Bulk Food Order

So last week I joined a organic bulk food co-op and I received the first load of goodies. I went a little crazy with my order or so I thought. I now realized that I did not order enough berries or grapes and I wished I would have ordered the blueberries after I saw them come off the truck. We have been happily eating up our yummy produce. We have been enjoying so much I didn't even get to take pictures of it all.
12 avocados
3 pineapples
6# cucumbers
8 mangos
Not pictured
8# tomatoes
1.5# portabella mushrooms
10 peaches
3# strawberries
5# red grapes

At the end of 30 days...

I have realized I am not a daily blogger. I try but I guess this is not my passion. I am much better at making videos so I am trying to figure out how to post them on here.

I did great the first 10 days. Then my energy level began to drag. Found out out my anemia was returning so I had some cooked foods. Mostly lentils. That worked for a few days then I would have a little bit of pits with my hummus. Then I had some raw cheese, which is OK with me but I really try to not have dairy when my iron levels are down.

I lost 10 pounds and tried many new recipes. I am most comfortable at 50% raw. For me, that is the percentage that is most sustainable.

My family for now are going totally gluten free. I will let you know how it goes.
