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 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

For breakfast and lunch I had a smoothie made of;

1 cup of Blueberries
1 cup of strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
1 banana
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...


  1. I have the most biggest headache- please tell me this is normal! I'm hoping to get to where you are-- three weeks behind, but ready to be a follower! ;)

  2. You are doing great!!!!I went through craving meat for a while to. It was definately strange for me!!!! I realized that when I was last at this weight I was eating meat and my body is just detoxing! Isn't it amazing learning to listen to the wisdom of our bodies!!!=-]

    Debbie! I am almost 60 days 100% raw and I had head aches for the first week. It was just me detoxing! Good luck to you both.

    Love always

  3. Yes Debbie, it is very normal to have headaches during the transition. It is our body going through detoxing. Drink lots of water to flush out the moving want to flush them out of your body....bye bye toxins! I find putting some lemon in my water helps to flush it out more efficiently. I am so excited you are trying this!

    *Sweetie, thank you for the encouragement. The meat craving was weird because I had not craved anything for so long....but learning to listen to the body is will always tell us what we need!
