Week One - Getting Equipped

Ok so I've done a load of internet research, listened to Tony Robbins 'Living Health', ordered stacks of books on Amazon and booked myself in to a Raw Food night with cooking demonstrations. After doing some recipe research I realised that I'm going to need to change my pantry quite a bit. I don't have any of these ingredients, yikes! I do have lots of amazing Organic fruit and veg though and plan to delve into that in the meantime. I've also invested in a Juicer and have been having that for breakfast. It's delish!

Carrot, Apple & Celery Juice

3 Carrots
1 Granny Smith Apple
1 Celery Stem
100 grams of Beetroot (about 1/4)
1/4 slice of Pineapple

For variety and taste you can add other fruits like pear, peach or a small bit of ginger. Ideally make and drink fresh, however a batch can be kept for up to 24 hours in the fridge.

I'm thinking I need to equip myself with a food processor and dehydrator. I've heard dehydrators can be quite expensive though.

My friends and family think I've gone a bit mad but I'm sure once they see my amazing transformation they'll be asking me what I'm doing. Wish me luck!
