My view at 7:30am in NYC
Today was a busy day! It started early and had a lot of scheduled Skype and phone meetings throughout the day. So I started by going to Wholefoods on Columbus Circle NYC and I ate from their buffet, I had organic breakfast potatoes, chicken sausage and bacon with a fresh baked bread roll. Wholefoods called it a heart breakfast - it certainly was! I had a green tea with it to help with the digestion. Antioxidants are helpful to digest a heavier meal.
Later as I was working my lovely friend Roxxe made me her summer specialty! Mango pulp with sparkling water and fresh lime. Amazing. Refreshing.
For lunch I had avocado on organic spelt bread freshly baked from Wholefoods. With some real salt and pepper - yum.
For an afternoon snack I enjoyed this cup of coconut milk ice cream with chunks of raw chocolate!
After I finished my skype calls (hiring new Health Coaches to prepare for the book launch) - I went for a 2 hour walk to Central Park which was so so so refreshing. Found love in this leaf.
I decided not to have dinner since I had some heavier meals today, so I ended the day with a huge glass of water with fresh lime and a calming jasmine tea. This is an easy way for us to do a light daily detox. Speaking of detox, I am a bonus speak for the Detox Summit with over 30 expert speakers including Dr Mark Hyman!

Started the day with oil pulling using sesame seed oil. Great way to draw toxins out. More info on oil pulling here https://m.facebook.com/TheEarthDiet/posts/604975182868598
Then I had some green juice with celery and kale from the garden. Super nutrient rich. Pure medicine.
Then I had some cashew cheesecake pop, the last one from batch I made this week. This recipe is in the new book.
Later I had some raw chocolate from Raw Chocolate Man.
For dinner I ate at Bareburger again! 3rd time this week well obviously I am excited about finding this organic restaurant chain!
For dessert I had some organic candy, fruit roll ups. Which is better if I make it myself using just fruit so I plan to make a huge batch next week.
I wrote my weekly update email to all subscribers, I am excited to announce the month of August is the month of giving! We are giving away 5,000 books to people in a health crisis, people who cannot afford the book or people who just want to receive a gift. http://www.theearthdiet.org/request-a-free-book.html

Started the day with fresh organic orange juice from Juice Generation near Columbus Circle NYC.
Then had organic breakfast from Josie's.
eggs, bacon, potatoes and muffin.
And Ice Cream made with Rice Milk. Amazing.
Then later visited Juice N Blendz also in Babylon on the same street, where I had a Beet Juice with beets, celery, cucumber, lemon and ginger.
Ate some raw chocolate and cashew cheesecake (that I made a few days ago) in between,
And then had 4 organic free range chicken wings for dinner, baked in the oven cooked with hot sauce and nutritional yeast.
Had a lot of protein today, as well as sweets and antioxidants. Of course drinking lots of water all day everyday.
Some days we want to eat more than other days - that's natural! A good reminder is to "be with your body when it is digesting each meal."
95 days to book launch! Last day to pre-order the book from Amazon this week and get a 12 minute Skype call with me :)

I started the day with liquids! Liquids are a great way to get nutrition instantly to the cells!! I had a superfood smoothie, aka cherries, water, almond butter, maca, honey and cacao powder. Also had a Phresh Greens. And a green tea. I drank in order of Phresh Greens to alkalize my body, and then the green tea and then the smoothie! Love this nourishing combination.
I had a bite of raw chocolate for morning tea. And then for lunch I had this raw pistachio cookie with raspberry icing! From One Lucky Duck.
My second lunch was this raw Snickers Cake also from One Lucky Duck. So delicious. I can't believe how they make this cake RAW!
I had some meetings and then made it to a high rise apartment for an Earth Diet Margarita made with lime juice, tequila, coconut sugar and real salt!
Then I went to Bare Burger with friends on 366 West 46 street NYC 10036. I started with this organic blueberry soda - you can of course add alcohol if you want - Bareburger has organic tequila :)
Their policy is amazing, and they educate people on organic lifestyle with their flyers. Why organic?
Had a great balance of liquid cellular nutrition today, along with protein and antioxidants.

Started the day with cashew cheesecake, with pecans. It's so creamy because I soaked the pecans which are soft anyway, and used a Vitamix. This recipe is one of my favorites and mostly used! It's in the new book :)
Did an hour of grounding exercise outside, such a beautiful hot sunny day in New York! Then had green juice. Feels like medicine for the human body.
Had sushi for dinner, I just love how vibrant this bento box is. The variety, and the colors. Such a fun experience. I just wish sushi restaurants used cleaner ingredients, I haven't seen too many around yet that use organic ingredients, non-gmo soy, who don't put white sugar in the rice, or use sugar or corn syrup in their sauces. Lets do everyone a favor and ask at our local sushi places to switch to more organic ingredients :)
I drank a lot of green tea with this dinner to help with the digestion process! Antioxidants after a heavier meal can help a lot.
Had plenty of phone and Skype call meetings today regarding the Earth Diet book launch! Found out the book is being launched in Australia in February so that's exciting. Called my Nanna who said good it's about time you visited home! And "send me more postcards!" Haha.
Also made some cashew cheesecake and cashew lavender ice cream pops! Excited to try one of these over the weekend!

When people start the Earth Diet some like the one-meal-a-day concept. Try it and see if you like it, maybe you will, maybe you won't. I do it whenever my schedule allows and it works great for me.
The idea is to plan for one big solid meal during the day, and then graze for the other meals by in taking juices, waters, smoothies, fruits, small snacks.
Today I had a one meal kind of day!
I started with oil pulling using sesame seed oil.
Then I made a mango smoothie with ingredients: mango, hemp milk (water, hemp seeds and vanilla).
Then I had some green tea and raw chocolate, knowing that I would eat a nice solid dinner.
I also went to the garden and ate some straight up kale leaves for super nutrients.
Then I made some cashew ice cream and proud to say I finally nailed the consistency! It's so creamy and amazing. Recipe is in my new book :)
Then I had a big protein dinner that was so fulfilling. It was baked organic chicken cooked in coconut oil, hot sauce and nutritional yeast. Then cooked some brown rice pasta and added that to the oven bake.
This can be such a fulfilling way to eat, and it also gives your digestive system a break from having to work all day long. So people usually experience an increase of energy with the one meal a day concept!

Today I declared a day off for me, and decided to go to Six Flags my favorite theme park in New Jersey. I love thrill rides and being around people who hold the intention of having a fun day! It's important we have a good balance of work, rest and pleasure.
I started the day with organic cherries and the scent of stimulating lavender!
Then I had a berry smoothie made with almond milk (recipe in my new book), strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, honey, maca, cacao and almond butter.
On the drive to the theme park I saw this truck, for people in New York who want an organic lawn this is amazing! Www.JonathanGreen.com
I got some snacks from Trader Joes including this Lara bar, Peanut Butter cookie. Do you love how this bar has just 3 ingredients: peanuts, dates and real salt. Super clean eating!
A day off for me also consists of working haha because this is my purpose and mission and I love it! So I had some phone call meetings for the Earth Diet Marketing and preparing for the Cancer Summit and Detox Summit I am a speaker at online - you can register free at www.TheDetoxSummit.com and www.TheCureToCancerSummit.com
Today I also brought this organic candy which is essentially a fruit roll up - this is a huge upgrade to candy! You can of course make your own by puréeing fruit and then dehydrating for 10 hours. I made sure to have snacks today so that I wouldn't crave the junk they sell at the theme park - unfortunately these places don't offer natural alternatives yet.
Really enjoyed some of my favorite rides at six flags today! The smell of burgers at this theme park had me craving this for dinner so we left for Bare Burger in NJ a new organic burger restaurant! On the way we enjoyed some raw IAM affirmation chocolate made by Raw Chocolate Man.
I am so blown away by Bare Burger! They already have 8 locations! Check out www.BareBurger.com and check out their policy - this is so exciting to see such conscious healthy restaurants!
Not the cleanest day of eating, some heavier foods in there so I will start the day tomorrow with a Green Juice!
