Today I went to a church ladies' dinner. I went for the socializing and brought my own raw food. I had a green smoothie and lettuce wraps (guacamole, "cheese", wrapped in butter lettuce). It was so delicious and satisfying! I hadn't had any cooked food whatsoever, no even a bite to taste of anything cooked since the 18th, and here I was surrounded by the smells of fancy home-cooked food and it wasn't even tempting to me. It didn't even look good. I felt really good and satisfied with my simple raw meal. I find that increasing the green smoothies and other greens really makes a difference at curbing cravings and making cooked food not at all tempting or desirable to me. The men were serving the ladies and at dessert they just plopped a large bowl of cooked apple crisp and ice cream, even though I said no thanks. I guess they thought I was trying to go on a diet or something. But it was so easy to just smile, say thank you and then push it away from me. Cooked food looks yucky to me now already. Just looking at it makes me feel grossed out and I remember how I'd feel if I were to eat it and how alive I feel on raw. The only thing is I wish I had brought a little raw treat for dessert but hadn't thought of it beforehand. So when I got home I whipped up some lemon pudding from Alissa's book, it's delicious! So anyway, just really excited about this, I really feel like I can do this 100% !!!!!
