In a rush this morning getting ready for church, but slammed down the rest of yesterday's green breakfast smoothie. Looking forward to a huge salad when I get home. :)
So far today:
1 raw cacao/coconut bar

This is day 2 of my plant based diet. I picked greens, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers from my garden this morning. Food made with love.:)
I had my favorite smoothie for breakfast. Cocao, almond milk, banana, and strawberries. I love this combo, so yummy!
Thinking I will have the rest of my Kale salad for lunch.
I'm moving all day today. I sold my house (yes!!!) but have 25 days to move (oh s*&^!!) and..of course they can back out anytime all the way until the day we sign the closing papers--and I have to be 100% out that day..the day that might not happen..sigh--
I'm just pushing forward with all the moving..If I do a little at a time it will be easier. For today I am taking almost all of my kids toys/playroom stuff to my mom's. She babysits anyway and it will be nice to go visit their toys instead of having them all locked up under other boxes in storage.
So there ya go Kidkid--and I think it's a great idea to get close on this thread. Even though all of cyberspace is also getting close, too=p
Today I'm planning--
spinach and banana green smoothie
walnut banana cocoa honey vanilla blender ice cream (for my friend who is helping me move and rawcurious)
guacamole and fresh salsa eaten with the hard romaine heart pieces I'm going to smuggle into Chuy's
dinner salad at chuy's with the salsa as dressing
I am way too spontaneous to follow a plan I'm afraid--but it does help to take a mental inventory of what's available to me--but I might just have the smoothie and then eat watermelon, oranges and pecans and more smoothies all day=p
Thanks for listening!=)
What an amazing second day!!
I went to the beach! Never have been there for... I don't know... something like ten years. And even if I am fat and horrible, I put on my bathing suit and I swam and I sunbathed! And I loved every minute of it!!
And I stayed raw. Even if my friends had spaghetti, friggione (a cooked and oiled mix of bell pepper, tomato and onion; it's a regional italian recipe) and fish. I am very proud of myself!
But tomorrow will be the real challenge: During the working days it's difficult for me to prepare something good. Actually, I think is just a psichological thing. You know, something like "I don't have much time... I'd prefere to buy something already fixed than do it by myself..." And so on... Just excuses (is it the right word??).
Anyway, yesterday and today we have joked. Tomorrow is going to be serious. See you all out there.
Have a nice evening.
Hey, I've had to re-register as I couldn't recover my password (was rawtango).
Anyway, day 2 has been a little hard, headachy, dealing with 13 month old running amok! Still, I've stayed 100% so far. Eating citrus and bananas today, some avo. Hope to make a large salad tonight.
Keep going everyone, even if you hit the wall of irritability!
I had some challenges today as I went to a family gathering and they ordered out for food. I made a salad and ate that while they ate, and probably would have been satisfied with it if I didn't see/smell other food. But I made it through.
I've been really emotional today and having the feeling that there's not enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. Hopefully I'll be in a better space tomorrow!
Food for the day was some E3Live, a banana-mango smoothie, salad with avocado, jalapeno stuffed olives and raw sauerkraut, and some watermelon and cantaloupe. I'm not sure about dinner yet but it will probably be a smoothie.
Hope you are all having a good day!

A little late, but tomorrow will be my first day of 100% raw. I have never even done a full day raw no less a month. We'll see how it goes.
congrats on the sale and move.... and your smoothies sounds fab... I'm going to have to step outside my fave of acai, cherries, bananas and kale!
... scatter joy...
day 2........... wooHOO!
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Day 2.... gorgeous day, delicious food (so far smoothie: cherries, blueberries, bananas, & ice; grapes and now getting ready for dinner.... I've got another salad planned cuz we're spending the evening by the lake... it's just too gorgeous to pass up. Love reading everyone's comments.... this is a very inspiring and motivational environment.... thanks, everyone!
... scatter joy...
Stayed raw, even amidst the food pushers. I just said, thank you but eating raw makes me feel good. I also said, I dont think there's anything unhealthy about your food, but when I eat certain things I have an almost allergic reaction and overeat, but don't worry this salad is really, really good.
(it wasn't really, just a house salad at Chili's with avacado, pinkish tomatoes and pico de gallo--but I stayed raw and the feeling of pride was way more satisfying than any cooked food)
Then I came home and ate an apple and an avocado.=)
See, I told you I cant stick to a plan-- but I did stay raw=)
yesterday I ended up just finishing off the raw, soaked aduki beans for dinner
B - water (that's what my body wanted after all of those beans!)
L - fruit smoothie; mango, peach, banana, apple
S - Go Raw's simple (soaked and dehydrated, salt free) sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds
D - awesome spicy cole slaw I invented (handful of soaked walnuts, half a ripe serrano chili, half a pink lady apple, 1/4 of a sweet onion, small clove of garlic, splash of ACV - put all in BlendTec and liquefy, then pour over thinly sliced cabbage. Add a couple dashes of sea salt to release the water in the cabbage, stir all together and enjoy!)
Dsrt - Medjool dates
