What are you eating
What are you eating
I thought since we are all new here that it would be good to keep track of what we are eating for at least a week and help one another out with ideas and encouragement. If no one else is interested no problem I’ll delete the post. I thought it might be good to start after Easter or some of you might want to start this Easter Sunday to help one another out.
I can start so far this
morning: I had a slice of whole wheat toast (I know it’s not RAW) with avacado smeared on it with a carrot, strawberry, and banana smoothie.
Let’s here from our mentors out there – what a menu for a week might look like for you.
This is a fabulous idea for a topic! I am heading away from the computer for a day, so I thought I’d post links to a couple similar conversations to get the ball rolling:
Myself, I love to start the day with a green smoothie of some sort.
This is a great topic. I’ll start Monday.
Sorry that was me. I did not know that my sister was still loged in. Hehehe!!
Count me in!
I’ll see everyone on Monday. I went to the dollar store and bought a special notebook to keep track. Happy Holidays everyone!
yip i’m in
ok, I will also join – Easter Monday it is
i’m 2 plus weeks into eating raw and i’ve been blogging what i eat everyday at heartshapedsky.vox.com. come join me and blog what you eat on vox! it’s really easy and i love to hear what and how much people are eating! so fun!
Here we go!
I have a hard time with water, but I know I should start my day with it. It took me until noon to down 2 glasses of water (needless to say I got some work to do there).
Breakfast/Noon – 2 glasses of water; green smoothie and a tomato, spinach, avacado spread on a tortillia.
Late lunch – Big salad with that yummy tomato dressing (listed on site) and apple pie w/icecream (not raw).
Dinner will be fruits and an avacado bc I work tonight.
I’m going to try for a complete raw day tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes.
woke up late this morning…slept through my first class (gasp!)
9:30 am drank water, soon after ate a cantaloupe
11:00 am ate 6 figs
12:00 pm ate a braeburn apple
1:00 pm drank some water!
1:30 pm ate an avocado
Big glass of water with some lemon first thing. About an hour after that one cup of black coffee. Breakfast was a bowl of grawnola (recipe is here on gone raw… I love this stuff) with homemade sunflower-seed milk. I don’t really like the sunflower-seed milk that much, it turned out kind of bitter. But I was out of almonds. A little while ago I drank 32 ounces of water, and in about half an hour I’m going out to lunch with my gramma and I’ll get a BIG green salad with tons of veggies and sprouts at a local organic restaurant here in town.
jenergy, is that like a cereal?
I always start the day with a pint of cold water. After my workout (Leslie Sansone’s—nothing high impact) I have 1 – 2 pints of green juice.
For lunch today I had a portobello mushroom with avocado and tomato on top, and 2 apples.
Right now for dinner I’m having some courgette slices and a poblano pepper slathered with pianissima’s “Red Fennel Sausage Guacamole” (which is on this site) and a pint of beetroot, spinach, pineapple, celery, lemon and ginger juice! Yum!

Okay, it’s Tuesday 25/3.. for brekkie I had the usual green juice (apples, cucumber, celery, spinach, lime, ginger)
Lunchtime I had another glass of said juice, a bowl of yummy “easy cream of mushroom soup” (found on this site) and some courgette slices.
Dinner will be a green smoothie (avocado, apple, spinach, celery, spirulina & flax seed) and a grape and avcoado salad I found here also.
As you can see, I rely heavily on this site for menu ideas :-)
I’ll start keeping track today – everyone’s posts are making my mouth water! :)
