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.



  • SuasoriaSuasoria Raw Newbie

    Breakfast - non-raw granola with non-raw rice milk, tea

    Lunch - apple, pear, almond butter

    Snack - leftover pesto on a few store-bought kale crackers, half-glass of carrot/ginger/turmeric juice

    Dinner - zucchini noodles, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, basil, broccoli florets, basil, in leftover cashew cheese sauce

    Lots and lots of water!

    some red bell pepper, celery, a few sugar plum tomatoes with zucchini hummus from this site

    a lil bit of apple pie i made from yesterday

  • 30 persimmons / 10 bananas / 1 personal seedless watermelon

  • joannabananajoannabanana Raw Newbie

    kevin, what do you think of persimmons?? (obviously, you like them!) i've always wondered if they taste too much like tomatoes.

  • JoyceHJoyceH Raw Newbie

    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)

  • they were conventional, bought wholesale from a guy around here.

  • ParsleyParsley Raw Newbie

    Kevin, I was wondering how often you incorporate greens into your diet? Do you ever eat green smoothies?

  • zinfandelzinfandel Raw Newbie

    if you let them ripen until they look super over ripe, they are really nothing like tomatoes. much sweeter.

  • ZemphiraZemphira Raw Newbie

    Breakfast: Green smoothie - handful of spinach, 1/2 blueberries, 1 Tbsp hemp seeds, 1 fozen banana, 2 dates, dulse, cinnamon.

    mid-morning snack: 1 large apple

    Lunch: large spinach salad.

  • iluvlifeiluvlife Raw Newbie

    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).

    Dinner: Big kale salad (modification of Chrissy's goddess kale chips) with tomato, grapes for dessert.

  • RawaholicRawaholic Raw Newbie

    Breakfast: Large handful of blueberries, 4 large strawberries, and 16 oz of green juice (kale, apple, celery, and lemon).

    Snack: 2 medium bananas.

    Lunch: A large salad (romaine and boston red lettuce, radish, avocado, cucumber, leek, peas, grape tomatoes, green olives, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, flaxseed oil).

    Snack: Large handful of macadamia nuts.

    Dinner: A lovely organic mango and a few medjool dates.

    Throughout the day I drink 1-2 quarts of water (helps to drink the 1st quart of water an hour or two before you have breakfast).

  • i don't really like greens, parsley, not to my taste. i'm a leaning fruitarian, although I do like some romaine every now and then, but i can go a month easily without them.

  • Breakfast: 1 sapote, 2 small tangerines, tulsi tea

    mid-morning snack: green smoothie!! i juiced some ginger and an apple and then threw in the blender lots of collard greens, baby mixed greens, and some frozen banana. sooo yummy!

    lunch: kombucha, apple, and lotus root chips

    dinner: thai salad from everyday raw, spring rolls with tamarind sauce from entertaining in the raw. both amazing recipes.

    dessert: tomberlies ice cream and a raw brownie!

  • ParsleyParsley Raw Newbie

    Breakfast: I plantain, 1 apple, kale smoothie!

    Lunch: 2 yellow mangoes, an apple, a lot of dates

    Dinner: Kelp noodles with carrots, beets, purple cabbage, and the sesame noodle sauce from this site. It was awesome!

    Post dinner snack: 1 apple, 1/2 a raw chocolate bar

    What a yummy day!

    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?

  • March 31, 2009

    Breakfast - Coffee, Large Green Smoothie (about 5 cups - which I sipped throughout the day - peaches, two large handfuls baby spinach)

    Grazed all day - 2 apples, a few handuls of cashews, flax crackers, banana, 1/2 cucumber and fresh dill

    Right now I am sipping on wine.

    Trying not to eat after dark and I am enjoying grazing all day - I don't think that 15 minutes went by when I wasn't sipping or eating something!

  • April 1, 2009

    Grazed all day:

    2 coffees

    6 cups green smoothie (pears and kale)



    flax crackers

    several handfuls cashews

    1/2 cucumber with dill

    1 cup of green smoothie that I prepared for tomorrow (3 bananas, bunch of swiss chard, 1/2 pint raspberries)

    I think that I am eating too many nurs and but I think that everything will balance out. The green smoothies are really filling me up and I have no cravings at all!

  • BluedolfinBluedolfin Raw Newbie

    Congratulations!!! You successfully ate from the "classic" 4 food groups... fat, sugar, caffeine, and salt! lol

    3 bananas

    mango/strawberry fruit salad

    150 grams figs

    crackers (http://goneraw.com/recipe/italian-flax-crackers)

  • Indeed! I need motivation constantly. That is one reason I am here!

  • bittbitt Raw Starter

    i am glad to see i'm not the only one who doesn't eat much at night. today was a weird food day for me but i'll post anyhow:

    2 pieces raw chocolate

    green smoothie (larger than normal): chard, banana, mango, coconut oil, hemp powder

    (this was for lunch and breakfast)

    then I got hungrier and there wasn't any ripe bananas in the cafeteria and i hadn't packed much so I had a pasteurized OJ which tasted bland.

    2 apples later on at about 2pm

    later on 2 cherry lara bars, a green juice of chard/celery/cucumber, 2 pieces of raw chocolate

    4 bananas for dinner

    This isn't quite how it was spaced but you get the idea. I've been having some digestive upset and the usual salad is NOT appealing to me. It could have been some cooked lentil soup I had the other day. I'm off that now.

  • It is so interesting to see what everyone eats daily - I hope we keep up this thread!

    Breakfast - Water! (not too hungry in the mornings typically)

    Lunch - three cups of green juice (cucumber, carrot, kale, celery and ginger)

    zucchini pasta with a raw pesto sauce

    Dinner - Apple

    lentils and chickpeas with raw tomato, parsley and onion

    Late Night - three cups of green juice (same as above)

  • CarnapCarnap Raw Newbie

    Breakfast : Arugala and sunflower sprout salad with olive oil and some buckwheaties in two tbs of tahini, some agave and cinnamon

  • Coffee

    Green smoothie (pineapple, mango, lots of spinach) - about 4 cups

    2 bananas

    2 apples

    raw crackers (at least 10!)
