Back to Life
It's all about you...
During my first trip down the raw road, I realized that this was a lifestyle change and not a diet. It definitely changed my relationship with food and changed what I felt was food and what was poison. Although I've eating mostly sad for the last few years to be sure, it's interesting how many things come back to me as if I'd been doing this all along. I remember how I was obsessed with food before, or rather with the whole planning of it and keeping something on hand so that I don't sabotage myself when I'm feeling false hunger. I remember that a very large part of my day used to be consumed with planning, sprouting, soaking, dehydrating. But I also remember what it was like, at a certain point, to just crave simple foods.
That is what I'm most looking forward to; craving simple foods. It became fruit for breakfast, spinach and sprouts for lunch with some lemon tahini dressing and salad for dinner. Tonight, I had my first little taste of craving the simple foods. I threw some alfalfa sprouts (I sprouted a ridiculous amount this last week) on a few romaine leaves and it was the most awesome meal! I tried some lemon tahini dressing but it didn't fly. It tasted so much better just bare.
I so look forward to even more simplicity, although I know I need to always keep dehydrated crackers on hand to kill any spicy or salt cravings. So far so good. My only real problem is that one of my co-workers loves my crackers so much that he's just begging for more constantly. Who am I to say no to spreading good food? His appreciation for the afternoon treat will keep me providing him with as much as I dare spare.
This week, down 6 lbs. Very excited to see the old me. :)
