I Impress Myself :D
...mostly because it is the busiest, craziest, most hellish time of year at work and through it all I am enjoying being raw. Where is this discipline coming from? It is most excellent. I'm actually not sure it requires that much discipline.
When I taste something that is sweet or salty now, it's starting to taste SO sweet or SO salty. I ate a sour patch kid today and I was never struck by how chemical and powerful it tastes. I felt like I could really feel the wave of happy-feely brain chemicals rush into my body, but it felt so artificial. It was a wild experience, not the "shove 30 sour patch kids into my mouth over and over again" kind of experience. Anyway, having an experience like that really helped me to reflect on how I consistently weighed 10-20 lbs more than I ought to have for so long. And I wondered why my body hung onto that weight? Buttered popcorn, that's how! I guess I really and completely justified a lot of the food I was making because they were "whole foods", just gourmet'd up in animal fats!
I feel calm and clean now. I feel like it's becoming just what I do, not a "thing" I'm doing. I can't wait to see what recipes James has marked in the new Ani Phyo cookbook I just got! He's liked everything I've made that's raw so far, so I gave him a license to pick out what he wants me to make over the weekend
This is nice.
