Raw Food Trial: Day 9

Detox and Weight

I had a little more energy then yesterday but still suffered from little motivation and focus.  I had a low grade headache off and on all day today.
My weight went up 1 pound since yesterday, putting my total weight loss at 6.5 pounds.
My face has broken out a bit.  Yuck, but i am glad my body is getting rid of what it needs to.  My scalp has started to itch like crazy.
I slept for 7 hours last night down from 9 the night before.
Also, (and this may be too much information, to the faint of heart may want to skip a head to the next section) after i went to bed, i could not get comfortable.  I felt like my jammies were smothering me.  I sleep in sweat pants and a hooded sweat shirts.  I finally had to get up and take them off.  After that, i feel right asleep.

Food

I made 2 juices today.  The green one is, orange, swiss chard, carrot, kiwi, and romaine lettuce.  The red one is from  Raw Food Made Easy For 1 or 2 People called V7 juice.  However, i omitted the bell pepper because i am allergic.  I also omitted the celery because we ran out.  It is tomato, garlic, cucumber, jalapeno, and cilantro.


The green one was liked by my mom.  Lindsay said it tasted a little bland but she still sucked it down with a smile.  I am thinking about making more then 8oz of green juice for people in the morning.  I am making it in the vitamix so i blend then i squeeze it they a nut milk bag.
The red one to be tasted a bit like an acidic salsa.  It got strong fast.  My mom did not like it at all.  I found both to taste equal.

I had some fruit, 2 oranges, a banana, and an apple.  Then i made myself a cucumber, tomato, avocado plate.  It really hit the spot.  I ended up making myself another one of these about 2 hours later.

For dinner, i made ranch dressing from  Raw Food Made Easy For 1 or 2 People on a romaine salad with tomato and just a little avocado (since i had already had so much of it today).  Lindsay and i agreed it was very creamy but tasted more like blue cheese then ranch.  Lindsay was very happy to have a familiar taste back that was not fruit.
With the salad i made a strawberry, grape, spinach smoothie.  It was ok, but really was too sweet.

Day 9

Alas, another short entry as I have have gotten such a late start.

Today was the first time that I had social/business interaction where I had to say no thank you to something that I would normally say “Please sir, I want some more,” and it wasn’t as bad as I thought.

I started to discuss end of the month transitions with Adrienne, since I know that my body has changed a bit.  This morning I went to eat some artichoke hearts that were 90% raw and they made me sick to my stomach.  I am also beginning to look at the food combinations that I eat and how my body reacts to them.  Should be interesting.

And now today’s joke:

What is big, green, fuzzy, and if it fell out of a tree would kill you?

A pool table.

(I have no idea why, but I have always loved that joke:))

Night,

Lindsay
