Going…Raw Vegan? Day Two

Day Two:

I had a rather sobering day today, and for those of you who want to curl up on my proverbial couch and listen, mug of tea in hand, you are more than welcome.

Today I was in a car accident.

It wasn’t a big deal, just a fender-bender, and everyone involved was fine. It’s just that those kind of moments make you examine your life for what it is. It made me think about my job as a receptionist. It made me think about my family and friends. It made me think about my dreams of being a mother someday to a little curly-haired boy who looks just like my husband. It made me think of my faith in my God. It made me think about just how fragile this body really is.

Why does it take something ‘earth-shattering’ to make me think about important things? It’s generally not until I’m sick, or see a threat, that I think about the importance of my health. Please, dear friend, don’t wait to think about these things.

“Rhed, you’re being such a downer!”, says Brain.

“We were just in a freaking car accident!”, answers Adrenaline.

Adrenaline wins. Muahahaha.

Ok. On to food:

Day Two of “Raw Vegan” is as follows:

Breakfast:

One Apple

Snack:

One Apple

Lunch:

handful of Snap Peas

Celery

Orange

Apple

Supper:

Salad made of spinach, yellow peppers, almonds

Dessert:

Two apples

Organic Peanut butter

Day Two food-wise has been delicious…and yet I want a Panini. I miss hot food. I am really loving all the flavors of the fruit, and I feel great when I’m full, I just don’t think I’m eating quite enough fruit yet. Today I didn’t pack as much for lunch, and when supper-time rolled around I was ready to eat anything I could get my hands on. Thankfully, all I had was organic fruit and veggies- Success! I think I need to research some different raw vegan recipes though, because I can see myself quickly becoming bored. I tried some raw Asparagus. Boy did that leave something to be desired… On the plus side, my teeth haven’t been sensitive at all today.

Stay awesome, folks.

Peace.

  1. I think it’s so awesome that you have decided to eat healthier! I just started the paleo diet with my hubby and we are loving how great we feel! I’ve considered going raw in the past– and I’ve also considered going vegan, but I love meat too much lol

    One very crucial aspect of healthy eating, though, is protein intake. I know I’m not a nutritionist, nor am I the healthiest person on earth. But I know that eating protein #1 gives you essential nutrients that your body needs to improve physically #2 helps you to stay focused on your day and #3 makes you feel fuller longer. I love love love green grapes. If I could, I would eat only green grapes for the rest of my life. But I know that I need something that is a heck of a lot more substantial. Nuts do contain protein, but not enough to help maintain muscle or energy.
    I don’t want to step on your toes or make it seem like I’m judging (because I’m absolutely not). I simply hope that you’ll consider my advice 🙂
    P.S. It has been wayyyy too long since we last spoke! I miss you and our shenanigans!

  2. You are totally right, protein is incredibly important! I’ve been a vegetarian for a long time, and its something I need to be mindful of and make sure I’m eating enough nuts. This week has been a trial run so far, so we’ll see what my assessment is in the end. 😉 Thanks for your input, and I miss our shenanigans too lol.
