Breakfast- a green smoothie: 6 large Navel oranges blended with 1 bunch dandelion greens

Snack- 4 medium sized bananas

Lunch- at Brasserie Ruhlmann: Tuna Tartar with avocado, large vegetable salad

Dinner- 2 pieces Love Force Rawganic Vegan Bread topped with Dr-Cow Cashew & Hemp Seeds Cheese, sliced avocado and Hawthorne Valley Plain Sauerkraut

I made a large multi-ingredient salad that I took to work with me to eat; I was really looking forward to eating it.  Unexpectedly I was called into a business lunch and for an instant I felt disappointed that I wouldn't get to eat the salad I had made.  As it turned out I was more than satisfied with my meal at Brasserie Ruhlmann.  When you stop and think about it, it is pretty cool that I had satisfying raw choices at the restaurant.  Salads keep well and I'll eat my home made one tomorrow.

Breakfast- 1 lb sliced cantaloupe and watermelon

Snack- 6 fresh Medjool dates

Lunch- large homemade salad: Romaine lettuce, Red Leaf lettuce, Frisee lettuce, sliced cherry tomatoes, chopped cucumbers, diced celery, One 1 1/2 oz box Sun-Maid raisins, 1/4 cup pecans

Dinner- one serving of Garden of Life Raw Meal replacement mixed with 16 oz fresh carrot juice from Jamba Juice

I was disappointed in the taste Garden of Life Raw Meal.  It was tolerable; not enjoyable.  When I was eyeing the large container in the store and deliberating on buying it the sales person suggested I buy a single serving package and try it first.  I'm very glad that I did that instead of buying the entire large container.

The Garden of Life website description the product is truthful, stating that it's "Naturally filling, satisfies hunger, provides energy...."  It does not state that it's delicious.  I would use it again if I was struggling to eat raw under very tight time constrictions and I guess that's what the product is intended for.  Again, from the Garden of Life website:  "RAW Meal naturally satisfies hunger and increases energy, making it great for those looking to manage their diet and looking for a convenient alternative to the pre-packaged or fast-food meals that dominate our on-the-go lifestyles."
