Confession #IKHLW

There was another reason I decided to go back to juicing that I didn’t mention in my last post. I gained two pounds. It was excess water weight from all the salt I was consuming.  After recently losing over 61 pounds. I find myself freaking out over the slightest bit of weight gain (even though…

My last meal #IKHLW

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…

31 Day fruit feast recap #IKHLW

Looking back on the past 31 days, I am happy I participated and I plan to eat a mostly fruitarian diet. There are a few things I wish I would have done differently. I would have started the day with a juice. When I started the fruit feast I had just come off of a…

Fruit feast day 30 #IKHLW 

Today was simple. I started the day with fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice. For lunch I tried to eat the papaya but it was hard inside. I don’t know if it was ripe or not but I never had this type of papaya and wanted to try it. After I couldn’t eat it, I looked…

Fruit feast day 29 #IKHLW

I got on the rebounder for 5 minutes this morning. I can really feel it in my legs and my abs. Pineapple date smoothie, watermelon and in the round container a piece of durian. The smoothie was bad. I really can’t get this smoothie thing right. If it’s not coconut water and mango I don’t…

Fruit feast day 28 #IKHLW

Prepping my lunch this morning. I decided bringing the knife to work wouldn’t be a good idea so I cut my watermelon in half and wrapped it in plastic so I could eat it right out the rind. I was out of mangoes and coconut water so I made a smoothie with pineapple, baby bananas…

Fruit feast day 27 #IKHLW

I did 5 minutes on my rebounder this morning. I could feel it in my legs my abs and arms. I am going to slowly work my way up to 15 minutes. I had my mango coconut water smoothie for my first meal. I brought a papaya, Asian pear and two Thai baby bananas to…

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 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…

Fruit feast day 8 #IKHLW

I learned my lesson today! I was so excited to try the durian I bought so I opened it up this morning pulled out the pods and packed it in a container for work. I did notice a smell but I didn’t think much of it. I get to work, pull the container out of…

Fruit feast day 4 #IKHLW

For my first meal I had 3 dragon fruit and one papaya. This was my first time having dragon fruit and I wasn’t disappointed! The red dragon fruit has a slight beet flavor. It is not sweet overall but it has sweet moments (if that makes sense). It has the texture of a kiwi. I…
