I'm on day 6 of a largely successful if uneventful banana (and date) island. I think after tomorrow I'd like to move to a little more diversity, without going to crazy. My story is that I've been back and forth from cooked vegan to "traditional" raw for maybe 8 years and 80-10-10 the last couple. I cruise for awhile, and then go back to cooked. So I'd like to use the departure form banana island as a constructive step rather than simply reverting to my olds ways, as Freelee says is often the case.
Because I have never been a big fan of greens, I was thinking adding dinner salads and/or soups, even if that means some amount of overt fat comes with that (still within 80-10-10,of course). I don't like green smoothies, as the reduction in sweetness from the green ruins the smoothie for me, even after years of trying to increase my tolerance of greens. I will do citrus mixed with greens and some green juice, though I know the latter is really not 80-10-10.
Also considering adding mango to the banana and dates this week for some fruit variety, as I'm getting a little tired of all banana all the time.
Thoughts? No matter if you've done banana island or not, I'm interested to hear from anyone.
Should have proofed more carefully before posting as this is chock full of errors, but you get my drift ;-) Looks like I'd better call it a night.
melons or oranges for breakfast, mangoes for lunch and bananas for dinner is my usual day. I also have trouble getting enough greens in just because im spoiled taste wise.
why would you increase overt fats? I never use overts with my dinner salads :)
Herro World, thanks for sharing your approach. Sounds like that might be a good next step for me. I like oranges and mangos, and I'm starting to struggle with the bananas.
NB, the overs are because no-fat salads are torture to me. I've tried some of the ideas such as mango-tomato dressing, but they don't do anything for me.
