Day #10 The Raw Food Muscle Fitness Challenge

September 10, 2010

I just returned from the Incredible Edible enormous spread at Chinsegut Park.  What an amazing experience that was!  This event happens once a year in Brooksvile.  The volunteers and staff harvest wild food all year long and prepare it for everyone to enjoy.  They had an array of beautiful and nutritious food, including wild greens, pancakes made with Black Walnut and Persimmon Syrup, Wild Grape Jam, Sumac-ade, Wild Grape Juice, Tread Softly cooked with Cactus, they even had venison burgers and wild hog stew.  I tried several of the treats and we brought home several dishes for Jason to try.  The kids and Grandpa had fun and I just LOVED it.  I want to go back to the next one.  I will be making some Sumac Tea in the next few days, and I have plenty of Spanish Needle in my yard to keep my Green Smoothies amped with Wild Raw Yumminess!

There are so many foods right near my home that are edible.  The Spanish Needle can be used in salads and the flowers can be eaten or used for tea.

The Beauty Berries were used for jelly and can also be used for tea.  I have always been told that the beauty berries are poisonous.  But I had some jelly tonight and I am doing okay;-)

Sumac is beautiful and so are the Wild Grapes.  They are both out this time of year (September).

This was my plate, so as you can see I ate some cooked stuff and I ate processed ingredients.  I haven’t done this in so long.  Right now I feel okay, but who knows about tomorrow.  I didn’t eat all of this plate, I saved it for Jason, but I did have 3 persimmon and wild hickory nut cookies, and I really don’t know how they were made.

I would say that I overate FOR SURE. My food choices were pretty much the same as yesterday, but ate some stuff not on the plan, I won’t dwell on it. The Incredible Edible experience was something different and something I have been waiting for.

Day #10 Exercise: My exercise was good today.  I did legs and back at the gym.

3 sets 15 reps of each exercise
Warm up
Squats, superset with plie squats on smith machine with 20 lbs. then one arm rows with 30 lb. dumbbells
Straight leg deadlifts with 30 lb dumbbells followed by T bar row machine with 25 lbs.
pushups superset smith machine pullups
Wide grip pulldowns with 80 lb dumbbells
*I am forgetting one leg exercise and one back. I am really tired.


Well, I am off to sleep. Goodnight. Hope to be completely raw tomorrow.
