Wednesday, Day 79, 100% Raw Fruitarian. Busy day today. Before i get into what i ate today, i want to relate a small detox experience. i wouldn't have mentioned it at all except it came to me that it may help someone so i decided to blog it. About a week ago, i awoke with a pain in the back of my mouth. It hurt very badly so that i could not open my mouth for a large spoonful of fruit. i looked into the mirror to investigate and i saw in the back of the right side of my mouth, a large lump. It looked like it was about to burst. Now, i know people who, when faced with such things automatically go into panic mode. Being that i really distrust hospitals, doctors and science for the most part, i literally would rather die than panic about such things. i ascribed it to detox and just kept on going. The pain got worse and worse over the next 3 days so that it almost felt like i had a very bad sore throat. The lump actually grew. Then over the next several days it began to slowly subside. As of the writing of this blog (its actually Thursday morning), its completely gone. No pain and its as if it never came at all. What i am learning is, in spite of being a raw vegan for 5 years, the Fruitarian diet is surely at altogether another level. In terms of all areas, spiritual, fitness, cleansing and detox. Its very thorough.
Large non-sweet fruity salad with plantain sauce. The fruit salad contained: one tomato, one medium size zucchini, one apple, large chunk of a large papaya (i'd say 25% of it), 2 stalks of celery and half a cup of raisins. The sauce had: one very ripe plantain, 6-8oz of fresh squeezed oj, small pieces of the celery (the tops and leaves), half a cup of raisins, red pepper, curry and basil. (i also sprinkled the same spices on the salad itself with alittle cayenne, probably didn't need the cayenne).
3 tangerines, 3 navel oranges, mini papaya.
Exercise: none today.
Grace and peace be multiplied.
