Raw Day 4

I woke up at 7:00 a.m. and had an apple and a banana. (Organicgoddess suggested I just eat fruit for breakfast, and not soaked grains, for optimal digestion, so I decided to give it a try). All was well, except I found myself starving by 10:30.

Lucky for me, right about then a friend tweeted this raw cinnamon roll smoothie. Since I love my ww ff cinnamon buns, and I enjoyed these live cinnamon buns (from 30-Minute ...

Raw Week

As some of you may have heard on twitter, I'm going 100% raw this week and a few of my tweeps have joined me! You can call it a cleanse or detox if you'd like but those are not necessarily my motivations for doing this.

Around December I started feeling like I wanted to do a raw cleanse or a raw week. I'd been under so much stress and pressure with the cookbook that I was eating ...
