Last night I went out to dinner with my parents. It was a very nice, upscale restaurant on the water. It was pricey, but I felt I deserved it. Not so much the food, but the atmosphere. I ordered mushroom ravioli with fresh arugula, and mushrooms in a broth. And yes, I ordered dessert. creme brulee.
When I was a cooked foodie, creme brulee, plus tirimisu was my favorite dessert. I know that these foods are full of bad things, but once in a while is not going to hurt, (cough) much. Yes I didn't feel great after, but lately I haven't been feeling great in general.
The whole experience was wonderful. As a child I cherished the moments of our family dinning out. Even if we ordered pizza in, I loved it. Being raw I have really missed this. The feeling of togetherness, having someone wait on you, trying something new and tasty, and you don't have to do the cooking or clean up! I don't live by a raw restaurant by the way.
Tonight, my dinner consisted of a carrot, apple, spinach, collard green juice and a BAKED sweet potato. Its getting cold out and I was craving one. I repeat, this will not hurt me. Well, actually, if I think about it, some cooked foods, nuts and seeds not sprouted make your body acidic. I don't know about a sweet potato though. Does all this sudden cooked food mean my raw diet is over? No, absolutely not, infact, I am thinking about going on a juice fast, I just have to research that a little more. I haven't confessed this to anyone yet, but I consume popcorn once a week. I pop it my self and add olive oil to it. I KNOW it isn't good, but I'm having a hard time giving that super delicious treat, up. Boy, did I struggle when it was time to give up peanuts, this will be the same kind of battle. Confessions are over, thanks for reading. I appreciate all of you, reading my blog and all, leaving a comment once in a while. Thank you
