Okay so there have been request for me to post my food intake...sure!
Yesterday (October 15th) I had...
Bkfst: green juice (cuke, celery, kale, lemon, apple)
Snack: green smoothie (banana, spinach, froz straw, hempseeds)
Lunch: 2 nori wraps (avoc, tomato, onion, romaine, black olives)
Snack: raw homemade applesauce
Dinner: zucchini pasta with marinara (oh yea oh yea)
b4 bed: chia seeds soaked in almond mylk with apples diced in and 1/4 c walnuts
I know that some people eat less than half that in a day's time, but NOT ME. I go thru phases where I want it light and simple...like Summer time, but for right now, I want to eat...eat healthy and eat tasty, yummy, nutritious raw foods. All this hype and talk about you have to do it this way or that way is just bogus to me. I change my mind with the seasons and so that's how I eat. If I want gourmet raw... I make it. Or if I'm in NYC...I buy it! If I want it simple...I keep it simple. You don't have to do anything, but try to make the healthiest choices with what YOU have available and go from there.
I do the best I can with what I have and I'm darned proud of it. Oh yea...go Jayna'...You're awesome... oh yea.
The holidays are near. I will post a blog dedicated to raw holiday ebooks (most of which I don't own b/c I can't afford em), but I will challenge you to take your pick of ONE and make ONE recipe from it this holiday season. If you want to go all out and have a full on raw holiday meal... come on!! If not, that's O-K-A-Y. I will be posting a Conscious Raw Holiday Challenge (with a prize) and a Detox-No-Retox New Year's Challenge (complete with 3 day juice feasting). You will be welcome to join me or simply read for your amusement.
For all who have stuck with me although I was absent blogging...thank you. My goal and aim here is to inspire. To let you know that real people do raw in real ways. That even a person who grew up eating all New Orleans creole and cajun cooking can change....that I lost 70 lbs the steady, slow, healthy way and that if I can do it...so CAN YOU.
