High Raw Food Diet Challenge - Day 10

by Trina
(Growing Raw Health)

I have something positive to learn from every experience.

Further to my comments on day 6 regarding my crude estimate of calorie totals, I should also mention that a portion of my food is snaffled by my kids. I’m not complaining, I think this has been one of the most welcome side-effects of eating a high raw food diet. Whenever I have a plate of fruit, a bowl of salad or a glass of green smoothie there is always a little person hanging around for a share.

For many parents getting their kids to eat healthy food is a challenge. One of the best things you can do is let them see you eating healthy food. Then they want to taste and share.

My kids have been known to clear my plate of foods that they refuse to eat from their own. Little darlings.

I feel like I’m keeping up with the pace of my life a little better. There’s always more jobs to do but I feel like I’m achieving more. I attribute this to my gradually increasing energy levels. I’m also feeling brighter, which enables me to organise my time more effectively.

Tomorrow I’m taking the kids to visit my parents in Melbourne for a week. The major advantage of this is that they love being in charge of the kids so I have time off! However, maintaining a high raw diet while I’m away from home is tricky. I’m away from my garden and my blender, and tempted by other people’s boozin’, carnivorous ways. Not mentioning any names - DAD!

I will have to draw on the positives of the situation, which are:

1. Mum is into it, especially salads and smoothies, and enjoys eating fresh raw food with me.

2. There is an organic fruit and veg shop 5 minutes walk around the corner. Imagine that! Living on a bush block out of town makes this kind of convenience and absolute luxury.

3. Writing this ‘blog’ will help keep me honest! Plus my whole extended family knows what I’m doing and they’re very supportive of my weird ideas....
