You might be wondering how it's going since I only mentioned it a gajillion times.
Let's start from the beginning.
It started with a couple days of prep.
You know, cutting out sugar, caffeine, alcohol, etc.
Since I have a lot of experience with raw foods it was more fun than challenge.
Though you know I love a good challenge.

There was alot of avocado snacking to curb other cravings.
I just cut it half, pour a little balsamic vinegar in the pit, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
It even comes in it's own dish.

I even made my own fruit leather.
I just blended some strawberries and dehydrated them.
The first time I dried it too long. 
It still tasted great but it was a little crispy.
The second batch came out much better.

Since we were getting all raw foodie up in here I also made some raw chocolate pudding (not for me though I did lick the spoon a few times).
Let's just say it was a hit.
Recipe from here.

Anyhoo, the first day was bit difficult. 
You don't realize how connected to solid food you are until you cut it out.
I have been having a very small all raw vegan meal in the evenings.
It's the only way I can make it through. 
The first night was a salad of romaine, cucumber, tomato, and blueberries.
The second night was guacamole in romaine wraps with tomatoes, a few chopped scallions, a light sprinkle of hemp seeds, and I couldn't resist more blueberries.
Other than that it's been water, fresh veggie juice, 
a small smoothie (about 6 oz.), and coconut water.
My hope is that I can cut out the evening meal at some point but if I don't I won't beat myself up about it.
I'm still detoxing and feeling awesome.
I'm also still participating in the 30 day Yoga challenge as well.
I've been pretty good at getting to a class or getting on my mat at home.
Yes, I have missed a few days.
I'm only human after all.
Life happens.

Day 3 and only 7 more to go.

Also wanted to share this little gem that I found through Soulemama.
It's a great way to start a new day.


  1. jamie, loved this little peek! once the fast is over, i can't wait to try that avocado with balsamic vinegar and salt...sounds delish!

    1. Oh you should! It really helps when your trying to avoid other temptations. It's hardly a compromise especially if you're an avocado lover. And the balsamic really brings it to a new level.
