High Raw Food Diet Challenge - Day 9

by Trina
(Growing Raw Health)

I feel energised and alive.




Now I'm eating more calories my energy is picking up. Raw food health is starting to show again in my skin and eyes, even though I'm still drinking coffee. That's very encouraging, and it's about this time that a raw food diet becomes self-perpetuating. You start to feel so good that you're extra motivated and your taste buds seem to awaken to the diverse flavours of raw food.


Last night I paid for not following my own digestion tips. I overdosed on broccoli salad (it’s very more-ish) but I scoffed it instead of chewing. It took my stomach half the night to deal with it.


Proper food combining guidelines still apply, even if you’re eating a raw food diet. I especially try to follow the guideline about eating fruit as a separate meal, or first before other foods. Fruit digests so quickly that you don’t want other foods holding up its progress through your stomach and giving it time to ferment and cause bloating. Melon in particular is a good starter, eaten 30 minutes before the rest of your meal.


My beloved neighbours came over this morning for a coffee, but ended up starting with a green smoothie. I’d spoken to them previously about my high raw challenge, and they’ve intended to get into fruity smoothies regularly for a while. It all came together and we experimented with a parsley, pear, banana and ice combination that everyone loved.


I get very excited when people take green smoothies seriously. It usually only takes one sip for sceptics to be pleasantly surprised, then enthused by the idea of drinking something so healthy, delicious and easy to make on a daily basis.
