  • 1. The KISS Method: Keep It Super Simple Raw foods have not been processed, cooked, or genetically engineered, and are free of pesticides/herbicides. Raw food is honest food – what you see is what you get. There are no hidden ingredients, fats or toxins – just fresh and pure live food. Fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, dried fruits, seeds and sprouted seeds, and natural sweeteners are all examples of raw, natural foods. It just takes a few minutes to prepare raw food for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Raw foods are as tasty as cooked or processed food, but in a healthier way. Some kitchen equipment like a food processor, blender, and a juicer is all that is needed. There are many methods for preparing raw foods. They are:  Soaking and sprouting – Soaking dissolves the enzyme inhibitors and helps in good digestion. The nutrient content will dramatically increase with this process of soaking and sprouting. Nuts are frequently soaked, and seeds are often soaked and then sprouted.  Dehydrating – This is the best method to store food. Dehydrating is the process of reducing the water content in the food. During the process, very low temperatures are used so nutrients are not lost. You need a dehydrator for this process.  Blending – Blending helps the digestive system to digest raw food easily and extract many micro nutrients abundant in plant foods. You will need a blender for this process.
  • 2.  Juicing – A juicer is necessary to make juices. Juices are quick in providing nutrients to the body. Nutrients from juices can be found in blood half an hour after consumption. Some healthy vegetables and fruits that make tasty juices are spinach and apples, or carrots and beets.  Freezing – This is the method to store foods for quite some time. It prevents food from getting spoiled. Freezing is preferred over canning, as frozen food (when made at home) is far superior in nutrients to canned foods. Freezing is not ideal, but it is an acceptable process for preserving foods for a short period of time on an incremental basis. Raw food is simple with profound effects, and has a wide range of recipes that are very simple. For example, blend a banana, an apple, 3 or 4 spinach and romaine leaves, half a cup of water, and some fresh lemon juice. This green fruit smoothie is ready in less than a minute. All it takes is for you to buy and gather the food. You can change the ingredients, and add other fruits and vegetables to make your own smoothie. Many people assume that switching to a raw food diet means that you must make complex food recipes or eat bland food. In reality, raw food is far more versatile, and you learn to appreciate the food for its real flavor rather than food disguised by spices and seasonings! For example, a taco can be substituted for a raw food version with some fresh, homemade salsa (green peppers, fresh tomatoes, lemon juice, and onion), chickpea hummus, and garden greens. The key to transitioning from a processed food lifestyle to a raw food lifestyle is as easy as thinking about how foods are in their natural state. Eat foods as close to the natural biological form, cook as minimal as needed for food safety or flavor/texture and as necessary for optimal nutrient absorption. Remember, simple is better.
