keep up the fantastic work.


Thanks! :D

Oh, yeah...I didn't make note of it, but I've been putting flaxseed (along with caraway seed) into my bowls of soup. :)

lol. :lol: Well, any more greens then I've started getting, and I may be stuck only on soup for the rest of the month. :wink: Don't worry, once we move to Washington, we will hopefully start adding lots more fresh raw fruits and veggies! :D

I have to say, I think I'm adjusting to this new diet really well! Though I have to admit, I had guilty temptations when we went to the store tonight, and stared and drooled at the chocolate Hershey's bars (along with my husband, too)! :psycho: I was like..."Oh geez, I miss these!" and then started feeling that maybe we should get out of the candy isle! :lol: In the long run, I'm sure I'll realize that I'm much better without the chocolate and that it's just doing more harm to me. Hmmm...speaking of which, I hope we can get some raw carob powder soon! *drools* :lol:

Oh, trust me, I am definitely enjoying them! I love my peaches! Oh, and my apples, and nectarines, and watermelon, and...and...heck, I love just about ALL fruits! (Or at least the ones I've tried so far!) :lol: If I've gotta climb the highest hill or go the farthest distance for my sweet delectable fruits, I'm already there! :boxer:

I tried sprouts before. Some types I couldn't stand, but there were two I liked, broccoli sprouts and alfalfa sprouts. :D

I got a few more boxes packed today. (Wow, and so much more left to do before the big move! :shock: ) XD

I started feeling kinda sick the past few days, with a sore throat and such. I'm holding off on the salads for now, as it's easier on my throat to consume softer and less fibrous foods (even though I may really need the fiber). We'll see how things go, though.

i wouldn't say you need the greens for fiber but they contain a whole lot of other essential nutrients. i totally understand that you don't eat it when you're feeling sick. most people (including myself) use their temporary illness as an excuse not to maintain their diet plan and just eat really unhealthy food. you should be really proud of yourself for not doing the same.

mmmmmmmmmm... broccoli sprouts are SUPER good for you.
They contain over 1,000 the nutrient content of broccoli itself (I believe) :D
Sprouts are definitely powerhouses.
But it's probably better to just grow your own.. than buy them, because
of bacterial content and traveling long distances.



Great job girl!
I hope you've had time to rummage thru Angela Stokes website a bit. :wink:

Also, where in Washington are you moving to???

I am primarily in Oregon these days, but am usually in Washington
at least once per month, we could have raw vegan potlucks!
I know a number of raw vegans in Washington, and they have a
great networking community in the Seattle area :D :D

Yeah, I know the nutrients are important too. lol.

Thanks! I almost wanted to just go on a fast or only have soup broth, but my husband encouraged me to try to get some food in me. lol. :lol:

Yeah, I may see about growing my own broccoli sprouts. Besides, they're not cheap at the store, and only come in small little packets. I'll look into growing some once we get situated up in Washington, though. :D

I've been through her website a bit. I definitely saved it on my favorites list to return to later, though! :wink:

And we'll be moving to Sequim, Washington (which is in the Olympic Penninsula region). My husband just heard from his friend up there, and he claims the nearest co-op is 5 miles away from where we'll be! I was like "Yeah! Great walking distance! I'm game!" :D :lol:

That sounds nice! Yeah, just so you let us get settled in up there first. :wink: lol. Oh, and after we get through our fasting, of course! (We're going to do a short fast down here next month, then a longer fast up there within the first month or two of getting there, as we've been doing some thinking and talking and believe we should definitely do some fasting.) :D Ooh, ooh, you do? Wow! It's like we were meant to go there! Wooh! Go, raw vegans! You gonna introduce me to them? lol. :)

July 25, 2008

Breakfast: nothing :cry: (aparrently our juicer broke down on us, and only after about 2 or 3 months of owning it! Grrrr! :evil: Anyone know of a good replacement? We need a juicer that won't easily break down after such a short usage time. I guess that's what we get for buying cheap! :cry: )
Lunch: lentils and veggie soup, with homemade naan bread
Dinner: lentils and veggie soup
Snack: sunflower seeds
Snack: 1 apple
Snack: 1 peach

Ugh! My period started today (after missing a month), so I'm feeling terrible and have aweful cramps. Nope, NO exercise today! I stayed in bed all day and only got up to eat, drink, and go to the bathroom. I hope it doesn't last too long this time. :zwangsjacke:

I'm still feeling horrible like yesterday. I got up at 10 am, but then went back to sleep, and woke up again at 4 pm (so didn't have anything for Breakfast and Lunch, since I was sleeping). I still don't feel well. So, NO exercise again today! Also, since I'm not feeling so well and my husband developed a fever (he's been sick since this morning), we couldn't go buy anymore fruit yet today (so we're out of fruit until we feel better and can go buy more). :zwangsjacke:
