Fruits and vegetables are superior to animal foods. Developing better agriculture methods and building up the soil are noble vocations. Raw foods are superior to cooked foods. We will be better off if we only eat uncooked foods. It's important to thoroughly chew the food, too.
We don't have to be concerned about counting vitamins and minerals and calories. If we eat a diet of fresh, organic, if possible, fruits, salads, nuts and seeds along with a little olive oil, raw milk cheese, honey, etc., we should be fine. This is the diet that conforms to the laws of life. It will assure us of better health.
Condiments and seasonings paralyze the sense of taste so that we can't enjoy the flavors of the natural foods. We get to the point where we complain about foods being bland if they are not spiced up with hot sauce, salt, pepper, alcohol, or other condiments. Our tongues become so irritated with the stimulation of these spices that we miss the real pleasure of eating.
|Here we are at the Florida Welcome Center where they served us fresh grapefruit or orange juice.|
My dinner was salad (lettuce, tomatoes, asparagus) with salad dressing (olive oil, lemon juice, honey), avocado, sauerkraut, pecans, and dates.
I had a cup of lemongrass tea this morning and after dinner.
For exercise today I trained for a 5k, walked the dog, and did house work.
We are headed to California to visit our family there. My DIL is shopping for my food today at Trader Joe's so there should be no problem in staying raw while we are out there. My grandson, Caleb, will be participating in a competition with his robotics team. We look forward to seeing some of that.
To health and happiness.
