I thought since we are all new here that it would be good to keep track of what we are eating for at least a week and help one another out with ideas and encouragement. If no one else is interested no problem I’ll delete the post. I thought it might be good to start after Easter or some of you might want to start this Easter Sunday to help one another out.
I can start so far this
morning: I had a slice of whole wheat toast (I know it’s not RAW) with avacado smeared on it with a carrot, strawberry, and banana smoothie.
Let’s here from our mentors out there – what a menu for a week might look like for you.
i’m 2 plus weeks into eating raw and i’ve been blogging what i eat everyday at heartshapedsky.vox.com. come join me and blog what you eat on vox! it’s really easy and i love to hear what and how much people are eating! so fun!
Big glass of water with some lemon first thing. About an hour after that one cup of black coffee. Breakfast was a bowl of grawnola (recipe is here on gone raw… I love this stuff) with homemade sunflower-seed milk. I don’t really like the sunflower-seed milk that much, it turned out kind of bitter. But I was out of almonds. A little while ago I drank 32 ounces of water, and in about half an hour I’m going out to lunch with my gramma and I’ll get a BIG green salad with tons of veggies and sprouts at a local organic restaurant here in town.
I always start the day with a pint of cold water. After my workout (Leslie Sansone’s—nothing high impact) I have 1 – 2 pints of green juice.
For lunch today I had a portobello mushroom with avocado and tomato on top, and 2 apples.
Right now for dinner I’m having some courgette slices and a poblano pepper slathered with pianissima’s “Red Fennel Sausage Guacamole” (which is on this site) and a pint of beetroot, spinach, pineapple, celery, lemon and ginger juice! Yum!
Sunday 3/23 – I spend the whole day in airports and on buses. So, I only had:
1 fruit smoothie (fresh squeezed oj, frozen bananas, mango, blueberries)
2 garden salads topped with carrots/tomatoes, no dressing
2 apples with 2 Tbsp cashew butter
Okay, it’s Tuesday 25/3.. for brekkie I had the usual green juice (apples, cucumber, celery, spinach, lime, ginger)
Lunchtime I had another glass of said juice, a bowl of yummy “easy cream of mushroom soup” (found on this site) and some courgette slices.
Dinner will be a green smoothie (avocado, apple, spinach, celery, spirulina & flax seed) and a grape and avcoado salad I found here also.
As you can see, I rely heavily on this site for menu ideas :-)
OldDog- That grape and avocado salad is what got me started on the raw diet in the first place! Surfing the web, I came across that recipe on goneraw and took my first baby step toward becoming rawesome.
