But, we can only eat selected foods. Here's a list of most of the things we can eat:
-brown rice, wild rice
-apples, pears
-peaches, nectarines
-plums, apricots
-berries (except strawberries)
-figs (dried and fresh)
-kale, collard greens
-lettuce, spinach
-dandelion greens
-bok choy, cabbage
-parsley, cilantro
-sprouts (all types)
-Brussels sprouts
-broccoli, cauliflower
-beets, carrots, parsnips

So... the things we can eat mostly are not your everyday ingredients, but it a whole lot more than green smoothies!!

Today we had some hot cereal made from rice that mom blended, it was pretty good, too, once I put maple syrup on it! For lunch, we had quinoa and cabbage soup, YUM!!!!! Also, for a thicker consistency, we added a mixture of rice and lentils to it, which made it even better!!! Then for dinner we had steamed broccoli and rice and lentils mixed into it. Also YUM!!!! Thanks Mom for the good cooking! By the way about the rash...I woke up with it covering my upper body, It was cold last night, and sometimes I get it from being cold. So I guess I haven't quite done in Urticaria...oh well, maybe later on in the diet. To see the whole diet menu and all the phases, go to this link By the way, my Mom is blogging about this diet too, and she'll have more details on the recipes and stuff! Go check her blog out!

Dietary Insanity: Day two: The Smoothie Fast drawing to an end

I'm ready to start EATING!!! Tomorrow we can eat certain fruits and vegetables and grains, but will still have a green smoothie every day. By the way I forgot to explain what is in the smoothies we've been drinking. The smoothies are made of: two green apples, two pears, about six leaves of kale, about an inch of ginger root, blueberries and raspberries. Today I have had a tiny bit of a sore throat and a runny nose, hopefully just symptoms of the cleansing. Soon the symptoms should be done for, but they could get worse before they stop. I haven't gotten the rash from urticaria since I started this diet. But I also haven't done anything like running around which, though not the only way I get the rash, is something I would have to do without getting the rash in order to believe I was getting over the urticaria. Drooling as I await food tomorrow!

Dietary Insanity: Day One, The Fast Smoothie

Uh, I mean "the smoothie fast". The "Dietary Insanity" is my pet-name for the diet Mom and I are on. It is a 28 day diet that is designed to cleanse and detoxify your body. I am hoping that it will cure something I have called urticaria, click the word "urticaria" for more details.
My case of urticaria is not very serious, but it is extremely annoying. Whenever I exercise I feel a pricking in different parts of my body that escalate into an intense itch anywhere from my back to my scalp or legs. Anyway, back to the point, I and my Mom are going to only be drinking smoothies today and tomorrow, then we will eat really healthy for the rest of the 28 days. After that, we start adding things in very slowly (one thing a day).
I am going to post how I feel and what symptoms I have as I do this diet because it says to journal those things. So if you aren't reading this big whoop! I'm doing this for my own good and you can read it if you want to.
So far I am feeling normal, although mom says that we might feel worse before we feel better. See you tomorrow.

I forgot to mention earlier in the first post that my little brother will have some things listed on as well. I just listed his first hand-drawn greeting card; it's called Summer. Hopefully going to add something different to my store soon, maybe eight by tens or something.

My first post

Hello, I am Jeremiah. I started this blog to help me as I start my career as a "photograuthor" (photographer and author mixed into one big mess). I will be showing you things from my life such as pictures from trips I take and pictures I hope to sell on my etsy shop (my etsy shop can be found at: ). I also will post things about my latest book, such as a summary or plot ideas or whatever. I hope you enjoy the ride!
