I Remember

Hello! It has been a while, hasn't it? I promise, I have not forgotten you. I have been fairly busy with school and my job. I do have some news, however. I am on a gluten-free vegan alkalizing "diet" for the next 30 days. Not a diet in the "lose weight" sense of the word, but in the attain better health sense. My acid/alkaline balance is WAY acid. This is most likely due to extremely acidic water, but I am alkalizing my body just to be safe.

This means that I am eating very few carbohydrates. Almost all of my protein comes from almonds as they are the only alkaline-producing nuts that are available to me. Foods you won't think of as acid-forming - bananas, Brazil nuts, plums - are things that I will be staying away from for a while. I'll post some of my lunches very soon. I promise. In the mean time, enjoy autumn before winter sneaks up on us.

Love the pics. Looks like you're using a 50mm 1.8 or 1.4, are you?

Funny you mentioned the cleanse, I JUST picked up a book on an alkalizing cleanse...and I'm just not ready yet to do it.

I just read on you're profile that you're 14. Seriously? Wow. You rock.

Lovely pictures! I am jealous of anyone who gets to experience a real fall! I am definitely interested in hearing more about the diet as I think about doing something similar all the time.

Hey Harriet  

Oh I was wondering why you've been so quiet here of late. Looking forward to seeing more of your yummy lunches. All the best with the new diet! And lastly, I LOVE those photos :)

Good luck with your new diet - I'm excited to hear your thoughts about it because I've thought about going gluten-free in the past (due to stomach issues).

Never though bodies can be alkalized/acidified. Hope it works out well for you!

Great photos!
I love a good cleanse; we tend to pursue ours in the spring, but a fall cleanse sounds like a fantastic idea.
