High Raw Food Diet Challenge - Day 7

by Trina
(Growing Raw Health)

I am filled with radiance.

I noticed last night when I was working on Growing Raw Health that my brain felt all foggy. It was like my mental energy had been burnt up faster during the day and there was nothing left to do except sleep.

Overall when I’m eating raw I find I can be more productive mentally; better focused, more creative at solving problems, faster to absorb and analyse research. Can’t wait for this to kick in, because there’s lots of work to do!

My ideas are pacing far ahead of my available resources. That’s fine, it’s nice to have so many ideas to come back to. I write them all down and will work on them later. I’m confident the most important or exciting ideas will happen eventually...

The cool thing is that I’m starting to feel excited about the other people who’re participating in a healthy eating challenge . There are quite a few people offline - wish they’d post :). It’s interesting to hear about other people’s challenges and how they’re progressing.

I’m nowhere near bored of raw food. It helps that I love my salads. However, I don’t think I could survive a high raw diet without avocados and bananas. Including what’s in my green smoothies, I eat at least 4 bananas a day and 2 avocados. This is partly because I love both these foods, but also because they make such easy snacks. A banana is portable, and if I haven’t had time to pack a salad I can grab a couple as I rush out the door. In my opinion avocados enhance every salad, and they’re also one of my favourite easy snacks. I halve and pit a ripe avocado, fill each hole with spicy chilli sauce and eat it out with a teaspoon. The avocado fills me up and the spiciness picks me up.

Day 7 High Raw Food Diet Menu

Breakfast: Green smoothie (silverbeet, parsley, pear and banana), 1 pear, 1 nectarine and ½ apple. Coffee with soy milk.

Morning snack: ¼ avocado, 1 banana.

Lunch: Vegetable salad with summer spinach, red mustard leaves, avocado, tomato, red capsicum, Spanish onion and coriander. Dressing of balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and olive oil.

Afternoon tea: It was a really hot afternoon here, so I made a tropical blend smoothie to cool us all down. It was awesome, and a great recovery smoothie for Bruce following a 100km+ bike ride. Our tropical smoothie contained 1 pineapple, 1 mango, 2 bananas, a can of organic coconut milk and a tray of ice. The kids loved it too, better than an icy pole. It would have been even better made with a jelly coconut instead of canned coconut milk.

Dinner: Salad with summer spinach, Spanish onion, red capsicum, tomato, avocado and a tiny bit of feta. Chamomile tea.
