Frivolous Friday ;-) day 5 of my 26 day raw cleanse

Frivolous Friday ;-) day 5 of my 26 day raw cleanse

Yay today is Friday and I do have the Friday feeling 🙂
I am meeting with 19 friends tonight for a vegan meal. I had this arranged before I decided to go on a cleanse so tonight I will have a light cooked vegan meal. I do not get silly when I’m on a cleanse if I really want something then I shall have it! Why deny myself or suffer that’s not what life is about. I choose to be eating this way, my choice if I want to have cooked or raw foods.

I had some fruit water in the morning, a shrek juice for lunch (recipe on blog somewhere)
For the meal i had a couple of spring rolls for starters then I had a vegan Thai curry with rice for main, I could only manage half of the meal. A vegan chocolate cake for desert again could only eat half.
It was a great evening with wonderful friends.

Feeling Fruity Thursday ;-) day 5 of my 26 day raw spring cleanse

Feeling Fruity Thursday ;-) day 5 of my 26 day raw spring cleanse

Woke up today feeling wide eyed and bushy tailed 🙂
I started the day with a Green hemp smoothie I love these as they are filling nutritious, boost the immune system and are great fun to create. hemp is natures perfect food for Vegans/Vegetarians as it contains balanced amounts of omega 3, 6 and 9. Hemp is great for the brain, skin and all of our organs. I have stumbled upon a great article about hemp at hemptons

Hemp milk recipe:
3 tablespoons of hemp seeds (grind with a coffee grinder or pestle and mortar)

Whizz up until water turns milky
Strain out hemp shells with nut bag, sieve or whatever you have

Simple, now you have hemp milk 🙂

I had water throughout day then a salad at 5 pm
Unfortunately I tucked into the salad and had eaten half of it before I remembered to take a picture :-/
I used Kale in the salad, rocket, baby leaf, pine nuts, olives and I made a mint dressing with mint leaves, olive oil, tsp raw honey, tsp cider vinegar and dash lemon juice.

I had a raw chocolate desert after that I’d made previously from freezer.

Yum yum bubblegum 🙂
