Partial Raw....Day 5....Not So Partial

I can't believe the weekend is already over. I didn't do so hot with my partial raw day today. I started off good with this fruit salad for breakfast, but it went down hill afterwards. My fruit salad consisted of a kiwi, half a banana, have a pear, half a Clementine, and a few walnuts. I juiced the other half of the Clementine and drizzled it over the fruit. I thought I would try something different than a smoothie this morning. :o) I didn't take a picture of my lunch. I took my mom out to eat after church today. She hasn't had a burger in a while, so I took her to Red Robin's, where I got a Boca burger. I was going to get a salad, but I LOVE their Boca burgers, so I wimped out on my raw lunch. When I got home Maggie and I curled up on the couch and watched a movie. I was feeling a little on the lazy side this afternoon. I guess because I did so much around the house yesterday. I did however make Maggie some treats this afternoon. Molly over at VeganFlower posted some coconut muffins the other day that sounded really good. Maggie's never had coconut before, but I just knew she would like these, and I was right on....she LOVED them. If you've never made any of Molly's treats for your dogs, you need to check out her recipes and make some. Maggie has loved everything I have made of hers. You can find the recipe here.

Here's Maggie taking a bite of the muffin...ever so gently..... Here she is saying "YUM...YUM....YUM!" It only took me about 10 tries to get a couple half way descent pictures of her. All she wanted was more muffin...forget pictures. :o)

Supper was spaghetti with Newman's Own Roasted Red Pepper sauce with a little spinach added. Tomorrow there will be something from my new raw cookbook posted. :o)



  1. that second pic of Maggie is AWESOME! so funny:)

    your fruit salad is so pretty! i love the walnuts on top.

  2. Saying you "wimped out" for lunch sounds so negative! I'm sure that Boca burger was delicious!

    I have terrible luck photographing my pets. Kudos to your commitment ;-)

  5. Hey there is always the next day. Don't be so hard on yourself. You ate better than most people. I find if I plan or soak everything at night, I have to make it the next day no matter what. This keeps me on track. Oh by the way I am new here. Nice blog.

  6. Well, at least you had a raw breakfast, that's good!


  7. Maggie looks made for cuddling with while watching a movie. If my pups weren't so pudgy I'd bake them some muffins too.

  8. The fruit salad looks really yummy. And and the plate of pasta is calling my name; I think we'll have pasta tonight. Raw or not, sometimes you just need to eat what sounds good.

    Thanks for the Maggie pics! I got my cute fix for the day. :)

  9. Oh, I just loooove those pics of Maggie! I just want to squeeze her. Don't be hard on yourself with the raw stuff; at least you're trying.

  10. Maggie looks like she's really enjoying those muffins! How's she doing with the chiro visits?

    I would wimp out for a burger lunch too, don't feel bad.

  11. Thanks so much for the shout out! I adore both pictures of Maggie. Cuteness!

    Your breakfast looks really good and I don't think you wimped out at all. That's still quite healthy compared to a lot of things you could eat! :)

  12. Thanks everyone!

    Sasha - good idea about preparing the night before. I need to start doing that. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :o)

    Jessica - Maggie is doing better. She is due back to the Chiro. I need to try to take some pictures the next time I take her, which will probably be next week.

  13. Love that 2nd photo of Maggie!
    What a little babe!!
