What exactly is a raw vegan diet and why should I consider adopting one? There are a number of advantages to eating an uncooked, plant-based diet. Let’s take a look at a few:
- Less disease and health concerns.
- A large variety of nutrient rich, low calorie foods to choose from.
- Easier to digest and absorb nutrients and enzymes.
- Inexpensive because you can grow fruit, vegetables, herbs, and nuts yourself.
- Detoxifies system.
- Helps you lose weight and maintain a healthy weight.
A raw vegan diet consists of raw fruits and vegetables, nuts and nut pastes or butters, seeds, sprouted grain and legumes, plant oils, herbs, and fresh juices. Organic is always the best. After a very short time, old cravings will subside and you’ll start to notice a difference in the type of food that you gravitate to. Instead of sugar-laden, nutrient dense food, you’ll want something soul-satisfying and rich in vitamins and nutrients.
With so much encouragement to eat raw, how could you not try at least one new recipe? Not only will you look better, you’ll feel fantastic. Without a diet of sugar and processed foods, you’ll live up to your fullest potential. You’ll experience higher energy levels which will allow you to concentrate at the task at hand. You’ll also lessen your risk factors for heart disease, hypertension, and Type 2 Diabetes.
It’s a win-win for you. You’ll get to sample a whole new menu’s worth of food that you’ve never tried and improve your health at the same time. Who doesn’t want to maintain their ideal weight, get creative in the kitchen, and live a long, healthy life?
