My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission – Kristen Suzanne’s Raw Reboot™ – Update #5

by Kristen Suzanne in food journal, Kristen Suzanne

Helllllloooooo super star friends! Here I am…. it’s been over three weeks since I first blogged about My 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission. Has it really been that long already?

Soooo…. How do I feel? Mmmmmm…. F*cking GREAT!!!!! Sorry for the language, friends, but tis true… I have a potty mouth. I say my potty words with nothing but loooooove though. :)

What have I noticed over the past days with this blissful and nourishing food I’m eating? This sublime life I’m living? Well, a few things! 

Going out – I had a couple of moments where I wondered when I was going to get a break making food. Thankfully, the food style I’ve chosen is effortless for the most part, so doing this every day for every meal makes it that much easier. That being said, there are times that I’d love to wiggle my nose, cross my arms, and poof(!) have a raw meal in front of me. So what did I do? I went out to eat this week. We went to Chakra 4 Herbs (a lovely breastfeeding friendly place) where I met up with Karen Knowler last year… anyway, I digress (I’m feeling a bit chatty today)… I went there for some lovely raw foods. We ate lunch, I bought some extras to-go, and life was good. I’m going back Friday for more. Their food is heavenly. And, now that I’m officially calling myself a tea drinker (that’s a whole other post!!!), with Chakra 4 Herbs being a big tea house, it’s the best of everything.

What would I do, however, if I didn’t have a couple of raw places within a 30 minute drive? Well, I’d order raw foods online so that I could take a bit of time off from the kitchen (we all need a break once in a while, right?). My favorites so far are Pure Market Express and RAWvolution. UPDATE (1/25/12) – Although I’m listing Pure Market Express here as a source, I want to note a couple of things. In the past I’ve evaluated their food and loved many things and I’ve had a couple of things that I’m not crazy about. Also, I’ve heard of complaints about their policies, rancid nuts, etc. I only think it’s fair that I let you know.

Reviewing Intentions – The other thing I did routinely this week was to read over my previous blog posts about my 90-Day Clean Raw Food Mission as well as revisiting my 2012 goals, intentions, and notes about becoming a Total Ethereal Goddess. I keep these notes on my iPhone in the “notes” application where I can quickly access them all the time! Believe me – what a HUGE difference it makes to look at these multiple times a day. It stokes the fire.

Cut the cord - This was the official week where we cut the cord from the cable company and it’s been fantastic. I don’t miss it at all. We did get Apple TV so we can stream movies and documentaries and that’s been fun. So far we watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead and I Don’t Know How She Does It. We thoroughly enjoyed Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead… so much that I juiced the next day. I recommend it if you haven’t already seen it.

I love playing with the cinnamon, coffee, vanilla, coconut, almond, and strawberry the best so far – awesome in plain water, smoothies, raw chocolate, green juices, etc. Be sure to see if any are on sale when you visit the link I provided because sometimes they are in the At-Cost Special section.

Not bad! I actually ate them. I learned from my experience with the sea spaghetti yesterday that a smaller portion would keep me much more excited about eating them. The spicy sauce really helped cover the nori-ness of them. The only issue I had was when they approached my mouth I smelled the nori which isn’t appetizing to me. However, Greg looooooved them and wanted more. He went on and on about the perfectness of the sauce and said I had to share that recipe with everyone.
