Raw Fruits and Vegetables Diet Plan
If you like the idea of eating raw, you need a great raw food diet plan to start. A balanced diet plan is at least 75% raw. A great plan is healthy and will help you both to succeed on and enjoy raw food.
But most of all, the best diet plan is the plan, you're most likely to follow. If that means you'll only succeed on a if you add animal foods, your daily cup of coffee or non food, you should keep eating them. If you can go cold turkey, 100% raw fantastic, but realize that very few people can make such change overnight.....
In addition, the best raw food diet plan is:
FUN - The plan must be fun! Full of recipes you love.
EASY - The plan must be easy and realistic to follow.
BALANCED - The plan should have the right balance of , good fats and carbs.
You must have fun on this diet in order to succeed. Fun foods may be raw versions of the foods you like already. Such as guacamole, pesto, salsa, ice creams, , hot chocolate, sashimi, raw cheese, raw vegan nut cheese, you're favorite salad, raw granola.
Other great fun foods you may like are super foods like goji berries, raw chocolate, raw honey, maca, young coconuts etc. In the recipe section of this website I'll add these recipes for you to try.
It's probably best not to start out with complicated recipes that require dehydration, sprouting or other raw techniques that you don't know yet or don't have the tools for. They may take long in the beginning and might frustrate you. Smoothies with super foods, juices and raw versions of foods you already know and like are easiest. This increases your chances of success on the raw food diet plan.
You're best raw food diet plan is one that is balanced. It should have carbohydrates, fats and protein, as well as other important nutrients.
Raw Food Nutrients
Where does a raw foodist get his protein, carbs and fats and how much of each should you eat? Below I'll describe the raw food sources of these important food elements.
The main source of carbohydrates are . starches (carrots) and grains.
The main source of protein are germinated nuts (almonds are best), seeds, grains and green leafy vegetables. I highly recommend hemp seed as an excellent source of protein. Also make sure you germinate your seeds and nuts, otherwise you're unlikely to absorb the protein.
How do you germinate the seeds and nuts? Just before you go to bed, you put the seeds or nuts in a cup and add purified water. The next morning they're ready to eat. (Hemp seeds are the only seeds you don't have to germinate).

You're getting info. from a board that is loaded with supposed experts. Virtually everyone on this board has no training or certification.
Raw foods has little or no science behind it. It is true that a plant-based diet is healthy. One that avoids meat and dairy is healthy (if properly planned).
The theory that cooking the food ruins the enzymes and that leads to disease is purely unscientific. However, the diet can be healthy if you eat the right foods. A lot of these raw faddists, err raw foodists eat only fruits with a little bit of vegetables. Essentially, they are fruitarians
