What I Eat in a Day On a Raw Till 4 High Carb Low Fat Vegan Lifestyle to Stay Energetic and Skinny

Hello Maniacs!
I’m very excited about my new video. I always wanted to do a what I eat in a day video for you guys, but I’m such a lazy mofo, only since I started writing my recipe ebook I got my recipes to look less of a mess. I am a complete slob and nothing in the process of making my food looks aesthetic. but I really wanted to make a video showing what I eat in a typical day, the amounts of food and the calories I eat on this raw till 4, high carb, low fat, vegan lifestyle. especially now because I’ll be in Thailand next week and I won’t have all the usual fruits that you can get anywhere, and I probably won’t be able to cook for myself for awhile.
This is what I ate on Tuesday 111114, which was actually my 26th birthday 🙂
Morning:
1 liter of water
Breakfast: Fruit salad

500g crimson grapes = 345 kcal
300g pomegranates = 249 kcal
4 kiwis = 168 kcal
1 cup orange juice = 111 kcal
Total of 873 calories

Lunch: 1 liter green smoothie

7 bananas [3 frozen] = 687 kcal
5 dates = 332 kcal
5 lettuce leaves = 23 kcal
1 cup mint = 17 kcal
Total of 1060 calories
Snack: 3 bananas
Total of 315 calories

Dinner: Crispy potato wedges with guacamole dip 
1 kg potatoes = 770 kcal
0.5 avocado = 160 kcal
1 tomato = 22 kcal
1 spring onion = 4 kcal
lemon juice
1 spoon of chili flakes

Total of 957 calories

 All in all, total of 3205 calories, 54g of protein, 757g of carbs, 26g of fat.

Calorie breakdown = 87/5/7

As you can see I get plenty of protein, it’s actually more than 0.8g of protein per kg of my body weight. I also get all the vitamins and mineral I need, and I can be sure they are being absorbed well because I don’t eat stuff like salt, caffein, and other things that can harm the assimilation of micronutrients in our bodies.
Even though I eat a lot, I don’t get fat and I’m even losing body fat and getting leaner. my energy all day was up the roof, only before my 3 bananas snack I got very hungry and I needed my fix. I wasn’t really active that day, went for a slow walk in the mountains and met a dear friend of mine. but nothing I would classify as exercise. when I do exercise I will eat more than this.

This is a very typical day for me. I usually have at least one smoothie cause it make smashing in the calories fairly easy, and my other fruit meal a fruit salad or a mono fruit meal. right now my favorites are persimmons and cherimoya <3 I usually have 2 big meals and 1 small snack and a 500-1000cal dinner like I had today, or on busy days I’ll have 2-4 huge fruit meals and a 500-1000cal dinner.

I hope you guys enjoyed seeing what I eat in a day, I’ll definitely make more of these videos when I’ll binge on tropical fruits in Thailand.

Minimalist Traveling In Israel

Well
hello there Maniacs!
It’s
about the time I’m almost done with my exams and I have more free
time to do my thing, so I though I might as well use it wisely and
take a few days to go up to northern Israel and see our beautiful
country…
I
just came back from 3 days in Golan heights, followed by another
unplanned 1 day in tlv and 3 days in dor beach. I wanted to go as
minimalistic as I can, to see how I manage and as a small
preparation to my trip to Thailand and other frutilicious tropical
heavenly countries 🙂
Since
I heard the term minimalism, I got hooked on the idea. I started
getting rid of shit clothes I was hoarding for years and other
things, but I kept on buying more shit I didnt need nor use, and I
still had immense amounts of clutter all over my house, car and life.
In the last few months I started to really take my minimalist journey
to the next level and really get rid of things I didnt need. I sold
so many things and even had a “garage” roof sale with my friends.
I will write about it in the future, so stay tuned if you’re
interested. Anyway, I decluttered my house quite a bit, and really
started to take into consideration what I need in life and I would
definitely want to experiment with that when I go traveling in asia
in the next months. I though I would see how it goes in the trip to
the north as well.
Whats
in my bag?
1
long leggings
1vegan
shorts
2
tanks
4
pairs of undies
1
long hoodie [should’ve brought something warmer]
flip
flops
minimalistic
running shoes for hiking
phone
charger
credit
card, Bus card and id
some
cash [but no wallet! So proud of myself cause I usually go about with
a big ass wallet]
key
[only the one to my house]
mp3
player
ear
plugs
toothbrush
baking
soda [to use as shampoo, deodorant and toothpaste. Didn’t use it
once!]
box
of dates and 2.5 kg of peaches.
1.5
liter water bottle
Well,
at the first few days I didn’t really mind not changing clothes,
and I even washed 1 pair of panties in the shower, but I had worn one
tank in a hike an as I was gathering prickly pear or whatever name
your country calls this exquisite fruit, I had all the spikes fly
with the wind straight to my face, neck and shirt. So I wasn’t
wearing it ever since and didn’t even think of washing it with all
the spikes stinging me on the way 😐 so turns out I wore the other
tank for a long time and I got really tired of it when I came back o
tlv and was about to head out to dor beach. I almost borrowed a
friends shirt but at the end I gave up cause I already have too many
things and I just starting to give a fuck.
Seriously,
when I was out and about, having fun, out in nature and with friends,
I really couldn’t care less how I looked. At the beach I wore just
a sports bra and panties, and some of the time I was topless, and I
was just fine. People didn’t even notice I wasnt wearing a “proper”
bathing suite, and if they did? I don’t care. I’m not here to
entertain anyone or to look good for someone else.
But
enough about material objects. I had a really good time all in all. I
was really surprised that the north was this big and beautiful, and
had so much nature going around! Just driving through the area you’d
see fig trees and prickly pears, and the occasional spring here and
there..
but
besides that, it was a good experience for me to trust the world and
the people and nature in general, to provide me with food, and a
place to sleep. Though it didn’t really help with saving the battery
in my phone…
I
have to admit I was a little scared before going, as I didnt know if
I took enough things, and I was especially worried about the food. I
didn’t know where I could get good fruits [as I am doing the raw till
4 lifestyle now], and because the fruit quality these days is so low
and not satisfying, and I’m used to knowing what I’m eating and where
I’m buying it and how ripe it is. But up north, I managed quite good.

As
I got there we went to a supermarket to but some food. The fruit was
as expected inedible, so I bought pasta and some pasteurized orange
juice. The day after we went to an apple plantation, and picked some
nice apples. There was also a plum, grapes and nectarines plantation
so I picked some more 🙂 after that we went for a hike in Gilabon
wadi, where we saw some more food, and after that we found a big ass
fig tree I took the liberty to strip down of edible fruits 🙂

The
day after I wasn’t feeling all too well, I was really tired and
exhausted, and I rested the whole day. When it was evening I started
getting bored and wanted to do something, but I also started feeling
choked and cramped up in a far out location and I really wanted to
get the hell out. I was staying at a place with only 2 buses a day,
and within seconds I made up my mind to pack my shit, get out and
look for a bus station, when the bust was about to arrive In ten
minutes. Sounds silly and impulsive, but that simple act really
helped me feel in control and gain back my self confidence.
Sadly,
or not sadly but very tiring, it took me about 6 hours to get to tel
aviv, when I was headed for jerusalem. I missed the last bus and I
was starving by the time I got to tel aviv. That’s the problem with
this lifestyle, when you are undercarbed, you start being miserable.
I was thinking about food the whole way back! I bought some stir
fried rice with no oil and salt in tlv and stayed at a friends house.
It is pretty amazing eh? That you could just hop from one place to
another, and get by so easily in this world. It was really great to
let go of my frick-controlish-part for a bit, and just rely on things
to be ok.

After
I stayed the night in tlv I was supposed to go back to jlm and pack
my bathing suit, get more fruits, a sleeping bag, change my stinkin’
clothes and go back to tlv and head out to Dor beach from there, but
then I was like… do I really need all this hassle just for a
stinking bathing suite? Change of clothes? I can just borrow a
sleeping bag from a friend and but fruits anywhere! And I wouldn’t
need to carry them all the way from jlm.. besides, if I really wanted
to, I could just buy a new swim suite and it would cost me less time
and money than going back and forth.. that really put things into
perspective. I had a great time in tlv with Ggali my eternal love!
And I also arranged to meet a fellow rawtill4-er, Ginat the fruitbat!
After
this hot and amazing day in tlv, I went with Ron, a friend I met over
at Midburn, to dor beach for a big ass camping thing his friends
family organizes every year! It was really amazing to camp out on the
beach and chill and do nothing. We arrived at night, and I was soooo
tired already, we stayed for a bit in the bonfire and then I went to
sleep. The day after I was just chilling, eating fruits, tanning
topless, hooping, and on the next day, I did much of the same but
started to get to know the people around me better, and feel more
comfortable. I also took a long walk on the beach hoping to find new adventures, and even though I didn’t meet lots of interesting new people, I did get to a nice little camp that played music and I did my own party on the rocks and danced myself away with the waves..
I
guess there’s no way around it. It takes me a while to feel
comfortable around people and I do get a bit anxious in social
situations. That’s why I prefer to be by myself and fend for myself
whenever necessary. I’m afraid of being judged in a certain way and
I try to read the atmosphere a bit before I open up .I probably come
up as a shy and quiet person or maybe even an antisocial lone wolf
sometimes. I have it a lot easier on one-on-ones.
I
was even more worried about the food before we went to the beach. I
didnt have a clue what food they’re going to have over there, if
they’d have any fruits, but since I was already relying on the world
for a few days already, I just let it be. Right before we took off I
bought some grapes and nectarines, baby corn and dates, and I did
finish up all my food before we headed back home, so I ended up
eating some bread with tahini. After I got home I was still out of
food so I had some rice cakes with tahini and a few veggies. I felt
ok when having it, but this morning I woke up with a fever and with
pain all over my body. It could be the food but I have a feeling it’s
that massive sunburn I got that’s fucking me up.
I’m
happy I got out of my comfort zone and started to experience new
things, and I’m grateful not to have my studies in the way all the
time. Can’t wait to be really over with it.
This
little trip really got me interested in living in a moshav or kibbutz
for a bit, and I made up my mind to go on a gathering trip again next
week, where you walk around in a group for 5 days an eat only what
you forage. I was at a foraging trip a few months back, but I feel
like this time I could have a better experience.

To
sum it up, I had a blast. But it is good to be home, take a nice NOT
hot shower for my aching skin, and have a change of clothes.

MIDBURN 2014

Hey
Maniacs! 
I
just came back from an AMAZING experience in every way possible. I
spent 5 days in the Negev desert in the Midburn festival – the
Israeli Burning Man. I don’t quite know how to even start
expressing what I’ve been through, but I just can’t sleep and can’t
get the playa out of my head.

At
the first day I was so anxious to get there, I was driving and
picking up some people who were supposed to come, and I had to carry
so much shit with me, cause I’m doing the raw till 4 diet now [more on that on a different post]. I
brought 5 kilos of dates, 4 watermelons, ton of bananas, veggies and
stuff to cook for my cooked dinner. I brought other fruits bet they went
bad so fast and filled my car with such a stench!
So anyway, I
came to the playa by myself. No friends, no camp, no nothing. Radical
self reliance in its best. At first it was because non of my friends
wanted to come, but in the end I wanted to go alone and put myself
out there, outside my comfort zone, even though in some ways being
alone is exactly my comfort spot.

Iv’e been to other
festivals in which I brought food to cook and bread and peanut butter
and all those festival foods, and I have to say that preparing the
fruit and eating it was so much easier and funner than eating a
peanut butter sandwich with canned corn and half raw pasta. Moreover,
it was so satisfying and filling, gave me a TON of energy to dance
and walk around, and saved me so much time. When everyone else were
cooking in their camps, I would eat half a watermelon and go dance
right after without being too heavy to need to friggin rest. Besides,
fruits have so much water content, I didn’t get dehydrated once! In
comparison to a cooked lunch you eat in the heat, that takes water
from your body to digest and doesn’t add its own water. So no wander
people need rest after such a meal, and a lot more water.

I picked up a few hitchhikers from jerusalem, one of them is Shawn Saleme, who writes also for the Visual News blog! Such a chilled and down to earth person, very happy I met him. I put up my tent with the hitchhikers at our own camp, and went out to explorer.

Me, Shawn, and the hitchhikers. the car was packed!!!

The playa was
unbelievable. The art installations were incredible. The man, which
was a man and woman installation combined, was very impressive, but my favorite was grampa.
So beautiful and well build, just look at the pictures. The person
who made the installation was as expected – very nice and friendly.
I couldn’t find more about him online though. He was excited to
burn it, but in the end granny stayed foot, probably had a change of
heart. Anyway his name is Faluja. If you find anything bout him let
me know!

On
Friday the atmosphere in the playa was very special to me. To sun was
going down, and the desert lit up with such beautiful colors… it
really felt like the end of the festival. Me and some new
friend were sitting and looking at the sunset and I came down in
tears. I felt like something inside of me died. A feeling that was
immensely increased when the man was burned. As the sun went right
behind those desert mountains and the darkness started creeping, I
made up my mind to create a life for myself that I wouldn’t be sad
to come back to after a festival.

The sunset on friday

Now
that’s a very controversial thing for me to say, because I’m so used
to just surviving, that being happy sometimes sounds like bad word to me.
I always had some disrespect towards those who are happy, or at least
claim to be. They look so naive, or simple minded, even stupid to me.
They live in denial, believe in god, release all responsibilities
from them, and mainly, haven’t had a life even close to what shit
I’ve been through. I’m so used to life being this shit load of crap
just piling on top of other crap layers that hadn’t composted yet.
Shit on top of shit on top of shit. But life on the playa felt so
damn good. Chillin at day, or
dancing, eating fuck loads of fresh fruit, talking to people, dress
up in funny costumes, enjoying nature and the desert, I mean, life
definitely looked like this once. No money, gifting, community life,
fuck I wanna go back.

After they burned the temple, I was a friggin mess. It was
sunrise, complete silence on the playa, such a huge difference
between burning the man and the temple. I wasn’t as sad as I was when
burning the man but it wore me down and eventually I found myself
walking around camps, just wishing I could meet anyone to keep me company.
I felt such an urge and it was terrifying, to think that I NEED someone,
and not just rely on myself, but I guess that’s the difference
between surviving and living, eh?
I went to some camp and this wonderful guy immediately gave me such a warm hug. I asked if I could crash on the couch, cause I couldn’t just
start a conversation. I was crashing on the couch, and this other guy
from the camp brought another couch so I would have room for my feet.
I know it wasn’t something special for him, but I was so fucking
grateful for him and for what he did, I started crying non stop for
hours.

The temple and the man

Why? Why would anyone help me? Moreover, why don’t they hurt me?
I’m so accustomed to people who talk shit to me, take advantage of
me, use me and hurt me, and this guy helps me out with such a small
and unnoticeable gesture? I was dumbfounded.

I wanted to come up to him and hug him and thank him and I don’t
know what, but I wasn’t able to. I just couldn’t. [so for the super slim chance your’e reading this – I FUCKING LOVE YOU MAN!]

I’m still digesting and trying to comprehend this whole thing, and
the burning man experience in general, but no doubt, this burn was a
thing ill never forget. After crying my eyes out, I went to the granny installation for a bit, just to have some time with this awesome peice of art. as I was appreciating that glorious installation thing, I got this incredible urge to built and create things, to make something of my own, to just do. I just hope I won’t lose this energy to the mundane life I’m living right now..

grandpa♥

Well, to sum it up, I met and befriended so many awesome people! I
still have my social skills apparently 🙂 I danced so much, so long,
so happily, dressed or fucking topless, with shoes or barefoot on
the boiling desert sand. I even got blisters from the hot sand, and I
got a bad sunburn. I’m so happy. And sad. Fuck. Look at the pictures
already, would ya?!

The playa

DUST, see it, breat it, eat it, drink it, dust every-fucking-where
