So last weekend I went camping with the family for four days, and when I returned home, I got on the scale and was UP five pounds! WHAT?!?!? My diet was right on key (according to my food sensitivity test results). No meal was too large and I remained active with chasing the kids around and going on some adventure hikes. So what the heck is going on? I decided to go 100% raw for 30 days (pretty much for the whole month of July)… 1) I want to continuously cleanse without doing strictly juice for 30 days. Eating raw meals will allow for the body to cleanse while keeping me sane for the next 30 days 2) I absolutely love eating 100% raw (in addition to drinking raw cold-pressed juice). It leaves me feeling refreshed! Alive! and full of pure energy! After this trip, we’ll see where the weight is!
Today has been a really good day, aside from my little headache that has been lingering about. I completed a 45 minute HIIT workout that felt GREAT!! I lifted some weights and worked my abs… I was feeling pretty damn good! Not to mention that I had consumed a gallon of water between waking up and my afternoon workout… I am now well on my way to a gallon and three-quarters of water today… let the cleansing continue!!!
I leave for another camping trip in the morning and am writing down all of my raw meals and snacks for the outdoor adventure. So far, I have nori, wakame flakes, chlorella tabs, almonds and fresh fruits and veggies (according to my food sensitivity test results). I was ecstatic when writing down one of my favorite raw meals for the trip and knowing the convenience of putting this meal together, it was prime! But got slapped in the face when I looked at my test results and everything in the meal was everything that I CAN’T have!! Super BOO! Kelp noodles, cayenne pepper, sauerkraut and avocado… all in which are on my severe list with the exception of sauerkraut. boo! boo! boo!!
So!!! this trip will be planned simple, and nutrient dense!!
Here’s my food journal for today:
banana, blueberry and hemp seed bowl. one bag of baby carrots. two handfuls raw almonds. four sheets of raw nori. two large handfuls of chlorella tablets. by the end of the day, two gallons of water. a banana.
My eating has been simple but it has been keeping me satisfied while being busy. So all is good Days 3-7 will be up at camp, so I will share my diet when I return.
