Breakfast: Smoothie - carrot and apple juice blended with baby spinach
Snack: couple of nuts, a tiny handful of sunflower seeds, a few cheezy kale chips (Had to test to see if they were done dehydrating, they weren't.)
Lunch: Smoothie - Cucumber, spinach, cilantro, 2 T. soaked chia seeds, 1/2 frozen banana. 2 T. green food powder Even though it was 6 hours since the breakfast smoothie I wasn't very hungry. Only drank half of it, about 16 oz.
Snack: Had to test the D food, again. Finished off the cheezy kale chips. This batch was only 3 big dino kale leaves with a little leftover dressing made from sunflower seeds and red pepper.
Took the nuts out of the D and made Cheez-Its. Of course I ate a couple more before processing the cheez-it batter. It's in the D tonight. My husband says I'm stinking up the basement again.
Dinner: Todd's Waldorf Salad - apple, tomato, 1/2 red pepper, 1/4 red onion, 1 small avocado, 1 T. olive oil, cayenne Very nice combo. Quick and easy. Next time use a shallot or spring onion.
Feeling pretty good about this raw day. I've been very mellow and pleasant to be around, much better than yesterday. My daughter is in the kitchen frosting and decorating a chocolate cake. She is using the squeeze bags and 3 different colors frosting. I'm not going to go in and look at it until she is done. That way I won't be tempted to interfere with advice. She wanted to help me create a raw cake for myself but it's getting too late for that. I'm kinda fighting the urge to make a little cacao treat. But I am fighting it. I'm not hungry and there is always tomorrow.
Lazy....as in no exercise today. Oh well, what was that about tomorrow...?
I sure am using the sarcastic smiley a lot tonight. Must be part of that mellow feeling.

Nutrient levels: at about 75% for protein, calcium, niacin, and zinc, rest are off the chart.
For the record, I'm not that serious about a juice/smoothie fast right now, obviously. I'm putting it on my calendar for Feb 8-10. Full moon is Feb 9. I read somewhere this is a good time to do detox. Sounds good to me. That gives me another 2 weeks to eat whatever I want. Raw of course. Did I need to say that?
