I feel really good today. Feel like I"m getting centered and becoming more clean. I have a feeling this is going to take awhile. The more I read and watch David Wolfe and others on Youtube. My body is such a science and all the damage that has been done can take time to clean out especially since, I cant' really afford all the herbs and minerals and superfoods, etc. or mentally ready for a fast.
I went to Henry's our local somewhat health market.........they have organic and more - not quite a Whole Foods store but, fairly close. Sprouts which is a bit farthar is our Organic Store but, more expensive then even Henry's so, I go to both but, I didn't want to travel all the way into town so, I just went to Henry's. I bought lots of Vege's and Fruit - mostly organic. They didn't have any organic melons so, I settled for non.
Anyway, I came home washed everything and then went to try my Food Processor and make salsa. It didn't make it chunky. Not sure how to do that. Maybe, everything needs to be seperately chopped, not sure. However, it came out really good except I put a whole jalenpeno in it and it is HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I like hot salsa but WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!
The tomatoes were really ripe and I get worried about things spoiling so, I might just start fresh instead of adding. Not sure yet.
I was a nibbler today and that was fine. I don't think I really ate too much either. So, that is good. But, sometimes with nibbling it's hard to keep track.
Hummmmmmmmmmmm, so let me see.
I had a 1 1/2 Bananas & a few bits of melon
Then I worked out, Fed the Horses and did manure duty.
Came in and had a few bits of guacomole and salsa from yesterday with a couple of chips
Then in the store I had 3 bite size PB pretzels (I know it's not RAW)
Then on the way up the hill coming home I ate a plum and a small handful of Raw Pistachios - yum.
Then I got home let the dogs out, fed the horses again, scooped more poop ;) hehehehe, and then I had a larabar, then an apple - all while making the HOT SALSA!
Fed the horses their last feeding after taking the dogs out, came in took my shower and my 1/2 grapefruit.
I know I sound busy but, I don't feel like I get much done..............isnt' that weird?
Oh and here's an interesting tidbit. Even though I ate a couple of PB pretzels I was walking through the store and for the first time I felt strong and no desire for SAD food even though I still snuck the pretzels..........habits die hard I guess. But, I thught tat was really kewl and Empowering. YAY!
