Raw Fruit Detox (Day 1 Recap)

With Day One under my belt, I’m feeling very confident about the week ahead adn wanted to give you my Raw Fruit Detox (Day 1 Recap). Aside from the nagging caffeine withdrawal, I’m actually enjoying myself quite a bit.  It wasn’t until late in the day (around 4pm), when I’m usually taking back my third or forth cup of joe, that I noticed a throbbing headache setting in.  It lasted throughout the night, tempting me to head for my coffee pot.  I stayed strong though, knowing that it wouldn’t last.  As of this morning, it’s beginning to let up, hinting that the worst is over with.

Surprisingly though, coffee was the only thing I felt I was lacking.  Fruit (and fruit alone) propelled me throughout the day as if I hadn’t missed a beat (or a veggie).  As I recall reading from others who have done a fruit cleanse, they mentioned an increase in energy.  So far, I can say that this has been true for me too.  I honestly thought that not having coffee would put me in a slump, but I’m bouncing along just fine!

Now let me get to the good stuff.  You probably wanna know what I ate, my weight, and all that goodness.

  • Total: $5.77

Dinner:  Whole Fruits

I stopped in at Whole Foods Market to have dinner with my mother.  I thought that they would have a great selection of fruits.  I was right!  This did add quite a bit to the total price for the day, though.  It is much cheaper to buy and slice your own fruit at home.  But I refuse to eat every meal at home.

  • Total:  $10.00
  • Daily Totals
  • Calories: 2,431
  • Protein: 27.5 grams
  • Total Price: $21.77

I would be pretty nervous if I were going to have to spend that kind of money each day. Luckily, I don’t plan on eating out anymore this week. It’s just not worth it to me when I can enjoy all of my fresh fruits at home. Besides, I’ve got a Vitamix Blender that will emulsify my fruits into delicious smoothies.

did find a tea to replace my coffee (using the word“replace” lightly).  It may not have the jolt of coffee, but it tastes great and is made with all natural ingredients, including:  African Rooibos, Hibiscus Flowers, Lemon Verbena, Orange Peel, Rosemary, and Lemon Balm.  The rooibos is caffeine-free and delivers a calming effect to the nervous system.

With Day 1 complete, it’s on to Day 2.  I can’t wait to see what this day has to offer.  I may try and get out to the produce market today to see what fresh fruits they have available.  I hope to come up with some exciting fruit recipes that will have you jumping through the screen for a taste.  I’m thinking Fresh Orange Ice, made with organic oranges and lemon juice!  We’ll see what happens…Got a fruit you would like me to focus on for a day?  Let me know below!
