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!
