Jan. 10, day 10 of raw foods

I ate a lot more calories today. I guess I had the munchies! The fact that I ate my first meal before 10 means I had more hours to eat, though. It’ll be interesting to see how my week turns out weight-wise this week. I’m happy that I am bringing my protein up; I noticed that goji berries have a lot of protein, and I had nuts today, which also helped. I just need to start drinking more water. I find that it takes me hours to drink 16 oz sometimes. Maybe I’ll add lime wedges or something to make it more inviting. Other than the higher calories, today was an uneventful, decent day.

I got a tip from Ren that the light patches on either side of my mouth might have been related to the citrus I was drinking, as citrus can have a bleaching effect. That sounds like very sensible reasoning. I let up on the citrus this week and the patches seem a bit darker and smaller today. I hope I don’t forget to buy straws, as I really enjoy my orange and pomegranate juice mix.

I’m exited to start classes next week. I think eating raw will make life easier. Salads travel well, as do fresh fruits, veggies and nuts. I’m so happy to not have to worry about what to eat while I’m out. I’m sure I’ll have some things to get used to - like how much food to take with me- but at the moment things look very doable.
