30 Bananas a Day!

I started eating more bananas yesterday, while also having a salad with nuts, sprouts, and oils.  Today, I have had 5 bananas and 10 dates.  Not enough, I know.  I'm excited about the potential of this lifestyle!  Too bad I have to wait until the first week of March before the 80-10-10 book I ordered arrives.  Wish it was available on Kindle!

Today I still drank coffee (with homemade raw almond milk & raw cane sugar) but the cool thing was I didn't crave it as much.  I think this time, I'll be successful giving it up!

My biggest concern right now is how to get enough bananas!  My 16-year-old son is also interested in trying this-- he wants to be vegan, but is an extremely picky eater.  He's totally willing to go all fruit, though.  So I think it might be a challenge to figure out how to get enough bananas for the two of us!  I'm only partially kidding... it looks like there are many fruits that are suitable. I'll be stocking up on more fruit tonight.

Does anyone here get their fruits and veggies through a CSA?  I'm planning to grow greens in my window boxes and tomatoes in my garden, but I would also love to support local (non-animal) agriculture.

Way to go!!! Green smoothies are a great way to get lots of nutrition and they taste good. By adding fruit to the blended greens the fruit over powers the bitter green flavors. Monkeys will wrap leaves around fruit (to make a green smoothie in their mouth;) . I recommend these to every body and epecially your picky eater because he needs lots of nutrition and greens are packed full. To make: fill blender w/ greens (kale, spinach, etc the darker green plants are more nutritious than something like iceberg). Add appox 3/4 cup- 1 cup water. Blend on high til liquified. Then add fruit; 3 bananas and a couple of dates is a good basic smoothie. I like to add nuts; I soak approx 1/4 cup almonds in filtered water for a couple hours or over night. What ever you do; make sure you blend the greens first w/ just water. Otherwise the greens don't break down all the way and you'll have stringy greens which can be a bit disturbing when drinking it. For your coffee I'd recommend shying away from sugar- it has a big effect on the body. Try honey or agave (pure maple syrup is awesome but not raw). Good luck! Way to go! 80-10-10 is amazing but also know that there are lots of different raw food diets and no-one is perfect for everbody. If it works for you great! But if it doesn't don't give up on raw! Youtube is a wonderful and quick resource; just type in the search bar, "raw food" and you will get a plethera of raw fooders' videos. It was my salvation to feeling a sense of community.
Peace & happiness

Thanks!  It's getting close to peach time, which means people will be selling crates of peaches out of vans at the gas station.  I actually got a local watermelon at the store tonight (yay, Texas!)  And I'll be able to eat off my fig tree once it starts fruiting.

If you talk to the people at your grocery stores or produce markets and tell them your situation, many will sell you produce in bulk. I get organic bananas by 40 lb. cases from Trader Joes. You can also look up wholesalers of produce in your area. Always remember to smile and ask nicely.  =)
