Back to normal posting! I forgot for the first part of the day that I’d be posting this so there is no juice picture but I did manage to snap up the rest.
Wednesday Food Goodness:
16 oz. spring water
24 oz. cucumber/romaine/cilantro/ginger/lemon/lime juice with lemon stevia
32 oz. Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl with ginger and fennel plus half a box of cherry tomatoes.
Dinner was veggie wraps made with cabbage leaves, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, chives, fresh corn and apple cider vinegar mustard.
We had planned on going to a raw potluck but my dish ended up a bit of a disaster due to leaving my food processor at my other place. I ate several of the disastrous treats anyways 😉 I made the crust with coconut instead of pumpkin seeds to keep them well combined.
In other news, Ana has invited me to join her 14 day Sugar-Free Challenge and we’d love for you to join us as well! I’ve had really good experiences in the past removing sugar from my diet for periods at a time and even in my day-to-day I’m quite conscious of it. After all of my indulgences in New York though, this is just in time! Ana has outlined the dietary details for us:
Avoid: most grain and grain products, all fruit, sugar sweetened treats such as dark chocolate and Laloos Ice-cream, caffeine and alcohol
Bask in the glory of: veggie juices, greens, raw and cooked neutral veggies, sweet root veggies (yes, they are “sugary”, but low glycemic),”fruit-veggies” such as cucumbers and tomatoes, avocados, young coconut meat, lemons and limes, daily mediations, morning pages, yoga, rebounding, dry brushing, saunas, baths, regular bowel cleansing, Candigone, probiotics, 3% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide, tea and stevia!
Include moderately: cooked starchy vegetables such as sweet potatoes and winter squashes, mushrooms, organic young coconut water, small amounts of raw organic nuts and seeds, cocoa powder and raw cacao.
I’m looking at this as a time for indulging in new recipe ideas (maybe playing with the extra ideas I had when creating my Sugar-Free Dessert E-book) and taking bars of Lily’s or Coco Polo stevia-sweetened chocolates to work.
If, as Ana says, you’ve been dealing with skin issues, stubborn weight, brain fog, lethargy, sleeplessness, reproductive problems, moodiness (especially when you are hungry) and cravings, then this is a great jolt in the right direction.
Leave either of us a comment or an e-mail if you’d like to join us and be looking forward to our updates and recipes over the next couple of weeks!
