At the beginning of this challenge it was my intention to go fully raw for the whole duration of the month. Unfortunately I cannot attest to completing this challenge. I broke it - countless times.
Because, for me at least, food is a very social and enjoyable element of my life.
This might sound silly but not partaking in eating cake on my mum and sisters birthday (which both took place this month) would have felt like I wasn't helping them celebrate.
I've challenged myself with this because I can decline alcohol, I can stay vegan no matter what the circumstances. So really, come on Fab be honest...
Why couldn't you do it?
I couldn't do it because I didn't really want to do it.
I wanted to eat the birthday cake.
Its as simple as that!
Let's get to the good stuff. What did I learn?
All in all it was an interesting challenge. I think at the moment I am still enjoying the birthday cake and hearty cooked meals made by my mum to transition to a fully raw state. However, I plan to keep my raw intake as high as I can. Hopefully around 75% per day. I always ate plenty of raw foods before but I do see the health benefit in consuming the majority of our food as raw.
Thank you for reading and supporting my journey of inner growth!
With love & gratitude.
