After my watering stint, I came inside and poured the last of my smoothie from a bottle kept in the refrigerator. It was a particularly foul-looking thing whose tan color reminded me of paint meant for a military barracks. It was a tad sweet (fresh pineapple) so I noted to cut back next time. After I drank all 16 ounces I was on to the next thing. I didn't feel loaded down or groggy. I didn't feel like I wanted a nap. In the short-term I think this has worked out very well. I am not a walking scientific experiment, but I do feel better and I do have more energy. If I could always feel this good I'm sure I'd stick with it. But, my vegetable garden will soon be yielding some nice things and I'll have to switch to my manually-operated masticating juicer. ;) Once I do go back to eating with some chewing involved, I'll probably end up eating about the same number of calories. It is easy to throw a head of lettuce into a Vita-Mix, but hard to chew it. I am sure I'll continue on with smoothies each day to ensure my servings of produce are high. I will try to hang on with raw vegan eating until the 60 days are over, but will add nuts and seeds to the mix. For now, I am forging ahead with liquid only. The most important thing for all of us is to just eat FOOD. You know, the stuff that grows out there in the world? Fresh, quality food that is processed and refined as little as possible before we process it in out bodies. The Reboot is the perfect way to come to terms with your diet and your environment. Not only does it help us back to better nutrition, is mentally shows us that we can deal with less snacking, junk food and processed food. It shows us we can really do this. Whether liquid or solid, your food is better. That makes your health better. That makes you better.
