Raw: Day 47 - EASTER

I made it! I am so surprised with how disciplined I was! I only had a few cooked food items, and I felt like they didn't taste as good as my raw food.

My first non-raw item was actually stale Cheez-Its after I got home late from Middle of the Map. They didn't taste good; I just ate them because I could. :)

Sunday morning coffee! The biggest surprise to myself about the raw food diet was I actually didn't crave coffee. The only day I really wanted it was Good Friday, but I knew I could make it two more days.

I had a bag of Peet's coffee in a box on top of my refridgerator all through Lent. My brother gave me a 3-month coffee tour for Easter and the final bag arrived just before Lent started. I was thrilled to have my favorite coffee to break my raw food and coffee fast. Thanks bro and sis-in-law!

7 am Easter service at Jacob's Well.

I wish I could have captured the beautiful light shining through the stained glass windows. It was glorious.

 I saw a picture of a Belgian Waffle a couple of weeks ago. Since then, it's really been the only food I thought I would like to have on Easter. I didn't know Beer Kitchen had them, so I was thrilled when I saw it on the menu!

And here it is!

Easter dinner with the family.

I made Thai coleslaw as my contribution. Everyone thought it was great and my 92-year-old grandmother asked for seconds and leftovers to take home.

Asparagus, deviled eggs, pasta salad, fruit, and bread.

Note the bunny-ears napkin fold. :)

Stay tuned for my top quick and easy recipes!
