Yes, I probably could have found a moment to write over these past few days, but I was enjoying time with family out of town and decided that was more important than some blog posts on raw food. Staying raw while in Texas wasn’t too difficult. There were times when I wanted to feel “normal” and blend in, but that wouldn’t accomplish my goal of being raw for 365 days. The most challenging part was all the hours I spent at the airport and eventually on a plane last night. There were issues with the first plane so it was delayed, but my flight was so late that much of the terminal I was in was closed or closing. I had taken 1 banana in my backpack and I was able to buy a bottle of water while I waited. That was it, until the plane was finally airborne and I decided to request an apple juice to sustain me until the drive home about five and a half hours later (the Husband brought me some food in the van). I thought one banana would be plenty because I didn’t eat anything on the flight to Texas. Arriving home in the wee hours of the morning wasn’t much fun.
I did have a good time while in Texas though. I figure if I can stay raw surrounded by funnel cakes, corn dogs, and other such “fair” food, then I could probably eat raw anywhere. My family was very supportive, so that was helpful. My mom and I carted fruit pretty much every where we went. While she isn’t raw, or even vegan, she did eat raw much of the time I was there.
Well, I’m back to my regularly scheduled programming, but I won’t return to normal 365 raw posts until tomorrow. I will hit 100 days this week, which is pretty exciting. In the meantime, I’m going to attempt to get some rest and prepare for another trip to the dentist to finish this root canal on Friday… eeekkk!
If you’re wondering about The Journey for April, I’ll have to post that tomorrow too.
