The last day of the Detox/fast! I am proud of myself for maintaining this raw diet at the same time as pursuing a really demanding work life. I admit I had doubts at the outset. The few times I was hungry, I had some fruits/veggies or nuts to tide me over till the next meal. Ocasionally I was just not hungry at all even though it was meal time. It was a good awareness exercise to notice when I want to eat - and why. For instance, I noticed that some free-floating stressful situations have the effect of making me want to nibble on snacks (thank heaven for veggie sticks and nuts). Sometimes just a cup of tea is what is needed. This morning I fixed myself the green smoothie and reflected in the unaccustomed leisure of my Saturday morning that I plan to do the green smoothie more often, as it's delicious and fun. (I was not much of a smoothie fan before). I also have a refrigerator full of healthy ingredients - and leftovers. Although I was following a plant-based diet before, I've learned some new things about ways to prepare raw foods and definitely sampled some new dishes. I also liked the blog to follow what/how others were doing. So thanks, Dominique, for an educational and healthy experience!
