)
I will be making blood of beet and peeled grape eyeballs for the kids. Witches fingers from a nut and date combination with almond fingernails. Pumpkin seeds were dried on low with the oven door open after the pumkins were carved. Now I'm trying to come up with more spooky food ideas that don't require too much effort or a dehydrator.
Being my first few months trying to go raw converting recipies has been...interesting.
I'm still finding cooking for my husband a challenge when I know my kids would eat raw no problem. It seems counterproductive even though it's a peace keeping act. I felt at odds this evening making roast beef and had to open the window for a bit of fresh air. I rarely if ever ate red meat before I met my husband and he's a real carnivore.
It's a challenge I'm hoping to glean a lesson from somewhere.
For now I'm going to stay focused on the little things that make me happy. Right now it's sleep!
Time to catch up on my Zzzzzzzzz's
