Hey everyone! So let me just warn you there are no pics today, just a verbose post of things that probably don’t really matter but I’m curious about As you know I’m about to embark on a raw journey. My goal is to start over the next week or two. My plan is to be as low maintenance as possible with this since raw diets are SO time consuming and SO labor intensive. I’m thinking I’ll start the day with a giant serving of green juice, midday meal will be a big green salad, an afternoon snack with healthy fats and dinner will involve some sort of effort, ha! We’ll see how that works out though. My first question for you, my friends: What is your favorite raw salad? What dressings do you enjoy (no vinegar except apple cider vinegar and no sweeteners)? What are some of your favorite raw recipes and snacks (light on fruit and no added sweeteners)?
So last night I indulged my inner uber nerd and figured out my blood type using a home blood typing kit. It was actually really fun and it brought me back to high school science lab My trainer and I were curious about it because there are theories of blood types contributing to certain health problems so that was the main goal behind figuring it out (and no, my Drs didn’t know or want to tell me). So now I know and I guess we’ll see what the next step is. As a side note on this whole topic, have you guys heard of eating for your blood type? I’ve heard of it and haven’t put too much thought into it but decided to take a look because I finally know what my type is and UGH! If I follow this stupid diet I’d have to get rid of tons of my staples/favorites like avocados, tomatoes, corn, lentils, peanuts, sesame seeds, beans and legumes, grains and starches, coconut, cinnamon, and pepper. I feel like if I got rid of this stuff there would be nothing left, certainly none of my higher calorie powerhouse foods! Well I’ll be getting rid of some of these foods for the raw cleanse I’ll be doing so I guess I’ll see how it works. Never getting rid of my avocados though! Have you heard of eating for your blood type? Any thoughts or do you know anyone that does it?
I may not be around for the weekend because my mom and I are babysitting Delilah and the animals while my bro and sister in law are in New Orleans for her birthday. I’m going to try and pop in but she is definitely a two person job, ha!
Hope you all have a great night! Tonight is the mid-season finale of Impractical Jokers and of course I’ll be watching. Then I’ll have to impatiently wait for the new episodes later this year
