No need for rockstar status

It helps me to remember that being raw doesn't *mean* anything. It doesn't mean I'm perfect, dogmatic, religiously zealous, 100%, etc. It just means that I tend toward raw food. I eat dairy sometimes and french fries and pie. But I love raw food, I eat mostly raw food, and raw food suits me. That's all.

I'm always trying to be the "good girl" in all I do...and honestly, it's not good for me. I just try to eat better for my own benefit, not for others.

I always get curious folks, questioning my methods, but I can't take it personally. They just want to know. But I don't need to bash myself just because I'm not perfect ALL THE TIME.

At the moment, I'm trying to stay raw until 3pm. No hard and fast restrictions, I just try, every day, to wait til 3pm to eat cooked food or not so raw foods. So far, it makes me feel better...which is plenty for me.
