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

I’m still working on raising money for the almighty Vita-Mix. I’m doing pretty well with it. I’m up to $210 so far. I’ll be making better Green Smoothies and Almond Butter in no time!
Speaking of SuperFoods, I have the dehydrator working overtime this evening. There is a tray of Sun Burgers, a tray of onion bread, a tray of Almond Bars and A tray of Apple cookies. All Raw of course. I can’t wait to eat tomorrow.
These recipies were really simple and only took a few minutes each to prepare. The key to staying raw for me is to make it as easy as possible for those moments when I am really hungry. If there are a few items prepared ahead of time, I am more likely to grab them instead of something un raw and unfood like. No nutrition, heavily processed food shoved into my mouth unconciously used to be my way of life, but I am living much more mindful these days and I sincerely hope you are too. Times are a changing and we must as well if we will intend to have a bright future that we control.
