Hey there my friends,
It’s Byron… Annett’s husband. AKA “Spicy Brown!” I have hi-jacked the blog today while Annett is away training (Hee hee). Back by popular demand, we are going to do two weeks of eating RAW, and I would love for you to join us. I have hi-jacked the kitchen too, so you gotta do what I say!
Below is this weeks’ simple 5 day meal plan. There are only 5 meals. You can mix and match to use for both lunch and dinner all of this week. Or you can just do lunch or dinner. It’s totally up to you. I don’t want to make it too extreme, but let’s have some fun with it. Try the meals, and share your comments in the comments area. If you have RAW recipes that you’d like to share please do.
Our family will be doing this for a least two weeks. I will also be experimenting with some breakfast smoothies that are simple, fast and full of flavor but low in sugar (I will share the best of the bunch on Friday… so stay tuned).
OK… enough of me talking (I think I hear Annett coming through the door).
