Raw Food Adventures (and a cryptic hint about potential baby news)

I've started my journey into raw foods this week.  It's one of my goals to better my health.  I do know that there is no way I could be 100% raw, at least I don't think so.  I could not live without chickpeas.  I seriously could not.  I find that I eat quite a bit of raw food anyway in the summer.  Here are a few things I've tried:
Raw granola from Two Moms in the Raw and Blackberry Hint water- I love this stuff!
This was breakfast this morning at my desk

Very yummy apple, spinach and carrot juice- I wish I had a juicer...


I've also been making salads, cucumber salad, and I've discovered I can eat raw dehydrated kale chips, but still can't seem to eat it fresh. Any suggestions? I did have one day that I slipped pretty bad (like pizza and ice cream bad), but they were vegan and gluten free so that's okay right?  I blame it on PMS, plus I felt horrible after I ate it, so I paid for it.  Next, I want to get a blender so I can make all those yummy green smoothies I see on everybody's blogs!

On the baby front: Still no news or calls, but I might have a surprise for everyone.  It's something  that came out of nowhere and could potentially be exciting. That's all I can say though.  :)

Grrr... you can't do that to us!!! Also... I think a slip up now and then on something vegan and gluten free isn't that bad... It's kind of like the person who never eats sugary foods, like chocolate, except when they are PMSing it... I tried zucchini spaghetti and marinara sauce once from the crazy raw foods lady at the Middlebury Farmers Market and it was really good... I want the little machine she has that turns raw zuchini into spaghetti strands...
