Hello beautiful ♥ It’s now been 56 days since I started my raw vegan journey (so about 2 months)! I am the happiest and proudest I’ve been of myself when it comes to my body and health. I know I still have ways to go, but I feel like I’m on a pretty good path! One of the questions I get asked the most is “What do you typically eat in a day on this lifestyle?” This was also something I was (and still am) super interested in knowing about other raw vegans. I follow some great health educators to get inspiration from them, as well as following the 80/10/10 recommendations.
I love this lifestyle for it’s simplicity, it’s purity and it’s numerous health benefits. You eat super delicious foods that are just buzzing with enzymes, vitamins and nutrients. You can’t help but feel amazing when you eat this way.
The food I eat varies day to day. Some days I may eat more greens or more fruits, it depends on my activity level, my desires, what I have in my kitchen, what’s ripe and in season etc.
This is what I had today
500ml water with a touch of squeezed lemon
Breakfast (about an hour later):
Banana milk – 8 bananas (a few of them frozen), 1 liter of water, dash of cinnamon & vanilla extract (I sometimes also add in some dates). Blend up in a high-speed blender to a smooth “milky” texture! (Always make sure your bananas are ripe before consuming, otherwise it can lead to digestive discomfort. A banana is ready when it’s got little black spots all over and the skin feels more thin.)
Snack: A few dates
I always start my mornings with lots of water to wake up and hydrate my body! In the mornings, I typically have either banana milk or a smoothie (in a huge jar) or I will have a big “mono meal” of fresh fruit (usually either a whole watermelon or several oranges). Or I sometimes make myself a large jar or fresh juice from oranges, grapefruits and lemon. With all these vitamins I have no urge for caffeine!
Mango lettuce salad – 4 chopped mangoes over bed of 8oz butter leaf lettuce
Green juice consisting of cucumbers, celery, apples, kale, dandelion, lemon, ginger
Raw pizza – still perfecting the crust ingredients, but the base is made from dehydrated cauliflower. The toppings are tomato sauce (blended tomato, sundried tomato, basil, lemon juice), spinach, sliced tomato, mushrooms and avocado
I hope you enjoyed this post! I will be doing another Q&A video soon to answer more specific questions I’ve been asked by you guys. I hope everyone’s having a beautiful day! XOXO
