Haven' t really been very raw lately. But have got lots of sunshine and lots of exercise. Midweek, I do between 1-2 hours of cardio and then I do about 1 and 1/2 hours of walking. I start the day with a 40 minute walk at 7am, and the more I do it, the easier it gets.

I've been doing a lot of cooking lately:

vegan goulash with chive dumplings

The goulash and tagine are from Louise's Pickford's 200 Veggie Feasts, and the paella and dahl are from Everyday Vegetarian (Parragon). The books aren't 100% vegan, but they can be bought really cheap. The cupcakes are from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero. I didn't have enough soy milk so they were a bit more sugary than usual. I was also out of choc chips to put on top.

To even things out a bit:

Smoothie is 1/2 pineapple, 2 bananas, 1/2 cup of OJ and 2 handfuls of mixed watercress/rocket/spinach.

I love green smoothies!

I got some Floravital (vegan Floradix- no honey) from Holland & Barrett (who are doing buy one get one half price. yay!), and some PreBio 7v probiotics. I love the taste of Floravital. Am I sick? :) I've never really tried a lot of probiotic stuff. I'd like to make my own kombucha and water kefir one day. I'll stick with the capsules for now.

In general, I'm feeling pretty damn good!
