LJ’s Raw Fusion Food Diary – January 13th

Cooked Food Compromises

I definitely have days where I eat more cooked food than others and today was one of them.  Recently I went back to boxing as one of my main forms of exercise and noticed that I am craving more dairy and fish.   Eating the “raw fusion way” has definitely put me more in tune with my body and its needs by “listening” to cravings; Some of them come from anxiety, some from yeast overgrowth (candida) and some seem to be valid messages about how I can tweak my diet for better performance and sustained energy and well-being.

Today, like most mornings, I started with a :traditional”  Green Smoothie.  On Friday I had a mishap with the Vitamix;  The bolt must have loosened somehow from my class the night before (very rare for a Vitamix) and we wound up with green goop over all of the counters and cabinets.  Saturday we never got around to making one, so I was definitely craving my “fix”.  The beauty of these green concoctions is that once you get in the habit of drinking them each morning and loving how they make you feel, it becomes second nature to have one to start your day.
