Starting a Raw Food Diet
"Helpful Tips on starting a Raw Food Diet and slowly changing to a raw food diet..."
Beginning a raw food diet is not difficult, the best results are usually obtained if you gradually combine more and more raw food recipes into your daily diet, rather than changing to a raw food diet overnight. The transition to raw diet can take weeks or months, what ever you're comfortable with.
Raw food diets are a great way to lose weight, and to lead a healthier more natural lifestyle. Most raw food diets are plant-based, and can include uncooked fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and seaweeds. Some raw food recipes contain cooked grains and legumes, but as a rule of thumb nothing is heated above 116 degrees Fahrenheit - beyond that temperature many food enzymes (biomolecules that increase the rate of chemical reactions that aid digestion and absorption of nutrients) are destroyed.
You will find fresh fish and poultry in many raw food diet recipes although some raw food dieters are pure vegans.
A typical Raw food diet ingredients list:
Fresh organically grown fruits and vegetables, fresh juices, dried fruits, seaweeds, herbs, sprouts, sprouted legumes, fish and poultry, sashimi, fish tartar, cold pressed oils, raw eggs, unpasteurized milk, yogurt and cheese.
How to source your raw food ingredients:
Of course growing your own organic fruits and vegetables can be satisfying, convenient, money saving, and provide peace of mind knowing exactly where your foods are coming from. However very few of us have the time or space to grow our own fruit and vegetable so a
Farmers’ Market is a good option. Be sure to ask if their produce is organic!
