What are you eating

edited December 2010 in New to Raw

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.

  • This is a fabulous idea for a topic! I am heading away from the computer for a day, so I thought I’d post links to a couple similar conversations to get the ball rolling:

    Myself, I love to start the day with a green smoothie of some sort.

  • This is a great topic. I’ll start Monday.

  • Sorry that was me. I did not know that my sister was still loged in. Hehehe!!

  • Count me in!

  • I’ll see everyone on Monday. I went to the dollar store and bought a special notebook to keep track. Happy Holidays everyone!

  • yip i’m in

  • Here we go!

    I have a hard time with water, but I know I should start my day with it. It took me until noon to down 2 glasses of water (needless to say I got some work to do there).

    Breakfast/Noon – 2 glasses of water; green smoothie and a tomato, spinach, avacado spread on a tortillia.

    Late lunch – Big salad with that yummy tomato dressing (listed on site) and apple pie w/icecream (not raw).

    Dinner will be fruits and an avacado bc I work tonight.

    I’m going to try for a complete raw day tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes.

  • woke up late this morning…slept through my first class (gasp!)

    9:30 am drank water, soon after ate a cantaloupe 11:00 am ate 6 figs 12:00 pm ate a braeburn apple 1:00 pm drank some water! 1:30 pm ate an avocado

  • 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.

  • jenergy, is that like a cereal?

  • 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!
