View Full Version : I am REALLY MAD!!!! well maybe not...
Dh has been gone most of the week at conferences and left me with 3 small kids, homeschooling, and no sleep (baby has been pretty sick). So, I find in the freezer some Newman's chocolate treats (caramel cups and peppermint cups). I used LOVE these. He brought them home from his conference. I am so tired and was reading about the delish sounding carrot cake in the other thread and wanting a treat RIGHT NOW without having to make it (need to make some crackers and cookies but have no energy to do it because I am spent) so I go downstairs and decide to cheat. I eat one caramel- not so good. Eat a second- it really doesn't taste very good- just a sticky sweet mass with little flavor. I stick the third back in the freezer and decide to try the peppermint- it HAS to taste better. Nope. It tastes like sticky mess with a hint of peppermint. Yuck. Now I have to go brush my teeth. WAAAAAAAAHHHHH I wanted a treat and they taste YUCKY!
Bread and such taste like sponges and feel like them too, cookies taste squishy and uncooked and have no flavor, and chocolate treats are yucky and WAY too sweet and sticky...
Well, I guess the raw diet is better than I thought. I really thought I was missing some things and the longer I go the more those things taste YUCKY. I sure hope my raw bread turns out tonight.

LOL! Actually ... it's NICE to get to the point where the junk that used to thrill ya now ills ya!
And - raw bread? Yummmm!

Yeah. I find a lot of things I used to like just don't taste good at all to me now.

Oh thanks for telling me that as I've been so tempted this week to blow it. I've been raw for 15 weeks and several times I've thought of just having a bit of something but haven't done it for fear of feeling sick afterwards. Then my sister tells me I will have to detox all over again which makes me rethink it all. Plus I keep hearing it never tastes as good as you imagine so I appreciate the reminder.
Off to try and figure out how to make spinach cheese balls. Need to do some experimenting.
Sounds like you have had a hectic week. Hang in there :)

yea.... i cheated several weeks ago- decided to have some meatloaf.... oh my, i felt like a garbage disposal. I was really surprised- i was a bit sick afterwards like i ate a dirty rat or something ..
i still love the smells ( i help out in the college cafeteria now uuf) but i would not put that stuff in my mouth :cool:

That is how I am starting to feel, too! I had a bit of kielbasa and sauerkraut in the crock pot tonight (meal made for hubby), and I could only eat a few bites whereas normally I would wolf it down! I felt like I had a rock in my stomach and I STILL feel sluggish hours later. That'll teach me! :p :rolleyes: :eek:
What a great point! Every single time I think that a nonraw item is going to be great and worth it, I swear to myself that it was not worth its salt. It's never worth it.

actually i had that meatloaf not because i Wanted it...i was more curious if i'd enjoy it or not ( i used to go craaaaaaazy about this dish!!!!!!!).... and i was actually happy i didn't like it :D i thought "ahhh that's my body telling me it won't tolerate such stuff any more"

I just wanted to say that even when I slip and am totally off raw I still don't like sad desserts any more, I am spoiled by raw desserts and they are sooooo much better then sad to me.
