On Sunday, June 3, 2007...
Breakfast- 3 1/2 Raw Revolution bars, 1 pot fresh homemade ginger tea
Lunch- a large salad: 1 head Romaine lettuce, 3 Kirby cucumbers, 1 head celery, 3 very small avocados, juice of 1/2 lime
Dinner- 1 slice Ms. Lillian's Pumpkin Pie, 1 slice Ms. Lillian's Hawaiian Cheesecake, 1/4 cup Macadamia nuts
This is one of those days that I don't want to say what I've eaten- I mean really, candy bars for breakfast and cake and pie for dinner! In addition to that I'm afraid the raw police are going to come and lock me up for drinking Ginger tea. In truth I really like it. I slice fresh whole ginger root and I put it in the bottom of my ceramic tea pot and I pour hot(not boiling) water over it and then let it steep. The tea is very clear and has a spicy "bite" to it.
I can tell that I'm letting go of the Raw Revolution bars. I used to really like them but it's been a while since I've had one and I didn't really care too much for these. They're okay, they taste the same as they always have, but my taste is changing. Nothing tastes as good as fresh ripe raw fruit; I keep proving this to myself!
Dinner? What can I say? I enjoyed every bite. Sundays used to start at the Galaxy Diner at 46th and 9th with eggs, sausage, potatoes with ketchup, grits with cheddar cheese and butter, and a cinnamon-raisin bagel with butter and grape jelly, all of this washed down with 3-4 cups of coffee. As the day progressed it usually included several deserts from the local bakery, Amy's Bread, New Yorkers know Amy's.
I guess I'm trying to rationalize eating raw candy bars, cakes, and pies and I want you to understand what I used to eat and not give me a hard time about it. Whatever it's about, I'm sure lots of people can relate.
