Right, the clock has started ticking... in less than three weeks we are off to Mauritius and seeing that I'm not one for a Burkini, I have to at least make an attempt to avoid looking like a little walrus pup on the beach, so I took matters in my own hands last week, increasing my visits to Heartcore's Xtend classes, and booking in for a few Raw Fairies deliveries before we leave.
I love Raw Fairies' delivery concept: a courier delivers my bag of food for the day around 8:00 in the morning, with all my meals for one day. I'm not doing the detox this time, just the raw food menu, so there are much less bottles than last time. It's mainly food now, and it's generally delicious. My favourites are the breakfast smoothie and the lunch salad, with the green snack smoothie coming a close third.
Today's menu has a very Asian ring to it, with a Cherry Orchard smoothie for breakfast, a veggie Pad Thai for lunch, and finally a Curried Veggies Quiche with stir fry: obviously everything is made of raw vegetables, pulses, greens, fruits and nuts, but honestly the Pad Thai felt really close to the real deal!
The thing about these menus is that whilst I am still giving my body a well-deserved break from having to digest over-processed foods and deal with breaking animal proteins for a few days, this doesn't feel like a tough diet, as I'm eating pretty yummy food throughout. Honestly I never thought I'd say this but raw food can be delicious!
Of course it helps that I'm guzzling gallons of water, hot or cold, supplemented with lemon juice or grated ginger, it fills me up and helps the cleansing process! Today's Tuesday so I've just completed two days, you wouldn't believe how lighter I feel and how clearer my skin looks already. And I'm sleeping better at night as well!
If you're London-based, you must give these magical creatures a try!
