Before Breakfast - I drank mugs of hot water with lemon, up to four cups (a liter) before I had breakfast and after my 600ml bottle I had during yoga in the morning. Lemon water is fantastic because it gets your internal organs moving and helps with detoxifying the body.
Breakfast - I mixed together (in my magic Ninja) a combination of a cup of unsweetened almond milk, a cup of blueberries, a handful of spinach, a half cup of water and some coconut oil. Sometimes I threw in some goji berries as well. It was quite delicious!
Lunch - I had a very vegetable based lunch consisting of a green capsicum sliced in half filled with celery, tomato, carrot and homemade hummus - so delicious but perhaps a bit garlicy for work!
Afternoon snack - I had a few nuts and another shake made up on water, whey protein powder and a banana. I love this shake so much. I know that the powder is not exactly natural, but I would struggle without it.
So how did I go, well I lasted the five days fine and I did feel great. I found that instead of craving fatty foods and what not, I simply craved a warm meal. I lost a kg from being on this plan and I learnt alot about myself and my relationship with food. HOWEVER, I would not be able to do this for a long length of time, I think cutting out food groups like your meats, dairy and carbs, is too hard to maintain over a long period, it is a great way to detox though. I have decided to use the principles of raw food across my days, by eating raw food for breakfast and lunch but having my nice warm, yummy salmon for dinner.
Have you tried a raw food diet? What did you think?
