100% Raw – Day 11

So… today is the real 11th day going 100% raw. At this point I’m wondering if I should just do a weekly update on my “rawness”.

Yesterday I ordered a Spirooli Slicer from RawGuru.com. Raw chef Matt Amsden uses this when making zuchinni pasta, and in his book Rawvolution, I was very impressed with the way his zuchinni noodles turned out in his spaghetti recipe. When I was a non-raw vegan I loved spaghetti back when I was eating the real pasta. Now, I am certain that my body can not tolerate pasta or breads. So, I just had to invest in a Spirooli Slicer so I can make my own raw pasta dishes. I’m pretty excited about this. Any way to expand on the number of raw dishes I can make at home is always going to help in my raw vegan quest.

Anyway, I’m feeling great still. Lots of energy. I had a gig tonight but couldn’t do it because I simply don’t have a keyboard yet, but I will soon. I’ll find a way to afford it. I need the additional work as a pianist. But, I was able to do a lot of errands today and work in the yard trimming the hedges. Vacuuming, working in the kitchen. Preparing all my raw foods.

I still have slight back aches but I think it’s because I’m working pretty hard now that I have all this energy. And I’ve been playing the piano for at least 2-3 hours each day, in intervals. More later… but so far the raw journey is feeling good!

    keep it up , you are doing great! if you don’t want/need to be 100 percent, you can add millet, quinoa and steamed broccoli.. but no need to if you are happy!
    are you getting colonics? See Raw success by Matt Monarch or Dr. Norman walkers book on Colon health.. he lived to 118 on mostly raw and got regular colon cleanses!

    Congrats on the spirooli! I have the spirooli and the spiralizer. Each is so much fun. The spirooli is definitely the best with zucchini noodles!! For harder veggies, though, the spiralizer is better since it makes the “pasta” smaller and therefore it’s not as hard/crunch. I hope you’ll take some pics of the pasta dishes you’ll be making!!

    Lots of love to you,

    thanks, Wendi. i can’t wait for this Spirooli slicer to arrive… the anticipation is mounting. :o)

    ah, you have the other one, “Spiralizer”. that’s the one that makes angel hair pasta, right? well, that would be a very good purchase to… essential for the raw kitchen. :o)
