Is the Raw Food Diet a Healthy Option?
I think 70-80% raw is great. 100% raw is not always appropriate, nor practical, nor necessary.
Raw grains can be tough for many people who have to first do a cleanse because their digestive system is not prepared for fully raw grains. Children also cannot handle too much fiber, and infants should have none at all. So it all depends; it is not a black or white question.
A great fresh, raw way to start your day with tons of nutrients and energy is to make a green drink, as detailed in my book Do You Have the Guts to Be Beautiful?
For healthy, fast meals, you can also get a copy of my small cookbook: Simple and Delicious: Recipes for Vitality.
