There are so many amazing pates, soups, spreads, even cheeses people are making with raw foods. It is a business waiting to happen. A friend of ours has been asked to work on making his fermented all raw cheeses (actually they are delicious, that name doesn’t sound delicious) as a product with a company. These amazing foods are like the gourmet of raw. I think most people aren’t making gourmet anything at home. I do love blending delicious things. However for me right now in my life I am loving the simple. And it really can be so easy. So mornings for me are often just a banana. If I know I will be doing hot yoga or something active I might add a few (think no more than 6) brazil nuts (an important source of selenium). Later in the morning I might have a grapefruit or pear.
I just want to encourage thinking simply. It is simple to add easily digestible healthful foods. It doesn’t have to be complex. I snack on carrots. Eat an avocado just plain like that, it is so nice when it is so simple. A whole tomato can be enjoyed just like an apple. Just take a bite carefully. Green and red peppers are lovely eaten whole like people eat apples. Celery, etc. so much is just so plainly simple. And yet each plant is extremely complex and you can really see that when it is enjoyed in its simplest form. If I have blended it I don’t have a chance to see how beautiful it is just like it is.
I want to send a big shout out to all the readers and writers and makers of this incredible raw movement revolution which really has saved me in so many ways. My digestion SO much prefers a mostly raw diet and now I don’t feel so weird with such a large gang of amazing people jumping on this wagon. We are all riding together. I am so glad I found out about this secret that you can eat so simply. Of course what is popularized by commercial media is not necessarily a reflection of what is most functional and incredible. Best to you all! : )
