Ok, so after much reading, talking to hardcore Raw Vegans, researching, and pondering, I have finally made the commitment to start my Raw Diet. It is something that keeps presenting itself into my life, from various sources, and I am starting to see that the universe is trying really hard to convince me to try it. So after many months of trying to turn a blind eye to the obvious ( jumping up and down screaming) solution to health and wellness. I am here to say, "Alright, I will try it!"
My very good friend has been blogging on here for years. She has tried on different occasions to get me into the blogging scene, but I never felt that I had anything to blogg about. It seemed unnecessary, and at the very least I would have a difficult time deciding between all of my interests. I suppose, at the time I was just not ready, but now seems to be the perfect time. I feel like it will be the perfect way to help with daily dicipline...After all I will not be very willing to admit that I tried to juice a Chewy chips Ahoy!!! It also helps to keep track of my progress. So far today I have kept on track, it has been very pleasant and easy. I am sure it will not remain this way for too long...lol. I am excited and happy, and I feel great!
I started my day out with a smoothie; 1 apple 1 banana 1 pinapple spear small piece of cucumber kale and a half a scoop of a Vegan Vitamin powder with a small handfull of ice
For lunch I had a salad made of; cucumber, tomatoe, red pepper, green pepper, and red onion
For snack had a smoothie; 1 apple 1 banana frozen blueberries kale
For dinner I will have a salad made of; brocolli and cauliflower Red peppers
For snack I will have another smoothie
I have been drinking lots of purified water throughout the day, and I was able to stay away from coffee( which I know will become a problem as the days pass).
I am going tonight to get my champion juicer. I found one on craigslist for $75. It is fairly new and in good shape..Yey!! I have been waiting a while to get one, but it is finially close at hand! On the way home I will be getting some nice fresh friut to juice tonight..so I am sure tomorrow I will be adding to my food intake for today....and reporting on my juicing adventures...
I am a beautiful soul filled with light..looking to touch others with sunshine..and when I am down I trust that my friends will share their light with me. Such is the web of life, so I believe..I also believe in treating others, as I would like to be treated..I believe in Karma. I believe in forgiveness..even when it is hard to do...I believe in beauty within people..I see the best in others..and try to work on making myself the best "Me" I can be right at this moment...I believe in appreciating the moment..and letting those around me know they are special to me. Tomorrow may never come...live for the moment...just "Be". I try not to worry ...it does not change anything positively..I try to be Positive and happy..I respect and love those around me. I believe that energy should flow in a healthy way. Learning to give and to recieve is a beautiful thing..The most important thing is to care about the things that truely matter....appreciate the moments that make it all worth while..watch the sunset...and sunrise...watch the moon grow big in the sky...
Tommorow may never come..soak up today!
