Going Raw – Day 16

A very good day. It seems this diet has either been about eating foods that taste good, but don’t benefit my body, or eating foods I don’t really like but feel really good. Today all three meals seemed to fit both criteria. My energy was consistent, my stomach was happy. I ate a mix of cooked and raw vegan foods today, and left out anything cold on the counter for a time before eating it. This seemed to work far better. Here’s what I ate today:

Breakfast:

apple, orange, soaked pumpkin seeds, cinnamon processed in food processor

Lunch:

Lentil vegetable soup from yesterday
Chia cherry pudding (recipe below)

Supper:

Steamed sweet potato, mashed with coconut oil
Tomato sauce over brown Basmati rice
Mix from breakfast with brocolli sprouts and red pepper
Chia cherry pudding

Chia cherry pudding:

After I made this, I grabbed the Agave thinking it might need more sweet flavour. It totally didn’t. I ate it and then sat happily waiting as my cells absorbed all the wonderful chia nutrients. Well, ok, I know digestion takes longer than that, but really my body seems to love chia.

1/2 cup chia seeds (soak first for a few hours or overnight0
1 cup fresh or frozen thawed cherries
1/4 cup raisins

Process in a food processor and enjoy. Makes plenty for 2 people to enjoy.
