Recapping on my bicycling goal. I failed. It wasn’t a complete failure, but pretty bad. I am now biking on average 3.5 days a week. I am definitely better off than I would have been had I not taken on the challenge.
On to my new challenge for myself: Eating one raw meal a day.
It seems simple enough, but it means I have to actually buy groceries on a consistent basis. As I start this blog, I am at this moment eating an apple and will soon have some red leaf lettuce and a tiny bit of organic dressing. Although I must admit I had a pecan cinnamon roll and sugary coffee for breakfast.
I can’t wait to see how eating just one raw meal a day makes me feel. It’s a sure way to get more veggies and fruits into my diet.
Reasons behind my decision are as follows:
Planet – a raw diet is much more sustainable
Reducing sugar cravings
My sweetest meal is always breakfast, so logically this will be my raw meal time.
The morning after starting this blog I ate a valencia orange and some organic strawberries. I love eating fruit, the challenge is eating raw veggies. My bike ride to work today felt great! It might be due to the fruit for breakfast, but I think it’s a bit to early to feel the effect. I definitely did not eat enough fruit. I was hungry within an hour after breakfast.
One thing I know for sure is this was a better way to start out my day than with coffee and a giant muffin.
