Ahh,, theres nothing like a fresh fruit day. ...unless its a fresh juice day.. both good..but today, Fruit!! Theres something so enlivening about both of these.. juice, fresh fruit, juicy.. hmm.. and speaking of juicy, I wanted to mention something.
I ate some cooked food awhile ago, it doesn't happen often, .. Well, just so you know my history - for 3-4 years I ate 100% raw, vegan. Then in the last year, or so.. I started eating a bit of cooked food here & there, often with others..actually always with others.. still always staying about 90% raw at least.. and consciously choosing the foods I ate.. but it was for 2 reasons I chose to do so - 1 was grounding when I was going through emotionally turbulent times (so nice to be returned to peace & harmony!) and 2 was to share food with others, it was a communal thing, which I have discovered is very, very important.. there is a bond we form between us when we eat the same food together.
But one thing I noticed when I ate cooked food is that the next morning I would have a stiffness in my joints, it was slight but it was there.. and I would eat all raw, and it is gone. Interesting. I have a friend who went all raw a couple summers ago and that was the 1st thing she noticed.. her joints, which were tight and sore, became loose and she was flexible again.. and without pain.
I've noticed its a lot of work to eat cooked food, and hard on the body! Hmm!??
