So, we made it to Friday again! This month I’ve been sharing a photo round-up of one of the meal plans in Becoming Raw each week. The meal plans have been designed to meet all of your dietary reference intakes for vitamins and nutrients while maintaining the optimum balance of protein:fat:carbohydrates.
This particular menu was created with ease and portability in mind. So, I decided to test that theory on a busy weekday (full of meetings, commuting and training).
This menu was really easy to eat, although the amount of fibre is still fantastically high, I found that I was full throughout the day but never overstuffed. The tahini and nuts provide slightly greater calorie density, so you can actually eat a little less in quantity.
1650 calories, protein 11%, fat 25%, carbohydrate 64%
(This analysis includes currants, 1 banana and 1 cup of corn not included above)

I’ve been behind with the updates this week.
Wednesday was a 10 km run at at 4:45 pace (that’s per km people) after work
Thursday was a 6 km morning run (5:30 am)
Tonight I did this video before meeting up with friends for dinner.
Tomorrow I will be posting the Mango Pie recipe you requested.
On Sunday, Heathy will be announcing the winner of her Moon Pie Challenge. I hope my entry receives at least an honourable mention (keep your fingers crossed). All of the entries are beautiful and have such creative flavour variations.
If you’re a beet fan and you have some time this weekend then I suggest you join in the SOS Kitchen Challenge hosted by Ricki and Kim. Ricki has been actively advocating for a spot on the Ellen show, so if you get involved you can say, I knew her when she was hosting beet-based blog challenges and look at her now.
Do you have any interesting weekend plans?
