Raw Date 2010, 5/22,  Saturday...

Breakfast- 64 oz green smoothie (1 head Frisee lettuce, 6 large bananas, a handful of strawberries, a handful of blueberries, 2 cups cold water)

Lunch- 4 Champagne Mangoes

Dinner- 24 oz Fruit smoothie (home made with strawberries, banana, pineapple, orange)

Like Dr. Graham's calendar quote suggests, I'm laughing at myself this morning.  Why did I put Blueberries in the smoothie when I know from experience that blueberries in smoothies are a disaster?  There is a lot of beautiful fresh fruit in my apartment and I guess I just got carried away.  The flavor was okay, but don't do what I did this morning.  Blueberries are high in pectin, and that is not a bad thing, but they turn a smoothie into a gelatinous semi solid mass that has to be eaten with a spoon.  Its not pretty. 

Its a natural law that red mixed with green results in brown.  The red strawberries, mixed with the green lettuce and the blue berries resulted in a brownish green gray color -not very appetizing.  It became very filling very quickly and I had to force myself to eat all of it, something I try not to do.  I only forced myself because I didn't eat very much yesterday and since today is Saturday, I don't want to try to have a active day not being fully fueled.  I also don't want to slip into a habit of under eating.
