Food Journal

by Kristen Suzanne in food journal

Before I begin this food journal that I tracked for the past several days, I wanted to take a moment and let you know that it’s not just me who eats this way in my family. When I started the raw journey I was a sassy single gal, but it wasn’t long before I met my boyfriend (via eHarmony – deets here on how he was an omnivore when we met but converted to an herbivore after 8 months) who later became my husband. So, for the most part, when I post these food journals, my husband is eating along with me. He doesn’t usually eat the single pieces of fruit as much or the granola for example (although he does take bites of mine – lol); rather he gets his “snacks” in the form of protein grenades.

Part of a small decaf soy latte (we met up at Starbucks with my former doula and had a blast!) It’s NOT my habit to get a drink at Starbucks when we go there, not so much because it’s “cooked” but because it’s not organic coffee. I rarely drink coffee these days, but on occasion when I brew it at home, I use organic and fair trade coffee. Read how to kick the caffeine addiction here.
