Raw Seesaw

Well, here I am again.  After several months of eating cooked vegan food, I’m trying to get back on my raw regime. I don’t exactly know why, but I feel better when raw. I felt really great for the most part last fall when I was raw (98% or more) for almost a month. I haven’t felt that good since and I really want to.

The best reinforcement for eating healthily is noticing that you feel better when you make healthier choices. Most of what I eat is pretty healthful: lots of whole foods and fresh produce. My life is full of “nos”: no animal flesh, no eggs, no diary, no butter, no soda, no white sugar, no hydrogenated oils, no canned food, etc. But there are still plenty of ways to mess up and I do mess up more often than I’d like to admit.

After giving in to most of my cravings, I’m through, I’m done. An old Sheryl Crow song jumps into my head as I think of what I’m craving now: “All I want to do is eat raw food.” Ha!

However, I’m going to be realistic. I’m aiming for high raw right now for as many days as I can manage and hope that eventually leads to feeling as good as I did a few months ago.

Perhaps this is a sign that my stint on the raw seesaw is coming to an end.

Sorry this is the first post in a while. Even though I’m busy working on my business, I’m going to try to do better.
