Life update

I have been in Turkey for 3 weeks. I am now transitioning into a raw vegan diet. I am doing it for the animals and the environment, but also for health reasons. I am 90 kg at 5 ft 6, so that puts me in the obese category. I obviously want to lose weight.

I usually start my day with some dates or two bananas. Then I go out for exercise. When I come home I make myself a smoothie, and I also make juice with my juicer. I have stopped drinking alcohol completely, and I also want to quit caffeine.

I really like mangoes, and I have maybe 3 big mangoes for dinner, and some bananas as well. Then I eat fruit for the rest of the day, and I like pears, apples and nectarines.

If I feel hungry before bed time, I eat two bananas. One tip I can give to people in Norway who are fruitarians is to go grocery shopping early on Mondays. This is the time when they throw away old fruit and replace them with new ones, like green bananas. The old fruit is ripe, and there is nothing wrong with them. If you ask politely, you can have this fruit for a cheap price and I have also experienced getting them for free.

Bananas with brown spots are great for smoothies. I am also enjoying all the juicy big dates I brought from Turkey. This is the smoothie I made today. You need:

10-15 pitted dates

1 liter of water (or how much you want)

peppermint drops (one drop is usually enough)

3 table poons of coconut sugar

Blend it up and enjoy the rush! With the peppermint drops you will get a really good, fresh breath too, so that is great.
