Being 100% Raw and what works so far!

I am up to day 23 on my 30 days of being 100% Raw and I must have broken through an emotional attachment to cooked food, as I don’t remember what it used to taste like and I have stopped thinking about it – I am now craving certain Raw Foods and it feels great!

All of a sudden the flavors of the Raw Food are exploding in my mouth! It is simply divine! Food has never tasted to so good!  And I am actualy craving less food too!

What I find is really working for me at the moment is the following food intake. This varies but I find the following is giving me a sustained energy throughout the day.

Breakfast – A big green juice or a one the following…chia seed pudding, steel cut oats porridge or buckwheat porridge.
Lunch A green smoothie or raw protein smoothie.  A am loving salad wrapped in nori rolls.

Dinner – Dinner most nights is a big green salad!  Some nights I crave a juice instead of a salad, this is especially the case if I have a protein smoothie in the afternoon.

A Green juice is probably the one thing I don’t have enough of – Especially as I am still 20130226-141241.jpgbreastfeeding even though supply has not been affected at all. I feel one the keys to being 100% Raw is Green Juice as the days that I do have a juice I feel simply ALIVE! I still feel great on the days that I don’t, but its a different energy running through my system.

One of the things that I do find helps with making juice is making a huge batch of it and bottle it up for the next day.  I will do a post on how to stop juice from oxidizing as much as you can by making a huge batch. Being a mum I know time is poor so this really helps! So stay tuned for that post 🙂
