|Bennett REALLY liked my green raw smoothies. Totally worth|
getting your head stuck in a Vitamix blender.
Day 1 in the evening was actually the hardest. It's gotten easier since then. I had a BAD headache for about 7 hours. It was a sugar withdrawal. Isn't that crazy? Such a strong physical manifestation of detoxing from substances that most people wouldn't even think twice about consuming. And I wasn't even going crazy on sugar - just normal things like granola bars, chocolate, yogurt, cereal, bread. My "fixes." I'm excited that I did something hard. I broke a bad habit. I showed willpower and self-control. That's amazing me to, because I've always been such a fan of instant gratification. :) Those are the intangibles. Tangible benefits: my skin looks so much better. My nails look better and stronger. I have a wonderful steady energy all day - no highs or lows. Just constant. And my favorite - 9 pounds off, thus clothing fitting better. Maybe that's not my favorite actually. Because when mama goes raw, the whole family gets raw-er! Everyone's been eating more fruits and veggies - as snacks, and in smoothies. It makes me feel awesome to see my fam drinking green superfood concoctions! I reallyreally believe that everyone should eat this way at least 50% of their day. They'd be so much happier. Raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. It's filling and fullfilling in so many ways.
