Day 2 - Anna

I made the prettiest smoothie this morning; bananas, purple kale, strawberries and spinach topped with protein powder and blended with filtered water. I like the smoothie idea; getting 4 servings of fruits and vegetables before 9am is fantastic. I'm definitely going to make a habit of this. The best part is everyone at work thinks it looks disgusting, so I don't have to share.

There are some foods that I am eating that are not technically raw, like the hummus tahini from Holy Land. But it has only six ingredients (chick peas, tahini, fresh garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt) and is so delicious that I end up eating more raw vegetables when using it as dip. That's my rationalization, anyway. Yesterday Kelly and I had a miscommunication about dinner, so, distraught and all alone (sniff!) I resorted to whole wheat spaghetti and organic marinara sauce from Lunds. At least when I stray, I stray vegan.

Kelly also made me the most incredible concoction of dates, walnuts, and raw cacao. Honestly, now that I have this the raw diet goes up several points in my estimation. I forced my friend Adam to try it (we are both chocolate snobs) and he was pleasantly surprised at how sweet and chocolate-y it tastes.

  1. Hi Anna:

    I think what Nate & Kelly did with their experiment was cool. I think your CHALLENGE will be cool too! However, I like EGGS:
