New Lunchtime Adventures

First, thanks to Anand and Angela for leaving such nice comments. I appreciate it!

Yesterday, I had mango, spinach and banana smoothie, which is just about my favorite. (There's a green juice I like even better, but that's different.) Today, late waking up again. Grabbed an odwalla superfood smoothie at the coffee shop. Not as good as a real homemade fresh smoothie, but it was green!

Lunch was great. I brought a bunch of different veggies from home and cut them up at my desk. I had belgian endive leaves, and I put bits of avocado and tomato on top, with a squeeze of lime juice. Yummy! And some mini bell peppers. I did add a few wheat crackers, but it was mostly raw veggies.

Meanwhile, at home, my husband is experimenting with lots of different homemade pickles. He has them for lunch with some fresh fruit.

I'm looking forward to weighing in on Sunday. It's not the only reason I'm trying whole, raw foods, but it is a big reason for me.

Have a healthy day!

p.s. Hopefully videos on youtube are coming soon. We bought a super-cheap $10 digital camera and it doesn't work. :( It was all we could afford, so no videos yet. If anyone reading this has had success with an inexpensive webcam, please let me know what you use.

I was wondering how you feel after eating wheat. I found out a year ago that when I cut out the wheat that I felt better and lost weight easier. I also went to the what's right for your blood type site and found that wheat supposedly isn't good for my blood type anyway. I've read that sprouted wheat is better for most people because something in the germination process does not actually have the gluten.
Anyway, I was just wondering if you've noticed any difference in how you feel after eating whole wheat products.

Hi Dakini. I feel better when I eat whole grains instead of wheat. I definitely lose weight better with whole grains because I don't overeat them as easily. It will be interesting to see how increasing raw foods affects my weight journey, the nuts and avocados have a lot of fat, but I try not to eat too many of them.

Have a great day!
