Raw Diet – Day 2

I went to sleep with a headache and slept alright.  I had the chills through the night. I awoke very hungry and felt the need to eat immediately! Later, when the family was up, I made a smoothie for myself and my husband.  For the kids, I made 19 grain bread french toast and fresh strawberries.  It was tempting, but having my husband share the smoothie helps to keep me motivated.

For lunch, we were off to sell popcorn for the annual Boy Scouts fundraiser.  I made a kale ice cream smoothie recipe that I had tried on the Blender Babes 21 day challenge. I didn’t share it with anyone, so it packed a lot of calories.  I was not hungry or tempted at all because it was so delicious.  I skipped an afternoon snack and sipped water with lemon instead.

For dinner, again the family wanted to go out. I offered to cook but because it was the weekend, my husband felt like exploring a new restaurant.  I figured I could find something on the menu to eat and I did.  I was not satisfied by the meal but it was affordable and gave me a plate of food to eat with everyone else.  I came home and ate a quarter of a honeydew melon to fill me up.
