I’ve been meaning to update about the 10 day raw food cleanse for the past few days! Today is day 3 and things are going well. There is no doubt that the raw food week I did in March helped boost my confidence and abilities for this cleanse. I have a few staple meals now (green smoothies & cauliflower curry soup) and I think my tummy is getting more used to this way of eating. I was wondering the other day if I’m eating fewer calories than normal. My first instict was YES! However, I have been eating a lot of nuts and seeds, olive and coconut oils, as well as my homemade chunks of energy. (I’ll admit the first batch was not 100% raw, but the next one will be – to come!)
This is the green smoothie I began the cleanse with on Monday:
I also wanted to share my happy table:
And a yummy salad: Swiss chard, spinach, yellow onion, avocado, pepitas, nutritional yeast, homemade kraut-chi and homemade dressing.
For dessert! Avocado-banana pie!
This pie was absolutely delicious and tasted just like a naughty dessert – guilt free! The crust is a mixture of almonds, sunflower seeds, and walnuts, coconut oil and honey. The pie is pureed avocado, banana, and walnuts, sprinkled with unsweetened coconut. For next time, I got the idea to add chocolate from Edible Perspective! Can’t wait to make this later in the week with the raw cacao nibs I indulged in at the health food store last night! Will share!
