Well, once again I only have a few moments to write this post. So, I will make it brief. The cleanse is still going well. Yesterday I operated at 110% with only 6 hours of sleep, and restless sleep at that. Today was another restless night as well, and yet I feel like I have a lot of energy. Today I have been eating mostly fruit and drinking water. I have had a little bit of raw granola I made, thought. I decided yesterday I have been eating too many nuts and seeds. I wish I had been juicing more.
I really feel like the cleanse has been helping me focus more on my day-to-day tasks. Even though I still have a slightly foggy head, my ability to focus and get work done has seemingly increased. Just this morning I rocked out a ton of Bearded Brothers samples, shipped off several orders, and prepared several wholesale orders for delivery later this week. I feel like I’m on fire!
I will say my fitness level has been a bit less than I was hoping for this week. I was hoping to exercise daily, but that has yet to happen but mainly because of a busy schedule, not for the lack of desire or energy. I was planning on going rock climbing tomorrow, but decided to take an impromptu trip to Stephenville, TX to the Barefoot Market to celebrate the last day of the cleanse with part of the Cleanse America crew. I’m looking forward to enjoying some of the delicious raw foods prepared in the wonderful cafe at Barefoot Market.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now, aside from this delicious kale chip recipe I made earlier this week; and devoured within an hour! Warning, they are addicting!
Spicy Cheesy Raw Kale Chips
- 2 bunches of kale, washed and de-stemmed
- 1 cup of soaked cashews (drain after soaking)
- 1 red bell peper, chopped and de-seeded
- 1 cup of nutritional yeast (or more)
- 1 medjool date, pitted
- cajun seasoning
- sea salt
After washing and de-stemming your kale place it all in a large mixing bowl. Blend the soaked cashew, chopped bell, nutritional yeast and medjool date in a food processor until you get a creamy consistency. After that, season to your liking with cajun, paprika and sea salt.
Once your mixture is seasoned to your liking spoon out on top of the kale in the mixing bowl and mix until all the leaves are well coated. After that, place on mesh dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 115 degrees for about 5-6 hours. Now, enjoy!
