Grapefruit, grapefruits, I love grapefruits, Day Three

I've quite surprised myself. I thought for sure I'd be tired of grapefruits by now, but I'm not. Nonetheless, I've very happy about eating my normal, but increbile raw food fare tomorrow. Today I felt tired still, but a bit better than yesterday, yet, I still had some bursts of energy when I had to try to contain myself, lol. During the morning I had a slight headache, but that's normal for detoxing.

After I did Pilates with one of my sisters, we made ourselves some fresh grapefruit juice (above) and enjoyed with a striped straw while we read more of Frodo and Sam's beginning of adventures as they travelled to Buckland. It was so refreshing! I loved the way it got all foamy at the top. I just scooped out the fruit and put in the Vita-Mix and then added a tad of water.

Tomorrow my Mom and sisters and I will be going to the city to shop, shop, shop. Sigh, I love "Girl's Day" out; although with the way we shop we're always racing, never a moment to stop and take a breather. We're the speedy shopper girls! We live about an hour and a half from any city so you can imagine how we stock up on goods and produce. We're far from any good stores so the entire day is spent in necessary things, although on the way home we usually enjoy something cheap to eat on the go (my favourite is Booster Juice, although not exactly cheap).

Tonight I made coconut milk (for the first time) and then cookies out of the pulp with chocolate on top. I'll post pictures tomorrow, when I can actually eat a cookie (but they do look good, impatient sigh) Till then.

Guess what? The other day when I went to the grocery store to pick up some grapefruits, my mom beat me to them! She had actually planned on buying grapefruits the same day I wanted too and we haven't had a grapefruit in like two years, isn't that weird?

Your grapefruit juice looks very refreshing, I think I'd like it.

Can't wait to see how your "cookies" turned out!
