An Everyday Look In A Transitioning Vegan's Life

Conclusion of Raw Vegan Week

Hello beautiful people!

I apologize for the delay in releasing this post. After working three night shifts in a row and the recovery that follows I’m happy to say I’m back! In this post I will be following up on the last couple days of eating raw meals.

To be honest, days three and four of eating raw went ok. I either didn’t eat due to how busy work was or I was so hungry that I ate something else (i.e. donuts, French fries, grilled cheese). I know. Don’t judge me. I compiled a small list of what I believe the pros and cons of eating a raw vegan diet and how I feel about pursuing a raw diet permanentaly:

Pros:

  • I didn’t have to use the oven or stove
  • I had more energy
  • Experienced physiological hunger vs. emotional hunger
  • Felt lighter

 

Cons

  • Can get very expensive
  • The meals weren’t always filling. I had to eat something every 2 hours
  • The recipes were time consuming and required a lot of prep.

 

Overall, there are aspects of a raw diet that I will continue to do in my future meal planning. I will keep incorporating a breakfast smoothie. It was a great starter to my day and gave me energy. I also plan to include one raw meal per day into my diet. One meal is  more doable than all meals being raw; Plus it forces me to eat more vegetables, which is something I’m still working on. I already know for a fact that eating only raw permanently is something that I wouldn’t want to do right now. I love warm food but maybe someday in the future I could do it long term. Until then I’ll do my best to include tidbits of what I learned and make adjustments along the way.

What are your thoughts?
