Playing catch up as usual...

Well, I finished making my raw rendition of a coconut, key-lime pie, and I have to say it was pretty darn good. It could have used some more lime juice, but I did use about 14-16 key limes as it crust was the favorite of my friends and family who tried it. It had to be from the coconut flakes, and lime zest I used with the mac nuts...very yummy!

After the pie deal, I started thinking more and more about drinking my green juice again, since I've been eating a lot of high fatty raw foods lately, and feeling bloated. So, I mixed it up over the past few days - smoothies, green juices, and salads, with a few snacks here and definately has been making the difference.

I also have been reading a lot of raw blogs lately (more than usual), as well as reading my raw books (not just the recipes), "Rawsome Food", and "Ani's Raw Food Kitchen". Great information, and inspiration!

My back is feeling better...I actually rode the recumbant bike tonight, and did some back stretches. I still have to take it easy...I'm still suffering from sciatica, just not as crippling as it has been.

Well, I want to write more, but as usual, I'm cutting it short due to the time of day it is - night!

So, until next time...hopefully soon...have a wonderful evening, and a terrific tomorrow!
