30 Bananas a Day!

Yesterday went quite well! I am having troubles with SEASONAL ALLERGIES! I am sneezing and have a lot of congestion. I didn't get any allergies last year. However, my son and I have been taking frequent trips to the park. Last night I woke up a  couple of times due to congestion. Boo! Here is what I had yesterday to eat:

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

Lunch - Golden delicious/granny smith apples

Snack - Fresh pulpy OJ

Dinner - Celery apple date salad


1.5 hour belly dance class plus playing with my son


Last night I went to bed at about 1015PM. Woke up at 445AM to help my husband. Went back to bed at 6AM and stayed in bed until almost 10PM. Wow! (Took a benadryl at 6).


Drank only a few glasses of water. Peed 5 times maybe. Eliminated like a champ - even tried squatting. I find squatting to be a bit splashy - not sure if I like that.

Side effects/detox:


Eczema on hands seems to be clearing up. Not itchy at the moment.

Face clearing up nicely despite using mostly water and a bit of lotion only. Digestion wonderful. Feeling light. Energy good!

Emotions in control *despite period!


I am feeling a bit stressed as I am trying to turn in paperwork for my job which starts in July. I have to rely on others to fill out some forms and they are dragging their feet! UGH! I plan to meditate today...

I didn't drink enough water yesterday- I will try to increase that today. My mangoes are finally ripe! So excited to eat those with my apple lunch. I won't be taking any allergy medication today. Anybody have any suggestions?

About to enjoy my delicious shake, and then off to the park with my son! Thanks for reading! xxxxxx

They now have vegan Vitamin D3 made from lichen.

When they fortify the almond mylk, do you know how much you are getting as far as vit.D and B12? Probably not. Would not be safer and more simple to just put water in the smoothie with your fave fruit/veggies and buy a good quality vit.D and b12 supplement? That would be my suggestion.
Vit. D3 is not vegan, but it is what our bodies use the easiest. Vit. D2 is vegan, and the research is not conclusive yet as its conversion rate. Vit B 12 has many forms, the best are hydroxocobalamin and methylcobalamin. Often companies when they fortify a food product, they will use the much inferior and potentially harmful form, cyanocobalamin. Your longterm health is worth to look on the packaging, for sure.
I make my own almond mylk from organic raw almonds, by first soaking them 24 hrs, then blending them with clean water, and finally straining them through a mesh bag. When you read the ingredients of the almond mylk, and if it does not say filtered water, they most likely use tap water. Not a nice option. That is why I always make my own.
Have fun, focus on the seasonal fruits.

@ Greenmama! Thank you as always for the love!

@ Iron clad ben - I def need to do better with the water. Thanks for the encouragement.

@ Yogaranka - I definitely agree with you - I want to cut out/down the almond milk but am nervous because it is fortified with B12, D and calcium. Any advice would be great.

If you are sneezing a lot from pollen, you might want to go easy on hemp, almond milk, especially first thing in the morning. But of course, if that is what pleases your schedule, go for it, but I noticed that a lighter breakfast with more fruit and no fat gives a clear start. Hang in there!

Hugs and more hugs!

Thank you Greenmama ---

I was wondering if allergies = detox. I suffered allergies as a teenager and then they sort of went away. But are hitting me full force right now. I feel like I could just go to bed and sleep right now. I feel dull, nose is running and I am sneezing. I also had a small period of irritability which passed quickly after I ate more and more carbs. My body is probably also getting used to no coffee. No meds for me!

Don't worry... it's just detox.  It won't be permanent.  Most people's "allergies" disappear on this lifestyle... eliminating dairy and other toxic substances will reduce the body's inflammation and over-reaction to things like pollen.  You are doing awesome!  Just lie in bed and rest when you are feeling ill.  Putting in medication just stops the detoxification process by adding a toxic substance.  Let the process finish (I know, no fun!) and you won't have to suffer the back and forth of detox/ re-tox.


And I saw you did some belly dance.  Your fave, right?  Woo hoo!
