No, really, it did!
It was the Schwan's ice cream truck (sure,they sell food too, but we all know them for their treats)! I resisted...but I did get their catalog for when they're back in two weeks. I'll be ready for fudge ripple and that grasshopper pie. Despite the ice cream craving, I really am enjoying this Raw challenge.
I'm not sure if it's the raw food, or just the fun of this project, but I am full of energy today! I've been up since 5am and haven't stopped getting things done- some "need to" and some "want to"s.
I started out my day with a bowl of oats in almond milk with grated apple, dried cranberries, and a dash of nutmeg. It was delicious....and much healthier than my skipping of breakfast all together. ( Normally, I am asleep during those hours)
Next, I put the oven on low and made some kale chips for snacking. These are great! I'm sure I'll make these again after my raw adventure, but with the oven turned up higher for faster cooking. At only 110 degrees it took about 2 hours to get them crispy. Well worth the wait though.
Dinner was a simple salad with red onions and mushrooms marinated in tamari soy sauce, red wine vinegar, and sesame oil.
For dessert I tried a berry "ice cream" from the book. I tried half of it just refrigerated and the other half frozen---both were good. Served it with kiwis and bananas. The recipe has it served over bananas with a chocolate sauce, but I didn't buy any raw cocoa for the challenge, so went without this time.
I am curious to see how only eating raw this week will effect me and my body, if at all. A week isn't very long, I know. So, is today's great mood and energy from my diet or just a random good day?
Either way, it's all good.
Wishing you all wonderful days!!
