B: Mango Smoothie
S: Grapefruit with cinnamon
L: Green Salad with spinach, romaine, avocado, tomatoes and sauerkraut (raw)
S: Strawberry Smoothie with mint and cayenne
D: Avocado & Pepper Soup
S: Mixed nuts (I was dehydrating them with something else in the dehydrator and they acquired this amazing, spicy flavor - yum)
It was SUPER cold here last night so I had some warmish lemon water in the evening, too. =)
Hey everyone! I just wanted to CHECK IN with ya'll and tell everyone I'm having a great month of RAW!!!!!!!! so far. I'm having a heavy eating day already. I've been up 5 hours, had a green smoothie. 2 carrot pecan burgers w/ ketchup. mac and cheese with some taco meat on top. blueberries, grapes, strawberries and pears. Now I want a salad. It's just one of those days where eating is what I want to do! I'm about to go to my sister's baby shower and eat the fruit salad I made.. :) I'm happy to see everyone doing so well on RAW and LIVING FOOD!!
Hello everyone, you all seem to be eating good things. I've had two huge mixed salads and raspberries and blueberries and a pint of orange juice. Juice fasting tomorrow :)
I thought I'd pop in and say hi. I am juice fasting this month, but its 100% raw.
Hang in there everyone.
Hello all! I am pooping like mad. It is great.
B: Matthew Kenney pancakes and portobello sausage. Not bad for my first time! It is always tough to know how thick/thin to put things in the dehydrator. Green smoothie of spinach, goji berries, msm and spirulina
Snack: banana and wheatgrass,beet,parsley cocktail
Dinner: Mizuna-pear salad and almond-pumpkin pate with cilantro and red pepper.
@persiandelicacy! I am also in CT! Where are you? My coop has alot of organic veggies from local farms - Willimantic Coop, if that is anywhere near you...
Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.

@tguch I am in fairfield county. I usually go to trader joes or whole foods but they dont have much as far as fruit is concerned just bananas apples oranges grapefruit blackberries and blueberries. they do have lots of greens
Today i had
flaxseed crackers with cashew/almond spread
avocado dip with 4 celery stalks and 1 carrot
romain salad with tomatos and peppers
hand full of cashews
not as tired today. going shopping tomorrow so hopefully going to try some new foods like portabella mushrooms and sprouted chickpeas.
I seem to have 2 lbs gone. yay!!!
Day 5 was pretty good, though I was a bit hungrier than I have been in days past. I had a Kombucha in addition to water today again.
B: Banana smoothie (banana, walnuts, cinnamon ....)
S: Bluberries & Pomegranates (~2c total)
L: Spinach salad with sauerkraut and sprouts with a raw dressing (ginger, nama shoyu, apple cider vinegar, hemp oil...)
S: Pineapple smoothie (pineapple, dates, ice, blue-green algae)
D: Spinach-Broccoli soup w/dill & lime
S: 2 handfuls of nuts (I was so hungry - had one and then went back for more ... and then had a couple more when my hubbie brought the jar over....)
Overall, a decent day though it felt a bit heavy towards the end b/c I had so many nuts so late in the day. But all good stuff!
It's a Clementine day for me!!!! Can't stop eating them!!!!! Could be because my kiddos have the Flu and my body is trying to load up on Vitamin C...
I hope it passes you by Renee. Today has been good. Need to drink more water though.
day 1 - Success!
had a few dehydrated apple pieces, and some raw salsa i ate with chips. and a little bit of orange juice and these brand new kombucha sodas, has anyone heard of them? they're really good, and the revive rootbeer is the best flavor.
Yesterday celebrated daughters sweet sixteen so only did 75% raw
salad romain, celery, curry cashew/almond patte
avocado and sweet potato rolls with cooked rice and cooked sweet potatos (cooked culprit)
handful of cashews
2 cups of green tea
last 2 nights been sleeping much better. yesterday my legs ached when i took hot shower. mom and daughter said my face lose weight/fat.
Happy raw morning.
the sodas don't sound raw. Have you checked that Yoru? Otherwise, how on earth are you surviving on so little food?
