Day 2 of 30 Day Raw Vegan Challenge

Yesterday I made entirely way too much food, so today was almost as delightful as yesterday. So I wasn’t very hungry today. I ran a lot of errands, including looking at a bunch of juicers so I can get back to my fresh daily juice. I will probably buy one tomorrow.

Breakfast – Left over Blueberry Ohs in Banana Milk with Granola. (All recipes I used yesterday.)

Lunch – An entire head of Celery washed and trimmed with my “Guacabouleh” dip. I just couldn’t get enough of it yesterday.














Snack – Beautiful Berry Smoothie.

Berry Smoothie Recipe: About a cup of organic Frozen mix of berries (blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and strawberry) 1 cup water and 1 Cup Organic Tart Cherry Juice. Blend on high to preferred consistency. Drink up!

Dinner – I wasn’t really hungry by the end of the afternoon. So I made a small mixed green salad with the same dressing from yesterday and Cucumber.

Snack – Organic hearts of Romaine and dipped them into guess what??? YES! “Guacabouleh”

Until tomorrow, Mangia!
