Food Hangover

After starting the raw food challenge in August, I have had a pretty clean diet.  Not 100% raw, but always over 65% and generally 90% of what I’ve been eating is fresh produce.  But yesterday I splurged! I had my girls over yesterday for a fun romp around Pacific Beach that culminated with a stop at the store and a massive cook-fest. We had a gourmet cooking party that involved everything from grilled focaccia bread, to Andouille sausage nachos, to figs that were sliced open, stuffed with blue cheese and broiled to gooey perfection.  It was a feast.  It was fabulous.  But today I have a food hangover, a bloated tummy, a rumble in my gut, and phlegm.

It was well worth it to celebrate with the girls, but even as we were wraping up dinner last night we were laughing about the progression of our habits.  It used to be a night out clubbing followed by greasy nachos to soak up the booze.  Now it’s a long walk around the beach and bay followed by a gourmet dinner.  And we all agreed that a good night out next time would be a long, hot yoga class followed by a juice fest!  Oh how times have changed.

So today, I started my day with a probiotic and later an acai bowl and a green drink.  I’ll be doing a 100% raw today because I know it will have my stomach back in order in no time.  AND it will be delicious so it will be a double win!

By the way…
if you want the skinny on how to make the fig foccaia pizza above, you’ll have to subscribe to my newsletter.  That’s Andrea’s secret recipe and she won’t let me hand it over to just ANYBODY.  But the Delicious Revolution Newsletter crew gets the low down on what can only be described as come f*ck me pizza.

    Wow! I am so thankful for your blog and site! My hubby and I are volunteering here in Africa and we are on our 2nd year here. I have not been raw very long but it is a life choice that I needed to make. You would think in Africa you would have tons of fresh veggies herbs and fruits.. but alas where I am it isn’t so and I really have to be creative with what i got. So thank you thank you thank you! This site is helping me SO much! Many blessings to you! 😀
