So, I decided to do the raw food detox. My goal is to eat raw (my version of raw) every day for a week. Let me define: I eat raw fruits and vegetables, raw/unpasteurized cheese, raw nuts, and Ezekiel bread. I know that Ezekiel bread is not technically raw; however, it is as whole and healthy as bread can be and it adds significantly to this diet so that it is more sustainable. Therefore, I eat Ezekiel bread during this detox. Also, I have heard that some nuts that are supposedly raw are not actually raw (especially my favorite - cashews). I've decided, though, that if I make this a concern, it makes the detox to complicated. So, I've decided to take the grocers at their word and if they say that a nut is raw, I believe it.
Here I am on day one. I ate perfectly today, though I have tons of cravings and wish I could go crazy at a Chinese buffet. However, on to day 2. Hopefully the cravings will eventually subside.
