It's almost like a no-brainer these days when you mention that we all need to be eating more raw foods.  Many studies have shown the benefits of add more fruits, vegetables and nuts to our eating plan.  Raw Food 101 goes into a bit of information regarding the raw food diet, reasons for doing it and how etc.  Today's post gives 10 helpful tips for eating raw.

  1. Include greens or organic vegetables when you eat your main meal or at least at some time during the day.
  2. Try to avoid eating later than 7pm to give your body time to digest the food before you go to sleep.
  3. Don't drink when you eat and no later than 30 minutes before eating.
  4. Keep yourself from getting hungry by snacking on high calorie foods such as nuts, seeds, avocado and the like.
  5. Eat a variety of foods so that your taste buds won't get bored and cause you to give up.
  6. Drink plenty of water.  This allows your body to flush out the toxins more quickly.
  7. Unless you're an all or nothing person, go slowly.  
  8. Remove junk foods in your home and eliminate the temptation to snack on them.  This tip goes in hand with tip #4.
  9. Keep other low caloric foods on hand for snacking as well.  Foods like baby carrots, apples, grapes etc.
  10. Plan your meals to ensure adequate intake of nutrients.
I hope this was helpful to you as you strive to eat well.
