Golden raisins, yogurt coated raisins, pineapple, papaya, almonds, cashew nuts and pistachio kernels.

I have purchased a large 400g pack of nuts and fruit from Julian Graves in an attempt to increase my protein intake and take better care of my body. It is an absolutely delicious mix, just rather generous in calorie content. But if I try to ignore the numbers, I can accept the food as being lovely and nutritious. Just a small portion a day and hopefully I will begin to notice the difference in my skin, hair and nails. It's not in a vain manner, just in the sense that I really need to learn to have a better and more respectful relationship with my body. My nails often turn a blue colour, my hair falls out, my skin condition is very temperamental, and I am anaemic. Those factors, amongst other things, are helping me see that I do have to make changes. I sometimes struggle to keep up with my own life. Clearly I need to change something..

Caffiene ban is going very well. I am still drinking a few good old cups of tea a day, but that is because there are too many health benefits for me not to.

I was remeniscing last night, of the 'myths' my mother and grandmother used to tell me when I was a child..
'Eat up all your carrots, they help you see in the dark!'
'Eat the crusts from your sandwiches. They make your hair curly'
Ha! If only health benefits were that simple in the real world.
