Whilst I've been trying to cut down on coffee for months, getting rid of the first one of the day has proven impossible. I know many raw foodists eschew hot drinks but I have no intentions of making something that I know will be hard completely impossible.
1 x White Silver Needle Tea
This is my super-sexy loose tea mug. It means I can brew lovely cups of fresh tea, without destroying the brew. Each serving makes 4-6 cups of tea. I love it. This may be a sign I have well and truly left my partying, wild days behind me.....
I've made myself a "Crunch" Box to munch throughout the day. Today's contains celery and chopped peppers:
There's roughly 4 small celery stalks and half each of a red and yellow bell pepper in there.
1 x Banana
It starts approaching lunch time and I feel like I've been eating all morning. The problem with this sort of diet is that you need to eat rather a lot of food in order to get enough calories so that you don't start fainting all the time or looking like a twig.
1 x Orange
1 x Banana
For dinner, I make this:
It consists of about 6 grated carrots, a celery stalk, an onion, a handful of cherry tomatoes, yellow bell pepper and a bit of grated celeriac (I found it in the bottom of my fridge and it looked lonely). I add plenty of black pepper and a bit of sea salt as I have no idea if the balsamic vinegar or soy sauce in my cupboard are vegan or not *sad face*.
I eat about half of it, then put it down for a bit. It's hard going eating this much food in one go- I would never have thought that a salad could be filling. I do get to the bottom of it (eventually).
I finish my first day feeling slightly smug and looking forward to payday when I can buy some slightly more exciting food.
