Today is the first day of Lent, I remember Lent as a kid, it was something we would do every single year. I can’t even remember the last time I did it. So this year I will start it up again but instead of giving something up for 40 days, I want to improve on something. I want to focus my meals more around vegetables.

 

Breakfast: Apple and Banana Berry Yogurt Smoothie

Lunch: Giant Caesar Salad

Snack: Dark Chocolate Mini Eggs and a carrot

Well there was a little afternoon excitement for me today, attempting to make some buns and cinnamon buns, I was using a couple different kinds of flour I have in the cupboard to use it all up. I opened one bag (was previously opened), And there was like a million bugs crawling around in it. I almost puked! I was so grossed out and thoroughly checked everything else, but that was the only rotten bag, thank god!  Fortunately there is no pictures, I wouldn’t put you through that.

FAIL! Buns were a flop, they were all grainy and blah. Sucks to be me.

Supper: Pike filet with dill butter sauce and dry curd cottage cheese and broccoli

Evening Snack: apple, Vanilla Coconut Chia pudding, and an orange.

 

Are you giving up anything for Lent? Or are you improving on something instead?

I am excited about making Raw Juices with my juicer and using my new book the big book of juices. There are some good detox juices and smoothies in there that I will be trying. I want to start to practice yoga with my beginners yoga DVD.

What I want to do to get Healthy:

Do my best to eat High Raw and Vegan, and if I don’t I will not beat myself up over it.

One juice a day.

One smoothie a day.

Here is one day of me focusing on eating right, this is what I want to obtain in the long run and do on a regular basis. But remember it takes time, and it definitely helps if you get as much support as possible. If everyone around you in not eating healthy and not supporting you of your choices, things will be much more difficult. So it’s best to let people know what your plan is, and hopefully they will join in or at least make an effort to help you out in your journey.

Breakfast: Capple Kiwi juice made in the juicer (from the big book of juices), which consisted of 3 carrots, 1 apple and 2 kiwis.

Eating raw until supper was easy and I didn’t feel the need to snack a lot today, my stomach seemed satisfied with what I ate. I have had a migraine most of the evening. My body is getting used to eating right and it is just having a little bit of withdrawal I think. Christmas sabotaged my eating habits and my body needs a little time to adjust.

Best of luck in your journey!
