It’s very easy to fall out of this raw/vegan routine, you don’t even notice it sometime. Then suddenly you have either bloated belly or just feeling full and heavy and the # on the scale starts growing.
So what went wrong? I went through my pantry and all the shelves and looked for items I was munching on in the last few days. First of all, I forgot that 70% of my diet should be liquidy as we humans consist of 70% of liquids. It’s nice to have a veggie juice every morning, but there should be at least a salad every day and every night and more water to drink or better fruits or some nutritional drinks/juices (of course they may only contain natural sugar!). So I haven’t done enough of all of the above. In addition I noticed a pack of sugarless almond cookies that I got in the Whole Foods. That was the real reason that blocked my renewed food processing inside my body. I was eating one cookie a day lying to myself that it’s OK to eat one a day. Result was constipation and heaviness. So, please don’t be blind by the sugarless cookies. They are processed, nutrition-free, and high in calories and do no good to you! Now, someone please come over to my house and eat the rest of them so I don’t have to look at them anymore. Additionally, several drinks over the weekend didn’t help. Now raw or vegan person would respect me for having a drink here and there, but trust me, I am having much less of what I am used to. So it’s already a big improvement on my part.
