Hello everyone! I'd like to join in for the month of June. Yesterday I managed 100% for the first time in months. Today I feel pretty good but my face looks terrible. I have pimples everywhere. I tried something new today-kumquats. What a strange fruit. I really want to be committed to 100% so I figure I need to expand my horizons so I'm not eating salad all the time.

I'm having major major fat-cravings, after being on mostly fruits for this past week. I go through about 3 avocados a day, plus coconut oil, plus Udo's, plus nuts or seeds... But i'm just gonna keep listening to my body and eat 'til i don't want it anymore (not over-eatig "don't want it", but intutively "don't want it")
B - 2 big glasses of green juice, soaked oats, banana and rasins
S - Avocado, banana
S - Banana, orange
L/D - Pineapple, avocado, banana, 2 dates
S - Mango, avocado, coconnut oil/dates, pecans

Hi guys! Today was a total junk food day for me, but it was all raw so I'm being forgiving with myself and I'm going to try harder tomorrow to eat less fat & more greens. Today was a really, really bad day at the animal shelter I work at and I guess all the fat & cacao was my brain's way of trying to get comfort food..?
-5 bananas, some plain and some w/ a total of 2 T raw almond butter & some raw cacao powder
-salad w/ spring mix & baby romaine, a red pepper, 3 T guacamole and a little vinegar. Apple, banana, lara bar.
-3 more bananas w/ raw cacao and 1 T raw almond butter
workout was work & lifting upper body weights
So basically I ate bananas, almond butter & raw cacao all day. Not my best day by a long shot :eek: I may have an apple or another small all-veggie salad later but I'm not at all hungry at the moment.

I'm joining the monthly challenge today. I tried the challenge an few months ago and fell back into SAD. I'm back on the right path and hoping to really do it 100% this time. I definitely feel better than ever when I'm totally raw.

I just received Alissa's book on the weekend and I've decided to try the 30-day challenge. I will try to follow her 4-week menu.
Every morning, I start out with a green smoothie.
Today, I made the following:
Sprouted lentil salad (not from the book)
With this, I should have meals for a couple of days.
I'm not eating quite as light as some of you. I still need my three meals a day.

Today I had a green smoothie for breakfast followed about an hour later with half a cantaloupe.
For lunch I had a salad of lettuce, arugula, tomatoes & cauliflower topped with a sweet & spicy dressing and garlicky cheez sauce. I had another bowl just now for a snack.
I am not sure what dinner will be - only that it will be raw - and at the meeting I am going to tonight, I will only have raw fruit.
I am planning on having another green smoothie today - maybe that will be my supper. :)

Today was a good day for me. I listed my food in my blog and then forgot to copy it so I could paste it here. I'm a little sleep deprived so I'm not going to bother for today.
Hope everyone has a great evening,

Feeling really good. Bit hungry today but managed to stick to my citrus water and no cigarettes. whoo hoo!
Cant wait for my organic boxes to arrive tomorrow. I've been sprouting and soaking in preparation.

I didn't get a chance to write here yesterday so here I am! Remember that trail mix I was talking about June 1? Well it was sooooo good I ate so much without even realizing that I had forgotten to soak the nuts and I got very sick June 2! Too many nuts + not soaked = sick. However most of the day was great and I love the recipes I have been trying out. They are all so quick and easy!
