I've been incorporating more raw foods into the kids' diets. They've always eaten raw foods every day, but mostly as snacks. Now I'm serving them as meals too. Above is Friday's lunch for the kids. Below is Matthew's breakfast from Friday.
Now for an update on my detox diet.
Friday's meals consisted of Essiac tea first thing in the morning, and a plum & cherries & some prunes for breakfast.
For lunch, I had to go to the store to restock on veggies and fruit and also bought olive oil to make some dressing. So I had a salad mix with bell pepper and cucumber slices, sunflower seeds, and topped it with a dressing of olive oil, basalmic vinegar, and garlic sea salt. I also had a few chunks of kiwi and some watermelon!
For Friday's dinner, my husband wanted to go to Shoney's for the seafood buffet. I ate raw broccoli, shredded carrot, grape tomatoes, cucumber slices, and grapes, no dressing. It was not pleasant. And I did not get a picture.
Then we took Ella and Matthew to the play ground and played and then went to Books a Million where I ordered a grande chai tea with soy milk and made up for my nasty dinner.
Then as planned, I woke up Saturday and my raw diet was on break. I had my essiac tea, then a banana and cocoa almonds. Then for lunch, we went to the community barbeque, where I didn't get a picture, but I ate fried cornbread, coleslaw, baked beans, red potatoes, cake with peanutbutter icing, and sweet tea. *Big Smile* It was sooooo good!
Ella and Matthew enjoyed icecream cones for their dessert.
Then for dinner, we had more of the same, minus the dessert and cornbread. That's homemade barbeque sauce on my slaw, potatoes and beans there.
Sunday morning, I woke up and had essiac tea, and an apple with peanutbutter. Then for lunch, I had a salad, and finished off some left-over cole slaw, and baked beans.
And for dinner, I baked a wild caught salmon and ate a piece with lemon, onion, green beans, toast, and a mix of "field peas, snaps, and vidalia onions" that came in a can from Publix. It was yummy by the way.
So I am still on a detox diet break as we have a birthday party to go to tonight, but I plan on eating raw, whole foods the rest of the day up to the party.
