Oranges, one raw foodist's breakfast, Forget the chicken ova...

Breakfast- 6 large Navel oranges

Lunch- 2 pints cherry tomatoes, 4 oz raw pistachio nuts in the shell, 1/2 head Romaine lettuce, 4 each of Audrey's Pleasure Royal "Cheese" crackers and "Sushi" chips

Dinner- 1 slice Ms. Lillian's pecan pie, 4.5 oz shelled macadamias

I think I'll write as the day unfolds rather than save it all up for the end of the day.

Oranges and Honey tangerines are my favorite winter fruit.  I haven't eaten many of them so far this year.  Its too bad that the price is so high this year.  I think its due to the bad weather hurting the crops.  So far I'm buying only organic oranges, but with the price at $2.99/lb, conventional oranges at $.99/lb have my attention.  This is the time of year when most citrus is really ripe, sweet, and juicy.  Biting into a plump juicy sweet orange is a great way to begin the day.

I wonder how many officials in Washington, DC had a breakfast that consisted solely of oranges.  If they did, maybe our government wouldn't be so constipated.  Do you ever wonder how many chicken ova are eaten in a given city on a given day for breakfast?

I used to enjoy eating chicken ova, cooked as omelets and filled with fermented bovine breast excretions.  Even now I miss it all and think back nostalgically about it.  However, the longer I stay with raw food, the more my sensibility changes and chicken ova, bovine breast excretions, and decaying animal flesh are increasingly less appealing to me.

The psychological effects of our diet on the general population are a well-kept secret. I doubt you intended to open such a politically explosive can of worms, but could there possibly be a more effective tool to control the masses? Could there be another reason why Americans will defend to the death theiri right to literally "eat shit" ?

Mike, I did intend to open the can of worms. I frequently hesitate to do it because I am aware of my own years long process of educating myself and making the dietary changes that I've made, not to mention the emotional stamina it takes to stick with it. It is true that people would rather suffer and eventually die a painful ugly death (cancer, heart attack, liver diease, kidney failure, etc.) rather than make choices that support their own health and the health of the earth and its inhabitants. I suspect that our government, if not conscious, is at the very least complicit in feeding americans drugs and addictive substances such as cooked food because it subdues the masses and it fuels much of society's money making machinery.
