Welcome to the last day of your first week!!! Congrats!!!
06-06-2010, 11:40 PM
I wanted to hop on here before I went to bed, to update everyone on how awesome I'm feeling!!!
Last night I had a horrible night, and was feeling really, really bad. I woke up in the middle of the night in a full sweat, I mean soaked, sheets and all. I was so dizzy and my heart was pounding. So I got up and drank about 32 oz of water and started to feel better. As the day went on, it only got better and better.
I feel like a new person, and today (yesterday) after I ate some bananas, went on a 3 mile walk, I came home and drank a huge green smoothie consisting of LOTS of bananas, chia, LOTS of spinach, LOTS of cilantro, and
Well after I drank it, within about 20 minutes, I started getting SOOOO drunk.
I really mean it, I felt like I was on a boat, the room was spinning, I started laughing and couldn't stop laughing, my sides were hurting I was laughing so hard. It was the kind of feeling that you laugh at anything and everything, and your laughing SOOO hard that you are crying!! I ended up laying on the kitchen floor with the room spinning around and around, and laughing and feeling like I was on some type of drug or like I was really drunk???
I do not drink and have not had any alcohol in about 22 years, but that's what I felt like. It was a good, no a great feeling, but where in the world did it come from? Maybe the amount of bananas I ate and put in the smoothie?? They were VERY ripe, almost black, but that's the way I eat them.
I think it could be that my hard detox the past few days has passed and now I'm seeing the wonderful benefits of raw.
Even when I was all raw last summer, I never experienced the feeling I had today. The only other time I came close to feeling like this is when I did a 7 day juice fast, but today was even more intense.
Could it be the sweating I did during the night? Maybe it released whatever I was trying to detox? I also had some really good BMs today, and feel really really clean and cleared out. I didn't even have any bloating today, even after the big green smoothies and all the bananas. YEAH!!!
I have sooooo much energy, maybe too much, but I won't dare complain.
Tomorrow (today) I have to juice fast since I have my colonoscopy tomorrow.
But that will just help me clean out some more.
I went and bought some organic apples, celery, and cucumber to juice, and I plan on juicing 2 pineapples as well. What will be hard is cutting the pineapple and not being able to eat any :( But the juice will be yummy!!
I hope that all of you will be able to experience what I did today!!
It is so hard to put into words, how good I felt. In fact my kids thought I was going crazy, and was really concerned LOL ;)
06-07-2010, 05:51 AM
:) It is so great to hear you feeling better and so up! I can just imagine the look on your kids faces!! haha...yup.Mom's lost it!!! Does good to keep them guessing sometimes!! I have experienced that kind of euphoric laughing from all raw and it is such a wonderful thing. I don't know about the drunk part but have had bananas so ripe they smelled fermented???? In any case, hope you have another incredible day! You are doing great!!

I've been striving to be raw for over three years now and have made many changes along the way but it was so often a major struggle, both physically and emotionally. For some reason this time it has been wonderful and not a struggle at all. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop and the cravings to come but so far they haven't. I feel in a way like I am holding my breath!
Today is day seven. It's amazing to me how much better I feel as the first week 100% draws to a close. I am-
1. emotionally more stable and positive
2. sleeping better
3. feeling sexual again (menopause is a bitch)
4. down seven lbs so far
5. so much less belly bloat
6. not obsessing about food
7. no guilt over what I eat
So...I think wow! If I feel this good after a week what will I feel like after 6 months, a year? How amazing could my health and life become?
I'm really grateful to Alissa for providing this site......and to each of you for sharing the journey...hope you have a great day~

Hi! I had an off day yesterday - won't give the details :) So I read in a diet book that it's good to plan your day out ahead of time so you know what to eat and when so you don't go off track. That in mind, here's today's plan:
Breakfast: Watermelon (or Alissa's Watermelon Soup w/o mango)
Snack: Oranges cut into thin slices
Lunch: Broccoli soup
Snack: Peach Ice Cream (peaches and frozen bananas)
Dinner: Romaine boats with some kind of sunflower seed pate, sprouts (I sprouted alfalfa and broccoli sprouts) and some creamy hemp dressing.
I reread the testimonials in the book yesterday (I hope the new book has more - I love a good testimonial with pics!) so that helps too.
06-07-2010, 07:17 AM
Ten days raw for me and these are the wonderful changes:
No more sugar cravings!
My SAD brain isn't sending messages that I am hungry all of the time!
My taste buds must have been asleep because I'm noticing more flavors in foods!
9 pounds released!
Here is my meal plan for the day:
Breakfast - mango, apple, orange, lemon, spinach smoothie
Snacks - pecans, banana
Lunch/Supper - Tomato, cucumber, broccoli, onion, green pepper salad with acv
06-07-2010, 07:28 AM
Morning! I've decided to start today versus Thursday:)
Plan for today is:
watermelon (done, big bowl)
green smoothie (spinach, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, cinnamon)
more smoothie later
my caffeine headache is almost gone:)

06-07-2010, 07:44 AM
Good morning! :)
Day three here and feeling tired after a big day yesterday. The People's Fair was an interesting place for people-watching...lots of folks walking around drinking beer, eating SAD, getting sunburned. I'm so pleased to say that I wasn't even tempted by all the SAD goodies that were available, all the high-sugar/processed stuff I would have binged on before.
On my way to the fair, I stopped at the grocery store to get cash for parking and purchased a few Larabars thinking that it would be good to have them on hand. Turns out that I can overeat on Larabars and raw nuts very easily. So, today I am keeping it simple with my food, eating when I'm hungry and stopping when I'm full. It's been such a habit over the years to eat all the time just because the food is available.
Since today is the end of my weekend before a six-day stretch at work, I am going to enjoy it. There is nothing that has to get done, so I think that I will treat myself to a relaxing day. Other than watering the garden and getting a nap in, I'm not sure what that looks like, but I'm thinking that maybe a pedicure would be nice. :D I've never had one, so it would be a treat.
Have a great day, everyone! :)
06-07-2010, 11:19 AM
basenji - thanks! :)
watermelon soup and oranges - check and check. also had 2 or 3 walnut halves. broccoli soup soon.
06-07-2010, 11:25 AM
I'm late starting my thirty days, but better now than never, right? I was all raw for 2 years about a year and a half ago, but went back to SAD food and gained 100 pounds! Scary! Now I'm committing to raw again, and I am so excited. I actually tried to go all raw on Saturday, but forgot that I have to start all over again--I can't expect to eat the way I was eating after 2 years of raw when I've been eating such huge amounts of SAD junk. So I regrouped and am now following Alissa's weekly plan from Living on Live Food, with some modifications because I'm a picky eater.
Breakfast: 25ish oz green smoothie (3 bananas, bag of frozen mango, bag of frozen pineapple, two handfuls strawberries, tbsp of raw honey, handful of wheatgrass, tons of spinach, 3 handfuls of sunflower sprouts)
Lunch: will be carrots and celery w/ raw hummus
Dinner: Alissa's fettucini alfredo
Snacks: cashews, grapes
Not sure how the timing of it all will work, as I have class from 1 to 4 (I'm in grad school), but it will work out. I know now not to leave the house without emergency snacks in my purse!
Pumped to join this journey with all of you, and congrats to everyone on a week raw!!
06-07-2010, 11:29 AM
DonnyandCathy, I was thorughly entertained while reading your post! I was mentally picturing you doing those things :) How funny...and how wonderful! How long have you been raw? I have experienced something on a much smaller scale before..about 15 minutes after a smoothie or a pound of grapes I feel extremely happy, a burst of energy and almost dizzy...
Today for breakfast and lunch I'm eating mono meals of grapes and for dinner Blueberry banana ice cream.
Wanted to write about an experience we had on Saturday this past weekend, I have been wanting to try a vegan restaurant in the city and took my husband with me. We ordered a couple appetizers and I got a salad as my main dish and for dessert we split a vegan shake. I let myself nibble at some stuff but the shake did me in...I was in a food COMA for the rest of the day. We ate at 1pm and I still was feeling ill all the way until bedtime. Cooked food made me want to curl up and die! I felt horrible. It makes me appreciate raw food so much.
06-07-2010, 11:35 AM
B: green smoothie with romaine, pakistan mango, frozen bananas and some mint
L: Small portion of the broccoli soup from yesterday. I added some more water, so today I liked it better.
D: Sunflower pate in Romaine leaves with other veggies.
06-07-2010, 11:36 AM
So the plan for today is Green juice....more Green juice.... and uh....more Green juice... ouhh and cant forget a Green Smoothie tossed in the mix for dinner ;) You all are doing great keep up the awesome job!!!
06-07-2010, 12:10 PM
Greetings all! Hope everyone is having a marvelous Day 7.
I am feeling slightly less crappy, but I don't want to pronounce myself "feeling better" yet since I seem to keep backsliding after the noonish time.
I truly think my main issue with raw so far is consumption. Not consuming enough, period. Calories, carbs, complex carbs, sugar, what have you, I'm just not getting enough of any of it. Last night before bed I was hungry and wanting pineapple. So I had a bunch. I was ridiculously hyper after eating it. So much so I couldn't sleep. But I realized, if I was getting that hyper from the rather minimal amount of pineapple I was eating, my body must be deprived and then over reacting a bit to what I give it. It really rammed home the fact I need to get back on my smoothies for breakfast, and carefully plan/bring enough foods for lunch. Dinners aren't as big a deal as I will be at home and able to scrounge/cook as needed. But when I don't plan ahead for bringing breakfast and lunch to work, I wind up with nothing to bring. As an example, since my plans to cook up some almost tuna got foiled last night by spoilage, I then was totally brain dead on what to bring, had nothing prepared, and wound up bringing a bunch of strawberries and carrots. Healthy!!
I did make a green smoothie for breakfast though. I need to get better at drinking these faster too. But I think the smoothie has made the difference in my energy this morning. I still feel a bit lethargic and brain dead, but not as exhausted or about to cry or what have you that I've been feeling for days. Hopefully the carrots and strawberries will keep me going for the afternoon since I have big plans to shop and then go home and cook. I have it all planned out so that hopefully it won't take too long either. I'm hoping to make some chips from various fruits and veggies. I'm not sure if I should marinate them in anything and then throw them in the dehydrator, or just put them in and lightly salt, but I'll figure it out. I want it to be fast and easy. I realize they likely won't be done till tomorrow afternoon, but that's okay - just so long as I have some and they're edible and I can bag them up to bring for snacks. I'm also going to whip up a large batch of almost tuna for lunch tomorrow, so at least I'll have on day of stress free lunch to bring!, and maybe some of the other recipes you all have posted to help me out :) and have more lunches stored up, and I'm also very excited to try out Alissa's broccoli soup recipe for dinner. I realize I'll be spending quite some time in the kitchen tonight, but I plan to make it as enjoyable as possible by turning on a TV show or some music, and taking the occasional yoga/stretch break so maybe my back won't get as sore.
So thanks to you all again for the help and support. I think what I'm really finding difficult is getting enough to eat, in the easiest way possible, and having things ready for lunches here at work. That seems to be my biggest downfall. Lunch gets messed up and then I lose energy to do anything else after it, thereby repeating the "I have nothing ready for lunch!" cycle. I'm hoping a change to my routine - where I come home and get lunch for the next day ready, then make dinner - will help all this. And maybe at some point I'll be prepared enough to make lunches for a few days ahead, and will spend less time in the kitchen. I'm also stocking up on lots of smoothie supplies for breakfast, and am hoping to find the perfect fruity combo to mask banana, but also have a nice thick creamy "shake" type drink for the mornings.
And, on a positive-ish note, I do notice huge beneficial changes to my stomach through all this. Formerly eating cooked foods, post-meal was usually massive amounts of pain and cramping and various other lovely things. I've had none of that for a week now. I'm on day 10 of 100% raw, and around days 2-4ish I was having definite detox. But now, my gut feels almost normal. No more ridiculous rumbling after I eat. No more pain. So although I'm having energy/emotional issues, the fact I'm stomach pain free is what is keeping me going. I don't want to go back to what I felt before. And maybe this exhaustion is a need for extra rest too (which I've gotten none of) to let my poor inflammed digestive tract, which is hopefully now not inflammed, heal itself.
That being said, I better refill the water bottle and grab my carrots before it gets any later and I crash again!
I may report back on how my recipes go tonight. Oh, does anyone have a tip for warming my soup? I just love a warm soup . . . should I just blend it in the Blendtec at a high speed for a while? I don't need it hot, but not ice cold would be nice too :)
Happy Day 7 all!
06-07-2010, 02:21 PM
GOSSY!!! ... I'M SOOO GLAD you're doing better!!! http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s43/FireStar_830/sun.gif seeing the positive changes in your digestive track is such great news! RAWk on... ! oh - and some peeps warm their soup in their dehydrators, others have posted that they stick the bowl in the microwave for a few seconds - warm the bowl then pour the soup in and the bowl will gently heat the soup! But I would think 'whizzing' it in your blendtec would work too! Your post put such a smile on my face this morning - you sound so much more positive today! :D

Brekkie and lunch - cucumber, spring greens, apple, orange, lemon juice
Dinner - apricot, banana and strawberry smoothie
I'm back on! Phew!
06-07-2010, 03:13 PM
Good Day my raw friends! I'm so pleased to see that the will and drive is there as we go into our second week!
I'm going to try and keep it simple today. I have a bunch of fruit that I want to eat before it goes bad, and the fridge needs sorting. I still have a ton of stuff in there that won't agree with the way I want to feel, so it's either going to my parents or in the trash. I hate throwing away food, but if it makes me sick then why eat it?
I had a beautiful smoothie this morning... banana, spinach, blueberries and some frozen organic non-sugared cranberries that have been in my freezer for at least a year. Who knows if they're still good, but they gave my smoothie a nice bite.
Keep rawking everybody. It's such a gift to sign in here and "see" all your beautiful faces!
06-07-2010, 03:15 PM
I'm still in on the challenge. I was traveling this past weekend and wasn't able to check in. Thank God I was thinking ahead and made up baggies of food to take with me. I didn't have any problems with my food at security either. I mostly just took my dried stuff and went to the store immediately and got stuff to eat.
So far so good with staying raw. Only thing is, my mouth is soooo sore and my throat almost feels swollen. It feels especially worse when I eat of course. I'm also getting a lot of blemishes. I hardly ever break out. They are mostly small and just above my upper lip. Then I have a mondo huge one on my cheek. I thought maybe I wasn't going to detox at first but now I'm wondering what is going on. I was raw before June just not all the way because I was still drinking coffee.
Veggie Chips - kale, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes
Mock salmon pate wrapped in lettuce
I am really random sometimes and I have trouble declaring everything I will eat for the day.....
Tonight I'm making a corn bread recipe I got from this forum and "taco meat" so I'm sure I'll have some of that, the corn bread will take a day or so though.
Oh and I got a sprouting jar today. :D
06-07-2010, 03:17 PM
Gossy! I'm so happy you are starting to sound optimistic again! Congrats!
06-07-2010, 04:49 PM
I am disappointed with myself today. My intention was to keep the food simple today and eat mindfully. HAH! I've been eating mindlessly all day. I think that I'm trying to do it all at once...eat raw the "right" way (whatever that means), eat mindfully, etc, etc. I also had plans to take it easy and relax today. That hasn't happened either. I watered my garden and ran around doing errands. Now, in addition to being tired and full, I'm crabby. I always set such high expectations for myself. Sorry for the dump... :(
The one positive is that everything I ate was raw. While I was out running errands, I briefly contemplated cooked food, but did not give in. I made the salsa and ate it all with crackers and carrot "chips". I also finished off the bag of cashews, ate some dates, strawberries and half a grapefruit. Seems that there was more too, I just can't remember what. All of this on top of my grapefruit, mango, strawberry, chard salad for breakfast. Oh well. :rolleyes: At least I don't need to worry about dinner.
Thankfully I'm back to work tomorrow. I seem to handle a day structured around work than one without. Since I was sore from the race yesterday, I opted out of my weight workout this morning. I'm heading to bed early this evening so that I can get plenty of rest and get my workout in before work in the morning.
06-07-2010, 04:51 PM
Had to post about the FANTASTIC dip I just ate! It's red pepper macadamia dip, and is made by a local rawbie here in Dallas. It is unbelievably phenomenal! The only ingredients are raw macadamia nuts, red bell pepper, lime juice, and sea salt, and the consistency is like hummus, or a bit thicker. I'm going to try to recreate it on my own at some point, and if I do I'll post a recipe. But wowzers was it yummy! Way tastier than even cooked red pepper hummus. I think I will serve it this weekend at a family get together and not even tell anyone it's raw (though maybe I don't want to share it!).
So that's been a definite highlight of the day! I still keep forgetting that I need to eat so much more often when raw, so I was super hungry after my class, but I made it home to the yummy dip, phew! I've gotten so used to stuffing myself completely every 7-8 hours, that I'm taking a while to adjust to getting hungry every 2 hours or so. But it'll sort out.
Gossy--SO delighted that you are recognizing positive changes and sticking to it! I've been rooting for you and hoping to see you on the forum today. We are all cheering you on from the cyber sidelines, and every mouthful of raw food is a victory!!
06-07-2010, 05:21 PM
dinner was the planned romaine boats w/ a variation of alissa's mock salmon pate, creamy hemp dressing, sprouts - yum! my un-raw but mostly-vegan (her dad likes to give her cruddy ice cream and such) 3 1/2 year old ate some sprouts after i told her they were "little baby plants."
going to make the peach ice cream soon :D
some frozen organic non-sugared cranberries that have been in my freezer for at least a year. Who knows if they're still good, but they gave my smoothie a nice bite.
I have like 2 bags of the same! :)
06-07-2010, 06:50 PM
Okay, the ice cream is super filling - I used 2 big frozen bananas and a peach and I'm stuffed. Oh, and a tiny bit of raw almond milk.
06-07-2010, 06:50 PM
My day took a turn for ..the fruit..so no mexican salad for me, I just had a bunch of strawberries and blueberries, an apricot, 2 bananas and some spices....for dinner. Tomorrow we will have the mex salad instead.
See you then!!
06-07-2010, 07:06 PM
Firefly, I understand your frustrations. You kept raw! Congratulations!! There is SO much temptation all around us, and you stayed raw. YAY!!!
Everybody's food sounds delicious. I just finished a workout and am going after the fresh fruit on the counter. I'll make a smoothie later on.
06-07-2010, 07:19 PM
Gossy, I'm so glad you're sorting things out and sticking with it, not to mention sounding more upbeat about it all. Hooray :D
Everyone, congratulations on a day well eaten!
For me it was a good day. I think my body is finally adjusting to both the no-fat and the 100% raw. I've been having really smelly BO for several weeks (was 70%ish raw for 2 months prior to starting this challenge), and it's finally seeming to subside. I still smell strong, but it's nowhere as foul as it had been. And the candida is disappearing more each day. I am closer and closer to being able to have my beloved nuts again.
B: green smoothie with kale and spinach and a tad parsley, banana, and the frozen peach/mango/strawberry/pineapple mix
S: shared two oranges with my 3yo
L: green lemonade smoothie, with spinach, two lemons, some lemon peel, dates, and a banana--this was amazing!
S: dried papaya and banana chips
D: salsa salad, with cucumber, tomato, onion, frozen corn, red pepper, salt garlic powder and cumin
06-07-2010, 07:54 PM
I had a very good day...feeling wonderful.
small bowl grawnola
2 gala apples
almond milk/cacao/maca/bee pollen smoothie
Tomorrow my goal is to eat greens twice...salads/salads and or green smoothie
Another 100% raw day and I am so happy about that...blood pressure 108/71
Looking so forward to tomorrow and to a year from now...yup....and the journey in between~
06-07-2010, 08:02 PM
I ate too much today! yuck! I hate that full feeling.
2 greens/ bananas smoothies
lots of grapes
few pieces of canteloupe
I think tomorrow I'm gonna eat light. I know my body needs to do some detoxing & overeating is not gonna help!
06-07-2010, 08:28 PM
WOW! Everyone seems so much happier today!
Cheers all. :D This is what a week can do for you.
I just drank water for most of the morning, as last night I had a hugggge dinner yesterday (lots of walnuts, grapes and a chopped up apple with cinnamon SO delicious) and was still feeling pretty heavy.
Then I snacked on some dates at work, and had a green smoothie before hitting the health food store. Picked up my first raw cashews! As these are legumes, not nuts, do they still require soaking?
06-07-2010, 09:16 PM
I realized I've been slacking with the meal plans...
Last night I made a raspberry chocolate cake from Ani Phyo's dessert book.
I had that raspberry chocolate cake for breakfast. Do all of yourselves a favour and make the icing.. it is AMAZING!
Lunch was another cabbage "taco wrap"
Then after my run I had a banana raspberry smoothie with a scoop of ground hemp seed and about a teaspoon of camu camu powder
I snacked on a few cashews on my way home from work.
Annnnd.. just now I chopped up two heads of baby bok choy, drizzled avocado oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, and sesame seeds. It was the best salad I've had in a long time.. and so simple!
I might have a little something else before bed. Probably coconut chips... so cheap, so good, and satisfy my craving for crunch! I've been thinking about coating them in olive oil and sprinkling them with sea salt... lol
06-07-2010, 09:32 PM
I still didn't eat enough today, but I seem to have kept myself in better shape than past days. Still, I spent almost the entire day obsessing about food and got very little work done. Hopefully that'll be fixed tomorrow since I spent a ridiculous amount of time tonight preparing some things for meals. One of which I then had an allergic reaction to! Wonderful!
I'm planning to do minimal prep stuff tomorrow after work to give myself a break. I should have enough to have dinners and lunches for at least tomorrow and Wednesday. Wednesday will likely have to be another night of multi-prep, but if that gets me through till the weekend that isn't too bad.
I also attempted to make potato chips and I think I cut them way too thin. I put a lot of spices on them too. At least those were fairly fast/easy, so if the batch in there doesn't taste how I want it'll be quick to make more
And now I am off to bed to hopefully fall asleep soon. Good night fellow rawwies, and thanks once again for all the support!!
06-07-2010, 09:56 PM
I'm glad I gave everyone a good laugh, I know I was sure having one :D
My kids couldn't stop talking about it today, and kept teasing me, but it was cute.
Today was juice fast, preparing for my not so wonderful procedure tomorrow :(
So today I drank...
Juice made from....
Apples, Celery, Cucumber
I'm still feeling good today, but was a little weak this afternoon, I can't wait till I can eat again tomorrow afternoon/evening.
Nothing after midnight tonight, not even water in the morning. That's going to be really hard, and my procedure is not till 1:00. I'm going to take some water and maybe some cantaloupe with me, and have my husband hold on to it till I get out. I can eat it on the way home.
I did manage to walk about 4 miles today :)
I'm so glad that everyone seems to be feeling and doing better today.
It's so wonderful having this support, and encouragement!!
06-07-2010, 10:26 PM
B: green smoothie
D: spinach "taco salad" with walnut taco "meat", spinach, cherry tomatoes and avocado. I probably overdid the fat in this but it was SO good, and I had only about 1/4 cup of the "meat".
