Raw Food Course

raw foodJust back from a brilliant raw food course in Devon. Though I don’t plan to be 100% raw I certainly want it to be a bigger percentage of my daily diet.

Raw food is really nutritious and many people eating raw food feel so much more energised as all the vitamins, minerals, essential fats and plant enzymes are intact. For many it is a great way of losing extra weight.

It’s best to increase the amount of raw food you eat gradually so your digestive system can cope.

Veggie Dishes

veggie dishesTo keep calories lovely and low and health optimised why not try some purely veggie dishes – like a vegetable curry (without all the ghee!), or a light stir fry – try adding ginger and sliced water chestnuts for spice and crunch, a vegetable bake with plum tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, cauliflower and spinach – top with a low fat garlic and onion sauce + grate Parmesan all over and bake till browned.
