No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
A video pushed me over the edge of indecision yesterday as to whether to do low carb or raw. It was one of Dara's along with her sweet 86 year old father "Herbie. He is visibly, strikingly changed by eating raw food. He was a very handsome, distinguished man to begin with - before Dara got him hooked on raw. His mental clarity has improved by leaps and bounds. He looks very sharp, very healthy. Any arthritis he had is gone. I believe he said he can now walk 17 blocks (maybe it was 7, not sure) instead of 2. And apparently he is taller (something to do with spinal stenosis improvement)
So, today, except for coffee, I've been eating only raw and already I feel so much better. "Plumbing" is excellent. Rings are looser on my finger and I am excited and not fearful anymore that this is what I am going after - health and renewed happiness that comes from real food. I am just waiting to hear back from Dara about some ingredients she uses in one of her coffee substitutes and then I plan to buy them and make it instead of my usual brew. I haven't eaten much today but I am not starving - just living on excitement I think- excitement about what I know is ahead for me. I even went out and bought personalized license plates for my car but I am not sure if I can upload the photo. I will when I can do it properly. I tried earlier and it didn't work. It says "RAWWORKS".
Today I had two smoothies: pineapple/cucumber and another, banana/celery (so sweet and good) and a handful of raw pumpkin seeds. Then for supper I made a coleslaw with one of Dara's raw dressings and it was so yummy! I ate half of a large bowlful. Am still not able to upload my photos for some reason. Just had my computer cleaned up and they seem to have moved things around. Not sure. I'll have to call a friend to help me with it. My friend came today and fixed me up so that I can upload pics again so here is the coleslaw I made yesterday with the raw salad dressing I mentioned that is so delish.
