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.



  • 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!

  • Yesterday:

    English muffin w/ Earth Balance, tea

    Veggie sushi, primarily cucumber, avocado and mushroom

    A few jalapeno poppers (I posted the recipe)

    Dinner was kelp noodles with diced green peppers, spring onions, tomato, cucumbers, carrot with tamarind/garlic/cashew sauce

    Lots of water, red wine


    Non-raw granola with rice milk, tea

    Grazed at the farmer's market so I skipped lunch

    I'm about to make more veggie sushi and have more wine!

  • Ooops, seeing double.

  • suasoria, i used to eat the ezekial english muffins all the time. they were heavenly. if only they were raw!!

  • Breakfast caffeine free herbal tea

    Lunch : I had one banana and 1/2 cup of golden raisins and five almonds

    Snack 1/4 cup golden raisins, teaspoon of raw coconut with five pecans

    Dinner: Wonderful dark green salad. with seeds and sprouts


  • Well, let's see, I had a "Dolly Madison" walnut brownie from the gas station, a bite of a strawberry cream cheese danish, a chic fil' a sandwich with fries and a lemonade, two twix, one reeses peanut butter cup, 1/2 of a honey and raisin glazed doughnut, a small glass of pasteurized OJ and then I made a juice from two apples, 5 or 6 carrots and a bit of lettuce to try to make myself feel better.

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

  • Kungpao, is that all you ate today???

    Today I had:

    Smoothie: 1/2 cantaloupe , orange, banana, spinach, bok choy

    3 bananas

    mango/strawberry fruit salad

    150 grams figs

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

    wraps: romaine filled with zuchinni hummus (http://goneraw.com/node/8700) tomatoes, avocado, sprouts


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

  • bittbitt Raw Newbie

    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)

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

    Lunch : not there yet but will probably have an apple and then a romain salad with half a red pepper. If I crave it I won''t stop myself from eating a buckwheat sprout bread.

  • Coffee

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

    2 bananas

    2 apples

    raw crackers (at least 10!)

    bit of dulse

    large carrot.apple/ginger juice

    about 8 raw olives

    2 glasses white wine

  • Breakfast: Handful of blueberries, handful of strawberries, 1/2 cup of raw macadamia nuts, 2 cups of fruit/veggie juice.

    Snack: A gala apple and 4 dried figs.

    Snack 2: A banana

    Dinner: 2 gala apples, 2 bananas, 1 cup of vanilla creme coconut pudding, 2 tbs. raw almond butter.

  • breakfast - green smoothie (banana, frozen mango, fresh oj, kale)

    snack - way too much raw goat cheese, oj

    lunch - massaged kale salad w/ cucumber, avocado & hemp seeds

    dinner - salad with romaine, cucumber, tomato & avocado

    snack - coffee with half & half and then half a macadamia nut cookie from Costco

    late night unwind snack - 2 glasses red wine, 3 slices of toasted ezekial bread with more raw goat cheese

    some successes, some failures! I wanna know what people do when they have that "shit I've had a long day and I just need to shove alcohol and food down may face" feeling. Tips?

  • Breakfast: Beet-Carrot-Apple salad (All grated) and some Bee Pollen.

    Munching: About 7 cacao beans

    Lunch: Mango Smoothie.

    Obviously there is alot of water in between, and a cup of green tea. :)

    Dinner: Will be Broccoli juice with whatever other juiceable greens I have around (Probably meaning a bit of kale, cuccumber, celery), and some spirulina. :) I Looove greens.

  • I usually have some pre-prepared things lying around for those kind of nights. :) Also, as the other bad foods are reduced, so is the "shit I've had a long day and I just need to shove alcohol and food down may face" feeling. Otherwise, cacao and/or tea get rid of my stressed, and worn-down-ness..

    I love this thread!! I love hearing how everyone's diet shifts and what good things they are eating.

  • maryssa, i usually don't have enough bad food in the house (besides my family's food) so i'm not too tempted. i used to eat SOO many nuts so i don't buy them anymore. my main foods i love to eat are dates and bananas. i don't feel that bad about it after though.

    breakfast: 4 medjool dates, 2 bananas, 1/4 cup raspberries, and 1/2 cup grapes in a bowl.

    don't know about lunch yet. it will hopefully be an avocado roll if the grocery store sushi bar made any today.

  • FeeFee Raw Master

    Today I had apple, plum and pear chopped up together for breakfast. Lunch was saukraut, cucumber, small amount of kale and avocado stuffed portabello mushroom. Dinner was raw pizza followed by raw apple pie which I shared with my non-raw partner who had second helpings. I also snacked on dates and onions (I was making onion bread) during the day.

  • Maryssa - I tend to keep dried fruit around for the end of long exhausting days. I mix it up; dried bananas, figs, apricots, and dates. Dates are a staple. Dried fruit is very sweet and also very heavy, so I usually feel satisfied without needing to eat a ton. Cereal tends to also be a comfort food for me, so I try to keep some buckwheaties around.

  • Today I woke up pretty late (up late - and I still love my sleep) so haven't had much to eat (also didn't start eatring until after I got back from grovery shopping)

    1 cup green smoothie (papya and a green I can't remember the name of that I bought at the organic farmers market today)

    a couple raw sushi rolls (except for the seaweed wrap, roasted)

    1 coffee

    2 glasses white wine

    now snacking on "The Raw Choice" Chili -lime dried mango which I bought today while I watch a movie!

  • 4 pears and a date, superfood smoothie, raw lemon cookie, salad with buckwheat sprouts and half an avocado, sprouted quinoa goji berry raw cocao bar, and 3 more dates :) yummm

    Too full for dinner, but DH made a raw chocolate shake so I had some of that

  • Suasoria - your lunch sounds like it was soooo good! I hope that someone opens a raw restaurant in Ottawa soon - I'd probably go there almost every day!
