Raw food

My friend Erin asked me to do a raw food diet with her for a week. At first I was a little skeptical that I could get through a whole day without carbs. Boy, was I wrong. I'm so glad I try it. My 1st day I ate strawberries, blueberries, and a banana for breakfast. My morning snack was an apple w/almonds, and raisins. My lunch was a spinach taco salad w/no meat. My afternoon snack was
bell peppers, carrots, and cucumbers. My dinner was a spinach salad w/pecans, and fruit. I was amazed that I did it first of all, but how I didn't feel depressed for carbs at all. In the next few days I started to feel lighter, more alert, less tired, my eyes were brighter, and my skin looked amazing. I knew I was on to something wonderful for me. I'm so thankful to my friend Erin for encouraging me to try this. Here's the book she let me read to understand how raw food benefits your body. Check it out.
