Someone recognized me at Whole Foods the other day. Not someone I know. A stranger.
"Aren't you one of those raw food people?"
I don't know, am I?
For now, of course, the answer is yes. But what about on April 30, when we are technically finished with our experiment? How much raw will I have to eat to be considered "one of those raw food people?"
I get the feeling that it has to be a lot. Most of my diet, in fact. What I plan to do is to eat enough raw food to maintain the health and energy benefits I have received this month. Only I will be able to determine that level as I go along.
But a heavy sense of disapproval of cooked foods, dairy, meat, caffeine, etc., from the people we have encountered has made me feel guilty about certain foods I want back in my diet.
Like bread. Eggs. Cheese. And maybe coffee. These are all foods I love. I have no intention of giving them up forever, but I'm wondering if they have been a bit spoiled for me.
