Today I begin my journey of the raw food cleanse.

For quite a while I have been thinking… why not?

Well I can wax you quite a tale about why not. However, this time it’s all about the why too.

Last night, I bought the Vitamix. Yes a little last minute but that is kind of how I am with most things. Not sure if it just keeps stuff exciting or if I really can’t help it due to some very smoothly worn pattern in my brain which provides those neurons a path of very little resistance.

This morning’s smoothie recipe/combo of fruits and veggies:

2 apples

2 oranges

Several handfuls of spinach

Tomatoes from the garden.. about 2 in total as there were a bunch of small ones(golden and red)

Carrot juice to thin it to a reasonable drinking consistency


…And can I just say.. yummmmmm


For lunch:

Remnants of the above smoothie, combined with:

2 pints of blueberries

1 leftover apple

Carrot juice again to thin

1 honking huge zucchini.. I am really serious here.

I’ll check back in after I return from building trails for the day of caring to let you know how I felt through lunch hour WITH doing manual labor. 😛

Should be interesting.

Okay.. all back now!!

For dinner the smoothie was this:

½ bunch of Kale

2 Peaches

Mango juice

2 bananas

Keep in mind that I am smoothie making for two people so for one you could just cut everything in half. J

I will have to admit that after the day of caring out at the Nature Consortiums project which is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle.. we were a bit fatigued. We stopped in at Thrive… had a smoothie boost from their kitchen which was great and shared a mighty thai salad which is cabbage, carrots, red bell pepper, a few raw cashew as garnish and their special vegan thai spicy sauce. It was mega yum. This led us to the possibility that we would want to gnosh on something once a day to satisfy the urge if we are going to take this past the 3 or 6 day mark and into the 15 day mark or even the 28 day mark. As long as that something is vegan for the first week and then at minimum vegetarian for the next week and then only going into animal protein dishes maybe two or three times a week for life. We’ll see how that pans out. Of course that animal protein will have to be purchased somewhere reputable, etc,etc, etc.

Okay… next 9/17 info… coming right up. J
