30 Bananas a Day!

So for the past few days I have only had cravings for raw fruits. But because I had some ingredients lying around yesterday I decided to make a cooked meal. It didn't taste that great and I was not left with the same satisfaction that I experience after a fruit meal. Even thought I was technically 'full', I still wanted more cooked food, so I cooked a load more potatoes. I think I am now at that stage where I don't even care for cooked food very much, and the only time I'll crave it is if I start eating it in the first place. This is a great improvement and I'm very excited as before I always used to try going raw but would always want cooked food. A few months ago I asked for advice to help with cravings and switching to fully raw and a lot of people said that the key is to not restrict and to just go with what you want. This seemed weird to me as if I went with what I craved then I would always have one cooked meal a day. But now it makes sense! I have just gone with how I felt and suddenly I don't even desire cooked food. I guess for some people it just takes time.

My next thought was, if I do only want to eat raw fruit and veg, then how am I going to be able to keep within my means, then I realised that bananas are the answer; they are cheap, and they make a good meal. If I ever do get genuine cravings for cooked vegan food then I won't restrict myself. But right now I'm just happy that all I want is fruit!

Yes expense is quite an issue unfortunately, otherwise I'd be having lovely ripe papayas and yellow mangoes every day! I don't really have big savoury salads anymore like I used to either, all I want is fruit. So in order to get my greens in I've started adding lettuce, celery or spinach to my evening fruit salads. I never even realised how much better lettuce makes fruit salads taste! It gives it a great crunch and a nice nuetral contrast to the sweetness of the fruit. Haha yes bananas are so perfect, everything from their taste to their packaging, form, texture, calorie content and low cost. Do you have access to fresh dates? The dates that I sometimes buy here are labelled "fresh" on the box but it's obvious that they have been sundried a bit, otherwise they wouldn't have such a long shelf life.

this is such a great post, thank you for sharing! I'm going with how I feel for the most part and I just found today too, that after eating fruit all day, my meal of raw salad topped with rice just really didn't do it for me. but I keep thinking about expense and ease of travel too. bananas! and I love bananas. and dates :)

I sometimes make banana 'porridge' too only I mash them with a fork instead. Freezing them and blending into icecream tastes great too!

For me the banana taste improves when I don't really make a smoothie but pulse the bananas on high and make them into a "porridge" adding a raspberry sauce and a handful of chopped celery if I wish.

Otherwise the banana porridge tastes just fine by itself w/out any sauce and I eat it with the spoon.

I like it because it resembles real breakfast like a cereal and I take my time eating it.

By the way bananas prepared like this don't turn greyish or brownish, they keep their nice creamy color and taste delicious.Enjoy!

I'm currently sick of bananas, but only because I just finished my second 4 large banana+water smoothie this morning, putting me at a total of 968 calories so far.  This is the most calories I've made myself eat in the morning so far, and I definitely feel it stretching my stomach, but it sure was tasty.  Now that I finished it, I couldn't imagine eating another banana right now.  But I know a few hours from now I'll be able to stomach more.  

Here's to healthy cravings! :)

Thanks! I do something get sick of the taste of bananas, especially if they're very ripe. But I find a few days banana free is enough to make me like and want them again.

That's great news!! :) I just started getting into bananas last week and have eaten about 90 since.  Today I've had four so far in a small smoothie, and I'm about to eat four more.  I haven't craved bananas yet, so to speak, but I think I'm starting to get there myself.  Every time I eat a banana or take a sip of these simple banana+water smoothies now, the taste tastes at least TEN times better than bananas have ever previously tasted to me.  I'm sure the cravings aren't far off, but I'm just happy the taste is the best part!  Thanks for posting this, and keep up the good fruit! :)
