Three weeks on RAW

I have been having an absolute BLAST being raw! Still no major cravings (only when hungry and tend to go make myself a green smoothie which take the hunger pains away), still feel fabulous and...


 In the three weeks I've been RAW, I have lost 3.3kg with NO effort whatsoever!!! No exercise. None! Nadda! Zip!

The reason I have done no exercise (besides the fact that I am one lazy unmotivated shit right now - it's winter, give me a break!) was to see if changing my diet alone would do anything. And it has. I can only imagine how great it would be if I actually moved my fat ass AS WELL AS ate amazingly! So I am going to spend the next week thinking about what I would like to do, when and for how long so I can begin to get my exercise mojo back and maybe help improve my weight loss even more!

I'll keep you posted.

Awesome!! I would love to taste some of your raw food dishes :)

Thanks. Pretty boring really - mostly green smoothies, fresh fruit, salads and raw balls.

Where can i get the recipe for the raw balls?

My raw balls are usually just thrown together. the basics are 1c almonds (or other nuts), 1c dates, then combinations of sultanas, goji berries, cranberries, apricots, dehydrated buckwheat groats, dried pineapple, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, nut butter, coconut, etc etc. Just what ever I have on hand. then I add a splash of agave (and sometimes a dash of vanilla)) just enough to make it stick together. I love to roll it into small balls and freeze for when I get a sugar craving.
Hope that helps :)
Also check out those raw books I lent you - I'm sure Ani has some in her book!
