June 1st 2009 Raw Challenge - Day one
Welcome to day one! Good luck on your journey!
Looking forward to June...going on vacation to VA Beach to see my friends and family for 2 weeks. I love the simple life.

L – salad leaves with cucumber, tomato, carrot, peppers, olives, sundried tomatoes, pine nuts and a few macadamias – olive oil and lemon dressing

Really happy with day 1 as was challenged by someone who was taunting me with cooked food... how cruel?! LOL! I feel I have eaten a lot and too many different types of food but I know that I needed it today to start me off. I understand I will start eating less as time goes on.
Baby and I are on our way!

Liz, where in LA are you? I lived in West Hollywood for a year and a half and ever since I left I can't wait to move back!
a man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
I'm soooo in this!!! Sciencegal :)
Failure is not an option-Success is not how many times you fall down,but how many times you get up!!!:D :D
please visit my blog!!!
I'm in. I have been mostly raw for the last four months, but never 100%. My big challenge will be to cut out the one small cup of coffee I have still been having every morning, thanks to my husband, who leaves for work before I get out of bed, and always leaves a little coffee behind in the pot for me (I guess I could just ask him to dump it, haha).
Breakfast: Big green smoothie (apple, banana, spinach, chia)
Lunch: Mixed greens and spiralized carrot and zuchinni with miso dressing. Carrot sticks with almond hummus.
Snack (midafternoon): grapes, banana
Snack (before dinner): young coconut water blended with frozen pineapple
Dinner: "pizza" and a giant green salad with salsa and pesto dressings.
Today I had
B - green smoothie
s - raw cashews
l- sticks of carrot, celery, & jicima with garlicy "cheese" sauce
s- cashews, almonds, dates & raisins
D - Mexican soup, cole slaw
I am still feeling the urge to eat! I think I will drink some water as I haven't had enough yet today and it is so very hot here - 30C with a strong hot wind.
I realized today that I need to have "proper" meals. Just munching on nuts and fruit & vegies isn't enough for me... it is too much like the grazing I did for years.
