On the Raw Side II: Day 4

This was day four of my raw food challenge πŸ™‚

The Food

  • Breakfast – Green Smoothie (14.75 oz Bananas, 6 oz Berries, 3/4 cup Apple Juice, 3/4 cup Coconut Water, 2 oz Kale, 2 oz Spinach)
  • Morning Snack – Didn’t have one.
  • Lunch – Green Smoothie (11.5 oz Bananas, 6 oz Berries, 3/4 cup Apple Juice, 3/4 cup Coconut Water, 2 oz Kale, 2 oz Spinach)
  • Afternoon Snack – 1 Banana, 1 small Apple, & 2 dried pineapple rings
  • Dinner –Β  I ate what was left of the 8 year old’s salad from last night (very little left after the other kids got a hold of it), plus 7 oz Bananas, 3 oz Kiwi, 3.25 oz Clementines, 2 Medjool & 1 oz Sprouts
  • Evening Snack – 1 serving dried Pineapple, 8 oz Apple Juice
  • Water – 50 ounces
  • Calories – 1,960.1 (Carbs 92.3% / Protein 4.9% / Fat 2.8%)
  • Fiber – 52.5 grams!

The Exercise:

The Results:

  • I don’t have any “results” to report at the moment. I won’t weigh until Saturday and then it will still be a week from then before I have something to compare.

The Effects:

  • I woke up rested again this morning.
  • Calories are a little low right now but the night is still young πŸ™‚ It’s date night so I’ll have to post updated counts tomorrow. – UPDATED above
  • The Girl (8) completed her raw challenge at 2pm today. That was 72 hours. I asked her why she wanted to end it today. She said it was really hard to eat differently from the other kids. I knew that was going to be an issue. Yesterday she made the comment that she “can’t” have something. I stopped her and explained that she can have cooked food, she’s just choosing not to. So, today she comes to me and says that she’s choosing to stop eating raw πŸ™‚ These socks accurately capture her sense of style and bright little personality.
