Raw Food Cleanse Day 1

Time for a change! Doing a strict raw food cleanse for one week starting today. I was feeling ready to take this on and like I wanted cleanse my body. So here we go! Please feel free to comment here and ask whatever questions you have!

2 mugs mate tea with a little raw honey--no not raw, but I love the anti-oxident boost. I may replace this with another herbal tea for the rest of the week.
1 org. apple
1 org. banana w/ 2T raw org. cashew butter
1 fresh org. veggie juice: beat, spinach, lemon, apple, ginger
Salad: organic spinach, organic alfalfa sprouts, some mild white kim chi, soaked wakame seaweed, cold-pressed olive oil and topped with pine nuts and himalayan salt!
Extra helping of kim chi with pine nuts---awesome combo!
LOTS of water
2oz wheatgrass juice
1 green GTs kombucha
Green soup (I didnt like mine, so Im giving you a recipe that I do like by Ariel Gold!): 1 packed cup chopped spinach, 1/2 medium cucumber chopped, 1/2 filtered water, 1 Tbs chopped basil, 1 Tbs miso, 1 Tbs himalayan salt, 1 green onion chopped, 1/2 avocado. Blend all ingredients except avocado until smooth, add avocado and finish blending. In the soup I added kelp noodles and wakame seaweed.
1 mug dandelion root tea

**All in all today was definitely an adjustment. Before today I have been eating moderately healthy food that was just easy. A lot of gluten-free toast! I also have not done any kind of cleanse for quite sometime so the effects of detoxing felt pretty strong today. I felt hungry this afternoon and a little tired, both effects of detoxing so I will not let that deter me. I am going to get in bed early tonight and possibly give myself an enema in the morning... to assist my body is getting rid of toxins. Please feel free to ask questions about this, its a big topic!

What kind of colon cleanse do you recommend? Does it really give you energy? I kind of want to try a detox diet but feel overwhelmed when it comes to buying all of these ingredients I've never heard of and putting them in something to make and keep me full. I am seeing a nutritionist now and already feel frustrated when I try to "understand" my food groups and what works for me.

Kim, so sorry for the delay!
Thank you for your comment. It sounds like you are feeling overwhelmed with all of the options out there. I am sure that every person that you ask about these things will give you a different opinion. In the end you will have to try something for a few weeks and if it doesnt feel right, try something else.
I do know that it doesnt have to be very expensive. Incorporating more raw foods into your diet is a very simple way to take the first step.
In my experience, I have felt a lot of energy after a cleanse/colon cleanse. I have done both an enema (at home, very inexpensive) and a colonic done by a professional. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
