Raw vegan chili
Today was my day off from yoga. This was my fourth day in the raw vegan diet. I had a potluck tonight with about 12 people. Everyone made a raw recipe, and it was surprisingly awesome. I made the chili shown above. Before starting the raw diet I thought that it would be a lot of carrots and nuts. It sounded like it would be 7 days of hell. The chili I made really tasted like chili. Other friends made things like sushi, lasagne, a tuna like salad, and some great desert. This is the second day that I am really excited on what I ate for dinner.
Marianne mentioned to me on how much our lives have changed. 15 years ago I would have had a keg and a bag of pretzels, now I have people who are trying to be healthy. We all have different thoughts and ideas about it, but we all have a strive to become healthy. I like the group of people that I am around.
I did feel a little weak this afternoon. I had not eaten a lot in the morning, and I was doing a lot of yard work outside. I felt a little dizzy, but stopped and went in to eat something. It is really important to continue to eat throughout this whole week. When I do yoga I need to keep in mind that I am doing a detox, and I will probably not be able to be at my full potential.
