Daily green smoothie! This one’s spinach, bananas, hemp seeds and coconut milk. #eaeatsraw
mint + pear juice prep
Dinner: fresh green juice with spirulina, brown rice cooked with garlic and nutritional yeast, grilled zucchini, steamed kale and sliced tomatoes tossed with chopped mint.
I have no excuses not to eat healthy when synergistic food combinations like this are so easy to throw together and super satisfying. Poked a hole in my lemon with my pocket knife and squeezed it over individual red lettuce leaves. Salad on the road, bro!
My second lunch today
hi! hoping you could offer some advice. i'm gluten-free, vegan, & aim to eat raw during the day and have a cooked meal at dinner. my biggest challenge with this is my time management & planning skills. i find that i am constantly worrying about what to buy for a weeks worth of meals, when i should be soaking my nuts/grains bc don't know when exactly i'll be consuming them, finding time to cook, etc. it's especially hard because i have 2 jobs and 2 other gigs at the moment. do you have any tips?
Hey there! Well firstly, I usually eat raw fruit and greens throughout the day and a cooked/raw whole plant foods dinner. I rarely eat grains or nuts as I’ve found both are difficult for me to digest, and they make me feel sleepy and sluggish when I eat them during the day. Plus raw nuts are so damn expensive!
Secondly, here’s a link to my average shopping list.
Lastly, for budget and simplicity’s sake I tend to eat the same foods everyday. Usually my day looks something like:
Hope this is helpful! xx
Hello there, sexy avocado.
hey, i was wondering if i could get some advice from you since you seem so smart and easy going and you seem to know your stuff when it comes to food and your body. my best friend has always been really sensitive about her weight and the last several months she's been acting like she might have an eating disorder, or at least seriously disordered thinking about food and her body. what might you say or do to try and help her if it was your friend in a similar situation?
Sorry this took forever! That’s a tricky situation, one which I’ve been on both sides of… I’d probably try to be real with her, but respectful.
Casually be like “hey dude, I love you so much and I promise I’m not trying to be intrusive or seem judgmental… I know I’m not with you all the time but sometimes it seems like you may not be eating enough and that worries me because I love you and want you to be healthy. I think you are more beautiful and wonderful than you could ever realize, and if you ever need to talk to someone I’m always here to listen, (and if I’m way off base right now feel free to smack me for being nosey.)”
She may smack you or say thank you. She may be insulted, humored or relieved; you can’t really control her reaction, but you make sure she knows she is loved and supported no matter what.
Spicy raw red pepper marinara:
This raw smoothie combo was too crazy and delicious not to share: 1 kiwi, 1 apple (both organic and with skin), 1 ripe banana, frozen mango, a splash of orange juice and about a cup of water. + a gratuitous shot of my radish sprouts just because.
