Adventure Cleanse: Day 1

So my adventure cleanse has officially begun, and I have to say that I am loving it so far! I had my green juice in the morning and it was quite tasty. Although, I think I might have had a bit too much too soon because my stomach started to feel a bit queasy afterward, but it quickly passed. Overall, I didn't feel any detox symptoms, and I didn't have any cravings for coffee, sugar or wheat. yay! I really stuck to the food component of the cleanse, and I think I managed an 80% raw food intake.

Here is a list of day 1's eats:
