I'm definentally sold. I'm going raw as soon as I can.


Recommended Posts

I just need some meal ideas. Preferably I want it to consist entirely of shakes and smooties. So that way I can easily store it in my own refridgerator and access the food easily.

 

So far this is my basic meal layout.( FYI this diet won't be 100 percent raw. Just the important/obvious things I will consume raw )

 

Breakfast: A super huge vegetable shake consisting of the most important and vital vegetables.

 

Lunch: A big container filled with a fruit and nut mix( Different types of Nuts and a few types of driied/undried fruit to go with it )

 

Dinner: A super huge fruit shake consisting of the most important and vital fruit.

 

Before workout shack( To get me pumped ) A Soy/chocolate Shake( The Soy and chocolate will be made fresh from the beans, soaked and then made. I already have plans to buy a Soymilk maker. I just don't know a thing about making chocolate from the raw bean. I'd flavor it not with sugar but with fruit. The fruit I already know would go well is Banana. Any other suggestions? Maybe some figs too. Figs are good in Fiber I hear.

 

The only concern I have is eating enough calories and getting enough/If possible more then enough of the three main areas I want most. Fiber, Carbs and Protein.

 

Any information( Preferably the foods with the most of something ) and even examples of what other raw vegans eat would be really helpful.

 

The only thing I see worth giving up is chocolate although I know it has great health benefits.

 

I'm also planning to suppliment with a Multi-vitamin( Preferably A super Vitamin with a lot of everything I'd need (( Including B-12 )) would be perfect. ) And I'm still considering weather or not it's worth it to also use a protein/vitamin powder supplement to add to my soy shake. The more vitamins the better right?

 

Of course I'm also factoring in water too. The more water the better.

Things that go well with raw cacao shakes..... Coconut meat/water, agave nectar, dates, maca powder, nut butter, goji berries and like you said bananas and figs r cool also.

 

'vital' greens...... kale and bokchoy +

(bitter herbs) watercress, parsley, dandelion greens and

cilantro IMO.

 

have fun with it!

I only ask because in general I'm clueless on how to make a raw diet work because I really have no idea on what types of foods to eat and how much to eat. I'd really thing a raw diet would help me. I just don't know how to go about it.

Raw diet is very simple compaired to many other diets. Get as many books as you can and read up on everything. A good place to start is making big salads. Also another good thing to do is by some raw powders, so you can make a quick meal.

I think you are worrying too much about it Dr.

Concentrate on adding more raw items to your diet.

In the beginning just eat as much raw food as you can and don't worry about anything.

Learn as you go. I'm learning the green smoothie.

I just made a huge spinach-banana smoothie with a little stevia to sweeten it.

Don't worry about fiber, carbs or protein. You will get enough if you eat enough calories.

You will want to learn about the types of fats that you are eating.

Here is a good video on essential fats

Dr. Fuhrman's book "Eat to Live" would be a good investment.

 

Are you over your taste for soy sauce yet?

You need to chill out with the creating topics that basically say the same thing.

 

haha agreed.

 

 

Here are some very useful websites to check out:

 

www.living-food.com

www.rawfoodexplained.com

www.cafegratitude.com

www.lovingfoods.com

 

 

 

Also...

go to Google.com, type in "raw vegan", and there will be thousands upon

thousands of links for resources and information.

 

go to YouTube.com, type in "raw vegan" , and there will be hundreds

upon hundreds of instructional videos not only for nutritional purposes,

but also for different recipe ideas.

 

 

 

 

 

Best of Luck with your transition!
