David Wolfe was right

Hey, for those of you who want to know…and if you have this problem…you’ll want to know….the David Wolfe remedies for constipation worked.  I took about a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar with my meals…and things have been working again…that fast…thank you David Wolfe!

I went to a banquet/buffet tonight with lots of yummies.  I took my salad with raw dressing and yogurt…(and watermelon for my dish to pass)….I’m not even embarrassed anymore to bring my own food…my salad though was huge…it was a pot luck and Eric said people were going to think that I just took my own pot…ha ha…but I don’t think anyone really noticed…and it’s ok if they did.  The sugar got to me a little, the look and the smell, but I chewed some sugar free gum and got over it.

I still like the raw food that I’m eating, but am ready for something new….I keep dreaming about the sweet potato pizza…and I may have it when we’re not so busy…right now it’s actually easier just throwing these salads together and having yogurt or kefir…adding cauliflower and peas this week gave me a boost and some variety.  Reading stories about raw people and their transformations makes me want to stick with it for the month and see what  it will do for me…but many of them do admit to not sticking 100% with it all of the time…but I think most of the time.  We’re going out to eat after Brett graduates next  Sunday…and I will keep mostly raw, but to have protein, I’m going to have to have processed cheese or cooked fish or meat….Cea HOW comes first for me…but this has been fitting in well.  I’m taking a mini class on Thursday to learn how to ferment raw foods….sauerkraut sounds really good right now…really good.  I’m going to get some oats ready to sprout tomorrow…I’ve been eating sprouted wheat berries for breakfast with stevia and cinnamon, sunflower seeds, banana and strawberries….good stuff!  I also finally got a melon that tastes good…and it was really good…that will be with my breakfast tomorrow too.  Well, I’m done eating for the day so all this talk about food needs to wait until tomorrow : )

Happy Memorial Day

Oprah imageHope you had a great weekend…mine was good for getting things done and seeing people…it had a nice rhythm. I have stayed raw…actually I’ve been obsessed with reading about it…but that’s me obsessive/compulsive. I just found out that Oprah is leading the way for a 21 day cleanse…go Oprah! I’ve got to tell you, I feel really good…and it’s only been 11 days…I am still drinking coffee too…lets not get too radical, right?

The past 5 or 6 days my food has been so easy to make and satisfying. I was craving cauliflower and looked up that it has sulfur in it and it was something that I’m in need of…I’ve also been constipated…who would think that you could possibly get constipated eating all of these vegetables? In “Eating for Beauty” by David Wolfe, I read that its important to build hydrochloric acid when going raw to break down the foods we’re eating…eating all the cooked foods and animal proteins lowers our bodies natural ability to do this….and will constipate you….so I’m taking some of the suggestions like having apple cider vinegar with my meal (salad) and adding back some salt…I haven’t been eating any…but it’s the organic Himalayan Sea Salt…I’ll let you know how it goes…there were more suggestions…but I can’t give away his whole book.
