Going…Raw Vegan? Day Three

Day Three:

Whoa Bananas. Seriously. May I never eat such things again.

Don’t get me wrong, I love nanners. I wish I could eat them all the time. Today I just made a STUPID choice.

I came to the conclusion a few months ago that I am allergic to bananas. I never was officially checked with a doctor, I just knew that every time I ate one, I got sick and lost my cookies, well… you-know-what. I would get racked with pain, the sweats, the whole nine yards. I just thought that maybe I got sick because I was eating more fiber than my body was used to. Then when I went to Whole Foods this last weekend and was skimming the produce section, my eyes came upon the golden bunches of joy. I thought, “Surely I will have a ton of fiber this week, and my body will be fine!”

Not the case.

How I felt after a few bites.

How I felt after a few bites.

Soooooooo yeah. Here’s the synopsis:



Mid-morning Snack:

Banana (and there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth)


2 apples

peanut butter




There was quite a significant time gap between the banana and lunch. I actually had to leave work it was so bad. But… lesson learned I guess. Everything else was delicious. The pineapple especially was quite tasty, but my teeth and for whatever reason my tongue (???), were really sensitive afterwards. As the week progresses, I feel like going vegan officially would be rather easy. Its going 100% raw I am finding difficult. I just really miss hot food, especially in the evenings. I think its because I have a habit formed where I eat a salad for lunch, and the evening meal is always cooked. And when I find something I like, I like it and I don’t like to change. On the plus side, I have reached a huge personal accomplishment this week! I had been at a plateau in my weight-loss where I would gravitate between a couple pounds, and now I have broken the plateau and I’m losing again! I sort of feel like I’ve been on a juicing cleanse, I guess. I’m sure it’s water-weight I’m losing, but hey, the hydration this week has been great.

Peace, and may your bananas always agree with you.
