Raw B,M&S 66 Day - Day 43 & 44

Day 43

I have been pretty good except when it came to tea time, I had some chips...OOOHHH NOOO!
I spent time in the kitchen tonight and I've got Kefir flavouring now and I also made some Russell James Coconut yogurt.

My husband bought me a diddy little slow cooker the other day just for me because I am going to have small amounts of cooked grains EVERYTHING else raw though with the odd bowl of quinoa or other grain that is good along with raw foods, so I now have a tub of cooked quinoa in the fridge which I am going to have along with raw veg and a raw dressing for tea tomorrow.
I asked my other half to pop to Asda for a few things last week and one item I wanted was a bag of spinach, now, Asda always has bags of spinach and it usually is pretty good EXCEPT when I ask my hubby to pop to Asda to buy spinach because my hubby being my hubby gets help with the packing from the cashier and to my horror when I unpacked the bags I noticed that the cashier had actually put two 5kg bags of poatoes ON TOP of the bag of spinach....can you believe that???? Wouldn't you have thought that a lady cashier would have more sense than to do that?...UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Day 44
I have been quite good today but I did sneak one of my hubby's blue Riband biscuits.

I tell you what I am DEFINITELY going to do, I am going to do Russell James' weekly menu plans, to do plans and his shopping list plans of the foods that are on the menu for that week, might save an absolute fortune, could do with learning to save money and budget more now, so the sooner I learn the better and it starts NOW! And my raw menu planning starts NOW! The menu planning is in Russell James' first week or two of his main course, not the desserts course. I have printed out a lot of his planning sheets to keep me going.

I had raspberry flavoured kefir this morning...LOVE those raspberries!! Thanks to my friend who is also a raw foodie! I am going to buy a bag of the frozen strawberries from Costco the next time I am there.

My plans as well as the Russell James' menu planning etc is to consume a lot more probiotic and fermented foods because I think my digestion is shot so this will help get it back on the right track. I am also incorporating a few grains into my menu, not much though and just sometimes.

Have you ever watched Cafe Janae on You Tube? She is a raw foodie mostly but she has a few grains, well this is where I have got the idea of the grains from. Here is her link: Cafe Janae

Check out her vids and let me know what you think, she has some fabulous recipe's on there.
