I've always been really curious about the whole 'raw food' thing. It's not that I don't get my own fair share of uncooked veggies and fruit and such, but the idea of going 100% raw seems really cool to me, not to mention the supposed health benefits. I'm not planning to go all-raw, but incorporating more raw food into my diet can only be a good thing!
So yeah. I decided that today would be a raw food day. :) Here's how I did it:
Breakfast: Biiiig ol' fruit salad (banana, mango, apple, grapes...) with a generous sprinkling of ground flax
Lunch: A really lazy bento box of chopped veggies (and some apple, hehe)
Snack: Mango and raspberries and some banana and some almonds
Dinner: A BIG salad, plus some banana with almond butter
Snack: hasn't happened yet... but probably some almonds :)
More than anything, I noticed that I developed an unusually extreme craving for fruit. I guess I felt great eating raw.. I was a bit tired but that's most likely from sleep deprivation as I've been super busy lately.
I'll definitely try a raw day again, though, no doubt about it. And I'll totally prepare, too, by sprouting some lentils & wheat berries. mmm! I'm thinking that I might try this once or twice a month, but probably a bit more often than that when it's summertime again :)
