I would like to think I have a relatively healthy relationship with food. I eat vegan, mostly local, at least 60% raw, whole and unprocessed foods. I eat when I’m hungry, and don’t when I’m not. But I have an issue with not paying attention while consuming the food I have thought so deeply about before purchasing. And I often eat too fast without taking time to fully enjoy what I eat.
Day 5. Friday- final day and breaking the fast 😀
I had the same routine this morning as rest of the week, making breakfast to my darlings and then preparing and making juices for me. I was thinking to myself that I am so sick and tired of cleaning the juicer :P. I felt that this would be the main reason why I could break my fast and start eating again :P. It just so annoying to wash, peel, cut and juice everything and then after cleaning up the juicer is the worst. I love cooking, but juicing is another thing. Such a big amount of effort ant the result is just juice :P. At least this is how I felt today. And before this juice fast I had no problem making fresh juices, but then it was more like a choice rather than a obligation :D.
I have never had problems with quitting anything I have quit wheat and sugar, meat, poultry and fish without looking back and lately also all dairy products and I have also quit coffee for some time ago. I find it easier to just quit cold turkey and never look back. It also helps to do your research, so you know exactly how harmful the thing you are trying quit is for you.
I have quit eating dairy products and there is a good reason for it. The cows milk is designed for cow baby’s not for humans and drinking this makes us sick and harm the environment and animals also. I can truly say that I feel so much better without dairy in my menu. And I really don’t miss anything, okay almost anything, I kinda think about cheese sometimes, but I am working on discovering alternatives for it. I don’t take this as something I have to deprive myself, rather I think I have the opportunity to discover so much more better foods for me. There are so many good things to eat, so I can’t see any reason why I should eat something that is bad for my body and health. I have done my research and the info I have found is enough for me to make this change and feel confident about it. I have found many articles, opinions, theories and researches to validate my decision, but the most important thing is that my body is telling me also that I am better without dairy and that’s most important to me. I think everybody have to do their own research. Remember, dairy is not crucial for good health. I encourage you to go dairy-free and see what it does for you. Start to think with your own head and use your gut feeling and you will understand what is true and what is not. Below you can find informative summary about dairy, in my opinion it is really clearly and thoroughly explained. Dairy is nature’s perfect food- but only if you’re a calf.
