Yesterday I ended a week of RAW (well, about 95%, I still had 1/2-3/4 cup of coffee a day to avoid the detox migraines) because of a killer ezekiel multi-grain wrap craving. Mmm. A sandwich made on ezekiel with some vegenaise, sriracha and avocado . . . Anyway. This was a great opportunity for me to attempt RAW - I wanted to try a month - because my husband is out of town for the month, and I'm pretty sure he thinks RAW is crazy.
Moving on. There's a page in Jae Steele's book, Get It Ripe, where she details what she eats every day, and it's a very sensible mix of fruits, raw veggies, cooked veggies, beans, and a bit of fat (in the form of raw nuts/seeds or raw nut/seed butter). So I thought I'd try that and perhaps a bit of Eat to Live (aka ETL).
So breakfast today was coffee (with kikkoman vanilla soy milk and some sugar in the raw) and a banana - oddly enough, that was enough for the time being (I'm normally starving all morning long).
Lunch was a green smoothie - 1 banana, 1 orange, 1 cup frozen raspberries, 2 cups spinach, 1 tbsp of flax seed.
A bit later, I freaked a bit and had about 2 tablespoons of chocolate and butterscotch chips. And then a Zen Soy Vanilla Chocolate pudding. Mmmm. Dinner was a chili recipe I found here with some brown rice.
I started my morning organizing my pantry (top shelf = unvegan things for the husband, and pleas excuse the goldfish on the bottom - le major sigh here),
and my freezer.

Back to my original point - I lost 2 lbs on RAW in a week. And today, some jerky guy called me pregnant. He didn't say it, but he did that hand motion over his stomach that says "baby bump." Fork him.
