Breakfast- 1 1/2 lbs green seedless grapes
Lunch- 7 Bartlett pears
Dinner- 8 Medjool dates, 1/2 large head of celery
The grapes were perfectly sweet; they had that off white almost carmelized color that I assume is from being at the maximum stage of ripeness just before beginning to ferment. Has anyone else noticed that the Bartlett pears have been particularly good this year. Maybe it's just my body craving some element unique to Bartlett pears, but I have been loving them for about a month or so.
Last night I unexpectedly ran into a friend who I don't see very often and he was beaming as he told me that he's been all raw for three months and he's loving it. I asked if he's experiencing the sharpness and clarity of mind that goes with it and he said yes and also that he doesn't experience slumps during the day like he used to before beginning to eat only raw food.
When he said that he's spending a lot of money on food I resisted the impulse to urge him to eat more simple meals of plain fruit or vegetables. Maybe he'll log in here and read today's excerpt here from Dr. Graham's Perpetual Health Calendar.
By the way, if your celebrating Thanksgiving with raw versions of traditional food, take a look at the cranberry recipe that I've posted here in the recipe section of this site. It's very good!
