What is it about my addictive behavior that says after 3 days and feeling better, it is ok to have something that made me sick in the first place?
Today I woke up feeling wonderful! So great in fact that I wanted to stay in bed and play with the dogs instead of getting up to make my morning juice. I lost track of time but took some items from my fridge for salad this afternoon. I nibbled on some broccoli on my way to work.
And, to my surprise, was contemplating a cup of coffee. “one won’t hurt”, “it will be alright”, “its just a little bit” – are you freakin kidding me?
I could feel the taste of hot coffee on the back of my throat. and remember, I don’t like coffee. It had a pleasant aroma, very pleasing to the palate. I would smile and release an “ahhh” sound of relief. They call this Romanticizing!
I got through it.
Salad for lunch and a juice.
I am still not feeling “cleanse” throughout my body, so I decided to stop by the Natural Food Store on my way home. I purchased some Aloe Vera Juice, which I hear is good for repairing the gut. The lady at the store has the same issues as me, allergic or intolerant to everything. She told me that I might have some issues in the one brand that I bought because it contains orange and papaya. I didn’t like the ingredients of the other brands (maltodextrin or rice or corn) and decided to go with the orange and papaya anyways.
So I really hope that orange and papaya are not the culprit to my body not cleansing. I have been eating them all week. Perhaps another food I need to stay away from? Citris? We shall see. For now, the juice is not that bad.
I wanted to find a raw food recipe for tonight’s dinner but surprisingly did not have any luck. I did find a couple that looked good but I opted out on. Perhaps tomorrow.
