Raw Food Experiment – Day 5 Monday, October 4th, 2010

Today felt a little like work. Like, I went to meet friends at NXNW this morning for brunch, and REALLY wanted a beer. But alas, my willpower prevailed. haha this is definitely challenging. More so from a social aspect than from anything else. The food is all great, no complaints there. Just makes going out and doing anything a little difficult. This is THE diet to go on if you want to lose weight, I’ll tell ya that. Not that I’ve lost a lot (I decided I’d just update at the end on weight), but you are restricted from doing much in the way of social dinners. So you’re not going to overeat. And you are super conscious of what you are putting in your body. Which is a good thing.

1 half seedless watermelon
Walnut Pecan Cherry Ginger Granola
1.5 cups Almond Milk

So I ate that, and then headed out to brunch with friends… where I had…. water 🙂 Even the OJ in places, unless fresh squeezed, is going to be pasteurized. Even iced tea is considered cooked. Basically, everything that you are putting into your body has to have never gotten above 105 degrees F.

Oops! I skipped it. Damn. This is going to be a low calorie day.

Large Salad
3 cups Baby Romaine Lettuce
1 cup Baby Carrots
1 Baby Cucumber
8 Cherry Tomatoes
Soy Ginger Vinaigrette

Oh man is this dressing good. I think I’ve found a new go-to recipe for regular “cooking” around the house.
