Happy Wednesday! How's it going on this lovely day? I'm doing quite well. It was a super warm summer day and any day that is over 75 degrees is a good day to me. So I decided to start doing "What I Ate Wednesday" posts. I get quite a few questions about my diet because I don't eat just a "regular" vegan diet. I eat a high carb, raw till 4 diet. I know a lot of your are probably thinking, "a what diet?" Well let me give you a little overview of Raw Till 4. I eat raw foods until dinnertime, most of my calories coming from fruit. Then for dinner I have a cooked meal of carbs such as rice or potatoes. Living this lifestyle gives you the freedom to eat unlimited calories every single day. So freeing! So delicious! So awesome! I plan on doing a more detailed post about Raw Till 4 in the near future, so if you don't feel like researching it more then don't worry! You can come here and I'll tell you all about it.
Oh and I have one more thing to share with my favorite people. (aka you guys) I'm now on YouTube!! Check it out. I talk a lot more about my Raw Till 4 journey, working out, and all kinds of fun stuff like that. Like, subscribe, comment, share, etc. Let's connect there too!
Okay, now onto the good stuff! The food from today. Mmm. Ready?!
Breakfast: Blended watermelon - 11 cups
I loooovee watermelon. I really love it. I found a watermelon sale a few weeks ago and bought a total of 10 watermelon that week. YEAH 10. Told you that I love it. I eat 1/2-1 watermelon everyday. But I'm not going to ramble on about watermelon all day. Today for breakfast I blended up 1/2 of a watermelon and had about 11 cups of watermelon for breakfast. I usually drink half before my workout and half afterwards. Perfect for hydration!
Lunch: 10 bananas & 12 dates smoothie
Let me just start by being honest here. I forgot to take a photo of this smoothie. It's really such a shame too because it was so good! But you do get this lovely screenshot of my intake video that I posted to YouTube. So I put 10 bananas and 12 medjool dates into the blender. It tasted like a cool caramel milkshake. I can't get over how good it was!
Dinner: 1 and 1/2 cups jasmine rice and 1/4 cup zucchini
Okay, this probably looks boring but I've grown to love simple meals. Plus, this is a look into what I really eat in a day. It's not all brownie ice cream explosions and peanut butter crumble granola. Sometimes I wish it was, but that's not food that makes me feel good. I was eating way way too much fat before transitioning to Raw Till 4. Fat isn't bad! I was just consuming so much because of the recipes that I made and the foods that I enjoyed at that time in my life. I'm not saying that I'll never ever eat a higher amount of fat in my diet again, but right now Raw Till 4 is really great for me and I love experimenting with various foods! So fun. Anyways, just plain rice is great! I wanted to add more veggies to this but I literally don't have anymore right now. I also add a tiny tiny (like 1 tsp maybe) of gluten free, low sodium soy sauce for some flavor. Yum!
That's all for today. I was so full of energy tonight that I was basically bouncing around the yard like a little kid. Try it sometime and see how it makes you feel. Take advantage of all of the beautiful summer nights and delicious summer fruits! Smile, laugh, and eat lots of carbs! I'll leave you with these cute pictures of my little friends.
