The “Hate” Diet

19 Nov

Thats what Summer Christopher calls it.  I started this raw foods diet on Monday.  Never done anything like this before. 

I have had a few friends who got pregnant after they did various “detox” things.  I am not doing it to lose weight, just to try to get some junk out of my system that might be built up.  I never stop to think about how many hormones are in the meat and dairy we eat (which I eat a lot of.  I love me some meat). 

So I am on day 3.  For the last few days I have been eating bananas and organic peanut butter, avacados, LOTS of fruit, almonds, cashews, raw green beans, and salad with oil and lemon for dressing.

I am doing okay but I was already tired of my lunch today.  It made me think, though:  We are so blessed to have such variety of food.  There are people in hundreds of other countries who eat the same thing every day and don’t even understand the concept of variety.

So I’m trying this at least until Thanksgiving.  We shall see.

    Becca hang in there! I have heard that the raw diet is an excellent way to rid your body of all the bad crap we put in it.

    Good luck! There are a ton of great raw recipes out there, you don’t have to get stuck with the same old stuff. 🙂
