My last meal.
I had some coconut meat that I froze from the 31 day fruit feast. I made ceviche a couple of days with some of it.
It was amazing!
I decided to used the rest of the coconut meat to make an alfredo sauce. I blended:
- Coconut meat
- The scraps from 3 spiralized zucchini
- Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
- 2 garlic cloves
- Nutritional yeast
- Italian seasoning
- Ground black pepper
- Pink Himalayan salt
I sprinkled basil and more ground black pepper on after adding the sauce to the zoodles.
This smelled so good.
Why is this my last meal? I’m going to be juicing for rest of this month.
Although I’ve been enjoying my zoodle dishes,
I have really overdone it on fat and salt and it’s taking a toll on my body and I need a reset before things get out of hand.
I introduced fats too soon back into my diet. As for salt, I really had no intention of eating salt of any kind again. I was going to invest in salt alternatives like dulse. Also I’ve been adding olives, hearts of palm and even capers to my zoodles. I know I know not a good idea. My body has let me know it’s not happy with my latest food choices.
My feet are swollen 😢
I made some mistakes coming off the fruit feast. I need to reset my system and start over. There are other reasons for me juicing the rest of the month.
- To refocus. I’m going through a few transitions in my life and I am stressing over them. I may be moving to a new position at work and I’m moving to a new place. Which brings me to number two.
- To save money. I find that it is easier to stay on budget when I’m juicing. I know what I need to buy and where to get the best prices.
- To simplify. The whole process of juicing is simple and straightforward
I could just cut fat and salt from my diet and continue my raw vegan journey. To be honest, with everything that’s going on, I don’t want to think about eating right now.
Plus I am packing for my move and I don’t want to have a lot of appliances and utensils that I have to pack last minute.
I will also be rebounding during this juice cleanse to help get my lymphatic system moving.

I started the day with black mission figs and a Chinese melon. It was my first time having both.
The figs were hit or miss. Some of them had a rich maple syrup flavor and some had no flavor at all. I noticed the ones with flavor had syrup coming out of them so I guess that is an indication of their ripeness.
The melon has a light refreshing taste. Like a cross between a sweet cucumber and celery. Out of the two fruits, I liked the melon the best.
I am spending the weekend at a hotel so I made sure I stocked the mini fridge with plenty of fruit.
I even snuck in some frozen durian.
Speaking of durian, I’ve had it every day since Wednesday (fruit feast day 8). I love it but I’m going to leave it alone for the rest of the fruit feast.
As I’ve stated before I started the fruit feast to reintroduce solid food after being on a juice cleanse for 114 days. I didn’t have any fat during that time and I think my obsession with durian may have to do with the fat content. Not that I think that is a bad thing but I wanted to reintroduce one thing at a time so I’m going to stick with high water content fruits.
I can tell there’s a difference in my digestion since I’ve been eating so much durian. It’s slower and I can feel what I eat sitting on my side while it’s digesting.
I’m ending the day with my boo, papaya. I’m going to be eating more papayas and watermelon to get my digestion back on track.
I ordered a rebounder and I’m excited to start using it and reaping the benefits. Once I receive it, I will blog about my first impression.
