Hey traditional foodies!
Is it really July already???
I've had a great week, as far as eating goes. Tons better than the week before when I went out of town, that's for sure! I've always done bad with company or trips, so I feel for you gardenmommy!
I've decided to do NT vegetarian style. At least for the summer anyway. Not that I care for the label, I just haven't felt that I need meat anymore (for the time being). Plus it makes sense for me to not waste the room in my stomach with meat when there is so much fresh fruits and vegetables available in the summer! But I am still eating raw dairy and egg yolks. That seems to hold me over very well.
Oh, but I still want to try the raw liver tonic once or twice. I've just had a gut feeling that I need it for some reason-like I'm depleted in something that it can help with. I'm just waiting to get to the HFS to get a good pastured source.
All I've been eating this week is raw fruit and veggies (including l-f), bean and grain sprouts, and raw dairy and egg yolks. Not that my ultimate goal is to be all raw, there's always been some stuff about the whole raw foods movement that has bothered me, but this week has pretty much been all raw except for the coconut milk for my smoothies.
It's more that my goal is a high nutrient, high enzyme diet. However my food needs to be prepared to make it that way, that is what I want to work for.
One thing that has saved me twice this week from bad cravings is making 'chocolate candies' by combining a few spoons of raw butter and raw honey, and mixed with nut butter, coconut, or nuts, and carob/cocoa powder. And sharing with my kids of course.
But it certainly helped me from going to get something or making something not so healthy!
I'm so glad I have such a great source of raw milk right now. It's only 3/gallon! Cheaper than the pasteurized grocery store crap. I've decided I won't compromise on raw dairy again. I'd rather go dairy free. It's that process that takes the vitamins and causes all the dairy problems people have. (unless you are truly allergic). Plus, I'm sure the vitamin A and D they add back in are synthetic and not very good, right?
sorry so long!
