Jason and I have been eating out waaaay too much lately, hence the abandoned blog! We've decided to renew our commitment to raw foods and go on a 30 day nothing but raw challenge! Today marks day 3 and I'm already feeling more energy. Yesterday, I probably drank around 7 cups of green smoothies, loaded with banana, kale, dates, ginger, and occasionally some raw protein powder and raw coconut oil. I drank a wonderful 4 cup smoothie on my way to work (at a veggie/vegan/raw restaurant) which powered me through my shift.
With the raw food comes some awesome news! I DID A PULL UP YESTERDAY! Every day for weeks, I've tried to do at least one pull up. I started out barely being able to pick myself up. Jason has made funny home videos of me trying to do them. My in laws kicked my butt in a pull up competition (and planking too, for that matter). Finally, I have not one, but two, under my belt! Now that the ice is broken, today I plan on doing 5!
My new mountain bike! Me and this baby climbed 5 miles to the top of South Mountain in Phoenix. I raced Jason up, with him running and me on my bike. He was only like 1.5 minutes behind me. I must admit that if it weren't for a long stretch of downhill at the end, he would have whooped me!
Some other great news here at Wicked Raw is that we've started a fun side business! We're now selling our organic raw granola and macaroons on our new website! More products will be listed today, many with local ingredients. Some of our local suppliers practice organic farming, but aren't yet certified organic. Products with local ingredients include our Mesquite Macaroons, Orange Cranberry Macaroons, and Lucuma Pecan Granola. All of our snacks include Arizona Medjool dates, which are oh so soft and tasty! Be sure to check out our Wicked Raw Foods Facebook and Blog!
