We all know that it is good to add more raw food into your diet and most people are trying their best to do this. People are looking for ways to add more raw food into diet and are searching the internet for ideas or possibly visiting raw food restaurants to taste gourmet raw foods.
Salads, salads, salads…..in the winter, who wants to eat salads? When people are looking for ideas they are probably looking for something different. It is exciting to discover the wonderful world of gourmet raw foods! Who wouldn’t be excited about a decadent dairy-free cheesecake? Or a chocolate layer cake made with nuts, dates and coconut and no flour! What about a wrap filled with sauces that are dairy free and the wrap itself is wheat-free?
It is so cool to eat food that tastes rich and delicious, especially the sauces you thought you may never be able to eat again. I say go for it if you are just starting your raw food journey and have recently given up dairy, meat, sugar and gluten…but I want to caution you to: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU EAT YOUR GREENS!
Raw desserts, sauces, dips, wraps, crackers and breads are great and a better alternative than anything in the SAD food diet. But they are also high in calories and in many cases – high in fat. Of course, having these foods in moderation is fine as long as you continue to eat a lot of greens and fruit.
Make a salad a BIG part of your meal. If you want something warm, make a raw soup and warm it up or saute some greens in a frying pan with coconut oil, garlic and ginger and then add a bit of braggs (or tamari) and a touch of apple cider vinegar.
