I have been looking for a way to eat a bit healthier, and maybe lose a bit of weight in the process. So, I have been researching and I stumbled across eating raw.
I am not sure how this will all work out for me. I do not think I am ready to embrace this whole raw food culture that is out there. I am willing to try something new. I joined in with Young and Raw on their 30 day cleanse challenge for the month of April and so far I have had two of their green smoothies.
Yesterday was day one.
My smoothie was kale, parsley, ginger, and coconut water.
It tasted like I ate a handful of lawn clippings. Really, it did. I think I was still chewing on the kale and parsley hours later.
Not to be deterred by one recipe, I bravely made the drink for day two.
It was blueberries, parsley, spinach, and coconut water.
It still tasted vaguely of fresh cut grass, apparently parsley will do that to a beverage, but the blueberries made it much more tolerable.
I have no idea if this smoothie thing will work. I have noticed that I have had a bit more energy through the afternoon when I drink these in the morning.
…. I will let you know how the next few days go…. maybe I will even find a recipe that doesn’t taste like grass….
