Raw Food Diet Info

The raw food vegan diet is a continuous lifestyle which is how we were always meant to live. This diet consists of organic uncooked, unprocessed vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Cooked foods destroy important enzymes that allow the body to digest and assimilate the vitamins and minerals from foods. Without these enzymes, your body becomes toxic because every area of your body needs them. The consequence often results in disease, among other problems. Raw foods keep your immune system healthy and help heal disease. Numerous people cure their illnesses with just eating a 100% raw food diet alone. Your stomach often decreases to the appropriate weight or will continue to maintain it.

It’s important to consume only organically grown produce because conventional produce is grown with pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, and other chemicals that are toxic to your body. Organic foods are grown without these harmful substances, taste better, and are more nutritious. While you don’t have to eat all organic to be raw, it is recommended to maintain the most optimum health, the main purpose of implementing this diet in the first place.

Raw Is Not About Deprivation

People that aren’t raw believe they couldn’t stop eating SAD (Standard American Diet) foods because they think they’d be missing out. Yet it’s quite the opposite. Some foods I enjoy raw that are similar to SAD: lasagna, tacos, sushi, cheese, hummus, cereal, quiche, pasta, pizza, ice cream, fudge, truffles. Not only do I get to eat these foods & love them way more than when I was SAD, but every single bite is healthy. Besides all the “gourmet” foods, I enjoy simple foods more than ever like avocado, cherries, or corn straight off the cob. I also eat foods I never even liked before because they taste way better raw. And I’ve discovered new-to-me foods. Being raw is one gigantic adventure! Raw is not like all the diets out there where you are constantly deprived. It’s about a new lifestyle that becomes fun and a part of who you are. It’s about being as healthy as you can be mentally and physically. There’s a great saying in the raw world, “Nothing cooked tastes as good as raw feels”.

Motto: K.I.S.S. (Keep It Super Simple)

One theme that is consistent in my life and how I advise others, is to keep the raw diet very simple. Especially when you’re first becoming raw. Also, don’t impose all sorts of restrictions if you’re struggling to stay raw. Try to stick with “as long as it’s raw” and then later you can modify your diet if necessary. Use very simple recipes. Always have gourmet raw or snacks on hand for times you may need it. If you don’t like or have time to prepare much, either keep it extremely simple or buy pre-made food from various sources. Always bring food in coolers with you everywhere. Keep a raw bar/snack in your purse or pocket for emergencies.

For myself, I have never been interested in cooking or preparing meals. This meant that I needed to keep raw as simple as I could so I would stick to it. All meals create use few ingredients and take 10 minutes maximum to prepare (usually 5 minutes). This works very well for me. My diet mainly consists of smoothies, soups, and salads, with various other things I rotate such as wraps, fruit puddings, zucchini pasta, etc. I try to keep things interesting as much as I can. I will purchase ready-made food from various sources as necessary. Though the longer I’m raw, the less I do this. Most important of all is to keep it fun. I have to say being raw is way more enjoyable because I know that every bite I eat is healthy. I even enjoy making food more.
