What is so great about raw food diet is that you need not be a chef in order to prepare a menu. All you need are the essential ingredients for your sumptuous raw meal for the day. This is one reason why this raw diet is slowly gaining popularity among ordinary people and celebrity as well. Not only that it is easy to prepare but it can certainly change your looks and how you feel about yourself.
A good tactic to start with in planning a raw food diet menu is to be educated about the raw diet. It is one way to appreciate this kind of diet and having the necessary knowledge will help you to enjoy the food and value it more because you know how your health will greatly benefit from it. However, you have to be open to the fact that the switch from the usual diet composed mainly of meat and foods rich in carbohydrates to a raw one can be easier said than done. Thus, the technique is to do it gradually. You can introduce a raw food diet in your breakfast for a couple of months so that you can get used to eating raw foods first. When you get fully acquainted with it, you can have it in your lunch and then dinner. Also, it will be helpful to practice consuming fruit and vegetable juices. Again, do it gradually so that your body will get used to taking in pure nutrients.
Once you are already used to consuming raw foods in all your meals, you can now consider preparing a raw food diet menu.
A fine appetizer
Just like a regular menu, your raw food diet menu must also start with a fine, savory and bite size appetizer. A good start for an appetizer may include raw vegetables such as carrots served in bite size. You can be more creative by serving mushrooms stuffed with tomatoes, cucumber, cilantro, unsalted nuts and added with some herbs.
A lavish middle
Do not limit your main entrée to vegetables only. A living burger, vegetable lasagna or veggie pizza is a good choice. You can add mashed potato for the side dish.
A delectable dessert
The best way to end this meal is to have a delectable dessert. Fruit platter is always a favorite but you can try a fruity pie.
All it takes to come up with a raw food diet menu is careful planning. Know the fruits and vegetables that go well together for you to create a sumptuous menu that you will surely enjoy.
