checking in

just checking in today. not much going on. i am having alot of energy lately. still doing pretty good on the raw foods. it gets pretty routine after you've done it a while. like i said before, i started dabbling in raw food in 1999 while i was living in tucson az.(best place ever) my daughter and i went to a raw food demo. we split a family sized hershey chocolate bar in the car. the lady giving the demo was very buff and nice looking, but unfortunatly she cut her finger right at the start of the thing and was kind of bleeding as she went. think julia child and saturday night live, if you saw that episode. anyway she made a date nut cake, some spagetti with a maranara sauce, and a couple of other things i don't remember. it was all good. what i do remember is the ginormous stomachache i had after that. probably the worst one i ever had. around the same time i found shazzie's blog and david wolf's site. there wasn't a lot on the web at the time, so the first thing i started doing was a fruit smoothie everyday. i would do that a while and forget about it awhile then go back to it. but what i did do was continue to read about it and surround myself with as much information as i could. and i still do that everyday. i listen to cd's i've downloaded when i'm in the car and when i'm walking. i continue to buy and read books and reread them, because alot of times i will pick up something i didn't get the first time i read it. i was always reading diet and health books over the years but when i finally read fit for life(this was way before raw food came up)it made so much sense. i tried that for awhile but would slip back into the s.a.d. diet.(i was mostly vegetarian then anyway) but a very junky vegetarian. anyway i have evolved over a long period of time to where i am now, able to eat and enjoy raw food most of the time. if i do eat something cooked i enjoy it and i don't worry about it.(but i always pay for it later in how i feel). anyway, that's a little bit about how i came to be a raw food eater. see ya later...... the rare raw southern bird
