Day #1 Raw Food 2014

Day #1 of my 100 day raw food and fitness journey began this morning at 12am. I had a large green smoothie for breakfast and some kale chips. For lunch I had a green salad with a very tasty dressing that I made (see below for list of ingredients). I also had some more kale chips and a glass of filtered water. I spiralized some yellow squash for my dinner this evening. I will have this with a tomato sauce that I will make with tomato's, evoo, dried basil, and fresh squeezed lemon. At the moment, I have a slight headache but no cravings. I wonder how I will deal with snacks once I get tired of eating kale chips (lol). I like eating fresh fruit but find that I sometimes get burned out on the few pieces of fruit that are available in my area during the winter months. I have a couple of raw food recipe books but it seems like they are so difficult to create. I look forward to the warmer climate for the variety.
