Keeping up my intake of raw food is difficult for me. The problem has always been the time it takes to put together the food. I find myself stopping at the macro deli regularly because there are no quick raw options for me. I don’t care to eat conventional, fast-food salads.
Yesterday I bought two 12 oz. stainless steel drinking bottles. I already had a 1 liter bottle. Last night I made 3 different green smoothies and filled the bottles. I took them to work and drank them all day. It was different but not unpleasant. The great thing was it fits within my lifestyle. I really like the low hassle aspect of it.
I know alot of people drink these things regularly. Logically, you coud live on them. I wonder if I would end up taking in too much fruit. I don’t know what it would be like having such a liquid diet on a regular basis. However, I think I could do this almost every day and not deviate from raw that much. I don’t care about being 100% raw. I intend to have a little cooked food or meat occasionally. I think I would like to be a minimum of 90% raw and this smoothie plan might get me there.
oes anyone have experience drinking smoothies as a major part of their diet? If so, how is that working for you? Have you seen any downside in your health? Does it create problems when you try to eat solid food? Any comment on your experiences would be helpful. Thanks.
