Well I took a big break from blogging and raw food over the Passover holiday. I felt the difference in a big way. I felt very cloudy and grouch when eating my SAD food. Ate lots of meat and dairy and sugar :(.
It was that needing to hit rock bottom scenario in order to pick my self up and make a decision if I was going to do this or not. Well I am happy to report that I am back. I would say now that I am doing at least 70% Raw now.
Yes occasionally I will eat some cooked grains and once a week because I am a religious Jew, I keep the Sabbath. We eat bread (challah) and drink some l'chaims (a little wine or beer) and I eat some meat or fish on this day for the sake of the Sabbath to sanctify the day. I am OK with that. I know that I am in transition.
I have gained a lot of really sound advice from Matt Monarch and Angela Stokes that you can be in transition and that's also good. Angela advises just getting off refined sugars and processed starches is the first step, and I have made a commitment to that.
I feel good now about it and don't feel pressure. The proof is just by listening to our bodies. When you go raw and then pollute your body you know loud and clear what's went wrong.
Occasionally I stray, but my body lets me know what it doesn't tolerate. I cant believe that I was walking around feeling unwell for so long. I have a long road ahead, but I'm on the road and that's a good thing!
