Rule: 3 meals a day before dark (or 6pm in summer)
Permissable snacks: herb tea, kombucha, coconut kefir, bee pollen, chlorella tabs, and of course, fresh green juice.
I've been reading Angela Stoke's "Raw Emotions" and devising more structure for myself around food plan. I've noticed that for me, moving my body is actually more important than trying to find the exact right menu. This is because I'm in need of the endorphins and pro-active sensations I receive from moving it around.
I've been able to stop coffee and cacao now and don't feel as sluggish as I did the first few weeks.
I don't actually think I will need the Meltzer dinner plan of baked potato and steamed veggies or corn on cob but I have included it as occasionally allowable if I want to. I saw Dr Meltzer with Wulf and Arol Zendik back in the late 70s and he made a big impression on me. He's basically of the Paavo Airola lineage and promotes raw foods but also a wonderful awareness of calories, fats, body movement, spiritual growth and transitioning with some acid foods.
I'm struggling for a daily reprieve from emotional pulls to use food as comfort. Otherwise, I'm basically ready to be 100% raw as far as I can tell. (As Angela says you can have anything you want at all times it's a matter of "What Would Love Do" and what makes you feel best?)
Tonight I went for a long walk at dusk, the magic hour they call it in Hollywood. Walking I realized I had a pain in my heart chakra and that I could release it now. I realized it could have been hurt from an early misunderstanding or it could have really happened in my youngster years that I felt alone. Nevertheless, I've sensed this as a palpable sensation like a dagger in my heart for several years going high raw now as I keep peeling back the onion layers of self-awareness and healing. Tonight I actually felt the earth Mother holding me as I was ready to let it be expelled. I could feel the sensation of expelling something out my heart chakra and the relief of the pain leaving me.
