I'm posting again!

Ok! So, I haven't blogged in a few months. My absence from blogging does not mean I abandoned eating raw. I will admit I'm not 100% raw, nor am I truly aiming for it. I am content with eating 1 or 2 cooked meals a day. Maybe it's because of my schedule, during the day I tend to drink smoothies, juices, teas etc... In the evening I prefer a hot meal like baked yams with brussel sprouts.

On to today's meals.
I have an important test this week and I've tweaked my diet to make sure I'm including plenty of brain food. While researching, I found some of the best brain foods are mixed nuts such as pecans and walnuts are great to assist in keeping calm. Dark fruits and veggies such as red or purple grapes, kale and spinach, and all berries like strawberries, blueberries and blackberries help long term memory. Teas such as peppermint and green tea help one to concentrate.

 Breakfast: Green Tea Smoothie

Snack: Kale Chips and Grapes 

Dinner: Green Smoothie w/ kiwi, pineapple, spinach, parsley, lemon, pear and ginger

Dessert: Raw Macaroons 

and Peppermint Tea!
