Raw Diet – Day 6

imageI’m over half way through.  Today was rough, I was ready to throw in the towel until my dessert/dinner.

Breakfast was very tasty. I really enjoyed the green apple in my smoothie for it’s sweet tart flavor.  I was quite hungry by 9:30 and dove into my almond mid-morning snack. Time flew by and before I knew it I was hungry for lunch and it was 12:30.  Unfortunately, I cut into my avocado at lunch time and found strange brown, stringy, rotten looking things staring back at me.  This didn’t leave me with much to eat for lunch.

I wasn’t hungry at 3:00 but knew it was only a matter of time. I went to the local QFC and couldn’t find anything raw nuts.  They were all roasted.  I ended up buying some natural chunky peanut butter. It was delicious with a banana, but was not raw….hopefully close enough.

When I arrived home, I nibbled on the nacho kale chips from yesterday while I made a dessert for dinner and for the rest of the family.  It was a Fruit Tart recipe from Blender Babes that I recently saw on Facebook. I did not take a picture because mine looked nothing like theirs.  I really liked the taste and so did my husband.  It disappeared before I had a chance to ask if he liked it!  My two boys have different tastes; one loved the fruit and one loved the crust.
