4/16/09 - Getting Back to Raw

Breakfast: 1/4 of a Perfect Cheesecake

I ate a handful-size (or more) of something cooked three days in a row this week, plus once or twice last week. For me, that is A LOT of cooked food!

About 10 am today, I finally realized that I had emotional/self-protection issues that have been keeping me from eating & living the way I feel best. So, I'm done.

I went to the kitchen and ate the first raw, nutrient-dense thing I could find. It was a small handful of cacao nibs.

Lunch: 1/3 of a head of cauliflower with sweet lemon marinade

Afternoon indulgence: I intended to make a chocolate-topped version of my perfect cheesecake (we finished the other one this morning for breakfast), but I was impatient. The chocolate sets up quickly, but the cheesecake doesn't, so I ended up having cheesecake soup with chunks of coconut-flavored chocolate swimming in it. I don't recommend this combination of flavors. :P

Another afternoon indulgence: veggie juice - 1 head green leaf lettuce, 5 carrots and the stems & core of 1 head of cauliflower

Dinner: 1/8 of a chocolate-topped cheesecake - since it still hadn't set up completely, I was able to eat it more easily by turning it upside-down.

Bedtime: 1 c. sesame milk


  1. Love your cheesecake!

    It's so interesting how food is so tied up in emotions..

  2. hope you feel better! the green juice should help you detox.

  3. Melody - thanks! My son loves it, too. ;)

    Aimee - Yeah, I wasn't feeling necessarily bad; just a little heavy. It did help - I love veggie juice!
