A Different Kind of Raw Commitment
My brother is the only person I know that appreciates ALL my raw foods. So much that when I mentioned the possibility of making and selling raw food snacks at the Farmer's Market he pulled out pencil and paper and started brainstorming ideas. I mentioned it to my husband and the next day he went to a friend's house and came home with one of those portable tents all the market vendors use. So, there it is. My family is excited about it. I think I just made a commitment to give it a try.
My husband, daughter, and brother all helped me do some Spring clearing today. Not cleaning, CLEARING! We tackled that room in the basement where everything goes to waste away until we (usually me) can part with it. We are going to have one heck of a yard sale.
I was too busy to fuss with food. Wasn't hungry anyway. I ate some good stuff yesterday, (like cashew-mac fettucine), but I just wasn't into it. My stomach was bothering me a bit, and I have a cold sore coming on. I kept it plastered with some of the Really Raw Honey (unfiltered) and that seemed to keep it from swelling up to much. It really annoys me because Thursday I'm going to Victoria Butenko's Green Smoothie Revolution, which is sold out, and I really don't want to have a nasty cold sore on my lip. I have been plagued with those since puberty. So annoying! Anyway, I want to eat less for awhile and today was a good day to begin.
Breakfast: half a canteloupe blended with ice
Lunch: apple and pear juice
Dinner: coconut creme poured over sliced strawberries
The coconut creme was blended water and meat from a white coconut. I had saved half of it from a few days ago. It kind of set up in the fridge. I also had a few cashews and macadamias soaking (leftover from last night's fettucine). I put it all in the vitamix with a spoonful of Really Raw Honey. I shared it with my brother. He raved about it.
My stomach still feels strange. I'm going to give myself a break and continue eating light tomorrow, but I will be sure to include something green.
