So Yes i am back :)
This time with different goals and different attitudes. This change isn't just about me anymore, its also about the things i care about.
If u can't tell from the title i am transitioning into a raw lifestyle. I'm not sure if this is going to be for the long haul but i want to give this my all.
I am likely to tweak it here and there as i'm not so keen on giving up meat altogether (in the long run) but i want to see how my body responds. I believe in listening to your body and it will tell me if i find the balance.
This is definitely going to be a challenge but i am learning 'other' reasons for dropping the crap food.
To be brief its about discontinuing my support of an industry that frankly does not give a damn about my well-being. With propelling and using GMO's, harmful ingredients, destruction and pollution of our environment, false advertising and inhumane treatment as just some of the offenses i have in mind.
I want to drastically reduce my consumption of their products AND eat the best i can.
Today i am starting this journey by going Raw probably 50-60% to begin and see where to go from there.
I'm not gonna make it complicated but just start with eating apples, blueberries, cherries, apricots, carrots, baby spinach, kiwis, etc just as they are. But i will probably have one heavier, more regular meal for lunch/dinner just so its not SO drastic.
When i am in social situations (like this Sunday i am going to a BBQ) I am going to eat 'normally' but still avoid processed crap like chips and soda but definitely have some BBQ ribs or whatever it may be. I don't want to be one of 'those' party poopers. HAHA
What i bought at Safeway today:
I went to safeway before work. Oh i love not having to be there until 10am!
-Blueberries (a TON of them for Cheap!)
-Seedless Watermelon ---> It this gentically modified? Dang i didn't think of that
-Ice cream ---> i couldn't resist! Its been SO hot lately
-Lunchable ---> Also couldn't resist! LOL
Saturday there is the saturday market. While i do work that day, it isn't until noon so i can definitely make it. I read that its a good idea to go to those things toward the end to get even better deals but oh well i am just so excited. I get my first paycheck tomorrow (and i don't work) and i can't spend much of it but i do plan on getting some yummy things/
Yay im so excited!
