A great way to stay on track is to make a few extra smoothies so you can take them on the go...


Day 1: Mostly Raw food challenge 

It's about that time again, I need to cleanse my body. I wanted to do this right after I finished my radiation treatments but I was just too tired, physically as well as mentally. But I am now about 6 weeks out from my last treatment. I'm still mentally tired but I am not physically tired. So I'm going to do the push and do a 10 day cleanse. 

What will my cleanse guidelines be? 
Good question. I'm going back to basics... Mostly smoothies. They are easy. And I also plan to do mostly all raw. So when time permits I'm going to include salads or make some fun raw things from this site. I plan to include 1 vegan meal a day. That will be in the evening. It's cold here right now so I need that warmth and I do love food so that will be my treat each evening. 

How will I accomplish this? 
Another good question... I'm planning everything out. So far I have 2 days planned. And I have my smoothies all planned out. I'm going to keep it basic by drinking 2 different smoothies several times a day. I like the taste of both and if I keep it simple, so a little boring, I can keep it up. 

I also plan to make more than one smoothie at a time. That way I can store the extra smoothie in the fridge and it's ready to drink whenever. Or if I'm on the go I can just take the smoothie with me as a snack to keep me from grabbing a bad snack while running errands. 

I'm feeling pretty good about this. Last time I did this was when I found out about the cancer and within a week I felt amazing!! My blood count was high & my blood was super rich. So  I'm hoping that this raw smoothie cleanse will give me the jump start I need. I'm hoping it helps my back heal faster and cleanses my back of all that radiation. I want to be thinking more clearly.. I feel like I've been in a bit of a fog. 

So follow me on my 10 day journey... It should be fun!!

Sure... I plan on posting the recipe tomorrow... I made it up the other day when I thought I didn;t have anything to put in a smoothie to make it taste good. LOL and Voila... I made something we really liked. Kale, Coconut oil, Almond Milk, Dates, Bananas, Water, Frozen peas, Vanilla, juice form 1 lemon... I really like it and I think if you add coco powder a chocolate shake will be in your future... YAY!!!
