Crazy Sexy Day Seventeen

This morning started with another 16-ounce glass of Urban Zen green juice made with cucumbers, Granny Smith and Fuji apples, fennel, yellow peppers, spinach, ginger, romaine, and celery. But green juice looks like, well, green juice. And you've seen plenty over the past 16 days, so I'll spare ya.

Mid-morning, I snacked on another bowl of Food for Life Sprouted Grain Cereal with unsweetened So Delicious Coconut Milk. I've shown several bowls of this cereal already, but here's the box in case anyone is wondering what it looks like. Yes, this contains wheat and the cleanse is gluten-free. But sprouted grain is supposed to be easier to digest so I'm allowing it:

Lunch was more Olive Quesadillas from Crazy Sexy Diet. They're made with kalamata olives, roasted red pepper, caramelized onions, Daiya, and gluten-free tortillas. This time, I topped them with quick cheater guacamole (avocado mixed with lime juice and some garlic powder):

I also had another Salad with Raw Ranch Dressing from Crazy Sexy Diet:

Before hitting the gym, I snacked on more Tomato-Basil Flatbread and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, but no picture. Sorry!

And I need to apologize in advance for my crappy dinner photos. My friends and I went to Imagine Vegan Cafe tonight, and I forgot my Nikon. So I used my iPhone camera's flash because it was dark in there. I love the iPhone camera in good lighting, but the flash sucks.

Anyway, I ordered the Eggless Egg Salad without a bun, so they served it on lettuce. And my sides were Steamed Broccoli with Imagine's homemade vegan cheese sauce:

And another Salad with Vegan Ranch. This ranch is one of my favorite things at Imagine. They make it in-house, and it's delicious!

Only four more days left on the Crazy Sexy Diet! I feel great. Light. Clean. And when I have energy, it feels like real food-fueled energy. But I'm still getting tired very early, and I know it's got something to do with the lack of sufficient caffeine. I need one big cup of coffee in the morning, and that gets me through the entire day. I'm ready to have that back. And a slice of pie would be nice too.

Oooh, I really need to get/make some vegan ranch! All of your salds with ranch are making me hungry for it! Also, that quesadilla looks awesome. I want that right now!

I am feeling more and more guilt every time I read these posts. I feel like such a slug! A dairy- and simple carbs-consuming slug!

Mmmm, that raw ranch dressing looks tasty.
