Question Raw food meal plans?

I'd like to start having some fully raw days throughout my week. Can anyone give me an idea of what you eat in a day? I don't want to just eat salads every day.

Salads are a good start.

Are you looking to not cook anything at all?
On my raw only days, I like to make up a few different kinds of hummus, (I know this requires cooking some beans), you could make Guac if you don't want to do hummus.

Then I just slice up veggies and dip them in what I make and graze all day long.

You can do a sprouted chickpea hummus - that's all raw--

I love hummus, but I'd like to stay fully raw. Guac is a great idea! I'll definitely do that. I guess I will do some smoothies with avocado also to help keep me fuller longer.

Here are some recipes: http://rawfoodrecipes.com/meal/dinner/


The nutritional structure of raw vegan diets is different than that of mixed cooked/raw vegan diets. You might find it useful to check out this book from the library: https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Raw-.../dp/1570672385 . It is authored by two vegan Registered Dietitians. If your library doesn't have it, they can get for you - just ask them to do an "interlibrary loan".

You can also mono meal, which means to pick a fruit and eat several (until full) for lunch. I'm still learning the ins and outs of this, but I wouldn't mind making a meal of mango, for example! Quick, easy, simple, on-the-go.
Lunch of mangos? At one gram protein, 2% protein, 1% iron, you'd have a lot of making up to do!

Hi and welcome. Here are some fancy raw meals for when you have time and are craving deliciousness.

http://m.huffpost.com/ca/entry/8583428/slideshow/464470

And here is one with 21 raw recipes, one a day for 3 weeks. http://www.fullyraw.com/the-21-day-meal-plan/

Make sure you are getting enough food--calories, quantity, etc. It is not an inexpensive diet, raw vegan.

Here's a video I found on monomealing:

Just make sure you research whichever eating plan you choose. Raw is expensive, and you pretty much need a car to transport your fruit home, or produce delivery to your home. It is difficult to eat enough and enough variety on a raw diet.

I hate to see people give up on veganism because eating only raw foods is extrememly difficult to sustain, especially in cold climates in the winter.

All of what you said, is exactly why I quit checking out the 100% Raw Foods only diet. On top of that, I kept finding only recipes that are "snackish" instead of "dinnerish".

However, I have figured out a better "dinnerish" meal outside of salads. I found the Courgette (Zucchini) noodles are really good with an Indian-Italian mix, Rawspaghetti sauce. I love the flavour when I combine traditional Indian spices with Marjoram, Cilantro, Sweet Basil and Rosemary.

The place closed, unfortunately. I did not realize that! We had a Raw Vegan restarant that was to die for! Ecopolitan. There dishes are very inspired looking and look like fancy foods for fancy people. If I didn't have the food allergies I do have, I would eat there. I only managed to eat their twice and do okay.

I add in some pictures from their website that is still up. and because recipe ideas were asked for, I hope these images inspire you. Sorry, but I can not tell you what is in these recipes. I can only see what the ingredients they might have.

You can also try out Veggie Vibes

They do all vegan and mostly raw food meal prep and deliver to your home,
you can choose a 3 day or 7 day option so if you were looking to do 3 days raw in a week
then that would be perfect for you

Best of luck!
