Welcome to Day 15 Raw Vegan Detox 🌱 First fully raw day!
This long weekend has been so incredibly lazy! I don’t feel guilty at all though, I really needed time like that. Relaxing and doing nothing 😉
How was your long weekend, anything exciting going on or maybe you were relaxing like me? 😉
Cacao Mint Smoothie in bed to start the day right!
Here is the original recipe, however I changed it a bit. Instead of dates I used blue agave and I think I will stick to it moving forward. It makes the smoothie more smooth and taste as good as it taste with dates.
After breakfast it was time to go for a run. I really felt it this morning. Sometimes running feels like an obligation and I hate every minute of it but not today. I was excited to go out there and run! Even though it wasn’t my fastest run I truly enjoyed it!
Lunch was really simple. I felt like I really need something hydrating and this juicy watermelon made a perfect meal!
And after running and lunch is time… for some quality time on couch with my favorite crew 😉
My very first Raw Onion Bread! I made it in dehydrator and it took quiet some time but it was totally worth it!
Craving bread was always the biggest struggle for me in going fully raw. It’s an addiction I cannot fight, yet.
Recipe coming soon! I’m still working on it. I eat it as I wrote this post and I know I should have left dehydrate it for a bit longer.
On this sandwich we have green onion, tomato and the most delicious Raw Vegan Mayo!
Salad with Vegan Caesar Dressing and Raw Sandwich
For salad I used whatever I had available, romaine lettuce, avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, sprouted sunflower seeds and kale crackers.
For sandwich I used dehydrated mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, avocado and raw mayonnaise.
What is 8 week detox about?
It’s a detox and introduction to eating raw for longer period of time. Divided in 3 phases – Phase 1 (two weeks) adding smoothies, juices and salads to meals; Phase 2 – where you are 100% raw; and Phase 3 – you eat 80% raw, gradually introduce 20% cooked food.
If you follow my blog you might now that I started experimenting with raw food some time ago. I started #RawTuesday and I went fully raw once a week. Now I feel that I am ready for next step. I don’t feel ready to go 100% raw, but I think 80/20 is a perfect combination for me right now. I believe it will let me to keep the perfect balance between eating raw food and cravings for cooked food.
