What I Ate On Day 15 of My Challenge


Hello all! Vegan mama Dee here! Now, I have not been giving you a lot of updates on my 40-Day Raw Vegan Intermittent Fasting Challenge because there was nothing to report back. Yes, I know, it's still an excuse. Until recently, I was basically eating the same foods every day, which was getting boring (except for my smoothies, lol). At the same time, I was making new creations for my family and they said my meals were delicious. I can't wait to remake some of the meals after the challenge. Here's what I ate on day 15:



During my fasting time, I drank citrus water... It's about 2 1/2 cups of 9.5 alkaline water, which I get fresh from my machine. If you want an alkaline machine, visit www.enagic.com or call 1-833-579-7559 and use sponsor number 7318992. For the citrus, I sliced up half an orange, half of a lemon, and half of a lime. I also added colloidal minerals, which is liquid minerals. Here's a pic of my citrus water:

To break my fast (aka breakfast), I drank a green smoothie, which I always look forward to. Click here for the recipe. 


For what you would consider lunch, I had a salad with avocado sauce. It was delicious, as well:

For dinner timeframe, I ate a kind of burrito or taco or something, lol, using seasoned and marinated veggies and guacamole in a marinated squash skin. It was so good. I ordered some raw coconut wraps, which will get here next Friday. So looking forward to that. Anyway, here's my dinner...

I was busy for most of the day. The citrus water kept me in check so I'm going to keep drinking it.

If you enjoy my food blogs, please let me know. Next Friday, I'll have my raw coconut wraps so I'm looking forward to sharing that experience with you. Until then, talk soon. Much love!

P.S.--my natural hair is currently loc'd. I started my loc journey in July 2018.

Three Green Raw Vegan Meals

Three Green Raw Vegan Meals

Hey, it's Dee! As you know I'm still doing this 40-Day Raw Vegan Intermittent Fasting Challenge. A few of you on Instagram said you want to go raw vegan, but you don't know where to start, so let's start with 3 literally green meals. Keep in mind, I'm a vegan, not a raw vegan. After the 40-Day Challenge, I will be incorporating some cook foods back into my diet.

Meal 1
Since the challenge, I've been breaking my fast with a smoothie (after 12 for the first 10 days of my intermittent fasting challenge). So, technically, that would make it breakfast. So, start your first meal of the day with a healthy green smoothie. Earlier in the day, of course, I drank my Raw Dee Tea (that's what I'm calling it; you can call it whatever you want), but I don't count my tea as a meal because it has no calories. I'm actually going to give you 2 green smoothies to choose from for breakfast because they are so similar. Watch the videos below:

Ingredients:
(All ingredients were frozen due to meal prep)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 to 1 serving of a mango
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 stick of large celery (or 1/2 a stick)
  • 3 tbsp of omega-3 rich seeds (seeds are also a source of protein)
  • 2 or more raw dates
  • 8-10 oz coconut water
Main Tools: 
Directions: Put everything in a small mixer, like a NutriBullet, and blend for up to 3 minutes.


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 bananas, frozen
  • 1 cup or 140g tropical fruits, frozen
  • 1/2 stick of celery
  • 3 tbsp of omega-3 rich seeds (flaxseed, chia seed, hemp seed; also protein source)
  • 2 tbsp plant derived mineral liquid
  • 16 oz coconut water
Main Tools:
  • Vitamix
  • Measuring cups
  • Knife (I love my knife set)
  • Cutting board
Directions: Put all ingredients in the Vitamix starting with the cold items first and ending with the liquids. Blend on smoothie setting of Vitamix.


Meal 2
This meal can be eaten for lunch or dinner. It's a nice, rich, healthy salad with homemade avocado and cashew dressing. Eat as much as you want, but don't overdo it with the avocado and nuts.

Ingredients:
  • Favorite salad vegetables (make it colorful)
  • 1/2 large avocado (healthy fat)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup soaked raw cashews (more protein and it has healthy fat)
  • Liquid (water or another type of liquid)
  • Seasonings
Main Tools:

  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • NutriBullet or Ninja

Directions: Put the avocado, cashews, liquid, and seasonings into a small mixer, like a NutriBullet, and blend for about a minute. Keep adding more liquids if you want it to be thinner. Add the avocado sauce to your salad.

Meal 3
Our last meal is going to be a spiralized meal. Spiralized meals are a great way to add a different texture or style to an otherwise boring fruit or vegetable. Plus, with a great sauce, they're delicious. You can make them colorful, but for the sake of this blog post, we're going to keep it green.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cucumber or zucchini
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored (and/or 1/2 of a large Hass avocado; will make it creamier and add healthy fat)
  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked (the more you add, the creamier it will be)
  • 1/2 cup liquid (water or another type of liquid)
  • Seasonings

Main Tools:

  • Spiralizer (big or small device)
  • Measuring cups
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • NutriBullet or Ninja
Directions: spiralize your cucumber or zucchini and set it aside on a plate. Mix all the other ingredients together in a small mixer, like a NutriBullet. Add more cashews if you want it to be creamer or add more water if you want it to be looser or waterier.

That's all I have for you today. I truly hope you enjoy your green, raw vegan meals. Please don't forget to support my project at www.HerStolenTears.com. Thank you!
