Raw Diet – Day 5

I slept fairly well again except for three trips to use the bathroom.  I focused on drinking 64 ounces of water yesterday, so I’m not surprised about the multiple trips! I weighed in 5.8 pounds less than my starting weight today.  Hopefully I’m losing fat in addition to the water.

I was not starving this morning as I had been yesterday. There was a chill in the air. I can tell fall is coming and I was missing my usual hot cup of coffee or tea. I made a kale smoothie with cashews. I prepared for today with protein more often by including nuts in my smoothie and my afternoon snack. I was hungry again at 10:30, so I ate a plum for a snack.

At lunch, I ate the pico de gallo from yesterday. The batch made enough for three servings. I will be eating it again tomorrow. To mix it up, I ate it with spinach instead of lettuce.  Although not hungry, I ate almonds for an afternoon snack to keep my energy going.

It was leftover remake night at our house.  The family ate a left over pork roast turned into BBQ sandwiches and baked fries.  I didn’t mind my dinner of honeydew melon with blueberries.  It was perfectly ripe and delicious.  I scooped each bite out of the melon with a spoon and it actually took me longer to eat my dinner than the rest of the family.  As a side note, I was able to prepare my dinner in under 2 minutes and their dinner took 30 minutes. Winning!

I had stopped at Haggen on the way home today and searched for a raw snack food other than fresh fruit and veggies. I found Brad’s Raw Chruchy Kale in two flavors, Nacho and Vampire Killer.  I wasn’t able to decide which to try, so I purchased them both. I tried the Nacho flavor today. It was good but not great. It was also weirdly addictive.  I wanted to keep eating it because the flavor was so new to me.
