So its finally arrived Day One of my Raw Food Cleanse - but I did sample a Raw Pizza last night and it was really good - I was surprised. I'm not actually sure what the base was but it was good. It had a cashew 'cheese' sauce, olive tapenade, and a marinara sauce on it. Very tasty.
The day started at 0700 by the pool for 'breakfast' as they call it, which was a shake which consisted of Psyllium Powder, Bentonite Clay and Magnesium Oxide - sounds gross well it wasn't pleasant but it was drinkable. I have to drink this twice daily. All these ingredients help to "get things moving" as they say......

It was then time for yoga and meditation and orientation to the program. I am more than impressed at how professional this centre is. The timetable is very comprehensive but with some free time in different parts of the day. There is going to be no time to get bored here thats for sure. Because I am on the Eat Well Programme I was given a lovely plate of papaya to eat - along with my daily detox supplements..... 19 per day...... plus a shot of colloidal silver and a Blood Pressure reading.
Daily supplements - minus the morning ones which I had already taken..
Now comes the fun part - a colema - of which I will perform every day while here. I will talk about this in another post. But I certainly feel like I have nothing left inside of me thats for sure.
The rest of the day mainly consists of smoothies/salad for lunch then a Massage along with a session in the Thai Herbal Steam Room, dinner and more supplements.

Salad for lunch with hommus
The view from the restaurant - raining and windy
Overall - even though I am only half way through my first day I feel ok so far - a little bit of a headache, which is to be expected. We will see what the rest of the week brings. So stay tuned......
