my face looks better! even a little helps. i am gosh darn sick of adult acne. I also didn't need my inhaler today when i went running. i usually need 1 puff within the first 10 minutes. I didn't and completely forgot, then realized i haven't needed it! booo asthma and acne! yay RAW!
morning: fruit and kale smootie with hemp seed and protein
lunch: big freaking salad. peppers tomatoes carrots chard broccoli, light oil dressing
evening: blueberry and frozen banana smoothie with hemp protein, raw sunflower seeds, a date coconut bar
excited and proud cuz i got some portabellas marinating for dinner tomorrow. need to mix it up a bit and start learning how to "cook" raw
thanks so much mystictree. I will try that tomorrow. and i also completely forgot about soaking!
Melon and raspberries for breakfast. Weather is foul - at least the garden is getting a drink - and I am waiting in for the police and scene of crime people to take statements and check out for evidence after an incident last night with some drunken yobs. So Haven't gone to work yet and no idea when they are coming.
Hmmmm.... it's interesting what you folks have been saying about losing weight and counting calories. I so much want to loose these extra pounds I am carrying around. I have been counting calories and have been thinking "what's the point?" Maybe it's time to just give up on the counting and let my body function normally on a raw diet. I noticed that I have been loosing about 1/2 lb. a week since I started being mostly raw. That isn't much in my mind, but maybe if I can accept that and not stress over it I will be better off.
Thank you all for posting. You are truly an inspiration to me. I had one thing cooked yesterday, but I am back today! Today will be a watermelon fast!
Thinking about Raw: 161.6 lbs. (5/5/2011)
155.4 lbs. (6/3/2012) Beginning Water Only Fast
143.6 lbs. (6/10/2012)
Goal: Healthy and 130 lbs. (Or whatever is right for me!)
Made Green Ice cream yesterday! lol Pretty much a green smoothie but used frozen bananas to keep it more like ice cream and it was a yummy way to get some more greens in. I need to make some more almond milk and breads this weekend.
For lunch today i'm thinking collard wraps!! Can't wait to buy kale also cause i'm dying to make more kale chips!!
I've noticed my skin is finally getting sooo smooth! Even my tummy is getting tighter each day :) these changes are working for me.
I'm excited to try and make a pbj salad using almond butter with grapes on spinach probably will sprinkle almonds in the salad for crunch might even throw some strawberries in there but they're out of season now so they're pricey. I'll definitely let you know how this comes out lol Have a awesome day!
30 Day Raw Challenge Jul1 2011-Aug1 2011
We eat to live, Not live to eat!
Eating the right foods will clear it up....but if you're getting impatient, get your hands on some Tea Tree oil (if you're in the states, you should be able to find it at Walgreens for about $10). A little dab on each spot will help clear it up pretty quickly.

I'm noticing that my "muffin-top" is starting to disappear - this is fun news. :)
Worked all night. Just got in. They had a party with all kinds of bad things. I ate a huge salad with wonderful things. Thanks Mystic for the salad dressing recipe. It was wonderful! My goal is to eat a head of leafy green every day. Red onions finally came in! They were so good! On the way home this morning, I stopped to buy a pineapple. Spent $130.00 and left without the pineapple. Requesting hubby to pick one up for me.
I have a huge tub of fresh blueberries that I plan to enjoy tonight. I can't wait!
Glad you liked the dressing ... I've done that pineapple thing too. I bet we all have :)

That guac was so good I felt like I was cheating! Yum! :)
The morning is going well. So far I've had a few cantaloupe slices and a peach. There's a farewell luncheon for our summer intern today and there's a catered lunch. 90% of my coworkers know I'm raw so, I'm not worried about it. I brought in some raw collard wraps I picked up from my local HFS yesterday evening. I hope they're tasty, if not, I have a nice-sized back up garden salad.
Keep well. :)
You sound well organised :)
My bf just juiced me 6 small apples, 6 carrots, 1 huge stick celery and half a large beetroot. Very delicious and the beetroot made it look very pretty while adding an earthy note. about a pint in all.
I'm back! Yes that's right - I did the 30 day challenge back in 2005 and went off of it for 6 years!! Ahh!! Anyway, in that time I've lost energy, gained all the weight back I lost + more, have skin issues.. Anyway. This is day 1 for me...
So far today I've consumed: Juiced carrots + pineapple for a tall glass of juice.
-A few strawberries
-Water - need more
:) Blessings to all! I look forward to re-learning and learning more new recipes.. I need to bike to the store soon!

I'm feeling much better today - I've been in a fog all week and woke up SUPER dizzy this morning. I'm guessing B-12 deficiency. I did some quick research this morning, sent my husband out to get me a good B complex vitamin (sub-lingual), dropped it under my tongue and feel MUCH better this afternoon. I'm hoping that's what it was and it's not just a fluke that I'm feeling better. I'm still a little dizzy but nothing like I was. Running my own company, I have to be 100% ALL of the time and I just haven't been feeling it this week - which is no good for me. I feel human again - was starting to think I was turning into a zombie. LOL
Smoothie for breakfast this morning. Salad for lunch. Smoothie now. Nothing too exciting but it's delicious and I'm not complaining. I think I'll make some granola bars tonight and dehydrate them while I sleep. They were SUPER delicious the last time I made them.
I stopped by Whole Foods today and they're finally carrying Brad's Raw Chips. I got the cheddar ones....pretty tasty.
Day 3 and 4
Today was a pretty good day. Im starting to have more energy, and also see a bit of the bloating in my face go down. I didnt post yesterdays food because I got caught up doing other things, but it was a sucessful raw day.
Yesterday (day 3)
- 40oz green smoothie w/ spinach, 2 bananas and frozen mango
- 1/2lb red grapes
- fruit salad w/ mango, bluberries, kiwi and strawberries
- 2 raw taco wraps w/ guacamole
- 1 raw bar
Today (day 4)
- 1/2 mini watermelon
- 1lb grapes and cherries
- 1 raw bar
- salad w/ romaine, onion, avocado, olives
- 32oz fresh squeezed orange juice
I've also been getting in more H20 which is great. I know that im getting lots of water through the food im eating but i want to get in additional water. Anyway day 4 was successful, although I had to give myself a few pep talks, I got through it. Bring on day 5!!
today I had:
B: fresh squeezed OJ
L: flax crackers with taco "meat" (ground up walnuts mixed with mexican spices) and a green salad
D: banana, buckwheat cracker with pecan butter, and sauerkraut.. a weird combo, but I am a kraut lover and will eat it with just about anything. :-)
