What You Ate Today
I am trying to be more raw again (starting today!). I thought this would be a good place for people to record what they ate with links to recipes. So far (March 29th) I have had a bowl of fresh pineapple.
breakfast- smoothie of 1 banana, 2 pears, 1/4 mango, and 1 tangerine.
lunch- half package of kelp noodles with braggs and nooch.
so far, i'm feelin good!!
bowl of fruit and nut including asian pear, half an apple, a banana, a couple strawberries, goji berries, and some walnuts with raw buckwheat groats...super tasty and satisfying
Right now munching on raw almonds. Also had an apple - making a grocery list.
Breakfast - small banana, tangerine, small apple and pear - chopped up and topped with cacao sauce (1 tsp cacao 1tsp agave and water)
Lunch - 3 date and orange slices (in the car in a car park when I got lost due to roadworks attempting to get to a potluck)
Mid afternoon - Hempy banana shake
Tea - lettuce, zuchini and carrot salad with basic raw pizza
breakfast- 3 bananas
lunch- 10 navel oranges
dinner- 5-10 bananas
this varies a lot day to day.
Fee - your breakfast sounds delicious - I will have to try that sometime!
Breakfast smoothie was raw cacao with soaked chia seeds, soaked goji's and bananas with bee pollen, boku superfood powder and maca powder and TONS OF spinach.
Spirulina & Chlorella tabs with cucumber apple celery juice with a tablespoon of vitamineral green in it.
Banana celery kiwi smoothie.

Just finished a Wilted Spinach Salad with Marinated Onions in a Mustard Seed Dressing from Ani Phyo's book.
It was great!
green juice (apple, celery, romaine, parsley, ginger)
large green salad with tahini dressing
a couple of ani's donut holes
March 30, 2009 - Starting the day with a coffeee (which I am going to eventually quit, will keep drinking tea though) and a couple of apples.
Thank you Sunrise - it was delicious and so quick too. Sometimes I just use banana and add a spoonful of tahini to the sauce and once Ive poured over the sauce sprinkle on some dried coconut. It looks really pretty and makes a great dessert. I hope you enjoy it when you try it. I guess we could call it a chocolate fruit salad.

kevin, what do you think of persimmons?? (obviously, you like them!) i've always wondered if they taste too much like tomatoes.
Oh wow persimmons! I didn't think they were in season right now. I'm dying to make this persimmon short cake that was recently posted on the RFC by Carmella Soleil. It looks amazing! But I figured I'd have to wait until next fall or sometime in the summer. I'll be checking the co-op for persimmons today!
Kevin, do you live in a warm climate to be enjoying persimmons right now? If so, you're so lucky as they are delish! :-)
ps - Joannabanna, I find them to be very sweet and rich with a custard-like texture. I used to eat a lot more when we lived out in Encinitas Ca (back in the late 90s)
Kevin, I was wondering how often you incorporate greens into your diet? Do you ever eat green smoothies?
if you let them ripen until they look super over ripe, they are really nothing like tomatoes. much sweeter.

mid-morning snack: 1 large apple
Lunch: large spinach salad.
Breakfast: a biiiiig juicy grapefruit and coffee (sorry, I don't wanna give it up!!)
Lunch: green smoothie (strawberries, banana, orange juice, spinach, cinnamon, ginger)
Dinner: cauliflower (chopped like rice) with tomato, asparagus guacamole (from this site) and shredded carrot....usually I have a salad but I'm running out of greens so I'm trying to use up my cauliflower before I go on a grocery run
Snack: Sunflower seed, almond, and raisin trail mix
Breakfast: Big fruit salad (1 apple, 1 orange, 1 kiwi, 1 banana, 1/2 mango, few strawberries) topped with 1 cup walnut milk.
Lunch: Big green smoothie (frozen mango, mixed berries, 1/2 banana, 1 orange juiced, 2 cups mixed greens, 1.5 cups water).

Kevin, do you feel you get your full nutrition from fruits? I am curious, as I definitely notice a difference in energy when I have not been getting my greens. Where do you get your iron, calcium, vitamin K?
