It’s been a while since I’ve shared my eats, and this happens is the first week of my 21-Day Fully Raw Challenge that I’m participating in through Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, Fully Raw YouTube channel. The first day was really a challenge, I can’t tell you how many cravings I had for non-raw food throughout the day. I eat this way several times during the year for about a month or so, because it helps to cleanse the body, and it really makes me think about what I’m eating during the day, and the amount of processed food I’m consuming.
My day started with lemon water.
Before leaving for work, a Green Smoothie.
I eat from this spread of fruit, grapefruit, oranges, grapes, blackberries and bananas from mid morning to early afternoon.
Later in the afternoon, I had Persian cucumbers with Trader Joe’s Corn and Chile Tomato-Less Salsa. Yes, it’s processed, but it has no artificial colors or flavors and no preservatives.
Dinner was a big salad and yes, I added in some more Corn and Chile Salsa, this stuff is gooood!
To satisfy my sweet tooth I put together an apple parfait. This was a modified recipe from Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram’s YouTube channel. Layers of dried figs and date paste, I simply processed them together in a food processor, coconut butter I made using raw coconut flakes, (just process in food processor for about 10 minutes), apple slices, and I topped if off with apple date sauce and fig-date paste. So yum, yum, yummy.
I have 19 more days to go with my challenge.
Have a Great What I Ate Wednesday and head on over to Peas and Crayons for more WIAW.
