HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE! I hope you all had a great and safe night. I myself had a quiet night. I've always gone out on new years or I've been working, and I had the chance for once to have a very quiet and serene New Years by myself. My friends all think I'm crazy! lol. I just hung out by myself and watched a few movies I had been wanting to see. Very peaceful.....

So anyways, today seems as good of a day as any to start going raw, so that's what I did! I woke up this morning and had a nice green juice (kale, lemon, apple, carrot, celery) with spirulina in it. It was my first time trying spirulina so we'll see how that goes. The taste really wasn't all that bad. I have never had kale in my juice before, but i couldn't even taste it. The lemon kind of overpowered everything. I'm not really hungry yet, but i'll probably have some fruit later on in the day, a salad, and then a salad and steamed veggies for dinner (not going 100% raw because I don't want to detox too badly!).
So yesterday I went to the health food store in the city. I was a little disappointed. They didn't really have anything raw. It was all just organic. I found the spirulina and that was kind of it. I kind of live in the boonies in between a town and a city (it's about 15 minutes to either one, so it's no big deal). So then I went into town to their health food store, and I was a bit more impressed. They had a wider variety of "niche" foods, and more raw options. I am actually impressed with my local grocery store as well. They had a bunch of raw items in the bulk bin. I used to work for that grocery store and never noticed! lol. So I got a few things to try, but I am mostly just keeping it simple.

Hi Janna! HAPPY NEW RAW YEAR! I saw your blog listed on Gone Raw. I am 22 years old. I too, have decided I would go RAW for the new year. It's nice to have someone starting at the same time with the same enthusiasm as I have. I will continue to read your blog as it will add support. I'd like it if we could keep in touch. ;o) I will also be looking for your posts on Gone Raw. We can do this! ;o)
