A Raw Food Day

A Raw Food Day – an entire day with pure raw organic food. Fresh fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts and seeds – and all prepared in flavourful ways .

It’s a luxury for your body, mind, heart and soul.

And, … it’s super easy to prepare and even easier to clean up afterwards – imagine no greasy pots and pans!

I have been amazed, astounded really, by the power of green food!

Lifestyle diseases can be cured by lifestyle changes! 

By incorporating more greens into your diet you give your body what it needs to thrive.

For me there is no going back, I love this shift – it keeps me healthy, vibrant and full of energy. I no longer think of my weight when eating and I eat just what I feel like.

I think that, key is to satisfy hunger with nourishing greens (first and primarily). When we do that, we stop craving unhealthy foods, we make healthier choices and feel satisfied.

Here are some easy and great ways to incorporate more greens into your diet:

  • Plan raw food meals
  • Try a raw food day (days?)
  • Exchange one meat dish with a plant-based one
  • Try to snack and eat plant-based foods during the day
  • Drink green smoothies and green juice
  • When you eat meat, eat it as a side dish.

 Breakfast 

A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. A bowl of creamy Raw Food Oatmeal, made from raw oats, almonds, Medjool dates and grated apples.

  1. You go, raw girl! Well-done & the foods all look very appetizing too because sometimes with raw food, it doesn’t always look very edible & tasty to me! But your raw foods look amazing! If every raw dinner or raw recipe would look this good: I would eat more raw foods & raw dishes! xxx

    • Thank you Cass – this is SO easy to make you will be totally surprised, but true it does have to be planned.
      In the beginning it was a whole new adventure. now it’s like “oh tonight we’ll just have some raw food” 🙂

  2. This sounds so delicious Anne! I try to incorporate raw foods into my diet daily. I think avocados and tomatoes are my current favorites. I’m definitely trying the cauliflower crunch this week. Looks fantastic!

    • Thank you Karista! Adding more raw food dishes into the diet is such a perfect way to boost health. Pure food works wonders every time – for soul, mind and body 🙂
      I hope you will enjoy the cauliflower crunch!

  3. I have more questions for you Anne 🙂 … hope you don’t mind. Do you take any suplements or at least super foods in the form of algae or some vegetal protein poweder or maca root, camu-camu and things like that? Furthermore, I hate fish and tend to use flaxseeds or hempseeds – what do you think of those?
