Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

As always....32 oz of water upon arising (I had just enough left over from yesterday's goji lemon).

As I made the early rounds in the Unit, I enjoyed My Morning Tea - Bosphorus Blend has pistachios, cumin, almond pieces, coriander, apples, pineapple & tea leaves. Available at http://thegivingteasproject.com

Before I went to the gym for a lunch time cardio BLAST, I delighted in 24 oz. of Exotica - juiced pineapple, cilantro blended with the water of one young coconut.

After my 1 1/2 hour pummeling by "Booty Camp Girl" I was ready for something to lift my spirits and quench my thirst. This Afternoon Delight of juiced oranges, blueberries - blended with fresh almond milk, was the perfect post workout refueling:

My pattern so far this week, is that I brewed some tea in the late afternoon to help me with whatever that nagging feeling is that seems to come over me. It's not really hunger, it is just something else....I hope to figure out what is so I can share it with you, but the tea really helps. Today I enjoyed Amalfi Dreams -- fair trade certified green rooibos, blood orange peels, spearmint & apple:

Then today's grand finale was 32 oz. of Green Gratitude -
carrots, celery, tomato, cilantro, cucumber, lime, jalapeno, apple cider vinegar & fresh cracked pepper:

Another wonderful day....in my past experience Day 3 or 4 on juice seemed to be the getting over the hump point. I think if I can drink juice for 3 days, I can certainly do it for several more. I feel extremely clearheaded and hopeful about the whole of life. Can't ask for more than that!

Blessings & I hope you had a great day wherever you are!

I brew tea in the regular fashion. I don't usually boil the water, but it's plenty hot.

Thanks Penni for sharing your day. I also have teas from http://thegivingteasproject.com, right now my favorite is key lime. I made juice with mustard greens for today, I have in the fridge here at work. I don't think it is going to go down well!

mmmm... love reading about and seeing all the delectable stuff you eat and drink... thank you! Question Penni: do you brew the tea in the regular non-raw way, or do you stick it in the dehydrator to 'warm' it up? Just curious!

Have a lovely rest!
