So I haven’t posted in awhile but I wanted to give a little update on my 80/10/10 lifestyle. Well, I didn’t do it 100% and am not now. I would do it for the whole day and then most nights would eat a cooked meal (and usually a bad one :( ). Anyways, I have a new resolution for new years (I know resolutions lol) but my goal is to be 75% or so raw 80/10/10, and the rest be low fat, low gluten, cooked vegan. I hope to be completely gluten free at home and added oil free as well. Also, as low as processed foods as possible. Diet as prescribed by people such as Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Esseltyne, Dr. McDougall…etc. That way I can still get the comfort of a cooked hot meal, still have it be low fat and high carb, and still be healthy.
I’m not like some raw fooders that think cooked food is the devil. I would like to sit down in the winter to a nice pot of hot soup. And by eating this way I can still have it be low fat, high carb and healthy.
I’ve still been keeping up with the green smoothies. I make a huge amount, 5 cups usually but they are around 1000-1200 calories each and have a whole head of green leaf or red leaf lettuce in them. Delicious!
B: Fruit salad (2 bananas, 2 dates, 4 figs, 1 nectarine, 1 pear) and Matcha mint ginger ale (2 cups water, 2 dates, juice of 1 lemon, 10 mint leaves, 1tsp matcha tea powder).
L: 5 bananas, 4 dates
S: Banana ice cream with 3 bananas
D: Salad: Pico di gallo (1lb tomatoes, 1 red onion, 3 golden kiwis, LOTS of chives, juice of 2 limes), served with 1lb romaine lettuce.
晚安人。 你们有好睡觉和明天好天。 多爱， 多幸福， 多和平。 再见。
Dinner: Salad with 1 head of romaine lettuce, 1lb cherry tomatoes, and 2 celery stalks
I also made chai latte using chai tea and homemade sesame milk (sesame seeds, water, vanilla, and dates).
*3 cups water
*1 tbsp fresh ginger
*juice of one lemon
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend.
Yeah, someone should totally make this. You’d play Sanzang, Friar Sand, Monkey, and Pig and do battles and level up with the three disciples. And you’d have quests and have to save Sanzang like in the novel. The end of the game is when you reach the Buddha in the Western Heaven.
I could totally see them making an rpg out of this with storyline from the book. It’s so perfect for it. And Monkey could learn skills and do his transformations in battle.
So during the week I do all low fat, high carb, raw vegan. 95-100% (I work in a kitchen so I taste a little of the food I make - it’s vegan though!). On the weekends however, I fall off the wagon because I’m hanging out with my girlfriend. I’m trying to get her into this and she’s really excited about it kinda but she says it’s way too much food to eat and when she tried it after she ate she was hungry like two hours later. I told her it’s because she didn’t eat enough for the meal and that whenever she is hungry she should eat. I don’t know…She’s vegan though and really into raw foods like me.
Yum this is so good. It is creamy like ice cream, delicious, and healthy for you!
Peel, chop, and freeze the bananas. Once frozen put them in the blender with the juice of 4 oranges. Blend until creamy. Enjoy. You can mix it up by adding other frozen fruit or other liquids.

I am taking a quick break from my Tumblr sabbatical for this small request: Mary Kristene Chapa, part of the teen lesbian couple that were shot in the head this past weekend in Texas does not have health insurance. Mary’s girlfriend Mollie was killed.
Mary is in critical condition. There is a fund to help her cover the cost of her medical bills. If you give a damn about LGBTQ rights in this country (or elsewhere for that matter), please consider making a donation like I did. A donation as small as the equivalent of a Starbucks latte could go a long way.
