Raw Food Log, 2008, 7/1...

On Tuesday, July 1, 2008...

Breakfast- a 1/2 gallon smoothie of 1 large bunch dandelion greens, 1 medium sized pineapple, 6 Medjool dates

Lunch- 13 Medjool dates, 1 large head Romaine lettuce

Dinner- 7 Medjool dates, a smoothie: 1 large bunch of spinach, 5 Valencia oranges, 1 grapefruit

The dates were not so great addition to the breakfast smoothie but the pineapple didn't taste very sweet and I felt that I needed something else sweet in it to boost my calorie intake.  Unfortunately, the result did not taste fabulous and I don't recommend it.  My cupboard is full of fruit that is not quite ripe yet.

Dinner was after working out at the gym and I felt really hungry.  I thought about having a handful of pecans and a big salad for dinner but I thought about it and I  said to myself, "Stephen, you know that it is nearly impossible for you to eat just one handful of pecans. Just let it go for tonight and make a smoothie." 

That sounded like pretty good advice to me and I listened.  The spinach/orange combination was pretty damn good and I didn't miss the pecans one bit!

Sounds like quite the day of smoothies. You must have been bouncing off the walls!
I've had so much energy I can't keep still!

Hi Stephen,

I love your recipes and have been trying them out. I feel sooooo much better! Were working on a new "raw food recipe" section at www.877myjuicer.com and I would like to add some of your recipes because their some of the best Ive tasted so far. Are there any you would like to recommend to us to list?

Here's to being raw!
