Breakfast- 2 oz wheat grass juice, 1 quart of strawberries, sliced and drizzled with raw honey.
Lunch- 4 mangos, 3 bananas
Dinner- 1/2 large watermelon
I identify myself as a raw vegan but I also know that honey is not vegan. Honey is made by bees and bees are not plants! I guess this is one of those compromises that I come face to face with at times.
After dinner last night I went for a 3.4 mile run in Central Park. During the run I felt strong and energetic. Afterward I walked home, relaxed, went to sleep and rested really well. This morning I woke up feeling vigorous and clear headed. Keeping fat consumption to a reasonably low level seems to work well for me. Everything about me seems to function better. It can be challenging because I enjoy eating rich foods and when I have a desire for them resisting them feels uncomfortable. I try to remind myself that I feel better when I don't eat the high fat foods. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don't. It's similar to when I first went raw, some days I succeeded and some days I didn't. Now, being 100% raw is not the issue; it's the choice of raw foods that I eat.
It's important for me to say that there are ideal raw food choices and then there are just plain raw food choices. When I first went raw I just ate raw and it didn't matter what it was. That approach got me started and then as I began to feel successful and studied more I began to fine tune my choices. Life can be a process of constant refinement. We never arrive; we just keep moving forward and upward on our path.
