Raw Food Log, 2008, 7/3...

On Thursday, July 3:

Breakfast- 1/2 lb red seedless grapes, a 1/2 gallon smoothie: 1 head Romaine, 4 bananas, 2 Valencia oranges, 2 cups water

Lunch- 10 large juicy sweet red plums

I've always had difficulty getting my mind around the concept of Dr. Graham's July 3 calendar entry.  I believe that in adopting healthy habits such as leading a raw food lifestyle, our body can heal and repair itself.  So how does this jive with Dr. Graham's quote?  I asked him about this once when I saw him and he described it this way.  If you hit a tree with an axe, it will, in time heal, create new growth and cover over the wound.  However, within the tree, a scar will always be there, even if the tree is healthy.

I'm on Jinjee's (of http://www.thegardendiet.com/) daily email list and yesterday she share her thought about General Mills purchasing LaraBar.  "Yesterday I read about Larabar being acquired by General Mills. Today I read that 600 Starbucks coffee shops are being closed down. I think these moves in the corporate world reflect a shift in human consciousness - we want to be healthier!  In joy!  Jinjee"

I agree with Jinjee!
