Fruits and Veggies F(e)ast Day 3

when john and i were planning the f(e)ast, we agreed that it would be best to keep ourselves busy so we wouldn't think about food too much. this weekend we thought we'd take trips to the art museum, barnes and noble, and to spend time with our nieces and nephews...

...then the snow came. 

2 feet again! second time this winter! but this time it left pretty skies for us to enjoy while we shoveled our way out.


there's a lot of time to think about food when you're snowed in and watching movies. i wanted popcorn, raw cheez-its, philly soft pretzels, garlic bread, and pizza (of course). but i wasn't fantasizing about cheese pizza - i was thinking of tomato pies and raw pizza, which is a big step in the right direction for me! =)

i've also been craving oh my this is tuna and nori snacks (can't wait to make both!), so i munched on a few raw nori sheets throughout day 3.

Day 3
  • yogi's healthy fasting tea
  • smoothie: banana, braeburn apple, kale, goji berries, lemon
  • veggies with mashed avocado
  • juice: beet, celery, kale, carrot, blueberries, lemon, ginger
  • decaf green tea
  • raw nori sheet
  • salad: spring mix, avocado, tomato, cucumber
  • mango
  • orange
  • salad wrapped in a nori sheet
  • blueberries

we've been making juice using the ol' hamilton beach blender and a nut milk bag. see, you don't need a fancy juicer or $400 blender to eat raw!


(but this doesn't mean i wouldn't like a blendtec or vitamix... i'm just sayin' =)


  1. I love putting beets in juice, they make everything so pretty. I had an apple, beet, lemon, & aloe juice this morning, about the same color as yours. Raw cheez-its & pizza sound really good to me too, but as of now I'm still on the smoothies.

  2. horray for making juice in a blender! you are doing so well.

  3. Fantastic!! The Red drink looks soo good..and the pictures are beautiful.

  4. you make snowy days look so lovely...instead of cold...

    and i heart anything with beets...
