30 Days on Live Blended Foods

From 5/20/06 through 6/20/06 I am eating all live (not cooked) blended (using a blender) foods. Here I post my experiences with this lifestyle. Specific foods I include daily are fruits, vegetables, greens, nuts, seeds, and super foods. My focus is also high water content with herbal teas, nut and seed drinks, and pure, distilled water.

The Human Blender

I'm on to this human blending concept.

Last night I felt constipated in all senses of the word. The upper and lower parts of me felt clear, but the middle was stuck. The breakthrough: I'm imbalanced here. This is familiar territory in my life as I'm a "mover and shaker" and on-the-go in mind, body, spirit and emotions.

What happened from here was a midnight snack. I carefully cut up an avocado, sprinkled my beloved cacao bits on top [I hadn't eaten this raw chocolate in a month] and then topped with Goji berries. I ate this slow-ly and savored the blending of the flavors and textures in my mouth. I truly blended them well.

I link my feelings of imbalance to my mind's hold on "the shoulds" of life (got me again!) like straight mechanical blending. I felt a sense of relief when I allowed myself to let-go of this "have to" and really enjoy my food. I've consumed tremendous bulk by mechanically blending: most times 1/2-1 bunch of greens and 3-4 pieces of fruit in 3 or more cups of water. It was nice to have a smaller meal and really savor it. I also felt more in touch with my need to drink water.

I return to the breath. I'm aware of the tension I hold in my gut when I'm not fully breathing. Remembering to surrender to these simple truths is comforting, even if only for this brief moment.

The sky breathes too. Clouds are a bit dark and we're seeing signs of raindrops.
