Tired of the guesswork of what you should eat for the day? I know I was. That’s why I always looked to meal plans to give me ideas. I always had to adjust them to suit my diet. I am here now sharing my weekly ideas with you.
On a raw food diet it is important to get in enough calories and not too many fats so I will show you how I do that here. Feel free to tweak it per your own calorie regimen if you like. A great tool for checking/tracking calories is Cronometer.com. I personally eat until I am satisfied and still I maintain my normal weight. With raw foods it is very easy to melt the pounds so you will notice the majority for the day are simple meals, just fruits and veggies and I will throw in a more gourmet raw vegan meal to add some savory to the pallet for the day. I know my tongue needs it daily so I assume there are others like me out there. Enjoy!
I usually buy a whole case of bananas and freeze them. Some fruits like mango, peaches and berries I buy organic and frozen at Whole Foods. I will have some fresh as well but it is nice to have the frozen fruit already prepped and ready.
My plans always keep the budget in mind. I don’t go crazy on too many different types of produce so I can get produce organic in bulk to keep cost down. I also look for organic deals at a great local grocery store here in Chicago called Stanley’s on the North side. They have organic produce very reasonable. I also don’t have time to make too much of an intense time consuming recipe every day so it is mostly simple which is great for the waistline 😉
