I passed on having anything for lunch (I did drink a Kumbucha though...) because my breakfast cereal was very filling. Here's dinner:
I had some leftover Marinara, so I just mixed it in my Salad...YUMMM!!!
I can sit at the table while Hubby eats SAD and not feel deprived....
Wahooo! Oh boy, I think my body is kicking out some toxins! Already? Perhaps! Symptoms indicate adrenal stress - does anyone have pointers on good food to eat/ not eat to aid my lil kidneys in their cleanse? Thanks!
@Renee! I love your enthusiasm and your photos! The Brazil Nut Cheese is actually from Ani Phyo's book - it is 2 cloves garlic, 1 tsp sea salt, 2 c Brazil nuts, 4 Tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 cup water (as needed) and then stir in 1 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes.
Breakfast: same as yesterday, grawnola, goji and pumpkin seed mylk
Lunch: an apple and the other half of yesterday's pizza
Now I am munching on a Hail Merry chocolate pie. They are so good!!! Probably won't have dinner, or I will do a liquid dinner. Really tired and want to go to bed early.
Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Have an awesome day!
Thx Tguch!!!!! Definitely on my to make list!!!!
Here's Breaky on the road: French Toast (w/Manna Bread), Eggplant Bacon, & Cantelope
Planning juice the rest of the day!!!
RAWK on y'all!!!!!!
Manna bread looks good. I must try aubergine bacon.
Day 3 for me so far i have had a super emotional release/detox and all kinds of movement in the tummy. Although this is my first raw food challenge i have been a vegitarian on and off for about 15 years now so the detox has not been too severe. The other thing i have noticed not sure if its due to detox but i cant sleep, I was up til 9 this morning then took nap with baby.
lettuce tomatoes wraps with a bit of grapeseed oil veganase and vegetarian bacon bits very little for flavor. I have heard you can also use smoked liquid to get bacon affect.
cucumber sliced and dip peanut satan sauce.
pepper avacado parsley soup indian spices
flaxseed cracker with cashewalmond spread
@mystictree thank you i will try that
Smoked, organic paprika is a good way to get a smokey flavour.
I made a load of almond milk today! My first batch in years. It's exciting that it's actually cheaper to make than purchasing even the cheaper end pre-packaged stuff.
Now I have all this almond pulp and I want to make a savory crust, but most recipes i've found say to add flax meal. Only, I can't afford to go shopping at the moment. I do have sunflower seeds at the moment, and think maybe pulsing that in the FP and adding in some sundried tomatoes, olive oil, and italian seasonings.
I am a newbie though to the dehydrator, so if anyone can spot a flaw in my ingredients, please steer me in the right direction.
rest of the day: shared some chia puddin with banana with my young one.
finished off the cocoa-avocado pudding.
snacking on almonds and dried apricots (really need to reign that in!)
have some garbanzo beans sprouting in the kitchen, and want to make a hummus, or possibly falafel. eee!
I need to stay off this thread so I don't see those yummy pictures of Renee's while I juice fast today...lol. Those look awesome!!
"You are getting s-l-e-e-p-y...." :Renee waves her hand.....:

Is it tomorrow yet? Wish I were there to eat it! You are a magician not a hypnotist...:throwhearts:
Hi all -
Love the food pics, Renee - very inspiring. =)
Day three yesterday was awesome for me. I recently acquired a new blender - the Tribest Personal - and I tried using for the first time yesterday morning. I totally overfilled it and had a mini "explosion" of green liquid all over my kitchen. =O But other than that, a great day. Drinking lots of lemon water throughout the day in addition to my meals.
B: Pineapple & Coconut Smoothie
S: Pear & Spirulina Smoothie
L: Yummy Yummy Avocado Soup (so filling)
D: Curried Soup
S: Another Pineapple Smoothie
It's great to see the colorful pictures, I make sure I only check this thread when my willpower is strong as I've switched my plan to a juice fast this month, it is a detox for me on so many levels, I'm going deeper then I have before, it's a spiritual and emotional cleanse as well as a physical one.
I don't think it would be a problem using only almond meal/pulp. It might even taste better.

D: Arugula salad topped with an almond-pumpkin seed pate mixed with red pepper, parsley, broccoli sprouts and kale sprouts
I have Matthew Kenney's portobello sausage and pancakes in the dehydrator! Can't wait for tomorrow brunch!!
Love you all and wish you all energy, peace and a good night's sleep!
thanks Gianni. the recipes I've seen for pizza crust involving almond pulp still advised adding flax meal. I bought some flax seeds today and may just add them whole.
breaky was an apple--then an early dinner of raw pecan tacos. Discovered adding mushrooms was a good way to pad out the "meat". Also, I usually use a zucchini for that reason and to add some moisture, but was out and a bit of cucumber did the trick.
Might make a dessert here in a bit. It's going to involve cocoa, no doubt.
