At this point, I’m pretty sure I’ll break fast on Saturday.  Things are flowing as they should again, plus I’m ready for food… raw food.

Today, I went shopping for cashews and cold-pressed EVO (olive oil).  Having read Dr. Graham’s 80/10/10 book earlier this year while on an OJ fast, I plan to be more cautious about the heavy-on-the-nuts-and-seeds, high-fat, raw gourmet meals, and keep it simple.

I took four psyllium husk capsules first thing this morning.

Later on, I thought I kept swallowing bits of something…what, I don’t know.  Then I realized the little thing at the back of my throat (uvula) was the culprit.  It was hanging down on my tongue, as if it has stretched or something.  It’s tickling the back of my throat.  Detox? Dehydration?

In other news, I received my last fruit box of the summer season.  I signed up for a CSA delivery from Avalon Acres twenty-six weeks ago.  I started out with a Produce/Veggie Box, which was amazing!  The spinach and onions were always my faves.  As the season progressed, I would get “tougher” veggies I didn’t really care for or use that much in its raw state.  Those I would typically give away to others in the program. But fruit, I can always use!

Last fruit box of the season: muscadines, scuppernongs, pears, and apples.

Day 18:  October 31

Weight: 140.6 lbs

Today’s Intake:

24 oz lemon water

24 oz lemon water

16 oz  Green Lemonade (cuke, kale, spinach, lemon, & apple) from Whole Foods

24 oz warm acv-ginger-honey-lemon water

Total Fluids:  88 oz

Due to the hanging-uvula issue from yesterday, and doing my own “diagnosis” online, I added apple cider vinegar (ACV) into my fluids because apparently, if the tissues at the back of the throat are inflamed, it can cause such an issue.  There was also mention of being exposed to strep throat, and I have been recently.  The ACV is supposed to take care of the inflammation.

So, I attempted to juice my CSA apples, and they only made applesauce!  Trick or treat, I guess.  lol I poured it in a jar for later, after the fast.
