Raw Foods Diet – Vibrant and Healthy

Raw Meetup Treats

Raw Meetup Treats

The raw vegan sushi made of avocado, green onion, sprouts, and walnut paste had me at hello. Walnuts also starred — along with sunflower oil — in the applesauce, and made their way into the pumpkin pie. This was not your average pie featuring our squashy friend the pumpkin, but a raw concoction of banana, strawberries, sunflower seeds, almonds, sunflower seeds, currants, coconut meat, and spices, sweetened with stevia and dates. These and other flavorful dishes were artfully shared at a  raw vegan meetup during a lovely October day in the park.

People following a raw foods diet feast on fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, grains, sea vegetables, and other unprocessed organic or natural foods. Raw foodists believe heating food over roughly 116 degrees Fahrenheit destroys enzymes vital to the digestive process, and that cooking seriously diminishes the vitamin and mineral content of our food — the “Life-Force.”

Raw food folks report feeling and looking great, and improvements in their general physical and mental health. They say the diet gives them more energy, helps with losing weight and detoxification, and nurtures a sturdier immune system which can recover from many diseases. Some raw foodists also feel happier, more spiritually connected, and fulfilled knowing the diet benefits the planet and animals.

Have some fun shopping online and glancing at what award-winning author Ani Phyo keeps in her home.  Attending one of the Raw Spirit Festivals filled with chefs, speakers, music, and health-food devotees is sure to inspire too!

    Wonderful blog, I just came across it and I am already a fan. I just shed thirty pounds in 30 days, and I am excited to share my weight loss success with as many people as possible. If I can lose weight then any one can. No matter what you do, never give up and you WILL attain every one of your weight loss ambitions!
