Re: [Raw Food] Re: fell off the raw wagon...
- Did you know Donald Trump does not drink alcohol at all? Ever? If
anyone had an excuse of social situations insisting on alcohol
consumption it would be him. I think if you really did not want to
drink you wouldn't, it is just as easy to order a mineral water with a
lime as a gin and tonic. You will stay clear headed and take steps to
free yourself from using a substance that does nothing to improve your
health, happiness and general well being. I really can't imagine
anyone would be truly offended by your decision to abstain. To me it
is the same as being a vegetarian, if I am offered a food having meat,
fish or eggs I simply say "No thank you". It works just as well for
alcohol. To me the heart of the matter is the decision one makes -
"what is for my highest good?", then all other decisions fall into
place more easily.
Good luck Nikki, I know this is not easy. As for going 100% raw, why
bother until you ready to make a more concerted effort to a healthy
lifestyle? Or maybe they go together, do one and the next will follow.
I took a series of classes on raw food prep that really got me started
into it, then I bought a few cookbooks and have friends who practice
it. They taught me more and also ways to make it practical.

- Thank you John, I was just extrapolating logically from identical
accusations I'd seen many times , over a period of time, from various
sources. And adding a little of my own feelings on 'gurus' and what
they charge etc.
Since when do we need anyone to teach us how to eat salads?
Love and Light,
