My outfit for the day.
I ordered a book from the library and read it. It's The Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose. I started adding what I could this week.
When I first began to eat more raw foods I came across this book years ago. It seemed extreme to me then.Now having read the book (instead of skimming through it as I did before),I realized how ready I am ready for it. I went shopping and had the right foods and my plan laid out. I started on Monday.
I had specifically bought only organic items.
I did the Tracy Anderson video three times for about twenty minuets- with loads of breaks.
I love the results so far. I weigh 155. Down Four pounds.
My waist is now 33.5.
I ordered a copy of the book last night as a present for losing four pounds. I love the results so far and the recipes are very easy to prepare, so I want a copy I can keep.
I have some organic carrots and green apples left from the week.
For this weekend I had to look for the most food for my buck and stopped in a tiny grocer in East La for the first time. I look the posters of fresh produce and the really fantastic prices whenever I drive to work and wonder what the produce really looked like.
organic produce before juicing during the week
Everything looked as fresh as it does at the farmers market. The only missing were greens, so I had to get some spinach elsewhere. I need to give the kale a rest for a bit. I have had it for two weeks with out a break in smoothies, salads and juices.
Time to try out veggies I have never used before.
I spent around nine dollars and have enough to juice the weekend and get through work on Monday. I will consume between 1.5 and 2 liters of juice a day.
Nothing was marked organic in the store.
It will be interesting to see if this weekends produce food hinders weight loss.
I will find the manager and ask where the produce comes from when I go back.
I have been drinking a version of Green Lemonade fro the Raw Detox Book. I drink it all day long getting in about 2 liters by evening.
This week I had the same dinner, a zucchini salad I made on Sunday with some Yogi berry detox tea. I made enough for the week so that I could relax when I got home in the evening. I would have it cold or warm it for a few hours in the dehydrator.
Having a great big bowl on hand allowed me to concentrate my energy on making fresh juice each night.
So far so good.
