Oh the holidays…
I had planned to take off from my 80/10/10 raw/vegan diet for a couple days this week, but alas, it is turning into the whole week off. Oh well. I’m ok with this mainly. I did 3 and a half weeks straight on 80/10/10 this last round and am very happy with the healthy results. I kept hearing from family and friends how young I looked. This surprised me, since I’m not even dying my hair right now… at all!
I like seeing what choices I actually make when not on the diet, and what no longer looks good to me. I’m seeing that meat is generally not appealing now, unless it is mixed into a casserole. I went out for breakfast with a friend today, and normally I would order bacon or turkey sausage with a cooked breakfast, but today… nope. I ordered vegetarian, and that’s all I’m going to say about that 🙂
I did try to bring veggies and fruit to all the parties I’ve gone to. In fact, these are samples of what I brought…
The veggies and hummus were eaten up, but the fruit trees were only half eaten. So for the next party, I would do a much smaller fruit tree, if at all. I also found that the base of the fruit tree works better if it’s a cantaloupe with a flat bottom cut out. The first tree was made of an apple (base) and carrot, and it kept toppling over. We propped it up with a clear fork 🙂 However, the cantaloupe based tree never toppled.
I imagine this would be a very fun project to do at home with kids. It took me a lot longer to create though than I expected. Thankfully, the second time I had help 🙂
I’ve seen some ladies in the Banana Girl Diet Challenge staying on fruit and greens through the whole holiday, and I’m very impressed! Maybe next year I can give that a go. Even their families are becoming vegan or raw/vegan. It’s contagious!
Health is more contagious than disease,
The Light more than darkness, and
Truth more powerful than any lie.
