Going Raw. . .A trial

Sunday, August 22, 2010

I eat a 90% vegetarian diet, so I thought that I might try Raw. For the past few weeks, I have been in a transition phase. So far, the hardest thing has been giving up coffee! Arrrgghh!! Well today marks exactly 2 weeks of no coffee what so ever! (I guess I could cold press it, but I am not fond of cold coffee in any form) Today is also the first day, of my TOTALLY Raw food experience. Last night my friend Marci and I made some Raw Zucchini Noodles with a spiraling slicer, some raw marinara for our "dinner" today. I eat my biggest meal at lunch time. Since my "junk food junkie" will have to suffer through for the next few weeks against his will :). . .I made a Raw Blueberry/Banana pie for him. It would be low cal if it didn't have all those nuts! I am going to stay away from that, but may have a bite of his to see what it tastes like!

Day 1 started out with 1/2 a cup of Apple Cinnamon "Granola" and some home made almond milk. Not bad, a little crunchier than what I am used to for cereal. It's high in caloies, but I figure I am going to need that after calculating out all of the caloric values of the meals I plan on making. You really have to eat a lot to get even 1200 calories in!

    I LOVE my vegan, 85% raw diet. I feel great! It's amazing! It is sooo easy for me to follow in the warm months. My challenge will be when the cold months move in (although I like the cold months best) because it is then that I struggle with wanting to eat more hot foods. Determined to stick to it!!! Good luck with your journey! :)
