So, I've been neglecting my blog like mad the past two weeks, but things are so busy, and life is changing (no update on that yet, but stay tuned), and I just have had to put some things on the back burner.  No worries, though.  Modern Southerner will be back to normal soon, promise!

In the mean time, I've been doing well with the raw diet, I did start cheating a bit, but that's because I'm only doing raw a little and just going vegetarian/vegan.  I say "vegetarian/vegan" because I am still going to eat fish and shrimp, but no other animal products.  I'm sorry, I'm from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, southerners eat seafood...  plus fish and shrimp (here at least) live in their natural environment.

My cheats (they aren't bad, promise):
+ Veggie Chips and Hummus...  usually I eat hummus with carrots, but out of shear need for a different texture I've picked up some veggie chips.  Yum, yum!

+ Shrimp...  I had a salad yesterday at lunch that was grilled shrimp, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, capers, and artichoke.  It was delicious.  I went and saw my mom yesterday, so she took me to a nice lunch.  It was the best time!  I've missed my mom so much, so getting to spend the day with her was wonderful!

That's it, other than that I've been drinking fresh juice and eating lots of salad, carrots, etc.

For an entire week I did the juicing/raw, now my plans are to drink the juice still, eat salads, but also eat beans, nuts, cooked veggies, a little bread (although I'm going gluten free as soon as I can afford it), and dried fruit, veggies, etc, and tea.  The raw juices are still going to be a part of my diet, though!  I'm not eating fast food, fried foods (I might cheat on shrimp or okra very seldom, and try to do it at home so I can make sure no other animal products went into it), sodas, meat, animal products, or anything else unhealthy.

Ok, I'm rambling because I miss my blog!!  I'll be updating more regularly soon, and I'm going to get back to more interesting content then me rambling.  I can't wait to share some big news in the coming weeks, but that must wait!  Don't want to jinx anything!

Happy Sunday, all!
