The allergies or cold I have been suffering from have given me a tickle in my throat. Drinking cold beverages makes it worse. So I haven't done many smoothies although I have been 100 percent raw and vegan since Saturday and it feels good and peaceful. I've been eating lots of bananas.
I think it's important to listen to our bodies. My body seems to want whole fruits instead of smoothies at the moment. The fruit is very satisfying. Yesterday I shared a pineapple with my boyfriend.
