Okay folks….so today is Wednesday, September 30th, but this post is about Tuesday, September 29th. It's taking me more than a minute to figure out the online video thing, but I'm getting there.
Yesterday wasn't too horrible. I made a green smoothie with beet stalks, spinach, carrot, banana, 1 stalk of celery, fresh peaches and agave nectar. There is no rhyme or reason to my smoothies – I just put in what seems good at the moment. My smoothies however are anywhere but "smooth". I bought a cheap replacement blender when our Oster gave out on us. I want a Blendtec but they're pricey so we decided that in the meantime and in-between time we'll get something "cheap". Well cheap it is. When drinking my "smoothies" I'm still chewing on carrots, pieces of fruit and stray bits of veggie leaves. Fun experience let me tell ya.
Anyway, I noticed that while out yesterday I didn't have enough snacks so I ended up snacking on some granola (forgot to mention that in the video!). Not horrible, but because I am out so much with my kids I need to over prepare because I can no longer snack on the granola snacks, pretzels or tortilla chips I usually pack. I always pack fruit and baby carrots, but now I'll need to do more of this plus a little extra.
As promised, I want to share with you the link to my friend Reeshemah Holmes' Facebook site. She is also doing a 30 day raw food challenge (not detox with herbs like me….although eating raw does prompt natural detoxification) and she's doing a great job. Today is day 6 for her and it was from her that I decided to follow her lead and journal my progress via video….ultimate accountability that's for sure.
That's it for now. I feel like I'm getting better with the whole video thing, so hopefully you'll receive today's video TODAY. Take care folks!
A raw food detox challenge is never easy as it seems. People who are involved to this would undergo a lot of adjustments but above all the benefits are all worth the hard challenges.
