Day #3 Well......

Posted on July 9, 2013 at 6:03pm 2 Comments

Okay, so I think going 100% raw right at the beginning is a little too much. I will stay mostly raw, probably 70-80%, and the rest of the time it will be cooked/steamed veggies. I just love seasoning things, so it just makes more sense to me at this time just until I get more used to the taste of raw veggies. So, off to the kitchen forum I go! lol

Day #2... Oh, the temptation!

So the second day is a little harder on the first day, it seems.

You'd think with the size Joplin is there would be a better Farmer's Market, but the only one we have is only open on Wednesdays and I work during the week... and the veggies aren't organic! If I had my own car I would just go to the next town over... but I don't so I…

So tomorrow I start my raw veggie cleanse journey thing. I am kind of nervous because this is going to be a big change for me, but I have been researching it for a year now (off and on), and I have finally come to the decision that it might be good for me to at least try it. I'm going to do a 7 day trial run, hopefully more. :) It's going to be a difficult journey, for sure. I love my husband (and he is very supportive), but we just have very different dietary needs, so I'm going to be…
