I thought I’d give you an idea of what my first few days at High Raw looked like.
Smoothie: spinach, coconut water, banana, kelp
Snack in the car: almonds & goji berries
Lunch: veggie burger on veggie bread (I prepared and dehydrated the night before) w/ lettuce, raw mustard and raw ketchup
Snack: squash chips, flax crackers, 1 apple
Dinner: I really wasn’t hungry, but I had a small salad and 1/2 cup of a smoothie.
I juiced ginger/cucumber & 2 carrots then added a frozen banana, spinach and maca to make a delicious smoothie
Snack: almonds & lemon water
Lunch: small salad w/ veggie burber
Snack: 2 vanilla macroons (I made the night before) & 1 small banana
Dinner: squash spaghetti w/ tomato garlic sauce
I woke up late so I took a small salad to eat on the way to work
Lunch: veggie burger/veggie bread/lettuce/tomato
Snack: smoothie ~ blueberries/banana/horsetail/maca/dates & juice pulp from day 2 am drink
cayenne flax crackers
just before dinner: almond bar (I made day prior)
walk in the park
Dinner: Jicama/lime nori wrap
I really got hooked on the veggie burgers. They were so filling and nutrient dense that it gave me a ton of energy and kept me full.
Well, this is day 6 of my 30 days at high raw of 100%.
I’m feeling great and my digestion is getting better too. Yesterday I was really tired. That was a combination of lack of sleep and detoxing I’ve been enjoying a wide array of raw dishes and trying new recipies each day.
I can’t wait to test what’s in the dehydrator as I plan my week ahead. There are so many great dishes to make. If you have one you’d like to submit, I will post it on RawMa’s Blog

A co-worker recently mentioned that they wanted to learn more about the benefits of Coconuts. That got me thinking. I’d bet the general public doesn’t know the wonderful things a coconut can do for them.
Here are just a few of their many benefits. Coconuts can:
Enhance thyroid function
Accelerate weight loss
Balance your hormones
Boost overall energy
Super hydrate you
Coconut Water has been found to be 10 times more hydrating than water, tastes great in smoothies, or drinking alone and can be used on your face as refreshing tonic like they do in the tropics.
Our skin is made up of connective tissues. These tissues give our skin strength and elasticity. When we are young and healthy the skin is smooth, elastic and supple. As we age, we all know what happens to the outer appearance of our skin. Coconut oil can add many benefits to aging skin.
Unrefined “Virgin” Coconut Oil applied directly to the skin will soften and enhance your natural beauty. It can be used all over your body as a softener and the added benefit will be your skin “drinking” it up to support your system and fend off free radicals. Coconut oil will not only bring temporary relief to the skin, but it will aid in healing and repairing. It will have lasting benefits, unlike most lotions. It can help bring back a youthful appearance. The coconut oil will aid in removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, making the skin smoother. The skin will become more evenly textured with a healthy “shine”.
It will help to reduce chronic skin inflammation within days and be soothing and healing to wounds, blood blisters, rashes, etc. It is an excellent ingredient to use in healing salves and ointments.
I use it for everything. I put it in my smoothies, use it on my body especially around my eyes to reduce the “wrinkle effect” and on my hair/nails/feet. It’s an over all great skin smoother.
Add it to your dogs food. My dog LOVES it.
Drink it, eat it, slather it! You’ll be glad you did.
