My very first meal (truly a break-fast) was watermelon.-just a tiny bit, I got full really fast.
For lunch I had Romaine lettuce boats filled with cucumber slices, avocado slices, and my own homemade mango salsa. YUM!
Then for dinner, my Sweetie took me to Quintessence to celebrate. Quintessence is a raw vegan restaurant in the East Village here in NYC. WOW!! Deliciousness!!! To start, we ordered chips and dips (raw flax crackers and raw corn chips-wonderful- served with a yummy guacamole and an amazing tomato salsa that had the perfect amount of kick to it.) Then we shared a seaweed salad-so good! I ordered the zucchini noodles with an olive mushroom sauce and my Honey ordered the Indian platter. Both were scrumptious. We shared everything and finished off splitting a piece of raw pecan pie that blew our socks off!
However, I may have overdone it a bit. I am feeling a bit under the weather from all that rich deliciousness today. Nevertheless, I am very glad for the experience! Today will be all light fare--and yes, all raw vegan!

Traveling to NH over the holiday weekend was a bit challenging, but I made it through with flying colors. Packing and unpacking my Breville juicer and shopping for vegetables...well, lets just say that I did a little bit of water fasting rather than juice fasting over the weekend -just for convenience sake.
I will eat a mostly raw vegan diet after the fast and I have already begun to build my raw kitchen with a few small purchases of a spiraler and a mandolin. My next big purchase will be a Vitamix and then a little later I will purchase a dehydrator. I've also started to purchase a few small raw goodies at the market whenever I go to get my juicing veggies-just so it's not a whopping bill when I start eating again.
I've purchased some chia seeds, namo shoya, and some nutritional yeast (I know this is not a raw food.)
My next small purchases will be some Raw coconut oil and some raw cacao. Then a bag or so of different kinds of raw nuts whenever I'm shopping.
So what will I eat for my first few meals after 60 days of juice only?
Here are some options:
Day one: a green smoothie in the morning, guacamole with crudites for lunch and maybe a banana at night.
Day Two: juice in the morning, kale salad for lunch, and an avocado at night.
Day three: watermelon in the morning, zucchini pasta with cashew Alfredo sauce for lunch, a green smoothie at night.
Anyway, it all sounds delicious to me and I am really starting to think about eating again as the days wind down...
