Getting Enough Nourishment on a Raw Food Diet

Getting Enough Nourishment on a Raw Food Diet

You might agree on an intellectual level that eating raw foods is a good idea. But does the thought of abandoning a lifetime of eating habits for the sake of what seems like a good idea seem like more than you can do?

So, don’t! That’s silly and the surest way to guarantee you won’t even give raw foods diet a fighting chance. “Everything in moderation” and we think that applies to even the healthiest notions. It’s not healthy if you won’t do it!

Don’t think of trying a raw foods diet as taking anything AWAY.

Try adding them in. We think if you add in things like raw vegetables, sprouts, fruits, and juices, you won’t be as hungry and when you’re not hungry, you won’t give into impulsive eating. If you want that steak or even a McDonald’s hamburger, plan for it and enjoy it. Once you start eating raw foods though and notice how good you feel about them and how much more energy you have, that hamburger just won’t look as good to you.

However, you must make sure that you are consuming the right kinds of nutrition in sufficient amounts. Consuming only raw foods that you enjoy is not the definition of eating raw food. Although watermelon is healthy, it is not sufficient. Same goes for most foods. 

You'll need to do some research to determine which raw foods contain the necessary proteins or what food combinations you should consume to meet your protein requirements. 

Eating raw food is meant to nourish your body in a completely different way but being raw alone is insufficient. You need to balance the raw foods you consume for proper nutrition, so you want to do this in order to be in balance.

Making sure you consume enough nutrients is one way to do this.

One way to ensure that you are getting enough nutrients is to incorporate a new vegetable every week. Buy something you have never heard of, like a “leek”, or “swiss chard.”

You will find a whole new world of tastes and textures open up to you.
