Day 9 – Planning Ahead

As we enter week 2, I started thinking more seriously about the schedule of adding certain foods into the regimen. One goal I wanted to hit was eating Raw for the first month. Raw is important because when food stays below 200º F the natural occurring enzymes stay in their most active form. These enzymes…

Day 8 – what to eat next

I have what we like to call Food Emotions. And they are strong!  A well done meal or perfectly poured drink can make my day just as much as sub-par food brings out my worst. It doesn’t take long for hungry to escalate to hangry, and if you’re not careful it can quickly deteriorate to whiney.  Knowing…

Day 5 – My Bounty

Day 2 – Celery, Smoothies, and Cauli-Apple Slaw

Today we had to wake up at 5:15 for an early flight to work. This is the kind of day I’d love to start with a cappuccino and…
