Day 23 of my Raw Vegan Diet
I am started totally craving Protein today. I couldn't understand it because usually I crave nothing. I don't even like to say it, but I was craving meat. I was getting gas at the Chevron and there was a huge poster of a big juicy hamburger...wow..it was so attractive, I had to use every ounce of willpower I could muster not to go speeding through the white spot drive through. Now, if I wasn't on this diet I probably wouldn't be tempted by such things...greasy...I dunno....anyways....I was like "Kelly, get a hold of yourself woman...what is wrong with you??" I started thinking about what I might have ingested that made me crave like a crazy person...I thought hmmm...everything I have been eating is good for me.. raw pure live food. What does meat have in it that I am craving so much....?? PROTEIN......I have had hardly any protein the last 2 days. I left my Hemp powder out of my smoothies for 2 days..cut back on eating nuts and have been eating mostly raw fruits and veggies...ah huh!! So off i went to consume nuts and seeds....and that is exactly what was wrong...sorry body. It was nice to stop craving meat though..that was almost disturbing for a newby vegan..lol
For breakfast and lunch I had a smoothie made of;
1 cup of Blueberries
1 cup of strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
1 scoop of Vegan Supplement powder in berry flavor
1 scoop of greens concentrate
1 TBSP of Coconut Oil
1 hand full of Ice
For snack I had snap peas, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, green grapes
some nuts and seeds...about 4 oz.
For dinner I had carrot and tomato soup..I will post the recipe laterz...
Have a great day!! I am off to the hyperbaric chamber...
