A raw food diet, it's all good

I've recently been won over by the concept of a raw food diet, in part due to the abundance of brightly coloured vegetables and fresh fruits. I've been following raw, vegan foodist, FullyRaw Kristina and I have to say, it is addictive.

Her images of beautifully presented vegetables accompanied by raw sauces and dressings have twisted my arm and brought me round to the idea of a raw food diet.



As a rule I certainly don't eat what I consider to be 'enough' vegetables, so I thought I'd give it a go, for the second time. I tried a raw food diet during university, two years ago, but I didn't quite follow a plan and I ended up eating only fruit, which resulted in poor skin and constant bloating.

Now, however, I've done it the proper way, and after a week of eating only raw vegetables, salad leaves, an abundance of fruit, and a few nuts every other day, I can honestly say raw is my way forward.



You might think I'm exagerating, but now that I know how easy it is to throw together both a tasty and nutritious side salad, or vegan dish, I have benefited in numerous ways.

Firstly, it is extremely satisfying to make a huge bowl of vegetables, tuck in with curiosity and be pleasantly surprised by the taste.

I haven't worried about calories, what's in my food, or an unpleasant reaction, because I've been making the food myself, and haven't had to read the label before I take the first bite.

The most noticeable difference is how I feel.

My skin is clearer than it has been in months and I feel lighter. I'm eating as many vegetables as I want, and nothing is off limits.

I'm aware that this type of lifestyle isn't for everyone and it can exclude you from dining out with friends, or limit your meal choices in restaurants, but I urge you to give a try for a week, and just see how it makes you feel.

You've got nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain. Health is wealth after all.

Love the Raw Kitchen in Fremantle, WA. Delicious meals, free from gluten, dairy, and sugar. Can;t go past the amazing deserts. Last time I was there I had the lemon berry swirl cheesecake which was divine.
