Well, it's been six weeks now and now being raw just seems normal. I don't have any cravings for things like bread or meat - which I really thought I would. The skin on my hands where I had the rash has grown back baby soft and beautiful. Mind you, now I have a small blemish on my right cheek that has been there for about two weeks, which now seems to be going away as I've been putting wheat grass juice on it for the last two days. That treatment was recommended by Miguel and Cafe Gratitude. My husband is almost totally raw now too and he's really getting into it! I'm so surprised as I really never thought he would be into it. One of the things that we both noticed is that..........your shit really doesn't stink anymore. So we don't just think it, it is a fact..........try it and you'll see.
Here is a recipe for my coconut shake. This is what we drink first thing in the morning after the lemon juice and cayenne pepper drink and it is by far my favorite shake ever!
Shobhan's Creamy Coconut Delight Shake
Recipe By : Chef Shobhan
Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:05
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 young coconut
1 tablespoon spirulina
1 tablespoon chlorella
2 tablespoons maca
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 tablespoons raw hemp protein powder
Cut the top off the coconut and drain the water into your blender. Then cut open the coconut with a meat cleaver or something equally strong and scoop out the meat of the coconut and put it in the blender.
Add all the rest of the ingredients plus at least eight ounces of pure water or almond milk and blend until very smooth.
If this is too thick add more water. Drink and enjoy!
"Delicious high protein morning shake"
NOTES : All of these ingredients are superfoods. Chlorella is very high in protein and cholorphyll, it also helps the body detoxify from heavy metals such as cadmium (which is found in cigarette paper and also receipts) and mercury.
Spirulina is high in amino acids and contains many vitamins and minerals essential for us everyday.
Maca is helpful in balancing both male and female hormones and is great for memory and energy.
