New kid in raw.

edited August 2012 in New to Raw

Hey, I'm Amy, and I've started thinking recently about changing my diet a bit to include mostly raw foods. My digestive system simply HATES processed foods, and I'm sick of bloating etc!!

I've been vegan for the past 11 months, and I can't wait to take the next step.

Does anyone have any tips/meal plans/etc that would be useful??

Thanks :)

  • Yep, go for for simple meals made out of fruit.

    This way you avoid the processed food, and get tons of nutrients, and energy.

    I also suggest reading 80 10 10 book.

    Here is a simple recipe:

    4 bananas in a blender with handful of your favorite berries or a whole kiwi skin on.

    enough water to make it blend.

    enjoy.

  • Hi Amy,

    Welcome along, I'd recommend you start simple and see how things go.

    Maybe you could have fruit for breakfast, or a green smoothie (banana, spinach, berries is a great one and you can't taste the greens!).

    For lunch you could have a big salad with a nice dressing, then dinner could be something more adventurous like zucchini 'pasta' and sauce or a soup or even another salad/smoothie/fruit, depending on your time and/or abilities.

    Snacks throughout the day could be fruit, crackers, veggies and dips, fresh juices, nuts/seeds, etc.
