Raw Challenge!

Extreme? Maybe. I have been wanting to do a raw challenge ever since my husband told me about Fully Raw Kristina's Instagram. The problem - I love bacon. Like a lot. BUT I really like challenges too. So, I decided after my third Whole30 challenge, that I would try a raw challenge. The Fully Raw Challenge is 21 days, and I didn't want to commit 100% to that. So, I decided to just get my feet wet - seven days. I bought Brad's Raw Made Easy, and Everyday Raw Detox. Both books have a lot of good info, and recipes. Since I am eating Paleo, there are a few things that I won't eat, like quinoa.

I am on day two now, and the first day was really hard. My husband and I had to go out for a birthday dinner, and I just watched people eat sushi, while I ate lettuce. I think if you want to do this challenge, you really need to prep for it. I stocked up on all kinds of fruits, and veggies at Wegman's.

For all you vegans, and raw eating foodies, I have a lot of respect for you!

  1. Wow wow wow! I don't know that I could do a whole 21 days either, 7 sounds do able. How did you feel at the end of the week? Were there any noticeable differences in terms of how you felt with energy etc?

    1. I wouldn't do it again. I felt sluggish the first few days. As soon as I started eating regular paleo foods again, I gained all the weight back. I have a lot of respect for people that eat like this daily!
