cheers to 7 days of raw goodness
I'm coming out of my frump slump. Remember a week or so ago, when I told you I was feeling puffy, sluggish and well, generally just not summer-ready? Well, I am charting a new course. It took stepping back and prioritizing feeling good. I am far from there yet, but I'm on my way. For me, it took signing up for The Nutrition Mom's "Renew" cleanse, just so I had some accountability and support as I embarked on this about face. Hers was a good jumping off point for me, and it's made me excited to compile a new binder full of super healthy, and in some cases, raw recipes. For the next 7 days, as part of The Nutrition Mom's program, I am whipping up raw meals. Of course, this won't be a perfect science... in many cases my raw main might be the kids side dish. But, I am excited to make it a healthy, delicious week ahead. I'll post a few highlights this week, and who knows, maybe one or two of these raw recipes will catch your eye, you'll give them try, and they'll become a part of your "normal" recipe rotation.
p.s. this morning's green smoothie (pictured above): 2 bananas + 1/2 cup mango + 1/2 cup green grapes + a few hearty handfuls of spinach + 2 cups of water + the juice of one lemon... bright green deliciousness
