For the second time this year we are having cold and snowy weather and it seems especially tough to be eating a raw food diet when it is so cold outside. I have no doubt that this sort of diet is much easier to achieve in warmer climates and so I have stopped beating myself up for wanting a hot meal of some kind when the mercury on the thermometer dips. That said, today hasn’t been one of those days. I was really feeling the cold at lunch time and was even shivering in the kitchen when I went to prepare our food (we do have heating!) So I put a hat on and within a few minutes was feeling warmer again. Hmmm….so maybe I don’t need hot food in cold weather – just lots of hats!!
Food today has been:-
Green smoothie – oranges, grapefruit, celery, spinach and banana.
Large salad with lettuce, red onion, tomato, cucumber, olives, avocado, olive oil and sea salt.
Orange, grapefruit and banana smoothie.
1/2 pineapple with choccy sauce (coconut butter, cacao powder and agave)
Lots warm water, blackcurrant tea, detox tea and hot lemon (first thing)
Exercise today has been:-
Have had to take a break from yoga this week as I pulled a hamstring muscle on monday. It feels a lot better today though so plan is to have a gentle practice tomorrow……
Thanks for reading.
