Day 30 - Last Day?

I can't believe it's been 30 days. We haven't eaten 100% raw every day (or probably even the majority of days), but we sure ate a lot more raw than we did before the experiment. For me, it's been great. There was rarely a time when I felt too hungry or deprived….probably because when I wanted fries and whiskey I just….didn't deprive myself. But we've learned a lot of great recipes, picked up some good habits, and had fun blogging for the first time.

This is not the last day for me. I plan keep eating similar to what I have been the last month, trying new recipes, and writing on the blog, so I hope you all keep reading.

With that, here's the weekend recap:

North Shore & Duluth

-Stopped in Duluth on Fri. eve on the way to the cabin at Hell's Kitchen, known for their excellent breakfast food. They had fantastic happy hour, $3 any tap from 8-10 p.m. So we did a comparison of our two favorites, Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Surly Furious. Surly is much darker, sharper, bitter, while Bell's is lighter and fruiter. But both hoppy and delicious! Food was great (Veggie Fritta, chips & salsa), but it felt like we were sitting in a Hot Topic store.

-Scary drives in a pitch black country road snowstorm and the next day on 20 miles of unplowed, unpaved country road with deer hopping around everywhere (we saw at least 50, and they ran in front of our car several times) reminded me why I am a city gal.

-Best small town dive discovery ever: Silver Bay Bowl! 6 lanes, manual scoring, and a 12 year old as the sole employee serving us beer. $3.50 per person for bowling & shoes.

-Sunday night at the Edge Waterpark in Duluth: Hotel itself and waterpark were sort of cr*p, but 6 friends, plenty of liquor, and a hot tub in the hotel room = a great party.

The foggy drive home:




  1. Bell's Two Hearted is one of my all time favorites. And I love seeing these pictures of Duluth weekend!

  2. My favorite wedding ever had Bell's Two Hearted on tap. It made me want to ruin their marriage just so we could do it all again.


  3. That hot tub photo is hilarious. I thought for a second I was on rawswingersrealpeople.com
