The following video shows you everything I ate yesterday. This is my first week in Korčula and it looks like bananas will be my staple. I hope this video and my Cronometer food diary (posted below) can serve as a guide if you are interested in the high carb low fat lifestyle or raw lifestyle. This will give you some idea about what meals are like.
When looking at my food diary, keep in mind:
- My calorie intake is never set in stone. If I feel like I need to eat more, I simply eat more and never restrict calories.
- My macronutrient ratio is set to LFRV (low fat raw vegan) within Cronometer. My calorie summary reflects percentages based on the 80/10/10 ratio. I aim to eat at least 80% of my calories from carbs, at most 10% from protein and at most 10% from fat.
- Lately, I’ve been walking into town every other day which ends up being around 5.5 miles round trip. My daily average is 3.3 miles.
- Breakfast: 5 oranges
- Lunch: 6 bananas
- Snack: 5 kiwis
- Dinner: 6 more bananas!
My macronutrient ratio:
- 91.8% of my calories came from carbohydrates
- 4.8% from protein
- 3.4% from fat
Bananas have been my staple lately because sadly, watermelon season is ending and I can’t get any watermelon where I’m staying. That being said, my landlord and her parents DID deliver a watermelon to me the other day, and oh my goddess it is absolutely delicious! This is probably the last watermelon I’ll enjoy until I’m in Thailand in December. I’m savouring every bite!
I was truly living the dream in Split, eating watermelon all day every day. Watermelon is one of my favourite foods (if you couldn’t tell) so I’m sad to see it go. Summer is my favourite time of year because of all the sweet, juicy fruits available. As we go into winter, my diet will consist of bananas, apples, pears, grapes, and citrus, so at least I have that to look forward to!
Bananas are an excellent staple year-round because their taste and quality remain reliable no matter the time of year. They’re easy to find since most food shops stock them. If at any point I’m struggling to find fruit as I’m travelling, I always resort to several bunches of bananas because I know they will be tasty and filling. I’m not crazy about bananas but I eat them when I can’t find my favourite juicy fruits.
What are your favourite fruits?
Do you prefer one season over another?
