Feeling great, no soreness from long run, chocolate almond cookies

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

In spite of running 13 miles total yesterday I don't have any sore muscles and went ice skating for 2 hours today. I also walked dogs for about a half hour.
As far as food I'm getting more in the habit of eating raw. If I cook vegetables I stir-fry them in healthy oil, usally virgin coconutoil for only a few minutes. I'm going to start using my raw cookbooks and videos more.
Dinner tonight was mostly vegetables with very little protein and fat so I decided an hour after dinner I was hungry for some more protein and fat. I had a bowl of full-fat yoghurt with blueberries.
I also think that I may be somewhat lactose-intolerant since I don't feel very good after drinking milk, but don't have any trouble with other dairy products at all. I may give raw milk a try tomorrow to see if that makes any difference.

I've ground some almonds into almond meal in the food processor and made some raw almond chocolate cookies by adding 100% Ghirardelli chocolate, a little milk and coconut crystals as sweetener, We enjoyed them but no cravings to finish the plate, we just had two each. emoticon

    Thanks for the comments. I like to stir-fry all veggies that I don't eat raw in coconutoil and add seasonings like garlic, hot pepper, lemon juice and sometimes a little raw honey. I also like a little sesame oil for seasoning. Since I use coconutoil almost exclusively I get it by the gallon once a year from tropicaltraditions.com but there are other online sources as well. Since virgin coconutoil is a healthy saturated fat it will keep for a long time (at least two years) without going rancid and that makes it a great emergency food supply as well.
    Of course anything that is sweet or salty and has a lot of fat can still be addictive for some people to eat so use in moderation. One to two tablespoon of coconutoil for a large frying pan full of veggies is what I use to make enough for 3-4 people.

    WOW do you ever get the exercise in!!! I am hoping that once I get my brace for my knee I can start walking longer! Cookies sound great, I put dates, coconut, almonds and 2 tsp melted coc. oil in food processor and rolled into balls and yes I can eat 2 and be fine!
    hugs have a great day!

    Stir fried veggies in coconut oil sounds TOO delicious! How much coconut oil did you use, I want to try it! I have GOT to learn more about eating raw. Where do you get the virgin coconut oil?
