Today is the first day of April 2013! April is my favorite month of the year for many reasons, one being that it is my birthday and I am 26 in 10 days! It is also spring here in NYC and am looking forward to watching Central Park bloom! It is also when more fresh raw food is easily accessible here and oh and it is EASTER so I eat and enjoy chocolate... The Earth Diet style!
Check out the BRAND NEW DAILY RECIPES we post on the website! This was the one for today...chocolate themed of course ;)

I wanted to write this blog today because yesterday I decided to UPGRADE my health. For the month of April I want to increase my energy and shed a couple of pounds that is excess weight that kept me warm during the winter!
So I created my own program with The Earth Diet, which is also available to you!
The idea with creating my own program is that I MAKE IT WORK FOR ME,
to achieve my goals...
Here is what I wanted to achieve:
1. To stick to The Earth Diet 100% for 27 days (April 1st - 27th)
2. Alcohol free (not that I drink much but I will have sips of wine every now and then, but for these 27 days I won't be.)
3. To have majority raw vegan days
4. To do lemon water daily
5. To have a beet juice or green juice daily
6. To have orange juice daily
7. To drink PHRESH greens daily (to alkalize my body and get all the greens in)
8. To incorporate some cooked meal days
9. To incorporate some meat meals
10. To incorporate a raw dessert like chocolate daily
11. To select recipes from my favorite flavors including chicken nuggets and mac n cheese
12. To have my daily base of liquids (lemon water, juice, smoothie, juice again, phresh greens and herbal tea) and then eat meals ONLY if i am hungry. I want these liquids for cellular nutrition.
And aside from food my goal is to do yoga 7 times, zumba 4 times, go to the sauna 4 times, do a castor oil pack 4 times, and get one coffee enema (each to their own right!).
So now that I outlined what I want to achieve, AND I am excited about the food I get to eat, my rewards and of course the high on life feeling of eating such healthy life giving foods!
So once my goals were outlined, I came up with this program to realistically work with my schedule:
Monday 1st - Lemon Water (LM), then Beet Juice (BJ), then Smoothie (SM), then Orange Juice (OJ), then RAW MEAL, and then Herbal Tea (HT)
Tuesday 2nd - LM, BJ, SM, RAW MEAL, OJ, HT

Sunday 7th - LM, GJ, SM, COOKED MEAL, OJ, HT

Wednesday 24th - LM, BJ, SM, RAW MEAL, OJ, HT
Thursday 25th - LM, BJ, SM, RAW MEAL, OJ, HT
Friday 26th - LM, GJ, SM, COOKED MEAL, OJ, HT
Saturday 27th - LM, GJ, SM, RAW MEAL, OJ, HT
I have selected my favorite meals to choose from in each category:
These are the RAW MEALS I chose to choose from:
All recipes free at www.theearthdiet.com and also in the BOOK!
1. KALE SALAD
5. RAW DESSERT
6. RAW CHOCOLATE
These are the COOKED VEGAN recipes I chose to choose from:
1. BEAN PASTA
2. BROWN RICE PASTA
3. MAC N CHEESE
5. FRENCH FRIES
These are my MEAT recipes I am choosing from:
1. ROAST CHICKEN
2. CHICKEN WINGS
3. CHICKEN NUGGETS
4. TED BURGER
5. EGG OMELETTE
6. CHICKEN CURRY
7. SALMON TERIYAKI
And this means in 27 days I will have...
- 19 full raw days
- 8 days where I can incorporate cooked meat meals
- I would have consumed 27 lemon waters
- 27 beet or green juice
- 27 orange juices
- 27 smoothies
- 27 green drinks (PHRESH GREENS)
- which means 27 days of sooo many NUTRIENTS!!!!!!!!
Then I set myself rewards, and what made me excited is to have one reward per day to hold me accountable to sticking to my program. Rewards for me include purchasing a new vegan handbag I have my eye on, buying a trip out of the state to see Black Keys in concert, going to the movies, eating out at my favorite raw food restaurants in NYC, to get a facial, massages etc. So each day that I stick to my program I reward myself.
