Today it occurred to me, that it was no wonder I felt vulnerable, I wasn't soothing myself with cooked salty food. In fact I was eating very simple raw food and drinking water. I have this idea that the more I can stay raw even though I feel these vulnerable feelings the easier it will become in the future. I know this is true from my past experience.Of course there is more to living than eating raw food. I've been meditating and practicing yoga and doing my own personal spiritual work daily and it all goes hand in hand with eating raw. On any given day, I try to ask myself "What am I willing to do for my health and wellbeing today?"
On some days I feel very happy to share the answer. On other days I'd rather keep it to myself.
It's 3:15 PM and I've just finished eating "dinner"! I'm committed to eating three meals a day so I'm glad they've been filling meals. I feel slightly anxious at the prospect of not eating anything else today. It might sound deprivational to some people but having three meals a day has worked really well for the past couple of years. I'm more aware of feeling truly hungry and my digestive system is more efficient. Calorie and nutrientwise I feel that I've eaten enough for one day. Letting go of eating as a past time is the challenge.
