Lunch: For housemate, I made potatoes stewed with tomatoes and peas with chives and basil and rosemary and parsley (from the garden). She loved it. For me, I didn't have much fruit lying around so it was up to the vegetables to fill me up. I've been wondering how you eat collard greens raw. You have to blend it. So I blended it up with some kale and tomatoes and garlic. it actually wasn't bad. I poured that over chopped okra, green pepper, celery, carrots, and kohlrabi. It was okay in small quantities. It took forever to eat with all the chewing. I only ate about 1/3 of my plate. Fortunately I had one peach left. I was full and didn't get hungry until the usual time at dinner. then I went grocery shopping, thankfully.
Dinner: 1/4 watermelon, grapes, mushrooms, a small pear (I didn't realize these were ripe at lunch or I could have had a feast), an orange, a handful of walnuts.
I'm thinking the healthy raw diet needs a green smoothie every day or a big salad. and then you can have a lot of fruit and some nuts. and you can learn how to make some stuff too which I'll figure out. I bought a zucchini today. That will be easy to chew and eat and I like the taste.
Exercise: I kicked butt today! We did sprints and it was about 90 degrees outside and I started at the end of the line like always, so people wouldn't have to pass me, and I passed everyone except one guy---I'm not sure who finished first because we took a different route on the last one. We did 12 x 50 yards, with 50 yard rest in between, 6 x 100 with 100 yard rest, 2 x 200 with 200 yard rest, and 1 x 400. It really wasn't that hard but the heat destroyed everyone but me. I got hot but it was no big deal. On a cooler day I probably would have been at the back of the pack as usual. I'm pretty sure I am the oldest one in the class, probably by 10-20 years over most people. ha. I also recovered quickly after each run--that's where I passed everyone was in the walking. I was ready to go after each walk was done. That's those cleared up arteries doing their job. That's why athletes can benefit from a healthy vegan diet.
