Day 21 - Three weeks into 31-Day Raw Challenge

Okay, so I spoke too soon yesterday when I said I was doing so well. I did cheat a bit today, but it was a small cheat. =)

I made some fresh Tomato Salsa the other day, and earlier today, my stepson told me that it tasted so much better the second day, now that the flavors had a chance to meld. Then, hubby was snacking on some salsa and chips and he commented on how good it was. Without thinking, I walked over, grabbed a chip and scooped up some salsa. I guess I didn't realize the impact of two little Serrano chili peppers because almost instantaneously I was hootin' n hollerin' n doing a jig around the kitchen. I was choking and gasping like I'd swallowed fire. I grabbed a bunch of chips to diminsh the burning in my mouth and throat. It was a site to behold, I'm sure. Unfortunately, I ate some chips that were most definitely NOT raw!

I didn't eat before heading out to the gym this morning but when I got home, I made up a protein smoothie of banana, vanilla beans, raw almond butter (didn't make almond milk), cacao nibs (out of cacao powder), peanut butter, agave, coconut oil, maca, mesquite powder, hemp protein powder and water with ice. This was quite filling because it kept me going for several hours.

Then I went out and did yard work which took up about four hours. I realized I hadn't eaten anything, so I came in and made up some juice of Carrots, Celery, Beet, Ginger, Lemon and Wheat Grass. =|

Then went to the natural market where I ended up buying a Greens Plus Protein bar because I was just plain starving. Another "not raw" item. =(

For dinner, I had a salad and now I'm munching on some Buckwheat Bars and drinking a bottle of water.

It was a very busy and productive day today that flew by like greased lightning!
