I am responsible for what I eat...

Breakfast- slightly less that 1/2 watermelon

Last night I attended a benefit held at the Lawrence Country Club.  Being somewhat concerned about my raw food options, I had made an advance food request- a fruit course and a vegetable course, all raw.  The club's staff readily accommodated me and both courses were abundant and beautiful.  With food combining in mind, I asked to have the fruit served first, followed by the vegetables and appetizer salad.  The good natured waitress didn't understand that my requests were about eating only raw food; she kept trying to offer me strawberry shortcake!  I had taken a couple of extra treats in case the raw food wasn't plentiful.  As it turned out, I ate them just because I wanted them and not because I needed them.

When I make the effort to plan ahead I can get the food that I need.  I am responsible for the food that passes my lips.

That is wonderful! As a whole foods cooked Vegan (I ate high raw and lightly steamed foods) I would always check the restaurants out before dining most were very accomodating. I recently transitioned to all raw and have eaten out once, business engagement, the staff was very accomodating. I agree when eating out planning, if you have the chance, is imperative.
