Do What's Right For YOU

Sunday, June 2, 2013

While I talk a big game about keeping foods simple, raw, and nutritious, I also am speaking from my own experiences. What is right for me may not be right for you. This blog is about encouraging you to try new things, eat more fruit and veg, and be healthy. In no way am I telling you to do everything I do. I'm not perfect. And it may not work for you. I watch a lot of raw vegan YouTube channels to get ideas, but not everything they do is the best for me and my body either. It's trial and error. I'm still working out a few kinks (my bladder - which is better by the way) to try and get it all right for me. And it may end up changing for me as well. One day at a time, folks. It's all we have.

Breakfast:
  • Smoothie (6 small bananas, 1 tbsp. chia seeds, 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon, 1 cup coconut water, ice) = 600 calories
Snack:
  • 5 ataulfo mangoes = 500 calories
  • Watermelon and cucumber juice = 150 calories?

Lunch:
  • Salad (3-4 cups organic spring mix, 1 cucumber, 1 carrot, and 1 cup cherry tomatoes) = 125 calories
  • Dressing (2 tbsp. red wine vinegar and 1/2 tbsp. EVOO) = 65 calories
Snack:
  • 1/3 cup cashews = 175 calories
  • 1 1/2 cup sweet cherries = 110 calories
Dinner:
  • Brown rice pasta with Ragu = 500 calories
    • I'm trying to get rid of this jar. I'll be eating more tomorrow, so that should be it.
Calories: 2225
Colors: Yellow, black, green, red, purple, orange
Water: Didn't measure today. Probably upwards toward 100 oz.
Exercise: Walking, picking peaches
Sunshine: 1 hour
Sleep: 7 hours. Didn't get to sleep in this weekend.

We went to a peach farm in Mesa to pick our own peaches today. It was a good time. We went with two of our friends, and we're probably going to go back in a couple weeks. My father wants to go, so we'll take him next time too. If you're in the Phoenix Valley, check out Vertuccio Farms in Mesa. Haven't tried any of the peaches yet. They need to ripen a bit first. But I'll let you know! We ended up with almost 30 pounds of peaches. Yeah!

 
 
Almost 30 lbs of peaches.
 
Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.
