Guess what! I went to Canada and back and I STAYED RAW 100%!!!!!! I AM SOOOOO PROUD OF ME I COULD CRY!!! Here's the menu I took with me:
Raw Almond Butter
Organic Raw Honey
7-8 Flax Crackers
A deluxe Salid from my Kitchen
On the airplane I fixed Flax Crackers with Almond Butter and Honey for the rest of the Crew and they LOVED it! I'm gonna have to carry Alissa's book with me because I keep telling my flight crews about this "diet" and wound up writing the information down on napkins for them to go get the book!
I wasn't sure if customs would let me take the fruit into the country, so I had to eat it all before I got there because I could foresee the scene: Me jumping on the counter screaming, "NOOOO!!! YOU CAN'T TAKE MY BANANAS! YOU CAN'T MY ORANGES!!! YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE THEM!!! I WON'T LET YOU!!!!" Then, I would proceed to stuff all my fruit in my mouth...my cheeks would expand to the point where they would explode and fruit would cover everyone in the room!!!! Whew...I'm GLAD I didn't have to go through THAT!!!!
Anyway, I'm safely home now and incredibly proud of myself. And, I was working in first class too!!!! I did not even have ONE BITE of the FOOD!!! NOT EVEN A BITE OF BREAD!!! And, it really was NOT hard for me to stay away from it this time. I think the success was due to being MENTALLY PREPARED and DETERMINED to remain RAW. When I got home, my hubby wanted some spagetti with sausage for dinner. So I made that for him and I made me some Zucchini Pasta with Marinana Sauce, using the rest of my Walnut Pate for a "meatball"! HEY GUYS, I'M ON THE BOAT!!!!
Punkspirit and Gwena, thank you for your comments!!! I felt like all of you were right by my side the entire trip!!!! I could just hug all of you!!! :) Boy, I feel like I'm floating above the world!!!:)
