RAWR VEGAN, RAWR!

Loving these fruit and veggie juices! They’re made with 50% fruits and 50% veggies. The predominant flavours in this one were carrot, mango and parsnip. Who’d have thought juiced parsnips would taste so good? (:

Insert random story here :p
So, I was trying to give away a chair that I no longer have use for. I posted an ad online yesterday saying it was free to anyone who wanted to collect it. Within minutes of posting the advert, I got a text through from someone wanting to claim the chair, and asking what I wanted for it. I told them I didn’t want anything. A minute or two later they text back saying they’d bring a bottle of wine. I politely explained that I don’t really drink alcohol, but that I really appreciated the thought. After a short pause, they said they’d bring chocolates instead. I had a moment of panic thinking they’d bring me animal products in a genuine attempt to show gratitude, so I replied telling them that the item really was 100% free, and that they’d be doing me a favour by taking it off my hands, but that I would accept a piece of fruit in exchange. 
A few hours later, right on time, they turned up at my door… with a little gift bag filled with beautiful fruit! (As pictured above!) I couldn’t believe my eyes :D It made my day! I literally would have been delighted with a couple of grapes! (it’s been a week or two since I’ve had grapes and I’m starting to miss them!) I love when people take me by surprise with random acts of kindness and good deeds :)

Anonymous asked: You have 7 bananas for breakfast?!? Do you not feel bloated afterwards? I suffer so badly with bloating from all the fibre and water content of fruit and veg! It's so demoralising. Any advice?


Answer:

Sometimes I have 10 :p 

Bloating tends to occur when fruit is eaten on top of cooked food. If you’ve eaten cooked food the night before and then have fruit for breakfast, for example, a little bloating is normal. In such instances, it’s not the fruit causing the bloating, it’s the cooked food that it’s catching up with in your stomach. Raw fruit digests much faster than cooked foods, so the cooked stuff will be sitting in your stomach still, getting in the way, while the fruit’s trying to work its way through your system!

I drink between 500ml and 1 litre of water [around 20 minutes] before breakfast each day to aid good digestion and minimise bloating. I mostly aim not to have my cooked meal too late in the evening (though sometimes that idea goes out of the window and I’ll be munching rice at half eight or a bowl of cauliflower at ten :p)

Are you new to a high raw lifestyle? Do you still consume a lot of oils/salts? Do you combine different kinds of fruits in one meal? These could also be factors here. Or it could be that your body is still detoxing? Feel free to message me in private off anon if you want to speak further (or anon again is cool, of course).

Anonymous asked: I'm 14 and I wanna go raw been a vegan for a months now.. Can you give me advice ?


Answer:

Firstly: try to get the support of your family (and friends) if possible. Sadly, veganism is still very much set apart from social norms (that which is considered ‘normal’/accepted behaviour in modern societies) so people will be bound to question your reasons for considering this, simply because they don’t understand. 

The second piece of advice is to research your socks off! :) Make sure you understand the concept of raw veganism inside out. Learning where to obtain vital nutrients & how much to eat is crucial in making this lifestyle a success. Useful starting points for research: 

FullyRaw - Basic Q & A on Kristina Carillo-Bucaram’s website (8 years fully raw vegan)

Raw vegan YouTube channels:

MeganElizabeth

FullyRawKristina

Also, try googling ‘801010 Diet Free PDF’ to find a free online copy of The 801010 Diet by Douglas Graham. 

I hope this was helpful. If you think of anything else you think I could help with, please don’t hesitate to drop me a message (:

Banana Carob Ice Cream topped with seeds (aka: what I’ve had for breakfast pretty much every day for the last week :p) Love the earthy flavour of carob; it’s like a cross between chocolate and coffee :)
Ingredients: about 7 frozen ripe bananas, 1 tablespoon of carob powder, and enough water to blend. Topped with pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and flax seeds.

Anonymous asked: How do you by food ( bananas) in such big bulk?


Answer:

I bought those bananas from a local supermarket. I just asked for a box at the checkout so I could carry them more easily :) It worked out about £12 for the whole box. Occasionally I’ll happen upon places offering discount on very ripe bananas that they’re trying to sell off quickly, but not often unfortunately!

BANANA CINNAMON ICE CREAM WITH ORANGE SAUCE
I love the simplicity of low-fat raw vegan grub! This is just frozen ripe bananas blended with a bit of water, then topped with cinnamon and drizzled in fresh orange juice. This is one of my favourites! It’s so refreshing! :D

100 beautiful bananas ♥ 
Should last me a day or two :p Actually, they’ll keep me going for 1 week+ depending on what other fruit I have in at the time (my evening meal is generally rice and veggies/leaves). Now got them lined up in anticipation on my ripening shelves! (:
