Hey You RAWsome RAWKstar!!!!
Today is DAY ONE!
are you excited? I sure am…..
Almost every client in the history of my career has asked what I eat in a day. Well, here you go. I’m 100% raw during the day yet like a cooked meal at night on occasion. If you had told me 16 years ago that I would one day live on a nearly all-raw plant food diet, I wouldn’t have believed it. I was so addicted to stimulating foods, particularly bread and corn chips, that the thought of giving them up was enough to give me anxiety and make me cry. Transitioning to an all raw diet took some effort at first yet as I started to see and feel my body change it made sticking to it easy.
Tip #1: Start each day with warm lemon water sweetened with raw honey or stevia. Keep yourself busy in the morning doing things you love or need to get done like daily movement (exercise).
Tip #2: Though I will be giving you a daily meal plan that doesn’t mean you have to follow it. If you’d like to keep it super simple like I do, do this every three days:
- Make a big batch of my Sunflower Spread.
- Cut up raw veggies to have on hand. Use the Sunflower Spread as a dip for veggies.
- Make a 64- ounce mason jar full of Green Lemonade.
- Make a HUGE salad and add avocado or other raw yummies with a raw dressing upon eating.
For those that like variety, here is your meal plan for today.

Fasting for as long as possible is important in helping the body learn to listen to when true hunger strikes instead of eating out of habit. I usually am not truly hungry until around 3pm. At this time I will have a freshly made juice.
First thing in the stomach. 🙂 I prefer green juices over fruit juices as I seem to respond better to less sugar. This will take me through to my next meal which is always a salad.
With a salad I will have a raw soup or herbal tea. I find this helps to fill me up leaving me satisfied and energized until dinner time.
A light dinner is easy to have when you know dessert is on the menu. 🙂 I’ve been known to have 5-6 wraps! Don’t be afraid to over eat on foods like this. In the beginning, over eating on salads is a natural part in helping to break food addictions.
Not only is this delicious treat filling and fun its highly nutritious as well. 🙂 Enjoy it!
Tip #3: I like to end my day with herbal tea, a hot bath, and some down time with my husband. End your day away from the kitchen and focus on the things that are important to you outside of food.
