7 Days Raw Challenge - Day 3

I have to admit I was tempted by a latte last night but I had a herbal tea instead.  I also found I was really tired last night so went to bed early.  I picked up two more days of food at lunchtime today.

Here's what I've been eating today:


I wasn't hungry first thing so I took some fruit to work with me to munch on.

I also ate spicy seeds which I actually think are better than...CRISPS! Simply delicious coated with vegan soy sauce, garlic and chilli.


For Lunch: Pasta with Courgette and Sweet Potato noodles with tomato sauce - oh WOW this was amazing - spiral coils of courgette and sweet potato which looked exactly like real noodles topped with a delicious tomato sauce with dried tomatoes and topped with seeds.  I was stuffed after this.


In the afternoon I had a snack of mint creams - a delicious minty and slightly sweet mouthful.  Made with avocados, cashew nuts and cacao butter. I ate them all as they were so good.


My other snacks included courgette crisps, crackers and cashew cheese and I got some more spicy seeds.

For Dinner: Coconut & Orange Curry which was packed full of tasty vegetables in a spicy sauce.  Really fresh tasting with a kick!


Pudding today was Pecan pie. It was served with cashew cream and tasted nutty and sweet and delicious!

  4. I have never thought about raw food before but these posts have been wonderful. I love the sound of cashew cream, my body doesn't like dairy much and this sounds like a great alternative. x

    1. Thanks! The food is really tasty. I'm sure cashew cream would suit you and almond milk which has a really rich taste x
