Yesterday, on Day 13 of the Raw Food Challenge, I ate:
– Bowl of fruit topped with ice cream! Inspired by Liz’s idea: I took 1/2 banana, 1/2 apple, and 1/3 pear and chopped them into chunks. I tossed them in a bowl with some frozen blueberries, and then mixed in some of the chocolate ice cream leftover from a couple days ago (avocado/dates/raisins/banana/cacao powder/cinnamon mixture). It was delicious!
– Handful of beet and potato chips, plus 3 apricots
– 1/2 apple with banana cashew butter (I made this by whirring 1/2 banana with a spoonful of nut butter in the food processor), and 3 apricots dipped in cashew butter, plus 1 1/2 glasses of lemon water with 1/2 scoop calcium/magnesium powder
– 1 mushroom with guacamole, 1 mushroom with hummus, a couple more apricots, another piece of banana, a piece of chickpea flatbread, and handful corn chips
– 2 cookies with cashew butter, plus a small piece of frozen banana with cashew butter (I went a little nut butter crazy today :D)
– A pile of mini mandarins, 3 carrots, and a mug of green tea with 1/2 scoop calcium powder
– A taste of leftover zucchini pasta, 1 apple with cinnamon and 2 mugs green tea with 1/2 scoop calcium/magnesium powder
I couldn’t get satisfied today. I ate a ton but none of it was what I wanted. I was inwardly fairly grouchy and sluggish for much of the day, even though I had about nine hours of sleep the night before. And I’ve grown to detest zucchini pasta. I was supposed to eat it for dinner but it was so unappetizing that I stuck with the apple instead (besides, I’d already had so much that it really wasn’t necessary to have a big bowl of zucchini pasta, anyways).
I’ve been having massive cravings for a burger or a glass of milk, of all things! My body doesn’t do so well when it gets low protein and high fat. I run very well off of a high carb eating style, but not with high fats (which has been happening since my ridiculously high consumption of nuts) and certainly not with low proteins. Halfway through the challenge! February 1st can’t come soon enough…
