Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
The hardest thing about trying a Raw diet, *for me anyway, is after I have eaten all the fruit, what then? I'm full but then dinner time rolls around and suddenly my tummy is growling and I want something more satisfying. What to "not" cook next? It's so NOT AS EASY as it Looks. Then I think it's because we are programed to think that if it's not cooked, covered in sauce or herbs it can't be good. It's was the same thing when I gave up cheese. I thought, "WTF? WHAT AM I GONNA EAT THAT DOESN'T HAVE CHEESE?" turns out food actually tastes all right without cheese! Also it tastes pretty good without gravy or sauces, especially if it is fresh.
The BIGGEST myths that I noticed were:
1. It's too expensive!
2. It takes for-ever to prepare. (Said while rolling eyes)
3. It taste like crap.
4. It's same old boring thing, day after day.
All of the above are lies! Lies I tell you!
#1. When you stop purchasing all the other crap, you have more than enough money to eat healthy. It's just difficult in the beginning when you are transitioning.
#2. Nope, Mostly it's super quick. You may have to let something sit in freezer/fridge but the prep time to not too bad. Good equipment (just like conventional cooking) is a key part.
#3. If your food tastes like crap you are doing it wrong! It's actually amazingly good and flavorful. My mouth now waters when I see fruits and veggies and I am replaced by candy/cupcakes/Crap.
#4. The sky is the limit on what you prepare. There are some amazing sites that offer FREE recipes and advice. Also good (and cheap) (not) cookbooks you can buy.
But it's not ALL ABOUT NUTS either, so don't loose faith is you are allergic. The planet is actually full of Food. *Who knew? When can eat and more importantly ENJOY, without polluting the environment or our bodies. #WIN
