What do you usually eat in a day?

Started by tat. Last reply by Zach Mac Isaac Nov 5, 2012. 20 Replies

I confess that I've become really bored of cooking and find myself constantly making the same dishes over and over again. I'd love some new ideas of what you all tend to eat in a given day? Whether…Continue

Alternative Sources of Protein For Vegetarians (NOT TOFU OR TEMPEH)

So I feel tofu and the equivalents are not for me.  I know this time I need to get my nutritional balance right as before when I was vegetarian I had a few health things mainly lacking in B12 and I…Continue

hi Candi, can you post your favourite green drink recipe/s? I love the sound of Kate's wraps. Before I start my 'all raw' on 15th Feb, I thought I could try to have a raw element in every meal. Then gradually increase the raw and decrease the cooked.

But I'm getting quite excited now about eating raw! And I was thinking of getting a stash of 'raw supplies' today! All I had raw was a banana, some orange and a salad yesterday. But I felt so good (and virtuous!) eating them. It felt good to eat the raw stuff joyfully. Maybe this will be easier than I thought? Well, we shall see :-)

Thanks Candi and Kate! It's lovely to get all this inspiration!

Yesterday I had the urge to go and buy a lovely colourful array of fruits and apart from toast in the morning (and some bombay mix!) I had a completely raw day yesterday, which surprised and pleased me. Still had goats milk in my tea though - oops, just remembered that.

So far today I've had some soaked oats (not strictly raw but I didn't cook them!) and seeds with strawberries, blueberries, and apple (including pips which i've heard are very good for you). I feel great!

I like the idea of taking it slow and steady if I want to, but oddly, I'm eager to get on and do this - so roll on 15th Feb - if I'm not all raw before that :-)

(A Vitamix is definitely on my wishlist!)

Well Candi, I do remember when I first tried fresh juices and I loved the apple, lemon and celery (yum!) combination. I will try your recipe! Thanks for that.

Not a great start ... forgot I had fruit in the fridge and made toast. Only realised when I went to get the butter out. Will have a salad for lunch though. Got the organic veg box delivery yesterday so plenty of choice.. lovely!

This restaurant site has some inspiring food pics and sample menu (hope the link works - not sure I've pasted it right)

Tomorrow I will try my 1st raw food day. Breakfast and lunch are the goals and if all is going well, dinner too.
Am actually a bit excited to give it a go and see how it flows.
lol...who would have EVER thought eating raw food would make me have such a cheesy grin on my face...heheheheheee...
Anticipation is such a wonderful feeling :D

I haven't even tried to eat more fruits and vegetables. I think I've been eating all that I love before Feb. 15th : ) That's right Kate. We'll all need to support each other.
Comment by Theresa Laura Morgan on January 27, 2010 at 12:55pm
YumYum Kate!
Comment by Theresa Laura Morgan on January 27, 2010 at 1:04pm
I will have to start trying different vegetables before Feb. 15th. I think that will be the biggest challenge for me. Fruits are no problem. I pretty much like all types of fruits.
