hi- don't know if i belong here~~~
i am about 70% raw, and this is where i feel best. i start the day with fruit (me and my ds have a ritual where we get up together and go share some fruit on the porch- a mango, some peaches, melon, etc), then some coffee
:, then when i get hungry i have a smoothie with local raw milk (sometimes i culture it before hand), dark greens, whatever fruit i have, some frozen berries (if i am lucky), and nuts if i want it. i will usually have a small fruit snack (an apricot or plum), then a big salad with ds when he wakes up from his nap. i usually have a handful of sunflower seeds on it. sometimes i make some raw veggie sushi during ds' nap if i need to snack. then i eat veggies and fruit until dinner-if i feel like i need it i will have some raw cheese during the day too. then i make something healthy (usually cooked) for dinner. after that, all bets are off and i eat some junky food before bed. honey roasted pnut butter (all natural, made at our HFS) with apples, white flour
pita bread, annie's mac n cheese, etc.
i have NEVER felt better. i have tons of energy during the day, and i never feel deprived because i get to eat what i want before bed. i dont ever want to go completely raw, but i feel so awesome now that i am eating raw during the day. i have only been doing this for about a month, but it doesnt feel like a chore at all- i dont feel like i am doing it because i know it is healthier- it feels normal. and i always know what i am going to eat for breakfast/lunch/snacks, and i dont have to worry about cooking!!!
