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 ready for the day.There was no grumbling, in fact there were smiles all round. He said he felt completely different to how he has felt for the last few days, it was as if something had shifted. He wasn’t craving other foods so much and he felt in a really up beat mood. I made him a fresh juice and another portion of his beloved Gazpacho Soup for his lunch. I received this text from him after he’d eaten it – “That was tremendous, superb, amazing, incredible, edible, delectable, vegetables. Thanks!“.
Sally was happy and much more centred today, too. She had a simple salad and a couple of pieces of fruit for her lunch today. She says she is really enjoying the feeling of being healthy. She no longer has any massive cravings (apart from the egg, obviously), but her biggest concern is when I leave. She is worried that she’ll just end up staring at the fridge thinking “Help!”. So tonight she was in the kitchen with me making the Raw Pesto for the courgette spaghetti. This is her favourite dish and one that she is really keen to learn how to make for herself. She couldn’t believe how simple it was, I mean, it really is just whizzing a few ingredients up in a food processor. Anybody can do it. The most taxing part may be the fact that you need to soak the sunflower seeds. A lot of people go “Ooo, soaking seeds? I’m not sure about that… Oh, that all sounds a bit much for me that… Sounds too much like hard work”. Does it? Really?! It only takes about 30 seconds to pour some sunflower seeds in a bowl and cover them with water 🙂 It’s just the fore thought that might seem something like ‘hard work’, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s very easy. Promise…
