Week Of Raw Day 3

Unsweetened raw almond milk.
Day 3 of the raw food challenge! Today has gone very well so far, I had a smoothie for breakfast and a GIANT salad for lunch. Plus, my headache is GONE! I'm feeling great, my energy is normal, yesterday's lack of appetite is back to a normal hunger for food. For breakfast I made raw almond milk, something I hadn't made in a few years, It turned out beautiful. Then I turned it into a strawberry smoothie. Almond milk is super easy to make and tastes way better than almond milk you can buy at the stores. At least that's what I think. All you need to do is blend a handful of almonds with a cup of water and a few ice cubes then strain it through a cheese bag. If you don't strain it the milk will just be very gritty. So if you like grit in your milk, go for it. But when it is strained it becomes very smooth, it's almost like half and half creamer. I like both drinking it plain with a little sweetener or unsweetened in smoothies. Everything I've had this week has tasted wonderful, it really shows me that healthy can also be delicious. Dinner tonight is mexican salad with fresh salsa and guacamole dressing. Mexican food is my favorite, so I can't wait for it! Alright, that's all for today. I'll be seeing you tomorrow at the halfway point!

  1. I used to make my own almond mile all the time and you're right. It's delicious. And in a fruit smoothie I like the "grit" because it adds a bit of nutty texture which I like.
