July 28th - Day Twenty Eight
My headache from yesterday is mostly gone but I was exhausted when I woke up this morning so decided to skip the gym and sleep a bit longer. I had nausea this morning after having my E3 Live so I didn't have anything else until lunch. Feeling much better tonight.
Here was my day:
- E3 Live
- Smoothie with banana, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, spinach and coconut oil
- Raw sauerkraut
Tonight I am making watermelon soup and plan to have some green juice and some coconut milk. Hope you are all having a great day!

I found a very fruitful fig tree today as i was out walking around in 103 degree heat. They were just plopping all over the ground and getting run over by cars, so i didn't feel bad grabbing all the ripe ones i could reach. Unfortunately, that's the last time for a while that i'm gonna go in for the super sweet fruits. From this day forth, for at least a few months, I'm taking the plunge and doing what's best for my PCOS: I'm eating all raw, and all low glycemic! WOOHOO! let the healing and the serious emotional detoxing BEGIN!:)
So today I had:
Water water water! It's 103 degrees out!
water with cucumber
and some water
kidkid - Mmmm, fresh figs. I bet those were good.
Blueberries with Alissa’s pineapple nut cream
Tomato with last of Alissa’s Almost Tuna
Butternut Squash seeds
60 oz water total
mmaynard - I'm sorry about the detox! I am confused on this, how long are you supposed to feel crap before you feel great?? I only felt amazing for the first week, then haven't really felt that way since.
I'm so envious of you ladies in the U.S. with access to Alissa's products! It's so much cheaper to be raw over there. Husband and I can't continue together beyond this month due to the costs! I'll be strict for 30 days (ending August 15). We talked about a Vitamix as a mutual Xmas present to make it easier but December is a ways away.

MMM, I have never had fresh figs. I LOVE dried figs so I bet fresh figs are amazing.
I feel so much better, I had some good energy today. Good thing because we went to the state fair and walked around for 8 hours. Talk about sore feet, lol. I packed our supper instead of our usually midway treats we have every year. If mama can't have 'em, ain't nobody gonna have 'em plus we saved some good money by bringing our own food.
B: Green smoothie of banana, kale, almonds, coconut oil, and cinnamon
L: I honestly can't remember. I had some trail mix at the fair, that must have been lunch!
S: Guacamole with carrot and celery sticks. Tomato and cucumber salad with olive oil.

Getting back on the wagon after being off raw for over a year.
What happened to Day 29? I enjoy reading the posts on the Monthly Challenge, to see what everyone is eating. Gives me menu ideas.
