Today my 7 days of raw begins!
I will eat 100% vegan rawfood for a week.
I have never been 100% raw before but now I want to try this and see if it makes me gain more energy. I have been feeling sick and tired for a while and a bit low on energy so I want to give myself the best possible nutrition and also learn more about rawfood for my daughter sake, for the earth and for the retreat in October when we will eat raw together for a week.
If this feels good I might continue for more than 7 days.
Join me if you like ✨🙌🏽✨
We woke up late this morning so I just had watermelon for breakfast, I am usually not hungry in the mornings so I eat more during the day.
I walked by Beverlys vegan & raw place on our way back from the parc so today's lunch was easy!! And AMAZING ✨
.... I have been feeling a bit strange about this today. Somehow it felt like I am doing some kind of loosing weight diet when I think about everything I eat. And it reminded me about when I was younger and everyone in my familly was always talking about loosing weight and different diets. It made me feel weird and hurt about it all so I just had to remind myself that this is not a diet! I love my body! And my fat ❤🙏🏽 I am breastfeeding my baby so loosing weight is not what this is about. It is about giving myself the best possible healthy food to support my body to heal.
I had to make this clear to myself and anyone reading that this is only for health and healing.
I will not write every single thing I eat but I share the things I think can be inspiring to whoever would like to try it too 💓
I made a wonderful nicecream with a new ingredient I have not tried before, white beans!!
It was super good but a bit too sweet I had to much bananas in it.
I used 1 big avocado, 2 bananas (think 1 would have been better), 1 dl white beans, a few cherries and seeds.
For dinner I wanted something a bit warm so a made a soup with coconut, broccoli, red pepper, turmeric, lentils, spenage some herbs and seeds! This soup was so good I think I will make some more tomorrow.
I woke up this morning and for the first time for a long time I did not feel tired in the morning! I was chocked, is it already this big change? Is it working already? 😮
Even when Sana fell asleep during the siesta today when I also usually take a rest I had so much energy so I made food instead of resting. And it was so nice to have a lot of time in the kitchen.
I have made a soup again similar to the one yesterday but I added pees and more lentils.
Then I made a wonderful zucchini salad! So far my favorite rawfood meal, and it is so easy to make it:
And a "pesto cream" made of mixed zucchini, tomatoes, walnuts, lemon, garlic and apple vinagre.
Sorry about this picture, it does not look so yummie but IT IS!! 😄
I have been shopping at Veritas today, where everything is organic and a lot of locally grown vegetables and fruits. I love this shop!
Today was too intense. I could hardly find time to eat at all and it was soo tempting to just grab something quick in a restaurant. There was no rawfood place around so I just had to wait.
So far I feel so good! My stomach is so relaxed and I feel closer to every sensation in my body.
I ended up eating just a lot of fruit and vegetables during the day and then I made a huge meal in the evening. Not how I want it to be but some days there is not enough time.
I realize that rawfood really needs time and thought, the nuts and seeds need to soak for a long time and I am not used to spend all this time in the kitchen. But there are also some raw "fastfood" suitable for families with toddlers.
This was my dinner:
3 different hummus in a salad wrap, with avocado, pickled red cabbage, carrots, onions, and a sweet pineapple and walnut dressing.
Raw snack on the go!
Today everything has been great, I really Love to eat rawfood!
I feel so in touch with my body and emotions and so much more clarity and calm. I have not craved any other foods during this week at all.
I have no pain at all in my stomach like I used to have when I got stressed before.
I am surprised how easy this is. The only thing tempting me sometimes is to have something quick and ready made because I do not always have the time to prepare all the food I would like to.
If I had more time I would love to continue this for much more than a week. Hopefully I will be able to eat at least 50% rawfood.
I can not believe it is already day 5! Wow.
I am still feeling amazing! So much more energy and I feel emotionally much more calm and stable.
Tomorrow I will see a rawfood chef in my home and we will make food together! I will go shopping all the ingredients in the morning and after siesta we will make a lorn of food!! Wowhi.
In the evening we were in Puerto Andraxt and I had no idea they had a rawfood place!! I had already eaten at home unfortunately 😂 So I did not eat there but I have to go back when I am hungry. I just had a smoothie.
Today I had a rawfood chef friend over and we made amazing raw and vegan food. (Well she did, I only helped) 😄 And I ate sooo much my stomach hurt.
I actually got a bit sad that this week is over so soon. I want to continue raw but I know it will be difficult to keep this 100% focus. Especially in social situations when I hang out with people and go out eat in restaurants. But if I can stay at least 80% raw that would be wonderful!
I had no idea I could feel this good with rawfood. It actually blew my mind and I am a bit sad I did not know how good this is for me earlier. It would have saved me so much pain!
For you who do not know I have struggled with pain in my stomach and infections in my system for a big part of my life and different food allergies. And no doctor has been able to help me with that. Only thing that worked for me was learning how to eat antiinflamatory food. But during breastfeeding and being very much alone with Sana the time for making good food disappeared and I have been a little more focused on what is easy to make instead of what is good.
Last day! I am amazed how easy and quick this week went by.
I have never felt this good in my body! I did feel a few symptoms of detox but I slowed it down because I am breastfeeding. Had a lot of nuts and vegetables during the days as snacks.
I am looking forward for the rawfood and vegan retreat so much now! To share and enjoy the benefits of this healing food 💞
I made a wonderful soup today. And it is so easy to just mix whatever you like into a creme and slowly warm it up to about 35-40 degrees. I usually have coconut cream and hummus as a base and then add vegetables and herbs.
Thank you for reading
