A wonderful birthday indeed…

Back on August 2nd I received some wonderful encouragement to continue on this journey of wellness through nutrition and raw food … birthday presents!

I smile with delight after opening one of my presents...one of my requested cookbooks

Cookbooks were the theme of the morning, and I spent much of the weekend devouring them (and trying a few recipes).

In addition to presents, they made me my much requested Carrot cake. While it was gluten free (wonderful recipe from the Silly Yak email list, let me know if you want recipe via comments), it certainly wasn’t raw, and in fact it had an old fashioned cream cheese frosting. Yumm!

At that time I was eating transitionally toward going all raw. That continued most of the month. This week I’ve been as close to 100% raw as possible the entire week! It feels great. And the encouragement my family offers me by doing things such as all those wonderful cookbooks has really helped. I think it’s going to be a great year!

Stay tuned to see how this journey of food discovery brings about positive changes this year. 🙂

And, in case you’re wondering, I’m 37.
