Got any fun factoids about fruit? Please share in the comments below!
Go raw and be fit,
P.S. While the best raw food diet is predominated by fruit, you must also consume tender greens like romaine, spinach, and celery if you want to thrive on raw foods. Ideally, this means consuming at least one pound of greens every day on average.
Yep, that’s right. A full 16 ounces or just over 450 grams every day.
Personally, I find eating this much greens (or more) incredibly enjoyable. I get in my greens just about every night in a humongous savory salad. Or I just eat the greens plain with some fruit, taking a bite of fruit, then a bite of greens, then fruit, then greens, and so on.
And I eat it all without any salt, spices, or other unhealthy condiments.
I know, I know, I know! That’s far too much food and far too bland without salt and spices!
Don’t worry, fellow raw foodist Roger Haeske’s got the solution…
These “stews” are full of greens and deliciousness, yet completely salt-free and low-fat! They’re absolutely perfect if you’re new to raw and can’t yet stomach the thought (or sight!) of a super big salt-free salad.
And if you can, then just do what I do and make a double batch!
