Lazy Day Raw Ramblings.....
Day 5: Feeling much more content and better today.
I haven't ate anything interesting today so don't feel like writing it down.
I need to go grocery shopping running out of lovely produce.
Also need to finish unpacking my kitchen stuff; 1/2 of it is in the garage
in boxes. We did a total kitchen remodel (gutted the whole thing)
starting in November. We are pretty much done now, with only a few odds and ends left, which is mainly me unpacking everything back. Everything is dusty and has to be washed first so I am procrastinating....I do that well!
Anyways I am really craving a young coconut, but haven't unpacked
my cleaver I use just for coconuts. I feel like the laziest person on earth today.
I've been gabbing on the phone all day with one of my dearest friends...I mean we have been talking for hours! Didn't take a shower till 2:30 and run and pick up the kids at 3. Also I didn't eat till 3 either when I got the kids home. this is highly unusual for me. I am usually very hungry come lunch time. Maybe it's all this raw food i've been eating. My blood sugar is so much better.
While I was in the shower my thoughts were mainly on what my attachment was to "cooked food". Sure I have emotionally eating at times, when bored or stressed, but my main attachment is my love for food! I mean I am a total foodie. I should work at Central Market; they have people there called foodies. Before I found raw, I collected cookbooks, and loved to cook. I love to learn about food and dishes from around the world. You can learn so much about culture, traditions, and the people of that area thru food. And I just dig that, learning about different cultures and people. I almost majored in that in college, cultural anthropology that is (but went with art/design instead).
Also food can give people the warm fuzzies...you know that warm comfort you get from that dish your mom has made since you were a kid, and loved. Or those recipes handed down from generation to generation. Food can transport you to a special time or place. It's a hard thing our relationship with food, attachments...anyways, I truely beleive in raw though, with all my heart and soul, I can "feel" it, I'm just rambling on about what my temptations are with my attachment with food....that's my story anyways...are you still awake, LOL
