Day 6

afternoon: grapefruit, almonds, blueberries

evening: grapes, "spaghetti" = zucchini with oilves, tomatoes and mushrooms with watered nut cheese to make alfredo style sauce

snack: juice (cucumber, apple, carrot, lemon and celery)

I am starting to get more energy. I am also feeling less hungry, not needing to stuff my face. I think my body is like ahh real food and nutrients. Its actually weird because normally when im stressed (which at the moment I am) I eat tons, but right now im actually forgetting to eat.

day 4 (fail) and day 5

Day Four:
morning: grapefruit
afternoon: green smoothie, coconut cookies
evening: salad with olive oil, green juice (the one from earlier), but then 2 small slices of pizza (not raw)

I was so good until last night. I stayed over my friend Jill's house that night. I even filled up with stuff: came with a salad, juices and so on. She ordered pizza but I couldnt help myself. So damn weak. It has eggplant on it. I love freaking eggplant.

Im not going to get too angry with myself - although I feel a bit guilty. but I remember my first time around the third or fourth day I also had a fail.

Day Five:
afternoon: green juice - cucumber, apple, lemon; almonds; grapefruit
evening: onion bread with nut cheese and salad

i really wish i had a personal chef right now. no time to make anything more substantial at the moment.

Day 3

afternoon: grapefruit, cherries
evening: 2 onion breads with nut cheese and cherry tomatoes, peppers, and olives for toppings
snack: some green juice! (cucumber, apple, lemon, celery, carrot), blueberries

So the past two days I have had a pretty hectic schedule and havent had the time to think about what Im eating and feeling. Today Im at home working on motions all day and had a wtf moment. I had no idea what to make for dinner lol. This is the worst part about being raw. The planning. Sucks!

I couldnt sleep at all last night. My mind was going a million miles an hour. I remember when I initially went raw that my sleeping patterns changed a bit.

I did feel a little weak earlier tonight but that was due to the fact that I was obsessively writing and not eating anything. My body is probably going into a shock from all the healthy stuff im putting in as recently it was nothing but junk.

Back at it again: Day 1

So its been ages since I made a post.

For awhile I continued on the raw path. But towards the end of October I started incorporating some cooked foods and then come thanksgiving time it went down hill. I made excuses: oh its my birthday, oh im on vacation, oh its christmas, oh im on vacation again in another country - "so i can treat myself." An additional 10 pounds later, here I am.

I came back last week from Guatemala and the first thing I did was start making rejuvelac. After that I made nut cheese and onion bread. Today I start all over again my raw venture. My body needs it and my mind needs it. I remember how it made me feel and its definitely long overdue. No more dabbling in foods I know make me feel like shit. Its on.

morning: grapefruit, cherries
afternoon: green banana berry smoothie
dinner: half a stuffed red pepper with nut cheese and mushrooms, asparagus, walnuts

my smoothie has evolved into quiet a bit of ingredients in it besides the two huge handfuls of spinach, a banana and mixed berries. I also add the superfood berry powder, a scoop of maca powder, scoop of flax seeds, msm, scoop of spirulina and probiotics. I used rejuvelac instead of water and honey to sweeten.
