No Brainer

I saw these new bars at Trader Joe's today. It said raw and vegan on the label so I went ahead and bought a box of them. Because raw and vegan and Trader Joe's.

I want to thank you guys for all of your great messages on Facebook and Twitter and email. I love seeing the raw things you are eating and hearing about the new things you're trying with your food. It feels good, right?

What I ate today:

• coffee
• 4 bananas (I know)
• Brazil nuts
• Trader Joe's Apple/Mango Bar
• green juice - kale, spinach, apple (Grassroots)
• salad - romaine, almonds, olive oil, Lick Dill Cashew Spread
• zucchini/yellow squash "noodles" - olive oil, basil, tomatoes
• dark chocolate w/sea salt (Trader Joe's)

  1. Please be careful and don't let healthy eating slide into an eating disorder. 10 bananas in 3 days? Vitamin D and B-12 deficiency? Blogging every single day about every single thing you eat? Eating over-priced food that doesn't taste good so you can feel self-righteous about being vegan? These are not normal healthy things to be doing. The warning signs are there. Please, please, be careful.

    What constitutes orthorexia?

    Are you spending more than three hours a day thinking about healthy food?
    Are you planning tomorrow's menu today?
    Is the virtue you feel about what you eat more important than the pleasure you receive from eating it?
    Has the quality of your life decreased as the quality of your diet increased?
    Have you become stricter with yourself?
    Does your self-esteem get a boost from eating healthy?
    Do you look down on others who don't eat this way?
    Do you skip foods you once enjoyed in order to eat the "right" foods?
    Does your diet make it difficult for you to eat anywhere but at home?
    Do you feel guilt when you stray from your diet?
    When you eat the way you're supposed to, do you feel in total control?

    If you answered yes to two or three of these questions, you may have a mild case of orthorexia. Four or more means that you need to relax more when it comes to food. If all these items apply to you, you have become obsessed with food.
