I am not perfect. I have a very busy schedule and I make $9.70 an hour at 30 hours a week to pay all my bills. I am behind in my schoolwork, already. All that being said, I’ve been getting away from raw (again) although this time I have stayed vegan, which I commend myself on. Time to get back on track.
I downloaded Dr. Graham’s book (illegally, sorry Dr. Graham, I am but a poor student) and it was eye-opening, just like Viktoria Boutenko’s book. As soon as I get back on track with just being raw, I am going to start monitoring my daily intake of fat. I don’t aim to get it as low as 5-7%. Maybe I will in the future, who knows. But right now, after I am 95% raw again, my goal is to get my fat intake down to 20%, if it isn’t already there. I love reading all about raw, whatever legitimate info I can get my hands on. I just started reading Becoming Raw by Davis and Melina and it looks like it is going to have lots of solid information for me.
I made a raw vegan coconut curry for my boyfriend and I (after a year and a half of long distance, he moved here! yay!). It was deliciousss. Definitely not 8-1-1, haha! I did not have actual coconut meat so it took 30 minutes and some persuading of my blender to get the coconut butter (which is mostly oil) to mix with water. I roughly went by Sarma’s coconut curry recipe in her second book, but I always get a little creative with the gurus’ creations ;).
Short post after a while of not posting, but I am off to watch 3 stats lectures and study for upcoming exams.
