View Full Version : May 6 - Day 6
05-06-2010, 08:39 AM
It's a raw rainy day here in Maine... blah... I honestly don't believe my grass needs more rain! lol...
Starting today off putting the green in the green smoothie... literally, it's really really green, kinda on spinach overload! Not really a great flavor, a bit bland, but it's good for me and I'm hungry so I'll suck it up and suck it down!
Not sure what I'll plan for the rest of the day yet, but there is always a salad in there somewhere!
How is everyone else??

Started the day with a banana driving back from carpool. Came home and made a green smoothie, which I am drinking now. Hope to have fruit and raw almonds for lunch, and either another green smoothie or fruit smoothie for dinner. Seeds and extra bananas as needed.
The main thing today is WATER! I am not drinking enough water. I think the veggies and fruits have such a high water content that I don't feel thirsty. However, I need water to flush out all the toxins in my body from a SAD diet. I have a long way to go!!

Holy crap!! Now I know for sure why I've been so ravenous and it's not just the raw food. I am pregnant.
We'd been trying for 12 months so every month that came along I would be hopeful but not very optimistic about the prospect. I just took a test this morning though and it's official. 5 weeks!! I really started to think I must be the last couple of days cause I was late and (sorry if this is TMI but....) my boobs have been sore for the past week and then there's the whole completely ravenous bit.
Yay!! We are over the moon. And while I can't say for sure that it was the raw food diet that we've both been on that did the trick, it sure didn't hurt!!
We're not telling people yet but since I think the raw food could be partly responsible and you're a bunch of strangers, it seems okay to let the cat out of the bag here. But it'll stay quiet on the blog.
So far today I had a coconut after yoga and then just ate the two leftover bananas from yesterday's bunch. Still hungry. I think I'm going to go grab something in a few.
Hope you're all having a great day.

Yay for you, so happy for you :)

Katy huge congrats..I am so excited and happy for you both..shoot for all three of you...Didn't you say the other day that eating broccoli was making you sick to your stomach..now we might know why.
PS> I love your blog, it is beautiful to look at and so much fun to read...
I am having a nut free day today..it will be hard but I can do it..
B-banana and Strawberries
S-banana and 1/2 grapefruit.
L-1 cantelope, banana
D-kale salad, the whole dang bowl..2 bananas and some blueberries and I am not pregnant..what gives..no nuts..is that why?
Katy, that is awesome news! Congrats to you and your hubby!!!:D
I am feeling out of sorts today- my body was DEMANDING food last night and I had just bought a jar of raw almond butter, and I seriously ended up eating probably 1/3 of the jar or more!!! I could not get full, then suddenly I was so full and sick and ended up throwing up later. I haven’t been eating much fat since I was preparing for the marathon, but I wanted to try adding some back in…slowly…not like 100 grams of fat at once! LOL. Today I’m takin’ it easy, I will eat a little fat later since Trader Joe’s had no fresh organic fruit last night, but I will not overdo it!
B: one of the best green smoothies I’ve ever had- 2 bananas, frozen mango & spinach
L: packed a salad w/ romaine, baby romaine, lots of sprouted chickpeas, carrots, tomatoes, red pepper, vinegar & about ½ T olive oil
S: Lara Bar
w/o: maybe a 3 mile run, plus my usual 3 miles of walking throughout the day and vacuuming the apartment!
D: another smoothie, same as breakfast, maybe with an extra banana!
Have a great raw day all!

Danielle--Those of us who don't do long distance running I'm sure have no idea what goes into preparing for, and running, a marathon. Again, I am mightily impressed by people like you who do it, especially as you share the pre- and post- challenges of it all.
Smoothie: Spinach, banana, pineapple, coconut water, coconut
Smoothie: Kale, and same as above!
Salad: mixed greens, olives, avocado, walnuts, raisins, onion, o/v

i'm checking in again. it's been a weird time and i could hardly describe all the wacky events in the past year or so. but i'm back to try again so i'll see how it goes. i'm in a place, mentally, physically, spiritually, etc., where i may be able to get my month of fruitarian, or at least, completely raw, unprocessed foods. i don't like the daily disappointment with wherever i'm at each day, feeling bummed about not being a produce eater. i just feel like i'm not doing anything with my life if i don't eat this way, and i'm getting less entertained by the daily goings-on and more bummed in the being bored sense. raw eating will put the fire back into my life, so hopefully i can stay with it for a while. i'm the kind of guy though who sticks it out there with a paragraph and an attempt and then turns around and can't even get a day or two. so we'll see, i had the thought to post here, so i'll give it a shot. i like this forum and the one at rawfood.com.

I hope I'm allowed to start participating in the middle of the monthly challenge. I have been trying to be raw and I think sharing my daily food with you all will really help!
B/L: A "salad" of romaine lettuce, carrots, red cabbage, avocado and what was supposed to be onion bread but it didn't stick together so it ended up being a yummy dried onion thing (onion, olive oil, sea salt (not sure if sea salt is raw or not), flax seeds, sunflower seeds).
05-06-2010, 03:28 PM
well, here we go again. i went out and bought raw peanuts, avocados, dates and bananas. the usual staples for me when i'm trying to go through the mental burn, resentment, anger, etc., of trying to get raw. and, of course, i overheard a discussion by two women about diets, just to make me feel responsible for the world. i'll cheer up though. i have no problems in my life right now and my living situation and my cash situation are good.:cool::eek::D:confused:
05-06-2010, 03:31 PM
Holy crap!! Now I know for sure why I've been so ravenous and it's not just the raw food. I am pregnant.
i have a free ticket for an advanced screening of the movie "babies" that i'm going to go see tonight. can't beat that for happiness, joy and a beautiful thing.:cool::rolleyes:;):p
05-06-2010, 03:41 PM
Hey all, thanks so much for the congrats.
I wish I could see Babies tonight!! Maybe this weekend :) No, I would not likely have said that last week.
The meal report... After the bananas this morning I had an apple and then for lunch a big green smoothie (banana, apple, mango, red kale) and then for second lunch (anyone watch The Office?:p) I got a big salad with cabbage, arugula, tomatoes, red onion, and cucumber.
Going to walk home now and try not to gnaw on people along the way.

Congrats KATY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's awesome news :)
I've had 2 smoothies w/ bananas, avo's, greens ice & water
1 & 1/2 orange
may have grapes later....dunno!
05-06-2010, 08:24 PM
eating, eating, and eating
raw, raw, and more raw
full, happy, and focused
what could be better?
05-06-2010, 08:36 PM
I am so excited for you katy!!!!!!! Can't say it enough because we were doing adoption paperwork when we got pregnant with our little guy who is almost 5 years old now.
A little bit more energy today. I haven't exercised since Monday because of the symptoms. I am still having some of the cardiac symptoms. My appointment is tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully, the cardiologist will listen to me and not say - no family history, good cholesterol, your heart is fine. I know there is something wrong somewhere. It could be damage from the lyme disease.
today I had some leftover liquid chocolate pieces, 2 green smoothies, a piece of zia's tiramisu and a few strawberries picked fresh from my CSA today. My appetite is so ridiculously low I don't know when it will come back.
I think it will take me the entire month of May to figure out what to do with reducing my time on the internet. I have had some success. I can't just give it up because there are things I do that are necessary. If I could just give it all up it would be easier than trying to find the right time of day to do just what is necessary.
Hope everyone is feeling great!

Yesterday I gave in my exam project, and I'm now heeding of to get information for the next exams. Just two more to go, the I will be a social worker. :)
After that I went to help my grandmother remove all my grandfather things, who past away in February. We had a nice day together, and even though I will not get her top be raw, she started eating fruits until noon, which helped her loose 10 kg. She still has a looong way to go, but at least she is going in the right direction. :)
B: Some pears and bananas
L: Salad with tomatoes, lettuce, avo, sunflowerseeds and a little asparagus.
D: Small salad again. And a very heavy mix with dates, nuts, coconut oil, cacao, and dry coconut to put on top. I was very full after!!

Oh I almost forgot. Congratulations Katy. Thats really amazing news, and I don't doubt that it's the raw. I haven't been here so long, so maybe you told it before. But did you go on Raw together for this purpose, or is it just a wonderful side effect :)

i live in orlando and see little ones with more frequency than i seemed to in the philadelphia area. i use public transportation. i didn't see that movie yesterday, although i may go pay for it on monday or sometime after that. it looks like it would be very beautifully inspiring. i can't get enough of that, but no matter how much goodness i get in my life, i can't seem to care enough to want to stay raw. i just have no major motivations, except that i feel better that way, but that "feeling better" feeling doesn't last into the evening, when binging sad looks much more fun. posting may not be in my best interest as i always sabotage my food after posting. i keep thinking it might be different, but that would be the definition of insanity. well, i just keep plugging along at it and hope that someday i get the motivation to do a few consecutive months and then a few years raw or produce diet as i like to eat.:eek::o:mad::confused:

Please pass this on to any parents you know who eat and feed their babies and children a high vegan, high raw diet. This is part of my thesis on the health of vegan kids.
Thanks for any help you can share:
