First off, thanks everyone for your advice a few days ago when I had my raw food disaster. I decided to return to about 60% raw and have been feeling just fine.
I also talked with Merilynn, Ben’s mom who is a raw foodie, and had her analyze my diet. I told her what I had been eating, read her the ingredients to the recipes I had been making, etc. She was shocked by the large amounts of olive oil in Ani Phyo’s recipes that I had been making, and determined that the culprit was a combination of way too much oil, too much raw garlic (just because it’s hard to digest, especially with that much oil), and too many nuts.
So, I am 60% raw again but plan to go 100% tomorrow after I go food shopping today. I am going to take my focus off of nuts and oily raw recipes and eat mostly raw vegetables and fruits, which I should have been doing in the first place! Merilynn even sent me some of her own recipes so I can use those, and I am going to look through my other raw books to find recipes that I think will keep me feeling good 🙂
