Raw Food Rehab

Two weeks ago I joined up with Penni Shelton from Real Food Tulsa.  She's running an experiment with a bunch of us who signed up to be guinea pigs.  We eat as well as we can, talking, blogging, experimenting and listening to her ideas on diet, exercise and well-being.  I lost 5 pounds the first week and none the second.  Hope to tweak a few things for this week.  One is to do a food journal and see where I may need some improvements.  I'm also trying to stop eating earlier in the evening...as I was eating pretty late before and would wake not feeling so great.  So I finish eating between 7pm and 8pm.

Here's what the first three days this week look like:

Sunday June 14th:

2.5 Litres of water (10 cups)
Hulk apple sauce (three apples, small bunch parsley, tbsp. Vitamineral Green
2 bananas
Green Juice (parsley, kale, romaine, mixed baby greens, cuke, lemon
Chocolate Pudding: 1 avo, 1 banana, 1tbsp agave, 1tbsp cocao
Stopped eating at 6:45pm
Exercise: 8 km walk

Monday June 15:

Water - 2 litres or 8 cups
2 strawberries, 1 banana, 1 apple
Huge Salad - apple, half cuke, greens and Vega dressing (4 tbsp vega antioxidant oil, 2 tbsp agave, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, sea salt and pepper to taste).
Chocolate pudding leftovers
half cuke
Exercise - none today :(
Stopped eating at 6:45pm

Tuesday June 16:

1.5 litres of water
Lime Lara bar
Grawnola with maca powder, macadamia nut butter, lucuma powder and 1tbsp. honey
Raw chocolate ice cream

Yikes, not my usual day but was fiddling with recipes today and ended up eating more than I should have. Very dense foods, but energy level was high today!
Stopped eating at 7pm
Exersice: 20 min. walk

Carrotmob is coming to Portland Oregon if you're there this week.

Eat Raw, Live Well!
