Alissa's 30 Day Plan EXTENDED -Daily LOG - PHOTOS included!!!!
ARE *** YOU *** READY!!!!!!!!!!!
A HEARTY GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!!!! It's about that time!!!! Time for ANOTHER 30 DAY THREAD!!!!!! Here's What I'm planning for week 1:
:::NOTE::: THE PHOTOS OF THE FOOD FROM ALISSA'S RESTAURANT, GREZZO, IS ON PAGE 12 OF THIS THREAD....YOU WILL NEED TO SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE PHOTOS.
WEEK 1: The pages are all from ALISSA'S Book, Living On Live Food
Bananas, Berries, & Cream (Pg 443)
Kim Chi (Pg 299)
Eggplant Parmesean (Pg 402)
Spinach Mushroom Quiche (ANNIE TWISTED MY ARM!!!!) (Pg 433) ***think I may move this to Week 2
Banana Leather (Pg 524)
Angel Hair Pasta w/Marinara Sauce (Pg 395)
Zippy Tomato Soup (Pg 360)
Snicker Bites (RFT)
Eggplant Bacon (RFT) (added)
BTW, My kids (ages 11 and 7) want to join me on this Challenge!!!! YEA!!!!!! I'm incredibly excited about that!!!!!!! It's gonna help a LOT not having to cook for them during the day!!! But, it means that I'm gonna have to be more prepared than ever to make sure that they have enough to eat. They LOVE the Smoothies and most of the meals...especially the Nori Rolls, Collard Rolls, Eggplant Pizza (with the Marinara Sauce instead of the nuts), and things like that. My Son is allergic to most NUTS (except Almonds), so I'll just use mostly seeds for him.
Last night, I started out by making the Cream for the Bananas, Berries, & Cream (For my SON I will alter it by making Alissa's sauce from the Crepes to pour over the Bananas & Berries), and I made the Eggplant Parmesean--which I'll have today for dinner (I have Maranara Sauce left over from this, so I'll use that and Spiral some noodles for my SON'S dinner--adding some Avacado to it...). I also got plenty of fruit and things to make Smoothies and Salads. Gotta go find my camera to download the photos...
I am SOOO Excited about this!!! Looking forward to many more changes this month!!! I have some NEW Challenges to contend with this month...keeping my kids interested being one of them... But, I'm up for it! Doing the last 30 days has prepared me to continue more focused than ever!!! My best friends are joining me this month and it's such a priviledge to help them!!!
EXERCIZE: A couple of weeks ago, I twisted my ankle, so I can't do running on a treadmill, but I can do a slow walk, work with weights, work with my band, or do an exercise tape, so I'll do some of that today.

Ready Betty, I mean Renee! I'm so with you girlfriend. You are starting when, NOW?
Yes, TODAY will be DAY 1 or DAY 31....which do you think I should use?
Congrats Renne on Day 31 WOOHOO
I may make a few of the things you listed in your 4 week menu - looked thorugh Alissa's book the other night and wrote down some ingredients I need...probbaly will make some tonight and over the weekend.
Thankx rennee for offering suggestions. This is one thing lacking in my raw world is the prep. I like to keep it simple yet then I have nothing for when I want something special thus I eat cooked...ugh.
You inspired me to try and buy the book. Its a heap of money for me right now.
Renee, so excited for you and your kids. That is so amazing!!!
Can't wait to see your scrumptious photos.

I personally think day 31 would be the way I would go, so that when people are looking at the thread there is no confusion of which thread came first. ALSO, it technically is NOT day 1, you have 30 consecutive days under your raw belt, something to really be proud of. I am looking forward to the next 30 days. Congrats on your kiddos joining you!
SW - 176
CW - 155
GW - First Goal 140
Good luck Renee. I'll be following you all the way!
WEEK 5 DAY 31:
Thanks so much you guys!!!
Here's some photos so far:
Today we had the Banana, Berries, and Cream. Here it is for DYLAN (allergy to NUTS) who had it with Alissa's Strawberry Sauce from the Crepes...
Here it is again with Alissa's Sauce....
LUNCH TODAY!!! I made Alissa's Zucchini Pasta w/Marinara Sauce and a Salad. I did let the kids have regular Ranch Dressing for the Salad cuz Dylan can't have nuts and Sydnei (my daughter, Age 7) didn't like it. Dylan wasn't crazy about the Marinara Sauce...I don't think he likes dates..., so I'll make a different one next time for him.
...to be Continued (They only let me have 4 pix's per post...)

Renee the pictures just won't load for me. Been leaving them to load for 15 minutes and still nothing. Perhaps you could make them smaller or something?
