I decided for various & sundry reasons to return to my raw vegan lifestyle. Having been 100% raw vegan for 3 1/2 years before wandering back to the land of the cooked, I missed all the raw vegan yumminess I’d experienced (both physically & on my plate), not to mention all the aches, pains & ills that drop in on me for a visit (& never seem inclined to LEAVE) when not raw. I’ll be honest: I’ve flip-flopped on raw for the last year. I started all raw then stopped, then started, then stopped, then started…. You get the picture. I noticed what was missing was a real COMMITMENT to the process! I’d say I was going raw until the first plate of fried rice, rice & beans or sopapillas drifted across my consciousness & then I was DONE!
I’m actually marking my calendar now & I’m on day 3! I draw a cute little green sprout each day so I have some little ritual, something to look forward to doing. Yes, I know it’s a silly, teeny-weenie thing but sometimes it’s the littlest things that keep us motivated. (Like having to write down every penny you spend or every bite you eat suddenly makes you pause before proceeding: Do I REALLY want to face “twinkie” on my list of things eaten today?) So, I’ll keep you posted on my progress, occasionally post some pics of what I’m eating these days & anything else I can think of that might be helpful. ‘Til then, catch you ’round the ether!
