Raw Vegan Recap

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Well, the raw vegan experiment is done. The results? Inconclusive. I have a lot of fruit allergies, so I dealt with a lot of congestion/sniffling/sneezing this week. I slept more than usual, but it's possible I wasn't taking in enough calories. That's hard to do when you're just consuming fruits and vegetables and a few nuts. My skin looks better than it has in years, though. Lost a couple of lbs., spent more time than I ever have in the kitchen. Grocery bill was actually slightly lower than normal. It would be hard to do with a 9-5 job. Not impossible, just difficult. I definitely plan to incorporate more raw fruits and vegetables into my diet, but I'd have to commit to the lifestyle for a much longer period of time to determinte whether it was for me. I'm glad I did it, and I plan to do another 'raw week' sometime in the near future. Thanks for all the encouragement!

    You go gurl! Would not have been able to stick with it. As with anything, the more you do it the quicker and easier prep gets. And getting the right balance of everything your bod needs will take some tweeking. I could probably do a juice thing once a day for a snack, I just prefer to take the time to chew.

    Saw on tv yesterday and thought of you, magicbullet has come out with a machine that is supposed to beat everything to a pulp at the flip of a switch, easy cleanup too. But wait there's more...
