Under the ‘Raw with Benefits‘ gorgeous eating system, I am free!
I am no longer a slave.
Similar to that first year after Bulimia, I’ve found my way. I do not count calories, but I know how much I’m eating. I do not plan meals, I rather eat when I’m hungry. No day is the same. Each day is different. I do not think about overeating because I simply do not have that urge. And I’m losing weight! Down six pounds from the first of January, the size 2 jeans zipped semi-comfortably this week. Absolutely fabulous!
This WIAW provides recapture of yesterday’s food! Yay!
Nine o’clock in the morning.
Two o’clock in the afternoon. Quick lunch prepared by my gorgeous friend, my raw nutrition mentor. Pictured food is Kimchi and Green Smoothie consisting of burdock, spirulina, maca root powder, chlorella, blueberries, kale, mung bean sprouts, coconut water, and apples.
Ladies, want to make your man hot for Valentine’s Day? Slip him some Maca Powder! It’s a Valentine Aphrodisiac. According to ‘Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future‘ by David Wolfe, “Legend has it that during the height of the Incan empire, Incan warriors would consume maca before entering into battle to make them fiercely strong, but after conquering a city, the Incan soldiers were prohibited from using maca, to protect the women from the excessive sexual desire of the men.” … I don’t know about you, girlfriends, but I sure wouldn’t mind a big strong Incan soldier holding me captive for an hour. ;)
Four o’clock in the afternoon. Dehydrated coconut pieces from San Francisco! They tasted like bacon! (2 – 3 T worth).
And a mashed avocado.
Six thirty in the evening, one cucumber!
Ten thirty in the nighttime, preparation!
Serve. One for the housemate! One for me! Repeat once.
What surprises are you planning for Valentine’s Day?
