Going Raw – Day 20

Today my energy was a little less, and I needed a nap. I thought about what I had to eat yesterday and today that was different, and realized it was the corn chips. I had another time with corn flakes that I noticed a problem as well, but I seemed OK with raw corn niblets. So, was it the cooking process with the corn, or am I sensitive to all corn? Anyway, I will add it to my list of problem foods which now includes: all nuts, lemons, bananas, gluten, dairy and now corn. The good news is that my digestion is entirely normal again. I also ate one non-vegan thing today, some organic chicken broth. My daughter was craving some after her bouts of repeated vomiting yesterday, and since chicken broth is high in the amino acid l-glutamine which is used in repairing the lining of the gut, I thought it sounded like a good idea. I also just felt like preparing one meal, not two. Anyway, here is what I ate today:

Breakfast:

Millet porridge with chopped raw apple

Lunch:

Large salad of lettuce, cucumber, avocado, chives, parsley, coconut amino pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, organic corn chips, Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, olives

Supper:

Organic chicken broth with rice noodles, chickpeas and spinach
Slice of Silver Hills GF bread with coconut butter

Snack:

Lime date chia seed pudding
