Raw Eating

PinExt Raw Eating

What is raw eating, raw foods or cooking raw foods mean? Simply put it is preparing foods that are "generally" prepared under 105 degrees.  For me it is plant based foods too.  I will be sharing many ideas for you, offer some ebooks and also coaching programs.

Bringing people back to basics and making is super simple with as few pieces of equipment is always my goal. I always try to offer alternatives so that this lifestyle or as I call it to most "almost raw food cooking" is not a a hard core program that will discourage you. Fast, delicious, organic (preferred) fresh fruits and veggies.

My announcements will be coming from my newsletter.  There is a sign up box for that on the site.

If it's not fun, count me out!  I want life to be fun and a good laugh even when you goof. I see raw foods sort of like oil painting. I took classes years ago. I was the elderly teachers first challenge and she retired after me.  I gave her a run for her bucks.  I made massive goofs and my teacher didn't let me leave her studio with something that didn't look right so she fixed it up.  Same thing with raw food cooking most times.  In this case really "practice does make perfect."  Here we don't aim to be perfect but IMperfect to have fun. So kiss "perfect" goodbye.

Hey Carol – loved this article.  Earlier this year I engaged a Raw Foods Coach named Sheree Clark here in the Des Moines, IA area.  She was wonderful.  I now have a vitamix, dehydrator, juicer and cuisenart.  I'd still pretty much an "eat everything" person however, now I just choose much more wisely.  I have pretty much eliminated all "white"  and processed food and have also been making food in my vitamix for my grandaughter.  She loves it  – she especially loves beans of any sort.  I loved it when I saw you had seen the "May I Be Frank" movie as you are the first person outside my own circle that I know that has seen it.  It inspired me to hire Sheree   -here's her info  Sheree Clark

HI Linda, Don’t recall saying I saw the movie, but maybe liked for other friends to help promote. Been into raw for a long time. Been vegan for decades; hubby healed of epilepsy – 6 weeks. Not familiar with Sheree. I do have a health ministry as well. I have all the “toys” you mentioned. Planning to make zucchini bread in the D; no recipe–don’t have and never made before. I lead a raw group for almost decade in Boulder, CO. Group interest is fizzling on their end. Wonderful you exposing your granddaughter to healthy eating. My friend wrote Rawsome. Thanks for sharing Sheree contact. Will look at her site. Oh, thanks for the big compliment!

Carol, thanks for sharing.  We have a vitamixer.  We mainly use it to grind whole grains and to mix our delicious NouriShakes.  Occasionally we use it for things like shredding and chopping or just mixing.  My bosch mixer also has a shredder, chopper, etc.  We are not vegan but eat very simple.  Have you heard of the pottenger cat study done years ago?  They gave one group of cats, strictly raw food and another group cooked food.  It was amazing the difference in the 3rd and 4th generation cats.  The cooked food cats had major health and mental issues.  An associate of mine, Dr. Jim McAfee has a good reference at http://www.imageawareness.com.

Pat, own a VM too and it took me long time before buying. I don’t do many grains but in the past had pricey Bosch and grain mill separately purchased for the best breads–6 loaves whole wheat at the same time. Wow. Brand new condition–used a wee bit and if I ever sell they will be like new. I use mine mainly smoothies and sauces/dips. I eat mainly raw foods so vegan category I suppose easier to say. Thanks for coming by Pat. Will check out your blog if up and comment.

Love your site, Carol.  A wealth of information here.  I have a Vitamix too.  It's my favourite kitchen tool, though I haven't tried grinding grains or anything like but love it for smoothies and sauces.  keep up the good work!

Thanks Melanie for your compliment about site. It is fun. I have not done grains either in VM as I don’t hardly eat them–just a choice. Hope to see you back here. Excited to learn more about you.
