I often get asked exactly what I eat in day as an alkaline eater.
I’m 100% vegan – so no meat or dairy products ever and I like to eat a lot of my food raw and organic. Always low fat, high in carbs and low in protein. Did you know that 80% carbohydrates is optimum, with just 10% protein and 10% fats being more than enough to cover your nutritional needs? Yup! You get the best source of proteins from leafy greens without realising it often.
Once or twice a week I prefer to go 100% raw on what I eat. See my video below for a full breakdown of what I at this week on my 100% raw day. I ate purely organic fruits and vegetables and nothing more. You can try this too for great energy and a health boost 🙂
For my breakfast meal I starting off my day with leafy greens and minerals. I made a big salad and it tasted really lovely. It’s made up of organic leafy greens, green olives, organic grapes, beans, tomatoes, and cucumber. I actually made the dressing up as I went along (with ingredients I needed to use up). It’s made up of tomatillos which are a cross between tomatoes and physalis. It has this outer leafy thing, and they look like a physalis but they’re green and taste like tomatoes. I’ve blended up some of them with one whole mango, a little bit of cumin, half a lime, half a tomato, and some black pepper. These made my sweet salad dressing for my wonderful salad.
At 11 AM I ate a big punnet of organic grapes and cherries. Approx 200 grams of cherries and 400 grams of grapes. So that’s about 350-400 calories in total.
Moving on to my mid-morning snack, I indulged myself with a delicious banana ice cream smoothie. Your bananas should be brown and spotty and you make ice cream by freezing them beforehand. I’ve frozen about four bowls of these things and I took a bowl out of the freezer, placed 4 ½ bananas inside my Vitamix blender, added a little water and one mango to sweeten further. And there you go – a sweet, delightful healthy dessert that can melt your heart 🙂 By the way, coconut milk can also be an alternative for water. But I’m 100% raw today so I chose water instead.
Later I had a ‘raw energy ball’ I made with persimmons, apples, organic dates, spices (cinnamon and mixed spice) and raw oats which I frozen last week. I blended the ingredients together and each of the balls have about a hundred calories.
Lastly I had my quick lunch break before going back to work. I ate organic sugar snap peas and then a 500g pack of medjool dates.
Later in the evening I went to the gym for a short workout and then my boyfriend and I boarded a ferry to France for the weekend with our bicycles 🙂
On the ferry I ate my standard evening vegetable crudité ‘meal’ of lots of cut vegetables including carrots, cucumber, celery and broccoli.
Why not try a 100% raw vegan day yourself? It’s a great thing to do every now and then to really get in optimum nutrients and clean out your system, giving you lots of energy and really helps with fat loss, having great skin and generally feeling tip top!
