A few things I forgot to mention on Saturday:

1.Working really hard and having lots of late nights, etc. doesn't make me as tired as it used to! I seem to be able to just keep going and going.

2.I have realised I am so much calmer about everything generally and much less inclined to let things get to me or wind me up. I can let things go much more easily (this is especially true since I have moved house)

As I said, I have been feeling quite hungry and feeling like I'm probably not eating enough ... I bought some brown rice, some rye bread with quinoa and amaranth in (random additions I know) and some sweet potatoes for roasting yesterday. I thought if I am eating porridge I might as well have this in the evenings too/instead.

Today, the new issue of 'Get Fresh' arrived!! Do you think this is a sign..?! (Of course I have no time to read it, but may work my way through a paragraph at a time if I am lucky.)

Tonight when I came in from work I had some raw food instead of porridge, then had porridge purely out of habit, although after the raw food, it really was not what I wanted. I think I just need some raw stodge instead. Have got my raw oat groats out - why have these been sitting at the back of my cupboard for ages? Don't see why I can't make raw porridge and have it slightly warmed. And I am all set to make bread tomorrow (wheatberries already sprouting, buckwheat and flax seeds at the ready), and some lentil, mushroom and walnut burgers, (both Chris's recipes!).

I really don't want to turn back to rice and potatoes!!! I am a raw vegan!!!!

Saturday, 3 October 2009

I don't need to say it's been way too long since my last entry! I feel like I have started a completely new life which has taken up all my time, but I am still raw!! A lot has changed in my life and it is all for the better. They say that raw makes you realise your needs, what you can't tolerate, etc. and I have definitely experienced this. Whether it is entirely down to eating raw, who can say, but it has happened and I am so thankful.

Unfortunately with being so busy with uni and slowly settling into my new home I have not been feeding myself as well as I was, green juice and jogging have both gone out the window, and cooked porridge and raisins have been a daily feature of my diet, due to feeling still hungry after not having made myself a decent dinner. Looking back at photos from The Gower and Vienna, I look very skinny as well which I don't like. I can't see it in the mirror, only in photos, which is strange.

So that is an update of where I am at. Here is a photo of a decent curry dinner I made myself tonight to mark the beginning of eating more calories!

It is a red pepper, courgette, mushroom, red onion and lentil curry.

Here are a few other photos I have taken and not got round to loading on...!

I was in awe of sunflower seeds which go green and purple when sprouted - the best colours in the world. Second is the first lentil pate I made with my new hand blender ... oh yeh the hand blender - I got a bargain one and it is fantastic!
