Pre-Planning Raw Food Menu - Motivation Trick To Stay Raw
Posted Jan 11 2009 5:31pm
If you're struggling to add more Raw to your life or you're having some challenges sticking with it, here is a tip that can really help! Have your menu totally planned out for the daybeforeyou start your day. By listing everything you're going to eat, you give yourself something to really look forward to, as well as a reason to stick to it. After all, it's already planned out - much of the work is already done!
In the past, I've written about the important role a food journal can be. But, this kind of journal is a little different from what I'm mentioning above. A food journal is usually filled out after you eat. Some people fill it out after each meal and some people wait until the end of the day. I also keep a food journal of this sort, but I do it for a different purpose (and, I don't do it all the time). This kind of tracking is useful for attaining certain goals, such as when I want to lose weight or when I get pregnant I will track my food intake to ensure I'm getting enough calories, nutrients and protein. Again, though, this kind of journal usually gets filled out as the day goes on. It's different from a "pre-planned day's menu" which can be a driving force for staying Raw and keeping motivated and excited to do so.
Therefore, while it's only 2am on Monday, I've written down the food I'll be enjoying. Today's menu is filled with DELICIOUS, high-energy, Raw vegan food. Oh, I can't wait!( See? I'm totally stoked about my food plan for the day and this will help keep me on track for sure! )
