Well, let's see, I had a "Dolly Madison" walnut brownie from the gas station, a bite of a strawberry cream cheese danish, a chic fil' a sandwich with fries and a lemonade, two twix, one reeses peanut butter cup, 1/2 of a honey and raisin glazed doughnut, a small glass of pasteurized OJ and then I made a juice from two apples, 5 or 6 carrots and a bit of lettuce to try to make myself feel better.
Congratulations!!! You successfully ate from the "classic" 4 food groups... fat, sugar, caffeine, and salt! lol
Kungpao, is that all you ate today???
Today I had:
Smoothie: 1/2 cantaloupe , orange, banana, spinach, bok choy
mango/strawberry fruit salad
150 grams figs
wraps: romaine filled with zuchinni hummus (http://goneraw.com/node/8700) tomatoes, avocado, sprouts
Indeed! I need motivation constantly. That is one reason I am here!
i am glad to see i'm not the only one who doesn't eat much at night. today was a weird food day for me but i'll post anyhow:
2 pieces raw chocolate
green smoothie (larger than normal): chard, banana, mango, coconut oil, hemp powder
(this was for lunch and breakfast)
then I got hungrier and there wasn't any ripe bananas in the cafeteria and i hadn't packed much so I had a pasteurized OJ which tasted bland.
2 apples later on at about 2pm
later on 2 cherry lara bars, a green juice of chard/celery/cucumber, 2 pieces of raw chocolate
4 bananas for dinner
This isn't quite how it was spaced but you get the idea. I've been having some digestive upset and the usual salad is NOT appealing to me. It could have been some cooked lentil soup I had the other day. I'm off that now.
It is so interesting to see what everyone eats daily - I hope we keep up this thread!

some successes, some failures! I wanna know what people do when they have that "shit I've had a long day and I just need to shove alcohol and food down may face" feeling. Tips?
Breakfast: Beet-Carrot-Apple salad (All grated) and some Bee Pollen.
Munching: About 7 cacao beans
Lunch: Mango Smoothie.
Obviously there is alot of water in between, and a cup of green tea. :)
Dinner: Will be Broccoli juice with whatever other juiceable greens I have around (Probably meaning a bit of kale, cuccumber, celery), and some spirulina. :) I Looove greens.
I usually have some pre-prepared things lying around for those kind of nights. :) Also, as the other bad foods are reduced, so is the "shit I've had a long day and I just need to shove alcohol and food down may face" feeling. Otherwise, cacao and/or tea get rid of my stressed, and worn-down-ness..
I love this thread!! I love hearing how everyone's diet shifts and what good things they are eating.
maryssa, i usually don't have enough bad food in the house (besides my family's food) so i'm not too tempted. i used to eat SOO many nuts so i don't buy them anymore. my main foods i love to eat are dates and bananas. i don't feel that bad about it after though.
breakfast: 4 medjool dates, 2 bananas, 1/4 cup raspberries, and 1/2 cup grapes in a bowl.
don't know about lunch yet. it will hopefully be an avocado roll if the grocery store sushi bar made any today.
Today I had apple, plum and pear chopped up together for breakfast. Lunch was saukraut, cucumber, small amount of kale and avocado stuffed portabello mushroom. Dinner was raw pizza followed by raw apple pie which I shared with my non-raw partner who had second helpings. I also snacked on dates and onions (I was making onion bread) during the day.

Maryssa - I tend to keep dried fruit around for the end of long exhausting days. I mix it up; dried bananas, figs, apricots, and dates. Dates are a staple. Dried fruit is very sweet and also very heavy, so I usually feel satisfied without needing to eat a ton. Cereal tends to also be a comfort food for me, so I try to keep some buckwheaties around.
Today I woke up pretty late (up late - and I still love my sleep) so haven't had much to eat (also didn't start eatring until after I got back from grovery shopping)
1 cup green smoothie (papya and a green I can't remember the name of that I bought at the organic farmers market today)
a couple raw sushi rolls (except for the seaweed wrap, roasted)
2 glasses white wine
now snacking on "The Raw Choice" Chili -lime dried mango which I bought today while I watch a movie!
4 pears and a date, superfood smoothie, raw lemon cookie, salad with buckwheat sprouts and half an avocado, sprouted quinoa goji berry raw cocao bar, and 3 more dates :) yummm
Non-raw granola with rice milk, tea
Leftover veggie sushi (I made extra the night before to take for lunch)
Yellow beet pasta with tomato, mushrooms, spinach, orange bell pepper, nama shoyu/ginger/garlic dressing
Non-raw granola with rice milk, tea
Lunch with my cousin, who was visiting for the day - vegan club sandwich with seitan, tempeh "bacon," lettuce and tomato on sourdough bread
Too full for dinner, but DH made a raw chocolate shake so I had some of that
Lots o' water

Lots o' water!
Suasoria - your lunch sounds like it was soooo good! I hope that someone opens a raw restaurant in Ottawa soon - I'd probably go there almost every day!
Oh I just love these kinds of posts! I feel so dietary-stalkerish in the most consentual of ways, ha.
Saturday my intake throughout the day was...
Nice ripe organic avocado, bowl full of organic flat leaf parsley and sunflower sprouts, water with a little lemon, fresh thai young coconut water... love, hugs and sunshine too : )
Note: I generally eat an additional meal, especially mono fruit based or a green smoothie, but today this is what I could do.
Green powder w/ water
Green smoothie (fresh apple, collard, kale juice/whole pear, banana/collard & kale leaves)
Green juice (Chard, cucumber, carrot, celery, parsley, romaine, green onion, plus tsp. of three-seaweed mix)
Green smoothie (fresh apple, kale, collard juice/water/whole papaya/6 dates/whole banana/kale & collard leaves)
Probably about 4 cups of sprouts and maybe one more green smoothie later, depending on if I'm at home.
Glad to see The Raw Dance again!!!!!
Sunrise - the raw pizza base can from Alissa Cohen's book (the easiest version) and I topped it with belended tomatoes, pepper, celery and sundried tomatoes and then some sliced olives. A very basic pizza. The raw apple pie was 1 cup of almonds (ground - I would have soaked them but didn't have time) and then added in 4 or 5 fresh dates until it was clumping. I pressed this into an 8 inch pie dish. I sliced 2 dessert apples with the food processor and laid them in the crust. I then blended 2 more apples, a hand ful of raisins and some cinammon to smoothness. I spread this out over the sliced apples. I also sprinkled lemon juice over the sliced apples. Hope this is of some use.
Today I offered my other half some more for lunch and he accepted, ate it, said "thats nice you can make that again". Yeah!!! I finished the last slice off at tea time.
Today I have eaten : Breakfast - 2 chopped apples,
Lunch - 2 slices of onion bread with saurkraut and no-bean hummous, raw apple pie
Dinner - caponata, a slice of onion bread and the rest of the apple pie
