I do enjoy it and it is not a militant regiment. I am not planing on being 100% raw, believing it is not entirely necessary nor perhaps healthy for me.
But I feel great, finding slowly my right weight and believe it or not, my food cravings are a thing of the past!
I found so many helpful sites online and in books.
What I eat and drink:
All vegetables locally and seasonable available, mostly organic (Mostly raw, some steamed, some dehydrated)
Fish (some raw) and mostly white meat ( I do love a steak once in a while)
Cooked and raw.
Seeds, nuts and legumes
Lactose free cream cheese, cheddar, Swiss cheese, kefir and Lactose free yogurts
Home made slow cooked oat meal
|My own creation....|
Quinoa, chia, amaranth, oats, spelt bread
Rice, soy and almond milk
Super fruits: Acai and Goji
|Love this breakfast Chia Goodness|
Sugar free or low sugar jams and preserves
All things pickled.
Almonds, fruis like pears or an apple, raw snacks like
cacao goji superfood Navitas) or Chocolate Super cookies (go raw), I eat lentil and flax crackers, raw dips and sauces.
I have exchanged soy sauce with Bragg's Liquid Amino's
and use salt rather sparingly. But I do not skimp on spices.
Water, water, water
One cup of coffee a day and teas (back, green, herbal)
Seldom a glass of wine. No other alcohol.
What I not eat and drink - anymore:
Anything store bought pre-cooked or semi prepared, baked goods, like cake, rolls, regular bread, sweets. Canned goods or pre cooked meats and sausages. Only very very rarely do I make an exception.
Dairy, apart above mentioned items
Pasta (I eat brown rice based pasta on occasion)
Anything where I need a dictionary to understand the ingredients...
I try to keep my sugar intake low, apart from natural occurring sugars like in fruits, the amount of sugar in most yogurts for example is appalling.
Same for condiments, I avoid them or make them myself.
A use Dijon mustard once in a while and olive and flax oil.
Sodas and store bought juice
Very rarely dark chocolate.
It is amazing what one can eat and find once you put your mind to it!
Life is an adventure!
