Join Us! Raw for 31 Days
We are starting Raw for 31 days on October 1st. Please join us and post how you are doing everyday, and what you ate. I would also love if people post articles, or videos that help them (I know that helps me through the day).
Thanks and hopefully talk to you soon :)
I'm in! I posted a similar topic this morning. I will be 30 on November 1st, so I wanted to do 30 days at 100% before I'm 30.
Count me in!
I'm in too!
I am in!
i'll do it, too!!! why not? i'm gonna try to keep my fat intake down as well. it's been creeping up so my mentality is now... Eat more fruit!
Ok i'M in too, anyway I'm doint a 90days 100% raw as a personal challenge, i'm on day 20 today, so I'll be with you during your 31 days challenge! Let's do it :)
heyy!! this is perfect i was planning on starting tomorrow anyways so walah!!! :D good luck to everybody ive just been on the vegan thing the past couple months so this should be interesting :]
I'm in! I'll totally do this. You know, it actually takes 30 days to make a habit. This will be perfect!
I've been trying to go a month 100% so I'll join in too!
Count me in--just have to stay away from bread.
Yah! I am so glad there is so much excitement, and the timing works out so well for so many.
See you tomorrow for Day 1 or day 21 for fonky
Go raw! Stay raw! I have faith in all of you. we will do this togetha. <3
I'd love to join in but I have a birthday meal to go to tomorrow which will probably involve bread and cheese, so I'm going to join late (on the third) if that's okay.
Just found this and all I've had today is watermelon, phew. Count me in!
By the way, I just got a dehydrator the other day and all of my recipes are bombing (I was hoping this machine would be my saving grace in allowing for bread and other treats). I haven't liked anything I have made. Any favorites? By the way, I made the onion bread and bacon (both were really disappointing) and now have Ani Phyo burgers and some nori rolls 'cookin' (with my fingers crossed.)
Good luck everyone!!!
ok day 1 here goes nothin!! :] im having lots of fruit at the student dining center lol
I'm glad I saw this! I fell off the wagon on the honeymoon and tried to get back on this week. Fell off again last night when I didn't have enough fruit to grab after a long day of work and had rice cakes with peanut butter and potato chips. I don't make the soundest decisions when I'm in a calorie deficit :)
So far today:
Chocolate shake - 1/4 cup raw soaked almonds, heaping tsp raw caocao powder, 2 dates, probiotics, and water
Salad with soaked wakame, cabbage, celery, kale and raw saur kraut (yum - I like it as a dressing)
dinner will probably be juiced carrots plus other veggies (maybe a wrap? I'm getting tired of salads) and desert from Thrive raw restaurant. Might splurge on their coconutty shake. I heart Seattle and the raw options here :) Yummy! We got an ice cream maker so I'm picking up coconuts for the weekend and planning on making dehydrated breads to help with the calorie crunch. I had flax crackers for the honeymoon and let me just say oh my goodness too much fiber (hot). I'm starting to substitute chia seeds and they seem to work better for me.
So far today:
I've had 4 pounds of grapes. Gotta do 60 miles on the bike to get a package to my grandmother now. Peace!
Cantaloupe smoothie... it was divine.
miranimal-try the Awesome Pizza Bread recipe on this site. I love it and have given it to many of my SAD friends who also love it. The onion bread is a little too rich or something, it doesn't appeal to me anymore. This bread relies on tomatoes for it's bulk, so it goes down easier for me. I make crackers using all of my veg pulp, a handful of chia seeds, a handful of pumpkin seeds, ground, and a ilttle salt. This makes a very crisp tasty cracker. Oh yeah, I throw in a handful of buckwheaties too for a bulkier cracker. Have you made them yet, they're easy, versatile and always work!
-100 gr watercress, 1/2 tomatoe, celery, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 onion, 1/2 avocado, pinch of himalayan salt and olive oil
-1 custard apple
-two slices of fresh coconut
-1 and a half tomatoe, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 onion mixed over courgette slices (1/2 courgette)
-1 cup of white tea
I'm definitely in.
I really want to move towards more fruit and less fat but im still in the mentality that i have to have my few supplements every day (stupid I know).
1 mini cantaloupe blended with water
2tbsp cacao nibs
Collard wraps for dinner!
Today I started with lots of lemon water, and for brunch had Strawberries, Peach, Collards, Banana, and water blended.
I prepared a bag of celery, peaches, and lots of fruit for my afternoon. I am going on a mini trip today to pick up a tipi, wish me luck!
P.S. I just wanted to thank everyone for joining this forum. It really helps to know others are doing this along with me. It might sound silly but it means a lot hearing everyone's excitement.
TOday I feel like not being very different...
about 12 bananas (almost all frozen, love it) half whole, half in a smoothie (with the spinach below)
Soaked whole oatmeal, about 3 cups
That's pretty it, going at the gym later, but i feel so tired :( I'll see, anyway, I'm on my day 22nd, I see you are doing well!
But I was wondering, what does a challenge means? I mean, does that means that you will continue raw after the 31 days or you will come back to your normal diet? What's your personal objective? :o)
So far so good, I started yesterday and did well. I still haven't had dinner, but I've been eating pretty well today. However, one of my coworkers made a gluten-free cake for me (because she knows that I can't have gluten) every Thursday we have "Treat Day" in the staff room. She really wanted me to have some and I didn't have the heart to tell her that I eat raw now, so I had a tiny piece (like a really small sliver) to make her happy. I really didn't want to eat it, but it was so nice of her have made me a cake.
To Fonky: I really would like to continue to be raw past the 31 days. I am doing this to show myself and my body the effects it can have, so that it will keep me motivated to continue on. Also, Sorry you are tired, good luck with the rest of your day. Day 22 is awesome, congratulations!!!
AVL- fruits and veggies cannot replace humanity. You did a good thing!
My new favorite thing to eat:
2 or 3 bananas sliced up
a handful of chopped walnuts
smaller handful of dried coconut
tiny, tiny squeeze of agave nectar just to get everything to stick together.
YUM! Its total comfort food!
I had watermelon for breakfast. Last weekend we went apple picking so I have been chomping on those all day and now I am having a revised version of the above salad with 2 bananas, an apple, and a pear. Inferior to just bananas.
daniefon- thanks a ton. 'Rich' is a good word for that bread. My veggie burgers bombed too. I think I am learning that I don't like flax. It sticks to my teeth and feels heavy in my stomach. Even my poop-factory SAD boyfriend was stopped up a bit after eating a slice of the onion bread. I'll try the pizza bread soon!
Breakfast: 2 apples, green smoothie of banana and romaine, grapes, and an orange
Lunch: Small salad and apple
Dinner: Salad with peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and pickles
Snack 2 apples, two bananas, one orange
I haven't eaten a lot, due to issues out of my control, but usually I eat three times as much food. It wasn't 100%, but I'm not going to beat myself up over having a few olives/pickles.
I am in too! I havent done this before, wondering how difficult it will be
