Start of a new RAW week!

So my husband has agreed to do all raw dinners this week - Monday through Friday. I'm planning on giving him a green smoothie for dinner and then hopefully find some raw desserts to make for him too. I don't want him falling back on cookies or candy or ice cream or anything not raw for this week. It's an experiment to see how we can help his heart burn at night. It's doing way better with the fruit juice for breakfast but we still aren't up to 100% with it. He says he wants to try to have it under control without meds by October when we go to Disney World. I really, truly believe it will help him a lot, but the real question will be if he will have the will power to do the raw dinners. He's going to have his choice of whatever he wants for lunch at work. If he wants to go out, fine, if he wants to bring stuff from home, fine. It's all up to him.

But breakfasts will be juice (strawberry, pineapple, grapefruit, romaine, tomato, cucumber, orange, pear, plum, watermelon mix). For the green in my green smoothies, I picked up a collection of kale, collard greens, romaine, and a spring mix. Fruits will probably be just bananas, strawberry and honeydew melon. Everything else is a little too much for my cruddy blender and we'll be left with ickie chunks. I'm so excited for this week and I'm going to be STRONG and not give in when he pouts and wants other food. This is just an experiment for one week! We can make it through one week without cooked dinners. I'm also hoping for no wine! No alcohol! No beer! That one is always a mighty big struggle. Wine just makes dinner so much more enjoyable.

But I don't care how much he pouts, how much he begs, whines, makes sad faces. He's eating the danged green smoothies and staying raw after work. It's just one week! We can do it!
