So we’re trying this new thing. As we do. Because I’m always on a quest for better. To feel better. To be better. To live better. To live more simply and this seemed to fit all of those things. Jody and I are trying a 20 day raw challenge. Why raw, you ask... Well, because it sounded good. I listen to this comedian/amazing inspirational dude, Kyle Cease, and he said that his life was changed by eating raw for 90 days. And I thought to myself, gee, a) I have digestive problems, this could be good and b) I want a changed life!
First we were going to do a month. I don’t know why. Then we were going to do 2 weeks because, well, frankly that sounded easier and more than enough time to see the effect on my digestion and energy. And this was going to happen on January 2nd. So we had time to play with recipes and make some side dishes that were raw and learn more about it. Then two days ago we realized we were low on groceries and we should just do it now until Thanksgiving. So 20 days it is.
My goal is to do this and then blog everyday about what we did and what we learned. Today, so far, I’ve had a mango and fermented cauliflower so food wise, not much to report. But what I did learn is that a lot of teas are heated to keep them from molding. Now, I can’t say I won’t have tea this entire time. More food for thought.
So far I really just feel hungry. Since were shopping tonight I don’t have a lot of snacks prepared for moments like this so today will likely be one of the hardest days.
So stay tuned! Hopefully I’ll have some interesting things to report on throughout this journey...
