As many of you know, I ate a 100% raw diet a few years back and it lasted for a couple of months. I truly loved every minute of it…and felt healthier than I have in my entire life. And oh my…the food. So amazing. I haven’t ever gone back to 100% raw, but I love raw foods of all kinds and try to incorporate as many raw foods into my diet as possible. The benefits are amazing. Right now, I am probably at 50-60% raw (my goal is 80%+). I eat LOTS of fruits and veggies. Yum.
A typical day lately has been fruit or oatmeal and tea for breakfast, a big salad for lunch (with a simple homemade dressing) and then a healthy vegan supper with another salad. I have cut WAY back on my bread (even whole wheat), salt, and butter consumption and have seen a huge difference in how bloated I feel. It’s like a layer of myself peeled away. It’s hard to explain 🙂 I’ve stopped buying boxed “snack” foods for Bella as well. Nearly every one of them was made of “enriched” flour…even though they are organic. Blech. For snacks now, she eats raw fruits and veggies, dried fruit, or sprouted bread.
My friend, Tara, linked to a wonderful raw blog and I wanted to share it with you. I can’t wait to try the raw brownies she posted about…but I REALLY enjoyed checking out the entire blog. I especially loved the amazing before and after photos. You cannot deny the POWER raw food has to heal bodies and lives. It’s alive and powerful!
Be sure to check out this clip of a movie called Supercharge Me…it’s great!
