6 months today!

Isn’t that amazing! It doesn’t seem that long when I was feasting on cooked food and loving it but now it’s about as tempting as a pork chop would be. I can look at it and smell it but I don’t want it.

I’ve been getting ready to go to my son’s place and it takes longer than if I had a couple of kids to pack for. That’s the only thing I don’t love about this lifestyle. I have to be sure to take enough food to do me while I’m gone. My DIL is a good cook but that’s it–she’s a good COOK. She isn’t interested in eating very much raw. She’ll put carrot sticks and celery out but I can’t live on that. Even a salad doesn’t go very far. I’m not criticizing. Just stating fact. I was right where she is a year ago. Though I have always loved fruit and had my banana a day faithfully.

Church was a long way off today. The baptism last night put me behind but I’m glad I didn’t miss it. The brother of one of the girls came up to me and told me thank you for coming to see his sister baptized. He’s maybe eight or nine years old. I need to be leaving for my son’s right now but I still have to shower, dress, and load the car. I’m sure that they will understand if I’m a little late.

Breakfast was OJ, a fuyu, and a sapote. I was making Raw Mock Turkey Loaf, Matt’s dip, and Cashew “Cheese” (my own concoction), plus assembling a salad and using my spiral slicer for the first time. It’s neat! I have Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms in the dehydrator. I was sampling here and there and am just now getting around to a banana/spinach smoothie.

I’d better hurry so I can get to my son’s before dark.

    Congratulations! Your blog is truly an inspiration.
    I have always eaten a lot of raw food. The past year I increased it to about 70-80% daily. I don’t feel great when I make cooked meals even though the majority are lightly steamed.

    I love creating recipes and I am starting to create more raw recipes. The past year I have been eating my vegetables with very little preparation getting used to the various tastes/textures before I started experimenting.

    Thanks! I appreciate that.

    I’m getting so I don’t even like some of the more complicated raw food recipes. It seems the fewer the ingredients, the better. I’m getting more and more into sequential eating, too, just as a natural progression.

    I haven’t gotten this far restoring my pictures where they are supposed to be. The last ones of me that are up so far are on July 30, 2005. Here’s the link>> http://www.reallyrawfood.com/2005/07/30/112275607882459968/

    That doesn’t look like I do now!
