Lately I’ve taken an interest in raw food. I never thought I’d be going towards this path, but here we are. My breakfast is a Sun Warrior shake (minus making the nut mylk myself, the meal could be raw in the future), my lunch is a raw salad with raw bread and my dinner is usually cooked. I haven’t touched a baked dessert in a while and I don’t know if I even want to. I think baby steps are best with anything and taking your time to read about things, become educated and think clearly before making drastic changes. Two meals out of three isn’t bad. It’s not really that hard and I do enjoy spiralizing and assembling my food rather than slaving over a hot stove. Uncooking with the dehydrator is a bit of a pain as things take longer than what I’m used to, but the results are worth it.
I could see myself becoming fully raw in a year or so and I don’t think I mind that at all. Less impact on the world and I’m sure my body will thank me.
The funny thing is, I feel like it snuck up on me, as if I was going along just la de da and then BAM – raw food. Where has raw bread been all my life!? I’d much rather eat this than anything. I’m also INCREDIBLY excited to get a juicer to make crackers from the pulp. The thought of that makes me way too happy. I suppose I like gadgets and look at the appliances as toys of sorts, but they’re also tools to help and that gives me a certain satisfaction regarding my health. I’m looking forward to the day that I don’t cry in a changing room, that I actually smile when I walk out and don’t just head to the large section. It’s a win win really. My path to health is a work in progress, I’m happy I’ve come this far and I look forward to where else it will take me.
