Welcome to MyRawFoodBlog, this raw food endeavor is a support and information place for those of us (me!) joining/being the rawfood movement, for all of the reasons we might do that. The focus of this blog is the effects of eating over half of ones calories from raw veggies and fruits. Rawfoodism has helped me be more intelligent about heating vegetables when I do cook (i.e., using more moisture, less cook time, lower heat, and containing the cooked fluids in a soup all reduce loss of nutrients). Most of all rawfoodism is about discovering new ways to increase the amount of raw greens in the diet (exquisitely delicious salads, marinades, smoothies, pates, cold soups, dressings, desserts, etc.). Using fruits as sweeteners and nuts and seeds as fats raw recipes transform your palate away from the American diet with ease. In fact lets reclaim the American diet, lets become the envy of the world – we have the remarkable access to a wide diversity of vegetables and fruits right now.
The idea is that I wanted a place to keep notes, favorite videos, recipes, etc.
If I come across a neat way to increase success, you’ll read about it here. If others would like to follow along for the ride, that’s great. I think what we eat affects us all, and hopefully we’ll learn from each other and meet up at a whole foods wellness retreat in Hawaii some day.
Agree with me? Disagree? Leave a comment! Comments are an encouraged part of this site. We are all learning from each other. A lot of the inspiration for this blog comes from great people in my life, reading health food books, and other sites. I am not a professional writer of any kind.
I do want to share this experience because going raw has helped me. Years ago I solved migraine and digestive problems all by going more raw and dairy free. The more I do it the more the problems are solved, so I keep exploring and invite you to join me.
