February 8th- I've Come a Long Way!


Today I was pressed for time, so I had the dreaded hummus sandwich- twice! It's so easy to make hummus sandwiches. If I could just come up with a replacement for the hummus- something that would fill me the way hummus does- I would make that instead when I'm in a hurry or need something quick and easy for the university. Of course I'm now suffering from gastric distress from the double dose of hummus.

Tomorrow some people are bringing party food to one of our classes. This is a first for me- so far in class I've passed up candy dishes and offers of gum. I've not allowed myself to be tempted by the Pepsi EVERYONE seems to be drinking around me these days. But this will be the first party. Luckily, just a couple of days ago I revealed my raw food "diet" to my classmates because I am using it as the topic for a paper I'll be writing. Would you believe the person bringing the junk food actually asked me what she could bring for me? I thought that was so nice! I told her she could bring me a big, juicy peach!! Who'd a thunk I'd be looking forward to eating a peach at a party where everyone else will be eating chocolate rice krispy treats and other dishes of decadence? I've come a looooooong way!

Throw 3 zucchinis, 3 cloves garlic, 2 TB raw tahini, salt, 2 shallots, juice of 1 lemon and 1 date in the blender and voila! You have a raw no bean hummus.

Congrats on your successes so far. Your journal has been inspiring to read!
