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.



  • Today -

    Breakfast smoothie was raw cacao with soaked chia seeds, soaked goji's and bananas with bee pollen, boku superfood powder and maca powder and TONS OF spinach.

    Spirulina & Chlorella tabs with cucumber apple celery juice with a tablespoon of vitamineral green in it.

    Banana celery kiwi smoothie.


    An apple.

    Soon will be dinner, apple kale soup and a salad with lemon juice.

  • Just finished a Wilted Spinach Salad with Marinated Onions in a Mustard Seed Dressing from Ani Phyo's book.

    It was great!

  • bittbitt Raw Newbie

    green juice (apple, celery, romaine, parsley, ginger)

    several bananas

    large green salad with tahini dressing

    a couple of ani's donut holes

  • March 30, 2009 - Starting the day with a coffeee (which I am going to eventually quit, will keep drinking tea though) and a couple of apples.

  • FeeFee Raw Master

    Thank you Sunrise - it was delicious and so quick too. Sometimes I just use banana and add a spoonful of tahini to the sauce and once Ive poured over the sauce sprinkle on some dried coconut. It looks really pretty and makes a great dessert. I hope you enjoy it when you try it. I guess we could call it a chocolate fruit salad.

  • 30 persimmons / 10 bananas / 1 personal seedless watermelon

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

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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)

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