I'm thankful for my family...but a little nervous for dinner tomorrow

Posted Nov 25 2009 10:06pm
My Dad is visiting for the Thanksgiving Holiday and we have been having a fantastic time. I have been preparing all the delicious salads and green juices I would normally eat and my Dad has been really enjoying them. I do add some cheese and a few other cooked foods on the side for him to enjoy along with the raw foods. He is the biggest supporter of my diet he will try anything that I prepare and always loves it. Today I made a huge salad, some basil pesto and a side of raw collard greens for lunch. I showed him how to add the pesto and the salad to make a yummy wrap. He enjoyed it very much and he told me that he was going to start buying collard greens and making wraps when he got home.

It is so special to me that he is enjoying the raw foods I prepare for him. I just love
making my salads, cutting up my fruits and sprouting seeds. I am so relaxed and happy eating this way.
My husband too will try any raw dish I prepare and always likes them, but he still loves his cooked food best. He is eating healthier since I've gone high raw, which makes me happy.
I am not sure what will happen tomorrow it is my first Thanksgiving on my diet. We have lots of family coming over tomorrow for dinner so I'm a little nervous. My husband is brining his turkey as I write this. I am planning on making a few raw dishes to add to the potatoes and stuffing my husband will prepare. I hope nobody notices that I am not eating the cooked ones. Thanksgiving food has never been my favorite type of food; even before going raw I didn't like it very much. I don't like foods that make me feel too stuffed and too sleepy. Hopefully we will all be able to focus on being thankful for being together rather than on the food.
