what's a typical eating day for a raw vegan? i've been looking into making the switch and am nervous that if i make the transition all on my own, i'll miss out on some important nutrients, just out of pure ignorance.

    Today, I eat:
    3-4 pieces in total, of maximum 3 different whole fruits in the morning (6h)
    4-5 pieces in total, of maximum 3 different whole fruits at noon
    A handful of nuts somewhere during the day, at least 1h away from my 2 fruit meals above (sometimes processed in a house made dessert with the vitamix, together with typically dates)
    A salad with every whole vegetable I like in the evening
    Every 2 days also a raw soup if it is cold

    I eat mostly raw, this is a typical day:
    Breakfast: Chia oat pudding made with date-sweetened home made almond milk with fresh fruit on top or a green smoothie with pea protein if i'm in a rush. Sometimes I'll drink a juice, too.
    Lunch: A salad topped with hemp seed, quinoa, avocado, carrot shreds, nuts, and topped with a home made dressing
    Snacks; Dehydrated banana or mango, kale chips, or a piece of fruit
    Dinner: Salad, usually a raw soup, and a main meal like a rice (only cooked thing usually) bowl topped with raw toppings. I'll make raw cookies, brownies, or banana nice cream for dessert.

    I'd suggest cookbooks by Judita Wignall to start. Her two most recent books are more kind to vegans who won't have a dehydrator, etc. The beginning of each book go over the basics of raw food and some food prep tips, etc.

    I hope this helps! Good luck!

    Various perceptions belovv; think of it like a vira that is very healing in nature, though a healthy diet maintains the mutational path of the DNA string and epigenomical situation:

    Try not getting stupid ideas like "one can get [fat]/large around the stomach even as a ravv vegan ..".

    Yesterday; 500g of nuts and raisings, rubarba stick (tasted a bit too sour), celery, carrots, tomatoes.

    Then also some bread at the end of the day, dumpsterdive.
    Oh, I did fail in going to the "health store" and ended up buying a piece of bread that vvas going to be throvvn out, as I vvanted to ask him to get 3 ravv (these ball shaped things) from this vegan bakery. The bread though, eco through and through. Ended up failing on sugar though seemingly I have not much issue quarantining this and am getting back up, strangely sustainable.

    Forgot to mention the tahin.

    Most of the nonbread vvas not labeled and ?unlikely? eco/compassionately/caringly grovvn.

    Failing a bit, pointing at a transitioning of sorts. Though from green markets and in this fight to not eat and buy from supermarkets.

    I am extremely healthy, have quite a lot of freedom and am healing more than simply vvell --> cannot even describe it vvith broad respect for perception except as I add this.

    Life gets a lot more fun, enjoyable, strange, messed up and a hint: be around other ravv vegans and dont end up "kept" like me in some kind of like fear of escaping or getting avvay and not being a source of health for the doing and making of specific labor. Regardless of validity of this segment, likely something to it.
