Fruit feast day 23 #IKHLW

Mango coconut water smoothie to start the day. For lunch I had cantaloupe and passion fruit which is becoming one of my favorite combinations. When you’re down to the last spoonful of durian and you just want to cherish the moment. I ended the day with my boo. I’ve done a lot of going back…

Fruit feast day 22  #IKHLW

If it’s not broken don’t fix it. I’m sticking with my mango coconut water smoothie in the morning. For lunch I had dragon fruit. It was the white flesh dragon fruit but I paid for red flesh dragon fruits which is a dollar difference per pound. I prefer the red over the white flesh. That…

Fruit feast day 21 #IKHLW

I’ve got the blues but I ain’t sad. I made a blueberry coconut water smoothie and a bowl of blueberries to snack on.  Ok the smoothie was bad, the berries turned to a thick mush and the flavor didn’t mesh with the coconut water. I couldn’t drink it. My first mind told me to use…

Fruit feast day 20 #IKHLW

Today was a busy day. I had to take a test this morning for a position I applied for. Then I had to take my daughter to an appointment. I started the day with my mango coconut water smoothie but I only had one good mango so I added a banana to my smoothie. It…

When you get the “stop losing weight” comment #IKHLW

Since I started my juice cleanse November 5, 2016-today March 19, 2017 I have lost 61 pounds and have gone from 206lbs to 145lbs.  As I’ve stated before I didn’t start on this journey for weight loss, I started it to improve my digestion, break food addictions and to feel better. The weight loss as…

Fruit feast day 19 #IKHLW

Lazy Sunday. I was all prepared to eat on this all day. But when I opened it, it was mushy inside. It smelled ok so I decided to juice it. I added a container of strawberries, 3 lemons and one lime to the juice. I got three 32oz mason jars of juice. So lazy Sunday…

Fruit feast day 18 #IKHLW

This is going to be short and sweet. I had my mango coconut water smoothie in the morning. This is how it went down for lunch, me durian and Steely Dan’s greatest hits. Later I had one of the papayas I got at the Asian market yesterday. Is it just me that hears the angels…

Fruit feast day 17: mission jackfruit #IKHLW

I started the day with a green apple juice  It was very good and filling. I think I’m going to start my mornings with this juice. I followed with my mango coconut water smoothie. For lunch I had half of a watermelon that I cut up and put in two containers (I forgot to take…

Fruit feast day 16 (part2)

I feel the need to clarify something from part 1 of this post. The nutritional information I posted was for a whole durian fruit. The very first time I had durian it was the whole fruit. Since then I’ve been eating frozen vacuum sealed durian that usually contain two pods. I made my mango coconut…

Fruit feast day 16 (part 1)

Fifteen days into the fruit feast and I need a reset. The goal of me starting the fruit feast is to transition to a raw vegan lifestyle. In order for me to make the transition, I need to focus more on what a typical day would look like. I’ve had so much fun trying new…

Fruit feast day 15 #IKHLW

A jackfruit smoothie is how I started my day. I snacked in some tamarind I bought yesterday when I was hungry. I like tamarind but only in small doses. It’s too sweet for me. I ended up sharing most of it with my coworkers. I bought a new variety of papaya at my local Latin grocery…

Fruit feast day 14 #IKHLW

Today was a much better fruit day than yesterday. I started the day with a coconut water jackfruit smoothie. For lunch I had my boo, papaya. It was ripe and juicy. I had two Chinese melons for a snack. I was out running errands and I got hungry. I’ve been advised that you should always…
