Imperfectly Raw Day 31, Saturday, September 18, 2021
Breakfast: Coffee and a green juice using what I had on hand - 1 bunch parsley, 1 bunch cilantro, collard leaves, 3 Napa Cabbage leaves, 2" ginger, 1/2 jalapeno, 1 lemon, 3 apples, 1 cucumber, 2 little packs of snack celery, liquid turmeric.
Sleep was good - 7 hr 12 min. I'm not sure what is helping me sleep better, but I hope it continues.
I am starting another Raw Reset with Tannyraw on September 27. I have done several resets with her and perhaps this will be my last one. I like them because Tanny is good at teaching self control and following the plan you set up for yourself. When you are shaky, the plan is steady. You just have to work the plan.
The last two or three years have been a time of deconstruction for me. Seeing the prevalence of conspiracy theories all around me made me want to disentangle myself from any such theories driving my own behavior. This has changed the way I address my health care, my diet, my politics, and beliefs that circle back on themselves in a cultish way. That being said, I want to eat raw foods sometimes, and health is my hobby, but it needs to be in a science based way based on rational thinking and personal experience. Any decisions about food need to be founded on health principles, and that is the challenge.
Smoothies for 2: 2 bananas, 2 kiwi, 2 dates, pea microgreens, spinach, yogurt, frozen mixed fruit, coconut water, and water.
I made salmon and oven roasted broccoli for Travis' dinner.
Salmon Recipe: Thaw out 1-1/2 lbs of salmon fillets. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix 1-1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Rube the mixture into the salmon. Place salmon on a foil covered baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake for about 14 minutes.
My dinner was a chopped salad and leftover cauliflower and black bean dish with whole grain chips and a Kevita Pineapple Peach Kombucha.
Chopped Salad Recipe: Pulse in a food processor: about 1/3 of a bag of romaine salad, about 1/4 of a bag of coleslaw, 1/2 red bell pepper, 1/4 onion, a couple of artichoke hearts from a jar, pine nuts, golden raisins, Braggs vinaigrette dressing, and Herbes de Provence.
Snack today: 1/2 avocado with grated coconut and a nectarine. I only ate part of the nectarine because I was too busy to eat.
Evening tea: Yogi Chamomile and Lavender
