Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
(Swedish proverb)
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
(Sicilian proverb)
Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
(Elbert Hubbard)
You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
(Laurence J. Peter)
Friends are family you choose for yourself.

I became a raw foodist 2 weeks before my 40th birthday (3rd of August) in 2003. I quickly transitioned to a high % of raw. Recently, I decided to create this website to share the information with my raw friends and to have some record of my journey. Today I am starting my raw journal. Here it is.

Today, I read an interesting discussion on the rawfoodsupport forum between those who like more fruit in their diet and those who like more vegies. I could not make up my mind about which ones were REALLY right. You see, I eat bananas and sweet fruit every day. My life is sweeter with them. I find them nutricious and satisfying. At the same time, I do love my vegies for lunch and dinner. I also like flat bread from time to time, and saurkraut, and nutcheese. Well, it will be interesting to see what my dietary patterns are in about a year.
Today, I reminded myself about the importance of being prepared. Do not go shopping hungry. I avoided that cooked vegan restaurant that gave me pimples last time I went there, and had a nice salad for lunch instead, at my office. It was so yummy! I was eating it like a rabbit!

The discussion really was about the calories. That is, whether they should be coming from sweet fruit (bananas, for example) or fat (avoes and nuts). Well, I like both.
I am starving this morning. Persimmons, grapes, bananas, this is my breakfast. Looks like a salad for lunch.
Yesterday, I made my first corn bread. Looks delicious. Must try it tonight. Also, I was making saurkraut again. This time, I was taking photos. I hope to find some time to put them on the recipes. Busy busy busy. Going to Beijing in three weeks.
