I am 25 years old, in great shape, and a distance runner, hiker, camper, backcountry type, backpacker, surfer, etc. I am 170 pounds of lean muscle. I have unlimited self control (easy when I don’t really like junk food/sweets either). I have been vegan for two weeks, and just started raw today. I checked out carol alts book, and I plan on going to a nutritionist and getting blood work done after a few months of this diet.
Here is my diet today:
Wakeup… kashi go lean cereal (what do i replace this with, it’s not raw?) banana grapes
a few hours later… large ammount of germinated black beans with homemade fresh all raw salsa
a few hours later after a run… apple golean soy bean protein powder with almond nut milk
dinner… large amount of germinated black beans with homemade fresh all raw salsa bowl of broccoli with carrots with a half lime squeezed over it
later i am going for a long ten mile walk…after… golean soy bean protein powder with almond nut milk slices of avocodo
that is my first day. what am i missing? i am looking to keep learning and plan on buying living foods or whatever that famous raw book is called in a few weeks.
so if anyone can give me ideas of things to eat/prepare, ways to balance my diet and get everything that i need daily etc—that would really help a newbie raw vegan in getting started on a lifelong healthy diet. the self control is simple. the ideas for what to eat—that is the tough part.
Thanks in advance, The Outsider.
