I'm finding that 'RAW' is a choice ya keep making.
Some things are now a natural part of how I live; for instance, I wouldn't dream of eating anything fried or 'fast food'... so that's gone.
I make green smoothies every day and that's second nature. I eat fruit, and I eat salads daily.
The thing that still gets me sometimes, and maybe this is just a winter thing, is dinner time. I still find myself feeling like I need 'more' at dinner time. I guess a lifetime's worth of 'full meal deals' doesn't leave overnight, or in 7 months, as the case may be.
I don't want meat n' potatoes, but I want something ELSE, something more substantial. And with raw, that means preparing in advance. Which is great, when I have done so... aheh... but pitiful when I have not!
When I haven't prepared, which is often these days, I get in my car and drive to the salad bar at the health food grocery store and eat a bowl of soup and have a salad. This, in perspective to my health goals, has become my McDonald's. (hey, it's all relative!)
And round and round I go. Is this entitlement? A reward for a good girl? Laziness?
Why yes, yes to all!!
I also think it's that it's the very fact that I give in to those hot SAD soups I keep reaching for these winter months. As you may know for yourself, the more cooked you add in, the more cooked you want.
And blech, nothing appeals to me less, intellectually. I still want that raw glow.
Maybe the lack of sunshine in this dreary, rainy Vancouver winter is messing with my thinking. It all seems easier in the summer!
But, I have to look at what I'm doing and put it in perspective. I still start my days with a green smoothie, supplemented with super foods, I still choose raw all day long, I still feel energetic. All in all, I'm still rawkin'!!
So.... um, never-mind. ;)
