Day 7

I don't know about where you live, but here in Chicago land, it's cold (50s and 60s!!) and rainy...needless to say, my energy levels were no where near optimal today.

Andrew and I shared a watermelon for breakfast, but neither one of us could finish our half!

I stayed completely full until noon (I ate breakfast at 6:30!), and was still not really hungry, but I knew I needed to eat something, so I basically snacked the rest of the afternoon and didn't have any real meals.

Here's a rundown of what I ate:

  • bananas
  • apples
  • pecans (I didn't eat enough fruit today, so I had a few too many fats...)
  • a cucumber with agave mustard dip
  • some cereal (yes, it was cooked.  I got a taste for cooked food because I did not stay full enough on raw foods.  I will get it tomorrow!)
  • and some raw chocolate

Sugar cravings kicked in this evening before going to lift due to the lack of fruit in my diet today.  Again, the good thing is that I am aware of what I am doing rite and wrong, so I am able to make corrections and modifications when necessary.  The key to lifestyle changes is taking small steps, making modifications to suit you, and remember why you are making this lifestyle change in the first place.

My reason for doing this challenge/lifestyle change:  I felt so full of life and happiness while on the raw vegan cleanse I did a few weeks ago and felt weighed down and heavy as soon as I ate cooked vegetarian foods again.  After doing research about a low fat raw vegan lifestyle, I feel that it can really be helpful in living my best, most healthy long life!

Luana ola!
