Raw diet recipes

  1. 1. One health trend that has taken the world by cooking video recipes storm is raw foodism often associated with veganism, or the complete exclusion of animal products and gourmet cooking recipes by products. This is one of the strictest forms of diets and attracts a limited number of people, usually vegans who progress from a cooked to raw plant-based regimen. Challenging for lots of people wanting to go raw is how to do it and still be able to enjoy a greatmeal (much more a complete lifestyle). For those who have grown up on a diet ofheavily processed, fat- and sugar-laded food, giving up their favourite steak andpotatoes, burgers, hotdogs and pizza is a struggle. The advice of those who’vesuccessfully transitioned is not to do a 180 degree turn and give up what they love toeat and just eat vegetables. Most of the time that just leads to deprivation andoutright misery! However, there are many motivations for people to consider this kindof lifestyle. Most do it for health or ethical concerns, some form of vanity, or becauseit’s the latest fad in Hollywood. For those who are considering to go raw vegan, it is recommended that theyconsult their health providers (alternative or Western) and someone who’s been onthe path already who can guide you to what can be a great journey. Aside fromthis, one has to prepare a budget as organic vegetables can get pricey. A supportgroup is also helpful as people on the same path can exchange recipes, ingredientsand sources, etc. And don’t jump into the bandwagon just for the sake of it. Listento your body and do it gradually preferably with a buddy so you don’t do it alone.And a little raw food is better than none at all.

Raw foodistsclaim that a healthy body comes from a healthy digestive tract. Toxins that line yourinnards over the years lead to poor digestion which leads to a slew of other ailments.Be careful preparing your raw food and make sure to wash your ingredients,equipment and hands well. Now comes the challenge: How to make raw food taste good?! The key is touse the best organic and natural produce available. After all, you’re doing this forhealth, right? Keeping it raw means keeping all the nutrients intact – so you don’twant to be preserving artificial potentially harmful chemicals. One thing’s for sure, when you sit down to a purely raw food meal, you’re sureto have an interesting experience! If it’s great tasting or not is another story. But likeany kind of cuisine, people react differently from the taste of raw food – some areamazed at the wide variety of dishes created from just plants – think noodles, pizza,even burgers.
