Raw Vegan Recap
Saturday, July 14, 2012
Well, the raw vegan experiment is done. The results? Inconclusive. I have a lot of fruit allergies, so I dealt with a lot of congestion/sniffling/sneezing this week. I slept more than usual, but it's possible I wasn't taking in enough calories. That's hard to do when you're just consuming fruits and vegetables and a few nuts. My skin looks better than it has in years, though. Lost a couple of lbs., spent more time than I ever have in the kitchen. Grocery bill was actually slightly lower than normal. It would be hard to do with a 9-5 job. Not impossible, just difficult. I definitely plan to incorporate more raw fruits and vegetables into my diet, but I'd have to commit to the lifestyle for a much longer period of time to determinte whether it was for me. I'm glad I did it, and I plan to do another 'raw week' sometime in the near future. Thanks for all the encouragement!
