I'm intrigued about getting into the raw lifestyle as a colleague of mine did for health reasons and completely reversed his condition which usually carries a death sentence. Now a year or so later I also see how much weight he has lost and other positive health effects which intrigues me, but I'm hesitant about being able to go raw. His situation is that his family has come together to support him, and I'm a single individual so the amount of time, money and resources that I have available to dedicate to food and preparation is limited.
Because of these restraints, I doubt that I can immediately dive in to raw foods. I only have a blender, no dehydrator or juicer and I'm very busy so usually don't want to spend more than a half hour per meal to prepare the food, and resources are limited for lunches at work.
What I'm really looking for is advice on something to start with and how others have phased into raw food. I'm thinking about starting with something like making raw snacks for a short period and then start phasing some actual meals into the mix. Is this a good way to start or should I go another way? Thanks.
