So we have been eating [mostly] only raw foods since Friday (today is Monday). Why do I say mostly? Because, for real, I’m not not drinking a splash of cashew milk in my banana, spinach, and avocado smoothie. I’m not not drinking tea because the tea leaves were heated so they don’t mold. Is it as healthy and good? Probably not but I want a warm cup of herbal tea because it’s cold. And I want a dash of hot sauce on my giant plate of raw vegetables to make them taste amazing. So would some people say this isn’t 100% raw? Definitely. We are definitely not making ourselves crazy and insane over every tiny bit of anything that goes in our mouths. But we aren’t using that as an excuse to put commercial ketchup on our food either. We just want to see if this makes us feel better. Feel more able to enjoy and experience life by energizing our bodies with lots of raw, unprocessed fruits and vegetables. I think we can do that and put a little hot sauce (that does have a little sugar) on our food. You don’t have to agree. Jody realized he wasn’t sure the last time he had an apple. I mean, how crazy is that? That we used to avoid fruit because of the sugar. . .
So how is it going? Well, there are donuts in the break room at work so that’s pretty lame but I’m pretty unphased to be honest. We made the child a sausage with his dinner of raw jicama, carrot, and cucumber salad (we try to serve as an example of how to treat his body, but we don’t believe in forcing an extreme way of eating on him until we try it out first. If we get done with these 20 days and we’re like, “it’s the holy grail,” well then we’re probably not going to do that. . .). Jody said his mouth was watering over the sausage. It honestly smelled salty and ick to me. I really don’t feel like I notice much. I don’t feel extra hungry. I don’t feel like cheating. However, it is only day 4 so it’s pretty early to say. I did a pretty decent workout yesterday (Insanity) and we moved around a ton of furniture in the house so I guess my energy levels are pretty good.
I did have a wicked headache Friday night (day 1). It could have been purely coincidence. To be fair, I feel a bit beat today as well. . . but nothing too bad.
So here we are. On day 4. Go us!
