I made it!
I did what I set out to do an ate raw for a week. The funny thing is that, now that I can have anything I want, I really don’t want that much. I thought about all the options I have and decided that I need to keep raw food as an ongoing part of my diet. I just felt better after eating more fruits and vegetables than I do after eating a steak or some ribs. I know to some this sounds weird but, I was a little grossed out at the thought of a sausage patty or a biscuit this morning so, I went with a different approach. I had a bowl of oatmeal, two strips of bacon, a banana and a pear for breakfast. For lunch, I had shrimp, green beans and an apple.
I’ve decided to set a goal of making half of what I eat raw foods. It’s way too easy to pick up a meal and the only “vegetables” would be the slices of lettuce,onion and pickle on the burger (okay, I guess french fries are technically potatoes). So, I need to make a concerted effort to put real fruits and vegetables on my plate or in my bowl. Eating raw will virtually guarantee that this happens.
Okay, o, technically, I didn’t cross the “finish line” but, instead, completed a tough leg of my race. Hopefully, a second wind has kicked in and I can keep going.
