What Do Healthy Raw Fooders Eat In A Typical Day?

By Trevor Justice, Owner/Director

To show our students what real health experts eat, I asked eight chefs and authors to log what they ate during a typical day. I did the same. Then I published all eight food journals in Lesson 25 of The Vegan Mastery Program. I’m reprinting three of them here.

Chef Dina Knight is a certified Raw and Living Foods Chef and Instructor from the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. She's co-founder and executive chef of Greenivore Inc., and, where she and her team prepare delicious organic uncooked vegan fare for celebrities.

Elaina Love is a Chef/Instructor at the renowned Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. She eats primarily raw vegan food. .

Dina Knight's 1-Day Food Journal

: Big 24-32 ounce Green Smoothie or Green juice, sometimes both, with chia seeds and spirulina.

Lunch: Sprout salad with mixed veggies and spicy spirulina dressing and sauerkraut. OR: Mixed marinated veggie taco and/or portabella fajita taco on romaine lettuce.

: chia pudding with chocolate. OR:mixed fruit/granola with hempseed/cashew or tahini milk.

: Sea Vegetables with marinated kale and steamed quinoa with cashew, tamari, sesame, coconut sauce. OR: sprouts, red bell pepper, tomatoes, cashew cheese, cilantro, spinach, avocado and dulse on raw onion bread.

Dina says "Some days I'm hungrier than others, so it just depends on what I'm doing… Some days I do more blended foods if I'm really busy and just need functional food. I always recommend lots of greens and sea veggies for high mineral/vitamin content."

Elaina Love’s 1-Day Food Journal

Breakfast: Green juice consisting of 1 head celery, 2 large cucumbers, 5 leaves of kale, 1 apple and the juice of 1 lemon.

Dinner: Cooked quinoa (about 1-2 cups) with steamed broccoli drizzled with pumpkin seed, olive or hemp seed oil sprinkled with dulse flakes, onion powder, Himalayan salt crystals. Topped with 1/2 chopped avocado and chopped cherry tomatoes over a bed of slivered kale leaves or Spring Mix.

: Handful of raw Brazil Nuts, OR an orange OR dehydrated raw, vegan buckwheat crackers OR Kale Chips OR Chia Pudding (see my website).

Night time snack

Trevor Justice’s 1-Day Food Journal

: Green smoothie (1 banana, 3 rehydrated apricots, several leaves of kale, 1 cup of water).

Mid-morning meal: Chopped up acid fruit (such as strawberries, kiwis, or oranges) or subacid fruit (such as peaches or pears) with raw almond butter.

: Big salad with spinach, romaine lettuce, or red leaf lettuce, topped with sprouts, olives, and other veggies and guacamole (instead of regular dressing).

Snack: cacao shake. (1.5 cups almond milk, 2 Tbsp Xylitol, 1 Tbsp cacao, 2 tsp sunflower seeds, 1 Brazil nut)

: Raw corn chowder (from "The Raw Gourmet") with a side salad.

Night time snack
: chopped up acid fruit topped with tahini and coconut nectar. When I eat this, I eat it several hours after dinner.

Throughout the day, I drink green tea, herbal Chai, or lemonade sweetened with Xylitol or coconut nectar. Several times a week, I get a 16 ounce green juice from the local juice bar. It is primarily cucumber, celery, chard, and kale. But I ask for 1-2 carrots to help offset the bitterness of the kale.

As a Mastery Program student, you’ll get access to the rest of our Sample Daily Menus lesson, plus a 1-hour Q&A call on the topic. And this is just one of the 50 weekly lessons you’ll receive!

“As a recipe book author and 30-year teacher of macrobiotics, vegan and live foods preparation classes, I found the Vegan Mastery Program to be very comprehensive. The expert Q&A calls were particularly useful. And Dr. Klaper is exceptionally knowledgeable and easy to listen to. Considering how much I've gotten, you definitely undercharge.”

Why remain vulnerable to vitamin or mineral deficiencies when you can find out exactly how to eat and absorb enough calcium, iron, Omega 3s, and Vitamins A, B12, and D?

Just one oversight or deficiency -- if ignored for too long -- can leave you vulnerable to disease, and potentially thousands in doctor or dental bills. Why take that gamble when you can thrive on a high raw vegan diet now and for the rest of your life?
