Eating Raw All Day Long

Hi Friends,

I hit the gym hard and now I’m paying for it. My body is sore and my lungs feel exercised, that’s the only way I can really explain the sensation. It feels like I ran 10 miles, jumped rope for an hour, and did a spin class. I love this feeling, it means I’m getting stronger.

I spent the rest of the day doing research for next weeks blog posts and relaxing. I made sure to eat mostly raw foods. It was easy at first and became more challenging as my day progressed. I started the day out with overnight oats the recipe is from Oh She Glows and it was scrumptious and satisfying. My after-the-gym snack was a handful of celery, carrots, almond and cashews. I chomped away while preparing a few smoothies. These smoothies were so tasty I sucked them down pretty fast and wasn’t hungry until late afternoon. I got creative and made a raw soup consisting of jalapeños, avocados, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, cayenne peppers, turmeric, romaine lettuce, baby kale, pepper and celtic salt. I was planning on trying this raw alfredo with zucchini past for dinner but the boyfriend treated me to a delicious meal of dim sum.

Hopefully I’ll get a shot at this recipe tomorrow. I’m curious to see if the raw alfredo is comparable to regular alfredo. I’m sure it won’t be buttery and creamy but what will it taste like??? I’m dying to know.
