Well although I am still sick... I feel a lot better! It is now 10pm... my fever is gone, my head ache is gone, my throat doesnt hurt as bad... I wonder if it is all of the wholesome food that I have been eating?? perhaps.
Well I woke up this morning and the first thing I did was get on the scale. Although I dont feel comfortable sharing my starting weight with you all, I am comfortable to inform you of any weight loss (I am not by any means over weight.. I know this... but hey its still an uncomfortable thing to share!)
I am excited to see that after just one day of raw eating I lost exactly 1 lb! (Mind you this is without working out too... I needed to give my sick body a break from the gym today and yesterday).
Ok so now onto the food.
Breakfast consisted of three dehydrated crackers (made by moms trainer) topped with raw Pistachio butter. Also I enjoyed a side of sliced banana and strawberries!
(I lost the pic in my camera for some reason! BoOOOO)
Lunch was a "green Smoothy"...well kind of
It consisted of banana, strawberry, peaches (all frozen)a scoop of chia seeds, flax seeds, and a scoop of spirulina. I never usually like green smoothies, but I enjoyed this. I hate how spirulina tastes but it was masked by the fruits :) YUMM and had so many great entities to boost my immune system and to kick this cold!!!
I was pretty hungry all day (Surprisingly because yesterday I wasnt at all). Probably because I laid around all day studying and watching tv and letting my belly say FEED ME!!!
of course I listened! I snacked on 3 mejool dates, some celery sticks, an apple, raw pistachios, and a few sips of my left over smoothy ( i made about two serving
By Dinner I WAS READY for a HUGE salad.... when I say huge.. i dont mean big.. i mean GINORMOUS!!
This bad boy was piled high with mixed greens, green cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, sundried tomatoes, strawberries, olives (which im not sure are raw but its ok i suppose) avocado, mushroom, and some dried cranberries. I topped it with a little balsamic and olive oil and yummmm It filled me up!
I also made some raw mashed "potatoes". I used some cauliflower, green onion, garlic, water, pine nuts, salt and pepper to taste. It wasn't terrible... but it made me feel a little nauseous. I think its because to me, it was supposed to be warm... actually, if it
was warmed up I bed it would taste great... i think I added too much green onion... oopss!
I ended my eating day with a whole mango. It was a little old, but still good :)
all in all, Im ending today still hungry and not completely satisfied. I think that I am going to have to eat a better breakfast that will last me all day, so that what I eat through out the day will last me.
till tomorrow :)
