View Full Version : Anyone up for a challenge?!
01-16-2007, 03:30 PM
At the end of this week I am moving to Montana - a part of my journey towards health and happiness.
I having been learning about raw and enjoying delicious raw food and recipes for the past year. But I think I am ready to get serious and go 100%!
I want to start from ground zero with this move. I will have lots of support etc.
But... what I'm wondering is does anyone want to help me with a meal plan???
It would be for my 2 year old daughter and myself.
I want to just eat simple.... I just want a little help for the first few shopping trips!
Anyone up for it???

I should really just get Alissa's book huh? I know she includes a shopping list. OK.... Now I guess I finally have an excuse to buy it. LOL......

I'd help you out but I'm still trying to learn how to eat and be prepared for myself... good luck! I have alissa's book but I don't really follow her eating plans or grocery list...
what I was doing was on sunday I was picking one recipe per day for the week and buying the ingredients I needed for that...
then I'd eat fruit only for breakfast....
the recipe I'd prepared for lunch...
and a big green smoothie for dinner...

it actually is when you do it that way.
I prepare each meal at night and take it to work the following day for lunch.
you should get alissa's book anyway though because there is so much information in there and great recipes! I bought hers first and love it! And if you're new to raw food, alissa's dvd is really fun and helpful because you can watch her preparing stuff!
have fun and enjoy your food!

getting alissas book will help you out a LOT.
i practically live off green smoothies, so my suggestion would be: lots of fruit and lots of greens :) .. to incorporate smoothies into your diet, if youd like that is lol. i buy frozen fruit..frozen berries usually..because i find during the winter its a lot cheaper than buying fresh.
hopefully others with more diverse diets will chime in lol

I've been experimenting and eating lots of raw recipes over the past year. But havn't yet been able to do it 100%. I have major lack of support in my household - but that will no longer be a problem with this move.
So.... I just need some structure really. I know the foods I like ... but I eat SO much when I eat JUST raw.. . So stucture will help me some. I really like Luna's schedule. I just want simple really!
My daughter grazes all day... she's easy! LOL
But me if I graze all day I'll eat everything in the fridge!
I think I'll start a journal (on this site) when I do begin.
I'm worried about how much this is going to cost... we are going to be BROKE! But I think we can manage! I get to have a garden this spring/summer! I'm so excited to get out of southern Ca!!!! YAAY!!!!
