Raw Food Log, 2008, 9/3, is raw food easy?...skipping the organic wine tonight

Breakfast- 5 peaches, 1 banana

Lunch- 1/2 large watermelon

Dinner- small handful of goji berries, 3 very large tomatoes sliced and drizzled with mock Peanut sauce from Jennifer Cornbleet's Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 people- tonight it was made easy for 1!

A couple of days ago I called to catch up with my friend Rick Waynick who lives in Newport News, Virginia.  Rick told me that he's been reading my blog and that in my writing I make raw foods seem so easy.  I was very quick to say that that is not necessarily the case.  I've had greater ease with eating raw recently, but it is a very different way to live, and it does not always feel easy.  There are so many influences on our food choices -fitting in with others, what our family ate when we were young, navigating restaurants or choosing to not eat in restaurants, addictive food issues, our level of fitness, how we feel on any given day, the availability of organic produce, detoxification symptoms, living with others, the list goes on.

Leading a raw life does get easier with time.  I've gotten way  off  but I have continued to comeback.   As long as  we keep coming back to the raw way, the answers about how to make it work  in our individual lives  will unfold if we want them too.  Does it feel difficult sometimes?  Yes.  Does it feel easier?  Yes.
