So, you’re looking into a raw food diet and wanting to make it easy on yourself. First thing I want to say is “congratulations.” Going raw, even just part way, can transform your life in more ways than you can imagine. I’ve been doing it now for 10 years and I feel like a different person altogether. Over the years I’ve helped a lot of people transition to raw food lifestyles and I’ve learned quite a bit about what works and what doesn’t. I’ve put this little guide together to make raw food easier. I hope it helps you.
TIP ONE: When you first start out with raw foods you’re going to see some amazing looking dishes like raw pizza and raw chocolate.
If you’ve got a restaurant where you can eat them, great! If not, please do not stress about learning to make them right away. Raw food chefing is a skill that takes a while to master. I had a lot of success with doing things like eating 4 or 5 avocados with some seaweed when I first started into raw. The main point is, don’t try to get to fancy to early or you might just get frustrated.
TIP TWO: Learn about superfoods and get them into your diet as soon as you can.
Here’s the thing. Not all foods are created equal. Some are incredibly high and dense in nutrients, proteins, minerals, fatty acids and so on. You’ll have a much better chance of succeeding on raw food if you start eating them early on. That’s because these foods will give you much of the nutrition you need while you’re making the transition. Some examples of superfoods include goji berries, flax seed oil, coconut oil, bee pollen and spirulina. A great way to get them into you is to blend them in a smoothie. My morning superfood smoothie usually takes me through the day until 3 or 4pm.
TIP THREE: The sooner you can complete a thorough herbal cleanse the better.
For years, you’ve probably been eating some kinds of food that don’t digest well. When you change to raw, some detox will happen automatically. But you can really improve your results, if you complete an herbal cleanse quickly in your raw path. I waited two years to do it, but I really wish I hadn’t. I can’t really describe to you how great I felt after my first cleanse. The one I use is called the “ultimate cleanse” by Brett Elliot
Following these tips will save you some time and get you to the “juice” of the raw lifestyle faster than most people. Soon enough you’ll have some friend or family member coming up to you and asking why you’re looking so much younger and healthier.
