Monday, March 27, 2006

Today was a very stressful day, with assignments due that I had not completed and very little sleep. I had a nice salad for breakfast, though, put together by my girlfriend who is starting her first raw day officially today. Good for her! She did very well and is already noticing that she doesn't crave raw foods the way she does SAD foods.

Today was the first day of my new plan of not tracking my nutrients and staying off the scale. Not tracking my food was easy, but not weighing myself was harder- I caught myself right before I was about to pull the scale out!

Despite not tracking my nutrients, I know I didn't do well with the protein today. I took to the university 2 oz. of pumpkin and sunflower seeds mixed together with a little sea salt, two bananas, and a small container of taboule, avocado and hummus. I didn't leave the university until extremely late at night, so I didn't have a regular dinner- just a smoothie. My plan for tomorrow is to eat as much protein as I can. I have a very busy day coming up and really don't know how I'll manage, but if I can at least get used to munching on nuts and seeds, that will help in between meals.

There are a few raw protein powders out there as well. I have some raw hemp protein right now, which is good for both protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. (Yum...)

There are also a couple of raw smoothie products out there. At $3 a serving, they're a little pricey, but the nutrition is excellent and they could be very convenient for you to take to school as a snack or small meal. One is called Juvo, and the other is called Vega. I've had the Juvo; it's yummy but not too sweet at all. I haven't had the Vega, but I really want to try it. Check out:


Good luck!
