Boy is it late. Or is it early?
But I’m feeling good. I have recovered from my rant in the last post and am surrounded by the calm influence of green juice in my veins.
All week I have stuck to a high raw food diet and I feel wonderful. My mood has totally lifted and I have discovered that by drinking a freshly made glass of vegetable juice in the morning, my blood sugar stays stable and the only thing I need to eat before lunch is a piece of fruit. Even when I get hungry, it is like my body doesn’t really care. This mellow body feeling has been lasting all day. From one glass of juice! I can eat a light lunch and dinner and my body is totally at ease. No desperate feeling for salt or sugar - nothing.
It’s so strange because even though all that life stress is still there, it has somehow been removed from me and is instead skulking around an invisible barrier that sits about a foot or so away from my skin. What a difference this has made.
Along with the veggie juices (I generally use cucumber as a base, then add whatever else I have on hand, like an apple or two, a couple of carrots, a stick of celery, a handful of spinach, a nub of gingerroot and maybe a few radishes), I have been having a grapefruit everyday, and some avocado as well. I am aiming to get plenty of vitamin C in my diet as apparently this is a mood booster, and I want every kind of mood booster I can get.
Thanks for all your comments, which helped with my dilemma over what to buy/eat. I have downloaded a free seasonal food guide for Scotland and will be using it to try and get the most out of the local fresh veggie scene, but for some foods I will still be putting my nutritional needs first and eating what my body needs, even if it wasn’t grown here.
Hooray! To celebrate, if you would like to see some photos of some baby highland cows, click here.
Happy Easter weekend!
