Two books that really helped me initially go all raw was The Sunfood Success Diet System by David Wolfe and 12 Steps to Raw Food by Victoria Boutenko. Nowadays there are so many Raw Food Potlucks on craigslist.org and meetup.com. Imagine finding a new network of friends to help support and encourage you along the way!
It’s been 5 years since I started my raw food journey. I continue to feel better, more energetic, healthier and younger every day! And I have maintained my weight loss without ever feeling like I am on a limiting diet.
Losing weight is just one of the many benefits in a raw food diet. My skin clearing was my biggest accomplishment in going raw and seeing the results. For more than 2 years, I suffered with an uncomfortable, irritable rash. See the full story here.
Every day I get compliments on my skin – how clear and healthy it is, my hair – how natural and clean it looks, and my eyes -how clear and vibrant they are…these are things I never heard when eating a cooked and devitalized food diet. Also my energy has improved and I have more passion about the things I do in life, something that I never expected from raw foods. I feel more connected to my body and to Mother Earth. I digest food better and I enjoy the flavors in food more, and believe me there are so many beautiful delicious flavors in raw foods – just try fresh tamarind, ginger, jack fruit, apricots, papaya, pineapple or mango and you will understand!
Keep in mind that you do not have to commit to a 100% raw food diet in order to enjoy the benefits of raw foods. Your body will be grateful to receive any natural vibrations from Mother Earth! I support you on your journey to better health and vibrant living and Mother Earth supports you too!
