my day started really good this morning... had a green smoothie and packed some nuts and carrots for university.
but then something absolutely horrible happened, I am still shaken :(. I am not sure if this is the right place to talk about it but I just want to get it of my chest.
I went to my law lecture, everything was as normal... but then the lecture was interrupted by a very load cry from a girl. we all looked to her, because the cry was out of this world! It came from a tiny asian girl, who was shaking violently, unconscious in her seat, blood coming out of her mouth. she fell down on her seat and all the other students in the room froze! It was so quiet No one knew what to do. The lecturer was calm and called for help, and I stared up the rows, hearing the screams from her friend who looked so in panic. it was terrible, I couldn't move, and no one was helping her, and I couldn't think anymore I could only hear my heart beating so load in my head.... finally a guy sprinted over to her, he was screaming "i can't feel her pulse, she is unconscious, I can't feel her pulse'. We all watched her dying - or so we thought... :(, we were told to leave after the medial proplr from campus finally came (it felt like 10 minutes, 10 minutes hearing, that she is not breathing...). I went home after that, completely in shock and thinking why, why, why didn't I get up and tried to help her- I had a 6 hour first aid course, I could have helped. I thought her death was my fault (i thought she had an heart attack). I came home, and started crying, my boyfriend tried to calm me down, but I was completely shocked!! I cried for hours in my bedroom and then decided to check on the uni website to see if there might be an update about the girls condition. And... the lecturer posted "For those of you concerned about student who had a seizure during the lecture, she was taken to hospital. She was conscious, coherent and able to walk (slowly) by the time she left with the paramedics." - I hope you understand my emotional state today. Roller coaster ride.
My boyfriend made me a tea, and some zucchini pasta (with ready made sauce) and later he made some sushi for me (I stayed in bed all afternoon today, feeling exhausted). He made sure I ate every piece, I think he was very worried about me...
I am so glad that the girl is in stable condition, I don't think I would have been able to live with the guilt of not attempting to help her otherwise.
What a day!
Sorry for this emotional break down!

This is day 1 for me....again. I don't want to wait until April 1st to post with all you lovelies, so I'm jumping in.
Haven't had much as I have slept most of the morning away. But I did make a small onion bread sandwich with spinach, tomato, and cukes. I also had a handful of grapes. Later on, I plan on having a big green smoothie, probably some avocado pudding (can't live without this stuff!!), and a huge ol' salad for dinner! And I'm sure I'll eat some fruit here and there in between eating all of that. Oranges, strawberries and bananas! :)

I am behind in posting a few days. I have eaten though mainly raw and I think on the days I don't post are the days when I eat something that is not raw:) What I am eating that is not raw are very simple things that I know can be replaced, so really it comes down to my will to replace something that is not raw with something that is. I will :)
The one thing different I have tried last week is raw cacao. I ended up buying a coffee grinder because I could not find the powder. So I grinded up the cacao nibs into a powder, cut up a banana, sprinkled a little of this powder on it and took a bite. It was very bitter! for some reason I thought the nibs would not be bitter grounded up! I ended up pouring a teaspoon of grade B maple syrup on it and mashed it up, then ended up having another one :) but I did wonder if I cannot eat this food because I needed to sweeten it if I should eat it at all, so think to try this again when I think to be craving chocolate and see if it takes the chocolate craving away, it probably is just a sugar thing, this craving chocolate, because truthfully I know the chocolate bars bought in stores are really more sugar than cacao.
Today I started with a green smoothie, spinach, a banana, assorted fruit, orange juice, water. I am upping my greens as my system is craving salads again, so will have a salad for lunch and for dinner, greens with red and yellow peppers, grated carrots and sunflower seeds and I have vegetable crackers so made an avocado dip last night of 2 avocados, minced tomato, red onion, garlic, lemon juice for any little snacking I might feel like doing throughout the day.
OH! a little quote I came across by Anais Nin that I thought so beautiful and wanted to share for the beginning of spring in the Northern hemisphere
And then the day came,
when the risk
to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
than the risk
6 pesto mushrooms
8 apricot-cinnamon cookies
handful of pumpkin seeds
zucchini pasta w/ marinara
