Last night, knowing it was my last day of processed/cooked foods for about 3 months, I had some snacks...pretzels and chocolate chips! Needless to say, this morning I woke up groggy and exhausted...
But, after a huge glass of cool water, my body perked up a bit and I sat down for breakfast. Since I have not bought loads of produce yet, breakfast consisted of an array of fruits.
Breakfast: 1/2 of a honeydew melon, an apricot, and a banana.
From other raw foodists, I have learned to track everything on Cron-o-Meter to make sure I'm getting all of my necessities including vitamins, minerals, macro-nutrients, and calories. This breakfast was about 350 calories (I need to consume between 1600 and 2000)! Not much, considering how much I felt like I ate...well, this just means I get to eat more for munch, dinner, and snacks! This is pretty much why I love this lifestyle already...I love to eat!
Lunch: 3 c of tomato and cucumber mixture, a pear, and 2 handfuls of baby carrots
I ate this sporadically from 11 am - 2pm. I am still getting used to this lifestyle (it's the first day) and I know that I have to eat A LOT, but I did not realize how much! I have been eating to fullness each meal, but it goes away in an hour! For this reason, I got really hungry at 3pm, so I had a handful of almonds to tide me over.
Dinner: home made raw chocolate, sauerkraut, mixed berries
The reason dinner was so sporadic was because of timing. It was 7pm when I got back from softball and did not feel like making a salad.
Snacks: a whole bunch of raw almonds
Exercise: 1 hour of Vinyasa yoga and a short softball game.
I noticed that I really need to eat more fruit during the day. My calories were so low that I pigged out on nuts and chocolate later at night because I was so hungry! Tomorrow, I will be going to the store to pick up fresh produce for next week!
