Month 3: Replenish Enzymes

Left after my first enzyme replenishing lunch, yum.

You would figure that giving me an extra day in February before I had to start my third detox month would have meant that I had TIME to post, but no. I filled it up with other important and income producing activities. Oh well! Although I am only posting now about the rules for month three, I still started following them yesterday. At least I’m on top of that!

This month is all about replenishing enzymes and a big part of that plan is raw food.

So here are the rules:

1. Have at minimum one serving of raw food at every meal, three times a day.

2. Have one meal per week (breakfast NOT included) that is completely raw.

3. If ever it is impossible to have raw food at a meal, take enzyme supplement to continue enzyme replenishing.

I feel like I might have to add more as I do some reading, but I think this is a good start. The reason I have stipulated in #2 that breakfast doesn’t count is because it would be way too easy just to eat some fruit and call it a meal. The point is that I discover new recipes that are completely raw or find local establishments to get them at. For a start, I had a great lunch at a little restaurant called The Green Door yesterday. It is here in Ottawa on Main street and it was absolutely fantastic. I can imagine it would be a sweet relief for people who are intolerant of certain foods cause it lists things like ‘dairy free’, ‘egg free’ and ‘gluten free’ above the meals. It is also cafeteria style, so you can sample a bit of everything. When I told my husband about it, the first comment he made was something about an old, classic porno film having a similar name.  “Behind the Green Door”.  Ya. Not the reaction I was expecting, but I’m sure he’ll never forget the name now! he he he

Opinions? How does this month sound?

  1. Reblogged this on .

  2. Holy crap! This is really hard to imagine. Although, my boyfriend’s daughter was a raw vegan for awhile. She lives in Taiwan and is finding that she needs to alter to simply vegan. GOOD LUCK! peace to you,

    • Really? I didn’t think it was THAT extreme. A serving of raw with your lunch could mean a cup of baby carrots. With dinner, a chicken caesar salad. The only thing I’m worried about is finding recipes for the one completely raw meal I will eat a week. lol Thanks for the comment!

  3. I can’t wrap my mind around one completely raw meal. Hmmm.

  4. I think it’s a great idea and not that hard to do! I often snack have raw sugar snap with my meal, crispy and very sweet. I am not a vegetarian either but I like to try, experiment and they have really interesting and delicious food! I always wanted to try the famous raw lazagna(with zucchinis) but never did. Here is a link for raw food http://www.crudessence.com/fr/recettes/livre-de-recettes

  5. great blog Jen, not that hard to do!
