Yep, I've got them on the counter. I have sprouted before but never made rejuvelac. =)

Raw Day 25
Was out again for most of the day, but I planned ahead and brought my food with me!
Breakfast: blueberry-vanilla smoothie
Snack: diced apple sprinkled with crushed pecan and cinnamon
Lunch: big green salad with sauerkraut, capers, corn, tomatoes, avocado
Snack: more blueberry-vanilla smoothie
Dinner: creamy broccoli soup - it was so tasty and filling yesterday I had to have it again today (recipe in RFFE) - warmed it in dehydrator so I could be warm, and topped it with nutritional yeast
Snack: raw dessert - it's basically like a brownie, but actually it was just the recipe for the bottom of a dish that you top with fruit stuff ... but I just made the bottom and ate it like a brownie as I was craving more chocolate this evening - totally hit the spot. And the kids all loved it! (dates, walnuts, cacao, dash salt, splash of water)
Now I'm off to make some warm 'tea' since it is FREEZING again here... and snowing.... and did I mention FREEZING?!?!? =)
Yum!!!! Queeny your meals sound gr8!!!!!
I ended up having bananas for dinner. Just wanted a simple mono meal. I made breadsticks today, so I'm gonna have them tomorrow with the Greek Salad. My favorite!!!!
Yesterday was day 26...
B: pineapple & cilantro smoothie
L: shredded cabbage salad with homemade sesame-cucumber dressing
S: 2 bananas
D: garlic-bell pepper soup and collard wraps filled with a celery-almond pate
Today - day 27
B: pear and ginger smoothie - YUM! and a big bowl of strawberries & blueberries with flaxseed and cacao nibs
S: orange & handful pistachios
L: collard wraps filled with a zucchini 'hummus'

Welcome back PersianDelicacy!
Today's meals for me:
Not much snacking today. I still have some Sweet Potato Chips left, though. I've been eating later and later in the day now. Not sure if that means anything, but my first meal has been around noon lately.
I made a funny observation yesterday! I noticed that my thighs don't rub together when I walk!!! I don't know when that stopped, but I like it!!!!
Queeny: Headed to Whole Foods tomorrow to restart my Rejuvelac. How's yours coming along? You should have sprouts by now relaxing in Fresh Rejuvelac Water. I'll catch up in a couple of days. Once yours is made, keep it in the frig till mine is done. Then we will make Grezzo Cheese together!!!!
Um Renee! that is amazing! congrats.
today was "hippie cereal" (fruit, seeds, coconut flakes and almond milk....anything else yummy tossed in).
giant salad with marinated mushrooms

Ummmm!!!! RedCedar, I LOVE Marinated Mushroomd too!!!!
I'm headed to get my Berries to make my sprouts to make Rejuvelac to make Grezzo Cheese to make my mouth deliriously happy!!!!!
@ Renee - Yup - I've got some Rejuvelac going! (Picture below) Today is day two on the sprouts being in the gallon. Not sure if I should strain today or tomorrow (?) - I've read different things where some say just let it ferment overnight, others say 3-5 days. My quinoa stuff is a throw-away. Bummer. It sounds like you're doing very well!! And I have to say - the zucchini hummus was a bit runny, but not too bad. I would like it better if it were a bit thicker. I may play with it next time. But it wasn't as runny as I've had it before so I'm improving as time goes on....
@ Red Cedar - I'm doing marinated mushrooms this week, too. So delicious.
I need to edit my food yesterday to add the dessert I had last night... I made walnut "candy" balls - walnuts, dates, vanilla, rolled in either coconut or cacao.
My boyfriend and I made a raw pizza today!
We used two recipes from Ani Phyo's book "Ani's Raw Food Essentials" - "Instant Pizza Crust" and "Sun-Dried Tomato-Ketchup".
We then topped it up with carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, lentil sprouts and arugula! It's really yummy and soooooo filling, I can't believe it! W00t! :D
I only ate half of my half, because it's really, really filling, but this way I still got lunch for tomorrow! :D
We also made orange and grapefruit juice for dessert! Nom! So proud. :D

I'm still here but a little derailed the past week. Various reasons, too boring to go into!
Starting the day with 1/3 of a large melon :)
Will start juicing at lunch time - pineapple, apple and carrot with a little lime juice and I have spirulina in the car so may add a little of that to each glassful.
Yesterday got away from me (didn't even get home until 930p), so here are my foods for the past two days:
B: Grapefruit smoothie
S: 2 bananas
L: Huge shredded cabbage salad with an orange-ginger dressing
S: Leftover grapefruit smoothie
D: Creamy broccoli soup
S: handful nuts
B: Vanilla-orange smoothie
S: Chopped apples tossed with vanilla and mixed with a nut "crumble"
L: Avocado, tomato, basil, olive, green onions, apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, olive oil - tossed together
S: Curried zucchini soup
D: Marinated mushrooms, cucumber, & carrots wrapped in large lettuce leaves
Glad to see people still posting - for me today is Day 30!! 100% raw! =)
I typically eat a large percentage of my diet raw, but since the end of summer the % has consistently drifted downward. I'm so happy to have started 2013 off with a solid 30 days of pure raw, including while I was traveling and hosting a dinner party. Just a great way to start my year. And the best part - my husband has been 99% raw (100% minus a cookie or two, lol) since mid-month. It's really cool to have him along for the ride.
Thank you so much for all of the support!
Right so, I saw the conversation above about Rejuvelac, got interested, googled it, realized i had the makings for it (buckwheat sprouts) and it is now day two. It smells like cabbage water. I. Am. Afraid.
Is it supposed to smell like that? Honestly, leaving sprouts at room temp in water for two days, I can't imagine it wouldn't, but I want some kind of affirmation before I dare sip that thing!
may have gained a pound...gonna go look at Renee's thread on eating low fat for a month. need some good filling foods minus all the nuts we've slipped into eating here.
