Give us this day.......
We are lucky.. and thankful for the bounty of fruit laid before us each day. Our family consumes ~ 100 lbs of produce per week at this point.
We eat green smoothies, fruit, greens, vegs, and some nuts/seeds.
The kids are doing great .. eating 100% raw (unless the school gives them candy/junk in class - it happens).
My wife and I eat low fat raw vegan. She is ~98% raw... this year - I am 100% since Dec18 2009.
Here is an example of our daily fare:
Bfast - Split a Green Smoothie (4 bananas, 3 oz berries, handful baby spinach, water) Lunch - Fruit - 1Banana, 1apple, 1/2 cup raisins (each) Snack - 4 dates each Dinner - Fruit - 1 banana, 1/2 apple, soaked dried figs (4-5) or another green smoothie After dinner digests.. we will give them guacamole or almonds... and maybe some flax oil before bed.. they need fat... we let them have as much as they want.
Grazing mono fruit (mostly grapefruit, oranges, strawberries).. when hungry.... no real schedule.. .
Inspired by twin sons diagnosed with Autism and our own fading vitality (fatigue, brain fog, candida overgrowth, metabolic acidosis, bad breath, ibs, white tongue, grey hair, bad skin, vertigo, depression, anxiety...etc..) we have been 95% Raw since November 2008 and are currently implementing a high raw low fat vegan (HRLFV) diet. Our kids need more fat - but are now HRV starting 2010.
It's NEVER too late to start LIVING !!
