Going Raw – Day 11

I’m happy to say that both sprouted buckwheat and sprouted quinoa agree with me. I had really counted on and spent a lot of money on the raw nuts for this month and I am sorry I can’t use them. Many of the recipes I come across use nuts or lemon. Usually I can substitute sunflower seeds and I have been using balsamic vinegar in the salad dressings. I am about 1/3 of the way through the month now. Today my energy level was quite good. I saw patients this morning, then went to Science Rendezvous and the library this afternoon with my daughter, then to see a movie this evening. Typically, I would have taken a nap in the afternoon and then done one thing with her, not three! Digestion was great today, and aches anywhere else hardly noticeable. I was around ice cream and popcorn today, but did not really feel tempted. I haven’t had any cravings for some time now. I am thinking quite happily about canned sardines and sweet potatoes though, and will be glad to eat them in June! Here’s what I ate today:

Breakfast;

Buckwheat pancakes – sprouted buckwheat, apple, cinammon with a sprinkle of agave

Lunch:

Leftover vegan sushi with carrot sticks
Salad of spinach, apple, date, pumpkin seeds

Snack:

Pancake from breakfast

Supper:

Sprouted quinoa salad with lettuce, cucumber and dressing made of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh dill, garlic, agave and ginger
Flax crackers spread with coconut oil

Snack:

Balls made from dates, sunflower seeds, coconut, cocoa, vanilla extract
