Beet and grapefruit smoothie (100 cal)
Fruit roll-up (50 cal)
Fresh mango (100 cal)
5 Crio Beans (150 cal)

3 cups of tortilla soup with organic tortilla chips and 1/2 cup of mixed grains added to soup. (400 cal)

20 oz green smoothie (150 cal)

Grand calorie total for the day…950. Not enough. I think I will enjoy some more Crio beans before bed!! :)

I made a super tasty green smoothie for my kids, but I’m too stuffed (2hrs later) to have any!

That tortilla soup was so filling, I wasn’t hungry until 7:30!

Day 4


20 oz of super sweet leftover green smoothie (see jackie’s journal for explanation) (200cal)


2 cups of tortilla soup with a handful of organic tortilla chips plus 1/2 cup quinoa and sprouted beans mixed in soup.

4 cups of Crio Bru. (200cal)


Raw concord grape juice and spinach smoothie (300cal)

Hmmm…I’m pretty sure I am guestimating my calories way
high, but even still that only leaves me at 1000 calories for the day.

Should I eat more even though I’m not in the least bit hungry?

Did I mention how much I LOVE my green smoothies?? :)

Day 5


2 whole wheat vegan pancakes with fresh grape reduction. AMAZING!! (300 cal)


Beet greens and grape smoothie (200 cal)


Green smoothie and a large salad with homemade avocado dressing (300 cal)

5 Crio beans (150 cal)

I am noticing that it is difficult to reach a healthy caloric intake when I drink green smoothies all day.

I’m not dieting, it’s just that I have no desire to eat more or even to snack after a big smoothie. Could it be that the smoothies are providing so much nutrition to my cells that I don’t actually NEED to eat more?

It’s sort of a bummer actually. I used to really enjoy snacking. :)

1/2 red onion (mediumish)
1 bunch cilantro sans stems
The tip of one Jalepeno
1 clove garlic
Juice of 3 small limes
Handful of raw cashews
1/2 cup water
Salt & pepper

Throw into vitamix and blend until creamy. Serve over hot pasta. Mmmmm!!!!!

Very flavorful!

    Hey Jackie, how did you make your avocado tomatillo salad dressing?? I am having my dad, Grandma and Uncle JonPaul over for dinner and wanted to make a good vegan salad dressing for company. Is it company worthy? Any others you can recommend?

      Hey Becky,

      I didn’t have a recipe. I just blended avocados, cilantro, lime, onion, tomatillos, salt, garlic and a little water. I think it would also be good with a drizzle of olive oil, if you are eating added oils.

      It was very Mexican, but quite tasty.

      Also, McDougal has a ton of salad dressings on his app. Just search under “dressings”.

    Jackie I dont think you are eating enough calories, you can actually stunt your weight oss by eating less than 2000 calories per day. Trust me Im a calorie fanatic (although you wouldn’t know by looking at me hahaha).

  3. Jackie, you might consider just recording these on a page instead of as comments. I’d copy and paste them onto the page and then just add your updates as you go. 🙂
