Raw Food Log, 2007, 12/5...

On Wednesday, December 5, 2007:

Breakfast- 2 very large red grapefruit, 1 1/2 Navel oranges

Lunch- 6 large persimmons

Dinner- 2 large persimmons mixed with 12 diced medjool dates, 1/4 cup shredded coconut

I had an incentive to stay raw this week.  I had a photo shoot on Wednesday and I knew that I didn't want to show up looking bloated and puffy and blotchy.  It worked!  The photographer, without any prompting, commented that I have great looking skin and that I "must be living right!"  The photo shoot went great.  However, I'm not used to seeing myself in photos with all this gray hair.  People say it looks fine but in my mind I still see myself with a thick head, I mean a head of thick dark hair!  Speaking of photos I think its time to replace my main page photo here.  I like it but its two years old.

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and felt ill -like I was going to vomit.  My mouth began to salivate that pre-vomiting saliva and I got up and went to the bathroom.  The sensation subsided; I didn't vomit and I went back to bed.

I remembered that during dinner, my food had no flavor and I was puzzled about this while I was eating.  I had started out with 8 dates and in an attempt to have more flavor I added some more.  It never worked; my food had physical texture but no flavor.  Now I'm thinking that I had probably ingested some kind of contaminant earlier in the day and my body was trying  to tell me not to eat anything else.  Also, during the evening before bed, I was aware that my stomach was not emptying.  I was not in any pain or discomfort but I felt as if I had just eaten through the evening.  I guess that my body just needed to deal with something else instead I digesting the food which I had eaten even though I had no taste for it.  The body is so amazingly wise.  It knows exactly what it needs.  I just have to learn to read it's language wisely.

This morning I woke up and felt fine and energetic.  I don't have a tremendous appetite today but I don't feel sick.

I've missed writing.  I'm having an ongoing technical computer problem and it's hampered my ability to keep things updated here.  It's being addressed and will be fixed soon!  Also, if you're in the NYC area, try to come to Victoria Boutenko's seminar, Greens Can Save Your Life! on December 14.
