This past Friday, I loaded up the girls and two of their friends, for a long weekend getaway. I suppose it was poor planning but, going on a kid friendly trip wasn't exactly the best strategy for kicking off the beginning of this 100 day Raw Fu Challenge. Nonetheless, I was determined to give it my very best shot. If I was able to successfully travel while drinking nothing but juice, surely I could stay raw while at water parks, malls and amusement parks, right??!! (video clip here.)
Gordon was able to join up with us on Friday evening after his long work week. While the girls feasted on room service and watched movies, Gordon & I stole away briefly for romantic dinner at the Park Avenue Grill inside the newly remodeled Skirvin Hotel.
I had a really fresh spinach, pear, walnut salad. It was primarily raw, but as you can see, it had this deep fried potato string thingy with a blue cheese bundle bulb (how's that for okie hick siferin'?) Yeah.....I know, not part of my program, but I couldn't resist eating that delectable bad boy. (And yes, believe me, I paid for it later.)
I didn't take the time to get pictures on the second day, but it was a combination of Frontier City, Penn Square Mall, Nichols Hills Plaza/Western Avenue, Bricktown, and too much time at the roof top pool.
Our drive home today was my personal highlight. I've always wanted to take Route 66 instead of Interstate 44, and today, I got my way. I didn't even have any complaints from the peanut gallery, probably because of the coolest stop, POPS, in Arcadia, OK.
We had a really wonderful time, but I was quite eager to be back at home once again. Preparing my own food and dining at home affords me the luxury of being in charge of what goes into my mouth....so, Day 4 on Bunny's 100 Day Raw Fu Challenge will most likely be my best yet!
