Many raw food diet recipes require a food dehydrator and / or an ultimate blender, but there are some delicious recipes for eating raw foods that require no special equipment.
Green Smoothies are a great way to start the day and restore the alkaline levels in the body. My personal favorite is spinach leaves mixed with pineapple and enough water to create the preferred consistency. Experience with your taste buds, use any fruits, greens and nut milk. Also consider adding a sprig or two fresh parsley to your smoothie, it is very refreshing and will turn your smoothie into a "pudding" for a delicious dessert.
Just because you have made a healthy decision to turn to eating raw foods, you don't have to forsake your favorite dishes and treats. You'll be glad to know that the Tapioca pudding is easy to make and wonderful for the whole family to enjoy. Simply use 8 oz. of your raw nut milk of choice (cashew nut milk is my favorite) and mix in 2 tbsp. of chia seeds and 1 tbsp. of pure maple syrup. Mix everything together and allow to sit for about 60 minutes. The seeds will plump, leaving you with a delicible pudding to enjoy.
In addition to the above, guacamole is also considered to be one of the popular raw food diet recipes available, and you can whip up a batch and enjoy with some raw veggies.
Better yet, I would like you to try the following salad. It is delicious, colorful and healthy. It does need some prep time, but it is well worth it.
For 4 servings, you will need:
- Some Kale (about 2 small or 1 large bunch);
- 1 cup of blueberries,
- 1 small (cubed) avocado;
- 1 Tbsp. of olive oil;
- A quarter cup of pumpkin seeds (that have been soaked in water for at least 8 hours and then drained); and finally,
- A quarter cup of goji berries (they also need to be soaked if they are dry).
Cut the Kale leaves into thin ribbons, massage the oil and a pinch of sea salt into the leaves and allow for absorption of the oil and sea salt for about 10 minutes. Then add all the berries and seeds, and top it up with the avocado chunks.
By all means, there is no reason to feel intimidated by raw food diet recipes, when you are ready to get more involved and make the financial investment for the necessary kitchen equipment. You will find pleasure in knowing that you are preparing natural foods and eating raw foods to help your body to work at an optimum level.
Now get this! It is important to understand that eating raw foods can be easy or hard, can be tasty or bland, and can even be healthy or otherwise; depending from where you get the information and resources. So, in order to get the best out of the raw food diet recipes, it is wise that you get your recipes from expert nutritionists.
