Slowly Progressing Back to Raw

I’ve had such a good food day today. I feel great! This morning I was finally able to make some green lemonade, it has been far too long!  I decided this morning that I don’t have to be all or nothing, just make some small adjustments every few days or week, or whenever it feels right and build up to  a place where I am free of cravings and eating very, very high raw!  Today, even though I was at a family picnic with sandwiches, and pasta salads, and cookies, and baked beans….you get the gist, my food day has looked pretty darn clean:

Green lemonade



Salad-with cooked garbanzo beans and some commercial italian dressing (Not ideal, I’ll survive.)

Pickled green beans

One bite of my Father’s brownie—yea that’s right, literally one bite!

Soy caramel macchiato

Don’t judge my caramel macchiato.  I am trying to get myself back to a place of eating completely gluten free and vegan while staying mostly raw.  If I’m getting back to being strict I’m going to do it slowly, it seems like the best thing for me right now.  I’ll tackle my one dose of sugar and coffee later.  Some people do respond very well to diving in 100% right away but I’m not sure how much that would work for me.  I know the first few days are the hardest, so I am going to take a week to seriously avoid wheat and dairy, like really do it, that’s a big enough challenge to tackle for this week!

Tomorrow is going to be a big challenge for me because I work at the coffee shop.  I have to condition myself to avoid taking bites of cookies and muffins throughout the night, even when they break!  Wish me luck. : )

Later punks! : P

    I work at a coffee shop too and I am the exact same way! Ughhh I was sooo good on being vegan for awhile and then came the cookies and brownies and scones. So I’m going the gluten free/vegan/attempt at high raw route too but I just wanted to let you know that I feel you 100% (and I am never giving up my coffee hehe)

      Thanks for backing me! It can so hard sometimes! And coffee is so hard to quit too! I go through phases, if a tall soy latte is the worst of my problems though, I think I’ll be alright.
