More Raw Meals and a GIVEAWAY!!

Today was another day of raw eatin...I'm not gonna lie, I doubt I'll do 100% raw after the end of this week.   I'm finding it a little more difficult than I expected...I think part of it is because of my crazy schedule and workout routines.  I've found it takes longer for my muscles to recover after an intense workout and while I feel like I have a lot more energy from eating unprocessed foods, I'm missing the grains and more substantial recovery meals.  I'm going to stick out the rest of the week but after that I'll go back to eating some cooked foods, mainly after exercise.

That said, check out the eats!

Breakfast: A pile of watermelon and a banana

Midmorning: I couldn't deal with another migraine so I had an 8 oz cup of coffee that was half decaf half regular :(

Lunch: Yummy salad with greens, raw corn, sun-dried tomato, cucumber, carrots and broccoli. Noms.

The rest of the day I just snacked on some raw treats including dehydrated kale chips (totally overpriced from Whole the Bombay Ranch flavor and it is so savory I can't eat more than a few at a time), baby carrots, raw nuts and this yummyness:

Homemade citrus (lemon juice and orange zest) larabar :) So GOOD!

OK so Shenandoah Vegan made a great suggestion and I think it is time for a giveaway! I love to bake and since I am going to have access to my brother's big beautiful kitchen in 2 weeks, I'm going to bake some treats and share them with 2 of you!! All you have to do is comment on this post by Sunday, August 28 and tell me your favorite holiday to bake for and why :)  I'll use that random generator thing to choose 2 winners to receive treats I'll bake the week of August 29 :)  Good luck!!

And by the way, I LOVE baking fun, creative treats for halloween which happens to be my favorite holiday! I also love the winter holiday season because everyone is so festive and I love making a huge variety of yummy cookies to share with everyone!



  1. Well, it all looks beautiful. That's one of the nicest things about raw food - the energy and vibrance emanate.
    I would love to sample those kale chips but I would never pay for them!
    And as to this GIVEAWAY of which you speak, my favorite holiday to bake for is probably Thanksgiving. Understated but always appreciated - and all my favorite autumnal flavors. Pumpkin can do no wrong.
    Caffeine withdrawal is the worst. Hope it was better today.

  2. Make certain health is in a claim that it is safe for you to function on your abs. Also, healthily together with exercise will be the greatest method for somebody to color their very own abdominal exercises and achieve their optimal how you appear.

  3. Okay, I keep falling for these giveaways and losing big time, but I'll play one more time.

    My favorite holiday to bake for is also Thanksgiving (Pumpkin stuff) and I want some of those Chocolate Chip/Brownie Truffles (which I presume you already have some made so shouldn't you just PICK ME!!!!! to make it easy on yourself??? YES)

    Whazzup with Montanna? Who colors their ab exercises?

  4. I saw those kale chipes in WF the other day and so wanted to try them, but couldn't bring myself to pay that much for them, so I made my own over the weekend. :o)

    My favorite holiday to bake for is Christmas time. I seem to get into the baking mood more then. You can send some of Shen's truffles my way...those sound delish. :o)
