I might try it as well, I take Floradix at the moment.

I made some of the raw hummus from Ani Phyo's Raw Food Kitchen, I made some plain and some with sun dried tomatoes, yum!

I've made raw hummus on a couple of occasions - once with zucchini and once with sprouted chickpeas; didn't really like either. How does Ani Phyo make hers?

^ It's made with zucchini, no beans of any kind. I had it before I ate beans. I thought it was eh.

Hmm, can't say I'm big on raw hummus, personally! Although one recipe I made recently - mock rice pilaf - required the grated zucchini to be sprinkled with salt and left for 5 mins before squeezing out the liquid - perhaps it would make the hummus a bit more digestible?

Ok - on with today :)

B: Brioche*, 2 espresso*

L: Marinated chard with raisins, carrots with parsley and walnuts - both were extremely good :)

D: Tofu sausages*, marinated chard :D, apple, 2 peaches, 4 plums.

B: Brioche* (vegan but not raw), espresso*

L: Sundried tomato tofu dip* wrapped in lettuce leaves. Mango, 2 peaches.

I'm making sunflower seed pate which I'll have for dinner with a big salad :)

Yum! So much of the stuff people are eating on here sounds delicious! I'm trying to go as raw as possible and work my way up to the thirty day challenge (at least), so it's great to see threads like these which give me some ideas!

...Raw food is awesome, because I am so lazy...so far today I've been all Raw, and have had:

A pear for breakfast, then a piece of melon, a bowl of strawberries, and a banana for lunch.

I'm thinking about attempting to make a green smoothie soon...but I'm rather scared...they look a bit icky, but oh so healthy, and sound kinda yummy when described!

Today I have eaten an entire fresh pineapple, a tomato, spring onion and spinach salad and a berry Nak'd bar. (I have eaten lots of non-raw food too!)

They aren't too bad at all, I use spinach in mine.:) I found with romaine lettuce I could taste it too much.:amazed_ani: The people on here say that bananas make the green smoothies sweet and nice.

Thanks, BlackCats! The spinach option souds good! Methinks I'll have to pick some up next time I shop...maybe I can put spinach with banana, and something else :s Hmmm, this could take some thinking :p

Hi FatPassionFishPoet,

I use baby spinach in my green smoothies because it doesn't have too strong a flavour. I use about 400-500ml water, a large handful of baby spinach (or two handfuls) and combine that with 2-4 ripe bananas. It tastes just like a banana smoothie. Yesterday I added 5 strawberries and today I added strawberries and a kiwi fruit.

Don't let the green colour put you off, green smoothies are delish! :D


^ It's made with zucchini, no beans of any kind. I had it before I ate beans. I thought it was eh.

Yup, it was with zucchini and it wasn't as nice as chickpea/beans but it was still good. I have been making non-raw dips with white beans lately but I want to make some raw dips and raw crackers.

Breakfast: Green smoothie with various fruits and cabbage cos that's all I've got - it was tolerable.

Lunch: 2 apples, 2 pears, banana, orange.

Dinner: bulgar wheat soaked for eternity, cauliflower florets (those ones that look like broccoli), chopped brazil nuts, newly sprouted watercress, a sauce of walnut oil, balsamic vinegar and raw tahini. Very nice.

New veg box arrives tomorrow so not much more cabbage to suffer.

i'm just going to get my breakfast of banana, blueberries and mango. i think i'll just peel the mango and bite the flesh off round the pip - very messy but very satisfying!

That sounds lovely Cedarblue! :)

I love having a breakfast of just fruit and have just had a dish of grapes, raspberries, blueberries and pineapple.
I've never tried mango before so am going shopping for some today to give them a try! :)

I'm getting really into this raw eating thing. I am only doing it slowly though and trying to build up to more raw, less cooked food. :)

p.s. I've sent you a pm Cedarblue about the mango I bought! ;) :)

hi everyone!
i'm slowly adopting a raw diet/lifestyle as the opportunities present themselves. for now this means one well thought out (near) raw meal per day.
this was my breakfast/lunch:
coffee*
bell pepper soup
1/2 pita* stuffed with banana-sprouted chickpea-pepper hummus
*not raw
it doesn't sound like much, but it's actually rather filling and it took a while to eat.
ideally my eventual goal would be to maintain a well rounded 60% raw diet.

hello erictho!

it doesn't matter how small or slow you start, to me every bit of raw added to the diet is a good change! i don't like to set % any more as i feel defeated if i don't manage it, i prefer to look at what i've eaten on a daily basis and do my best.

luckily when the sun is out here, i feel more inclined to eat more salads, veg and fruit.

Eek Mr Flibble!
We had a green smoothie for breakfast consisting of wild sea kale we picked from the beach and fruit. It was really nice.

Lunch - some olive pate and crudites with some fruit.

Dinner - Courgette strip 'pasta' and rich tomato sauce which was incredibly moreish.
