Before finding raw last month, I was pretty close to being vegetarian anyway. I'm telling you this because I really don't like meat all that much. I rarely eat it. One thing I WON'T eat is lunch meat. It's so gross, I can barely look at it. I don't even like getting veggie sandwich at sandwiches places because of all the gross meat in there.
Now to point: I'm getting my period in the next couple of days and I can't control anything I'm eating. I ate a freakin' salami sandwich last night. I wouldn't eat salami if my life depended on it normally.
Raw as been easy and natural for me. Not too many cravings, I've been feeling satisfied and happy with my food. Now this period thing has derailed me. Any help with how to get through this? I can't be eating a salami sandwich every month. I'm getting sick thinking about it now. Ugh little bits of God knows what in there PUKE.

oh I'm so sorry!! I used to get mad cravings too. I'm transferring them to raw olives, dates and raisins. Dates and raisins are high in iron and also satisfy the sweet for me, the olives give me the oily and salty that I need. Maybe try experimenting with different foods to see what helps and keeps your focus on something other than dried pig fat and meat in a sausage! :D Sorry, just trying to make it seem less appealing! Exercising helps me out too. The crazy things that hormones do to you huh? Hang in there girl! You can find a way. xoxox

Haha thank you for the support, but honestly you couldn't make salami seem more disgusting to me than it already is. That's what is so shocking to me. It's like I get possessed by the devil.
I have some treats I made with tons of dates, I have been eating those like mad and you just told me why. The iron! I'll try eating some more and find something salty as well I guess? Hopefully it was just yesterday. Today I feel somewhat better.
shhh I have a secret. I also ordered a pizza with SAUSAGE but I threw it out this morning without regret, so I guess the worst is over.

this month i am going to try bee pollen (i heard it has lots of protein and all of the amino acids).
i wish it was vegan but i need the protein until i can master some of these recipes with nuts
i read on here about bee pollen and taking magnesium supplements weeks before your girlfriend comes and visits
i get a terrible craving for cheese pizza (been vegetarian since teens so meat cravings don't happen like my sad vegetarian ones)
i hope the SAD demons let you go soon
