Raw Food Roadblock

-

I’ve written before about the benefits of the raw food detox diet before

And I’ve shown you some good ways to keep motivated and stick to a raw food diet.

Since I’ve made the switch I cannot say enough about it’s benefits,
but at the same time, I understand that to many it still seems
unattainable and even undesirable.  If you’d like to make the switch,
or at least incorporate raw foods more often in your diet,  the task
of learning something new and changing habits is a challenge.  But
don’t be fooled into telling yourself it’s too complicated or too much
work!  Once you get rolling, you’ll wonder how you ever had this
misconception.  The other big obstacle is the picture of yourself
living like a rabbit, always hungry and constantly grazing on
tasteless greens.  Believe me, you can feel more fulfilled by a raw
diet than on the typical diet today, not just nutritionally, but taste
wise as well.

One of the best ways I’ve found to get over these mental road blocks
is to simply pick up a cookbook and get motivated by what you read.
When I was starting out, I was fascinated by the information on
enzymes and the chemical processes in my body, but the simple act of
reading and seeing vibrant, colorful pictures, and then trying a
recipe was the real, tangible reason I was able to get into the raw
food habit and the reason I stick to it and never feel deprived.

Here are a few book tips and recipe links that will help you take the
leap running:

Ani Phyo’s four cookbooks offer recipes full of tantalizing flavor and
stunning colors.  Just flipping through one of her books will motivate
you to try a raw food recipe if not jump into the raw food lifestyle.
Her recipes are not only delicious, but easy and perfect for
beginners. She even has a dessert book so full of rich and decadent
treats, I have friends who don’t eat raw who use the cookbook
regularly to entertain.  Check out: Ani’s Raw Food Essentials, Ani’s
Raw Food Desserts, Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen, and Ani’s Raw Food Asia.
And, you can see some of her recipes now here.

We Like It Raw features gorgeous full color pictures and delicious,
creative recipes from the Raw Food community

index.  Choose by main ingredients, course/dish, or nationality.

the top flowery, her creative recipes and gorgeous pictures show the
true depth and versatility you can get from your raw food
