Learning to eat?
My cousin “B” arrived in town yesterday and has several days to spend hanging out with me. YAY! I really miss living so far away from my wonderful extended family and when they come to visit I just want to soak up as much time as I can.
“B” has had a lot going on in her body of late and has revamped her whole style of eating. She is now a primarily RAW food eater. In just the few short hours we have spent together I have already started hearing a lot of things about foods and what they do. Although through my natural parenting studies I have come across this, I feel like I am looking at a whole new world.
As you know I would really like to get things in check and have a healthier eating lifestyle. I am eager to learn from her and take in all I can. I look forward to sharing with you the things that hit me and am interested to know what you think about it.
Here is the one thing that we were talking about yesterday that really stuck with me (probably because I have been already been reading about it myself and it’s one of my biggest downfall areas). SUGAR “B” was saying that she is a lot happier and nicer person since she has gone off of the stuff. She had some again after being off of it for a while and when she had some she noticed that she felt different on the inside and acted different on the outside. Wow…that was something interesting for me to think about. I started to wonder if sugar affects my parenting style. Something to think about and look into more. Perhaps I will be up for a test soon…we’ll see.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on RAW eating as well as eliminating refined sugars from your diet. Are you doing any “radical” eating? Have you found changes in yourself besides weight?
