I picked up my new Champion Juicer! I even dared to try it out. : ) I made apple juice first.. and I have to say that I have never, in my life, had better apple juice.... ever! I also juiced a honey dew melon, and pineapple spears. I wasn't very daring on my first try with the juicer, but I am sure in the days to come I will become more brave and try many new things!
Yesterday I fell away from my all raw diet a bit, not that it was because of temptation or cravings... It was because I didn't want to hurt my mothers feelings after she had made a cooked, but nice breakfast for me. I realized that I should make it clear to everyone in my house hold that I am eating differently now. She knew I was trying "raw eating", but didn't realize it was ALL raw.... yes mom..I am trying ALL Raw! lol
Anyhoo...I am back on track today. I started with a smoothie this morning.
Breakfast and lunch Smoothie;
2 pinapple spears
1/4 of a cucumber
small hand full of kale
1/2 a scoop of vegan supplement Vitamin powder
* It is green but yummy!!
For snack I had mixed nuts and seeds
I am trying warm water with a lemon wedge instead of coffee
and I have been drinking water
For Din I am trying warm tomato soup that my Sweetie made me.
I have been spending lots of time reading, and searching for recipes on the web today. I have been writing them down...saving them for later...hehee
I realize now, that in order to really do this properly, I am going to have to get a food dehydrator as well. Now that I have seen what I can make..I am even more excited about eating this way. I know that it is going to have to be a long term lifestyle change..and one that my body is absolutely in need of.
I am feeling pretty good still, and I haven't had any headaches from avoiding the coffee.
Have a Rawsome day!
