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!
