3Aug09 - Day 1 (for me)
Hi, Count me in. Better late than never! :)
I was a bit late this morning and didn't make any smoothies etc.
I've brought a whole bag of fruit and veggies with me to work today.
Fruit: a selection of guavas, bananas, paw-paw, avo.
Veggies: a large cucumber and a tomato and some broccoli.
Also some goji berries and cacao nibs with almonds mix.

'nother good day
B: banana and 3 macadamia nuts
L: carrot, zucchini, tomato, capsicum, shallot and avocado salad
(1L by volume, I ate it out of a measuring jug)
D: 4 small bananas and 1 persimmon
I had never had a persimmon before and didn't know what to expect, i thought there would be seeds, but no. Tasted good enough to want to eat the other 2 i bought, but not a fave.
didn't have any nuts today as I over-indulged last night. didn't miss them either (ok, 3 macadamias). Little bit slack on the greens today too, as i had run out and needed to buy more.
Lisa: Uh, well, I was thinking of going raw vegan.
So far today:
Thick's cheezy cucumber rice (very good)
celery sticks w/cheeze spread on it
I feel like I ate a TON today.

Is it too late to join in? Mine started yesterday. Would've been on the 1st, but I cheated a bit after being stuck in ER for a few hours.
This morning I had a peach and a red apple with this (well, I don't have a name for it) 'granola type' stuff. It's a variation of the oaty apple cookie recipe I found on this site. Just had another peach a few minutes ago. I got a large basket from the farmer's market, so it's going to be peach crazy this week! They're my fave!
More moving today. I am trying to have fun with it. I am going to adjust my attitude and have a great, fun day--I'm grateful for the chance to finally be moving forward towards my goal of farm life. I've been stuck in limbo so long that I got used to it=)
cheesy cucumber rice(making a special trip for cukes even though my house is full of food bc this is so good)
I hope you are happy and full of inspiration today!=)
Yum, can you share your recipe? Thanks!

Lunch - large salad, mostly iceberg lettuce with some "field greens" (bagged) mix, (w/ the EVOO put on last night to "marinate"), topped w/ fresh sweet corn, 1 roma tomato, and 1/4 avocado.
Snacks: grapefruit, cherries, and pumpkin seeds. Also bringing a couple Lara bars to put in the desk just in case......
Dinner, I plan to make broccolini salad. One of my favorite raw recipes!

did the walk for an hour thingie this morning, feeling great!:)
This morning, 3 bananas, 1 tangerine, 1 orange.
It's winter, so have to eat a lot to keep the heat up! Still partly b/feeding too.
Horrible detox breath for the last 3 days (sorry if tmi!)
Feeling clearer headed, not so easy doing this when it's cold and no central heating in the house! Any other people in cold climes over there?
It's a beautiful sunny day today. I have spent most of my morning reading on my deck so I can get caught up on homework. I will be really glad when school is done and I can relax more!
I woke up with a stomach ache so only had some cucumber-celery juice this morning. Although I love to EAT celery, I've found that I really don't like it when I juice it. It just seems too bitter and strong tasting. I need to go to the store this afternoon to pick up some greens. It is definitely true for me that the more greens I have, the less cravings I have for SAD food. (And if the greens don't work, then I break out the chocolate!)
I had a smoothie with chia, blueberries, banana, cacao and some yacon syrup for lunch. Once I go to the store, I will have a big salad with sauerkraut.
Hope you are all having a great day - keep up the good work! :)

I posted it in the recipe section, I hope you like it as much as I do. I don't post recipes unless I really, really like them=)

Something strange just started. I have some kind of allergic reaction: My upper arms are very itchy. Never happened before. I am not worried but it is very annoying. And I am very very thirsty.
See you tomorrow.
Have a nicer evening than mine!
Good afternooon! Wasn't able to post yesterday as my computer is at work. So I'll post both days today. I'm committed to holding myself accountable for everything I eat this month and will post it all.

My lifelong food cravings virtually disappeared when I went high raw four months ago. For the first time in my life I felt unchained and set free!! But now that I've committed myself to this challenge a new demon has appeared. He talks to me all day long saying "You don't have to do this. Nobody can tell you what to do. You don't have to be 100%. This challenge isn't the boss of you!! ..... and on and on and on." I haven't succumbed but he's a pain in the ass! I hadn't really been aware of that defiant-independent part of myself. Now that I'm not stuffing my feelings and emotions with all that cooked food, the hidden me emerges!
Peace to all.
SW: 235 3/'09
After a day of citrus, bananas and pears, for dinner ate a salad with lettuce, bell pepper and 2 corn on the cobs.
Today has been harder, but I feel really helped out by having this forum to post on and read how everyone's getting on!
Thanks to all...
