Just dipping my toes in the water, here! I read the whole original thread and got interested, like many others. I'm not going to be a 100% -- or even 80% -- raw foodist anytime soon, but I'm definitely interested in increasing my raw intake. I like to read what those who eat mainly raw have in a day, but I also like to hear from everyone who is, like me, simply aiming to do more raw.



Right now I'm going for raw breakfasts. I've never been a "fruit person," but I went out and bought a bunch, and I'm actually really liking it. I've had a raw fruit breakfast every day this week.



Today:



nectarine

plum

2 slices watermelon

fresh-sqeezed orange juice



I know that's not a lot cal-wise, but since I tend to skip breakfast altogether it is an improvement!



OK ... look forward to y'alls participation.

This looks like a good thread. Like you mentioned, I am not intrested in 100% raw, but would really like to increase my raw intake.



For example, today I had:



Large salad with lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots

apple

banana



As you can see I need work! Maybe this thread can help motivate me!

I had an apple, three clementines, 2 cups of baby carrots (mmmm!), and I'm going to have a fruit salad in a few minutes. Are soy nuts raw?

I have such a hard time eating raw food when it's soooo freakin' cold outside.

I've had a big ol' carrot so far.

Hm! I just asked myself, what *did* I eat raw today? I had a tub of guacamole! Which is raw, though not intentional.

I went to the vegan buffet on campus for dinner tonight. They were serving raw spaghetti. I think it was mostly made from courgette, and then there were tomatoes and salad and other stuff...it was really yummy!

Breakfast was an apple and a banana -- with peanut butter. (Those of you who know me as a former peanut-butter-hater will be surprised, lol.)



... and later, a large salad with with lettuce, tomato, cukes and red onions (again).

Breakfast: an avocado and a quarter of a cucumber (I had my savory tooth acting up this morning, lol).



And later a really big salad (with the usual ingredients, see above).

A banana and a plum for morning tea. I'll have another banana and some grapes for lunch. That's probably all for today.

I eat an apple and another piece of fruit every day. A couple times a week I'll eat raw veggies like 'maters, cukes, or peppers.

Yesterday I had an apple at breakfast (only fruit left in the house, I ate the rest already!). Then, for lunch and dinner and snacks in between, I had my new Vegenaise salad which is half raw: cucumbers, broccoli, carrots, tomato, avocado, red pepper. Cooked potato, garbanzos, and corn in it too.

Yeah. My RAW life went out the window with the first snowfall. All I wanted to eat after that was PASTA and RICE and SOUP lotsa SOUP!



I'm trying to be good now. Stocked up on organic red leaf lettuce, fruits and vegetables.

its not what ive eaten today...but im got a long-haul flight next week and didnt fancy the idea of a stodgy vegan meal (as ive experienced on flights in the past) so ive gone with the 'raw fruit and vegetables' option they had.

Will turn out to be either a really good decision or a terrible one. Will let you know.
