Do you eat your bananas when they are very very spotty? If not I can understand why you dont like them.
Banana hatr??? That's grounds for an instant ban(ana)!
No worries, Vickie ;)
You're not alone here:
Look for the many no-non strategies within.
Ever tried ripe plantains? Look similar, with almost twice as many cals as nans but with a very different flavor.
Ah, plantain central there! Been curious about mofongo ever since I learned about it. Wonder how it could be adapted without the frying and inclusion of pig products that's common.
Do you have any Asian or Hispanic stores in your area; they usually stock the fruit.
you don't have to eat bananas all the time! eat them when or if you want them! I can go weeks without bananas and then there are times when I really want a banana then I would go and buy them! :) try other fruit like pears, peaches, melons, cherries, grapes etc! find out what fruits you like :) especially now in the summer - perfect timing to get organic/locally grown ripe fruit!
what do you mean by " getting tired eating like this" ? you miss certain foods? or you don't know what raw vegan dishes to make?
Take 3 large mangoes 5 times daily to get to 3000 calories, add more if you get any cravings or can't sleep or your energy starts to wane or you feel hungry. After a week or more start adding tender leafy greens in as your digestion improves and your stomach stretches to accommodate more volume.
Use cronometer to track your intake for a few days every time you change things up. For the most accurate results weight the edible portions of the food.
Ok so I know you said you don't like bananas, but you could try dipping your bananas in coconut sugar.. I really love that, because the bananas here aren't very sweet, so I'm not too found of eating them on their own. :p
Anyway, if you REALLY hate bananas, I'd suggest you could try dates? They are high in sugar and lower in water content, so it's easier to get enough calories in. Just make sure you drink enough water, so you won't get dehydrated. :p And for the volume part, you do get used to it. I came from anorexia, eating very little, and mostly LOW volume foods, so in the beginning I really struggled with the volume. Now I have no problem drinking a 2-liter smoothie in one sitting. :p
I know the feeling, but it will get better! We'll just have to be patient. :)
