Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!


How does a raw vegan deal with taking their food to work?

✿   If you’re gone from 8am in the morning (or earlier) until 6 pm or later… What do you do?

✿   I have over an hour commute each way to work, taking buses and trains.

So I tried 4 different things.  Let’s see what you think...


1.   Fasting

✿   A day of fasting, led to a night of bingeing…

2.   Taking abundant smoothies (see video 2).

✿   Requires lifting a REALLY HEAVY wheelie bag up and down the Elevated train steps, and onto trains and busses, no thank you!  (Although I guess it's good Grand Canyon training prep!)

3.   Cheat day

✿   Not really a good idea.  Insta-hemmhorroids, etc.

4.   Banana Island in the daytime?

✿   This kind of worked.  I found it super convenient!  I brought 14 bananas and a smoothie.  It was nice to not have to bring anything home.

✿   It was hard to make it through ALL those bananas though.  By banana #11, I was gagging!

So maybe some combination of banana island and just 1-2 smoothies (not so heavy) would be the best for me.

How about you?  Do you work outside the home?  How do you handle being a raw foodie or a raw vegan at work?

Love n hugs!

Good ideas Lyric! I may try the dried fruit in the desk for backups!

It's very hard. No question about it it is simply not easy. In the summer that's fine but in the winter a little harder.

Nuts, fruits, salads, avocados, dates eaten with almonds it's (like a chewing gum), smoothies + chia seeds that becomes like a pudding, in the winter quinoa + raw veggies (I have tried sprouted quinoa but I don't like the taste)

and pray to be prepared every day not to fall into bad stuff.....

I have the same problem! I usually bring 5 bananas, bag of dates, a green drink, and a huge container of various fruits I cut up before leaving. Once in a while a huge salad in a very large container haha. But I always have dried fruits in my desk just in case that wasn't enough!
