Good morning from the land of sleeping children! I have been running my girls ragged this summer and they are sleeping in today!!! Yay!!!
Today is August 1st and my first day back into the land of raw. I never go into anything in my life without a plan, so of course, my raw eating is no different. I am not going to do one hundred percent raw as I had planned. I am going to do 80%.
Here is what the menu looks like for today. Breakfast was delicious ;0)
1-2 handfuls of spinach
1 tbsp maca powder
3 tbsp hemp protein powder
blended into a smoothie with 8 oz of Vita coco coconut water (not raw- coconut water is pasteurized unless it comes straight from the coconut itself)
2-3 cups romaine
1 can of salmon (not raw, clearly not vegan)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 scoops Sunwarrior protein powder
Remember friends, hydration is key. You will be doing a lot of detoxing as you add more raw, organic foods and lots of water and exercise can help flush those toxins like the little bitches that they are. Fruit is a heavy detoxer and not everyone tolerates a lot well. When I look at my day, after coming off of Paleo, 3 pieces of fruit seems like a lot, but in the raw world, you eat a shit ton of fruit. I'm trying to find the right balance between too much and too little.
Hope you guys have a successful, happy, and vibrant August 1st!!!!
