Did I mention I am LOVIN' the Coconut Oil? It is Supa' Yummy!
So I mentioned on my last blog about how wondrous the Coconut oil is. It has made my Smoothies more exciting again. I tend to try a lot of the same combinations of fruits each day. It is because I feel safe eating certain combinations . I have tried being adventurous and ended up eating something that I could barely get down....However, I am going to make more of an effort to mix it up a bit, so I get a variety of fruits and veggies through out the day.
On day 11 of my Raw Vegan Diet I started with a glass of water...say it with me.."Water is our friend".. and it is good to drink lots of water everyday. I made a smoothie of;
2 apples hand full of kale hand full of spinach 1 carrot 1 celery stalk 1 banana 1 scoop of Vegan Vitamin supplement hand full of ice
I had a snack of snow peas and chucks of red pepper
I took this all with me as well when I went running around today..so I sort of grazed all afternoon in between my appointment at the Hyperbaric Clinic and driving. More about my adventures with the increased oxygen later.
*for the top I mixed together oil vinegar and honey ( Which comes from bees...bee poop never tasted so good!) The honey is more of a vegetarian choice than a vegan one, but I was happy to have this small vice and I still felt that I was being healthy....and it made it taste so GOOD!!
In the evening I had warm water with lemon as I sat with my Mother and my Sweetie, playing card games before beddie bies....
Wonderful day...and it is great to take time for small pleasures after the kiddies settle down for the night. Quiet time with loved ones is a treasure beyond all others. Taking the time to nurture the relationships between you and the ones you love is so important to all around happiness. Love and support take you a long way in life..and as you give..So will you receive that love and support....and if you don't kick their butts....lol or get replacements...heehee!!
I am a beautiful soul filled with light..looking to touch others with sunshine..and when I am down I trust that my friends will share their light with me. Such is the web of life, so I believe..I also believe in treating others, as I would like to be treated..I believe in Karma. I believe in forgiveness..even when it is hard to do...I believe in beauty within people..I see the best in others..and try to work on making myself the best "Me" I can be right at this moment...I believe in appreciating the moment..and letting those around me know they are special to me. Tomorrow may never come...live for the moment...just "Be". I try not to worry ...it does not change anything positively..I try to be Positive and happy..I respect and love those around me. I believe that energy should flow in a healthy way. Learning to give and to recieve is a beautiful thing..The most important thing is to care about the things that truely matter....appreciate the moments that make it all worth while..watch the sunset...and sunrise...watch the moon grow big in the sky...
Tommorow may never come..soak up today!
