Back On the Wagon

Our trip to Barcelona was a wonderful break. And not just a break from work, the kids, and our regular routine. It was a break from the squeaky-clean eating habits that I observe in my day-to-day life. Not only did I have red wine with every dinner, but also croissants, chocolate croissants, French fries, cookies, potato chips, sugar, dessert and caffeinated tea.

It felt terrific to eat anything I wanted. I felt kind of rebellious and I felt a freedom that I have not experienced for a long time. I didn’t worry about glycemic index, refined sugar, enzymes, fat, and caloric intake. I didn’t worry about anything. I stepped completely out of my regular routine and my holiday was fabulous!

So, after dropping the kids at school I stocked up on organic produce, a big try of wheatgrass, and a beautifully green tray of pea sprouts.

I had a 4-ounce wheatgrass shot for breakfast followed by my raw plant-based smoothie. And, as I write, I am indulging in a bowl full of organic red pepper, avocado, and pea sprouts with cold-pressed olive oil, the juice of an organic lemon and Celtic sea salt sprinkled over the top…absolutely delicious!

And, truly, I think that today’s raw food tastes that much better because I allowed myself to visit the ‘other side’ of eating and then to return home again.

Next stop…a raw lemon cheesecake!download (31)
