    yeah sure! i think it sounds delicious!

  • hannahmariehannahmarie Raw Newbie

    any greens? i think you should include greens in your salad. if you are planning on eating the same thing every day you might want a little more variety.

  • spekgirlspekgirl Raw Newbie

    spinach is a green! and i have lettuce alot too and bok choy!

  • joannabananajoannabanana Raw Newbie

    spekgirl, how do you eat bok choy? do you eat the whole thing? i've eaten it once but didn't like the taste of the leaves.

  • spekgirlspekgirl Raw Newbie

    yer i do but i food procss it so it s nice and mixed with all eles i do agree not the nicest tasting on its own.

  • hannahmariehannahmarie Raw Newbie

    oh i'm sorry, i must have missed the spinach when i was looking at it! sorry.

    ok, so you do eat things other than that?

    i support 80/10/10 and enjoyed doing that when i first tried out raw and think i will make my way back that way, but many people lack variety on it, it seems.

  • spekgirlspekgirl Raw Newbie

    yer i eat bok choy and all different types of lettuce but ill be honest im not to sure about this diet its very hard and i dont know if i do feel to great on it : / still not to sure

    "Variety" isn't necessarily a good thing for our systems each day or each meal; eating simply can be a good thing.

  • hannahmariehannahmarie Raw Newbie

    i agree, superfood2, i believe that evolutionarily we did eat a lot of the same thing at once, etc., BUT if you ate the same thing every single day i do not think that that would necessarily be a good thing (not definitely a bad thing, either, it definitely depends)

    spekgirl, i would just go with whatever works for you! many people don't like so much fruit... i LOVE it!

    you know what i just realized? do you eat any seeds/nuts/avocado? don't they usually incorporate a small amount into the salads in 80/10/10?

  • superfood2superfood2 Raw Newbie

    Some 80/10/10ers eat no overts but others will eat 1/3 of an avocado per day or 1 oz. nuts (or less).

  • zinfandelzinfandel Raw Newbie

    i just ate no overts for 1.5 months and it was le suck. i totally don't recommend it. there must be some minerals in nuts and seeds that are essential.

  • superfood2superfood2 Raw Newbie

    That's not true. Maybe you feel better with overts but some people feel better without. Of course they eat plenty of greens, though.

  • swayzeswayze Raw Newbie

    zinfandel, I have not had any nuts and seeds in many months and very little avocado and yet I feel fine.

    spekgirl, that meal plan looks fine. Just make sure you eat enough sweet fruit to satisfy you. :)



  • spekgirlspekgirl Raw Newbie

    i think i need to include just one cup of cooked legumes everything eles will be raw but i feel my body needs this

  • Joannabanana- I am munching on a bok choy salad right now! This is the first crop in a while from our organic farmer so I bought 8 heads! I LOVE bok choy! I just mix olive oil, nama shoyu and garlic in the vitamix and throw over the bok choy (I think I got the recipe from rawvolution). Its a staple for me when in season.

  • zinfandelzinfandel Raw Newbie

    I wish I felt fine on no overts, but alas. I wound up with a weaker body and a flab tire around my belly and an extended recovery time after workouts. I am going to start experimenting with nuts and seeds.

    Do you have any tips?

  • joannabananajoannabanana Raw Newbie

    zinfandel, i've gotten so much stronger since going raw- i've added 20 lbs to my bench press since september! haha it's really exciting for me since i'm a powerlifter. i don't eat nuts or seeds often (just on a holiday when i make dessert) but i do eat avocadoes and find that they fill me up and give me energy through a workout.

    maybe try hemp seeds. i've tasted them and they are really delicious. just sprinkle on a salad or in a smoothie.
