How Raw Are You? How Raw Should I Be?
I’ve mentioned before on my Facebook and Twitter pages that labels only help others – not really YOU (or me) on finding the right balance and combination of food for our Bioindividuality (meaning: all our food and lifestyle needs are different).
But I still get pinned all the time as the “raw foodist,” “vegan,” “health nut,” etc. To be honest, I’m not any of these things. I love raw food, I admire a vegan diet, I love healthy nuts (like almonds), but I’m none of these things 100% because what my body needs does not fit a label.
Some days I eat 100% raw, usually it’s more like 50%. I eat a plant-based diet, but occasionally eat eggs, fish, and very very once in a while, meat. I avoid dairy (except for the occasional-but-I-have-to-have-it ice cream) because my body doesn’t react well to dairy. My main health goal is to have something green at every meal: this is when I feel best.
How Raw Should You Be?
You probably know what I’m going to say….Bioindividuality. But I’ll spice it up for you here.
Our society eats too much cooked food. Humans are the only species on earth that cook their food. Every other animal eats raw food and THRIVES in the wild. Plus, raw food has way more nutrients and enzymes – the source of all bodily functions. For this reason, I believe everyone can benefit from raw food in the diet.
That being said, your percentage, type of raw foods, and whether you eat vegan-raw or non-vegan raw depends on YOU.
One of my coaching specialties is coaching people through raw diets and finding the best balance. If raw food is something you’re interested in, you may want to set up a free consultation with me.
