As there is very few threads on raw food I thought I would start one. I strive for eating about 90-95% raw food with the rest being clean eating.

Today was not a typical day for me because I had my parents over for a bit of a Christmas celebration.

1 potato
Curly kale
4 pieces of salmon
3 small pieces of herring
5 homemade meatballs
1/2 egg

Iceberg lettuce
Green peas
Cherry tomatoes

2 dates
5 pieces of dried ananas

1 cup wild berries thé
1 cup peppermint thé
Greens: 5
Fruit: 2

Enough water? yes, yes

I've not been eating a lot of fruit but that will change tomorrow! I'm thinking of tracking superfoods because I need to make an effort to get those in.

Whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce

Sallad made with green peas, alfalfa sprouts, broccoli and a ton of wakame (I read on Wikipedia that studies show the fucoxanthin in the the wakame help to burn fatty tissue, especially around the internal organs. Not a favorite of mine but I can eat it now and then). An Italian ressing made with flax seed oil

2 pears

2 dried ananas pieces

A handfull of home made apple chips with cinnamon

I would love to join! I am going to be buying a vita mix blender, juicer and a deyhdrator so I should be all set. I have toyed with the idea of raw food for a few years and I think I am ready to make the leap. I am going to ease into it with a beginning goal of 50% raw with a goal of getting to 100%.

This is what I have eaten so far today:


Large Green Drink (flax seed, water, raw honey, bananas, spinach)


2 apples, carrots

Anyone still trying for mostly raw? I've been going for a week and a half now and find that it's getting a little hard. I ended up eating 4 little onion rings tonight and hate that I did that. I'm totally wanting some junk food! I'm wondering if I let myself have something "junky" maybe once a month, if it will help or if it will do more damage.

With my daily eating, my hardest thing is salad dressing. I love big salads for dinner but I don't like any raw dressings I've tried. So I've been sticking with a store bought dressing that is low cal and fat. I think it's the only thing that's helping me to get more greens in so hopefully it doesn't hurt my weightloss much.

A typical day for me includes

glutenfree oatmeal with dried fruits and nuts

a protein shake

one or two large green smoothies (1 cup water, one banana, 2-3 cups other sweet fruit, fill up the blender with spinach and/or chards or kale)

a big salad with mixed greens, half an avocado, 1-2 tomatos, some cucumber, olives, mushrooms, sprouts, 2 tbs dressing and sometimes a small can tuna

some type of dinner if still hungry - usually something fancier and often cooked - vegan glutenfree lasagne, V GF creamy mushroom pasta, rice/quinoa with steamed veggies, some fancy raw dish from a recipe book. But not every night. Depends on how I feel :)
