View Full Version : Raw food fast food

Today I'm having one of those lazy raw food days where I don't even want to prepare a green smoothie or a salad. For breakfast, I had a mango and some almonds, and for lunch I had two young coconuts. I think this is okay, but I don't like to skimp on my dark, leafy greens because I think those are one of the most important parts of the raw food diet.
Do you ever have those days?

I chew on celery when I feel like that

I've had a week like that. Just don't feel like fixing anything. I guess this is Raw in its most raw form.
Thank goodness fruit is so easy to eat and clean up after.:D

I get like that often too.

I've been like that a while now, several months, actually, where I just grab fruit, the kind I don't even have to peel, fresh pineapple allready peeled and cored, mango the same way, bananas, pears, I don't even want to eat kiwis, because, I don't want to have to peel them, sometimes, I think I must be lazy, then I realize, that I'm happy and eating exactly what is perfect for me at the moment.
I feel like this often. For me sometimes it is a lack of time thing and it is just out of convenience.

There are days when I only consume what is in my big'ol fruit basket....then there are times when I am inspired and feeling creative and spend way too much time creating shopping and preparing elaborate Raw Gourmet dishes. For me that's the beauty of this diet....you can do both:p

You can add me on the "I feel like that too" list.... I haven't ate much veggies lately when I think about how many I used to eat weekly compared to now... Oh well... my body will definitely let me know when it wants something... I was craving parsley yesterday.... how many people crave parsley, I'm going to buy some and juice it with some carrots (my body is wanting it)

I'm a simplistic raw foodist, but was (and still am, I guess) a gourmet cook! I love to cook for others, but I'd rather eat simply for me. I do like greens more than fruit though, so it's difficult for me to just eat an apple or something. I'd rather have greens juiced! (And a lot of them!)

Oh yeah. I have lots of days like that! That's why Earth's diet to us is the ultimate fast food!
