Isn't it fun to imagine that you're a chef? The raw just lends itself to creativity because you almost can't ruin anything (well, almost; I seem to have a talent for fixing, ruining, and fixing...and it all comes out just fine). About the cycle stuff: yeah, me too. Being "of an age", I'm never sure if it's going to be regular, since I had missed 3 back in the fall BEFORE cleansing and raw...and I had hot flashes, but not sweaty ones. Well, guess what? I cleansed, went on raw and haven't had any flashes since and I missed one cycle due to a January D&C. I think cleansing and raw have set me aright. Weird, but not so weird...my body's getting younger! (only in my dreams; naked, I look EXACTLY my age... ) Never mind...physically, I'm convinced that the MC and raw have had a positively tremendous physically altering effect on me...and I'm not going back to the pre-MC me, ever. (Wow, I'm emphatic this morning )
I get soooo hungry when it's "that time.." Anyone else, besides Nance and me? I get very tired for one day, too...the day before. I was going to ask if this is normal, but what's normal, except what's normal for each of us?
I made Cohen's pizza this week, delicious. I made a HUGE batch of Nomi's Sunny Paté, one of my all time favorites. But a strange thing is happening: nothing is tasting quite right to me and I'm wondering if it has to do with the extended cleanse and a too-quick return to solids. I'm also finding that because of the hot, humid weather, all I really want is fruit and my eyes are way bigger than my tummy at this point. Let me tell you, eating a whole watermelon in the course of 24 hours is NOT a good idea But it certainly was scrumptious after apples, oranges, and bananas in Ireland.
Don't you all find that summer produce is an inducement to eat differently? It's now blueberry season and I'm really looking forward to those smoothies...
Okay, children, time to book....have a great day everyone, keep the love I'm sending you and send back the empty container so I can refill it for another shipment!
