I felt hungry around noon so I had my organic grapefruit and a tall glass of warm lemon water.

Lemon water is great to drink for so many healthy reasons. It helps your bowels to eliminate naturally and easily. Lemons are high in potassium, vitamin C, calcium and magnesium.

Day 1 of My Vegan Diet: Breakfast

For breakfast on my first day of my 14 day vegan diet, I had 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with some crunchy peanut butter. This Ezekiel bread is really delicious and healthy. It’s made with 100% sprouted whole grains. It’s basically, flour less!

This bread was inspired by the holy scripture verse Ezekiel 4:9:

    “Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side.”

I call it my holy bread. I love to eat it with peanut butter. Peanut butter is very healthy. However, not all peanut butters can measure up. The only ingredients your peanut butter should have is peanuts with or without salt.

On the serious side, take a look at your peanut butter ingredient label. If there are ingredients listed other than salt and peanuts, dump it! You don’t need the additives.

Take a look at this popular brand Jif which claims to be the #1 choice of mom’s. Its loaded with different types of hydrogenated oils and sugars.

This is my peanut butter. Look at the difference. Need I say more!

Vegan Cupcakes!

I stopped in at Sprinkles Cupcake for a vegan cupcake. My detox begins on Monday, so a little indulgence this weekend won’t hurt. At least it’s a vegan cupcake. Next week, I’m abstaining from sugary foods and beverages, caffeine, carbs, and animal protein. I’m excited to start My 14 Day Vegan Diet/Detox.
