My name is Allie and I am going to switch over to eating a raw diet. I’m blogging this journey in an attempt to help myself achieve that goal. Right now, I have successfully, completely cut out red meat. I have nearly cut out processed foods, cheese, milk, and soy. I feel as if my healthful eating habits have slowly been improving and leading me to the raw diet. I have heard the testimonials of improved health and age reversal and I want me some of that. 😉
I’m going to call this Day 1 even though I went grocery shopping for raw foods days ago. I mean, I ate ten (yes, ten) cookies tonight. So I’ll say today (when I wake up in the morning) is Day 1. I’m being drawn to cookies and other cooked, fatty foods because I have not paid enough attention to my diet. I’m used to just eating on the go, grabbing a granola bar. This diet is going to need a bit more planning, at least in the beginning. So what do I have to work with?
- raw coconut butter
- raw almond butter
- 1 avocado
- dried apricots
- red bell peppers
- dried coconut strips
- kelp noodles
- raw cacao powder
- agave syrup
- raw oat groats
- 1 zucchini
I am very set up for smoothies and granola bars. I do, however, need raw nuts and raw nut milk for many of the recipes I’d like to try. For now, however I’ll set out my short-term, 1 week goals.
- Eat a satisfying, healthy raw breakfast every day.
- Use up all the fruits and veggies I have bought.
- Use a variety of different recipes.
- Eat a non-raw meal at dinnertime if I feel myself craving it.
That’s all for now.
