Good morning to anyone who is reading this! I've been 85% to 90% RAW for the past month, and some days it's 100%! I feel great. Really great. My energy is higher, my skin is detoxing and my tummy is tighter than it was. I'm being gentle on myself though, and trying not get upset when I do eat a bite of what Josh and James are having.
I started quite a while ago to introduce more and more raw food into my meals by making the sauces for pasta or rice in a blender (raw) with lots of nice spices and flavours etc. Then it becomes warm when I pour it over the dish and add fresh cut veggies to top it off! The whole family actually prefers it this way and it tastes way better than the cooked versions because we can really get the flavours of the vegetables coming through. The colours are vibrant too!
You can do this with anything you make and gradually build up to a raw lifestyle. I do believe, even though i still like to make cakes and other cooked food, that the raw diet is the way to go (not to scare anyone off, but I feel much better eating this way I have to admit). It might seem crazy to some people, but you should at least try it for a month and you'll know what I'm talking about. Also watch the movie
Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days
I took this photo of my almost raw stir-fry yesterday! The only thing in it that is cooked are the leeks. The rest is shredded carrots, chopped celery, raw tahini, cold pressed olive oil, cayenne pepper, freshly ground black pepper, raw apple cider vinegar, sea salt, beet root, a bit of raw agave nectar (to give it a bit of sweetness), and curry powder. Then I let it sit for a while to marinate in the sauce, which allows the flavours to absorb and the vegetables to become softer, as if you have cooked them. It was delicious! Today I had left over so I added some fresh tomatoes and avocado to it- sooo good.
