Here I am, checking in again. I got up before the alarm went off this morning but I spent so much time answering posts on the forum on Yahoo that I almost didn’t have enough time to do my vision therapy. I shaved off a minute here and there and finished up just about when I needed to.

Breakfast was OJ and a banana/mango/pear/romaine smoothie. Maybe too many ingredients and the mango wasn’t as sweet as some but it was good. I didn’t have time to drink it at home so I took it to work. Didn’t get it down before I had to go to a department head meeting and people were saying, “EEEE-ewww! What are you drinking? I told them and they wanted to know WHY. I said that it tasted good and it had all sorts of vitamins and minerals in it. They finally left me alone.

I didn’t have time to eat my snack but I lived. It was either raining or trying to all day so I didn’t get any sun, either.

Lunch was a banana/pear/spinach smoothie plus half a large cucumber and some Campari tomatoes.

I’d taken pineapple and kiwi for my snack so I had some when I got home. The acid in both about did my tongue in. Then, when I ate my tomatoes, it really burned. Later, I had a large salad of romaine, cucumber, purple onion, and half an avocado dressed with lime juice, seasonings, and EVOO. I used the EVOO to soothe my tongue but I don’t know if it did that good a job. It still feels a little tender. Maybe I should put some directly on it. I don’t think I will, though.

My granddaughter’s recital is tomorrow night and I plan to be there so my update may be a little late.

Better get to bed!

    Tommie,

    Congratulations for standing up for yourself and your choices day after day! It happens to me occasionally and it’s extremely draining (I’m not one who liked to stick out, but with raw foods it’s pretty inevitable). You seem like a very confident, self-assured woman and I only hope that I will feel the same contentedness with myself in the future. Your strength is an inspiration to me.

    Thanks for your compliment! After being a life-long vegetarian, I’m used to standing out, diet-wise. Someone told me today that my smoothie looked like pond scum. He asked what it was. I told him it was pond scum. Then I told him it was bananas, a pear, and romaine. Who knows? He might try it sometime. Look at yourself as a beacon of hope in a sea of cooked food addicts! We spread the word whether we want to or not! Stay with it, Liz. This is the best thing that ever happened to you.
