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.

I'm just like you, Amber M. Gligor - I want to know everything about this lifestyle and I want to make a lot of recipes! Have fun experimenting and please let us know about the outcomes!

Everyone, have a Great Fruity Day!!
Hey Danae --- not sure how you felt yesterday, but one thing I notice is that some of the fruit you are eating together don't combine well. Which may lead to tummy aches/gas/strange poops. LOL. For example bananas and oranges aren't great together. Acid fruits should be combined with other acid fruits or semi acid fruits, but not sweet fruits (bananas). Sweet fruits can combine with other sweet fruits or semi acid fruits. Melons should be eaten alone. If you google food combining you should be able to find a nice schematic...Freelee has a good one in her ebook! Good luck!
