30 Bananas a Day!

This has to be fast because I MUST get ready for bed! I am extremely proud of myself. Again, I was able to avoid coffee and cooked junk foods.

Breakfast - Banana shake (carob powder, hemp seeds and almond milk)

Lunch - Pink lady apples

Snack - Fresh OJ

Dinner - Celery apple and grape salad

I have not been keeping track of my calories on the cronometer! I keep track of calories in my head. I make sure to only include a bit of overt fats. In this case --- I use a small portion in my smoothie. At any rate I am satisfied after breakfast. I became pretty hungry at 2PM, wishing I had more apples with me. However, the orange juice seems to fill me up and take away the hunger pangs. My salads are always great. So I need to work on my afternoon meals only.

Elimination: Like a champ (#2)! Did not pee enough although my pee was quite clear. I need need need to drink additional water. That is my goal!

Exercise: Chased my little one at the park.

Side effects:

Still have a bit of eczema on my hands, all though it is less noticeable through the day. I woke up in the morning with the taste of onions in my mouth despite brushing well the night before. The onion taste seems to stick when I am eating raw. Otherwise, no physical changes!

I had lots of feelings of anger swirling in me today, but no desire to eat junk to feel better. I think this is a step in the right direction!!!! WOOT! I believe I am facing hurts/troubles/feelings I suppress routinely. (????)

Overall: I feel good about the day. I want to eat more during the day and drink some water! I want to start a daily meditation/prayer period tommorow morning. We will see if I can get up! Ha!

Fat and sweet fruit is not a very good combo for your digestion.  I'd sprinkle your hemp seeds on a green salad at the end of the day.  I like them, but don't buy them much because they are expensive compared to avocado or raw tahini.

Ah, I see. I'm not really bothered with EFAs. If you have a look at this:
you'll see that by only eating the literal 30bads and some spinach, one's already met 70% of both omega 3 and 6. But keep in mind that I edited the minmal omega 6 requirements following recommendations on here, they are much higher on default. So I can see why you might wanna keep it on the safe side by adding seeds.

@ Marco - Thanks for reading.

My morning shake packs a lot of calories for the day due to the bananas. However, I am not a huge fan of the banana taste right now (well in such a large quantity). Raw carob powder is listed in Freelee's e book in a certain recipe --- so I figure it is okay. Tastes yummy :-D

Hemp seeds are a great source of EFAs. I will use them up as I have them on hand. May or may not buy them again. What are your thoughts about hemp seeds?

Aside from these little additions I try to stick to straight fruits/vegetables.

Cronometer is not really necessary for cals, but for minerals and vitamins and that stuff. Also, what's with the carob and hemp?
