It’s been exactly one week since I completed Natasha Kyssa’s 28-day Simply Raw Detox program. I ran into a friend and follower over the weekend and she asked if I had a big celebration to mark the end of this raw food cleanse. I told her I did. The truth is I celebrated with a bottle (well half) of kombucha and a big plate of greens and sprouts.
I feel so absolutely wonderful from eating raw foods for the past 28 days that I hesitate to veer too far away from the raw food diet. I have more energy and focus, especially during those long afternoons. My fingernails are long and strong instead of chipped and peeling and, as an added bonus, I dropped a couple of pounds. 🙂
Natasha Kyssa’s program put me back on track by breaking the bad habits I acquired over the winter months. It helped me recognize the patterns of these bad habits and the reasons for particular food cravings. The great thing now is that I have no cravings! I am eating to live and not living to eat.
Yesterday, my husband and I took our eldest daughter to an event in downtown Ottawa. When it was finished, it was about 3 pm and we were thinking of places we could stop to get a bite to eat. It was a hot and sunny day and my daughter asked for a fruit smoothie, so we stopped at the perfect place!
SimplyRaw Express is located on Wellington Street in our nation’s capital – Ottawa. Not only juices and smoothies, this quaint eatery has a good selection of salads, wraps, and desserts. Guess who made our smoothies? Natasha Kyssa!
We enjoyed a Mango Lassi, Strawberry Fields, and Peaceful Warrior smoothie and split a mexican wrap stuffed with black beans, veggies, and cilantro. Absolutely mouth-watering! I am now on a mission to replicate these flavours at home. By the way, mango and parsley are an awesome combination.
This was my treat this afternoon – to share with my husband, regrettably. 😉 This is SimplyRaw’s Mocha Cheezecake. Who needs dairy or sugar in their cheezecake? This was freakin’ delicious!
Next raw food cleanse is in October. Are you in?
