So my Raw Food Cleanse Day 1 is coming to an end - it feels good, although I am feeling tired now - to be expected on raw food cleanse day 1. We can expect to feel a little groggy the first few days as the body detoxes, headaches and tiredness is normal although it shouldn't be overwhelming. But just you wait until that has cleared - you will be jumping for joy.
I am not expecting to feel too much of this as my diet is high raw anyway so should not be too many detox symptoms... although I did go a little off the rails over the holiday period - well, we will wait and see
So this was my second drink for the raw food cleanse..........
What Is In My Raw Food Cleansing Drink?
- A whole melon
- 1 medium cucumber
- about 1 - 1/2 cups of mixed berries
Strange combination I hear you say? Well no not really, you see, cucumber and melon are from the same family and so give us similar qualities.
Melons and cucumbers have amazing cooling abilities, great on a hot day and even better for my raw food cleanse day 1, it can calm the emotions too, they inevitably show up as we are shifting so much on all levels (holistic) with all that work going on inside the body the cooling is great for our whole being.
Melon Perfect for Raw Food cleanse Day 1
Melons are perfect for raw food cleanse day 1 because there is nothing better for cleansing flushing, feeding and hydrating!
Tons of minerals in these babies, zinc and potassium - wonderful for skin, hair and nails. The rind contains most of the nutrients so it is perfect for juicing.
Who needs beauty products? You will find no better skin purifier than melon and cucumber. High water content, great for flushing out those toxins and keeping us hydrated.
The cucumber gives us much the same, again perfect for our skin, more chlorophyll in the skin, refreshes elasticity in the skin too.
Raw Food Cleanse Day 1 - Beautiful Berries - Powerful Antioxidants
Berry berry delicious, perfect for our raw food cleanse and a great complement to this drink. Vitamins
- life giving nutrients and antioxidants!
Raw Food Cleanse Day 1 - Pineapple Juice
I chose pineapple because I woke with a sore throat and the sniffles this morning, I wont be having any of that! Really quite normal as I am shifting any mucus!
My Raw food green juice this morning with its garlic and ginger should help with that, but my pineapple will dissolve and sweep away any lurking mucus. Pineapple is awesome for our digestion - helps to digest proteins, and restores our alkaline levels.
This fantastic raw food is great for anyone suffering with asthma or hay fever and of course the sniffles 😉
Lots more water and herb tea and then my last call before bed will be cinnamon and apple - more sweeping and cleansing
