Food Journal

Well, I started the big trek today. I have been fully immersing myself in books, blogs and web searches soaking in the info. I think I'm ready, I hope I'm ready, I am:) 
It was quite an undertaking to prepare for a Raw lifestyle but I did it! Thanks to the many helpful blogs I came across like, Raw Success, Kristen's Raw, Raw Reform, Raw Epicurean and more, I have become quite intrigued with the Raw food lifestyle.
This week I'm focusing on detox so it will be full of smoothies and fresh vegetable juices. I'll throw some roughage in there for good measure too:)
I have added helpful links to my "Sites I Love" so that you to can check them out.

My food intake today:

Energizing Workout Smoothie (Kristen's Raw)

Detoxifying Smoothie (Kristen's Raw)

The Greatest Hummus in the World w/carrots (Kristen's Raw)

handful of raw, soaked almonds and a couple of dates

Huge salad with raw dressing

frozen blueberries

Don't forget, for all of the Raw supplies check out The Raw Food World picture link on the right.

Yeah Nicole! :-D I'll be cheering for your success. A few words of advise, if by chance you "slip up" or "fall of the wagon" or whatever analogy one may use, don't worry, don't stress, don't beat yourself up, just pick up where you left off and start again.

Yum, nice intake and yes indeed Kristen rawcks!!! I'm so excited for you. Three cheers to the healthiest new you!

... and thanks for the mention. I'm honored to be among such excellent company.

Thanks for the advice Ingrid! I am a bit OCD when it comes to sticking to a plan. That perfectionism is also what messes me up sometimes. It has to be 100% or nothing. If and when I do stumbleI will heed your advice for sure:)

Sounds like an exciting adventure. Keep us posted on how awesome you feel! I just ordered a really awesome juicer so I'm hoping to bring some extra health to our family.

Nicole said...

Juicers are awesome! My cousin is letting me borrow her wheat grass juicer, yeah!
