What I ate in a Day | Raw Vegan | Ramadan Edition | Part 1
Ramadan. A month. That’s 30 days (or 29, depends on the moon).
From the title, you’ve figured what this series is going to be about. Every five days, I will be releasing a post on what I’ve eaten the 5 days, so, by the end of the month, we will have 30 days of a sample meal plan kind of thing. There will be six parts, and here goes part one.
Hope this inspires peeps and encourages to make better food choices, especially if you’ve been eating crap all along (I apologise, but I am brutally honest when it comes to these topics, so either you feel hurt, or make changes. There’s no other way round it).
Suhoor (breakfast, pre-dawn meal), a smoothie with two bananas, a handful of frozen raspberries and some water. 3 AM.
Iftaar (opening the fast meal), one date, followed by a fruit salad with soaked basil seeds (was out so only took along what I could comfortably carry). Got back home and had some grapes and an avocado. 6:15 PM.
Dinner, was not hungry at all, but was quite thirsty, so had the juice of half a huge watermelon, with lemon juice. This was the best meal of the day!! 11 PM
Successfully got in two entire litres of water, which definitely is an achievement given the number of non fasting hours.
Suhoor, smoothie with three bananas, a handful each of raspberries and blueberries with some water. Damn, the color on this one was gorgeous! 3 AM.
Iftaar, three dates, fruit salad, watermelon and mango. 6:15 PM
Dinner, a small salad, out, around 7:30 PM, then at 10:30 PM, made and enjoyed a spicy Guac salad (Avocado, lemon juice, cucumber, coriander, tomato, green chutney). Had a couple of dates after.
Water, 2L in.
Suhoor, smoothie with 3 bananas, handful blueberries, water.
Iftaar, two dates, one fig, fruit salad with soaked basil seeds, a litre of watermelon juice.
Dinner, guac (Avocado, lemon juice, tomato, coriander, green chutney) in lettuce, drizzled tahini on top.
Water, 2L again. Could have done 3 if not for the litre of watermelon juice!
Suhoor, smoothie with one orange, 3 bananas, handful of blueberries, water. (Really wanted to have fresh orange juice but would have to wake up at 2 AM for that -_-)
Iftaar, two dates, fruit salad+soaked basil seeds, as usual, along with lots of cut up watermelon.
Dinner, zoodles in tomato sauce (recipe here) followed by a couple of dates. Also had 1500 mg spirulina.
2.5L water in. Wohoo, progress, finally!!
Suhoor, a litre of fresh citrus juice (oranges and grapefruit). Took me just five minutes to juice, I overestimated time for nothing!
Iftaar, three dates, one fig, fruit salad+soaked basil seeds.
Dinner, a litre of watermelon juice followed by a tiny salad with one tomato, one avocado, some tahini, dry oregano, black pepper, sumac and green chutney.
2L water in. Would have been four, if not for the litre each of watermelon and orange juices!
Its been five days already! So quick!
Stay tuned for Part 2, with what I’ve eaten for the next five days!
