14 days raw foods detox challenge – day 11

Not much to say about today, except how essential a good breakfast is!
I usually belong to those people who can’t eat after getting up, it makes my tummy hurt. During this detox I began to have those nice breakfast smoothies that filled me up for a long time.
Since I had to get up at 4am this morning, I had a very rich smoothie and I’m glad I had it.
It contained strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, spinach, organic oats and almond milk.

When I left home, it was about 5am, dark and cold outside, yikes. I was about to have a couple of hours in my car laying before me. Due to this long day of travels, not knowing where and when I would get a proper, vegan appropriate meal, I packed some carrots and a banana along with a big bottle of non-sparkling water, just in case. As it turned out, no place to eat anywhere.
I got off work at around 6pm, so I had no intention on working on fancy food anymore, I simply tossed all leftovers together: mache, dried tomatoes, pecans, roasted red pepper, basil, guacamole.
I already apologize to anyone sitting near me on the plane tomorrow morning – there has been garlic in my salad :-D

As already said, there’s a lot of traveling this week, so eating raw will be even more of a challenge the next days. Luckily, I will be able to go shopping for fresh fuel tomorrow as soon as I got off the plane to have all necessary greens.
For tomorrow morning, I tried something I found in the great depths of the world wide web: chia pudding.
Put chia seeds in a bowl, added almond milk and raspberries. Filled it up completely with almond milk (no picture of that, yet. Will come tomorrow morning!) and set in the fridge so the seeds can soak up all the almond milk. I’m very curious what it will be like! Update will follow!
If you have any experience with chia seeds, please let me know, it would be of great help.
