I toda embark on a fourty day adventure. I will try to mostly eat raw food.
How come? Why now? Why share this here when energy is your topic?
It is Ash Wednesday today, and although I consider myself agnostic, I grew up with Roman Catholic traditions. Today, I see Ssh Wednesday and the begining of lent as an opportunity to begin something new; to start a new good habit; within a defined framework, so to speak. I want to observe what testing or shaping this habit to be evokes, in myself, in my perception of food, the body and ind. And I want to know also what it does in terms of energy. Personal energy for the most part; but also how much does it affect my carbon footprint.
One effect is of course that, if you want to eat mostly raw food, it needs to be exceedingly fresh. Hence the food should be travelling the least possible distance. I am already quite a “Locavore” eating organic fresh local (regional) food, but I wish to increase that share, and also to become more creative testing new recipes.
I hope to become more mindful while preparing and eating.
I hope to get more energy which I currently drown in tea and coffee consumption.
Today’s lunch (photo) already had a first surprise at hand… it took me much longer to finish the dish than it would have, say, eating a bowl of spaghetti with some veggie sauce. Nice. I likr that. One step taken. Looking forward to the next ones.
