Raw Food Day 1

with one comment

Today I started a raw food challenge. This one will only be two weeks long because that’s how much time I have left before my sailing trip. It’s quite simple, I’m eating raw (or live) fruits, veggies and nuts just like every other species on the planet. No cooking, no heating, no coffee. WAIT! NO COFFEE?!?! Yeah, that’s the worst part. But it’s only for two weeks. The only exception I’m making (so far) is bottled fruit juices. Those aren’t technically raw since they are pasteurized. But I’m too lazy and I don’t have a juicer.

“Fruit Cocktail” for Breakfast: 1/2 grapefruit, 1 1/2 cups strawberries, 1 cup grapes, 1 medium apple, 8 fl oz orange juice.

WW Points: 5.5

“Boring Salad” for Lunch: 2 cups spinach, 1 cup cucumber, 1/2 shredded carrots, 1/2 chopped bell peppers, 1 1/2 cups broccoli.

WW Points: 0 (I’ll add a dressing next time)

Afternoon snack: 1 large banana, 1 Naked orange carrot juice.

WW Points: 7

“Awesome Salad” for dinner: 2 cups spinach, 1/2 tomato, 5 baby bella mushrooms, 1/2 cup sugar snap peas, 1/2 green pepper, 1/2 small onion, 1/4 cup raw walnuts, 1 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds. “Awesome Dressing” consists of 1/4 cup mashed avocado and 1/4 orange juice. It is amazingly delicious.

WW Points: 10

“Coconut Kefir Fruit Smoothie” for dessert: 1 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk Keffir (vegan, soy free, gluten free, but it’s probably not raw), 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen peaches, 1/2 cup frozen mango, 1/2 tbsp raw honey.

WW Points: 5

Total WW Points for the day: 27.5 (of 31)
