It's raw for me again. My first attempt only lasted about 2 days.
I'm not going to be strict raw, just very high.
Maybe someday I'll go raw for real.
I'm afraid of what raw will be like during a Montana winter. I think snow is raw.

Today's food:
Bananas, strawberries, broccoli, carrots, peas, watermelon
1 scoop of vega after my evening workout. (not 100% raw)

8:00 breakfast was 3 bananas

10:00 Smoothie, mostly water and frozen fruit, would be much better with fresh fruit.

Noon 2 bananas

2:00 PM: 2 more bananas

5:00 PM: finished the last of my hummus and chips (cooked)
Also had a smoothie with fresh fruit instead of frozen, much better than this morning's smoothie

That's great Montanavegan!!
I haven't been able to last long on a 100% raw diet either :oops:

I'll be interested to see how it works for you re: energy levels, weightloss, etc...

Good luck!

Thanks JW
Since I've gone vegan, I feel much better and have more energy.
But the weight has been coming off too slowly for me.
So my weight is my priority now.
Losing excess weight can only improve the other things.

Went shopping today.
Everything is raw except the walnuts. The bin said raw, but we all know that isn't true.

Hey there Mr Potter.
That is about what you have for breakfast, isn't it.
The strawberries won't last long. They will be gone today.
Most of it will last a couple days.
The watermelon, carrots and peas, a little longer.
The walnuts and dates get eaten slowly.

The easiest way to knock down the walnuts and dates is to put the walnuts in the dates...along with some cream cheese which is raw so long as you don't put it on hot toast.

I don't really like most nuts by themselves.
The walnuts and dates usually get made into a date/nut tort

1 cup walnuts
1 cup raisins
8 dates as frosting

You should throw coconut into some of those date nut mixes.
