So what does it mean to be "sort of raw"? I juice in the morning (raw) and I drink coffee with cream (not raw). For breakfast I enjoy fresh fruit (raw) and sometimes whole grain toast (not raw). For lunch I tend to eat big salads with raw homemade dressing (raw raw raw). In the evenings I cook a meal for my family and add lots of raw elements. For instance, two nights ago I made veggie tacos. I filled small whole wheat tortillas (not raw) with sauteed onions, garlic and zuchinni not raw). Then I added dark leafy greens, shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, salsa fresca (all of which is raw). They were delicious!
Some days I get on a kick and make it a game to see if I can eat all raw all day long. Its fun and good for me! And some days, like yesterday, I take my son to Krispy Kreme to share a doughnut and a milk. He had a great day at school and deserved a treat. So did I. For me, all my food choices must be balanced and sustainable. All raw all the time would be a train wreck at this point in my life. But, I really enjoy striving towards a diet that includes more and more raw food.
Breakfast this morning was a pint of Green Lemonade and a 1/2 cup of coffee with half and half. Then when I returned home from boot camp (by the way, class today was awesome!) and a jog I had a huge bowl of fresh fruit. It was so pretty, I had to share it with you...
So that's the news.
I'm sort of raw and sort of not.
