Only 4 days left & Praising God!

Four days left with our raw food adventure. It has been so easy. The food has been so good. I think our next step from here is going to be 80-85% raw food and we're going to be changing some other things too. I have a cookbook called Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and we are going to be implementing some of her ideas. She recommends soaking or sprouting all of your grains or flour before using them. Basically if you soak your flour in kefir or another cultured milk product it activates the enzyme phytase, which works to break down the phytic acid in the bran of grains. We are also going to be making whole grain sourdough! I'm very excited about that. I think I will love the taste. In any case we are going to be much more careful with our health. It is so true that you pay for it one way or another, either at the grocery store or at the doctors office. All I know is that I feel great. I have a 6 week old baby and I do not need a nap. I've been taking naps for the last 5 years. Not just 30 minute naps either. I get so much more done now! I feel like a better mom.

Anyway, I left out praise where praise belongs and that is to the Lord. My prayer has been to be healthy to serve the Lord. He has given me wisdom and I am so thankful for that. There are many things that go along with diet. A good conscience toward God & others, a grateful attitude, & even physical exercise. The Bible says that "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." Just having a merry heart does our bodies good. So I praise and thank the Lord for what he is doing for our family! To God Be the Glory!

Hi! I am inspired too - I love hearing success stories like yours when you tried 30 days all raw! I plan on starting this myself tomorrow...I'd also love to see how it affects my pregnancy & delivery to be 100% raw for 30 days or more! Right now I am 32 weeks pregnant with baby #7. So I can relate alot to your blog - and also the van! That was really encouraging to read because right now we have an 8-seater car and have no idea how we're going to get a van. We don't believe in debt either - but have no money saved for a van due to circumstances out of our control.

Anyway, congrats on your success AND being raw right after the baby, wow! That is always one of my biggest struggles, is being 100% raw postpartum because I just want to emotionally eat SO much. I'd love to see how eating raw and exercise change things for me.
