Days 70 & 71 (Wednesday and Thursday): Here I am again

Well yesterday, Wednesday, was a terrific day. I had two bananas for breakfast, and sipped a greens juice all morning until about 2:00 p.m. (juice was made from kale, parsley, spinach, celery, cucumber and apple). For lunch I had a small salad and a portion of pasta salad and a portion of quinoa salad. For dinner I had a fruit smoothie made from nectarines and peaches.

Today was another story. For some unknown reason I just went anti-organic ... a buttered roll for breakfast, a slice of pizza for lunch, and a cup of frozen yogurt for late afternoon snack! I think this is to be expected when a sudden change in diet -- as I've been (fairly successfully) doing -- is undertaken. Kinda like three steps forward, one step back. The pizza really surprised me, as I hadn't had a craving for dairy and bread/dough like that in a very long time. (The salad bar in the cafeteria today was the pits - maybe it's what made that pizza look more alluring than I'd have liked. :-(

For dinner, I'll have a variety of fruits I've already cut-up and are "ready to go." Hopefully, that fruit meal will offset the crazy fare I ingested today.

Summer has hit NYC big time -- it was 77 degrees at 7:00 a.m. this morning -- and it's 3 weeks until summer officially begins. So much for a spring like the ones of childhood! This morning's weather reminded me of many Hawaii mornings ... sunny and clear with blue skies and cotton-ball clouds. It inspires me to get out of this office on time in the early evenings so I can catch some daylight after work.

I thought I'd post a link to a rawfood related website or blog every day just to see "what's out there" on the subject. Today I picked "We Like It Raw." There are some amazing "before and after" photos on a lot of these sites -- ranging from 1 year raw to 5 years or more. I'm in it for the long haul ... I'm excited to see how my body is changing. It's gradual for me (due to a wacked thyroid, which I've just begun taking sea vegetables and fresh water algae to help rebalance). A friend of mine recommends "golden brew" therapy to cure all ills. I'm very close to taking him up on his recommendation.
