Eating raw food based meals does not require extra spending, time or effort. In fact, there are many ways to eat whole foods creatively without spending more than ten minutes in preparation. Beth Wilke, a well known cook and author in the raw food realm, has a book out that can guide you to a simple, healthy life style that is rich in whole foods. Her cookbook “Sensational Raw Foods in Ten Minutes” gives great recipes that will have your mouth watering and your body jumping for joy. You can even make your own almond milk, ice cream, and candy without the guilt of fear of weight gain.
Organic ingredients are not a must, but they are a bonus. What is more important is that you learn how to clean produce so that you avoid eating the harmful chemicals used for fertilizers and pesticides. The important part is that you have more produce in your diet. This means eating more fruits, veggies, and nuts. Take some time to get creative and experience new levels of energy with a raw food diet. Not only is this a great way to clean out your system for spring, but it is a great way to improve your lifestyle for greater health and longevity.
