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 apples 1 banana 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! :)
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!
