Moving along...

Things are a bit hectic here because we are closing up the house here in Florida and preparing to return to Connecticut. I am planning what to bring on the road with us for the 3 day drive. The last two times we have made this trip, despite bringing plenty of raw food, I have ended up eating cooked "road-trip" food and spent days regretting it. I'm kind of thinking that it might make the most sense to just bring plenty of really good fruit and make the whole ordeal into a sort of a "fruit cleanse". I have done this before, granted it wasn't in the car while driving over 1000 miles with a four year old, and felt great and had plenty of energy. I actually think that eating simple low-fat raw food is what my body likes the best. It is usually my emotions or my tongue which prompt me to eat the more gourmet raw recipes, ummmm, that and the fact that I am a chef... I also thought that, as another option, I could make up a really nice dressing and buy some nice avocados to go with the salads I could order at restaurants when we stop for food. I think I will probably end up with a combo of both. There really isn't much room in the car for us to bring a big cooler or anything. So I have a couple of challenges to overcome. I am looking forward to getting to Connecticut and getting on with all of my big plans. I am feeling very excited about being able to create a vision that I have had for a very long time. Even if it is going to be quite a bit of work. Ahhh, a labor of love. That is always the best kind of labor, in my opinion.
Have a great weekend and blessings to you all.

2-3 Avo's per day, with sea salt, should also diminish you cravings for fatty fast foods.

Love you blog and pics.
