I'm having stuffed peppers for dinner tonight and quite fancy banana whip for pudding as it's been ages since I last indulged. :-)
breakfast- smoothie of 1 frozen banana, 1/2 bag grapes, and 6 oz spinach
lunch- 4 cups fresh grapefruit juice and 3 apples (so far at least haha i won't get back from school for another 5 hours)
predicted dinner- big salad of avocado, spinach, lettuce, tomato, onion, sea salt, olive oil, zucchini, and sundried tomatoes. i was eating too much soup and not enough greens so the next few days will be massive amounts of greens.
i was also in the mood for a huge smoothie...
4 bananas, 9 little dates, and a vanilla bean. yum. this is my favorite smoothie in the whole world.
i just started reading dr. graham's Nutrition and Athletic Performance so i'm definitely going to start implementing some of his tips into my diet.

A blended salad: rocket, avocado, carrot, sundried tomatoes, lemon juice and chives
I made a raw chocolate sauce with lots of cacao butter, carob, cacao and lucuma and dipped some strawberries. I only managed to have a little bit before my body told me to stop.
I have been rather full since but I don't think I've eaten enough today so I'm going to make a salad with some sauerkraut and grated carrots and courgette. And maybe have a fig later if I get hungry before bed.
I tried eating high fruit the other day because I am always so inspired by people's lists on this thread but I just love veggies too much....
edit: I had a bowl of grated carrots, courgettes, alfalfa and radish sprouts, sauerkraut, half and avocado and chives with a dusting of spirulina. Now I think that's it for today.
breakfast- 1 cantaloupe
lunch- 3 big bowls (the whole batch haha) of mushroom soup from this site. it is my favorite soup ever. after i puree it, i chop some tomato, onion, green onion, sundried tomato, and cucumber so it's nice and chunky. pure heaven.

Some carrot/pineapple/raisin salad.
One banana blended with water, ice, and cinnamon.
A chopped pear topped with 2 heaping TBS ground flax seed and two dates.
A few squares of 88% cocoa chocolate (scored at my grocery store, woo!)
The last of my wisdom teeth are coming in so I am currently unable to chew, which means for now I can't have my favorite giant salad and veggies with dip for dinner right now. :-( So for now my meals are either smoothies, juices, or clementines and melon (the only two whole foods I can chew with out making more mouth ache more).

Breakfast: smoothie - 2.5 C. pineapple + 0.75 C. sliced peaches (frozen) + raw honey + raw probiotic coconut yogurt + vanilla + .5 C. coconut water
Snack: 3 clementines
Lunch: green smoothie - 6 C. spinach + 3 C. grapes + 3 bananas + 2 medjool dates
Snack: 3 clementines
Dinner: smoothie - 3 C. pineapple + 6 oz. golden raspberries + handful blueberries + raw honey + raw probiotic coconut yogurt + pomegranate powder + coconut water
Snack: 4 clementines
Aw, Rawaholic, I hope they heal soon.
Our power was out this morning, so I couldn't have a smoothie. I chopped up an apple and pear and topped it with two heaping TBS ground flax seed. It came back on at noon, though, so lunch was a delicious smoothie of two bananas, some cranberries, a bunch of parsley, and five coconut water ice cubes. I'm currently slurping up the last of it.
