So I know, it's been quite a bit since I've posted anything new. Mainly because I'm just been so ashamed of my eating habits as of late. I took a break from raw for a while but stuck with the veganism and now I'm trying my hardest to jump back onto the raw food wagon but it seems to keep getting away from me. Speedy little wagon it is...or maybe I'm just sluggish from all the cooked food weighing me down. It wasn't even healthy cooked foods, it was oreos and Trader Joe's maple leaf cookies. I'm trying to put all that unhealthy stuff behind me again and lose the weight all over again. I really need to conquer these food issues I have.
What I've realized I must do during these cold northwest winter months, however, is keep some cooked food in my diet. Veggie, nut, fruit and seed laden of course, but cooked nonetheless. I simply refuse to give up my mom's (and now mine as well) authentic Russian borscht with vegan sour cream. As far as cooked foods go, I think that's as healthy as you can get! For some reason though, I have noticed that I have a hard time keeping my portions under control with cooked foods so I have to focus on this issue when I do eat them. The majority of my meals on most days are going to be raw regardless but keeping my options open will help me in the long run.
Okay, I think I'm off for today but keep your eyes peeled for my authentic Russian borscht recipe soon. Simply to DIE for...I could live off of this stuff. Hmmm...there's a contradiction.
