Two weeks ago Jack and Sally went from eating foods like a typical English fry up and steak and chips, to eating nothing but a diet made up of raw vegan foods. This meant no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, soy, cooked grains and pulses, sugar, coffee, black tea – and nothing heated above 45°c. The […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
Before I begin, I must first apologise. Yesterday, I promised you a recipe for Peppermint Chia Chocolate. But alas and alack, this can no longer happen. Well it can, it’s just that I don’t have an enticing photograph of the Peppermint Chia Chocolate to show you, and I do like an enticing photograph to match […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
If I was worried about how Jack and Sally would get on without me when I’m gone before, I’m certainly not now! I have just left the dinner table after being served a.. (wait for it).. a five course meal made exclusively of raw, living foods prepared by non other than Jack himself!!! And let me […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Jack – “I think I’ve turned a corner, Elaine. I feel really good this morning. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I feel really happy! HALLELUJAH!!! I made Jack and Sally a Raw Chocolate and Coconut Milkshake for breakfast to celebrate (see below for recipe!). Jack woke up first thing feeling energised and […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I got back from a run just before lunch today to find Jack sprawled out on the sofa looking annoyed, bored and sad all at the same time. Oh dear. When I asked him what the matter was, he just said he was knackered and of course it had to be the raw foods fault. […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
I think it is safe to say that today was a far better day than yesterday. We didn’t go to the gym this morning, and Jack feels much better for it. I think doing exercise on top of all the raw food is maybe too much for him at this early stage. No more […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
There was tension in the air between Jack and myself this morning. I wanted to go to the gym. He didn’t. I don’t have a car. He does. I could have gone for a run outside, but I’ve got a seven day pass and I want to use my freebie up before it runs out. […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
We have finally arrived at the end of the first week. Seven full days of eating nothing but raw food! We decided to have a very light day today, having nothing but juice until dinner time and avoiding nuts. We’re all feeling the need to cleanse even further, although this isn’t always easy to […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Sally – I could fancy an egg. Jack – Me too. With some anchovies. Sally – And cheese. A cheese and fried egg sandwich. Jack – On white bread or brown? Sally – I don’t mind really Jack – I haven’t eaten meat for 10 days… Sally- Or a yoghurt. I’d quite like a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’m feeling a bit guilty as I’m having to leave Jack and Sally to be left to their own devices until dinner time tomorrow… Well, if you call being left millions of pieces of paper with instructions written on all over the kitchen being ‘left to your own device’. I have had to flee the […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
