Day 20: Raw Food Challenge

Over this Hump day!  Day 20 done!!!  Today's breakfast was a smoothie.  Much better than yesterday's smoothie.  Mango, strawberries. banana and almond milk.  Nothing different there.  I kinda feel that I need to switch up on my breakfast.  Not yet bored with the smoothie but I feel that when it is cold outside I'm not sure if I will want and ice cold smoothie...we will see!

Lunch was pretty good but not as good as my co-workers eating kale salad and loving it!!!!

They, like me, thought that kale salad would be tough, bitter and hard to chew.  But once they tasted it they loved it.  Tonight I made a bowl for the friend on the right to give to her vegetarian beau.  I didn't have kale for lunch today. Had spinach salad...

Drank plenty of water with lemons today.  Didn't have the desire to snack on my almonds today.  Just wasn't hungry.  Amazed at how satisfying this food is.  Couldn't wait to get home to eat the mushrooms and tomatoes that had been marinating since last night in the olive oil and fresh basil...

On the plate is guacamole stuffed tomatoes, carrots, and the veggies that were marinating.  All delicious!!!

So, as I end my 20th day, I am wondering if by tomorrow if this will be a habit.   I kinda feel like this is the lifestyle that I have chosen.  I don't want to go back to the way that I was feeling before this challenge began.  I think that the only way to do that is to keep this going.  I will integrate some things back into my diet.  I will be very careful about what those things are.  There is no food that is worth losing this feeling.  20 days down, 10 days to go!!!!!!!


  1. I truly admire that you took on this challenge. The food looks delicious!

  2. Thanks! It no longer feels like a challenge to me...I'm gonna keep up with this lifestyle. I actually feel too good to go back to my old way of living.

    Thanks for reading!
