Raw Foods Diet?

Recommended Posts

I am just interested to see if anyone on this message board follows a raw foods diet? I am not talking about raw meat or eggs, I mean nuts, seeds, fruits and veggies. Anyone?

Hi,

I have often wished I had the ability to go completely raw food. I have a number of friends who are totally immersed in the lifestyle. Since being diagnosed 2 years ago I've tried a number of times but dont think my body is recovered enough

yet.

http://www.livingnutrition.com/

is a great resource site with a good magazine. I write about tropical fruit for them.

I am doing the raw thing, but just started. In fact, I just got my Vitamix today, so a whole bunch more recipies will come available to me now. So far, so good. My skin looks better (right away), my poop is better, my energy is better. I still eat cooked food a couple times per day, but am working toward 90% or so raw. I think I'm a protein type metabolizer, so might want to keep meat or eggs in my diet...as opposed to doing the vegan thing.

Anyway, if you have any questions, make sure to let me know. But I'm pretty new too.

I am actually about 95% raw. I really like it. I was all raw yesterday and I then ate gluten-free toast and I got bloated right away! It was really crazy. I am jealous of your vitamix!!! We have a Cuisinart, but that's nothing compared to a vitamix. How much was yours?

I tried the raw diet. Although I prefer to eat mostly raw foods, I have gastroparesis so I can't always eat this way. I am not the one with the gluten issue though. My daughter is. You do have to be careful with a raw diet because some of the ingredients like Miso and Nama Shoyu or Braggs can contain gluten.

it was about 500 bucks. ouch! you can get a refurbished one for about 400 bucks. AND, Vitamix charges tax even though they sell from out of state. Oh well.

Tonight we ate an all raw dinner: fettuccini made of zucchini (first you use the mandolin, then slice in thin strips) in a marinara sauce (tomatoes, basil, garlic, lemon juice, 1 date, salt, sun dried tomatoes) and it was really good. The whole family liked it. We had salad too.

The marinara was my first job in the Vitamix. I'm looking forward to using it, that's for sure.

Then I made my dessert concoction: pecans, coconut, dates, cocoa nibs, and cashew butter (in the food processor). I roll them into balls. Actually, I have to watch it with this stuff - it's a lot of sugar (in the form of dates). Yum! My partner thinks they need rum, but he's full of it.

I don't use miso or raw soy sauce, but I understood braggs to be gluten free. I keep forgetting to pick some up, so haven't been able to use any recipies with miso yet. What would be a good substitute?

LOL. Rum does make everything better...lol.

I am soy free, so I can't do Braggs either. We actually had a really similar dinner...zucchini with tomatoe sauce (all raw). It was really good. Not the same as cooked, but still really good.

I also made an apple pie yesterday which I have been munching on since then.

Do you have Alissa Cohen's book? Any other books you would suggest?

I might be wrong on the Bragg's. Daughter can't have soy. Perhaps it's soy it contains and not gluten. Anyway... In recipes, I just sub in some Celtic sea salt to taste.
