Some raw food every day is a great bonus to your body's ability to digest foods. I love my raw fruits and vegetables! I love to find different combinations, so your tastebuds don't know what flavours are coming! Today, I had a fairly regular green salad with green leaves, finely sliced onion, red and green capsicum, celery and avocado, and decided at the last minute to use a dark cherry vinegar with some olive oil as dressing. Wow! What a delicious combination it turned out to be! I had intended to use my usual lemon juice, so was really pleased I tried the cherry vinegar!

I bought a Blendtec and I make raw fruit and veggie smoothies every day. I have noticed a big difference in my skin, sleep, energy level and outlook on life. There are so many diseases that can be reversed on a raw plant based diet.

Eating raw, juicing and having green smoothies has helped me with my fibromyalgia symptoms!
emoticon

I started out top weight 245 but that was when I actually got on a scale. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 20 years ago. Over the years I've learned that I do so much better when I eat organic foods and I haven't eaten red meat in years I have been gradually working more raw foods, vegetables and fruit into my diet. I avoid drive through resturants like the plague.

I'm not acutally following the raw program, just thought the original poster might be interested in the link. I do try try their smooties now and again, but not planning to "go raw" myself.

Keep us posted as to how you are doing on the raw program. It's an interesting concept and from what I've read/seen, very healthy. Good luck to you on your path.

I'm not a raw foodie, but have been trying some of the daily smoothies from young and raw and you may be interested in looking at their site / facebook page as there are loads of great ideas. Over the last few months they've been doing a "green smoothie a day challenge" - https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/30daygreensmoothiechallenge/ if you look at the "files" at the top they have the shopping lists and recipes for the last few months

Aloha!

I was wondering if there are any raw foodies here?

I'm trying to convert and I have noticed on weeks where I'm as raw as possible (at least 80%), the weight just falls off and I feel so energetic and good... but when I fall off the raw wagon I find myself constantly tired, with indigestion, and wanting to eat eat eat. So I have decided that the raw food way is the best way for me. :)
