Not just 50 percent Raw(one of my New Year’s Resolutions), but like FULL Raw, ALL the time.
You’re probably like, “Bianca’s cray.”
Sometimes I am. So what?
I’m serious. I’ve been eating Raw lately and LOVING it.
I love hummus so I seriously considered not going raw because of my love for hummus, but there’s some amazing Raw hummus’!
I got really into the Raw idea when I had a Raw buckwheat cracker.
I like crunchy, and when I think of raw I don’t think of crackers because they’re using toasted.
FitTip Fact #1: Food is considered Raw if it’s cooked below 118 degrees!
So the way they did this Raw “cracker” that I enjoyed is they cooked it in the sun, but kept an eye on the temperature! Yay!!! You can also dehydrate your food, aka take out the moisture, hence cracker like qualities.
Now I know you think Raw and you think salads, basically bird food.
NOT THE CASE!
I had kelp pasta the other day and it rocked.
Now, here are some DO’S and DON’TS
DO: Eat fiber! Eat your legumes! That’s black beans, pinto beans, lentils. You need fiber to help break down all that raw-ness.
Which leads me to:
DO #2: Get a digestive enzyme or yet papaya. Yes, it may be hard to process some that kale if you’re eating it 4 times a week. People take digestive enzymes all the time to aid in digestion.
Now, my fav the Don’ts!
DON’T: Don’t just get full on fat. Easier said than done. I love peanut butter, and being that you’re not consuming that much protien you’ll rech for fat to feel full. DON’T!
DON’T #2: Don’t starve yourself. People think Raw foods means less eating, EAT MORE!
Never thought I’d write that.
Seriously though. There’s a lot of great veggies and fruits AND hummus’. Go at it.
