Here's my introduction :)
I'm not new to raw foods but it's been a lonnng time since returning to the fold, and this forum looks like an awesome place to gain/share knowledge and support. I remember how much better I felt and looked in my previous raw life -- so here we go!
Today is day 3 and it's really been a re-awakening for me. Although I feel a bit tired/ low energy right now, I feel an inner power that's fierce!
I know that the low energy thing will pass and I also know what I have to look forward to. :)
During a time in my previous raw life I was a huge fan of wheat grass, and really praise it's positive effects, so ... let the growing begin.
One step at a time though, because one thing I've learned in my journey through life is to not work too hard at "making things work", now my life's about joy and having fun - because when one focuses on that aspect of life the rest just falls in place.
I've gained alot of weight during the past few years (my goal is to lose 45 lbs) and am anxious to share my success.
I can get pretty doggone creative with my recipes, and some turn out better than others, so I will share some of the one's I like best from time to time.
Today's breakfast was fantastic so...
1 young Coconut, meat and juice (refrigerated cold)
1 tbsp raw Coconut oil
Handful of raw soaked (overnight) Walnuts
2 tbsp raw Cacao Nibs
2 tbsp raw Cacao powder
3 large Dates
1 tbsp Maca powder
Blend till smooth, and enjoy!
Thanks for the great forum, my name's RawwR, (think of the picture in my avatar and say in your best lion's pride voice RAWWWWWWWR) and I live in Eugene, Oregon.
Most of all, HAVE FUN!
