Good evening everyone!
Today I started my High-Raw Detox!
There are so many various "detox" plans out there that I just decided to create my own based on what I've been in the mood for lately- lots of fresh fruit and veggies! I have been indulging in too many delicious things lately and paying a price for it! I've been breaking out a little and haven't had a ton of energy.
So, I decided to go high-raw for a week...
My self-imposed "rules" include eating as much of the following foods as I want every day:
Raw veggies (may also end up steaming a few)
Nuts (some are roasted, because that's what I have!)
Herbs and Spices
"Extras" like nutritional yeast, olive oil, coconut oil, agave nectar, chia seeds, apple cider vinegar, etc
This morning I woke up at 9am and made a big smoothie:
this had a 1/2 pound of strawberries and a banana- thick and yummy!
3 hours later I had some veggies and peanuts at work:
This was: 2 carrots, 1 celery stalk, and 1/4 cup peanutsAround 2:30 I made a bowl of raw pasta:
This was one spiralized zucchini topped with a raw tomato sauce and nutritional yeast.
For the raw sauce, I blended 1/2 a huge tomato, 1 stalk of celery, some olive oil, apple cider vinegar, a squirt of agave nectar, and some chili powder and salt to taste. Super good!I was in the mood for something sweet later and made chocolate covered strawberries!
Raw Vegan Coconut Oil Chocolate (modified to skip the vanilla and use equal proportions of all of the other ingredients) and dunked my strawberries into it, then refrigerated!
Around 7:30pm I had 2 bowls of vegetarian baked beans:
Today was a success! I didn't feel hungry or like I was "missing" anything at any point. Hope that trend continues. I have some yummy raw recipes for you tomorrow as well.
Have you ever gone raw (or semi-raw) for any period of time? Do you think you could?
