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.
