I went out to eat with the raw food gurus Saturday night. It was definitely some good encouragement. I learned that while Ezekiel bread is sprouted, it is not raw. I think I'll keep it around for a while anyways until I get good at preparing raw meals. I learned that I need to read Jerry Mander. I also realized something about raw eating from my body. I always thought that I didn't get full after eating a raw meal, or if I did it didn't last long. I read that because raw food is alive, it doesn't put you to sleep like cooked food. I think over the years I have learned to associate fullness with a sense of finality and drowsiness. When I think about how I feel after a raw meal, it's not that I still feel hungry but that I don't feel tired. Yeah, I'm full, but I'm ready to go!
