I purposely did not include nuts, because, erm, I'm afraid of them. I once had an allergic reaction to a brazil nut, and now I run in fear from all nuts.<br><br><br><br>
If one day I get extra hungry, I'll include some dried fruit. I especially love medjool dates. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> But they can't be an everyday food for me, as they are so expensive. 8 dollars for a little container of them at my local grocery store that lasts for only a max of three days! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> crazy.<br><br><br><br>
I want to try a raw-food lifestyle (NOT diet), because I feel sooo much better when I don't eat cooked foods. I have more energy, and I feel like my spirit/soul and mood has been "lifted". I know that sounds crazy, but it is the truth! But I want to do it properly and healthily. I also want to get my parents eating this way, as my 64 year old dad is a omni diabetic who eats MCDONALDS EVERY SINGLE DAY, and my 49 year old mom is an omni with a thyroid condition and she eats a lot of processed sugar and, well, junk. They don't have any weight problems, but they aren't healthy inside, and it scares me.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">

It looks good except can I ask why you are including the supplements? Supplements aren't raw but raw foodists who know they are deficient in certain things do take them. There are lots of plant foods that are good calcium sources. Looks like you are already eating a some of them.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://dfwnetmall.com/veg/plantfoodshighcontentcalcium.htm" target="_blank">http://dfwnetmall.com/veg/plantfoods...entcalcium.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
One thing I would change is the "raw sugar". Are you using the sugar that says "raw" on the package? Those aren't actually raw - although, better than refined white sugars, they still go through processing to clean them up. It is illegal to sell truely raw sugar in the US because it has a lot of impurities. Outside of the US you can buy truely raw sugar. I would use Raw Agave nectar instead for your sweetener. Or you can get raw sugar cane and juice it.<br><br><br><br>
Also, if you are trying for 100% raw than the popcorn would have to go.<br><br><br><br>
I can understand being afraid of the nuts since you had a reaction. Maybe go and get tested for possible allergies to other nuts than if there ones you are not allergic too you can include some nutritious nuts in your diet.<br><br><br><br>
Are you allergy to any seeds? Perhaps throw some sunflower, hemp or pumpkin seeds (raw of course) in with your salads. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
And maybe also try to include some sprouts in your salads or eat them by themselves? Also, try some tomatoes, carrots or some bell peppers in your salads too.<br><br><br><br>
Also, you didn't mention, but make sure your salt isn't table salt. Get Celtic sea salt or Himalayan Pink Salt (tastes better too). Table salt is toxic to your body.<br><br><br><br>
Anyhow, those are just my suggestions of things I would change.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I am guessing this won't be exactly your everyday diet and that you are adding some variety and changing some things around (trying different greens and fruits). But I think your plan looks good!

along with what QF said, i would add more leafy greens to your diet, too. and change it up a bit, as well, to get a great variety of nutrients. the darker the greens, the greater the nutrients.
