Raw Vegan Challenge Week 2_Days 8 to 14

 

Starting the week I would clean out my refrigerator and get rid of anything that had gone bad or added leftovers to smaller containers. Next, I would write down the items I didn’t have to create my full grocery list of items I’d need for the week. So for example, if I still had garlic or walnuts left from the batch I previously purchased, I wouldn’t buy that again (read about week 1 here!).

Cost

Again, each week varied, depending on how much fruit I craved or nuts I needed or how many people I also made raw meals for. I’d spend between $40 – $100 (though spending $100.00 per week is rare). Again, it varies week to week (like any typical shopping list).

Note: I spent less than Week One because I had a lot but was running low. I probably spent about $40-$50 on Week 2.

How I felt & Cravings

This week I started craving carbs. I did not give in. I fought the urges. Still not feeling deprived.

I still felt so good. I felt lighter, physically. Noticed I had better digestion. My energy increased during the daytime hours and made me want to go to bed earlier (Like week 1). Still reducing my caffeine in-take (Click here for my coffee addiction details).

I track my food daily on Instagram (click here to follow me!). All of the pictures below are from my Instagram page. So the photo quality may be different than my other pictures. Recipes coming soon for some of these! Let me know if have a request!

NOTE: Sometimes I ate Protein Bites or fruit I made as a quick snack between meals or if I wasn’t home and was hungry, I’d snack on raw nuts I kept in my purse!

TIP: The BEST fast food is fruit! Grab & go!
