I eat a mostly raw diet (I love a cooked dinner). One of the major things you need to pay attention to is eating a colorful diet. You can’t just live off of greens. You need oranges, reds, etc. Get a good mixture of nuts and seeds, but not too much. Same with avocado. I agree with Sarah, definitely invest in a food processor or blender. There are some amazing raw food blogs I recommend checking out for recipes. crazyrawvegan.com uncooking101.com rawfoodrecipes.com rawon10.com realrawkitchen.com spicedblueberryshake.blogspot.com. There are more though so look around. Good luck!
I really want to go vegan (I’m a vegetarian right now), but I cannot have gluten because it gives me really bad migraines. Also, it’s hard for my parents to see how an active 14 year old girl can get protein without eggs or dairy. Do you have suggestions? Thank you! 😀
I’m not fully raw, but I do try and eat a high-raw diet, or at least mostly raw. I’m not too too strict though. I still enjoy meat alternatives and dairy alternatives, but I never cook any of my vegetables or fruits, because their sole purpose is for nutrients. (I hope that logic makes sense to you) There are plenty of online resources to help you transition into raw veganism, such as recipes, blogs, YouTube videos, etc. There’s also a really good documentary on Netflix called “Food Matters” which talks a lot about the benefits of a raw lifestyle. As far as food goes, if you plan on going fully raw, I definitely recommend that you invest in a blender and/or a juicer if you don’t already have one. Many raw vegans make a lot of smoothies and juices, which are high in nutritional value and are easy to make. I hope this helps somewhat!
