We met @ Yabba 2 last night. Fifty-nine people from DC & MD signed up 2 participate. I was hoping that a few of U VegSoul posters would get in on this as well, since U R trying 2 transition 2 LiveFoodism anyway. This would be a good way 2 prepare 4 a transition 2 vegetarianism, AND Raw Foodism. We R supposed 2 journal everyday, so I'm just going 2 write mine in here. Each daily entry should consist of the following: 1. What did I eat? 2. How did I feel? 3. What did my stool look like? (Floating stool is healthy. Stool that drops 2 the base of the toilet is toxic.<I knew I was in big trouble right THEN>) 4. Name my emotions. 5. Note dreams.
I ate a Live Plate from yabba yesterday, ginger beer plus a vegan cocoa brownie (I know, I know). I was saying 'Good-bye 2 sweets' for the time period. This is a fast from COOKED FOOD & SUGAR. The Live plate consisted of kale, seaweed, avocado salad, and pasta.
Today I'm not eating anything. I'll get a Live juice from Yabba, and drink Deer Park spring h20 all day. This will be my 1-day a week fast from food, 2 give my body a break from digestion.
************************************************** Here R some notes I took last night @ the meeting, and Skai was excited @ the prospect of some of y'all participating in this as well, so I hope U decide 2 do so:
Naturopath Ian Noel-recommended physician Sunsplash Healthfood store on Reisterstown & Fallstaff sells sprouts in bulk. Spring H20 and distilled H20 is 'dead' according 2 raw foodists, so add a spritz of lemon 2 it 2 give it cells before drinking. *Buckwheat greens R complete protein. It's good 2 i.d. a buddy 2 touch base w/ twice a day during this fast, 4 support & encouragement. Visit www.natrualzing.com, which is a RAW Foods colony out route 70 in MD. They sell all kinds of good stuff 4 the Raw Foods Enthusiast. JOIN the on-line group email@example.com, which consists of raw foodists from the MD/DC/VA area. There will be discussions about this fast there. Enzyme Nutrition-is a recommended book about eating Live EVERYTHING, including dairy, & meat, cuz cooked food is addictive. Visit www.rawfoodwiki.org, a website organized by one of the participants, where U can add info about raw foodism, as well. Agave nectar is good 2 use as a sweetener in herbal teas, which is the only hot beverage we should be drinking. Tony Robbins has a CD called "Get the Edge", where he talks about enzymes, and their effects on the system. RECOMMENDED by Baba Kauna, of Sankofa Dance Theatre. ****Tofu is NOT raw. The blocks have been formulated from the curd of COOKED soybeans. The key 2 live kale: Add lemon, as it breaks down the enzymes which cause its stiffness, & gives the texture of sauteed kale, even though it's not. ---JUICERS--- Omega, costs $189, Jack La Lane<available on-line> costs $150, also see www.discountjuicer.com 4 good deals. &&&FOOD PROCESSORS&&& Go 2 National Wholesalers 4 a good price on a Food Processor.
Nuts R hard 2 digest raw, but if U soak them 1st 4 12-hours, the enzyme which is difficult 2 digest is released.
Oooo baby I like it raw. Oooo baby I like it RAAAW!(c)ODB- Shimmy Shimmy Ya
