Count me in.
This is my 12th day of raw lets see if I hold out for 30 more.
So far I have done 2 36 hour fasts in those 12 days.
My big arm pit/bottom rash appears to be getting smaller.
Still have yellow nose stuff from time to time.
Hurt my back while sleeping or maybe it is starting to heal?
Choc pudding, lettuce wrap sam itchs, salad, date coconut rolls
choc cheese cake pie, flax seed crackers. This seems to make
up lots of what I eat. All raw.

i fell off the wagon again about a week ago, but i'm back! i take it as a positive sign to start over b/c avocados were 4 for $3 today and mangoes were too!
I'm on the raw bandwagon this month, on my way home today I stopped at The Health Store and bought dates and shiz.
I'm having a debate over whether the "Carob covered raisins" I'm currently eating are actually raw but I think they must be otherwise what would be the point of them?! Even though they have some preservative shit added in, so the back of the packet tells me. Which I conveniently didn't notice when I bought them and opened them.
So far today I've ate:
1 pint of smoothie consisting of water, 2 nectarines, 1 kiwi and 1 orange.
A salad of iceberg lettuce, 1 carrot, 1/3 an avocado, 10 grapes, lemon juice, and olive oil.
Carob coated raisins.
I'm planning on making raw ice cream later on to try it and I'll also have another big salad for dinner :D

Don't know yet
So excited to be embarking on this challenge!
B - smoothie of pineapple, strawberries and banana
L- smoothie yummy at Quintessence
D - probably a bunch of granny smith apples

I've attempted the 30 day challenge numerous times, and fail miserably. But, I'm back at it again! The difference this time is....I have Alissa's book! It's amazing. I'm so glad I finally bought it.
For breakfast, I wasn't too hungry. So, all I had was an apple and an orange.
Right now I'm working on lunch. A big salad (lettuce, cabbage, spinach, cukes, tomatoes, and celery) with a piece of onion bread.
And for dinner I'm making Alissa's enchiladas! I plan on fitting a green smoothie in sometime between lunch and dinner.

I'm in too! DH is an accountant so tax season (from now to April 15th) is a great time to hibernate from social engagements and focus on lifestyle change.
I'm doing green smoothies today to clear out a little from junkie diet of past week.
a.m. smoothie was banana, oranges & spinich
mid a.m. smoothie was apple/grape/spinich
lunch smoothie will be another apple/grape/spinich
snack in p.m. will be grape tomatoes
Dinner will probably be a big salad.

:) I'm back to participate in the 30 day challenge and I'm so happy....:) After 2.5 years of off-and-on with this, I am so ready to be accountable and ALL RAW. I remember my one experience of that amount of raw time as the best I've ever felt. I know what I want.
With much gratitude for being here on this thread,

I'm in. I figured I'd make my first post would be my first day raw. So far, so good. For breakfast I had a smoothie of pineapple, mango, strawberry, banana and spinach. I had some grapes for a snack. For lunch I had cucumbers and tomatoes. It's been a good day. I'm not sure what I'm going to eat for dinner.
I've tried to eat raw in the past would only manage about a day at most. :) This time I did a lot more research and planning, so I hope to be way more successful. I have found so many great recipes to try out.

I started my raw adventure on January 15th - I'm really excited to participate fully in this month's challenge.
B: a couple of dates, piece of raw cacao treat from local cooperative market (delicious!)
D: chopped mushrooms with salsa with lots of fresh ground black pepper
S: frozen bananas and brazil nut milk
I had some skin break outs at the beginning of last week that are finally clearing up - so happy :)

I am in for another month after successfully completing the January raw challenge.
I am so grateful for the experience, I have been attempting to live the 100% raw life style for so long.
So far today I had
2 cups of pineapple
I am planning on some carrot cucumber beet and some green juice with some flax seed crackers.
My goal for this month is to clean my diet up somewhat and stay away from ice creams raw fudge and other sweets that are not fruits in a natural state.
Good luck everyone

This is my first time trying to commit to a 100% raw lifestyle. I have always been interested in it but I often end up falling back into my old ways. I think with the support of an online community like this, though, I will be able to stick with it and achieve the healthy life that I really want and need.
I guess the 1st of the month is a great time to start. I have decided to do a water fast today just to flush everything from my system and will start eating whole, fresh foods first thing tomorrow!

Hey y'all! It's been awhile, but I'm back for another 30 day challenge! I did 30 days in October, and I've never felt better. I've struggled and tried to balance, and honestly done pretty well, but now I'm back to commit :) I'm also coupling this with a 30 yoga challenge that I started on Saturday. Here goes!
Breakfast: raw smoothie - spinach, coconut oil, chia seeds, strawberries, bananas and blueberries
lunch: salad - spinach, two kinds of sprouts, red and green bell pepper, a bit of grapeseed oil and salt and pepper. also munched some flax crackers.
afternoon: leftover smoothie from this morning :)
And that will probably be it for the day! Just lots of water in preparation for yoga tonight.

So far today:
Not entirely sure what I want for dinner though...
02-01-2010, 05:39 PM
All raw today
Breakfast: Green smoothie w/ kiwi, apple, spinach and grapefruit
Lunch: banana, orange, rasins
Dinner: avocado mashed with tomato and onion to dip carrot and celery in
Snack: variety of nuts
I ended up raw until dinnertime. I had a big salad as planned.. then chicken + rice + fries. Daaaaamn!

Hi all, I am so excited to start this 30 day challenge. This is the first time that I will be going 100% raw although I have been 90% at different times.
My strategy is to not get hungry for the first bit so I have eaten a lot more than others seem to but if it works thats all that matters.
B: Smoothie banana, strawberries, 2 oranges
S: handful of almonds
L: 1/2 a cantelope
D: Alissa's fettucine alfredo
S: lara bar
So first day done and feeling pretty great!
02-01-2010, 09:39 PM
B: sprouts with a little flax oil and himalayan salt, half a grapefruit
L: massaged kale and spinach salad with lemon, flax oil, salt, and black pepper
Dinner sort of spanned several hours and consisted of: 1.) a spinach salad 2.)a banana and grapefruit smoothie, and 3.) an avocado with shoyu
i enjoyed every minute of it! It felt really easy! see y'all tomorrow.
oh and this marks the third day without smoking cigarettes since deciding to quit (again, and with luck for good). I tell you, eating right and exercising and drinking tons of water, it helps this transition.

Wow, everyone's input has really given me ideas about the menus!
Feeling good, but I don't think I ate enough during the day, so I got incredibly hungry after dark.
so I just drank a ton of water.
B- 2 gala apples
L- banana spinach smoothie
D- nut cheeze nori rolls with red peppers, cukes, mung bean sprouts, broccoli spouts, carrots, miso and romaine with nama shoyu.
(my child decided that my dinner looked better than his, so I got to eat half of it)
Snack: handful of raisins.
02-02-2010, 12:03 AM
Still raw. I didn't feel like eating any thing cook today so I'll continue
banana mixed berry smoothie
Grounded Flaxseed and wheat grass
spinach,brocolli sprouts, cashew (too many) tomato, and red pepper
Blended Brocolli and mixed berries
Count me in.
I'm apart of 90 day challenge, but I want to be part of this one too.
It's great motivation.:)

So i have already been raw, but i am excited to see the community doing it together and see how everyone eats each day. I don't stick to a breakfast lunch and dinner because that doesn't work for me, i eat when im hungry and don't when i'm not. Its better for my blood sugar levels to grave through out the day too. Heres my contribution to February 1st:
-strawberry/banana/gojiberry/blueberry/coconut water smoothie
-salad with raw tahini dressing
-coconut cacao balls
