Tuesday Jan 22
I am new to raw food and this for me is day 2. (i guess) I am about 75% raw now and hope to go to 100% in a day or so. My DH is a meat and potatoes SAD guy and I now am just making 2 dinners, basically, his dinner and I have a really BIG salad. Last week I was eating a big salad and just the chicken or lean protein from the dinner. I had made a big heavy bowl of fettucini alfredo for my DH (its his favorite) last monday. i was so ill that night and the next 2 days. I was over at my friends house (who are going 100% raw and have been for about 1 month) the following wednesday after a pitiful run where I felt like I was getting punched in my pancreas. They gave me some rejuvelac and made me a salad for lunch. I felt amazingly better after about an hour! I decided to research the rejuvelac and make some. I have been drinking that as of yesterday and today. I will continue that everyday.
I felt so bad from that dinner that I decided to change my diet. I have been feeling "fuzzy" and tired for a long time and I assumed it was fatigue and stress. I will be tracking these sort of feelings through my blog. I will also be testing my fitness as I train for another Ironman triathlon in July.
I eat breakfast and lunch on my own, so that isn't a problem. But last night I ate my huge awsome salad and then ate the other half of the chicken wrap I made for him! UGH!
I made my first green smoothies yesterday and this morning. I like them a lot! I find that a handful of herbs really brightens the flavors.
Well, thanks for reading, any tips would be appreciated.
