Raw vegan newbie chronicles #1

I figured I will keep blogging about my raw vegan journey. I’m new to it so I’m bound to make mistakes, why not document them. 
I started the day with a green juice that had a bunch of celery, one lemon, 2 cloves of garlic, a broccoli stalk and some cayenne pepper.

For lunch I had zucchini noodles with an avocado sauce:
Zucchini noodles with olives, hearts of palm, sun dried tomatoes, and chopped scallions.
For the avocado sauce I blended 1 avocado with lemon juice from 1/2 of a lemon, 1 celery stalk, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 of a golden tomato, chopped leaks, nutritional yeast, Trader Joe’s 21 season salute. I sprinkled kelp seasoning, ground pepper and dill weed on top. Delicious 😋

I tasted the zucchini noodles before adding the sauce and it tasted really good. Although I liked the dish, honestly I feel it would have been better if I just chopped up half of the avocado and put it in with the noodles and other ingredients. 

I think the sauce would have been better if I just used half of the avocado. I’m trying not to use salt but I can tell it’s missing. I just have to find a healthier substitute. I do have Himalayan pink salt but I hear both good and bad about it. I’m going to try dulse flakes as a salt substitute and see how I like it.

I’m considering going back to juicing for this month, maybe not the whole month, I haven’t decided yet. I really feel I introduced fats back into my diet too soon and I over did it. 

My digestion is really taking a beating. I feel like I need a colonic or at least an enema.  

I think another thing is during the fruit feast I was eating a lot of mono meals and now I’m combining all these vegetables together with sauce and although the end product is delicious, my digestion isn’t prepared. 

I want to remain mostly fruitarian and get my greens in the form of green juices and smoothies. I don’t want to get caught up with complicated meals with multiple ingredients. Simple one or two ingredient meals are better for my digestion.
