Nancy Leson takes the plunge: goes on raw foods diet

After writing yesterday’s post regarding raw foods, reading up on the subject and considering the ill effects of eating last night’s multi-course Szechuan Chinese dinner (to say nothing of such deliriously delicious abominations as the famous Bacon Explosion), I’ve decided to take the plunge. I’m (temporarily) joining the raw foods movement. I won’t be roasting chickens, toasting no-knead bread, or exploring the joys of eating Reuben sandwiches and bakery treats. And you can read all about it here on my blog! At this point in my life I feel a serious intervention is necessary. My plan, for the short-term, is to join the majority of local raw foodists and go the raw-vegan route for the next two weeks, eschewing unpasterized dairy products (goodbye raw milk cheeses!), raw meat (ixnay on the carpaccio!), three-egg omelets and (waaaaaah!) sushi. Stay tuned to see how I feel and how I fare.
