Hi guys! I’m feeling a little down tonight, but I decided to write anyway. This cold is getting to me. I can’t warm up for anything. I think part of it is the raw food and part of it is the blood pressure meds I just started taking. I am used to being hot and sweaty ALL the time. In addition it’s been in the 20s down here in South Louisiana. I’m going to Boston for two days, where there’s currently a blizzard going on, and I’m really not looking forward to the cold, although I can’t wait to play in the snow.
I decided that I’m going to incorporate some cooked food in my diet. I don’t want to be sick every time that I do decide to indulge in something cooked. Also, if I eat some cooked food then I can warm it up, and I think that being warm will make me feel so much better. I’m going to aim for 80%-90% raw daily, with a few 100% days each week. I think that transitioning to 100% raw will be easier and more sustainable if I make it a gradual, long term change instead of diving in head first.
I really believe that this is THE way to eat to live. I have seen so many positive changes already. There are people around me who are listening to the message of raw food, and I believe that I can help people by example. The more research that I do, the more I realize that I don’t have to be perfect at this. Almost perfect is plenty good enough.
