I had my first "big" solid food meal in 88 days. It was stupendous! A wonderful salad made with 2/3rds lb of spinach, carrot, tomatos, cucumber and fresh corn. It was soooo good I ate about 99% of it. I'm still a little groggy actually but very happy that I finally ate some real solid food. My weight and stats this morning were stable and I thought for sure I'd be gaining 4 lbs just from that salad. LOL
I started drinking my V6 green juice again and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. It's that good! I'm still making my Ambrosia juice but I'll start adding more and more blended fruit with the orange juice base so that in a week it will be an Ambrosia smoothie. Baby steps.
In my banana smoothie I put an entire pack of frozen Acai berry. That's about 4 ozs. I used 2 bananas and some water with it. Too much acai for sure. I'm having problems finding ripe bananas in the market. I bought a case to control the supply of ripe ones for my needs and they aren't ripe yet either. I'm picking up another case tomorrow to stay ahead of the game a bit. I think one of the main challenges to this lifestyle is RIPE fruit.
Most of the fruit sold and eaten isn't ripe. Then people say it's the fruit that they are having problems digesting. Gesh! The organic grocers can help by educating people openly above the fruit area on what is a really ripe piece of the particular fruit. I have some pull with the co-op produce dept and I'm going to suggest this to them this weekend.
Today and tomorrow I am preparing Thank You celebration luncheons for some friends of mine. They have truly supported my journey to health and my 92 day juice feast. You MUST get home-front support when you change your diet. You can't do it alone and you can't get that kind of support on-line. It's made a world of difference in my life. Actually support is why I have a mentoring business. People need hand-holding and guidance as well as education to successfully transition their eating program. My support is a tangible asset.
Time to start preparing the food for the day. Carb up!
