2 frozen bananas, some raw granola, an apple, some strawberries, a papaya, and a huge salad..so far so yummy :) i really like this forum topic!..and an orange i picked off of a tree this morning!

Lunch: A HUGE salad from Whole Foods (dark leafy greens, onion, tomato, broccoli florets, bell pepper, peas, cucumber, artichoke hearts, & chopped walnuts with olive oil and balsmic vinegar as a dressing) and 16 oz. of beet, apple, orange, carrot juice.

Dessert: 7 prunes and 1 medjool date.
Throughout the day - LOTS of refreshing water!
Well after church I was invited to join a few new friends for lunch at a popular Asian rest. in the area. On the way I stopped by the store and picked up 3 corn on the cob, sea salt grinder, small jar nice olive oil and some tangelos for desert. We had a nice lunch and I never even got into my tangelos.
Later this afternoon I went to a BBQ at an old friends house. Burgers, Steaks, Hot Dogs, and all of it. I made a spinach salad with portabella, orange pepper, green onion, pumpkin seeds, and a nice sweet cream garlic/ginger dressing. We all had a great time and the sunshine was lovely.
It's almost bedtime and I'm still workin' at that salad...
Wow - I hadn't really thought about all I ate today...
Breakfast - my usual shake - fresh almond milk, banana, gojis, cacao powder, nibs and butter, maca
Lunch - fresh almond milk, frozen strawberries, gojis and mango
Snack - glass of fresh carrot, apple, beet, celery juice
Dinner - repeat of breakfast shake (I'm on mostly liquids until some stress induced sores on my tongue heal - blah)
Dessert - small sliver of raw chocolate mousse pie and small piece of raw lemon coconut bar
I'm stuffed and done with sweet things! Well...for today...
Got up, had tea, went to the farmers market and grazed on fruit samples, came home, finished off some leftover kale chips and dehydrated cherry tomatoes, had a handful of pretzels for lunch, then massacred a raw pizza for dinner - recipe is here - http://goneraw.com/recipe/pizza-crust-quick
It's so good. I'm exhausted from eating so well.
I've been stressed out lately so my eating schedule has been up in the air, but hopefully I will settle down this week.
breakfast: carrot, apple, ginger juice
lunch: orange lime juice
couple hours later: 1 avocado, i/2 tomato, leftover salsa, romaine lettuce
couple hours later: dried bananas
dinnerish: 1 community prepared rice paper wrap with raw purple cabbage, carrots, and cauliflower
after dinner: 1 piece raw chocolate fudge, dates, banana milk
I don't like snacking or extending my eating, so hopefully this will end with a more stable schedule and range of emotions.
In addition to these (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)

rawaholic, what is your raw hummus recipe??
Here you go joannabana,
Raw Hummus Recipe:
2 cups soaked and sprouted garbanzo beans (a.k.a. chick peas)
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. hungarian paprika
heaping 1/2 tsp. salt
3 tbs. lemon juice
3 tbs. raw tahini
1 tbs. freshly minced parsley (dried works too)
2 cloves of garlic
water as needed
put it all into a blender and let 'er rip until smooth and enjoy! You can add a splash of color by sprinkling some more paprika on top.
rawaholic, thank you so much!!!!! i'm making sundried tomato flax crackers for easter and needed a good dipping sauce. this will be perfect!! i'm not telling anybody that it's raw until after they try it. it's funnier that way!!
I make the same thing except I use zucchini in place of the garbanzos. You might try it sometime. I peel and grate the zucchini and then squeeze out as much water as I can.
breakfast : juice (beet, celery, apples, spinach)
lunch : kohlrabi leaves, red pepper, buckwheat bread, tahini and olive oil
dinner : spinach, onions, broccoli sprouts, red pepper, kohlrabi, buckwheat bread, tahini and olive oil.
Kimchi and miso soup - so far :)
it's 3:00 pm and i havent had anything. i got my wisdom teeth out this morning and can't eat anything. the dental surgeoun told me to get a milkshake but my mouth is still so numb that i can't suck things through a straw.
joannabanana~ Sending you lots of healing energy. May you have a quick recovery. If you are up for an adventure, try spooning a really smooth smoothie/soup into your mouth. Have lots of napkins handy (or a hose to spray yourself off afterward, *snicker*), you may need them. I'm not sure if having one's wisdom teeth out makes one wiser or the reverse.... however, one is wiser about having teeth pulled. teehee
EDIT: Another idea is to use a "sippy" cup and pour a smoothie/soup into your mouth... no sucking required. :)
11 bananas for breakfast
greens/berries/seaweed/fungus powder w/ water
purple green smoothie with blackberry & pear
chia moon drops (based off of ulimana chia moon drops but made at home)
5 oranges (juiced the parts of the pineapple and orange i didn't want to eat)
4 cups mixed sprouts
green juice with celery, kale, collard, carrot, cucumber, parsley, cilantro and three-seaweed blend
I did a lot of mono today:
greens/berries/seaweed/fungus powder w/ water
4 cups blueberries
2.5 cups strawberries
2 large bananas
3.5 cups papaya
2 medium pears
1.5 cups mango
3 medium oranges
4 large bananas (frozen & whipped) with cinnamon
I felt like I needed a break from greens for a day.
bluedolphin, thanks for your kind words!
i've been able to have smoothies today and i have a different outlook on food now. when i couldn't eat anything i just had water, but when i was able to get some smoothie down, it tasted soo amazing... like really amazing!!!
Today I have felt so amazing! I can't describe the abundance of energy and joy that just radiated from me!! Hehe . . . I love being raw.
Breakfast: 3 cups of smoothie (2 cups brazil nut milk, 3 bananas , 2 tbs. cacao powder, 1 tsp. vanilla, 3 tbs. agave nectar, 2 heaping tbs. Nuvitas Naturals' Sprouted Omega Blend)
Lunch/Snack: 1/2 of an avocado and 3 huge handfuls of macadamia nuts.
Snack: 1 agave & cashew Raw Revolution bar (I love this flavor because it has sprouted amaranth in it. In my opinion, this makes the bar taste kinda like cookie dough.)
Drink: 16 oz. juice (beet, orange, apple, carrot).
Dinner: Huge salad from Whole Foods (various dark greens, red & yellow bell pepper, tomato, cucumber, mushroom, onion, broccoli florets, walnuts, and artichoke hearts with EVO & balsmic vinegar for dressing.) and 16. oz of green juice (apple, carrot, celery, kale.)
Joannabanana - Good wishes on a fast recovery! I had my wisdom teeth out last year, and survived on bananas mashed with orange juice for a week (this was pre-raw, so I didn't know about smoothies). Make sure to gargle your salt water! My holes got infected and it was a mess.
breakfast: green smoothie (orange, apple, chard)
snack: 1 banana
lunch: green smoothie (banana, pear, collards)
snack: 1 dried banana, a little pineapple (shared from a coworker) raisins
dinner: large salad (romaine lettuce, 1/2 tomato, peppers, 1 whole avocado)
dessert: apple pie (apple, walnuts, sunflower seeds, raisins)
I felt uncertain about eating dessert as I wasn't really hungry after my salad and didn't think I wanted nuts so late, but I had already promised my boyfriend I would make a dessert (he made dinner), so it all worked out. :)
i'm so jealous of everyone's delicious meals!!!
parsley, a little dessert sometimes just makes you happy. i'm glad it turned out good. also, do you have any tips about what i can do to get rid of the swelling? i look like a squirrel smuggling nuts and just feel really queezy.
Yesterday I had
Big salad with lots of leaves, olive oil, olives, toms, cuc, celery with some flax crackers.
Dinner was amazing I made a sunflower type bread and had that with avo, tom, cuc and dehydrated mushrooms with a garlic cashew mayo and the potato crisps from this site. It was totally wonderful
Then I had two raw choc's that I had made for Easter!
Slurp making me hungry.
