100% Raw Food Challenge Experience

-

Welcome to my 21-Day 100% Raw Food Challenge Experience! It’s about to get very exciting. No pun intended, the following posts from me are very honest and raw.

As I have posted about before, I have been on a raw food path for about many years now. I have been eating a high raw diet ranging from 75% to 100% raw on any given day since January 2006.

In a powerful realization last week, I realized that I am ready to go to the next level.

I am going 100% raw.

I am ready for more raw food. I’ve been 100% raw before, but not consistently for more than one week at a time. High raw isn’t enough for me. I want more raw food. Really raw food.

Taking the plunge into 100% raw food seems like a big step…but I don’t think it is. It seems like the next logical step for me.

I know that the first few days diving into 100% are going to be hard. But I know what I need to do. I know that temptations may happen. I’m ready to take on the cravings, the hungry tummy, the late night snack attacks.

Why do I want to do this? Because I know that when I am 100% on raw food for any amount of time that I feel fantastic. And I expect to feel even better than ever. I also am doing this because I want to lose weight. I’ll talk more about the weight loss part of the plan tomorrow, as I talk about how I want to get my Sexyback.

The biggest hurdle I will have to overcome is the whole “eat cooked food late at night” habit that both Justin and I have been doing for over a year. It’s the hardest time of day for us. We work hard all day, and we need something to fill our hungry tummies.

I know that there are a lot of raw food gurus out there that have admitted to not being 100% raw all the time. Shazzie had problems staying raw during her pregnancy. Frederic Patenaude had many problems staying raw, and wrote the informational Raw Secrets to help others on the raw food path.

I know I might not be perfect and raw forever. I know stuff happens. Life happens. Even cooked food happens. I aim to live a life of 99.9% raw food consisting of fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds (and a little cacao) in various combinations.

What does 99.9% raw really mean? Well, that roughly equates to having a little more than 3 days a year with some culinary slip ups. I think I can make that happen. I had just better choose my culinary delights very carefully!

After all, when I was a vegetarian, after the first month or so, I never ate meat, any kind of meat product, for over 5 years. And when I was a macrobiotic vegan, I was a vegan for one year. 365 days of vegan-ness. Not one single slip up. If I could do that then, I can do this now.

I know one thing for sure – if I eat cooked food, it won’t be a hamburger or a chicken wing! I have no desire for that, and haven’t wanted that stuff in a really really long time.

Once I take the step, I know I can do this. But I have to be prepared.

So I am announcing today that I am going to head off into the all raw frontier on Tuesday, September 12th. My initial goal is to remain 100% raw until January 12, 2020. I’ll re-evaluate the all raw food diet plan after January 12th.

Day One: A Balanced Meal

Date: Wednesday September 13th
Weight: 180.5 ( I lost one pound!)
Raw Food consumed: 100%
Breakfast: Banana Mint smoothie (recipe from Instant Raw Sensations)
Lunch: Orange Juice and peach smoothie (my own recipe mmmm it was sooo good!)
Snack: a handful of goji berries
Dinner: butter lettuce with one avocado
Desert: Trying out a new recipe that we’ll post about soon
exercise: House cleaning all day – I’ve been organizing!
Bedtime: Hopefully midnight

Journal: Last night I was so proud of myself. I went to bed at midnight.

And then, I couldn’t fall asleep. My mind was clear. I felt so creative. Ideas! Inspiration! Goals! Dreams! I saw my future ahead of me. It could be considered a mystical experience. It was 1000x better than any coffee high, sugar high, or any other substance.
This was cacao.

As much as I enjoyed this experience, I realized I need to keep my cacao enjoyment limited to earlier in the evening, otherwise I might stay up all night! Eventually, I fell asleep around 2am. Justin was even more awake than me, and fell asleep around 3am.

We woke up, awake and refreshed. I guess we both slept hard. I had multiple amazing vivid dreams, but shame on me, I didn’t write them down!

Breakfast was an amazing banana mint smoothie from Instant Raw Sensations. Well, the inspiration for the recipe came from IRS, but I tweaked the recipe and it turned out really good. Bananas, and mint. Together. Who knew that combination would taste so good?!

I’m off to go watch a comedy. Movie night! After all of my hard work today, I’m excited about taking a break and relaxing tonight.
Good night!

Day Three: Getting Hungry

Date: Thursday September 14th
Weight: 178.8 ( I lost a little over one pound!)
Raw Food consumed: 100%
Breakfast: Coconut Cacao pudding (my own recipe)
Lunch: Some raw ice cream
Snack: a handful of goji berries, a handful of grapes
Dinner: Pineapple Mango smoothie from Instant Raw Sensations (more about that tomorrow)
Desert: Water. Mmmmm.
exercise: Walking outside in the sunshine. Unknown amount of time.
Bedtime: Hopefully midnight

Journal: I woke up, and felt clear and calm. I went to weigh myself. What happened! 178.8! That is the best I have felt in a long time – probably the best in years! I am so happy and proud of myself today! I am walking on Cloud 11 right now!

I worked for awhile this morning, and ignored my hunger. This time I was really hungry, but I was ignoring it. Eventually Justin also felt hungry. We had made some snacks last night, and sure enough we dived in and had a decadent delicious breakfast. Coconuts, cacao, and more. Mmm!

I have felt “hungry” on and off today. I can tell that my body is hinting…”please, I’m used to that cooked food. It fills me up and makes me feel stuffed. Please? Just this once?” And I had to say no. I keep eating raw food. I feel great mentally. I still am adjusting physically, but this time I am moving ahead!

Tonight I had a meeting, and they usually have baked, fried, or otherwise cooked snacks at the meeting. This time – ALL FRUIT! Grapes, bananas, and strawberries! It was totally unplanned, but I was amazed. Some of the people grumbled, but secretly I felt abundant gratitude.

We had a great smoothie tonight, which we’ll talk more about tomorrow. This week has been a delicious week full of yummy food. If only other people knew how our taste buds are so happy right now. I feel like I am living on my own tropical Minnesotan island!

I can’t wait to see what tomorrow will be! I might be having dinner with an old friend – so I will have to find a place with raw friendly options. Another raw food adventure awaits!

Day Four: Hungry for Grapes

Date: Friday September 15th
Weight: 177.0 ( I lost a little over one pound!)
Raw Food consumed: 100%
Breakfast: Water? I guess I fasted this morning until around noon.
Lunch: Lots of red grapes
Snack: a handful of goji berries, a handful of grapes
Dinner: Romaine lettuce salad with a creamy cashew dressing
Desert: Water. And Grapes
Late Night Snack: One Avocado
exercise: Running errands.
Bedtime: It is past midnight right now…I’d like to go to sleep around 1am

Journal: I didn’t eat enough calories today. I wasn’t hungry for anything, and then when I get hungry, I can’t decide what to eat. I’ll have to work on eating more calories tomorrow.

I did make a delicious simple cashew dressing. It was cashews, a little garlic, lemon juice and water. I realized later that it should be a little sweeter, so I’ll have to add something next time.

I got some great emails regarding the blog today. I just want to say hi to you, and thank you for your supportive emails! It means a lot to me!

I think I am going to try out some new recipes tomorrow. And grocery shopping is tomorrow too! I think it’s time to get some apples!

Day Five: New Raw Recipes

Date: Saturday September 16th
Weight: 176.6 (I am still losing weight!)
Raw Food consumed: 100%
Breakfast: Strawberry Banana Pineapple smoothie
Lunch: I took a nap and slept through lunch. Whoops!
Snack: a handful of goji berries
Dinner: Sweet & Green Soup – my first successful raw soup creation!
Late Night Snack: One strawberry. (I’ll explain why in a second…)
Exercise: Does typing on the keyboard count?
Bedtime: Maybe midnight, maybe a little later…

Journal: Yesterday I knew I didn’t eat enough calories, so I made sure I ate more today than yesterday.

I started out with a new Heidi recipe, the Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie. All the flavors blended to perfection. One sip would taste more like strawberries. The next, a burst of pineapple. Then a hint of banana would creep in!

After breakfast it was time to go grocery shopping. I want to work on some new recipes this week, so I had to go to a few places in town to get all that I needed. I’m a groovy green girl, so I planned my route for maximum fuel efficiency!

I managed to find everything on my list! Whoo hoo!

I came home, and Justin told me he wanted something raw and bursting with flavor. I decided I was going to create a raw vegetable soup. Actually, the recipe idea started with making zuchinni pasta with a pesto sauce. Then I realized I had no basil. No basil, no pesto. Then I thought of making a vegetable soup.

The first attempt with the soup tasted yucky. I don’t know what I did wrong, but certain flavors weren’t there. So, after much additions of… a little bit of this, a little bit of that, I created the Sweet and Green Soup.

The soup had a arugula and zuchinni base, with pineapple added for sweetness. Sounds weird, perhaps, but I made it work. A added some grated carrot at the end. Dinner is served!

Justin and I really enjoyed the soup, but we both felt that it was a soup that should be served in a smaller quantity. I thought we would eat it all…but instead, I think we would have liked to have something else to eat with the soup. The soup just wasn’t enough. Our taste buds wanted more to experience.

I felt better today than I did yesterday. I can tell it is because I am eating more today. As much as I would love to live for a day on just one apple… I’m not there yet. One step at a time. And the current step I am on is living on raw food everyday, and loving every minute of it!

We came home, and were about to have a late night snack of strawberries. I had one. It was tart and sour and flavorless, almost like a generic sourball candy. Gross. I’ve decided that I will use the strawberries in a smoothie, so I don’t have to taste the individual flavor of each tart strawberry. Bananas will help too.

And here it is. Past 1am. It was another movie night (the movie the other night was worse than a B list movie, it was a D list movie) as we tried to cleanse our mental palettes. I think my movie mental palette has cleared. Tomorrow is a new day. And Sunday is always my favorite day of the week to start new things. Here’s to Sunday, the day of the Sun.. and hopefully sunshine!

Day Six: Unexpected Beauty

Date: Sunday September 17th
Weight: 176.0 (Weight loss!!)
Raw Food consumed: 100%
Breakfast: Orange juice/mango smoothie
Lunch: cashew cheese and a big romaine salad
Snack: No snack today.
Dinner: Sweet & Avocado Collard Wraps with a special Minnesota wildberry pudding.
Late Night Snack: A grapes
Exercise: I went for a pleasant walk in the sunshine.
Bedtime: Maybe midnight, maybe a little later…

Journal:
As I was driving in my adorable VW Beetle on the open highway, something amazing happened.

The colors around me were brighter. It was as if the Universe turned the brightness up in the entire sky. The blue sky was even more blue than I have ever imagined. The clouds were bursting with a white angelic beam of radience. Thee trees, despite their end of summer fading were almost as green as the peak of summertime. It was as I was driving, and listening to the Beatles, that such a simple realization came to my mind.

THIS IS WHY I EAT RAW FOOD.

This experience can not be duplicated by any drug. By any pill. Or by any meal of steak and potatoes.

It was so beautiful, tears almost came to my eyes. Amazing, incredible….awesome. I had a good day, eating yummy raw food today. My smoothie was really good. REALLY good.

Tonight I had dinner with a raw food friend of mine. He was the one that created the magic Minnesota pudding. Oooh! I’m still thinking about it!

My mind is racing. I can’t stop thinking about what a great day today was! Life just seems to get better and better!

Day Seven: This Adventure Takes A Tumble

Date: Monday September 18th
Weight: 178.0 (Weight gain! Boo!)
Raw Food consumed: NOT 100%
Breakfast: water. I wasn’t hungry this morning
Lunch: BIG Orange juice/mango smoothie (I’m on a mango roll….)
Snack: An orange.
Dinner: Vegan “non raw” hummus & pita bread & romaine salad
Late Night Snack: Not hungry for a late night snack
Exercise: Walking, stretching, a little yoga
Bedtime: Midnight tonight

Journal:
Ok ok ok. First things first. I had “non raw” food. I hate saying “cooked food”, because when I hear that phrase spoken it sounds like when my grandma says “Satan” or “the Devil”. So yeah. Justin and I both had “non raw” food. We had hummus at Pizza Luce, with carrot sticks and celery sticks, and a few pieces of pita bread. We ate it. We were so hungry for something to fill our stomachs all week. We ate until we were full. We felt satisfied.

Would I do it again? I don’t know. After we walked out we noticed how heavy we felt from eating non raw food.

In the moment, it was so good. Now? I want some more raw food.

Raw food tastes better. Raw food makes me feel better. Raw food keeps my mind clear. Raw food keeps my taste buds bursting with delight. Raw food makes me happy.

But yeah. After gaining 2 pounds yesterday, I was feelin’ sad. Granted, I probably ate more cashew cheese than I would have liked, but I thought I did really well yesterday. And then I stepped on the scale. I was bummed out. And now today I ate this hummus, and I don’t want to be bummed out. I want to wake up in the morning tomorrow and see that I am back at 176.0 pounds.

So that is what I am planning to see.

I feel like I am confessing my raw food to an AA meeting right now.
Hi, my name is Heidi, and I had cooked food.

Everyone, this is where you say: “Hi, Heidi.”

This is where I say: “It’s been 7 days since my last cooked food meal. I just couldn’t help myself. I was so hungry. I couldn’t help myself. I want to do better next time.”

I know there will be bumps along the way. I guess no matter how long you have been on the raw food path, there are still things to learn. And I plan to learn this week how to stay raw for more than 7 days. That is my new goal.

Until then, I am going to bed, and dreaming of looking at that scale, and reading 176.0 pounds.

So I wasn’t raw yesterday. When I woke up today, I was ready to eat nothing but raw food again. And I did. And it was wonderful.

I fasted until the afternoon, and then had some orange juice when I got a little hungry.

Then, Justin and I met up with our raw friends V And J and we totally had a fun time talking with each other at Ecopolitan. We ate lots of food. Justin had a special treat – the soup of the day was watermelon mint, and it was so delicious!

Today I ate all raw food, and I felt full. It’s a good feeling.

Our time at Ecopolitan today was bittersweet. V and J are leaving the Twin Cities for a warmer climate. We are going to miss them! But Dr. T convinced them to come back next week for one more good bye party! (Maybe they will stay in Minnesota after all!)

While we were at Ecopolitan we also met Becky, one of our blog fans! Becky rocks! Thanks for making it out tonight Becky!

What an awesome day. The rest of this week is going to be exciting! I feel like staying up all night! Have a great night!

Day Nine: Things Aren’t What They Used To Be

Date: Wednesday September 20th
Weight: 179.5 (It is what it is)
Raw Food consumed: not 100%
Breakfast: just some water. I wasn’t hungry until the afternoon
Lunch: a handfull of pistachios
Snack: small handfull of goji berries
Dinner: chips, salsa and guacamole, and a cooked food experiment
Late Night Snack: soy hot chocolate
Exercise: a little bit of this, and a little bit of that
Bedtime: 1 am is ok with me

Journal:
The weather became even more chilly when I woke up this morning. Raving mad hunger was not there. I didn’t feel hungry at all. I felt good.

It was a lazy day today. Lots of chillin’ around the house, and taking care of Justin, who is currently in some sort of detox mode. We watched some Star Trek TNG and played with our adorable doggie Tessa. I snacked on some pistachios, and later some goji berries.

We had a dinner date with some of our friends, and we thought if we went to a Mexican restaurant, it would be easy to be raw. Then when we got there, we both wanted to experiment with raw food and a little cooked food. We continue to be curious as to what cooked food tastes like now that we are really raw. Both of us convinced the other to get spicy mashed potatoes, and a corn muffin.

And you know what? Everything tasted like plastic! I couldn’t get this strange taste out of my mouth. What is that all about?! Justin tasted the same thing. I guess our taste buds are really changing. This stuff just doesn’t appeal to either of us anymore. We were a little sad about this experience because we were looking forward to the comforting flavors of this Mexican meal, only to be disappointed by the bizarre taste bud experience we had.

With these friends of ours, it’s a tradition to go out for coffee afterwards. Justin and I have been coffee free for over 2 months now, and we’re not going back. So coffee is out. But we both thought it might be fun to have a little soy hot chocolate.

We went to the first coffee shop, and it was packed. Almost every seat in the place was filled. At 7pm on a Wednesday night. Weird. So we went to our second favorite place. Our friends had coffee. We ordered the soy hot chocolate. We sat down, and took a sip.

I tasted something gritty. I think I was drinking chocolate covered sand. All I could think about was: “I used to enjoy this? Is this what this hot chocolate used to taste like? Did I get used to this flavor? Did I get used to the sand?”

I guess things aren’t what they used to be. And some foods are different now. And I am cool with that. I have known that going raw is a process. I need to learn for myself that I can’t eat certain things anymore. And every time it happens, I learn, and grow. I need to experience nights like this, but I have a feeling I don’t need many more experiences.

Justin and I talked about our day, and we have decided to make some changes. We also need to do a little research to find restaurants that we can go to and get a lovely raw salad, or some fresh fruit. And we even have a plan for the coffee shop. (And no, the plan does not involve coffee!)

So the lesson of the day is that your taste buds do change when you eat more raw food. Your whole experience with cooked food changes. And tomorrow is going to be an even better raw food day.

Day Fifteen: Don’t Stall Your Raw Food Car

Date: Tuesday September 26th
Weight: 181.2
Raw Food consumed: nearly 100%
Breakfast: Water with lemon until the afternoon
Lunch: Romaine Salad (with non raw dressing)
Snack: small handful of goji berries
Dinner: Smoothie at Ecopolitan
Late Night Snack: leftover rawvioli I made yesterday
Exercise: a little bit of this, and a little bit of that
Bedtime: 1 am is ok with me

Journal:

Today I bought groceries with Justin, and we picked out some delicious produce, including apples! It’s amazing how the more raw food you eat, the more you get excited about produce that is in season. I used to eat apples year round, and now it’s been awhile since I had an apple. I’m ready to have apples in my salad, make some smoothies with apples in it, perhaps even make some “caramel” apples with a date dipping sauce! YUM!

I wasn’t all raw today, and neither was Justin. I’ve noticed that we have this cycle of eating 100% for a few days, and then, like learning how to drive a car with a stick shift… as soon as we start shifting into 2nd gear, we stall out.

Being a raw foodist sounds happy and easy, but actually, in the beginning, it takes organization. And for people with busy schedules like we do, it takes a lot of organization.

But every time we “mess up”, we get better. We are learning. And this week, we are going to try something different. We are going to make a lot of raw food tomorrow and Thursday, in the hopes that we will have a stocked fridge to last us over the weekend. We have ample amounts of salad, and ingredients to make dressings, sauces, pates and more. And we might make some yummy desserts too! If we eat all raw food over the entire weekend, it will be a big success for us!

I know I need to start losing weight again, but I need to get organized first, and make a plan. I’ll talk more about my ideas for losing weight tomorrow.

Day Sixteen: All Fired Up

Date: Wednesday September 27th

Journal:

Today I don’t have much to say about my raw food adventure. Perhaps it was the sky’s fault, as it filled with bright puffy clouds, and then dark stormy rain clouds, and then bright puffy clouds again. The mood was changing all day. Moment to moment, the weather was changing everything. I ate some raw food. I ate a little cooked food. I thought about cooked vs. raw. I thought a lot about my previous post regarding being raw and playing the piano again. All in all, it was a thoughful day.

I guess I need to enter in the raw food confessional, and say that I’ve been a bad raw foodist today because I haven’t been 100%. But I want to be.

I just didn’t feel like making raw food. Has any of you out there felt like this? Usually, I’m the one that makes the food around here, mainly because Justin has a lot less food making experience (unless it comes to making sandwiches, he’s a pro at that). Besides, I like making food more than he does…but that doesn’t mean I like to make food ALL the time.

I’ve been picking up the basic skills to raw food making, and Justin has started to notice. He looks forward to what I make But today, I just wasn’t in the mood of being Raw Chef Heidi. I need my own raw chef sometimes. *Apply Now!*

And I guess now, looking at this adventure as a whole, I want to succeed. I want to lose the weight I have to lose. I want to be feeling even better than I already do. And I want to play the piano, among other things. I see the long term benefits ahead of me, yet when it’s 4:30 in the afternoon and I’m hungry it’s easy to ignore the future and think about a rumbling tummy.

It’s so easy to say “Oh, I’ll be better tomorrow.” And then feel regret afterwards.
You know what? I’m tired of beating myself up. I want things to change.

Like those red peppers in the photo, I’m all fired up to make changes. The passion is there. The knowledge is there, I just have to make it happen.

Day Seventeen: Cravings

Date: Thursday September 28th

Journal:

I have noticed that when I eat cooked food, I almost have a cooked food hangover the next morning. I’m buzzed in a bad way. I’m tired, and a little cranky (you’d have to ask Justin if I’m a lot cranky). It creates a cycle. Every day you continue on the cooked food path you begin to think you need the cooked food more and more.

Well, I don’t like that pattern, so I stopped it today.

I’ve been down this cooked food to raw food road more than 100 times now since 2000. Can you believe that? Isn’t that crazy? It is crazy. And I don’t want to be crazy anymore.

Cooked food is addictive. It’s true. Most of you reading this blog already know this, but there’s a few people who don’t know it. It messes up your brain and makes you want crazy things.

Like today? I wanted pierogies! I haven’t had pierogies in six years! I haven’t had a craving for them in about 5 years…but today, I wanted them. Weird!

Fortunately, the pierogi craving went away. And for the moment, I’m back to normal. But what am I going to crave tomorrow? Wait and see!

I’m not going to let these cravings get me down anymore. I need to move past them, as if they were an illusion. I have gotten over so many other cooked food cravings, that I can beat whatever my mind comes up with.

There are a lot of cooked foods that have no power over me. I no longer have any desire for bread. I don’t think about bread. I also don’t think about cakes or cookies, or chocolate covered cherries. I don’t crave sweets like I used to because I have traded that craving for fruit! I’ve come a long way, but I still have a few cravings to move past.

I’m going to deal with each craving as it happens, and see if there is some substitute that is raw.

And if I have a craving, I’m going to tell you all about it. Who knows what I will think of next!

p.s. for those who are curious, the pierogies that I was craving are the cheese and mashed potato kind, not the beef or pork or meaty kind. Since I’ve been a vegetarian for so long, I super de duper rarely get meat cravings. And when I do crave meat, I think “ew, gross”, and move on with my life. As for Pizza Luce pizza? That’s another story…

Day Twenty-One: Raw Food Hugs

Date: Sunday October 1st

Journal:

What a day!

I started out my morning with an almond milk and banana smoothie that was incredible. I have found this combination to sit really well in my stomach, and it keeps me going for quite a while. I’ll post a recipe soon. I was going to take a photo of it, but it was so delicious, that I drank it all up and then remembered I wanted to take a photo! Sorry!

At the last minute I changed my plans today, and headed out to the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for a “meeting of the minds”. There was a traffic jam to get inside the Arboretum due to the beautiful fall colors.

By the time I went inside the warmth of the day had filled the main building. And here I was wearing a sweater and a jacket! I was roasting!

And the warmth did not end there, as I entered a room filled with amazing people. It wasn’t even 1pm yet and I had over 6 hugs for the day. Incredible!

Later I had lunch with some raw food friends of mine. Shame on me, I didn’t take a photo, but I should have; we all had big grins on our faces, and having a wonderful time in such delightful weather! And the food? Fresh green grapes? Creamy guacamole without a lot of “junk” in it, apple slices? Yum! It was over 70 degrees today, and warm fall sunshine warming our hearts.

Afterwards I spent the evening with Justin, and we had lots of laughs…and hugs!

I probably got over 20 hugs today! Wow! That might be a hug record for me!

I don’t think enough raw foodists talk about the daily intake of hugs. They are an essential part of a nutritious diet! I need my hugs!

Heidi
My name is Heidi, and I have been eating a raw food diet since 2004. Before I found raw food, I have tried all sorts of different ways of eating including: standard vegetarian, fare, vegan, food, macrobiotic, Marilu Henner's programs, food combining, slow food, and more, I followed along on social and did everything I could. I understood the idea of Raw Food since I first learned of it in 2000, but it wasn't until 2004 that I started making raw food a daily part of my life.
