The raw vegan diet is becoming increasingly popular these days – and for valid reasons too! Since eating a diet high in raw living foods has been discovered to cure chronic diseases, slow down the aging process, heal the skin, and greatly assist with weight loss – many people are opting for this lifestyle as their means to get healthy. Weight loss is probably the most common reason as to why people decide to go on this diet. Let's break down the raw vegan diet into its staple foods and recipes to discover why weight loss is inevitable.
Raw Vegan Juices & Smoothies
A large freshly made juice is very filling and often, is enough for an endless meal. But just because it's filling does not mean it is high in calories – no, in fact it is quite the opposite! Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in calories and contain virtually no fat or oil content and are there before the ideal slimming food. Raw smoothies are also great for weight loss, since they can fill you up for breakfast and fuel your body until lunch time!
Raw Vegan Meal Recipes
There are a large variety of raw vegan meal recipes for you to try out nowdays that have been created by professional raw vegan chefs. These include dips, "soups", salads, dehydrated crackers and breads, sauces, open-sandwiches, "sushi," "pastas" and much more. These raw superfood recipes have been designed to be "clones" of the real thing – only one hundred times healthier! Most of these foods are based primarily on fresh vegetables, which are low in calories and high in fiber. This is ideal for slimming. Also they often contain sprouted grains, nuts and seeds which offer your body essential nutrients including protein, fiber, and healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which will keep your body full and satisfied for hours. This long-thinking satiation is what raw foodists refer to as being "powered by raw energy." Raw energy will keep you going for hours without your body becoming tired and lethargic quickly – which is the opposite of most foods today.
Raw Vegan Dessert & Cake Recipes
Have you ever made a vegan raw cake recipe before? If you have not had the privilege to do so yet – you are in for a treat! A slab of raw vegan cake may look absolutely evil, but as we all know, looks can be deceiving. A raw vegan cake or dessert is always only made from natural, raw superfoods including soaked nuts and seeds, cocoa powder, dates, fruits, sea salt, coconut meat, bananas, berries, agave nectar … in fact, there is so much goodness inside a raw dessert or cake that you could seriously eat a piece for breakfast without feeling the slightest bit guilty! There are no refined sugars, so your satiety will last a long time – much unlike the typical dessert and cake today. Also, due to the nutrient-density in a raw cake or dessert, you will develop minimal cravings for unhealthy foods since your nutrient quota will be fulfilled.
