I once heard a rawfoodist say the only food in a grocery store is in the produce aisle, the rest is nearly all fake food in boxes, cans and plastic wrap. Good point, I like to stay in the most scenic aisle too, it is like visiting a most fruitful garden. Also raw foodists can appreciate plastic and can know the best niches of any store. So once upon stepping away from the green scene…When there isn’t a beautiful bulk aisle look for the dried fruit, nut, seed, spices, grain sections; frozen fruits and veggies aisle can save a recipe, vacuum sealed avacodo spread can be found in the frozen, glass jarred raw refrigerated items (sauerkraut Bubbies, kimchi), raw honey, sun dried tomatoes, thick oats (Bob’s Red Mill)… I once lived with 5 german engineering students, they loved their thick oats and dried fruit soaked in hot water. They would just heat some water pour it over the oats and soak a minute or longer and voila, the dried fruit turns huge and deliciously more flavorful and more digestable (try soaking separately and just give them a good drink). Try soaking walnuts and pumpkin seeds (two of nutritionists all time favs for healthy fats) can be soaked overnight and you will see them grow to twice the size and increase in flavor. Walnuts especially get lighter and easier to digest, with their enzymes having come alive and gotten all excited by the drink they are bursting with good nutrients for you.
The point is the where is the raw food? It is in the yard, in the forest, people become attached to wild berry expeditions…it is in the refrigerated section, soaking in your fridge, at your friends house, on the salad bar, in almost every restaurant kitchen, hiding between brightly colored boxes in groceries…You have only to knock Silly Queen and the raw food door will open.
