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.

it worked to eat this way by my parents. Maybe I go eat in 14 days with my family, I don´t like going out with family anymore that much and most of the time I don´t go with them.
It will be a restaurant with has nothing vegan except salad from the salad bar, but even this is with vinegar :(
Maybe i will try to order fresh vegetable salad, if they still use fresh products or some fresh fruit ??? Never tried if this work in restaurants which have almost convenience prepared food
My parents gave me still this here http://comps.canstockphoto.com/can-stock-photo_csp8585234.jpg
, but I have no cravings for it and its bad digestive for me, is there any 811 suitable reciepe for this ?
DAY 7 (Sunday 7/1/12)
Food - 1/2 melon, 5 bananas, 2 apples, 6 Medjool, 2 plums, 3 figs, 8 Deglet Noor, 2 cups of orange juice, a gigantic salad with lettuce, cucumber, eggplant, bellpepper, tomato, zucchini... with a NEW DRESSING I love: 2 red bellpepper mixed with 1 Tbsp of tahini. My baby daughter keeps eating it and voices her appreciation her own way ('yummmmmmm'). Simple and so flavourful!
2094 calories, 90/5/5 (very proud of myself!)
Exercise - I went for a 45 minute-jog in the sunny Bois de Boulogne this morning. I was very nice.
Water - As after my jog, I had to rush to meet some friends and see my grandma, I didn't drink enough. Big mistake. I'm now having my 4th litre of water for this very warm day.
Sleep - I slept from 11 to 7 with no interruption. Great!
Feelings - I'm happy we had such a beautiful day. I'm also a bit sad my best friend and her family's holidays in France are over. They're flying back to California tomorrow...
Oh, and even if I haven't slept as much as I should these last days, my grandma told me I looked good. She said I had 'bonne mine', which means my complexion was bright. Yay!
