Day 64 (Thursday): Loving this Amazing Weather!

New York is having the most wonderful SPRING this year ... just like the ones I remember as a kid, when we had to wear a jacket -- mucho sunny days and new life budding everywhere. It feels to me as if it coincides with where my life seems to be heading. I feel healthier in mind, soul and body than I have in years and I'm excited about what the future holds. All in all, I'm in a terrific "place" -- as they say.

I ended up running late to work this morning (due to an accident on six-lane Route 9, so all the traffic was diverted onto a narrow two-lane road that runs through about five Hudson River towns on the way to the train station).

Since I was a half hour late to work, I ended up grabbing a buttered roll on the run. During the morning, I had a banana and a small grapefruit. For lunch I had a large, mostly-raw salad with an olive oil vinaigrette for dressing. For a mid-afternoon snack, I had a chocolate coconut Larabar (a 100% raw fruit & nut bar).

Tonight I'll head downtown and get some raw food takeout from Pure Food & Wine. They have a "zebra lasagne" made of zucchini, fresh tomatoes, pesto and 'cheese' (made from ground seeds and nuts) assembled in several layers with fresh basil on top. It is a great tasting and filling meal all on its own. I'm going to try making it myself tomorrow night to bring to a barbeque I'm invited to on Saturday. (I won't tell anyone it's "raw food" ... I'll just call it "zebra lasagne" and see if it's a hit.) :-)
