I've decided that every Thursday, I'm going to go completely raw. I've already done this two Thursdays in a row and am feeling pretty proud of myself. Of course, it does help to be spending most of my waking hours at a restaurant where pure juices and fresh salads are our speciality. ;)
I started this mainly with the intention to get my creative juices flowing so I can delve deeper into making more raw foods. As a friend of mine who went raw for 21 days told me, the best way to push yourself to come up with more raw foods is to go raw yourself.
Though I currently don't think I have the will power or inclination to do this strictly for even one week, leave alone three, in a row, I believe once a week could be quite easy to keep up. :)
Though I haven't been hit with any sudden inspirations to create fancy, raw dishes, there are so many cool little things I've already learnt about how my body and my mind work. I'm sure that as I keep going, I'll have a few interesting ideas for raw dishes.
And while I'm on this journey, I'm hoping to find a bit of time to share some recipes here with you all.
Here's one for a fantastic, power packed smoothie I made myself for breakfast yesterday. It was amazing how it kept me going for a few hours!
Try it yourself and enjoy! :)
