Raw & Living Food
Changing to Raw Food
At the beginning of 2008 I was somewhat under the weather for various reasons although I’d been eating what I thought was a very healthy balanced diet for years. I decided I had more changes to make. I stumbled into the world of raw foods, a way of eating plant foods that are mainly or entirely raw.
I explored further and found ‘Raw and Living Foods’. The added dimension here is soaking and sprouting seeds, nuts, grains, lentils and some beans. When soaked, nuts and seeds are easier to digest. When sprouted, seeds, lentils, some beans and grains change so that they are many times more nutritious. Once you know about this, why not make these foods central?
In my enthusiasm I went to the Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida in spring 2008 and trained as a Hippocrates Health Educator.
Very nice it was too, warm sunny, lovely people from all round the world and buffet banquets that I didn’t have to cook!! It was magic watching many people getting better in a short time, some from very serious illnesses, and gaining in strength, energy and positivity.
I have carried on with what I learned at Hippocrates, growing wheatgrass for juicing, juicing vegetables, sprouting foods, learning to make delicious raw meals that are at least as interesting and varied as any cooked food and making up my own recipes.
What I am up to
I share skills and food with others in presentations, workshops and potluck meetings. I keep making amazing meals, reading and talking to people and I’m busy with my raw food recipe book and working towards a book on wellness, which is about Raw and Living food and related aspects of all-round wellness.
People who make these food changes often find that along with changes in their health – and many can recover from illness, achieve their ideal weight, gain much more energy and generally feel much more at ease in their bodies – their whole lives have to change. They may start to connect, or reconnect, with important visions of what they really want their lives to be about. It may be time to get beyond obstacles such as fear in order to go forward in the best possible way. Relationships, occupation, how and where you live, values, goals… many aspects of life may need updating.
