What You Ate Today



  • have_merseyhave_mersey Raw Newbie

    So far:

    Some bee pollen (unmeasured, just in the cup of my palm..roughly a tablespoon maybe 1 1/2)

    And an overflowing quart of a mango green smoothie. Spinach mostly, with other mixed greens. :)

    I am happy! :)

  • superfood2superfood2 Raw Newbie

    Greens/berries/fungus/seaweed powder with water

    Apple, banana, kale green smoothie (very large, about 3 16-oz containers worth)

    Apple, carrot, kale, jalapeno, celery juice

    2 Bananas

    1 c. strawberries

    1 c. grapes

    1 c. pineapple

    2 c. mango

    6 dates

    4 cucumbers, noodled and with tomato & sun-dried tomato basil sauce (no fat added), with spinach and extra basil.

    That's all for now that is planned.

  • Breakfast: 2 frozen bananas and a lara bar, spoon full of hemp seeds

    Coconut water

    Lunch: salad with an apple

    carrots with peanut butter

    Dinner: huge salad with beet and kolrabi and braggs

    2 asian pears

  • My first day back on (mostly) raw food. I'm 6 months pregnant.

    breakfast: a big mango-parsley smoothie (heavy on the parsley)

    lunch: 2 fuji apples and 1/2 cup cashews (not the insanely expensive "really raw" ones, but the regular bulk bin "raw but probably steamed" ones)

    snack: dried apricots

    I just made curried split pea soup for my husband and 3-year-old son for dinner. I'm wondering if I'll have some of that or not. My other options are a smoothie of bok choy and frozen blueberries or possibly a quick apple pie (but I haven't soaked any almonds, so I'd have to grind them from dry). I kind of feel like I need something non-sweet, so I don't know what I'll do. I'm trying to think of something else to do with the bok choy, but I'm not really a bok choy fan. I need to go shopping.

  • PirawnaPirawna Raw Newbie

    Banana rolled in hemp seeds wrapped in Romaine.

    Big mixed baby greens salad, cukes, tomatoes, balsamic vineger, EVOO

    Coconut milk mango ice cream, raw granola on top.

    Big leafy greens salad w/Chia seed dressing

    Broccoli Salad (from this site-YUM)


  • ParsleyParsley Raw Newbie

    Breakfast: orange, mint, kale, apple smoothie

    Lunch: sprouted buckwheat and banana milk (banana, dates, cinnamon, vanilla), handful soaked almonds

    snack: 1 peach

    dinner: two collard leaves with spinach dip from this site, red bell pepper, celery

    dessert: carob hostess-style cupcake left over from yesterday

    For the dip we didn't have any cashews so we used soaked and sprouted almonds, also green onions in place of the red onion, and we used some rejuvalac in place of water. The dip was really fantastic! White and creamy like nothing I have had since I became vegan! I pulled the red pepper, cucumber, celery and two lemons from the dumpster today...I still can't believe markets throw such things away!

    I think I will post my cupcake recipe soon...it was sooo good. I love having my own house, being raw is so easy.

    i started off juicing today, but ended up eating because i went for a 3 mile run in the heat... started with Grapefruit and Orange juice (fresh), then i had a mango for lunch, 1 zucchini chopped up with sun dried tomatoes, onion and basil for dinner. Yum. Oh, and I had an apple.

    Snack: Celery sticks, Pear, some raw pecans (found them at the fresh market, so excited), banana

    Some cherries, a hand ful of strawberries..

    Thinking salad tonight for dinner... but not sure yet.

    Have a great day!!

  • Like Fee, I love this thread too. It has some great ideas for meals that real people actually eat, especially really simple ones. I think it's cool how some people are so honest admitting the SAD things as well as the RAW things they've consumed. It makes me feel better about my own slip ups.

    So far today I've had a green smoothie with spinach, parsley, celery, mango, banana, flax and rhubarb. After my weekly fast (yesterday) I'm trying not to eat too much as I tend to overeat on Tuesdays. The chick peas that I've just sprouted are calling my name though.

  • When you do your weekly fast, are you fasting period, or just juicing? I was curious whether anyone has done a straight Juice "feast" as they call it, and what there exp. was with it. However, I am curious how you feel regarding your weekly fast as well.


  • Today started off bumpy. Woke up late, not time to mix anything up.... Breakfast i ate a pear, a handful of raw pecans halves and a banana. (whatever i could grab on my way out the door) of course i had a cup of coffee... still working on that one!

    Snack i had a cup of cut peppers, (red/orange/yellow/green) and a cup of celery.

    Lunch i had a cup of tropical fruit salad and two plums.

    Snack i had a couple of strips of peppers (i had more in the work fridge)

    Can not wait to get home and juice myself an apple/carrot drink, or better yet, mix in 2 cups of spinach, and have a great big salad with tomatoes cucumber romaine peppers onions cut up apples and raw seasame seeds sprinkled on top :-) and some fresh cherries. (mm i love cherries)

  • Smoothie: 3 C kale, 3 apples,

  • RawaholicRawaholic Raw Newbie

    Man I love this thread! I hope it never ends. :D I swim laps at my local pool about 3-4 times a week really early in the morning (6 A.M.ish) and I find that on these days I have a never ending appetite. Today I craved a lot of greens and bananas. SInce I didn't really have a lot of "traditionally" timed meals I'm just numbering.

    #1: Quart of water w/pinch of celtic sea salt and a lemon wedge.

    #2: 4 cups green smoothie (a mango, 2 bananas, LOADS of spinach, flaxseed, bee pollen, coconut butter, agave, water) {this took me about an hour to drink}

    #3: 2 "Go Go Go Chew" bars

    #4: A nice big salad (baby greens, red boston lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, leek, red bell pepper, shredded carrot, a whole avocado with some salt and lemon juice as a dressing)

    #5: A 16 oz. juice (carrot, apple, celery, ginger)

    #6: 2 1/2 bananas and a little less than 1/2 cup of pecans (I was on my way home from Farmer's Market and was starving, but I had nothing to eat. So I just grabbed what some stuff that I had bought that didn't need any washing. Eating bananas and pecans together was on the go banana cream pie! Give it a try some time.

    #7: 3 cups smoothie (bananas, brazil nut mylk, agave, cocoa nibs, cinnamon, and Nuvitas Naturals' Sprouted Omega Blend).

    That's it! Hehe. . . Later everybody! :D

  • Lobo, I fast once a week. According to Paul Bragg (The Miracle of Fasting) it is an amazing way to attain glorious health. Eventually, I will try fasting 5 to 7 days four times a year. My last fast was dry and I felt absolutely great the next day.

  • superfood2superfood2 Raw Newbie

    4 Champagne mangoes

    1 pint blueberries

    6 bananas

    If I get hungry later besides the salad I already have, it will be a sprouted rice protein shake with banana or maybe more mangoes.

  • FeeFee Raw Master

  • RawaholicRawaholic Raw Newbie

    Since august of last year I've struggling with my weight (trouble gaining weight) and my health (IBS mostly). I've been gradually transitioning to raw and and since the beginning of the second week of April 2008 I have been 100% raw. Since this time I've been having headaches and I think liver is detoxing. Today, almost a month since being raw I woke up with my head feeling really REALLy clear, it was like . . . WOW! I'm still having some digestion issues but it wasn't as bad today. I'm hoping that this is a good sign that my body is well on it's way to recovery.

    #1: 27 ounces of lemon/salt water

    #2 1.5 qt "serving" bowl salad of mixed baby greens, sunflower seeds, capers, with a dressing of blended pecans, coconut water vinegar, and garlic mustard

    I am about to go fix up a strawberry cobbler with leftover topping crumbles from yesterday; & will probably have a smoothie later on, since I haven't had one yet today.

  • sv3sv3 Raw Newbie

    Looking at what other people eat, I worry that I don't variate my food enough. I tend to eat the same type of smoothie/salad each day. Do you think this is really bad? This is what I had today and is pretty typical of what I have most days:

    Smoothie: Kiwi, banana, spinich, frozen blueberries, orange juice

    Snack: Apple

    Salad: Lettuce, cucumber, tomato, cheese with spring onions, black olives, lemon/olive oil dressing

    Snack: Pineapple & Banana

    Soup: (Non raw) Tomato & lentil

    Snack: (Non raw) Wheat free onion & herb crackers with salsa

  • FeeFee Raw Master

    Today I have had an orange and spinach smoothie, a dried fig, caponata, coconut flax pancake from Ani Phyo (not its real name but scrummy), a cacao and hemp shake, a HUGE kale salad and a thin sliver of frozen chocolate banana pie from The Raw Gourmet - it was even better frozen than fresh and it was delicious fresh.

    Two Apples, one Plum and some Dark Chocolate.

    Beetroot Tartare with Spinach and half an Avocado.
