Going Raw – Day 17

Another good day – that’s two in a row! I asked my daughter today if she thinks I have more energy now than I used to and she remarked that I am taking fewer naps, so it isn’t just me thinking that. I like having enough energy to see patients during the day and then still feel active in the evening. I am sleeping really well too, and waking up feeling more restled. Digestion is much improved, but it is still not what it was before May. Again today, I warmed most of the raw food up to room temperature before eating, and I was careful to take moderate portions of everything. If I eat too much at one time, then I risk overloading my digestive enzymes. Here’s what I ate today:

Breakfast:

Smoothie – lettuce, apple, strawberries
slice of gluten-free toast (Silver hills chia, chia) with coconut oil

Lunch:

lentil vegetable soup
large salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red pepper, dressing – olive oil, agave, coconut aminos
chia cherry pudding

Snack:

orange
gluten-free bread with coconut oil

Supper:

brown rice with tomato sauce
collard greens stir-fried with garlic and olive oil
sweet potatoes with coconut oil
dates
