Survived my first intense craving for sweets!
When I got home from work last night - I was hit with a MAJOR craving for something sweet -- which is wierd because I hardly ever crave anything sweet.
I remembered on the DVD that Alissa made flax seed crackers - put Almond butter on it and then drizzled organic honey over that with some fruit.
Well, I didn't have any flax seed crackers but I did have celery!! So - I put almond butter on a celery stalk and drizzled a tiny bit of honey over that - and it was very satisfying! And the craving just went away.....
OH and I made a mistake on the menu -- guess portabella mushroom wasn't on the menu last week - in fact - it's on the menu for the 3rd or 4th day of this week... ah well... I ate it last night anyway. That's one of the great things about Alissa's 30 day schedule -- it's so flexible.
That recipe is a keeper!! It was so wonderful -- and my husband who decided to start eating cooked foods again along with fish, chicken and meat -- tasted what I was eating and he decided that he wanted that for dinner too!
Started doing ab crunches again. Somewhere under all that fat - there ARE muscles... I look forward to seeing them again!
It's actually hard to believe that I've been 100% raw for 11 days now... time is passing quickly - and my body is responding well. I'm full and satisfied - not hungry - and I don't feel deprived in any way. I look in the mirror and I can see that my face is changing...
my husband says - it's not changing -- the 'Real Me' is beginning to shine again ... :)
Tonight - it's 'almost tuna'!! I think I'll stuff it into a beautiful organic tomato!
