All this computer work has my eyes strained. I got some eyebright herb from EHC and made tea in my infuser. I let the tea cool and used it as a base in my smoothies this week. Eyebright is great for inflammation of the eyes, tired eyes, eye strain, and eye irritation. It has also been used for respiratory conditions such as allergies, sinus infections, colds and bronchitis.
I also moved all the original RawFoodMealPlanner.com recipes to the Recipes section of the site. Click on the links of the meal plan to take you to the recipes. They will open in a new window.
For those new to RawFoodMealPlanner.com: A word about the Exercise Plan
I think working out is important and should be a part of any healthy lifestyle. Eating well and exercise go hand in hand. The blood needs to circulate and the heart needs to work. The lymph nodes need to drain so cardio is important. I know I have waves of doing really well with sticking to my exercise routine and then I fall off because life takes over. Work is getting crazy busy now for me but still that’s no excuse. So as a reminder for myself, I will include a workout for the week that I will attempt to get in this week. This will be at the bottom of each meal plan.
Breakfast: 32 oz freshly juiced apple juice
Lunch: Raspberry Comfort Smoothie
Dinner: Guacamole Wraps
Snack: Goldenberries Cacao Cake
- 1 cup goldenberries
- ¾ cup raw walnuts
- 1⁄4 cup raw cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon coconut nectar (optional if you prefer sweet over tart)
- Combine the berries, walnuts, and cacao powder in the food processor. Process until the dough begins sticking together.
- Press the dough into a small dessert pan
- Place in the fridge to store. It will firm up. You can cut to your liking if you want to make cookies.
- Will keep for many weeks in the refrigerator or freezer. Thaw for 5 minutes before eating.
