Curious about whether a raw food diet can benefit your body and refresh your mind? Here are the basics.
Going raw is a great way to make sure you’re getting the purest, most potent nutrients from the foods you eat. But aside from munching on a piece of whole fruit or crunching on uncooked veggies, how can you add more raw foods to your day? This simple seed and fruit “crumble” makes a satisfying snack as is, or try tucking some into a parfait or piling on your plate along with fresh fruit for breakfast. It’s the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy textures, with plenty of natural sweetness from spices, pure maple syrup and coconut oil.
You might know fennel for its flavorful seeds, often embedded in breads (think: rye) and sausages. But the underground bulb of this versatile veggie is another edible part with spicy-sweet taste that’s enjoyed cooked or raw—such as in this crunchy, colorful salad. Mixed with shredded green or purple cabbage and thinly sliced red onion, then tossed with a zesty, citrus-balsamic dressing, it’s a side dish that rivals any vinegar-based or creamy coleslaw that’s ever graced your plate.
If you’ve ever hardboiled eggs then tucked some back into the refrigerator’s egg tray to use later, you might be familiar with this dilemma: how do you know if an egg is raw or cooked? Before you tap, tap, tap on a shell and end up with a gooey mess all over your countertop, try this easy test to find out if an egg is ready to be peeled.
