Raw Diet – Day 7

It is Friday night and I am only slightly missing my glass of wine while sitting on the couch.  Instead, I have washed the dishes and swept the kitchen floor.  I’m full of energy but starting to get a slight headache.  Today overall, was mostly free of headaches.

We tried something new for breakfast. It was a smoothie but it was not green!  I found a new recipe in a magazine from The Blender Girl. It was supposed to taste like chai tea and it did.  I will definitely keep this recipe.

I had a dentist appointment today, so I ate lunch early.  As a result, I ate two afternoon snacks.  I used some of the leftover coconut sauce from last night’s dessert as salad dressing today.  It was a nice change of pace.

For dinner, I was out of interesting ideas. since I had not had a green smoothie for breakfast, it was time to have one for dinner.  I made enough for the rest of the family to have a small glass with their food.  It is a good way to get some fruits and veggies into the orange chicken and fried rice dinner.  My six year old asked if fried rice was healthy because it was full of veggies.  Unfortunately it is not healthy because it is cooked with a fair amount of oil.  I am happy that they did eat every little carrot, pea and soy bean on their plate without complaint.
