Lunch – HUGE salad with the tomato dressing from this site. 5 pretzel crackers.
I want to make the RAW choc. but the cacoa, nips and all that stuff is confusing to me – not to mention expensive. So I try and do the dark choc.The bagel at work? Well I didn’t really prepare for breakfast and I was late – and there it was – my GOD - what have I done? Ok – that was a joke -bad one, but it made me laugh. And you are right about the greens.

2 plums and a pear and a lara bar
2 nori wraps (full sheets) and more of the almond butter/agave/coconut oil (which has become my personal vegan crack)
1 1/2 litres water
I hope you guys don’t mind if I do this, but just want to give a little advice from someone who eats 100%.
Girlfridae1 = You are not eating that much honestly, but I will say try to stop limiting yourself just starting out eat RAW as much as you want just make sure you are hungry and not just eating because LARA BARS are on sale at $1.29 HEE HEE I am guilty of this last month.
EnjoyRAW = Up your green intake it seems that you are not getting enough which is making you still lean on bagels at work know what I mean. Get in that kitchen and make your some RAW chocolate treats don’t waste your money on that other chocolate. As far as the water goes, add some organic lemon to give it some taste. I get most of my water from what I eat, but if you feel you need to get your water in make sure it’s from a clean source.
MUCH love to all, I love reading these post you guy’s have great discipline just by being able to do this so I know you can do RAW/LIVING foods just go for it.
Thanks for the advice ardesmond2 and yeah I probably could do without the Lara bars, but when my box of vegan food arrived last week from the states (I live in Europe), it’s hard not to ‘justify’ testing everything out:)
You are very knowledgeable about raw eating so maybe you can help….can I eat fruit and vegetables together? About an hour after lunch and then again after dinner, I get a serious sweet tooth….
first thing-500 mL water with ACV/
after long run breakfast: soft serve raw ice kream of coconut, chlorella, banana, flax/snack: few dates with strawberries/snack: apple and handful soaked almonds/dinner: big salad with sprouts, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado/ few cups of herbal tea in between
I look at this way GIRLFRIDAE, everyone is different me I was never a big fruit fan so I don’t eat that much fruit unless it’s a green smoothie. I would test it out and see, a lot of people drive themselves crazy with the Hygienic Food Combining when it’s just not necessary. As you are doing here keep a food journal for yourself and see what works for you. I myself remember having the worst gas and belly aches starting out, now I can eat nuts, fruit, veggies together whenever I want at all times of the day, but you have to have a lot of greens in you to do that. I buy a serious amount of green leafy vegetables it makes up 90% of my diet. So I tell you what I am getting ready to eat a grapefruit to test your theory and see how I feel. :)
Thurs 27/3 Brekkie: The usual green juice (apple, spinach, celery, cucumber, lime, ginger)
Lunch: Avocado stuffed with sundried tomato and basil, more green juice, celery & carrot stix

I wasn’t here yesterday because I did a midweek water fast and couldn’t bear to see all the good things people were eating!!
Hi Folks: Good input, Ardesmond. I’ve love to up my green intake. I received my vitamix two days ago, and I have 2 green smoothies a day. I suppose the other greens could be in salads… 90% of your diet being greens is so wonderful! I’ll take your advice and eat as much as I’m hungry, since i’m new to raw.
