Day 33: My monthly nonraw day....
afternoon: NON RAW MEAL: this was my cheat day after taking the MPRE. I had half of ted's montana grill hamburger with chedder, bacon, sauted onions on top with french fires and onion rings.
Soon after I felt beyond heavy and lethargic. I actually had to take a nap. I continued to feel prego and exhausted. Poop was normal. But I got winded going up stairs? Mer gave me some enzyme pills to take to help my body digest the food. This day showed me that I definitely want to continue on the raw path.
evening: juice! (cucumber, apple, carrot)
Day 34:morning: 4 cups of that juice!
afternoon: watermelon, grape, "cream cheese" on onion bread with tomato
evening: squash pasta with tomato, onion, mushrooms in ranch style dressing; cheesecake, 1/3 of a cookie, watermelon
Today I developed an intense headache. I believe that the headaches I have been experiencing lately are actually my physical detoxes. I read its common to get headaches when going raw as toxins escape your body. I think that is what happened today, my body trying to rid of my nasty eating yesterday. I actually had the intense headache into the next day of day 35.
To make this cream cheese go to Meredith's rawseed website. She put up a video explaining the process. Trust me, it is well worth making. YUM.
Day 35:morning: cashews
afternoon: 2 "cream cheese" on onion bread with tomatoes and basil; watermelon; cheesecake
evening: eggplant mini pizzas, watermelon
The headache continued for a bit into today. Yuck. Im going to think twice about eating non-raw food once a month. Not sure if it was worth it.
ohhhhhhhhhh so I forgot to mention! I am a proud owner of an excalibur dehydrator! Everything just connected. I remember when I started this 30 day challenge I said that come day 30 I will make a decision whether I will continue on this path and if I do I will buy a dehydrator. So basically on Day 30 I got a message from a guy who said that he was selling his! Its the 9 tray brand new model at a good price, used only once. Hell yeah!! The forces have brought me to the deydrator, hinting that I must continue!
So today was my big day playing with it. I had an eggplant to use so I looked up some eggplant receipes. So I made the eggplant mini pizzas! I took the recipes off of goneraw.
2 Eggplants, sliced in rounds 1/4 - 1/2 in. thick
2 cup Tomatoes, Chopped/sliced
¼ cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoon Basil, chopped
1 clove Garlic, minced/pressed
¼ cup Onions, chopped
2 tablespoon Oregano, dried
- Topping: In a bowl, mix all ingredients except the Eggplant.
- Spoon topping onto eggplant rounds, and dehydrate at 118 (or desired temp) untill eggplant becomes crispy around the edges (about 8-12 hours.)
I only used one eggplant though but kept the ingredients the same. It was actually pretty good. I left it in the dehydrator for about 8 hours. Wasnt sure how crunchy it should have been.
I also made some strawberry raw ice cream! Its in the freezer but Ill report on the taste tomorrow. Im also attempting to make some potato chips. Will report.
