Slow Food and No Food

I really, really like to eat.  I especially like eating amazing food, but I also hold a soft spot for really bad for you food.

This makes what I’m doing now somewhat ridiculous.  I haven’t eaten solid food for 2 days.  Yep, I’m 4 days into a raw food cleanse and 2 days into the juicing portion, and I was feeling pretty great until tonight.  Because today, I drank copious amounts of homemade, fresh fruit and veggie juices…

Freshly Squeezed Blood Orange Juice


AND…  I also visited Alice Water’s restaurant online.  Just to look and plan my first visit for sometime this year.  The famed Chez Panisse’s menu (click here) this week features truffles- which I never seem to be able to get enough of!  Plus, it includes cassoulet, chicory salad, duck confit, crab cakes, and this- “Grilled Wolfe farm quail with black truffle sauce, wild mushrooms, fried potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes.”  ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!  That sounds absolutely delicious.  OH MY GOODNESS!

It was like I was setting myself up to drive to Berkeley for dinner…  or stop at In and Out for a Hamburger out of shear frustration.

But I didn’t.  I held strong.  Yeah, me.  (I said this last part sarcastically.  I’m suddenly grumpy and want food.)

Still, I wanted to write something here tonight.  This is post #21…  Guess that makes it a habit now!  And that’s way better than stopping for that burger.
