Day Ten for me, woohoo!! I'm still having trouble with staying up too late (why can't I have this energy in the morning?), so I'm sleepy today. Writing a final paper and then I'm done with school for two weeks (yay!).
32 oz fave green juice (spinach, celery, cucumber, parsley)
1 raw chocolate macaroon (which reminded me I don't like coconut :p
28 oz green smoothie (spinach, bits of broccoli, zucchini, carrot, cucumber, mango, pineapple, orange juice, bananas)
For dinner, I'm planning to go back to Bliss Raw Cafe to celebrate the end of my summer semester and to eat some of the yummy pizza that I was eyeing on the menu yesterday. I feel very blessed to have access to such a delicious place!
I'm definitely going to exercise today, since I have to go to bed early or I'll be toast at work tomorrow. I'm planning to do an exercise DVD this afternoon, and then a long walk with my dog in the evening (it's super hot here, so we have to wait until the sun goes down).
Isn't raw AMAZING?!!
Love and grace to all!

S: celery with mock peanut sauce

Found an organic market really near me that has pretty much anything I ever wanted (including raw tahini, raw macaroons and the best nectarines I have ever had)! So excited :)
Today all I've had so far is a whole grapefruit, a slice of nectarine, and a few (large) mouthfuls of zucchini hummus... my first raw recipe! Well, except for smoothies. I've always tried to avoid 'uncooking' because I hate nut-based recipes and mostly I'm happy with a salad and/or fruit.
Tonight, though, I'm going to try to convert my parents a little bit... hence the raw hummus and the macaroons, which I'm serving for dessert. It's a good day!
Hopefully the rest of the day will go like this:
Snack: zucchini hummus with celery, grape tomatoes, and zucchini crudites
Dinner: big kale salad with lots of baby tomatoes
Dessert: nectarine slices and one mint-chip coconut macaroon :)

yesterday and today were both pretty great. Yesterday I met up with an old friend who now works at a juice bar, so i got tons of free juice and smoothies!
.a young coconut for breakfast
.a massaged kale salad with tomato, cucumber, green onion, and red pepper .for lunch
.a banana while i was out
.beet, chard, celery, garlic, carrot juice
.an avocado and a slice of watermelon for dinner
yeah, pretty good day. and my mom commented on my glowing skin today as well. I also have a strong cough because I am detoxing from quitting cigarettes. I haven't even had any cravings and it's been almost a week! yay!

thank you shels! I have quit many times in the past, but so far this time it feels much easier. It feels natural somehow, as opposed to strenuous. Perhaps it is because i'm trying to quit in conjunction with eating raw and doing so much yoga and deep breathing. who knows! I just hope it sticks this time!
