To the best of my ability, I’ve been taking my Barley Max 2 times a day. I’m supposed to take the Barley Max 3 times a day, the morning, 30 minutes before lunch and again dinner. But it never fails,  I’m out of the house for one of those meals or I just forget. For example, all day Tuesday I did not take my Barley Max or drink Carrot Juice.

On the Carrot Juice front, I’m drinking at least 1 to 2 glasses regularly. I’m not going to say a day, because it’s so speratic. Because of this irregularity with the Barley Max and Carrot Juice I don’t feel like my body is processing food as quickly or filling me up as much. Because believe it or not, I got filled up drinking the juice.

Onion Pizza & Salad Lunch

Onion Pizza & Salad Lunch

For lunch, Mike wanted to get a Pizza at Tally Ho Restaurant. So I went to the post office to mail his express mail and picked up the Cheese & Onion Pizza.  I asked him to order a part of the Pizza with no Cheese on it… and they made it like that!!!!

So I mixed up my Garden Green Salad and Oil & Vinegar Dressing to go along with the Pizza. I also added the Grilled Peppers, Onions & Zucchini to the Pizza too. It was quite good.

After my Pilates class this morning (which concentrated on the legs) I wanted to go across the street to get a drink from Starbucks.

I was torn, because I want to get off Caffeine.  I remembered listening to Dr. Oz Yesterday (Wednesday) and they were talking about Caffeine and Coffee and good substitutes. One of them was Green Tea. It provides nutrients and is less toxic on your system than Caffeine. So in an effort to get off Caffeine all together, I tried the Green Tea, Iced with no sugar added. It tasted like there’s no sugar, but it’s growing on me.

I broke from the norm of eating ONLY RAW FOODS today. Mike made Turkey Cutlets with Potatoes & Onions for lunch. I hadn’t eaten cutlets since before I made my change to Eating Raw Foods and it was good to eat this fresh, healthy meal. The meal I thought wasw healthy, because of the vegetables in the Cutlets and the Salad, and the turkey meat is high in Protein and a much better meat for me.

Turkey Cutlets

Turkey Cutlets w/Garlic

Ingredients:

4Onions

6Potatoes

1Pkg Ground Turkey

4Tbls Olive Oil

Tumeric

Paprika

Sea Salt

Pepper

Directions:

Boil Potatoes in water and peel skin. While Potatoes are boiling, peel & chop Onions and then combine package of ground Turkey Meat with Potatoes and Onions. Begin hand mixing the ingredients and add seasonings. Mold the ingredients in to flat, round patties and place into grill with Olive Oil and add Garlic Cloves and grill for 15 minutes or until meat is cooked.

I actually got the opportunity to participate in this lunch creation by molding the ingredients in to patties.  It’s a good thing I got my Pilates workout this morning (Wednesday).

While the Turkey Cutlets were grilling, I decided to make a Garden Salad  with an Oil & Vinegar Dressing to go along with the Cutlets. This Golden Balsamic Vinegar I’m using tastes so good paired with the Olive Oil, I don’t need any kind of seasoning in the Dressing. And I had a bag of Baby Green Lettuce that needed to be used… so there you go!

Ingredients:

1Bag of Baby Greens

Garden Green Salad

Wednesday Green Salad

1Red Bell Pepper

1 Yellow Bell Pepper

1 Avocado

1Small Bunch of Broccoli

3Green Onions

1/2Can of Chick Peas

4Mushrooms

Directions:

Clean and Chop up all the Vegetables and add to washed lettuce and serve. Add Oil & Vinegar to taste.

Yesterday and today (Wednesday), I did pretty well with not eating sweets or junk… and it really feels good to eat fresh and raw. But I can’t say that was true for dinner time.

Onion, Peppers, Zucchini

Onion, Peppers, Zucchini

I got my Garden Green Salad out for dinner and warmed up the Grilled Onions, Peppers & Zucchini  I made Sunday and ate that for dinner. I added the Chick Peas to the Salad, because I realized I had the open can in the refrigerator. A great meal, filling and I didn’t crave anything for a while. It may have been because I had some Hummus and Sangek Bread afterwards.

But as the night progressed… while we were watching Wednesday Night Comedy on ABC, I wanted a Chocolate Dove Bar. That’s 260 calories of useless sugar and chemicals! I don’t know why I can’t keep my hands off this stuff? It’s not helpfull that Mike goes out and buys it either.!
