day five: any restrictive diets can get hard and a raw diet is no exception. We live in a life of extremes, we ping-pong back and forth between polar shifts, trying to find our place. Today, I had to make peace with this part of my personality. I have been running around for days getting things ready for the shop in between seeing clients, realising that I was in fact contradicting my post on day one. Unless I am in clinic, finding raw foods on the run can be difficult and as life does…it tends to run away from me; Suddenly realising it will be a long time between breakfast and my next feed.
When I put clients on restrictive diets, I tend to give them 3 ‘get out of jail free cards’ per week. This allows them 3 faux pas to sneak in a bit of whatever they’re not allowed to have, to make life a little bit easier.
I am a realist naturopath that perhaps, sometimes has unrealistic expectations for herself. On top of this crazy week, I took on Staples Stores first catering job….today on top of business and naturopathic stuff; it was going to get busy. So, this morning I let my hair down, got a soy latte from Batch and powered through the morning to a big bowl of soup for lunch. I’ve cashed in 2 chips and I am just a little more sane today than yesterday. I have finally forgiven myself, I hope you can forgive me too….
