I’ve been browsing the recipes on this site for a few days now, and am really looking forward to trying new recipes and continuing down the raw path. Let me tell you a little bit about myself…
I’m a 24 year old father of two, 5’10 and 225. I typically eat large portions of fattening foods (Nachos, Chicken Tenders, French Fries, Hot Dogs, etc) and very little vegetables or fruits. I finally got sick of being fat and feeling like crap, so I made a bet with my wife that I could do 100% raw for two weeks to “Detox” my body and lose some pounds.
I’m just finishing up day one today, and so far I like what I’ve eaten. I’ve had the Walnut Taco “Meat” (http://goneraw.com/recipes/26-Spicy-Walnut-Taco… in some Romaine Lettuce leaves, the Avocado Kale Salad (http://goneraw.com/recipes/6-Avocado-Kale-Salad), and the Hummus (http://goneraw.com/recipes/9-Hummus). I’ve also given up everything but water and Soy Milk for the two week period.
I expected to hate the taco meat, like the salad and love the hummus, but I liked them all, with the exception of the Hummus but that’s probably because I made it without the Tahini (I don’t have any).
The one thing that’s a little bit daunting to me about the idea of eating Raw for two weeks (or more) is my utter lack of recipes to cook from. I know of very few to make other than the ones I’ve listed, and with so many on this site it’s a little hard to wade through. I looked for a sorting feature but didn’t see any—-can any of you recommend some of the best and most popular recipes on the site?
If this goes well, I might end up staying raw permanently, but I sure could use some help!
