well i did , after three days, land in alabama. the drive back went fairly well, no bad traffic, bad weather or near misses. what about my eating plan and staying in touch with my teeny weeny lap top? well no wifi, that's what. my eating plan gradually fell apart, but not too badly. but make no mistake about it, trying to find some place healthy to eat is like trying to hunt down bigfoot with a blindfold on. there is nothing on any interstate off-ramp that could, even in your wildest dreams be mistaken for food that is good for you. subway used to be my go to food in a pinch, so second day out and hungry, i thought i would get one. bad mistake. tasted very chemically (is that a word, and if it is, is it spelled right, or does anybody care). so, to make a long story short, i landed. landed, in what can only be dscribed as humidity hell. my, goddess, i feel like i am in the freaking amazon. when i was in arizona, it was like being in a big giant dehydrator, wind and super dry heat. it's taken me awhile to adjust to the change in my routine and time zone. there is a three hour time difference. i know, there's only supposed to be a two hour difference but that's another wierd little story. not interesting enough to tell here. anyway back to my trials and tribulations. grew my first tray of wheatgrass. that's the good news. the bad news is that wheatgrass tastes like green crap. i know it's hard to believe but, really, it taste crappy. but i intend to persevere and develope a taste for it. i developed a taste for diet coke and if you can develope a taste for that, you can do it for just about anything. and i did love my diet coke. so i'm looking forward to loving my wheatgrass. i want to give it a really good try. i also ordered my own colonic kit. i know people have varying opinions on colonics and some people will say you need to have a professional do it ,(and i would agree) but i live in the back of beyond with limited funds and i'm a do it yourself kind of girl. so, i do it or it doesn't get done. the reason i'm doing wheatgrass and colonics is that other people have done them with good results and i want to see what will happen. i haven't done them before because i'm of the mind that they don't sound too natural, but nothing we do now is too natural so i decided to give it a shot and see what happens. i'm hoping for good things. all for now raw foodies .......catch you later.
