winter food

what do you eat (& do) to keep yourself warm on days with -10° celcius or less? up to last week i felt like eating things like avocado, coconut & sweet potato (fat & carbs) to keep my body warm. a few days ago i found that even at this chilliness i feel better on eating fruits & greens. low fat.

this is what i had today:

  • 1,5 ananas (not at once, of course 😉 )
  • about 200g miner’s lettuce, mizuna & other salad
  • 2 small persimmon
  • 1 medjool date
  • 1 plantain
  • 6 leaves of savoy cabbage
  • 1 apple
  • 1 carob bean
  • about 7 BIG leaves of curly kale
  • 2 oranges
  • about 30-40 big blackberry leaves

since i am somewhat inspired by “green for life” from victoria boutenko which i just have read, part of the greens had been blended: plantain with savoy cabbage turned out to be really yummy! but i still prefer to eat the things as they are … the best meal today was eating plantain & cabbage in the sun in front of our house 🙂

anyway, what really helps to keep me warm isn’t food but exercise. move! i do 3 to 4 small workouts a day, 5 to 20 minutes each, on the stepper or doing sit-ups, pushups, stretching or something.

    Is that your usual food intake? Don’t you eat any fat on usual days? Like, what and how much fat do you eat in a week? I am just curious how and why raw foodists eat raw like they do, because there is not “the” raw foodist. I usually have 1 meal fruit and greens, 1 meal veggies and 1 meal veggies / greens / fat a day. For me, it is healthiest to eat more veggies/greens than fruit or fat.

    this varies …i do eat basically greens & fruit. most days i eat some fat – 1/2 or 1 avocado or a handfull of ripe coconut. but lately i don’t feel appetite for it. i only eat very few veggies but really lots of greens! i love greens & i my body really needs it! i eat like i do because i’m doing well that way 🙂

    Sorry, I did not read the text above the list. BTW, when I say “veggies” that often includes greens. In general, what fat sources do you eat? Nuts, avocado, seeds, coconut, olives,…? Any other? my main fat sources are seeds and cold pressed oils, but I also sometimes eat nuts, avos, olives.

    as i wrote above … avocado or coconut. sometimes almonds, seeds or nuts, but not very often. i like safus but eat them only about 2 times a year.
