Raw Vegan Challenge Week 4_Days 22 to 28

cabbage-vegetable-power-green.jpgAs usual, I’d start the week by cleaning out my refrigerator and getting 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.

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-$60 on Week 4 (I ate more fruit this week).

How I felt & Cravings

This week I started craving bread. I did not give in! I fought the urges.

I felt lighter, physically. I had even better digestion than before. My energy continued to increase during the daytime hours and made me want to go to bed earlier (Like week 1 and 2). Still reducing my caffeine in-take (Click here for my coffee addiction details) but my headache were not too bad.

Week 4 Exercise & Weight

Exercise: 2 out of 7 days

  • Strength training

End of Week 4 Weight Loss: 11 pounds total (from day 1)

End of Week 4 inches Lost: 2 inches off my waist

End of Week 4 Clothes: My old cloth fit and most are big!

Days 22 to 28 MEALS

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!
