Raw Challenge Days

Yesterday, I had a nasty headache and really didn’t eat much. I made a green smoothie and had some little snacks but wasn’t feeling like eating. I think it was just a detox headache that you get sometimes from eating raw or just cleaner in general. Eating more wasn’t helping so I just took it easy.

Today, (day 7) started out better but the headache reappeared. Hopefully I’ll be back to normal tomorrow and I will do a better job taking pics of my eats. I did snap a pic of my awesome organic CSA basket. I just ordered the small box to try it out. It has 12 jalapenos, 2 small green bell peppers, 1 head of lettuce, 1 pint cherry tomatoes, figs, 3 potatoes, 1 head of broccoli, 3 large tomatoes, a bouquet of mixed herbs, 4 carrots, 4 pears, and 1 bunch of grapes. Pretty awesome amount for the small box. Going to have fun making use of all this produce.

Breakfast was a banana with vanilla almond butter. No, the vanilla almond butter is not raw but it is sooo good!
Lunch was my usual green smoothie of mixed greens, banana, frozen mango, almond milk, & chia seeds.
Dinner was the exciting part. I made 2 recipes by Ani Phyo, Raw Tomato Chili and Raw Taco Nut Meat. You should make these, seriously, go make them. Yes, now.
Loved these both so much and they came together pretty easy. I did add a little more Bragg’s to the raw taco nut meat but after that, it was great.
Here’s mine with the raw taco nut meat on top. So happy I have more in my fridge. Will definitely be making this again!
Snacks were a couple pluots and some cherry tomatoes with hummus. I haven’t had a pluot in a long time, forgot how good they are.
Feeling pretty great after today! Really wish I had some more of those pluots, I will buy more next time I go to Whole Foods.
