As some people try to adopt a Raw Diet they get discouraged if they eat something cooked and give it all up thinking that they are a failure and can’t do it. Whoa Nelly! That kind of extreme “All-Or-Nothing” thinking is too harsh. Where is the love? Give yourself a break and realize that every little bit of raw, fresh, whole, delicious, nutritious food you add to your diet is a step in the right direction.
2. Eat raw for breakfast and lunch, then have a healthy cooked dinner. Fruits and smoothies are easy to substitute for breakfast and a big salad is great for lunch. Dinners are a little more difficult because you are usually eating with your family and you are probably used to having a heavier meal. As you discover good raw dinner recipes and learn how great it feels to be satisfied but not stuffed and tired after eating dinner you can switch to a raw dinner, too. 3. Choose one day a week to eat all RAW. After a couple of weeks add a second “All Raw” day, then add another, until soon you’re all raw every day!
Just do what you can – improve a little every day – and love yourself enough to take care of YOU. You’re awesome and you are worth it!!
