Breakfast- 2 pints blueberries
Lunch- 1/2 watermelon
Dinner- 1 cup pistachio nuts, large tomato salad, small serving of mock mashed potatoes(cauliflower)
The macadamia nuts that I ate for lunch yesterday eventually began to feel like gravel moving through my digestive system. It's the same old story; I ate too many nuts. However, I was really proud of combining them with a large tomato salad! Oddly enough after eating Miss Lillian's carrot cake the discomfort I had been feeling subsided and I have felt fine ever since. I knew it was too many nuts when I was eating them but I pushed the envelope hoping I could get away with it. You can't fool mother nature!
This morning I was waiting in the checkout line at Whole Foods at Union Square. The line was 4 people wide and 10-12 people deep; there were a lot of us. I began to take notice of what people were buying and practically no one was buying produce. People had bottled juices or other beverages, crackers, protein bars, little packaged snacks, fruit flavored yogurt; it was all packaged food. What has happened that people don't view fruit and other produce as food? What are the reasons that someone would choose pasteurized yogurt with canned fruit and added sugar over fresh blueberries? What thinking or logic goes in to that decision?
I'd venture to write that my breakfast contained more usable nutrition than the small container of yogurt I saw a man buying today.
By the way, when I first logged on this morning, I absentmindedly glanced at yesterday's blog title and my eyes grew wide because I thought I had written "Raw Food Vegans Stink!" I was relieved to see upon a second glance that I was mistaken.
