Count me In for the raw challenge and want to juicing with no fruit for 30days.:)

OK! So I've decided to give it a go and see how I do :) Should be interesting since I don't have a dehydrator, a good blender and I cook in a restaurant for a living!
But I'm still willing to try ;)

Count me in for the challenge.

I am also a new member. Would a newcomer be warmly welcome here? Good day you guy !
I've only been eating mostly raw for a few weeks but I think this is going to be good for me...so I'd like to join the 30-Day challenge beginning July 1.

Welcome everybody. =] I'll be in as well.
Good luck, Poptart! Don't worry, I don't have a dehydrator either (although I live in the desert, so I just use my car :p), and my blender is horrid. You can still make most things though, it just requires some extra poking and prodding.
Absolutely, Donna. Everyone is welcome. :D

I stuck around last month for about 10 days... so I'm going to give this another shot. I have a kitchen to myself for almost three weeks so this will help tremendously!
Good luck everyone!

Happy July!!!! Am so glad to be part of the monthly challenge. This month will be a challenge. I have company here thru Sunday and then am going on vacation out of town for 11 days, traveling and going to my Mom's 90th b'day celebration/family reunion in NY. My son belongs to a co-op in Albany so will be going there to stock up on things for myself, bring some raw bread, almond butter, nuts, grawnola, macaroons, powdered greens, etc...and my sister is lending me her vitamix to have in my hotel. My mother is buying, ripening and freezing bananas for me for my green smoothies!! So.......sounds do-able!
My adult step son is visiting and he said last night I have the most interesting kitchen he has ever seen! :D He just wants to poke around!
Water w/lemon & msm
green smoothie w/fresh oj, blueberries, banana, spinach & bee pollen
mango salad w/onion bread
Hope everyone has a great day!

OK so I am so happy to be here and although I am a very new raw vegan I am loving it! I have only been raw for a week but I have been 100% SO I can not wait to KNOCK this month out!!! Great idea for us to all support each other threw a month especially for me being its my first!!!!! Good luck all! :D
07-01-2010, 06:49 AM
Count me in!
I'll probably be enjoying some iced Lemonaid and raw sunflower seeds for the first half of the day. Hope to get over to my favorite international market for some sundried dates, cranberries andraisins and then to Whole Foodsfor enough produce to hold me over til I can get to Farmer's Market.

I haven't been back for a while now but looking forward to a raw July. May the gods bless you...
07-01-2010, 11:32 AM
I'm in as well...welcome all newbies, nice to see you here, hello old friends nice to be back..let's do this!!
B-today I had fruit, hamas melon (I think that is what it was called), blueberries, banana and some grapes...
L-salad, I think something with chinese cabbage, dunno yet.
D- changed my mind on dinner, will be making beet burgers on kale salad..with fresh corn, yum.
I also think I will be unbaking DebB's yummy (I know it isn't yours, but thanks for posting it..again) jumble berry pie..

Happiest of July 1sts and Day 1 to you all!!
Here I am, going to go 99-100% raw again! (I say 99 because I may be taking some supps which don't really qualify, while I get through my sinus issues/whatnot) I am totally feeling this challenge this month. I feel prepared. I have easy to make, not too many ingredient, healthful smoothies, juices, and soups I can fall back on if I get into trouble. Unlike last month where I felt lost in the breeze and unsure.
I'm semi-debating a juice fast this month, after I kick my sinus issues to the curb. I'm thinking a nice week or so of fasting might help eliminate more toxins and give my body a break after processing through supplements and drugs. But we'll see. The allure of a crunchy veggie might be too . . . alluring at the beginning of my raw journey to pass up!
Today I have a lot of little chores and errands to do, which I'm not really looking forward to. But if I get them done today that will leave me free and clear this weekend. Since I have a long weekend (no work Monday, woo!), it is very appealing to have everything done and be able to just relax!
I'm not doing very well consuming things today (which usually means energy crash). It has been a stressful and long morning. But I did make/plan out some good things to eat. Just need to find the time to eat them!
Lemon honey water
Green smoothie (orange, peaches, spinach, honey)
Hoping To Get To Eat At Some Point ;) :
Coconut pineapple water
Salad (romaine, carrot, celery, sprouts)
Tomato soup (tomato, cucumber, celery, sprouts, garlic, spices)
If only I had time to eat these things I'd probably be full of energy! But since I've only managed to eat about 1/3 of my planned meals/foods today, I am feeling run down and sluggish. I think I will try to eat my salad soon at least. Meh.
I can't wait for the weekend!
Hope everyone is having a great Day 1!

I have an event in 2 wks that I want to look and feel my best for so I am going to work as hard as I can to stay 100%!
B - green smoothie : bananas, strawberries, plum, spinach and 1/2 scoop sun warrior protein
L - bananas + nectarines
D - farmers market veggies!! broccoli, red pepper, cucumber, cherry tomatoes all over bibb lettuce with raw dressing.
My heart starts to flutter when I get to my farmer's market. Why cant they be year round ? :(
07-01-2010, 02:14 PM
Yay, day 1! This is actually my day 22 of raw, and as of this morning I've lost 13.4 pounds! :D

S - water, raw pumpkin seeds, dried plums
L - I think I'm going to make that delicious kale/avocado salad again
D - no idea, but most likely salad of some sort, unless I get brave enough to try the sea spaghetti...
07-01-2010, 03:18 PM
I have been eating raw for about 11 days now and my mother can already see a difference in me. I am doing the 30 days(hopefully for life) to help me stay on track!

S - Almond Butter Balls

Bananas x 5
Green Smoothie - a Quart
Apricots - 1 lb
Raspberries - 12 oz
Apple x 3
and I'm just getting started! Probably making collard rolls for dinner - and I'm kinda craving dessert, so . . .
Best wishes everybody - away we go!
