Day 19 of the Raw Food Challenge

Yesterday, on Day 18 of the Raw Food Challenge, I ate:

– 1/2 banana with cashew butter plus some pineapple, and 1 digestive enzyme capsule followed by a glass of lemon water with 1/2 scoop calcium/magnesium powder

– 1 apple with cinnamon and 1 mug green tea

– 1 carrot chopped into sticks, plus some lentil sprouts and 1 mug green tea

– 5 romaine lettuce wraps filled with lentil sprouts, clover sprouts, red pepper strips, cucumber slices, and chunks of tomato

– 1 apple with cinnamon and 1 mug green tea

– 2 mini mandarin oranges and 1 mug green tea

– Mounds of apricots with a few cashews, plus 1 banana with a chocolate brownie

– Pineapple, chickpea flatbread, and 1 carrot

– Lemon water and regular water

I was THIS CLOSE to breaking down and sneaking some of the roommate’s butter chicken that was in the fridge. I could smell it cooking for the past two days. He has no heart. Hehe. But I’m still going strong! Less than two weeks left for the raw food challenge and then it will be popcorn and oatmeal and eggs on toast for this chica.


Quality nutrition alone doesn’t quite cut it; we need to incorporate fitness into our lifestyles, too. If you’re looking for ways to integrate fitness into your day, to relieve pain, or to strengthen those abs (my favourite kind of exercise!), check out these training tips from Fitness Magazine or take a peek at their celebrity workout routines. These tips and routines could be a big help! (Psst… they also have some workout playlists to keep you going just when you feel your energy draining).

    Your roommate=cruel. You=strong. 🙂

    Your post makes me think that going through a challenge such as this would definitely point out those foods that are most important to you. Heck, that applies to me, too, now that I think about it. The “foods I left behind” (and thank you for supplying that topic for me to blog about *G*) are mostly not missed. Those that are missed are almost always incorporated, even though they’re somewhat moderated now.

    Tracey- I am ALL about the tea. Love it. I need to re-stock my supply of white tea though; that’s my favourite!

    Cammy- Agreed, we can learn something from what foods we adore, WHY we adore them, and how we can incorporate them into a healthy lifestyle. I’m so happy I have my walnuts/dates/cacao powder chocolate brownie concoction for my chocolate fix during this challenge 🙂
