I have no idea what all is pictured (sometimes the picture loads on this entry, and other times it doesn’t) in this table spread of raw foods I found here (there is SOOO much information on this site that I will look into), but it all looks very interesting and healthy. Plus, bonus of no cooking your food. Imagine how much time that can save in the kitchen. Fresh produce is much easier to prepare than conventional cooked, baked and processed foods…AND, you would also be using less electricity and gas, so your ecological footprint would be reduced, along with your energy costs. Seems like a win-win to me!
I eat raw foods here and there, but not as much as I would like to eat after watching various food documentaries: “FOODMATTERS”, “Food, Inc.”, “Forks Over Knives”, and “Super Size Me”...to name the few off the top of my head.
The things that pass for food and good nutrition in American (and other countries, but America is definitely leading he way in fake foods) is horrifying. Most people have no want to know where their food comes from, or what it really consists of, but that seems like cruel and unusual punishment towards your own well-being. Food is your lifeline. You are what you eat!!!
I love my Blood Type Diet Plan, and how I feel wen eat the best foods for me, but I want to start taking it further in regards to adding more vitamins and minerals that our western society has depleted our bodies of. I do not want to be ignorant when it comes to food and well health, so, yes, I immerse myself in information regarding bettering myself and my family. “Knowledge is Power,” my late uncle always said. He was right.
In the coming years (years, because school is going to take a lot out of me until mid-2014), I plan on researching what vitamins and minerals are needed to best maintain a healthy and functioning inner and outer body, what raw food items to find them in, in what amounts, how to prepare various dishes and I want to start learning how to juice…once I buy a damn good juicer, that is. I also have a want to start my own organic, vegetable garden when I have the area to do so. I think that would be awesome!
Food is meant to heal, not make you feel, tired, bloated and depressed, and cause you to gain not only unhealthy weight, but illness and diseases, as well. Let thy food be thy medicine; I love this thought process. Away with the big pharma companies and false hopes in a pill that will only cause more damage to you.
This goal will likely be on here for quite some time, as I learn more and more about the raw foods world. I am a quick study when it comes to nutrition and health, in general. This will be a fun learning experience. I hope to add more raw food choices in daily, little by little, and reset my inner workings to feel 110%!! :)
