Raw food diet is one of the most popular diets right now. The popularity is also because of the break our body’s need from the processed junk that we have been putting in our bodies. The main idea ids to consume unprocessed, plant based and organic food. The rationale behind the raw food diet is that more we keep our bodies closer to the natural state, the better it will be for our health in the long term.
There are many ways of consuming raw foods. Sprouts are common and so are nuts and fruits and vegetables. What is important is that the processing of foods is not done in a manner that introduces toxins in to the food stuff. This means right from sourcing, treating, cooking (some of the food) and the storage- all has to be organic and keep the nutrient level as close to the real amount as possible.
Another way is to convert the raw food into raw smoothies. Blending and chopping the food adds a lot of variety into the otherwise bland and difficult to sustain diet. Smoothies are a great way to ensure that many ingredients can be combined in endless combinations and this ensures a fun element into the austere diet.
