Woke up another pound down! Whoop:)
I have been feeling really good on this diet today. Maybe I’m hitting a bit of a groove?
I think it’s important to note that meat and I have never been best friends. I was a vegetarian for a year. I generally eat fish or chicken if I do eat meat. The occasional steak or rack of ribs is a treat to me, but not a norm. So the idea of cutting meat is not a big deal.
What I am missing is warmth.
Maybe it’s because I live in Canada and I began eating raw exactly as the cold weather hit my part of the country. I find myself just wanting something to warm me up. Obviously, raw food is not going to do that. Thus, herbal teas and coffee are still part of my diet- part habit but more out of the desire to feel warm from the inside out.
My kids are having pasta tonight, with a side of salad. I, of course, am abstaining. And honestly I don’t feel too bad about it this time.
Here are my eats for Day 4.
One banana, sliced
Two handfuls of red grapes
Sprinkle of cinnamon (this felt a bit like a treat, oddly)
One pear, sliced
1/4 pomegranate (seeds only, of course)
Homemade Larabar (cashews and dates) with a few shavings of coconut – I didn’t even try to make this into bar this time- I just piled it in a bowl and gobbled it up. I sprinkled a few leftover pomegranate seeds in there for good measure:)
Handful of walnuts
Huge salad:) – one head green leaf lettuce, one whole avocado, a few chopped baby carrots, one baby cucumber, two stalks of celery, a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds.
I had originally planned to have HALF a pomegranate in my salad HOWEVER someone thought those juicy seeds were delicious and, well, ate them all.
The way he's looking at that salad – Hahaha!
