This is going really well! My partner Karen and I are finding a lot of great recipes and we're really loving this experience. Karen is down ten pounds and I'm down five since starting the fast, before that I'd lost three pounds and Karen had lost two. So all together, we are down 20 lbs since January 1st. Not too bad, eh?
I will confess to having moments of weakness. Tonight I squabbled with my honey and I was tempted to eat something, but instead I sipped a hot herbal tea. It's hard cooking meals for my kids and not tasting their food before I serve it. Today I taught a cooking class and we made some amazing meals... so hard to smell all that great tasting food.
Three more days to go! We have tried so many recipes, so that when this is over, we'll have a nice tidy collection of favourites to choose from when we return to our healthy clean eating vegan program. :D I want to enjoy a juice for breakfast, a salad for lunch, a smoothie for afternoon snack, a cooked supper and a juice before bed. I definitely want to keep all those lovely raw vegetables in my diet, both in juice and salad form. I'm excited to be done this fast so we can return to EATING!!!
Okay, that's all! I'll come back on Day 7.
