New kid in raw.
Hey, I'm Amy, and I've started thinking recently about changing my diet a bit to include mostly raw foods. My digestive system simply HATES processed foods, and I'm sick of bloating etc!!
I've been vegan for the past 11 months, and I can't wait to take the next step.
Does anyone have any tips/meal plans/etc that would be useful??
Yep, go for for simple meals made out of fruit.
This way you avoid the processed food, and get tons of nutrients, and energy.
I also suggest reading 80 10 10 book.
Here is a simple recipe:
4 bananas in a blender with handful of your favorite berries or a whole kiwi skin on.
enough water to make it blend.
Welcome along, I'd recommend you start simple and see how things go.
Maybe you could have fruit for breakfast, or a green smoothie (banana, spinach, berries is a great one and you can't taste the greens!).
For lunch you could have a big salad with a nice dressing, then dinner could be something more adventurous like zucchini 'pasta' and sauce or a soup or even another salad/smoothie/fruit, depending on your time and/or abilities.
Snacks throughout the day could be fruit, crackers, veggies and dips, fresh juices, nuts/seeds, etc.

Hope this helps and good luck on your raw journey!
