As the title implies… the morning started off a little rainy. I did wake up early, but Mike had to leave for business early so I wasn’t able to get to Pilates Class this morning. Hopefully this afternoon I can squeeze it in.:)

But, I did get up and made this mornings Juice Drink of Carrot, Beet and Cucumber. I also took my spoonful of Barley Max with water and took at look at the menu for today. 

HINT: Cucumber juice is a natural diuretic, is beneficial for those with rheumatic ailments, is high in potassium, promotes hair and fingernail growth and helps to eliminate skin eruptions.

Barley Max 30 minutes before lunch 

Lunch:  Bananas until I’m satisfied

Mid Afternoon: 8oz Carrot Juice

HINT: Carrot Juice is the #1 Juice in the diet. Contains natural vitamins, B,C,D,E,K and beta carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, as well as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and many other minerals a trace minerals.

Barley Max 30 minutes before dinner

Dinner: Hallelujah Acres Cabbage Salad &   Carrot Soup

My old juicer had a bit of problem Wednesday night as I was using it to juice some carrots for the Carrot Soup…. so the Soup looked nothing like a soup.

Maybe my ticket was called, when I indulged in some Sherbet Friday night at the movies.?? Or did it start earlier than that, when I was dipping into the Whipped Topping with my Fresh Fruit Desserts???

Anyway you cut it, I’m laid up with back pain making getting around slower than usual.:( And it also means, I’m not hitting the Pilates Gym (since Thursday) getting my usual cardio workout and physical exercise. So eating has somewhat fallen by the wayside.:(

Mike and I have been making some hearty soups to eat, to help beat the colder temperatures and I’ve been tossing my Green Salads. We’re using all the Vegetables and goodies we’re buying at the Costco and Giants Grocery Store, but it’s the extras that are getting me down.

Monday night, I indulged in a bowl of Strawberry Ice Cream.
Sunday afternoon, I indulged in a block of Hershey’s Chocolate with Nuts and a spoonful of Peanut Butter. This was a repeated snack from Saturday Night. I just had the urge for chocolate (and there’s a reason why!)
In addition to all these indulgences I’ve also been over doing it on the Whole Wheat Bread and taking extra servings of all these great soups.

He called it Minestrone Soup with out the noodles. I didn’t make either, so I’m just going to list the ingredients.
Cabbage
Carrots
Parsnips
Yellow Onions
Spinach
Zucchini
Squash
Tomato Paste
Diced Tomatoes

He actually told me he got the idea to make this soup after he read my Raw Recipe Cook Book. After reading the Lentils & Barley Soup Recipe and the Carrot Soup Recipe he made this version.
Barley
Potato
Garlic
White Beans
Carrots
Lentils
Onions
Cabbage
