WIAW-21Day Fully Raw Challenge

6 Comments

Happy Wednesday!

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.

Jump Start Breakfast

I eat from this spread of fruit, grapefruit, oranges, grapes, blackberries and bananas from mid morning to early afternoon.

Fruity-Lunch

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!

Salad

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.

Hi, I'm Celeste 'm a no flesh eating vegetarian who loves to run, cook and eat good wholesome food, living a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. In 2011 I became a vegetarian because I was experiencing digestive problems it seemed after every meal and I just didn't feel good. After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr I was convinced that eliminating all meat from my diet and adding more real foods was worth a try. Kris's book taught me so much about the power of whole fresh fruits and veggies, and their impact on our bodies. After a few months I started to feel the difference and I have never turned back. My hope is to share something that helps you on your journey to being Whole Body Healthy! Follow me on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
