Green Drink and Raw Stuffs!

**This never posted yesterday!  Now it's Day 4 of the challenge, but I wanted to post this even though it's late...**

Day 3 of the 100 day challenge, and that challenge includes eating healthier!  My typical vegan diet is being shaken up a bit with the help of a variety of raw foods.  I have a goal of a minimum of one meal per day as raw, which has not been difficult at all so far.  Today, that meal turned into two:

Raw Pasta and Cheeze Sauce:

Spiralized Zucchini (so good!) tossed with raw Cheeze Sauce made up of a red pepper, macadamia nuts, Celtic sea salt and cayenne pepper.  (recipe from the RawFoodWorld TV show linked to the right on my blog!)

Green Drink:

2 cups green leaf lettuce
1 cup turnip greens
2 celery sticks
1 apple
1 pomegranate
water from the pomegranate (when I soaked it to get the seeds out easily)

Whizzed around in the Vitamix for a moment, and this was a surprisingly good drink!  I sealed 2 more portions of it in glass containers and will be having those tomorrow!

Nothing else eventful happened much with Day 3.  It was a bit discouraging.  No surprises, no good news, and it was a lonely day, pretty much!  I did keep busy clearing out old photos and journal entries in my storage room.  (I think this has the answer to why today was not so great!)

One last note - I did discover journal entries from about 15 years ago.  I had forgotten some of the things I had been through.  I was a little angry when I read it and remembered the circumstances.  I have forgiven people and moved on, and apparently had forgotten the details.  This was a downer today, definitely.  What was a bit spooky about it all was how many times I was writing what I wished could happen.  I wished it page after page after page.  (not specific things, but general things that would free me of the situation I was in.)  The spooky part was - ALL of the things I said I wanted eventually happened.  Every single one.  Even the seemingly unreasonable ones.  It all happened within a year or two of my writing what I did.  I didn't know about intentions or manifesting or attracting, but I did it.  Knowing this, can you image what we can do when we are aware of how things work and also being more specific with our goals?

I had asked for many, many things in those journals.  I got every single one of them.  I just forgot to be specific.  Perhaps I did free myself of that situation years and years ago, but only to get tossed into another of the same!  Perhaps I did find a guy that seemed more interested in Britty... but I forgot to ask that he be honest and healthy and happy!  So I should be fine tuning those goals and wishes, because they DO happen.  They did 15 years ago, and they can only be healthier and better today.

Oh, and one more thing...  pomegranates are one of my new favorite fruits!!!!!  I love them!!!

Hi Candi! I'm a long time follower of your blog and wanted to wish you well on your 100 day challenge. Looks like you're already off to a great start.

I haven't heard you mention Jamie in a while. Are you two still together?

Hi 'Anonymous!' Yeah, my love life doesn't make it much to my blog! If I know you, just email me! I'm happy to share things with friends. I try not to post too many details like that here though since it's more a motivational blog. Well, I hope it is anyhow!

Thank you for the support. The challenge is very interesting, to say the least!

Take care!
