One of the perks of consuming a plant-based diet is the simple fact that you can eat as much as you want. How’s that for a diet? Never count calories again! You can be rest assured that as long as you’re sticking to fruits and veggies, you can indulge yourself at every meal and feel satisfied! Your body will do its own adjusting so no more worries about having too much. Those days are gone with raw food. Start each day by fixing yourself a fruit salad using your favorite fruits. Or maybe opt for a fruit smoothie to get the internal juices flowing. If done right, this meal will hold you until lunchtime, when it’s time for a dark green, leafy salad chock full of veggies! (Same goes for dinner.) Make it as big as you want, add a squeeze of a lime for your dressing and enjoy! If you think you’re going to be hungry or that it’s just not going to be enough, think again. Wait twenty minutes and do a hunger check. If you’re still hungry, have seconds! There’s no guilt with raw food. Inbetween, you might just want a snack. Think nuts! A small handful of raw almonds or raw peanuts should do the trick.
There’s no limit to the types of meals you can prepare using raw fruits and veggies. The variations are only limited by your imagination. Ask a Vegan for their favorites. We all have them. Just make sure that each meal makes your eyes gloss over and your mouth water. If you need some new ideas, visit your local bookstore for the “Vegan Cookbook” section. There you will find a mass of great information.
Lastly, it goes without saying that exercise is crucial for a fit, healthy body. Your results will only be heightened with a raw food diet. Your body rewards you with energy to spare so no more excuses! After being this nice to your body, you will feel relaxed and calm, and you’ll be ready to fall into a relaxed, deep sleep. Now that sounds like a successful day.
THINK GREENS! GO RAW!
