I havent been eating 100% for a little while now but I cant stop thinking about this lifestyle and its just so comforting for me! I want to make my way back to the fruity life but I need some inspiration. So, I was wondering...What are YOU eating today?!
Love you all!
Bananas and dates :) And a huge salad at dinner with a mango cilantro dressing
So far this morning: 8 bananas and 3 dates in a smoothie and 1L of water
- Peace, love & fruit!
Watermelon first thing, then a Passion Power Smoothie, Datorade for lunch, then more datorade and an oriental salad for dinner. Nom nom nom! :)
Oranges for breakfast, bananas with frozen currants for luch, later one melon, some dates and tamarinds as a snack and a salad for dinner :)
Fresh pulpy orange juice in the morning, watermelon for lunch and romaine with fresh herbs, mango and tomatoes!
In order of consumption:
2 juicy athena melons
20 khadrawi dates
4 carrots/4 celery stalks/head or romaine
7 banana, 2 nectarine, blueberry, garden green smoothie
16 oz organic grapejuice (I know not optimal)
supper will be a watermelon
Come back, come back, it's all so lucsious and makes you feel soooooo good!
pineapple, bananas, strawberries and grapes so far.. Maybe I'll make some tomato soup when I get home with the new blendtec...
That looks awesome!!
True Raw Love: I'll come over to your house if you'll fix me this for breakfast. LOL Simply beautiful!
:O That looks absofruitly incredible! I want it so bad!!! :D
Hey Effy :). Greens are essential! You don't have to eat them every single day, but make sure you're getting them on. Do you use Cron-o-meter? That's a good way to check that you're getting everything you need.
Hi Effie, I remember seeing an interview with Dr Doug where he said that eating just fruit and no salad isn't 80/10/10. I don't have the book on hand to cite but I'm also pretty sure there is a section devoted to salad greens and the fact that we need to eat them.
Have you heard of the Boutenko family? The whole family went raw to improve their health, but found that their health plateaued after a few years, and they could only overcome this plateau by incorporating more greens into their diet. (Victoria Boutenko is often credited with the invention of the green smoothie).
Also re: Victoria Boutenko, she studied wild primates and their eating habits and found that they stopped eating fruit late in the afternoon and ate greens in the evening. This seems to be a habit that lots of 811ers have adopted, presumably because you shouldn't be tooo hungry in the evening after a few good fruit meals throughout the day.
