Raw Food Diet Detox

So my eating has been out of control lately. Lots of junk and too many calories.

I know better.

I feel like crap and let’s face it, we all know that how you feel physically is directly related to what you are eating.

Garbage in, garbage out.

No wonder I don’t feel like working out.

Well for the week I am going to do a minimalist eating raw food eating plan.

raw food diet
Baby Spinach

Spinach for fiber and nutrients.

raw food
Mixed Fruit

Mixed fruit for fiber and nutrients.

bee pollen
Bee Pollen

Bee pollen contains more than 96 nutrients and combines 22 amino acids, vitamin C , B-complex and folic acid, polyunsaturated fatty acids, enzymes, and carotene – all of the major antioxidants that have so far been discovered. 35 grams of bee pollen daily contains all the nutrients needed by the human body to sustain life.

olive oil
Olive Oil

The health benefits of olive oil are due to both its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and its high content of antioxidative substances. No other naturally produced oil has as large an amount of monounsaturated as olive oil -mainly oleic acid.

Olive oil is very well tolerated by the stomach. In fact, olive oil’s protective function has a beneficial effect on ulcers and gastritis. Olive oil activates the secretion of bile and pancreatic hormones much more naturally than prescribed drugs. Consequently, it lowers the incidence of gallstone formation.

cinnamon
Cinnamon

Cinnamon for the positive effects it has on blood sugar.

I plan to mix all this together in my mini blender 4-6 times per day. That’s it.

Throw in some P90X and Insanity workouts plus walking to work and I should be back on track.

If you have any comments please share.

    really? wow! i love food. but i think it would probably be good for me to do some kind of detox, as in give up refined sugar for a week, i use biscuits to cheer myself up which isn’t reallya good long-term idea!

    1. Yeah we all have those “feel good” foods. For me it is Peanut Butter(natural) and jam on toast!. What I read about detoxing(and I am a HUGE fan of them) is that a week is not going to do much good after “x” number of years of not so good eating/living.

      Bee pollen is pretty amazing stuff!

  2. Please tell me the amounts of the above concoction you are mixing in your blender:
    spinach, mixed fruit, bee pollen, olive oil, cinnamon. Thanks.
