Breakfast- 5 large Fuji apples
Lunch- 1 large pineapple
Dinner- 1/4 cup dried pitted cherries, 8 medjool dates, 1/2 large head celery
The apples were delicious. This is apple season here in New York and I don't usually buy foreign apples this time of year, but my neighborhood health food store, Nice-n-Natural (673 Ninth Ave. at 46th St.) got in a shipment of apples from New Zealand and they've been sweet, juicy, and crunchy --not to mention well priced at 1.99/lb. The pineapple was pretty good too. I was wary about buying a pineapple because the last time I ate fresh pineapple it was in a fruit salad at a friend's house and it was not ripe and was so acidic that it burned my mouth terribly. Not so this time. I like buying and preparing my own raw food; that way I know what I'm getting, what to expect.
I know this will sound elementary to my techie friends, but I feel very proud of myself for creating and implementing a button so that people can purchase their advance Boutenko lecture tickets here on Raw Dish! If you're going to be in NYC on December 14, I hope you can make it to Victoria's lecture. She's not here often and it will be a great event. And, you can save $5.00 and get your advance ticket/seat here!
By the way, the way I've been eating yesterday and today feels great. Last night was close call; something cooked was calling my name, loudly. As always, in those challenging moments, if I can eat some sweet fresh fruit first(try saying that 10 times quickly!), the cravings for something less than healthy usually disappears.
