Raw Food Phase 2 Day 23 - Mostly Fruits - Creative Recipes

Hello, Today I have eaten mostly fruits all day long. It has been refreshing and I did not experience a sugar high at all. I started the day off with a bunch of grapes. I did not feel like eating them so I juiced them. I hope to create the same recipe tomorrow for breakfast because it was so yummy. :) It happened to be a creative day as far as recipes go. I created a few of them which I would like to share with you.

Today I got a very nice compliment from a nurse that calls me every 3 months. She is tied into my health benefits at work and we have been talking for about 5 to 6 years. Anyway she said that she does not know of anyone who could do more for their health than I am doing. It is nice to hear what people think of my efforts.
