Raw Food Day 9

leave a comment »

All I’m gonna say tonight is the raw Carrot-Lime Tart at Eden Alley was amazing. Really. This was only my second experience with a raw dessert and the first was not very good. But I could eat that tart every day! You should try it sometime, it’s especially suited for the warmer weather. Cheers.

Breakfast: apple, raw almond butter.

Raw Food Day 8

leave a comment »

I’m surprised by how easy this diet has become. I don’t even think of it as a diet anymore, except for the fact that I’m keeping track of everything I eat. Last night I weighed myself and found that I’ve lost 3 lbs since last week. I knew I had lost something because this week I’ve been wearing pants I haven’t been able to fit in for eight or nine months. That’s exciting. So exciting, in fact, I decided to celebrate with wine at band practice.

Breakfast: banana, raw almond butter (my two faithful readers will notice this is the same picture as the day before. Believe me, it looked the same, I just forgot to snap a shot).
