The Raw Truth Day 7
I am learning some things about myself, which is a huge reason why I'm doing this. I want to take away the comfort of food for myself. I don't want to rely on external measures anymore and I've done more that my fair share of that!
I feel RAW.. in mind, body and soul. My emotions are all over the place. It is very uncomfortable.
That being said, I'm happy I'm doing this! I realize this is probably par for the course and I'm just trying to be in the moment and not get too caught up in the uncomfortable feelings and cravings and even hunger! Physically I've felt so hungry but when I eat I feel like I want to vomit. Very odd.
Today I think has been a little better than yesterday.. Last night I was very close to giving into temptation... I am not even close to feeling that way today.. and physically I may be doing better too...
I've been experimenting a bit with my dehydrator and that is great. Right now I have my first loaf of spelt essene bread in it! I think that will help... for dinner tonight I'm eating some zucchini/sesame flatbreads with cashew veggie cream cheese, mustard sprouts and tomato. No pic though.. its so dark in my apartment!
I was craving salty buffalo wing tofu so badly last night... so I had cauliflower with a cashew 1000 island and Pete's Wing Sauce... this is where my High Raw comes in... I would so much rather eat this than the tofu and wing sauce... so if using a bit of sugar free sauce allows me to stick to my guns, then so be it!
I had some leftover salad from work, so I added sprouted lentils and sprouted quinoa to it...
Can't say I'm a fan of sprouted quinoa... I LOVE the cooked grain so much that it seemed like a tease.. maybe I think of it as a separate protein and carb source I might like it more?
All in all, I don't think I could do this without Green Smoothies... I have been drinking 2 huge ones each day.. and they calm me and I can tell they are nourishing.
