I didn't keep track of what I ate for a couple days. Too much work. And I really didn't want to be accountable. It was a lot of raw chocolate treats. In between eating all that chocolate I managed to make some juice, green smoothies and salad. Correction: I didn't eat ALL the chocolate, there is still plenty left.
Lunch: Green SuperFood Smoothie - chard, romaine, orange, frzn banana, 2 T. each hemp seeds, gojis, and VitamineralGreen, 1 T. each spirulina, chia seeds, and hempseed oil, 2 t. each kelp powder, lucuma, mesquite and MSM, 1 t. maca, 1 date. I think that was everything, I opened the cupboard and fridge and just went crazy with it.
That was the last of the mineral green so I went to the Raw Vegan Source and stocked up. Now that I have a dehydrator and am loaded up on chocolates I was able to stick to the basics and not buy a bunch of expensive treats. I almost stuck to my list. Besides the VitamineralGreen I was completely out of almonds, cashews, olive oil, blue agave, hempseeds, toothpaste and honey. Also picked up a bag of wheatgrass juice powder, sesame seeds, and a packet of Didi's Mac'n Cheese Crackers. They are $4.29 for 4 little crackers! I really need to work on my own version of those.
Snack: Mac'n Cheese Crackers. Ate them while in the car on the way home. I hate eating in the car. I always feel the people that see me eating are thinking, "The fat lady shouldn't be eating those cookies." I feel like yelling, "Hey, it's health food!" I know that it's silly to worry about what people think of you, because you would be surprised to find how seldom they are actually thinking of you. Or something like that.
Stopped at PCC on the way home for a coconut and curly kale. Didn't stick to the list this time. Ended up with a bunch of other stuff, too. Ate a few dried figs on the way home. Soon as I got home I opened the cashews to soak some for Cheesy Curly Kale Chips. Snacked on a couple handfuls of cashews before dinner.
Dinner: Smoothie - juice of 4 carrots put in the vitamix with an apple, dandelion greens, wedge of lemon, and wheatgrass powder.
Dessert: 2 of the Chocolate, Chocolate Brownies. (See my previous journal entry.) These are amazing. They have the taste and texture of a really good brownie. As far as I can remember that is. ;) It's the macadamias that make them so super. I'll probably have a few bites of Fudge Pie later.
My binge days are winding down. My ankles were very swollen all through this period. My hormone problem is settling down now. I'll come out of this okay. I had to fight off some serious cooked cravings. Maybe the cacao set them off, but I think it was the other way around. Having the cacao kept me from going cooked. Whatever, it's almost over and I'm feeling the need for a lot of intense superfoods and smoothies.
There is still a fast, or at least a modified fast in my future. Next Sunday, the 8th I am beginning a 3 day juice fast around the full moon of February 9. I'm going to try and go light on the juice and heavy on the water that day. It will be the first time I've done that. It's a start.
