Christmas... sigh

I don't even feel like telling a sad story. So I won't tell you one.

Today, my girls enjoyed painting with their watercolors. In fact, the dining room is covered with lovely abstract paintings and pictures of rainbows.

We walked downtown to the movie theater late in the afternoon and saw Alvin and the Chipmunks, which was tolerable for the adults and enjoyable for the kids.

I finished the evening by fighting with, and then making up with, my husband, and then eating half a cheese pizza, a whole bunch of corn chips, and some chocolate truffles. I then read Sarah's blog about feeling the lovely tingly feeling of well-being when she eats her fruit. Imagine the antithesis of that. That's what I feel...

Well, tomorrow is another day. I choose what to make of it.

Hi, Marjorie. . .

Oh, bless your heart. It's OK.

I am thinking how you have a knowledge and understanding about fruit that less than 99.9% of all people have.

You have the knowledge and the Power and the desire to do this.

An awareness that is in my mind all the time is the way that we are always harmonizing with our environments.

Do you know what I mean?

If I had a place in a tropical paradise and I invited you to come visit for a month, it would be so easy for you to eat fruit with me. Sunshine, fresh air, tropical breezes, the ocean, fruit trees all around, and a friend who eats nothing but fruit. It would be fun and easy to live on fruit in this healthy environment. Lots of fun and happiness!

Every time I watch TV or am in poisonous environments or situations, I have thoughts of eating junk. I can feel how my body/mind/spirit are just trying to harmonize with the environment.

It is something to ponder for all of us.

Hey, on the bright side, it is almost prime citrus season. Soon the oranges will be cheap and super sweet. Liquid sunshine!

Thinking of you today. . .

:)

Love,
Julie

We're enjoying quite a bit of citrus here, too.

All that you are experiencing is part of the process dear. I know it's difficult, but now that you KNOW the truth about the joy and freedom a life of raw foods can bring you, you will always always always go back. There is a balance to be found. Take your time in the process... I read Sarah's post too. It made me want orange juice!

Hi Majorie...

Just wondering, what exactly are you allowed to eat on the 80/10/10 diet...

I don't have the $$$ for the book right now and don't have much $$$ for the "special foods" right now either...

However, I DO have frozen raw blueberries, strawberries & bananas, broccoli, fresh oranges & cranberries, raw sunflower seeds, raw sesame seeds, raw flax seeds (about 15 or more pounds), raw wheat kernels & oats & spelt & barley, raw pecans...

Does this diet exclude milk? I also have raw milk.

Though Spark People I am losing weight & feeling better by eating more raw things, but not sure if I can go 100% raw.

Also, how does it affect nursing? I am constantly battling low milk supply so I am always taking supplements like alfalfa, blessed thistle, flax oil, evening primrose oil, fenu-greek/thyme...

BTW, I am KICKBOXINGMOM at SP & I also have a blogger account...

Anything you can tell me would be helpful!

Thanks,
Heather

It is always so nice to hear from everyone. I am feeling better today and enjoying a feeling of sisterhood with all of you wonderful friends. Julie, today is a day of ORANGES!

Heather, welcome. Thanks for stopping in! I sent you personal e-mails about your questions.

Thanks,

Marjorie
