What a difference a day makes...

I just re-read my entry from yesterday and I can honestly say that I am feeling so much better today. When I went to bed last night, I gave myself a good talking to and reiterated that I am the only one responsible for my life and what I make of it. I was honest with myself and decided that I needed some sort of a plan to proceed with this fantastic raw lifestyle. I know that I am a powerful woman who can accomplish much if I put my mind to it. I also realize that I need to invest some faith in this process of healing myself and my life. So that led me to begin thinking about how much I underestimate myself and also how much of a perfectionist I am. I have realized that the reason that I like to cook is because it is second nature to me and I am always guaranteed a good result and at least a few compliments from whomever the lucky diners happen to be. I now realize that I could achieve the same thing with raw food prep if I just put a little more practice into it. I mean I am already quite good at it... It took me quite a while to get to be an excellent cook and I already know that it won't take as long to master raw food as most of the principles are similar. It all boils down to the fact that I need to be a little more patient with myself and allow my passion for creating gorgeous raw food to simmer a little longer.

So now I have a declaration to make. I am a raw foodist. I have decided this and now it is so. I am committed to and believe in a raw vegan lifestyle for health and ethical reasons. I love living food and what it does for me as a whole person. In this spirit I move forward on my journey.

So there...

So glad to see you perked up. :-) With just a little practice you will be an accomplished raw chef. Raw cuisne, properly presented is extremely impressive. You will win back your foodie fans, but this time you will also be offering them the gift of health!

if you're good at cooking....then I bet you're pretty good at uncooking....same principles really! I agree with Connie, peeps eat with their eyes....and raw food can look so amazingly beautiful (and taste great too of course)
