Heyyyyyyyyy!!! TGIAF! This week has flown by and I have no prob with that Any big plans this weekend??
So this morning, I overslept again since the pilot and I were up late finishing The Cell- what a bizarre and aesthetically crazy movie- so I made a superfast bfast before walking the puppers.
A piece of Ezek. with raw AB, 3 sliced figs and some goji berries:
It was super tasty and I loved the figs on there!!
The puppies and I went to the base trail for their walk. I walk them at least a half hour every day, no matter how busy I am. It’s done wonders for their behavior because they’re very mellow the rest of the day
When we got home, the puppies crashed out and I hit up the gym to pump some iron

-1/2 cup almond milk
-palmful of soaked raw cashews

Eating raw is easy when the food tastes AMAZING
I’ve received a few emails and some comments asking how I feel since I switched to eating raw until dinner two weeks ago. I figured I’d do a mini re-cap:
I feel invigorated, clean, light, energized and happy. Teaching has been easier and I have been drinking less caffeine because my energy levels are higher. Luckily, my complexion has never given me many problems but since I started incorporating more raw food into my diet last fall, it’s improved and has continued to improve in the past two weeks. I feel “lighter” even though I’m pretty sure my weight is the same– I don’t feel dragged down or get that icky bloated feeling during the day. Also, I don’t feel pressured to always eat raw.
Unlike almost every other eating plan, if you decide you want cooked food it doesn’t derail your efforts at all. So if I want something cooked (like in Tucson), I’ll go for it and not have to think twice. Eating raw is just something good you can do for your body. I don’t think I could ever be 100% raw (or want to be), but I will definitely continue to eat raw during the day.
Well I’m off to work, then teaching step and dinner with the girls.
See ya soon!!
I’m not big on labels, but what do you consider yourself as far as eating goes? Are you vegetarian? Vegan? Pescatarian? Quasitarian like me??
