Here's a pic of me 100% raw for one week. My hubby is sitting next to me...we are at his Palm Harbor Homes awards banquet.

We had lots of fun. I had forgotten that it wasn't last night that took me off 100% raw when I gave into temptation and ate two Newton O's and a cup of soy was actually at the banquet. I had 2 glasses of red wine, and ended up eating a small amount of cooked veggies, which was on top of a bed of white rice. I got the vegetarian meal. I did not eat the rice. It looked really gross, and the cooked veggies were actually not very good. I did eat two salads though, which were great!

After the banquet, we went to a blues bar and watched a live blues concert. It was sooo fun. It was at Antone's in Austin, Texas. Really neat place. I like how they don't allow smoking in the clubs there.

I also had two more glasses of wine while we were out having fun that night. It actually felt really good to get out and let loose. Me and Chris don't get much time this was a real blast.

The next day, I felt a little tired, but I didn't have a hangover. After 4 glasses of wine you would think I would! I don't really ever drink, so I was surprised!

Well, I'm back on 100% now. I had a cup of coffee this morning, which made my throat feel yucky. I don't like feeling like I need to cough for two hours straight...which is what coffee makes me do. Next time I need a pick me up, I will have some almond milk ready, and will make myself a cacao drink.

I am really happy with the way I'm looking and feeling. I plan on staying 100% from now on. Last night the reason I gave into the cookies (which were organic by the way) was because I have been craving something cooked and chocolaty ever since I went all raw last week. I gave in, but I feel good about it. It was only two...and they were satisfying. I need to have some raw dehydrated treats around so that I can snack on them for dessert when I want...when I want something heavier.

My stomach has been so empty feeling though... I feel like I'm starving half the time!! I will be happy when that feeling goes away.

Well, I hope your day is fabulous. I know this was a long post...but I have much to say. Next time I will blog about the wonderful synchronicities and sweet emotions I have been experiencing. Until then, have FAITH<3>



  1. Hey, are you still High raw now? I found that a great way of staying 100% is definitely to have a stash of ready made Dehydrated goodies as you said. I always have cookies of sorts in the cupboard for that 'need something simple to pick on' moment and even have chocie treats in the freezer too. whenever I get that choc craving feeling, I simply take the choc macaroons or raw choc out and in 10 mins it is ready to eat. This technique has saved me many a moment ;0)
    Bon courage

  2. Are you still eating 100% raw? Many raw foodist drink wine because it is considered a fermented food (plus they just don't want to say no, lol). Loulou's advice is what works for me as well. I also like to eat a lot of fruit and drink a lot of water. XOXO

  3. Hey You Two!

    I just finally read your comments. It has been so long since I've blogged!

    I am not 100%...but I have gotten better. No more wine, definitely. I am feeling much better. I am about 95% raw right now, and am very comfortable with that, because I have a 7 year old and a husband who I have to shop for, so I am just grateful that I'm able to be around 95%.

    Thank you for all your encouragements!

    Love and Light,
