Starting on Mon 25th June (Australian) I will be hosting a 30 DAY High carb raw vegan challenge on my facebook page. Lots of people excited already, about 400. Join us! Please follow this link to the event page.
Watch my video to find out more --->
Remember if you are not on facebook you could still post your daily journal here. Here is the post from Facebook --->
Time to get your raw on folks! For the next 30 days, EACH DAY please come here and record what you eat, your exercise, water and sleep and encourage others to stay on track. This challenge is only for HIGH CARB raw vegans, 811-style. No superfoods or powders, salt thanks. Example is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtxFC4LHnKo
* Not only the joy of being 100% raw for 30 days but as motivation --> those who honestly stay on track for the 30 days and post here everyday (without fail) will get a free copy of my upcoming ebook!
* If you fall off the wagon please don't post about it here because it can negatively affect others on the challenge. Posts like that may be removed to help keep the high vibe.
* You must be 100% raw and post here EVERY DAY for the next 30 days to receive the free ebook. You *must* use the same thread day after day so I can read your journal. Journals that are all over the place cannot be accepted.

FEELINGS: Was really looking forward to the avocado today and it didn't taste and good as I imagined it would. I should have perhaps eaten it straight up as opposed to using it as a dressing. Great energy today, was great to start the day with a fitness class (haven't had the motivation to do that for a while). Might even do it again tomorrow.

zucchini, tomato and garlic blended for dressing, half a capsicum, 10 date and coconut rolls.

Several delicious Roma tomatoes, avocado, purple cabbage; colours beautiful.

about 5 large black mission fresh figs.
Evening is going to be 1 large honeydew, probably juiced.
p.s. I just remembered that I ate I think it was 3 bananas after the water, and that the smoothie had 2 more bananas, not mango; so it was a 5-banana day for me, which is a lot..

3 hours of heavy yard work a Haitian mango
