Raw Cleanse

Raw Cleanse

After a particularly gluttonous summer so far, I needed to take it down a few notches with a grain-free cleanse–2 days of raw food and juice. I also wanted to take this opportunity to try out some products that I’ve had on my radar in the grocery store, as a new year of work calls for hearty and healthful sustenance.  Above is everything I ate today.
My Raw Cleanse, Day 1 (left to right):

Raw Revolution Spirulina Dream bar

tsp. organic apple cider vinegar

blk. mineral water

Organic green seedless grapes

Organic Bartlett pear

Organic raw cocoa goji bar

Brad’s Raw Chips: Cheddar with organic kale and raw pepitas hummus

Health-Ade raw kombucha

Organic banana pie (see below)

BluePrint Beet, Apple, Carrot, Lemon, Ginger juice

Organic Mission figs

tsp. organic apple cider vinegar

DSC_0022With my high-speed blender revved up, I made a raw kale hummus and a banana dessert to appease my appetite. The crust of the organic banana pie: raw cashew, an organic raw cocoa goji bar, and organic coconut oil. The banana filling: 2 organic bananas (speckled), raw cashews and agave nectar (The agave nectar was the only non-raw ingredient I ate today.)

I also made the raw kale and pepitas hummus. Day 1, in the bag. I feel great but am craving the pretzel sticks in the pantry a great deal.
