Day 28-Superfoods!

I have reached the 28 th day with this experiment being on Raw vegan non sugar diet and it has been very interesting and a lot of fun. But it has also been though and it has made me very pissed of a few times. In fact my sister told me that the first week when I had cut off all the sugars including fruits she woke up by me saying -"what the fuck"in my sleep. I think it was they day after that when I decided to start having some fruits again;-) I have learned a lot about Raw food and how my body responds to it, what works for me and what doesn't. For example I have learned that I function very well and feel really good when I eat less sugars (including fruits). I have realized that to much nuts and seeds really screws my stomach up big time. And one other thing that I find very interesting is that I don't really need any breakfast any more. I can have a green smoothie if I want to. But I'm also fine without it. It is kind of funny because it contradicts  everything that I ever learned about nutrition. I don't know how many hundred times I have heard that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But now many people say that it is very important that we give our digestive system a longer rest and that breakfast just is something that we have invented and think that we need, when in reality we are better
whit out it. I don't know if that is true for you but it works really well for me.

Another thing that I have learned during the last 4 weeks is that it takes a lot of planning and very conscious decisions if you want to eat raw. One of the main reasons for that is that it is very easy to fall back into old patterns and do what you are used to doing the society around us does not really promote and support a raw or healthy lifestyle and there are absolutely no raw restaurants where I live. One thing that has really helped me not to fall for unhealthy temptations when hungry has been to always carry with me a bag with nuts, dried frutis and superfoods like cashews, gojiberries, mullberrys, brazilian nuts etc. It is super easy to take them with you and they are filled with great nutrients for your body. 

Here is a video about some of the super foods out there. Enjoy!

  4. I usually wake up between 07-08. I have my first meal a couple of hours after waking up. But if I work out in the morning I usually have a green smoothie before because my workouts are long and intense.
