today i started a 3 day raw food extravaganza. i was calling it a ‘diet’, but it’s not a diet in the traditional lose-5-pounds-sense. it’s a LIFESTYLE. did you roll your eyes at me just a bit? :)
i find it funny that i’ve gotten so many questions about whether certain foods are ok on the raw food extravaganza – i mean, it’s not a very complex concept. ask yourself is it RAW? if so, then it’s ok. if it’s been cooked, roasted, boiled, grilled, fried in batter it’s NOT raw anymore.
i guess it gets tricky when you get to dairy products because most of them are pasteurized and then there are tricky foods like honey which you assume are raw, but most store bought honey is in fact pasteurized also. i did buy some raw honey and it tastes like rainbows. yep, like actual fragmented light particles dancing in raindrops. that’s how good it is. considering the price i paid, it better taste like rainbows. yep…i’ve found out that eating a diet of raw organic foods is not cheap – unless you have your own vegetable garden, bee hives, milking cow etc. my landlord won’t even let us have a plant indoors, let alone a milking cow. so inconsiderate.
