What I ate today - Day 2

Breakfast - blackberry smoothie bowl

I had the most amazing and delicious smoothie bowl this morning! Banana, blackberry and almond milk smoothie topped with buckwheat, mint leafs, blackberries and dragon fruit balls!

For lunch I made a really simple salad with two types of sprouts, green leafs, avocado, cucumber and raw vegan kimchi! To coat my salad I made a delicious ginger miso dressing that literally took 2 minutes to make! The kimchi is the only thing that I had pre made, and kimchi takes some time since you need to let it ferment. On the other hand, you can just make a batch and have it ready at all times, it will last for weeks in the fridge, it really spices up and gives delicious flavors to even the most boring salads! And oh, did I mention, it's actually great for your health!

As you can tell from the pictures, I'm not suffering or starving on this raw food diet... On the contrary, I'm actually feeling great and even though it's just been two day of only raw foods I'm already starting to feel how my body is a bit lighter and I have much more energy... What I love about raw food is that you really feel fueled after a meal. Eating raw doesn't have to be complicated at all... I would say that I spent about 15-20 minutes on making my breakfast meal, 20 minutes on my lunch and 30 minutes on my dinner.
