Raw Cooking-Day 40

Been a busy day and I feel sooooo much better now that I'm starting to get this enormous appetite under control. The hormone balancer seems to be working nicely and so do those brain sharpeners. I do have some episodes where I'm just starving and my stomach is full. I feel dizzy and almost sick. There is a lot going on upstairs that needs to be straightened out. Haven't been near as hungry today-I actually made it almost 5 hours w/out eating anything. This is an accomplisment! I realized that eating SAD leaves you full for almost 4-5-6 hours because of all the fats and preservatives. Raw is sooo different. Almost every 2 hours I eat some days because of the lack of fats and preservatives. Gosh! It's been a chore to drag food around. Wish there were more raw food snack places and restaurants. Hubby is mowing the yard and I'm rawcooking. I've got nuts soaking and drying and I'm getting ready to make ranch dressing and rawritos to put in the dehydrator for tomorrow. My body is kind of saying "I want something more-not too heavy on the spices though" Been craving corn lately in those tortillas and chips. I've searched this forum and found some yummy recipes. I'm learning how this rawcooking works. I've discovered that I can make flax crackers by using flax seeds and whatever I want to put in it. I've been kind of craving spinach and cornchips. I thought spinach might be good mixed into corn tortillas. I am going to give this ranch dressing a whirl again. I did the egg salad again and it was so much better 2nd time around. We will try ranch again. A tidbit of wisdom: I try not to think that the recipe will taste just like something from SAD. I look at the ingredients and see if its what I like and give it a try. We are disappointed when it doesn't taste like the old SAD. Taste buds do change and some of the recipes kind of grow on you. When I went raw I decided not to try to re-create all of my fav junk foods-(mashed potatoes, cheese on everything, cheeseburgers, meatloaf, Taco Bell) just not sure how some of that would taste. I've just learned to give it up and realize that my body loves raw and the old person still wants that junk. It takes time to re-train the brain. I can already smell the rawritos!!!!
