If you haven't already discovered the Daily Raw Inspiration emails sent out by Jinjee of The Garden Diet, then I highly recommend them. Every day Jinjee sends out a short email discussing an aspect of eating raw. They vary from recipes to insights to raw-related subjects such as emotional and spiritual development, and I for one am a big fan.
Very often when I receive one of Jinjee's daily mailings I want to share it with you here, but today one came through that was especially endearing and useful about how to find comfort from eating raw...
"It can take time to be able to get your emotional satisfaction from living food. To some degree we all get a healthy dose of emotional comfort from eating. Even if we are in the habit of eating cooked comfort foods, over time we can change the foods that give us these good feelings. Establishing little rituals of place and time for the foods that you eat can help. For instance sipping a smoothie while sitting in the sun, eating a salad in a beautiful bowl, chopping veggies with your children, preparing an elaborate raw taco or raw vegan sushi recipe and sitting down as a family, or drinking an after-work nut-milk-shake can all become soul-satisfying habits!"
Wishing you happiness,
