Raw food diet diary

#60

I did not know the Raw Food Diet was a thing, until I saw this thread. Then I checked the rules, and it looks to me like most of my daily menu is already within the diet.

Examples of Raw Food 'cheats' include carpaccio, smoked salmon, and prawns (prawns cook below 48 celsius and therefore qualify).

Is yoghurt included in the diet?

Hemp and Almond are my preferred alternative forms of milk and yoghurt - both dairy free.

Manufactured produces may go through significant processing, but according to one BBC television programme, almond milk was used in the middle ages (apparently upscale produce for the wealthy) and that suggests to me it is possible to make almond milk simply by crushing the nuts.

How about Olive based spread?

(Before you get too excited, Hemp milk/yoghurt is made from the plant's seeds).

Dead animal flesh and animal products are a big No-No. (As well, the idea that you "need" protein is a myth.) In case you are of the mind that fish is not an animal, let me inform you that fish and seafood fall into the Animal category.

One who is concerned of their health would want to move toward a diet of foods that are energetic (electromagnetic).

There will be time and time again where the body is removing old stored up wastes from eating errors of the past, and this will feel very uncomfortable.

Don't need any alternative sources of milk. I sometimes buy cheese made from coconut milk. What is olive based spread. Olive oil is nice.

Life is very boring without tasty food.

The BBC Good Food website provides a different definition.

Live to eat ??
Or eat to live . . .

Even though Whole Fruits are your best foods, eating them Fully Ripe for best taste and nutritional value, you can search out many sites that create recipes by mixing it up, mimicking cooked-food dishes.

Use your Internet searching capabilities, my dear one!

As they muddy up the waters for everyone. To each his own, and each will reap as they sow.

Picked ripe and properly grown, which admittedly, is hard to come by in many, or even most, places on the nearly forsaken Earth.

Nuts, only sparingly, if at all. For detoxing, NO nuts. And many of the nuts are cooked.
Beans need cooking = NO
Rice needs cooking = NO

I avoid coconut oil cheese because supermarkets state the saturates is ~20%. Separately, the debate about coconut fat being good or bad for us seems swing back and forth every few years.

Good question about olive spread. I looked up the ingredients for a popular olive spread and discovered its not as pure as the packaging suggests: Water, Vegetable Oils (Rapeseed, Palm), Olive Oil (16%), Salt (1.3%), Flavouring, Vitamin E, Vitamin A&D, Colour (Carotenes), Vitamin B12

Do your research, pay attention to how you feel when doing certain things (eating in certain ways) and why you might be feeling that way. It's time for me to move on from here.

Healthy diet is confusing.
