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!
