What we eat is close to our hearts
I have found that it can be tricky discussing what we eat – I have found that the subject touches peoples values, beliefs, culture, family and personal choices – it can be a sensitive subject much like discussing politics or religion. But it needn’t be this way. We have to lighten up when it comes to food.
While transitioning towards a high raw diet your own options will vary depending on your health, your goals and your current diet. I recommend that you do not get fixated on any ‘raw rules’ in your early days of raw. Moving towards my present eating habits took me more than four years of exploring what works for my body and instinctively what I was enjoying.
What I love about Raw is that you don’t have to worry too much about calories. They play no part in the raw food world. Which is great as I was never very good with maths. However it is still possible to overeat on raw and to not lose weight if you are eating too ‘gourmet’ with lots of heavy nut based dishes. I try to enjoy as many living raw plant based ingredients with organic herbs and medicinal foods.
