Started the day craving baked, meat filled snacks!
However, we were strong and had:
crudites (celery, carrot, cucumber) with the left over sauces from last nights lasagne.
1 piece walnut fudge
cabbage wraps (savoy cabbage filled with sweet pepper, cucumber, mung sprouts, mushrooms, grated carrot) with a spicy tomato salsa and a mock peanut satay sauce.
piece of yesterdays apple pie
1 square of raw chocolate
I think the cabbage wraps are the best thing we've done so far, tasted fabulous and the satay sauce was better than any "normal" version I've had.
The hard bit starts tomorrow when I go back to work!

So far.. no cravings, and it's been really easy! I am down 4 pounds in 3 days, too..
Had only one meal today, so far, but I did get up really late (after 1 PM!):
B: smoothie with 2 bananas, kale, 1 container of blackberries and an eggless salad sandwich on onion/flax bread with some cheezy sweet potato chips
D: mango, banana, strawberries, pineapples, walnuts and 2 scoops of raw choc ice cream
S: cheezy sweet potato chips

day 2 for me
1 had 2 green smoothies today.
salad boring. dressing was just olive oil, apple cider vinegar with agave.
I just made salsa with my daughter I have flax crackers in the dehydrater.
I bought some fresh coconut water today to make smoothies with and they had red oranges they are so sweet and delicious.
I have been really tired today and a headache. I didn't want to move. Is this just detoxing?? I am looking forward to all of this raw energy. I need it.
I am doing low fat...cause I've been eating to many fats. Started 1/1/10 and have lost 6 lbs already. Eating alot of whole fruits and veggies and limiting my seeds.
yesterday had a lot of fat and was not hungry this morning!
went to church, then swimming and THEN made my green smoothie. following a recipe for a celery-banana smoothie and WHOA! i was stuffed.
2 lbs bananas (or somewhere close to that)
water to desired consistency.
don't want to eat anything else today! :)
VL Green Smoothie
4 x flax crackers with avo/tomato
4 brazil nuts
alfredo pasta with mushrooms and green salad for dinner
No tears to today thank goodness, lol, my back is killing me though???
